Charcoal

Coal grills is usually at the cheap end of the price level, but the authentic barbecue flavor is hard to pass. Barbecue charcoal is a good fuel, especially if you buy a local and sustainable product. Slide the charcoal around the grill to create heating zones for cooking and heating food.

Remember that charcoal can spread sparks, so beware of tents nearby. And don’t be tempted to use a grill as a fire or fill it with too much fuel. It is intended for cooking, not heating.

Benefits

  • Budget-friendly
  • Gives you the authentic smoked barbecue flavor.
  • The charcoal can be moved to regulate the heating zones.

Disadvantages

  • Charcoal can spread sparks, so beware of tents nearby.

Gas Grill

Gas

Gas is a more practical option as it provides instant heat and does not leave ashes to be disposed of afterwards. The lava stone and roasting plates are just two ways to use a gas grill when you want the meat juice to evaporate and ensure that the food gets the authentic smoked taste.

Do a safety check before you start cooking, much like using a gas burner. This includes checking the condition of the hose, and the connections.

Whatever you choose, always cook outside and make sure the barbecue is a safe and stable place away from many people, pets and playful children.

Benefits

  • No ash for disposal afterward

Tips

Use the lava stone to get extra barbecue flavor. The lava stone absorbs fat over time and becomes useless. Replace them after using about ten times.

Try long-fried meat on the grill — it’s delicious! To get optimum tender meat, place a pile of coal around an aluminum tray with a little water and place the meat on the grate above the tray. Close the lid and the moist indirect heat will slowly cook through the meat.

  • A long four-plate light lighter to make the ignition more secure.
  • A barbecue starter for quick ignition of coal.
  • A metal brush or curled aluminum foil for cleaning the grill.
