1. If you're cooking up options, a Kamado grill is the way to go. Kamado grills date back 2,000 years and provide the perfect combo of versatility, functionality, and durability in your cooking experience. Use your Kamado grill as a charcoal grill, a gas grill, or a combination of both. You can even use your Kamado grill as a smoker or oven to cook pizza or bread.
2. The ceramic shell of a Kamado grill retains heat with precise temperature control, meaning no hot or cold spots on your grill. Take the worry out of grilling knowing food will cook evenly.
3. Kamado grills let you cook at a wide range of temperatures - you can keep it as low as 225 degrees or go as high as 750 degrees, depending on your needs.
4. Kamado grills let you reap the rewards of charcoal cooking with the ease of propane, gas, or electricity. You can enjoy the delicious flavor of charcoal or wood smoke in your food without the hassle of slaving over the coals.
5. Dinner is never just one step, so multitasking is a must. But it can be difficult to do if you have to waste time standing guard over your grill. Kamado grills provide enclosed cooking, so you don't have to worry about constantly keeping an eye on your grill or watching out for flare-ups.
6. Kamado grills are often as handsome as they are useful. The exterior of a Kamado grill can be beautifully decorated or glazed to spice up your outdoor space. As an added benefit, the surface stays cooler, making it safer around children than a metal grill.
7. If you take your backyard grilling seriously, a pellet grill is another option. Pellet grills run on wood pellets, small, .25-inch-diameter pieces of hardwood that look like long pills. Because of their small size, wood pellets burn cleanly and quickly to a fine ash.
8. Wood pellets burn at about 8,500 BTUs per pound and come in a wide variety of flavors, including hickory, oak, cherry, apple, and mesquite. Choose the flavor that suits your mood and enjoy the convenience of a gas grill with the added flavor of hardwood cooking.
9. Pellets are fed into the pellet grill from a storage hopper to a burning box at a controlled rate. This rate is adjustable based on whether you want a high temperature for grilling or a low temperature for smoking. Just turn on your pellet grill, wait 10-15 minutes, and you're fired up and ready to grill.
10. If you're considering a pellet grill, be sure you're prepared. Pellet grills run only on pellets, so make sure you know where to find fuel and how much it will cost before you invest in one.
""There's just something about the smell of charcoal grills that makes an old fashioned guy like me go nuts. Looking to replace my older grill was a chore. Local shops didn't have the quality I expected. My daughter suggested I shop online, and I have to say your site was very useful. I was nervous at first, but talking to a real voice at customer service helped me relax. Delivery was prompt, and we grilled out that very evening to christen our newest toy. Thank you so much.""
