Four reasons to switch to a propane gas grill

Posted: March 18, 2019

gas grillingSpring officially arrives later this month in North Carolina, which means that soon it will be prime grilling season in our corner of the world.

The question is, what kind of grill is in the corner of your backyard?

If you’re planning to muddle through the spring and summer with your old, trusty-but-rusty hibachi or charcoal barbecue, here are four reasons to upgrade to a propane grill:

  • Convenience – Maybe the best thing about replacing your charcoal grill with a propane model – besides saying goodbye to black-stained hands and the awful smell of lighter fluid – is that you don’t have to labor to get it lit. To get cooking with propane, simply turn the knob and you’re ready to go in just a few minutes.
  • Precision heat control – Propane grills deliver consistent heat throughout the cooking area, which makes it much easier to cook food evenly to safe temperatures. Charcoal grills often suffer from hot and cold spots that make for some frustrating grilling.
  • Ease of cleanup – Not only does propane burn cleaner than charcoal, it’s also easier to clean up when you’re done. Simply clean off excess grease to cook safely the next time you fire up the grill – no more messy briquettes.
  • Better (and healthier) food – Starter fluid can leave a chemical taste food – not very appealing (or healthy). With propane, your burgers will taste like burgers – not like butane. The ability to control temperatures also makes it easier to reduce charring on your meats, which can produce cancer-causing Heterocyclic Amines (HCA) and Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH).

The bottom line: when it comes to outdoor cooking, nothing beats propane – and when it comes propane grills, no one in our North Carolina service area beats Rand Wade Oil.
