How to choose the right grill for you

There are various types of outdoor grills on the market and picking the right one depends on your needs. Grill types generally fall into three categories: gas grills, charcoal grills, and electric grills. 

Gas grills require fuel (propane or natural gas), but heat up quickly with the turn of a knob. They're easier to use in that they offer more precise temperature control than a charcoal-based grill. 

Charcoal grills, on other hand, require a fire starter (charcoal) and are for intermediate or expert grillers. They take longer to heat up, but they give that classic smoky flavor that we all associate with backyard barbecues. Temperature control is tricky, so again these grills are best for those with outdoor grilling experience. 

Finally, an electric grill is the easiest grill to use. All it takes to heat them up is a power outlet. They provide intense heat, but they generally lack that hardy flavor you'd get from a charcoal-based grill.
