There are many barbeques in the world, and it can be hard to know which ones are the best buys. You want the best quality at the most reasonable price. In this article, I am going to share what the best barbeques are and what to look for to prevent any expensive mistakes.

4 Types:

There are 4 types of barbeques to choose from. It really depends on what you are looking for in a barbeque. There are electric grills, wood pellet grills, gas grills, and charcoal grills. When deciding which one is best for you, have an idea how often you will use it, what flavor you like, and the amount of time you’re willing to cook using it.

A gas barbeque is the most common type out of the 4. With the gas barbeque, you will have control over the temperature you cook with, and can be turned on/off with a button or nozzle. These barbeques are quick to use and very easy to clean. You will however need a fuel source. Most people use propane gas barbeques.

Charcoal barbeques require charcoal to be it to ignite the barbeque. This type of barbeque requires more work, but it offers a more barbecue-y taste than the others. If you are willing to get your hands messy for the better tasting food, this is the one.

Electric barbeques are the easiest to use. Just plug it in, turn it on and start grilling. You can use these indoors or outdoors but don’t cook like the other barbeques. Your food will be cooked, but it won’t taste the same.

Pallet barbeques are used from hardwood to cook. They use the scraps of wood to heat the food and is very delicious. They add the hardwood flavor to the food, but they are a rare type.

What to Consider when Buying a Grill:

When buying a barbeque, you don’t want to pay for more than you need. You want the best quality for what you can get, and you want it reliable. Getting a grill that gets the job done with good quality is all that’s needed under a budget. When buying the grill, look for solid materials that won’t break after a few uses. You want a solid barbeque and solid ones are often made from stainless steel. There are often ones made of aluminum but watch out because they rust and break quicker overtime.

Look for steel knobs instead of plastic ones for the best quality. Get something that will last you years. When looking at the grill, the best ones are made of porcelain-coated wire or porcelain-coated cast iron. These grills hold the heat and make nice dark BBQ lines in the food. They are of better quality than most and are the easiest to clean. They also distribute heat evenly throughout the food.


A few recommendations of good quality grills are the Genesis 2 E-335 Propane, 4 burner gas grill, Travel Q portable propane grill, and the Spirit 2 E-310 Propane. These are all solid choices.
