If you’ve made your choice that a gas BBQ is for you then the next decision you’ll be asked to make is whether you want natural gas or LPG to fuel your barbecue. It’s a simple choice and by the time you’ve read this page you’ll have a very clear idea about what is the best solution for you.
Natural gas is essentially that which is supplied by your local utility company. It’s the same stuff that’s used to fire your boiler or indoor cooker piped directly into your house. So for your BBQ it’s simply just a matter of directing a pipe to your outdoor kitchen and connecting it up. The negative is that once your barbecue is plumbed in, that’s it, you can’t move it.
LPG (Liquid Propane Gas)
Because liquid propane gas is supplied in a tank, the clear difference is that this means you can move your barbecue around the patio or garden to suit your needs. Refill tanks are generally available at your gas station and are connected to your barbecue via a regulator and a rubber pipe. Check more here.
A natural gas grill is an excellent choice for the entire BBQ experience and with 764-square inches of cooking area, there’s enough space to grill for your family, friends, and neighbors.
Things to look for when you shop
Size matters. The first decision is size, which relates to price. Start by looking at the number of square inches of primary cooking surface. That’s the main cooking grate. Some manufacturers list total cooking area and that includes the “warming” rack suspended above the primary cooking area. Yes, you can cook up there, but its distance from the flame means food cooks differently up there even though the temp is not a lot lower. A removable warming rack is a nice feature, but the important measurement is the square inches of the main cooking grate.
Price. What is your bottom line? Know what you are willing to spend before going shopping. Just as with a car, the more options, the more expensive. You can get a good charcoal for less than $300. The old reliable, very capable, versatile, and indestructible Weber Kettle can be had for under $100. High end charcoal grills can go for $2,000.
Head space. You will want enough room to smoke a turkey, so make sure there is at least 12″ of head space between the cooking grate and the inside of the lid. If there is a warming rack, it should be removable.
Fuel. Fuel. There are now six fuel types to choose from. You need to decide if you want charcoal, gas, logs, wood pellets, or electric. If you like to grill steaks and other red meats, you want to be able to get high heat for searing. You want charcoal or gas. I have a whole article about the strengths and weaknesses of each fuel.
