Choosing The “Right” Grill

With the nicer weather, comes thoughts of grilling out and enjoying some delicious bbq with friends and family.  Are you thinking of buying a new grill for this season?  Are you overwhelmed with all of the choices out there on the market for grills?   There’s one thing to remember, you aren’t just buying a grill you’re buying an outdoor accessory that will either make or break you and your family’s love for grilled food!



The first thing you want to think about is do you want a gas grill or charcoal?  Let’s explore some things about each of these!

Gas grills, of course, are easier to cook on and a standard 20lb propane tank can last for up to 20 hours of cooking time.  It’s always good to have a back-up propane tank, because it never fails, you go to grill dinner and your current tank will be empty!

Charcoal grills are a little more work with changing out the coals after each time you use the grill and you very well may get a face full of ash!

There are many features to consider on grills such as rotisserie options, built in thermostat, a shelf on the inside, a smoke box, lights, side burners, hanging space for forks and brushes.  You also want to think about how big of a grill do you have room for or do you want a portable grill that can be taken to tailgate parties, camping and still be used at home.  A good grill is an essential to every backyard!

Choosing the right grill for you all depends on whether you are a gas or charcoal fan, how much you will use the grill and the different features you may want.  Take some time to go out and do your research on any grills you may be interested in, read the reviews, talk to neighbors, friends and family!  Once you choose your grill, go ahead and enjoy some good ole’ home BBQ!

If you’re not into having a grill or have no space, no problem, there are indoor grills you can choose from that are electric and small in size.  Or if that won’t cut it and you don’t want a grill at all or have no room for one, there’s always Pit Stop BBQ food truck to feed your cravings!  We may have a new location for our food truck so keep checking our Facebook page for info!
