Best Gas Grill Dinner

Don’t buy the Weber Q320 Portable Outdoor Gas Grill until you’ve read my Best Gas Grill Reviews.

For many of us, the fine weather signals the beginning of outdoor cooking on our charcoal or gas grills and inviting friends over to share in those home cooked burgers, juicy steaks or even rotisserie roasted chickens. In fact with the advent of new features like infra-red cooking technology and the convenience that some of the best gas grills are now portable or tabletop grills, there really is no place that you can't enjoy perfectly cooked food straight from your grill.

Are My Best Gas Grill Reviews Really So Important?

With so many products on the market, each with their own set of features to entice the unsuspecting buyer, you really need to be informed before you choose to buy and have made a few important decisions. Always remember these two important principles, firstly, in this market you only get what you pay for and secondly added features cost money. Therefore, it is essential that you know your budget and that you also know what features you would like or more importantly, which features you are happy to do without!

So Why The Best Gas Grill?

It is now generally accepted that there is little difference in taste between food that has been cooked on a gas grill and that using charcoal. Some people love the challenge associated with starting and maintaining a charcoal fire and the smell of food grilled over the hot coals but a charcoal grill lacks the precision that the best gas grill offers and, of course, there's far less mess to clean up after wards.
It is true that the best gas grill will cost as much as 3 times that of a good quality charcoal grill but you must also bear in mind that it will typically last twice as long and that it will also be cheaper to run. Furthermore, because a gas grill is simple to light, heats up more quickly and is easier to regulate it can be used most of the year round. So, if your budget will allow, it is best to see your gas grill as an investment otherwise it is my advise to avoid the inferior quality of the low end gas grills and to opt for a good quality charcoal grill.

7 Buying Tips – Finding The Best Gas Grill for You

Here are my top 7 tips in order for you to take full advantage of the gas grill reviews and know that you are buying the best gas grill for you.

  • Cost - inexpensive is usually a sign of inferior quality; a good quality gas grill should last for 10 years.
  • Construction and Durability - stainless steel and cast aluminum are the most durable materials but care is also a major factor of how long it will last. Keep it clean and covered
  • Fuel – Natural Gas (requires a line) or Propane Gas (tank or cylinder) – this function is not interchangeable so make sure you get it right.
  • Basic Features – adequate number of independent burners; stainless steel cooking grate is best or with a porcelain-enamel finish; fully portable or on a wheeled stand
  • Size – Consider how many people you will cook for – 300 square inches is a typical family sized grill.
  • Heat - BTU is only an indication of the volume of gas a grill can burn. Also look for variable temperature
  • Additional Features – shelves, warming racks, rotisserie, locking wheels, side burners, smoker box, meat thermometer etc. – all very nice but at what price?

Coleman 9949-750 Road Trip Gas Grill LXE

Coleman Road Trip Gas Grill

Compared to the Coleman 9949-750 Gas Grill, which is a 36 inch collapsible propane grill, the Weber has a far larger grilling area (462 square inches on the Weber versus 285 square inches on the Coleman). Both of these gas grills have porcelain coated cast iron cooking grates which are fantastic for cleaning and last longer than the standard cast iron grate. While the Weber is a great little number the Coleman weighs in a fair deal lighter at 52 lbs against the Weber's 85 lbs and so would be ideal for tailgate parties, although the handy features on the Weber, such as the removable work tables and infinitely adjustable burner valve puts the Weber gas grill in a class of its own.
