Now that warmer weather has arrived here in the Louisville area, it is time to start cooking outside. You may know that Olde Towne Chimney & Fireplace Sales designs and installs outdoor kitchens that feature built-in gas grills, but we also sell stand-alone and pedestal gas grills. Whether you are looking for a built-in or stand-alone gas grill, we carry some of the best brands of gas grills, including Napoleon, Twin Eagles, and Delta Heat. Our expert staff can tell you all about the different grills we offer and help you select the best gas grill for your home. If you have only used charcoal grills in the past, we would like to tell you the benefits of cooking on a gas grill as well as what you should be looking for when you purchase a gas grill.
What are the benefits of using a gas grill?
Although you may believe that charcoal grills are better, 68 percent of American grill owners actually prefer and use gas grills, according to Barbecue University. One of our favorite things about cooking with a gas grill is that you can always count on its heating consistency. Not only is the heat from a gas grill consistent, but it is also constant, which allows you to cook food faster. Cooking on a gas grill is a much quicker process overall because you can instantly start the grill up by pushing a button to light the grill. You will not have to wait for the grill to heat up as you do when you use a charcoal grill. If you are worried about the cost of propane tanks, you should know that a propane tank will burn for as long as 20 hours.
What should I look for when I am shopping for a gas grill?
You will want to be sure the grill has at least two heat zones so you can easily use indirect heating when cooking large pieces of meat, such as roasts and whole chickens and turkeys. Other features to be looking for include a built-in gas gauge and thermometer and a drip pan that is easy to empty and clean. You have several options with gas grills, such as a smoker box with a dedicated burner, a rotisserie attachment with a dedicated burner, and a side burner. Olde Towne Chimney & Fireplace Sales can help you find gas grills with these options and more. If you are looking for a stand-alone grill, you will want to ensure the grill is equipped with side tables to give you some work space. You can trust that all of the grills you will find in our showroom are constructed well and have good warranties.
