So you want to buy a barbecue grill? When you go to the stores, you’ll actually find many types of grills. Charcoal barbecue grills are often the most popular grill chosen by consumers. Don’t like charcoal barbecue? I know that it can be pretty dirty and messy but in my experience, this is the best way to cook real, tasty barbecue food.
Now, with so many charcoal barbecue grills that you can purchase out there, what type are you going to choose? I will highlight a few of the most popular and proven ones in this article.
Three grills stands out here: Weber One-Touch Silver, Big Green Egg Griller and Char-Griller Outlaw. Let’s take a look at the three of them.
Weber One-Touch Silver
Weber One-Touch Silver comes in many dimensions. It can be no more than 18″ to 24″ in diameter size. It’s also available in metallic and black. It is probably the hottest and definitely one of the best so far in the market. The name Weber means top quality in the Barbecue Grill market (also well-known in the dictionary market :)). Made by the Weber-Stephen Products company, you can be sure that this is a wonderful product.
What I don’t really like is that the entire grill stands on only 3 legs. In fact, it’s two wheels and one stationary leg. I don’t think that is very stable and that it can be knocked over easily. What’s more, the cooking grates are made of steel. This means that it can rust easily, and to me it is a BIG turn-off.
Big Green Egg Griller
Next, the Big Green Egg Griller is a multipurpose grill having the capability to prepare a meal at high temperature and it can act as a smoker, too. The whole product looks like an egg! Take note that this grill is pretty expensive. Currently it is sold for at least $750!
The Char-Griller Outlaw Charcoal Grill/Smoker (pictured above) boasts a large surface area of a thousand square inches of barbecuing space, so you’ll be able to put plenty of food in for grilling. It also has a traditional type barrel grill which provides me with the versatility that I want. Highly durable, it can last for almost 10 years, even if you use this grill every month.
As it uses the traditional barrel grill, the temperature control for this grill can be hard. But this can be easily overcome if the grilling is done by an experienced BBQ guy. This product is very affordable: Only $160+. If you host a 50-100 people party, I’m sure that this would be an ideal grill for you.
The above information should help you make decision on buying the Charcoal Barbecue Grill that you like.
