The weather is warming up and you are finally planning on grilling outside! The only problem is…your grill is outdated, rusted, and does not fit your current needs. Don’t worry, Ski Barn has you covered! We are proud to carry Weber grills and have put together a grill buying guide to help you select the right grill for your needs.
Purchasing a new grill is a big investment that becomes a little easier with some background knowledge of your options. If you have been out of the grill-buying market for a few years or are purchasing your first grill, there is a lot of information to be learned. Nowadays, there are numerous features that come with every grill, however, some grills are not as high of quality as others.
Research. Before heading to pick up your grill from a store, you will need to determine what type of grill you want. The first thing you need to decide is if your grill will be gas or charcoal. Each offers a different cooking and flavor experience. Charcoal grills are slower and provide a smoky taste. While gas grills are quicker and easier to use.
Determine a price range. Grills are quite the investment, if you choose the right grill, they can last for a while. Things you should consider with price range are the features that are important to you and overall performance of the grill.
Evaluate key features of every grill. Now that you are equipped with some basic knowledge and have a price range that you feel comfortable with, you will need to evaluate key features of the grills you are looking into.
- Cooking System. The purpose of a grill is to cook your food properly. A charcoal grill will have a sturdy, plated steel cooking grate and a charcoal grate. A lid with air vents should also be included. Gas grills should have three or more separate burners, as it allows greater heat control. All grills should have a grease or ash collection system.
- Construction. The best way to determine if a grill is constructed well is by shaking it. A quality grill will feel solid and sturdy. A poorly made grill will easily shake and sound loose.
- Assembly. After selecting a grill, the last thing you want to do is spend hours assembling it. High-quality brands will reduce or even eliminate the amount of assembly required.
- Service and Warranties. When you purchase a grill, you want to make sure that it comes with easy-to-read information and a toll-free service line for any questions you have about the grill.
