Gas grills are currently the most popular of all the types of grills available,
accounting for over 55 percent of the grills in use. Why? Well a number of reasons - ease of use, convenience,
more control over temperature, quick starting and heating, and less clean up required.
While gas grills do not automatically produce the smoke flavor that is more common with charcoal
grilling, many gas grills come with a smoker box in which wood chips or chunks can be placed to produce the smoke.
Check to see if the gas grill you have or order is so equipped. No smoker box on your grill? Tips and techniques in
the Articles section can help you.
Another thing to remember is that the more burners the gas grill has the more control you have
over placement of the food for direct or indirect grilling and warming.
Propane Gas Grills
Barbecue grills using a propane tank are undoubtably the most common gas grill in use.
When you order or buy a propane grill always check to see if a tank comes with the grill -most do not. Remember to
check the tank before starting to grill - running out of gas halfway through preparing the meal is not a happy
moment! Tanks are available that have built in fuel gauges. You can exchange your empty tank for a full one at a
number of places such as Lowe's, and some newer gasoline stations are now set up to refill empty tanks.
