There are many things to consider when you try to make your decision. Keep reading and learn the advantages of each.
The most common grill nowadays is the gas grill. Powered by propane gas this type of grill has many advantages. The biggest benefit is the convenience factor. Gas grills are ready to go almost instantly and cook food fast.
This type of grill makes it convenient to cook on almost all of the time. The disadvantage to a gas grill is that it adds no flavor to your food. You do not get any of the flavor of a charcoal or wood burning grill.
The next type of grill is a charcoal grill. The great thing about this type is that you get more flavor in your food from the wood or charcoal. It is also more traditional and may bring back family memories from your past.
The downside to the charcoal grill is that it takes longer. You have to preheat the coals or wood before using it.
The last type of grill and my favorite is the smoker. Smokers have all of the same benefits of a charcoal grill but they can also be used to smoke meats. There is nothing better than a brisket that has been in a smoker for 6 hours. Smokers have all of the same negatives as a charcoal grill however so they do require more time.
Whichever type you decide I am sure you will be happy. Just be careful and shop around for the best deal. Prices can vary greatly from store to store. Pick a grill that is reasonably priced but not cheap. Like everything else, you get what you pay for.
