Propane Vs Charcoal Grills

thumb image

As temperatures rise, and the spring and summer months finally arrive here in the northeast, people flock outside to soak up the nice weather. Time spent inside is quickly traded for the outdoors. Backyards are suddenly filled with people and activities, which, oftentimes, involves grilling.

So what type of grills are out there and which ones are best for you and your family?

Charcoal Grills

Of course, one of the options when it comes to grilling is to use a charcoal grill. This requires either charcoal briquettes, which tend to burn longer and are more cost effective, or lump charcoal, which is easier to light and burns at a higher temperature. With either choice, the coal usually needs to burn for about 15 to 20 minutes before the grill is ready to be used for cooking. With charcoal grills you typically also need lighter fluid, a lighter and charcoal starter.

Propane Grills

Propane gas grills offer a lot more flexibility when compared to both charcoal grills and natural gas grills. Since propane grills can be fueled by refillable propane cylinders, they can actually be moved to different locations throughout your personal outdoor space and used at beaches and campgrounds. Alternatively, propane grills can be connected to a house’s primary propane tank and be used as part of a built-in outdoor kitchen.

When it comes to grilling itself, propane makes the cooking easy thanks to its temperature control and consistency. Starting a propane grill is easy enough for any chef. They also heat up quickly and make the post cooking cleaning a breeze. Since they don’t require electricity, a factor that adds up to significant cost savings, you never have to worry about not being able to cook during a power outage.

Why Choose Propane

Generally speaking, switching over to and using propane for home appliances is beneficial for many reasons, including:
