A standard appliance for many families is a portable grill, to be used in all kinds of outings, such as vacations, picnics, sporting events, cookouts and community events. There are many types of grills, including charcoal grills, gas grills, electric grills and portable grills. Portable grills are light, convenient and easily transported. Most portable grills come with collapsible legs, wheels and fold-up features to create space-saving storage.
There are two main types of portable grills: charcoal and gas. The subject of the best grill between these two types is often under debate, but ultimately, the answer is subjective. Some believe that charcoal yields the best-tasting food. Others believe that food cooked on gas grills tastes the same as food cooked on charcoal grills.
The other choice to consider in a portable grill is the size. Larger portable grills will obviously be most suitable for large gatherings where a lot of people need to be fed. Larger portable grills are best used during sporting events or outdoor corporate outings where a greater amount of people need to be accommodated. Smaller portable grills are better for family outings and smaller gatherings, but they can also be used to augment larger grills, to use to cook a particular type of food or to keep food warm.
Those who are considering buying a portable grill should think about some of the logistics of owning one. Portable gas grills require a gas cylinder or canister, and the availability of gas refills also needs to be examined. If you prefer charcoal grills, remember that charcoal refuse often still simmers for quite a while after use, and must be carefully and properly disposed. Most public venues want everything removed after use, including the cooled-down briquettes and the ashes from used-up charcoal.
