top 5 outdoor grills for the holidays

If you still haven't found the perfect gift for that special someone, don't panic. There is still time to order the gift that keeps on giving - an outdoor grill. Outdoor grills make perfect gifts for the members of your family who can't get enough of the outdoors and good food. Plus, as the giver of one of our top 5 outdoor grills, you get to enjoy home grilled goodness year round.

1. American Outdoor Grill 30 PCL

Perfect for the backyard, patio, or deck, this portable gas grill manufactured by American Outdoor Grill is part of their new "L" series. It features an electronic ignition system, warming rack, and 4-prong adjustable rotisserie meat holder. Constructed with high-quality stainless steel, this grill lasts for years of use. The user-friendly drip collector helps prevent spills and stains, and the grill even comes with halogen lights to make late night grilling easy and safe.

The polished bezel thermometer is attractive and accurate, and the valves are made of solid brass. This ensures accurate temperate readings and precise control to prolong the life of your grill.

2. Primo Oval LG 300 Ceramic Grill

The gourmet chef in your life could not ask for more than a Primo Ceramic grill this holiday season. Ceramic does not radiate heat like metal grills. Food grilled in a ceramic grill retains its natural juices, and the ceramic exterior stays cooler than hot metal, preventing injury.

Ceramic grills do more than just grill the best tasting steaks around - they also act as ovens and smokers, allowing you to grill, bake, roast, and smoke for all of your outdoor cooking needs.

This grill has enough space to grill 15-25 steaks on its multiple racks. 300 square inches of cooking space means there is plenty of room for all of your favorites from hot dogs to shishkabobs.

If your special someone craves a charcoal grill that provides a superior taste, then this Primo product is the grill of choice.

3. Big Green Egg

It is hard to know what to expect from a company with a name like Big Green Egg, but those familiar with grills know the name is synonymous with quality. 

These ceramic grills come in a variety of sizes. All have the same distinctive egg shape, perfected for quality and efficiency. Their XXLarge EGG easily handles family gatherings, catering events and cookouts with taste and style, boasting 672 square inches of cooking space. For an ultra-portable gift option, try the Mini Egg. With 79 square inches of cooking space, this little grill still cooks 2 pork chops or breasts at a time.

Let your loved ones decide if they prefer grilling, baking, or smoking on their new Big Green Egg grill - if nothing else, grilling accessories make excellent stocking stuffers.

4. Weber Original Kettle Series

Nothing says summer like a Weber Original Kettle grill. Available in 18, 22, and 26-inches, these charcoal fired grills are portable, light, and perfect for the backyard. The wheeled base makes moving the grill simple, and Weber grills last for years.

Lovers of the standard charcoal grill appreciate the simplicity of the Weber Original. The three sizes offer small and large families a portable charcoal grill perfect for their needs.

5. Weber Genesis Series

Weber makes both charcoal and gas grills. Serious grill aficionados prefer the Genesis series for their convenient size and superior construction. Each of the 4 grills in this series boasts 637 square inches of grilling space, and the grill comes with a solid welded frame on wheels for easy maneuvering. 

The Genesis E-310 and E-330 come equipped with porcelain-enameled Flavorizer bars, and both the Genesis S-310 and S-330 have stainless steel Flavorizer bars. All 4 grills offer 3 stainless steel burners, and the E-330 and S-330 come with a Sear Station burner.

The Benefits of Charcoal GrillsMemorial Day having passed means that it is officially summertime. This means that you will likely soon be preparing for neighborhood barbeques. However, this could also mean that if you do not have a barbeque, or if your barbeque is old, it is time for you to start researching barbeques for your home. In your research, you will likely (or likely have already) come across the debate over whether gas or charcoal barbeques are the better option. To help you in making an informed decision, here is a quick overview of some of the benefits of charcoal grills.

They Cook Hotter

Unlike gas grills, which generally have a maximum temperature of 500 degrees, charcoal grills are not limited by this temperature range. You can increase the temperature of a charcoal grill much higher depending on how much charcoal you add. This can be extremely beneficial in the cooking of larger cuts of meat, as the meat will cook more evenly throughout at higher temperatures.

Charcoal Grills Allow You to Cook with Wood

One of the biggest downsides of gas grills is that the only fuel source you can use in them is gas. In charcoal grills on the other hand, you can utilize other fuel sources besides charcoal such as wood. The ability to barbeque with wood is a great upside of using a charcoal grill, as cooking with different woods allows you to incorporate extra flavors into your meat that different types of wood infuse into food.  

Charcoal Grills Make Smoking Meat Possible

Another great method of barbequing is smoking; however, when one owns a gas grill, smoking is not really an option (or at least, it is not an easy option). Charcoal grills allow you to choose to smoke meats if you would like to with relative ease.

The main benefits that charcoal grills provide over gas grills is that they provide you with a more versatile range of ways in which you can cook meat. However, gas grills can also be a great option if you do not want to deal with the hassle of burning charcoal/wood to barbeque. Contact us for advice as to whether a charcoal or gas grill would be best for your home.
