When it comes to throwing the best 4th of July barbeque or cookout you should be primarily concerned with one thing: FOOD! After all, the backbone of any great barbeque is great food. And you cannot cook great food without the right grill.
But what grill best fits your needs…Charcoal or Gas?
Charcoal Grills vs. Gas Grills: The Great Grill Debate
- Charcoal grills give your food a smokier, intense flavor.
- You can even burn wood in a charcoal grill to give your food more flavor.
- It’s easier to smoke in a charcoal grill.
- Charcoal grills require more preparation. You have to light the charcoal briquettes and then wait 15-30 minutes before beginning to cook.
- It is harder to control the temperature of a charcoal grill, though it is possible on nicer models with built in air vents.
- When you are done cooking on a charcoal grill, you will need to dispose of the ashes and burnt charcoal briquettes.
- Gas burns cleaner than charcoal, but will not give your food that smoky taste.
- Gas grills are easy to ignite and require little time to heat up.
- Gas grills provide a constant and consistent heat, something that charcoal grills cannot promise.
- Once dinner is over, there’s no ashy mess to clean up.
In the end, the choice is yours. Do you prefer convenience or smoky flavor?
