What Type of Grill?

The two most common grill types to choose from are Charcoal and Gas but don't forget about Electric and Indoor Electric grills.

What is the difference?

Charcoal Grill Pros:
*Pure charcoal flavor
*Generally less expensive than gas grills

Charcoal Grill Cons:
*Starting the fire may be a challenge
*Tends to be messier and requires more attention than gas grills

Gas Grill Pros:
*Don't require charcoal and are quick to start
*Feature accurate heat controls and tend to cook food more evenly

Gas Grill Cons:
*Typically more expensive than charcoal grills
*Foods get their flavor from smoke instead of charcoal

Electric Grill Pros:
*A great option for apartment and condo dwellers for whom charcoal or gas grills are prohibited.
*A thermostat controls the heat

Electric Grill Cons:
*Need an electrical outlet, so you don't have the mobility of other grills.
*Foods don't have live-fire flavor
