Currently, the mainstream BBQ grill still primarily use charcoal, but more and more people are beginning to use gas grills. Today, we will summarize the advantages of both, helping you make your choice.
Charcoal grill enthusiasts will never choose gas grills because they have their reasons. Charcoal grills can reach intense temperatures of 482℃ on the surface of the meat, much hotter than standard gas grills without infrared burners. With such high temperatures, the surface of steak and lamb chops can turn into crispy goodness while maintaining a red or pink interior.
Another advantage of the charcoal BBQ grill for sale is smoke, which is an interesting by-product of combustion. The smoke produced by charcoal contains a wide range of flavour molecules, especially when starting to ignite. Gas fuel, on the other hand, only produces simple separation. If they burn completely, there is only water and carbon dioxide, with no flavor. To generate smoke, a gas grill must add wood. When the fat and juice of food drip onto burning charcoal, a large amount of smoke is produced. If the smoke dissipates quickly, it does not significantly change the flavor of fast-cooked foods such as hot dogs, beef burgers, and even lean steaks. If it is a thick steak or chicken pieces, the flavor produced by smoke can be detected. If you use your grill for a long time and low temperature smoke BBQ, there will be a significant difference in flavor.
Gas grills are more convenient and easy to control, easy to start, and can be heated up in 10 to 15 minutes. It is easy to maintain a stable temperature and heat up or cool down. If there are two or more burners, it is easy to establish a dual-zone BBQ. Temperature control is essential for good BBQ, and it is also very easy to achieve on a gas grill. Gas grills are also more manageable to clean and usually allow for use on a balcony.
Although gas grills are slightly better at maintaining a stable temperature, they are not perfect, and the oven temperature will be affected by the environmental temperature. However, if you are familiar with your grill, it is easy to control the temperature. On a grill with three burners, you may use a hot area to grill meat, a medium heat area to grill vegetables, and a low area to place grilled food. The heat diffuser above the burner prevents flames from being used.
If you just want a simple, convenient, and no unexpected, no-mess BBQ when you go out, it is recommended to buy a gas grill with infrared burners. If you like red meat and smoked flavour, without a doubt, buy a charcoal BBQ portable grill. If the taste is the most important factor, then buy charcoal. If you have the budget and space, it is recommended to buy both. This way, poultry, fish, vegetables, pizza, bread, and quick-cooked foods can be grilled on a gas grill, while all red meat can be grilled on a charcoal grill. Some new grills have one side with gas and one side with charcoal. This is an excellent idea, but most of the products on the market have certain problems, preventing the advantages of both grilling methods from being utilized.
