Gas Grill vs. Charcoal Grill
Ah, the eternal debate... gas vs. charcoal. Everyone has their own preference, so there is no clear and defined answer, but we can assist in providing you with the pros and cons of gas vs. charcoal. You decide for yourself which you think best fits your lifestyle and your flavor palette!
Gas is faster, easier, & healthier. With a gas grill you can expect convenience. With easy to use temperature controls and spark ignition start up, you can get to cooking within minutes following a quick preheat. No coal necessary, thus eliminating any need to continually keep the fire burning. Similarly, temperature control allows you to cook a wide variety of items from hefty meats that require a high heat to delicate fruits & veggies that require something much more mild. Not to mention gas grills have also proven to be healthier for the human body. Meat grilled by gas has proven to have less carcinogens than that of meat which has been charred by a charcoal grill.
Prepare for a more complex assembly with gas. While a gas grill may be easier to use once it is set up, the assembly can prove to be a little more complicated than a charcoal grill. A charcoal grill can be popped up with ease, while the gas grill requires you to connect to a gas line or propane tank. If this doesn't bother you, then it sounds like to pros might outweigh the cons! Also be aware that given the assembly, the portability of a gas grill is also much more limited or in some cases non-existent.
Make your food hotter & more flavorful at a lower price with charcoal. Some prefer the charcoal grill for the extreme heat at which you can cook your food, often exceeding that capable of a gas grill (unless you're willing to shell out a little extra cash). Temperatures can easily achieve 600 degrees, getting up to even 700 degrees, giving meat a nice crisp char desired by so many. Similarly, you can expect a much more smoky and flavorful cook out of a charcoal grill. As the meat sits in its chamber of heat, the smoke from the charcoal mixed with the juices of the cut soak into the meat, ultimately creating something much more savory than you will get with a gas grill. All of this can be achieved for a lower price than a gas grill as well, although you will have to remember that the prep work to realize this can be a little more difficult.
Charcoal grills take time and incur some unexpected costs. While the payoff may be worth the trouble, take note that a charcoal grill may require some extra time each time you cook with it. Expect that a charcoal grill will take longer to heat up, sometimes 15-20 minutes to reach proper cooing temperature. And beyond that, the clean up process can be much more intense than with a gas grill. Whereas a gas grill only requires you to brush off the cooking surface, with a charcoal grill you will also need to empty the grill of the excess charcoal and finish it off with a scrubbing of the base. Not to mention, the charcoal/fuel costs can become costly over time with 20lbs of charcoal typically lasting for only 3 cooks or so.
SO... while each outdoor grill has their pros and their cons, the decision ultimately comes down to what is important to you. Are you looking for convenience and versatility? Then perhaps it is best that you look into options for gas grills. Are you looking for a more flavorful cook at a lower price? Then maybe it is best to go for a charcoal grill. Either way, we are certain that when you are shopping here at Sawyer Twain we will have an option to suit your needs.
