5 Advantages of Using a Propane Gas Grill

Propane is the most popular barbecuing fuel in the U.S.

Americans love to barbecue — and among Americans, North Carolinians are especially dedicated grillers. Certainly, there are plenty of options for fueling a backyard cookout, but the overwhelming majority of American grillers prefer propane.

Here are five benefits you can enjoy when you choose a propane gas grill.

Easy Fuel (and Grill) Mobility

Propane is stored and transported as a liquid under pressure. That enables you to keep a dedicated supply of it in your home propane tank. It also makes it possible to easily transport propane in a portable grill tank. A 20-pound propane cylinder is ideal for fueling a freestanding grill. These small tanks are easy to lift and move, and they enable you to shift your grill wherever you like.

At LG Jordan’s Apex showroom (314 North Hughes Street), we refill propane cylinders — Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. You’ll get more fuel from us than you’d receive at a grill tank exchange.

Quick, Exacting Heat Generation

With charcoal, you need to wait a long time for the coal to get hot enough for cooking. Propane grills heat up almost instantly. Just turn on the gas and light the burners. Plus, you can precisely calibrate your grill temperature with the turn of a knob.

No Off Tastes or Smells

Another issue with cooking with charcoal is the lighter fluid that can impart a chemical taste and smell to your food, marring the aromas and flavors of meat, vegetables, rubs, marinades and sauces. There’s also the issue of smoke and soot, which can further negatively impact the resulting food. Propane emits almost no smoke or particulates. You can count on your food, seasonings and sauces to be the main attraction.

Minimal Clean-Up

Finished cooking for the day? With a propane grill, all you have to do is turn off the burners, close the propane cylinder valve, and brush off the grates. There are no coals to douse or ashes to clean up, so you won’t have to worry about ruining an outfit when you host a cookout (unless you’ve slathered those ribs a bit too much).

Amazing Accessories

Today’s propane grills have an astonishing number of add-ons and accessories, including:

  • Motorized rotisseries
  • Side burners
  • Smoker boxes
  • Infrared lighting
  • Additional racks
  • Ceramic briquettes

With these and other accessories, you can master just about any specialized recipe or grilling technique.
