When you are grilling or planning to BBQ in your backyard, there are a number of considerations to be taken care of before you can go out and buy the meat and supplies to cook. Before you decide on the menu or the people you are inviting over, decide on what grill to use. If you have one, ok, but if you are planning to buy a new one, you must decide Which is better gas or charcoal grills.

Gas Grills

As the name suggests, these are grills that operate on gas. These grills are fuelled by propane or natural gas. These grills are used for both cooking the food directly and heating the various elements of a grill, which in turn radiates the heat to the food placed on it. This in turn will cook the meat and steaks placed on the grills.

Generally this model of a grill is placed on a wheeled unit. The gas tank is not easy to carry around and is not safe to be carried to and fro. Hence it is placed in this wheeled unit and the entire grill unit can be wheeled to wherever you desire.

This makes this unit easily portable and very convenient to store at homes. As one can put it in storage and wheel it out as and when required.

Charcoal Grills

In this model, the charcoal is burnt to generate heat, which is then transferred to the grills that cook the food placed on it. There are two types of charcoals that are used for these grills. It is either charcoal briquettes or a natural lump of charcoal. Many prefer the briquettes as they are all uniform in size and hence radiate the same amount of heat and make it easier to gauge the heat that will be generated to cook the food.

However, the natural lump of charcoal is what offers the aroma of burnt coal to the food, which is a signature of grills.
