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.

keep your pets safe around charcoal grills with these handy tips leesburg vaEnjoying charcoal grills during the summer can be a fantastic way to cook up fresh food and spend time with friends and family outdoors, but safety precautions are always important to consider. If you have pets such as dogs or cats that enjoy going outside with you, it’s important that you make sure to get the grill pet-proofed for their own safety with the following tips.

Set Up a Blockade Around the Grill

The easiest way to combat your pets natural curiosity around the grill is to set up a blockade. This can be done in a number of ways, but the result should always be making it more difficult for your pets to reach the grill. Some good options include typing up your dog far away from the grill or using fencing around your patio area where the grill is being used.

Make Sure a Screen is Set Up

If you don’t want to use a blockade, but are still worried about your dog or cat becoming burned from flying embers, it’s important you use a screen. While you won’t be using the screen while actively cooking, it can come in handy when the grill is cooling down or in between uses.

Avoid Feeding Your Pet From the Grill

One of the most common reasons why pets get too close to the grill is because they’ve gotten used to being fed scraps from the grill. In order to keep the grill free of being touched by your pet, make sure not to feed them from the grill so they won’t associate it with treats.

The Case for Charcoal Grills

In the eternal debate of gas vs charcoal grilling, Joe Brown, the New York Editor of Wired, comes down decidedly on the side of using glowing hot coals. His rationale involves the unique aroma that he says that charcoal imparts to the meat. In other words, heat is just not enough. There is a chemical process that changes the nature of the meat and makes it better when charcoal is involved. It involves something called guaiacol.

Gualacol results when lignin, the resin that holds together strands of cellulose that form wood. This in turn imparts a bacon-like taste to the meat that is being grilled. The smoky, bacony aroma that is imparted by using charcoal grills enhances the taste of anything that is cooked on them.

This is the key to what Brown says is the superiority of charcoal over gas grilling. Food is cooked the same way no matter what the heat, whether it is gas, charcoal, or whatever. But taste is only one of our five senses. That is one reason why executive chefs put an emphasis on presentation so that a dish is visually appealing, which actually enhances the taste.

We east with more than just our senses of taste. We use our sense of smell as well, so that if a dish smells pleasing then it tastes better as well. If charcoal imparts a pleasing, smoky, bacony flavor, then it follows that a cut of meat cooked on a charcoal grill is better than the equivalent meat cooked on a gas grill.

“We found the store online, called and spoke with Tom, excellent knowledge on Weber's Outdoor Grills. We purchased The Summit by Weber, (luv it) they ordered and delivered unit, kept in touch with us by phone with updates, everyone we spoke with the day we visited store was friendly & helpful, they have been in business over 30 years. Also purchased weber accessories as well as individual covers for umbrellas. Tom is excellent at returning phone calls, we highly recommend this store - keep in mind the day we were there, they were very busy. We drove a little over 2 hours to visit the store, it was well worth the drive. We also purchased the Lava Heat 2G w/remote outside heater and love it. We have called customer service with Lava Heat Italia 3-4 times with questions and to order a cover. They have returned calls, they were very helpful and friendly and encouraged us to call whenever we needed anything or if we had any problems with the unit. We feel confident if we have any trouble or need assistance with the outdoor grill, Tom will be ready to solve our problem.”
