Gas grills have been a staple in the grill market for years. The main reason for this is because of how easy to use they are. We’ve talked about pellet grills in multiple blogs, so today we wanted to cover gas grills and some of their pros and cons.

Pros:

Easy to use

We already mentioned this, but gas grills are as easy it gets when it comes to grilling. If you know how to use a stove, then you can use a gas grill. Just turn the dial and light it. You also don’t have to put the fire out, just turn off the burners and you’re done. Gas grills are perfect for throwing food on and letting it cook.

Quick to use

Gas grills don’t take long to heat up since the flame is instant. You should be good to go in only a few minutes, which allows you to get food on the table quickly. If you don’t love the process of grilling, but like the results, then a gas grill could be perfect since it won’t require a huge time investment. Gas grills a great all round grill for those who want to grill occasionally, but are wanting quick and easy.

 

Cons:

Fuel

Instead of charcoal or pellets, you’ll need to buy gas. Unless you add a gas line to your grill, then most likely you will have to use propane takes which adds some extra cost. Usually to refill the take costs about $20 and should last at least a few grilling sessions.

Taste

This is subjective, but gas doesn’t leave the same taste as a charcoal grill. Charcoal grills add flavor to whatever you are cooking and give it that great tasting char. You also can’t smoke with a gas grill very easily. There are some tricks you can do give the food a smoky flavor, but without extras, gas grills won’t give the food that extra flavor.

Durability

While gas grills aren’t inherently less durable than other types of grills, they do have parts that can need replacing. Especially the gas lines and the burners. If your grill isn’t take care of, then you may have to replace the burners or the gas line. They are also harder to clean since there are more parts. Charcoal grills are basically just a big pan that holds the fuel. Whereas gas has a more complex design.
