Why Should I Upgrade to a Propane Barbecue Grill?

May is National Barbecue Month – June, the first month of summer. That means it’s time to get grilling – especially if it’s on your propane barbecue grill.

Why switch from charcoal to propane for your Connecticut backyard or outdoor kitchen grill? Here are five key advantages of a propane barbecue grill.

  1. Greater convenience – Unlike a charcoal barbecue, which could take 30 minutes or more to light properly, a propane grill lights instantly, reaching the perfect cooking temperature quickly (see reason #2 below). With a propane grill, you’ll also say goodbye to lugging heavy briquette bags and ash cleanup – simply clean your grilling grates and you’re ready for the next round of outdoor cooking.
  2. Better control of your cooking environment – With a propane grill, you will be able to control cooking temperatures to within a few degrees – critical to making the perfect (and perfectly healthy) steak, burger, or chicken dish.
  3. No chemicals in your food – Toxins from charcoal briquettes and lighter fluid can easily make their way into your food; with propane, all you taste is the flavor of your delicious meats, veggies and marinades.
  4. Cleaner air – Because propane is cleaner-burning than charcoal, your grill will release less carbon into the air when it’s in use. Using propane will reduce flare-ups from your grill, too, which reduces smog-forming chemical emissions.
  5. Better taste – Food tastes better when it’s cooked the right way, and the key to that “rightness” is more control over conditions inside your grill. That control is much easier with a propane grill than it is with a charcoal barbecue (see #2 above).
