Gas Grilling 101
Buying a grill is an investment that should be researched and well planned. There a few questions you should ask yourself before making a purchase. The first is: gas or charcoal? There is no right answer, but this site is dedicate to gas grilling, so we’ll move on from there. Here are a few things to consider:
- Price – Gas grills are as inexpensive as $20. They can also cost you thousands. Consider how much you will use your grill and how long you expect it to last. Gas barbeque grills are like most other commodities. You get what you pay for. If you want a gas grill that will last more than 2-3 years, prepare to spend at least $250-$500.
- Look and Feel – A sharp, stainless steel gas grill can actually improve the look and feel of your outdoor space. You may also decide to tuck your grill away in a corner if it doesn’t complement your backyard. Whatever your preference, gas grills are now available in all shapes and sizes.

- Features – The most basic of gas grills is essentially feature free; turn the gas on, strike a match and throw some raw food on the grate. We’ve already mentioned stainless steel, which will bring your grill price up to the $300 range. Spend more than that and you can expect an electric igniter, thermostat, storage cabinets, locking wheels, a side burner and much more depending on your model and brand.
