The Right Grill for Every Situation

Grilling is a great all-American pastime and an activity many people all over the country take very seriously. Quick weeknight dinners, summer barbecues, and casual get-togethers with friends all taste better when you're grilling up meats, seafood, veggies, and creative dishes on a quality piece of equipment. Having the right grill helps you cook the best possible food when feeding an army, or just a few family members. Use these tips to choose the best type of grill for you:

  • Consider the number of people you cook for. When choosing a gas or charcoal grill, you want to ensure you've got enough room on the fire for every burger, steak, chicken breast, and side dish.
  • Pick a small gas grill or Weber electric grill for easy clean-up and quick cooking. These grills are ideal for families that love cooking outdoors
  • Shop for a charcoal grill if you prefer the charred taste and don't mind a little extra clean-up. Many people prefer the rich flavor that comes from charcoal, and you can even mix in wood for added smoke flavor.
  • Grab a smoker for barbecue and roasts. Drum smokers are ideal for turning out competition quality meats.
