Plus expert tips on how to choose the right grill for your style of outdoor cooking, and the must-have tools for grilling season.
The best grill isn’t just for professionals or people with sprawling backyards—anyone who’s looking to up their cookout game can find a standout grill that fits their budget and space parameters. And ufabet while any variety you pick up from the hardware store will absolutely do the job, the world of grills is wide and the options are seemingly endless; knowing the features that are right for you and your style of outdoor cooking will help you make the most informed decision. After all, the real best grill is the one you’ll use, over and over again.
“To me, grilling is the most primal, primitive, fundamental way of cooking,” says Edward Lee, award-winning chef, cookbook author, and grilling expert. “We’ve been grilling for thousands of years, and on a very rudimentary level, you can set up some bricks in your backyard with wood and skewer and you have a grill. Or you can go with the Ferrari version that comes with a thousand-dollar price tag—it’s a personal choice! The most important thing is to remember is that great food will be the result of your cooking, not your equipment.”
What kind of grill is right for you?
If you plan on grilling only once or twice a year, you might not want to go in on the most expensive, fanciest grill you can find (unless you do want that, which is allowed!). But if you’re on a first-name basis with your local propane or charcoal provider, springing for a higher-end model may be in your best interest.
Bigger grills, which are better for cooking for larger groups, tend to be more expensive, so you can get away with spending less if your dinner guests will top out at three or four.
