A Comparison of Infrared Grills with Traditional Gas Grills

With the return of sun and warm weather, it’s time to pull the old barbecue out again. If you’re a fan of outdoor cooking and grilling, you know how important a quality grill, such as Saber grills, can be in cooking that perfect piece of meat. If you’re in the market for a new barbecue for this season, you may be wondering what the difference between infrared grills and gas grills are.

Gas grills use propane or natural gas to create a heat source and cook through convection. As the sorrounding air is heated, it rises and circulates the food, causing it to eventually cook. These traditional gas grills are time tested and an excellent option.

An infrared grill works differently. Infrared grills do not heat the sorrounding air. Instead, these grills heat a solid surface which then radiates infrared waves to the food which is sitting above on the grill. Some heat is radiated as well, but far less than a traditional gas grill.

One of the main advantages of an infrared grill is that little air is circulated. Hot air tends to dry out food, so traditional gas grills have an easier time in resulting in dry meat. Infrared grills help the fold retain their moisture, resulting in juicier outcomes.

Infrared grills provide other benefits compared to traditional gas grills. Infrared grills are able to preheat quicker, maintain even heat when cooking (not hot spots), cook food faster, and are more energy efficient, using less gas (or electricity depending on the grill).

With all these advantages, if you have not considered trying out an infrared grill, this spring or summer might be the time.
