There are, as I believe to be the only two ways to grill; charcoal or gas. There are many alternative methods, like electric but for me, charcoal is the only way to get the same texture and flavor. I would always suggest charcoal grilling to people who are just starting out. Charcoal grilling is less expensive in the beginning in comparison to grills made of gas. The smallest gas barbecue costs around a hundred dollars while you can get a small charcoal grill for about thirty.
Before you can gain the required skills to become a master grill artist, you must know how to use grills which is the first process being lighting the charcoal. It’s a simple Outdoor Charcoal Grills 2022 process; you just need to place the charcoal in the center of the grill, then cover the charcoal with lighter fluid, approximately 3/4 of a cup. The quantity of charcoal briquettes you use is contingent on the grill’s size and the amount of food served and cooking time. A good guideline is about 35 briquettes for each pounds of meat.
Warning Use only other than lighter fluid that has been approved specifically for grilling. You should never use gasoline.
Let the water soak into the charcoal for approximately 5 minutes. Then light by placing a long tip lighter in various spots on the charcoal mound. Allow the charcoal to heat for about 20 minutes and then it’s evenly distributed in the grill’s base. Don’t spray lighter fluid onto hot coals. The stream of lighter fluid could ignite, then reverberate all the way back to your hands and causing serious burns.
While this method works quite well, I would strongly recommend making use of a chimney starter. Chimney starters are the fastest and most secure method to begin the grill. Plus, you do not need chemicals to light the cooking fire. This will also help avoid the chemical taste sometimes related to charcoal grilling. It is circular metal cylinder that is split into two compartments – there is one to house the flame starter (newspaper) and the other for charcoal. They are cheap, at approximately $20.
Put newspaper pieces that are crumbled in the bottom of starter, remove the rack from your grill, and set the starter on at the base of your charcoal pan. Fill the top part of the chimney starter using charcoal and illuminate the newspaper by using the holes on lower levels of your chimney. The fire is then drawn up the chimney starter, lighting the charcoal. Let the chimney starter set for approximately 30 minutes. Once the coals are cooked you can empty them into the bottom of your grill pan, and then lay them out in an equally-sized layer.
Notice:Charcoal is ready when the briquettes begin to turn greyish-ash.
There’s an array of grill types to pick from . Prices range from 30 dollars to thousands. If you’re not an expert, have a large family, or simply like some of the best appliances at the bottom of the cost spectrum will be sufficient.
Grilling is very easy when you have the right equipment and knowledge of how to use it.
