Gas vs charcoal grills. It’s a debate that can get grown men (and women!) out of their chairs, passionately weighing in on why they think they’re version is better. If you’re solidly on the side of those who love charcoal grills, you need to know what to look for when it’s time to buy one.
How To Pick Round Charcoal Grills
When most people think of charcoal grills, they think of the round bowl shape. The best type of charcoal grill is made with a heavy gauge porcelain lid, bowl and an ergonomic hinged lid so you never have to worry about putting the lid on the dirty ground when you’re checking on what’s cooking inside.
The best charcoal grills also include special touches like accurate temperature gauges so that you don’t need to worry about the temperature inside. They also have hinged, multi-level cooking grates so that you can easily add charcoal without removing what’s cooking on the grate.
How To Pick Stainless Steel Charcoal Grills
If you’re looking for a stainless steel charcoal grill, make sure that the one you choose is made with solid, stainless steel construction and comes with a roll top lid that’s designed to move smoothly. This will ensure that it’s easy to check on what’s inside, even if you have your hands full and need to open the lid with one hand. Also look for a double walled front loading door so you can easily refuel your grill and a rear charcoal burner so that you don’t have to worry about coming into contact with the hot coals during refuelling.
