Choosing a new grill
Experts have argued that there are no significant differences in taste between charcoal and gas–insisting that smoky barbecue flavour comes from juices that drip down and create smoke. So depending on your lifestyle, choose your grill accordingly:
Traditionalists and insistent fire-pokers often prefer charcoal. It’s ideal for barbecue enthusiasts who love cooking in the great outdoors, experimenting with different charcoal and even wood. Kettle-style grills are the most popular.
Gas grills appeal to time-pressed cooks and entertaining aficionados. They provide instant convenience and often have a larger grilling surface as well as side burners. Higher end gas grills even come with rotisseries and built-in smokers.
