Choosing The Right Grill For You

You’re ready to purchase your first grill but feel a little overwhelmed at all the choices offered by manufacturers – now what? Thanks to technological advances over the past decade, there are a lot of options when it comes to grills. The first place to start when making your selection is to know what you want out of a grill and what each type of grill offers.


Propane Grills


Propane grills are perfect people who want delicious food with less prep and time. All you have to do is turn the grill on, adjust the temperature and you are ready to grill! Even better – when your food is cooked, simply turn the grill off. There’s no waiting for coals to burn out. Propane grills offer larger grate space which means you can cook your meat and veggies at the same time.

Charcoal Grills

For people who want a traditional grilling experience with the most flavor, a charcoal grill is the answer.These grills are easy to use but do require a bit more preparation. Charcoal grills do not have temperature control knobs which means the griller will need to learn how to cook using direct and indirect heat.

Pellet Grills

Grillers who seek smoky flavor without the prep of charcoal and wood will do well with a pellet grill. These grills are electric and are fueled by wooden pellets. Simply fill the hopper, set the temperature and get ready for the smoke to infuse your food with flavor.

Are You Looking For Intense Flavor?

If you’re looking for a more classic approach that ensures strong flavors, then charcoal would be the way to go. Some claim that charcoal options are the best approach for getting the most from your meat and, if this is true for you, we have countless design options to choose from! We also have various accessories that will make clean-up and organization a breeze.

Keep in mind, though, that charcoal options do take a bit more time and maintenance to run. It takes a little while for the charcoal to be ready to grill, so you’ll have to plan ahead a bit. You’ll also need to keep a close eye on the coals at the end of it all, as these options can’t be simply turned off and on.

Are You Looking For Convenience?

So, you like the idea of the pure charcoal flavor, but you just don’t have the time to maintain a charcoal grill – we get it! For folks who are looking for a more convenient option, gas grills are ideal. They turn on in a jiffy, and you can easily adjust the temperature to your liking. You’ll have a meal cooked and ready to go in no time! When you’re done, shut everything down, and you’re free to enjoy your evening.

Just be careful! Gas grills can’t be parked too close to the home for safety concerns. Make sure you have plenty of space to spread out. Also, as we stated, gas grills can’t quite compete with the flavor offered by charcoal grills. Fortunately, Modern Gas provides various rubs and marinades, so you definitely won’t be missing out. Talk with our team today!

Are You Looking For Ease Of Use?

Possibly the easiest to use option would be an electric grill. These types are great for those who are working with a smaller or more confined space, like an apartment. It’s also perfect if your living complex has rules against using gas or charcoal options. Electric grills just need to be simply plugged into the wall, meaning you can use them about any place you’d like!

Unfortunately, they don’t produce as high temperatures as other types, so your food may take a little longer to cook and you won’t get that classic sear. Along with this, you’ll need to load up on sauces and rubs because electric grills aren’t known for enhancing flavor.
