Where to start buying a charcoal grill

Before you race to buy your grill, you should always spend some time researching the best charcoal grill for you.  There are plenty of things you need to consider when determining which grill you buy.

One of the first things to consider when purchasing your first charcoal grill is what you will be using it for.

Smaller charcoal grills are ideal for cookouts, camping, and tailgate parties, but would not be useful if you were cooking for a larger amount of people. Smaller grills that are easy to transport usually cost under 50 dollars, so you may want to consider purchasing a separate grill for smaller occasions.

Safety when grilling

Safety should also be a major concern when you are picking out your first charcoal grill. Since your grill will contain hot coals, the number one concern should be whether or not your grill is sturdy.

Look for a charcoal grill with a sturdy structure and sturdy legs. If you grill does now have sturdy legs, it’s chances of falling over is much greater. When a charcoal grill falls over, it sends hot coals flying.

Many charcoal grills also have built-in safety features such as a water reservoir and smothering valves. Undoubtedly, when you are cooking with fire, accidents can happen. In the case that your grill gets out of control or becomes to hot, these safety features will prevent potentially dangerous fires.

While no one likes to clean their grill, it is necessary to maintain your grill if you want it to last it’s intended lifetime.

One problem you will face is the fact that Charcoal grills stay hot for a long period of time. You can remedy this situation in two ways.

  • First, you can leave your grill open, allowing it to burn out.

This method typically burns a lot of the grease off, but can potentially cause problems if you are not near your barbeque grill. You do not want to start a fire.

  • The second way is to completely close off your grill and deny the fire oxygen.

As soon as the grill is cold, or cold enough not to burn you, you will want to clean the grill. Leaving the grill dirty for any amount of time will cause the buildup to become hard, and may make it harder to remove.

Use a wire brush to clean off the surface areas of your grill, and then spray cooking oil on the surface. Take the racks off and clean them with dishwashing soap. Dawn or other brands that have degreasers work best. Rinse the racks off, and replace them in the grill.
