Charcoal vs. Gas: What’s the Best Fuel for a Grill?

You know a new grill is in the stars for you, but if you’re like many, you may find yourself having trouble deciding between gas and charcoal. Both have some pretty great advantages, so it’s hard to go wrong either way – but you may find that one suits your specific needs and preferences better than the other.

Charcoal Grills: Charcoal set-ups are known for creating a flavor that’s hard to replicate with any other type of grill. They require a bit more time and prep work than their gas-fueled counterparts, but many feel that it’s the only way to get that one-of-a-kind taste that so many crave. Not to mention, loading up the charcoal, waiting for the coals to heat up, and arranging your food just right is a much-loved process for tons of our customers. Some savor the quiet time outside and feel charcoal offers an experience that’s hard to beat.

Gas Grills:Looking for something a little faster and less involved? Then, why not look into a gas-fueled unit? Gas grills are popular due to their ease of use and their ability to fire up quickly. Setting the temperature to your exact needs is no problem, and once that’s done you’re ready to grill! That means less time, less work, and more control — allowing you the chance to enjoy your evening to the fullest.

Does Grill Size Matter?

When shopping for a new grill, it’s important to factor in the grill size. The size of the grill you choose should suit the needs and specifications of your home, storage space, and overall feeding needs. Here are some questions to keep in mind:

  • How much space do I need? Take careful measurements of your outdoor space to determine how much room you have for the grill. Be sure to factor in safety clearances (you should try to keep a grill 10 feet away from your home), as well as how much space additional features, like side shelves or storage, may take up.
  • What type of fuel will I use? The type of fuel your grill uses can also impact size. Due to the space needed for holding charcoal and grates, charcoal grills often have smaller cooking surfaces compared to gas grills of the same size.
  • What are my cooking needs? Do you love to entertain and plan on grilling for a large number of people regularly? If so, you’ll need a grill with a larger cooking area that can fit and cook multiple foods at the same time. Smaller grills are a better option for individuals, couples, or small families.
  • What is my budget? Size can affect budget – you can expect larger grills with more cooking space and features to come with a higher price tag attached. Consider your budget and find a balance between size, features, and cost that makes sense for you.

How Long Should an Outdoor Grill Last?

It’s hard to pinpoint how long a grill may last. A grill is like most household appliances – it needs to be taken care of and repaired on occasion to get the most out of it. Fuel type can also have an impact on your grill’s lifespan.

Charcoal grills that have been constructed well can last 10 to 15 years, or even longer. Gas grills can also last a long time – usually 5 to 15 years. But again, your grill will last longer if you take care of it.

Factors that can affect the lifespan of a grill include?

  • Good maintenance. Be sure to regularly clean your grill after use. This includes cleaning the grates, emptying grease trays, and replacing parts when they break down.
  • The amount of usage. How often you use the grill definitely plays a part in its longevity. Grills used frequently and for long cooking sessions will wear down sooner than a grill that’s only used on occasion.
  • Exposure to the elements. Primo grills are made from ceramic which can protect them from rust. However, you should store your grill in a sheltered area or keep it covered when it isn’t in use, or when the grilling season is coming to an end.
  • It’s built well. High-quality grills built with attention to detail and strong materials will last longer and likely won’t need as many replacement parts over the years.

What’s the Best Way to Maintain My Grill?

Properly maintaining your grill is crucial to ensure it operates efficiently and safely, lasts as long as possible, and makes food that tastes good. For best maintenance practices, Mr. Smokestack has the following tips:

  • Clean it after every use.
  • Keep the grates oiled.
  • Break out the grill brush for a deep cleaning a few times a year.
  • Inspect it for rust, especially after it’s been uncovered for some time.
  • Cover it or pack it away in storage during the colder months.
  • For gas grills, regularly check the gas supply hose for leaks or damage.
  • Replace damaged or worn-down parts as needed.
