Frequently asked questions about outdoor grills

(Back to Top)
There are many questions to be asked before buying a grill and I am finished with a step by step guide to help you with that but for now I just try to answer a few questions here that we found while doing our outdoor grill reviews but you can also read our how to buy a grill guide here.

What is the best gas grill to buy?

The question what is the best gas grill is one of the hardest to answer questions you can ask me. My first response it to say that you should by the best grill you can afford.

But than you also have to make sure it is the size that fits the number of people in you family. The average size is about 70 square inch per person if you also cook things like vegetables on it.
Since most of the time we only use it for meat yo can get away with less space and safe money in that way. You can read more in the section of our grill buying guide where we discuss how to choose a propane gas grill.

How many years does a gas grill last?

This is like asking how long a car will last. It all depends on the quality of the grill and how you take care of it. Cleaning and storing it after you have used it and keep it covered with a good quality grill cover is in my opinion the two most important steps to take for keeping your grill in shape for many years.

Are infrared grills any better?

This is very personal, but in our outdoor grill reviews we found that they are becoming very popular. I personally love my small Char Broil infrared grill.

Less flare ups and faster cooking are the plus point. Harder to clean is a con point in my experience. I love to grill burgers on it because of the lack of flare ups I always have on my charcoal grill. For flavor, and when I have more time available, I prefer my charcoal grill.

Should I use a grill cover?

My simple answer would be yes!. Maybe if you keep your grill in the garage every time you use it is not a necessity, but I still advise it.

Keeping your grill outside even on a covered patio or porch still exposes it to the weather. Using a good quality grill cover can make you grill last many years longer.

You can find all the grill covers we reviewed here: https://bettergrills.com/grill-cover-reviews/

What are the different type of grills?

I think we covered many type of grills in our outdoor grill reviews but if I find more they will be added to it. Basically there are grills that run on charcoal or gas.

There are Propane grills that are portable or have multiple burners. The same basic scenario for infrared grills.

Some grills are just to grill and others can also be used for smoking. There is in my opinion a grill available for any type of outdoor cooking you can think of. It is just a matter of finding what fits you budget and way of cooking.

Can grill grates go in the dishwasher

I my opinion you can use the dishwasher to clean most grill grates. The only exception are cast iron grill grates. Thew will rust fast. Better is to clean them and after that coat them with oil. I never use the dishwasher to clean my grill grates because I use a high quality grill brush and my porcelain coated grates are very easy to clean.

We hope our outdoor grill reviews helped you in your search for the best outdoor grill and BBQ for your type of situation.
