Buy A Grill

Buy A Grill
Date: 4/20/2023

A grill can be something you purchase on a whim because you just want to try grilling or a major purchase that you will use and enjoy for many years to come.

When you go to choose your grill, you will want to set your priorities.

1.  Grill price is the usually the first priority.  You want to get the highest quality grill at the lowest possible prices. 

2. Grill Size is usually the second priority.  While one grill might have more features, it is missing the ONE feature that is a top priority like the size.  If the grill will not fit your space, then it does not really matter what features it has it does not fit.  The same with buying shoes.  If your wear a size 10 in shoes, it does not matter how much you love the size 8 shoes they will never fit you.

3.  Grill Features is usually the third priority.  This is determined by:

A.  The type of food you plan to grill

B.  The amount of food you plan to grill

C.  The fuel type 

1.  Charcoal

2.  Propane

3.  Natural gas

D.  How often you plan to use the grill.

E.  Whether you are looking for a temporary grill that lasts a grilling season or you want  it to keep it for many years.  If you  plan to keep the grill for a long time, then it will matter what the grill is made of and whether you can get replacement parts.  The grills and grill grates can be made of stainless steel or ceramic or some other material.

Now that you have your grill, lets learn how to cook on a grill. 

Learning to cook on a grill can be a fun and delicious way to prepare meals. Here are some steps to help you get started:

Gather your tools: You will need some basic tools to cook on a grill, such as tongs, spatulas, and a meat thermometer.

Preheat the grill: Preheat the grill to the desired temperature before adding food. This will help ensure even cooking and prevent sticking.

Choose your food: Grilling is great for cooking meat, fish, vegetables, and even fruit. Choose the type of food you want to grill and prepare it accordingly.

Season your food: Add seasoning to your food before grilling to enhance the flavor. You can use a marinade, dry rub, or simply salt and pepper.

Place the food on the grill: Place your food on the grill, using tongs or a spatula to avoid burning yourself. Be sure to leave space between each piece of food to prevent overcrowding.

Monitor the food: Keep an eye on the food while it cooks, flipping it as needed to ensure even cooking. Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of meat to ensure it is cooked to a safe temperature.

Let it rest: After cooking, let your food rest for a few minutes to allow the juices to distribute evenly throughout the food.

Cleaning your grill:  You will want to clean up your grill before or after using it.  A good wire grill brush usually works best.  You can purchase grill cleaners or use a lemon cut in half or just water.  It helps if the grill is warm, but you must take more precautions when cleaning a warm grill to avoid injury.  For those who like a super clean grill, it is recommended you let it cool completely and remove the grates to clean them.

With practice, you will become more comfortable and confident in your grilling skills. There are many resources available, such as cookbooks, cooking classes, and online tutorials, that can help you learn new techniques and recipes.
