Here’s a short guide to help you out:
- Heat. If you want your food cooked faster and juicier, the higher the BTU (British Thermal Unit), the better. At least 12,000 BTUs per burner is often advisable.
- Lifestyle. You can’t really say that a gas grill is better than charcoal because people have different lifestyles, and lifestyle can definitely dictate what grill fits you best. Gas grills are better if all you want to cook are burgers and hotdogs, and if you always want your food fast. It heats quickly, but would, of course, lack that charcoal flavor that a lot of people look for. A charcoal grill would be the ultimate choice for someone who takes their food seriously and loves the flavor of meat cooked slowly. Of course, you would also need to have a lot of time in your hands as it heats much slower than a gas grill.
- Grates. A stainless steel grate would produce better heat and more pronounced grill marks on your meat. Cast iron is also a good material, as long as it is thick enough.
- Cleaning. Gas grills are definitely easier to clean, as you don’t have any charcoal to worry about. Regardless if you choose the latter over the former though, cleaning would be okay if you have the tools to help you out. The Magic Stone grill cleaner would work great for any type of grill, which means that cleaning is not really an issue if you have it.
Gas, or charcoal? You decide. Just make sure that you have the Magic Stone grill cleaner to make the cleanup after the feast a whole lot easier.
