When it comes to backyard barbeque is it the meat, the grill or the chef? Actually, it’s a combination of all three. You want to make sure you’ve got a good cut of beef, chicken, pork or fish that is seasoned just right. The best thing a BBQ chef can do is get out of the way and let the heat do its thing. That leaves you with getting the right grill. Is your old grill still up to the task after so many summer seasons of cooking? If you’re going to be shopping for a new grill this summer, it’s time to review the basics and get armed with helpful information.
The first decision is whether to go gas or charcoal. Old school BBQ would be with a charcoal grill and there are many devotees who swear by the briquette. However, when it comes to fast lighting, easy clean up and even temperatures you can’t beat a gas grill. Using a gas grill doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all those delicious smoky flavors of cooking over mesquite wood. All you have to do is gather up some of those wood chips in foil, spritz them with water and place them on the grill. You’ll get that smoke infused with your meat for sure!
A key feature to look out for on your new grill would be a cast-iron grate for the cooking surface. That’s because they heat up quickly and evenly. The top of the line would be a porcelain-coated cast iron grill. That will run you a few extra bucks but it will be worth the effort. There are some extra “bells and whistles” like a rotisserie which might seem like a cool thing to have but if you’re not going to use it why pay for it? Having a side burner for things like baked beans or sauces is a good idea. So is a counter surface. If hot dogs and burgers will be a favorite item, make sure to get a grill with a bun warmer. Nothing beats a toasted roll!
