There are many factors to consider when picking out a barbeque. Though many people pick one up on sale when one strikes their fancy, there are many connoisseurs of fine barbequing who want the grill that will bring out the best in their marinated foods. Shopping at an appliance store like Hampton Appliance can give you the biggest selection of quality barbeques out there. You’ll also find knowledgeable sales people who can help you navigate your way through all the features and accessories available.
Size does matter when it comes to a grill. If you have a large family or entertain frequently, you’ll want a big enough grill to cook all your meat and side dishes at the same time so that you don’t spend the whole evening cooking food and not socializing. If you are single and like to cook a steak every once in a while, then you can find a two burner grill that will work just fine. One feature that’s convenient is the option to turn on each individual burner one at a time, that way you can localize the heat source and you won’t spend money running burners you aren’t using.
What you want your grill to do and what it can do might be two different things if you don’t plan ahead. There’s something to be said for modest buying practices, but if you think you may use a certain feature, even if it’s only a couple of times a year, then including it in the package is the way to go.
Some things you should not skimp or look over are the burner system. The burner should fill the bottom of the grill to eliminate hot and cold spots when cooking. It also provides an overall better grilling experience. Also, cast iron cooking grids are the way to go. They hold heat longer and will make those beautiful grill marks on meat.
While your grill won’t have a flavor, everything that comes off of it will. You want the best flavor possible and the best way to get that flavor is to have a vaporizer. Most grills come with one, they are the metal plate that sits above the burners. They not only protect the burners from falling juice, they heat up, vaporize the juice that lands on them, and send it right back into the meat for that just grilled flavor. You can find barbecues with all the bells and whistles at an appliance store, like Hampton Appliance, near you. While there, you’ll be able to compare brands and models, check out all the features, and measure the grill. You don’t want to buy a grill that’s larger than your deck or patio can handle.
