"What type of grill should I buy?" is most likely the number one question that I get asked quite often. Now, you might think that this post is too late right, the Summer is nearly over, no more grilling! Well first off, you should never stop grilling! One of the best things to do in the winter is to fire up the grill and huddle around it for warmth so now is a perfect time to get yourself a brand new grill!
If you need another reason to purchase a grill now here it is: SALES! Yes, many stores want to get those grills that weren't sold during the summer out of the store so that they can put in Winter products so now is the perfect time to get a steal with a brand new grill!
Here are are my 4 very simple tips and advice before you purchase a brand new grill:
4) Gas or Coals? I would first start your grill shopping by answering this very simple question! There are negatives and positives about both. The positives to the gas grill is that you don't have to worry about the hard time starting a fire, or even making sure that you have enough coals! Also, with a gas grill you are more likely going to get the full taste of the meat rather of the smokiness from the coals or as some would say that is a positive rather than a negative.
3) The Space for the Grill: This is a pretty obvious suggestion, (hey I didn't say that these were out of the ordinary) you don't want to purchase a grill that you don't have space for! Simple as that.
2) Simple is usually better: I know, I know, we all want the seven burners, with a rotisserie attachments, and the two side burners top of the line gas grill! BUT sometimes simple is better, remember it is not the grill that makes the food better it is knowing when the food is ready and it is also about the chef and the recipe! In my opinion you can buy the top of the line gas grill and your food could come out burnt and tasting horrible if you don't have the knowledge on how to use the grill, so why spend a lot of money? And just remember you can always purchase a rotisserie attachment after you get your grill!
1) Get a grill that fits like a glove: Make sure that you are comfortable with the grill that you want to purchase! You want to make sure that aren't afraid of turning the grill on, and also the amount of heat that you will cook with. You want to be able to feel comfortable and not overwhelmed.
