6 things to look for in your next backyard grill

Here’s the scene: You just got home from work and are ready for a delicious meal cooked on your backyard grill. It’s a beautiful summer evening, the family is enjoying time outside, and everyone is having a great time. Everything is right in your world. But then, things turn sour. You struggle to get your grill to start properly, and when you finally do, it takes a long time to heat up. When it’s finally ready, the meat comes out dry and lacking flavor. Now it’s late, dinner is a bust, and you have a mess to clean up at your grill. 

If this scene is even a little familiar to you, it is time for a new grill! But this time let the experts help you find a grill that will perform like you want it to. At A-Quality Pools, we have been in the outdoor living industry for over 40 years. With our extensive knowledge and experience, we can aid in your search for the perfect grill.  Here are six things to look for in your next backyard grill.

The Best Fuel Type for You

There are four types of grills on the market for you to choose from: pellet, charcoal, electric, and gas grills. The type you choose affects the cooking time, flavor, ease of use, and more. Here are some of the pros and cons of each.

  • Charcoal Grills

Charcoal grills are perhaps the most common type of backyard grill, but as a result you are probably aware that they can be a challenge to get started, controlling the temperature is difficult (or impossible!), and they can pose a safety risk for children and pets, as it takes a while to cool down.

  • Electric Grills

A less traditional choice, electric grills cook without an open flame. While it may seem safer, the end result is just not the same. Most electric grills leave your food lacking in flavor, are poor quality, and have a small cooking space. 

  • Gas Grills

Gas grills are simple to start and easy to use. It does require a gas line hook up, or a propane tank in the least. On the downside, gas grills are known for uneven cooking and lack of flavor, not to mention the potential for dangerous gas leaks. 

  • Pellet Grills

One grill type stands head and shoulders above the rest: the pellet grill. Pellet grills are versatile, consistent, easy to clean up, ideal for any level griller, energy efficient, and create a delicious end product. This is why, at A-Quality Pools, we are proud to carry Green Mountain Pellet Grills and accessories, the industry-leading and fan-favorite pellet grill. Read here to learn more about the four types of grills, and why we recommend pellet grills at A-Quality Pools.
