Outdoor Grill Buying Advice

A an outdoor grill consists of a cooking surface, typically made of parallel metal bars or a porcelain-covered metal grid, over a fuel source capable of generating intense heat, usually up to temperatures of 500 degrees Fahrenheit (260C) or more. The two most common outside grills are charcoal grills and gas grills.

Outdoor Grill
Charcoal grill: A charcoal grill is composed of a cooking surface, a charcoal container, a grill support, a hood to cover the grill and additional tiered cooking surfaces. When you burn the charcoal, the minerals of it produces a very intense heat with very little smoke, making charcoal very useful as a cooking fuel that will not overwhelm the flavor of the food with the elements found in normal wood smoke.

Gas grill: A gas grill consists of the same components like a charcoal grill except a hood. The gas source is connected to the valve regulators via the main hose. The gas grill is ignited by gas, oxygen and spark. The gas comes in propane tank or the natural-gas pipeline, the oxygen comes from the air, and the spark comes from the grill starter (or called the igniter). The majority of gas grills use metal tanks full of liquid propane (LP) gas. LP gas has the advantage of coming in a portable tank, and it is available nearly everywhere, whereas natural gas uses a pipe connected to the gas main at your home.

Outdoor grilling can be fun but people have to clean the the gril often. Turn the grill on “high?and let it “cook?for 10 to 15 minutes with the lid closed. Turn off the grill and let it cool slightly. If you use a gas grill, you must check there is no gas leak or blockage. When the grill is completely cool, you should begin to clean it. Clean the inside with spray-on over cleaner and wait for a moment so that the cleaner is capable of softening the grease and dirt. Wipe the cleaner off with a paper towel. Then use a warm detergent and water solution and a non-abrasive cloth to wash both the inside and the outside. Rinse and wipe dry.

Buying Tips:
Every type of outdoor grill has its advantages and disadvantages. Select according to your cooking styles and cooking habits. An electric grill is also popular nowadays since it is portable, small enough to place on a table or countertop and even can be used indoors. An infrared grilling does not dry the meat out and can generate a much higher temperature (up to 1,650 F / 899 C) than any other type of grill. A charcoal grill is less expensive than a gas grill and it can cook food with very good taste but you have to spend more time in cleaning it. A gas grill makes the cooking less complicated and you can choose it for frequent uses. Decide what your needs are and choose one.
