Some charcoal grills and gas grills will accommodate cooking a wide range of items at the same time. A grill's cooking platform or burner setup or the size of a grated cooking surface should be assessed when you visit a barbecue appliance sales department and view some appliances.
The Cooking Platforms And Burners
Charcoal grills that are designed for preparing several dishes at the same time may contain stacked cooking platforms. A charcoal grill's full-sized platform can be used when grilling a series of burgers, hot dogs, vegetables, and seafood dishes. A gas appliance may feature burners instead. The design of a cooking platform or burner may reflect upon how long it could potentially take to grill a meal.
For instance, a grill that contains a series of cooking platforms may provide both direct and indirect heat. The platform that is closest to the charcoal will provide a speedier cooking process than elevated platforms that are stacked on top of the main one will provide. For this reason, you may want to shop for a grill that will contain a considerable amount of cooking space on the main platform.
Side cooking platforms can be used to heat up vegetables, gravies, and other food items that won't take as long to cook. If you are considering the purchase of a gas model, you will want to research various burner types. Some barbecue appliances may feature infrared burners or sear burners. These burner types may be more powerful, allowing you to barbecue chef-quality steaks and other cuts of meat.
The Layout Of Food And Storage Space
Use the surface area supplied on each cooking platform or burner to guide you in determining how food will be arranged during a barbecue session. While you are in the appliance sales department, consult with a salesperson. A salesperson who is well-versed in the design of a particular barbecue appliance may provide you with a demonstration or relay information about the portion sizes that you will be able to cook during a single grilling session.
If you will be using your new grill on a frequent basis, you may prefer to store all of your cooking gear inside of it. A deluxe grill may contain storage that is located under the cooking surface. This type of grill will support the storage of pots, pans, tongs, and charcoal. Metal bars or hooks that run along the sides of a grill can be used to store utensils and other accessories.
