Charcoal Vs Gas
The Charcoal Vs Gas grills debate is hotting up, but which one is better?
We have provided a quick and handy comparison chart to help you decide!
Similar price but higher running costs
Great for smoking food
Higher temperatures than cheaper gas grills, good for searing meats
Difficult to control the ideal temperature for cooking
Loses heat quickly – will need to regularly replenish coal
Slow to heat up – allow 1 hour
Messy when cleaning
Requires separate storage space of charcoal bags
Regular maintenance and replacements
Susceptible to increasing regulation due to dirtier smoke
Lower running costs – significant with a fuel injection/modern/efficient grill.
More versatile cooking experience – multiple burners means a range of dishes cooked at the same time. Great for cooking food fast
Easy to maintain the temperature
Cheaper gas grills can give off an undesirable, subtle gas odour
Fuel injection gas grills conversely give 100% combustion, a healthier food product, maximum caramelisation with locked-in moisture and the lowest fire risk due to cleaner ventilation shafts
Quickly change the temperature to adapt to your cooking
Virtually instant to heat up – allow 5 minutes for the griddle heat up!
Easy to clean
Refill propane bottle when required
