Summer is almost here, and perhaps you’ve been thinking of buying that barbecue or grill to get for your patio, but don’t have a clue on what type of barbecue will suit your needs. Perhaps you may need to know a little about the different types of barbecues and what they’re good for, before you make your decision. The last thing you want to do is buy a barbecue or grill solely because it was on special, to only find out after using it a couple of times that it doesn’t suit your needs and ends up rusting away in your patio.
Here are the different types of Barbecues you can get:
You can get a whole range of gas grills out there that will do the job for you, when it comes to smoking and grilling. The only downside is that they're a little expensive, and these grills wont last forever or cook well if they’re in the $250 price range, but they should be ok to grill your sausages and burgers for a couple of years.
Smokers can come in gas, wood, charcoal or electric. You will need to be at the grill tending to the fires and watching the temperatures. If you don’t have the time to tend to what’s on the grill, then perhaps a grill may not be for you.
The Charcoal Grills
The good thing about having a charcoal grill is the awesome flavour and authentic grilling experience that you get as opposed to a gas grill. The only downside is that these grills are a little more expensive to operate due to higher charcoal prices. With charcoal grills you can do a whole range of cooking, from smoking to rotisserie cooking.
Very common grill that you can pick up in the supermarket, it’s very practical and easy to pack. If you’re planning to spend the day out with your family and friends in a park or the beach. Portable grills also come in gas, electric and charcoal models and help you perform almost any grilling task. Modern portable grills have been designed to give you those real smoke flavors, and can also slow roast or turn out large amounts of food.
