When you get your first charcoal grill it seems to be a sign you are reaching true adulthood. Many people prefer charcoal to other forms of grilling because the taste can be outstanding.
There are many different kinds of charcoal on the market that will have a hint of mesquite or maybe apple wood.
Getting a portable charcoal grill is sometimes a better option than a full-size grill. Portable grills are usually cheaper, use less charcoal and are easy to take on the go. They are also ideal for small patios.
Charcoal grills are also more ideal for traveling since you don’t have to take propane with you. They can reach higher temperatures than propane.
Choosing the right grill will depend on your needs as well as brand preferences. Some questions to ask yourself before buying:
How heavy can it be?
Will you be feeding a lot of people and need a larger cooking area?
What kind of storage space do you have for it?
Do you have a brand preference?
How much do you want to spend?
Will you be using it for camping, tailgating, home grilling or some other use?
