Types of Master Forge Grills
There are several types or kinds of grills that you should be aware of:
- Charcoal Grills
- Gas Grills
- Electric Grills
Charcoal grills by the name itself uses charcoal briquettes or wood or both in combination. Charcoal grills provide a smoky and intense flavor to the food.
They are somewhat cost effective since you do not use power to operate them and they are considered as the most traditional grilling method. Things to consider though are the following:
- Cooking over charcoal takes time. After lighting, it will take you 15 to 30 minutes to get ready to cook, and this depends on the size of the grill and the number and type of briquettes.
- After cooking you will need to dispose of ashes
- Be careful in choosing the type of wood. Make sure to use pest-free and untreated wood for grilling
There are several advantages of using gas grills over charcoal grills. Among them are the following:
- Gas grills ignite quickly because of it uses an electronic lighter that is built-in into the grill. Either a push-button or rotary type. I prefer the push-button type. Within 10 minutes of pre-heating you are ready to start grilling
- Gas burns cleanly and is cheaper to use than charcoal
- Gas grills has burners that makes your grilling flexible. You can grill one food item while preparing another food item
- If you decide to use natural gas with your gas grill – try hooking up directly to power your grill. No more propane tanks to replace and you won’t have to worry about running out of fuel during grilling
Electric grills are the most convenient of grills to use due to the fact that you don’t need additional items. No more charcoal briquettes or wood to buy, no more chance of running out of gas in the middle of cooking. The only requirement is that your grill must be near an electrical outlet.
This is especially great for people who live in apartment buildings or other areas that won’t allow charcoal or gas grills.
