Give the gift of grilling

SPONSORED

Grilling doesn’t have to come to a screeching halt just because summer is over. A grill makes a welcome gift for the grilling aficionado on your holiday list, and who hasn’t seen a grill going outdoors even while the flakes are flying? Plus, it’s a gift that can be enjoyed for years to come.

Several different types of grills are available.

Natural and propane gas grills are quick to ignite and require less cleanup. They allow for searing, smoking, plank, rotisserie and indirect grilling. Temperature control knobs provide even cooking. Many include built-in thermometers. Propane grills rely on a portable propane tank that fits next to or underneath your grill. A natural gas grill taps directly into your home's natural gas supply.

Electric grills offer a simple solution for people seeking a safer way to grill. Electric grills cut back on the amount of smoke caused by an open flame, making them ideal for people who have to adhere to specific building restrictions and can't purchase a bigger grill that runs on gas or charcoal. Electric grills come in aluminum or porcelain, outdoor, indoor or both, and are easy to store and clean.

Wood pellet grills use an auger that moves hardwood pellets from the hopper to the fire pot underneath the grill. Once in the fire pot, a hot rod ignites the pellets creating a fire, then a fan stokes the fire creating convection heat to evenly cook food.

Charcoal grills offer traditional grilling, searing meats and quickly cooking veggies and other foods at higher temperatures. Charcoal provides the fuel and high heat to impart that delicious, smoky flavor that this kind of grilling is known for. Portable, collapsible charcoal grills can go almost anywhere.

You can even find gas-charcoal combo grills that use quick-lighting gas ignition to provide the tradition and flavor of a charcoal grill, with the easy start-up of a gas grill.
