Guide to Choosing the Right BBQ

With the vast number of BBQ grills on the market – from gas to portable to wood fire to charcoal. You will want to learn about your options before choosing the right one for your outdoor cooking needs. At Backyard Lifestyle, we are our source for some of the highest quality BBQ grills at great prices you can find, whether you are looking for a wood fire grill, gas grill, or charcoal grill.

Gas BBQs

Gas BBQs heat up quickly. You can be cooking in less than five minutes with a gas unit. These grills also have multiple burners that allow you to cook food at various temperatures. Without the buildup of ash associated with other grills, they are also easier to clean.

Wood Fire BBQs

Wood fire BBQs generate a smoke flavor in foods, such as meats, that greatly enhance their taste. Compared to charcoal, wood burns longer, which may be advantageous for cooking thicker cuts of meat or long smokes.

Charcoal BBQs

A charcoal BBQ gives food a smoky flavor, but they take longer to heat up. With a charcoal BBQ grill, you need to make sure the embers are fully hot. These grills require more maintenance, which includes the removal of the ashes after every use.

Pellet BBQs

These BBQ grills produce the flavor of a wood fire grill with the convenience and speed of gas. If you want an infusion of smoky flavor in your meats, then a pellet BBQ is the way to go. A pellet grill does all the work once you plug it in, fill the hopper with the type of pellets you want for the desired flavor, turn on the unit, and set the temperature for cooking.

Size of Grill

The number of people you intend to cook for at any time can dictate the size of the BBQ grill you purchase. A medium-sized charcoal BBQ or two-gas burner may be fine for around 6 people, for example. If you will be cooking for larger groups, then you may want to consider a three or four gas burner, a charcoal BBQ grill with a larger grilling space and a warming rack, or a large-sized wood fire BBQ. For camping trips or other small outdoor get-togethers, a portable BBQ grill may be ideal. A pellet grill can accommodate small or larger groups depending on the size chosen.
