You’re buying one appliance that could make a dinner or lunch with friends and family a lasting memory for the ages – or could be a disaster if not chosen right barbecue grill or not grilled properly. So besides choosing right type of barbecue grills, i will also mention about mistakes to avoid when using barbecue grills to help your gathering a wholesome awesome experience!
So first decide on which one to use, Gas or Charcoal?
Gas barbecue grill is easy to use, much easier to cook, but food tastes better when charcoal grilled meat. This is felt by many people who love to barbecue, grill. Charcoal emits more carbon monoxide, particulate matter and soot into the atmosphere. Also I would say Charcoal grills for weekend, gas grill for weekdays. If you are new or just occasionally grill out, we recommends going with gas.
You could also buy an electric grill, popular among apartment dwellers, and if you’re a purist, you could even go with a grill that burns wood. I have already reviewed lists of portable grills here ...http://toolvee.com/best-portable-propane-barbecue-grill/
