What to Look for In A Gas Grill

There are various types of gas grills with lots of different options available for sale. The best grill is not always the shiniest one. Not all grills that say stainless steel are of a good grade of stainless steel that will show rust stains after a short period of time.

Burner

A stainless steel burner may resist corrosion but will break down under high heat and will need to be replaced eventually. A cast iron burner is considered a better choice due to ability to handle high heat for a long period of time – a cast iron burner will easily last twenty years.

Indirect Heating

Look for a grill that has fewer burners to allow for an area of indirect heating. More burners is not necessarily preferred. A grill specifically designed for indirect cooking similar to your kitchen oven is a better selection. The grill will not be substitutable to grease fires and the food is cooked thru with minimum turning. The grease will fall onto a pan and sears returning the flavor to the meat on the grill. The indication that the grill is an indirect grill is the burners are covered by a drip pan. There are no grease flare up fires because the grease never contacts the open fire of the burners. When you have a flare up you get meat that is burned in one area and not cooked in other areas of the grill. The heat is lower in a indirect grill allowing for more even cooking.

The real secret to grilling is the efficient transfer of heat - not the amount sauces and spices. The most effective way to grill is to rely on the transfer of heat by way of convection - the movement of hot air around the grill housing vs the direct blazing rocket motor blast from the fire of a burner.

A few more tips on Grills

Bring a magnet with you when buy your Gas Grill - lower grade stainless steel are magnetic and will eventually rust.

Look for the thickest grates made of stainless steel or porcelain coated cast iron - to allow for long lasting use and effective searing or grill marks.

Always check gas grills for gas leaks at the connections by spraying a soap and water solution and look for bubbles. Replace leaky connection components.

If you grill expensive meat on gas grills that are worn out or of lower quality you risk damaging the meat and not get the best flavor.
