What Should I Look For When Choosing a Charcoal Grill?in Outdoor Living
If you have never owned a charcoal grill, or not looked to purchase one for awhile, choosing a new grill can be a tough decision. There are a lot of things to consider, and factors that go into making a good, well-educated decision. Here are some of the things to look for when choosing a charcoal grill.
Size of the grill - What will you be cooking?
First and foremost, a charcoal grill is for cooking. So what will you cook? Are you sticking with the typical hamburgers, hotdogs, steak and chicken, or will you be making a whole turkey, or want to smoke some ribs? What about side items? How many people will you be cooking for?
A larger grill takes more charcoal to heat up and is wasteful if you only ever cook a couple small burgers at a time. However, if you are always cooking for large gatherings or a big family, and like to do the entire meal on the grill, make sure you choose a larger grill.
How is it cleaned?
Choose a charcoal grill that is easy to clean. You don’t want a grill that requires being turned over to clean it out. Choose a grill that has some way to quickly and easily clean it out.
Look at Durability
It is also to look for a charcoal grill that is made tough, and made to last. Charcoal grills are an investment, and it should last more than one season. Choose a grill that is durable. Ceramic grills are a great choice, as they don’t rust or wear like traditional steel. Make sure it is thick material. Also, look for high quality stainless or cast iron cooking grates.
