The Advantages to Gas Grill
By James McDonald

There are some noted advantages to using a gas grill over other traditional grills which make them the most popular choice for the backyard griller. These grills are lit via propane or similar type of natural gas. Most homes have one on their deck or patio to allow easy cooking and entertaining of guests. Having a barbecue is a great way to welcome friends or family members into your home.

Firing a gas grill is as easy as turning a knob and hitting a button. The starter button will light the flame and start warming the cooking surface. The ease of doing this is the biggest advantage to these grills. With a charcoal grill you have to pile the charcoal, apply lighter fluid, and manually light them. You also need to monitor them to make sure the flame remains at an optimal temperature. Most gas grills have a thermometer gauge and a method to turn the amount of gas up or down. This allows you to correctly cook any type of food.

A second advantage to a natural gas grill is the ability to cook different meals at different temperatures at the same time. Most of these grills have different burners on each side with seperate controls. You can quickly turn one side up or down to compensate for varying temperature requirements.

Another barbeque gas grill advantages is the ease of cleaning up after you are done cooking the meal. They will cool down in a relatively short period of time, allowing you to quickly remove the grill section for a thorough cleaning. Charcoal grills take alot longer to cool as you must wait for the burnt charcoal biscuits to completely cool before removing them, and doing this is a messy proposition. You will typically have to wait several hours before the coals are cool enough to be removed.

One thing to remember with a gas grill is that propane is a flammable product. You should use care when moving the small cylinder and avoid dropping it or damaging it severely. You should also check the gas lines for leaks periodically to avoid the risk of a fire or explosion during the cooking session. Rest assured these grills are safe to use but you must use your common sense at all times. Follow the instructions carefully and do not use the propane tank if you suspect there are any problems with it.

Barbecue grilling is a fun activity as you get to enjoy the outdoors while cooking food for you and your guests. Gas grills have some advantages over other types which explains why they are the most popular grill for homeowners. They are easy to use and maintain, plus you get a terrific flavor in your food.
