Grills — Charcoal or gas?
The debate over which one is better has been going on for years. Most grilling experts say that charcoal cooks better. There’s just nothing like a steak that has that flavor that only cooking on charcoal can give. Lighting a charcoal grill can be difficult at times. Plus, if you live in an area that has a burn ban, you can’t always cook on a charcoal grill because of the flame ups and the fly away bits that sometimes charcoal can have.
Cooking on a gas grill has it’s advantages. They are easy to light. You can control the flame. Areas with burn bans often will allow gas grill cooking during the ban. They are easier to use in the winter months.
Tips When Buying a Grill for Dad
- Does Dad like charcoal or gas?
- What does Dad like to cook on the grill? If Dad likes to cook hamburgers for a large crowd, then you would need to get a grill with a larger cooking surface. If Dad likes to occasionally smoke a brisket, look for a grill that can serve as a smoker and a grill. If Dad is a fan of rotisserie chicken, then he might like a grill with a rotisserie attachment.
- Where is Dad going to store the grill? If Dad is going to store the grill in a garage or storage shed, you will want to consider getting a grill that has wheels or is easy to move.
