Charcoal and Gas Grills

Charcoal and gas grills, otherwise known as barbecue grills, when I was growing up were typically an outdoor charcoal grill or a portable grill called the Hibachi grill. I remember my Dad grilling steaks nearly every Sunday afternoon. When we were on the back patio, Dad would fill the grill with Kingsford charcoal and lighter fluid. We would watch the flames start off from the match that was dropped in the grill on the charcoal and swirl its way around the pile of coals till they were flaming. Once the charcoals were gray and hot, Dad would come out with a plate of steaks and place them on the grill. If we were at the beach Dad would perform the same ritual using the Hibachi grill. We would listen to the ocean waves crash on the Maine beach as we watched Dad grill the family’s steaks.

Today my children have seen me use several different types of grills. Charcoal and gas grills are quite common around our house. We have a charcoal grill, and a gas grill, and an electric grill and a Smoker grill. Plain and simple, grilling is no longer a Sunday afternoon ritual. Grilling in our house is just about an everyday occurrence. Within a split second everyone will agree on “cooking out” on the grill for lunch and dinner, daily! Grilling isn’t just limited to the outside either. We have one of the George Foreman grills, an electric grill, that’s great for grilling indoors too.

Let’s take a look at grilling benefits of charcoal and gas grills. Both of these types of grills are for outdoor grilling. While gas grills give you the convenience of easy lighting and being ready for barbecue in 0-6 seconds (just turn on the gas and press the igniter) charcoal grills seem to be worth the 20-25 minute wait. If you like this type of convenience check out more about the best outdoor gas grills

Although you will read that there are independent tests saying there is no difference between the taste of food cooked on a charcoal grill over a gas grill, I haven’t met anyone who has yet to agree with that test. What we all do agree upon is that a gas grill is quicker to get your barbecue going with and does do a great job. We also agree there is more flavor with charcoal. Now you see why we have so many grills.

Now the ultimate in gas grill convenience is the natural gas gas grill. A natural gas grill gets its gas right from the natural gas that comes from your house so there is never a need to refill a tank like with a propane gas grill. However, and I don’t know about the “independent studies”, most people I’ve talked with that have a natural gas grill that had a propane gas grill say they experience weaker heat disbursement and that the fire just doesn’t seem as hot. Personally I can’t comment.

So if you are looking to buy a grill, let me encourage you to not make a choice over a charcoal grill or a gas grill, but rather decide which one you want first. Realize you can’t go wrong with either purchase, although you do want to do your research. Which are the best charcoal grills and the best gas grills for you and your family? Check out our Grill Reviews. These will help you chose the grill or grills that are right for you at the best price. Remember you can never go wrong with charcoal or gas grills.
