Are gas BBQs better than charcoal BBQs?
Some BBQ purists say there’s no rival that can match the taste of food cooked on a charcoal BBQ, but others disagree. A prevailing school of thought claims the flavour comes from the smoking juices, rather than the fuel itself, so whether you’re using gas or charcoal, the flavour shouldn’t be affected. Best of all, at OnBuy you can discover fantastic gas BBQs from well-known and popular manufacturers such as Tower, George Foreman and Charles Bentley.
The main difference between the two types of BBQ comes down to the way it heats the food. Gas BBQs burn with a more direct heat whereas charcoal BBQs radiate heat from the briquettes. Your choice will really depend if you think you’re the king of the grill or still learning to impress: if you want a BBQ that’s easier to control and doesn’t leave you waiting for things to warm up - gas BBQs are your friends! Charcoal BBQs take a lot more attention and preparation ahead of a fantastic outdoor feast. Stuck on ideas to improve your BBQ ahead of the summer? We’ve put together everything you need to know in this handy BBQ blog.
Are gas BBQs worth the extra cost?
When it comes to picking the right BBQ, it really depends on what your motivations are, but yes, they’re definitely worth the cost! While there’s still a debate over the taste differences (as you’ve just read), it’s undeniable that gas BBQs are easier to use, quicker to fire up, and certainly a lot easier to clean! There’s no messy charcoal leaving a bed of ash!
You can also rely on gas BBQs to be well-made, sturdy bits of kit, made from durable materials so you know you can rely on it for many summers to come! Charcoal BBQs tend to be cheaper and require some self-assembly. They’re only required to hold the charcoal and support the food so don’t need to be built to the same high standard.
Gas BBQs FAQs
What's the point of a gas BBQ?
The idea of a gas BBQ grill is to cook over an open flame, which will produce an entirely different taste to that of a frying pan or flat grill. You may use wood chips to get a smoky flavour if you like, and you can cook more food at once. The perfect addition to your al fresco arsenal, a gas BBQ has every summertime dinner party covered.
Are propane BBQs better than natural gas ones?
In terms of performance, they're fairly equal. However, each has pluses and minuses. Natural gas is cheaper to run, and you'll never run out. On the other hand, propane is not 'tethered' to a gas line, which makes these types of barbecues far more portable.
How often should I deep clean my gas barbecue?
Most people do a thorough clean of their grilling and smoking items at the start and at the end of the season. However, if you use yours regularly, it's a good idea to clean them more often to prevent grease from building up and sticking to the surface. Luckily for you, we have a whole host of BBQ cleaning supplies to make the job far less of a hassle!
Should you use water for smoking in a gas barbecue?
You can, but it's not needed for moisture - you should get enough of that from the fat in your meat! Some people like to soak their wood chips/chunks to create steam as well as smoke, but this isn't a necessity.
How long does a Gas BBQ take to heat up?
This will vary slightly depending on the model you’ve got and whether your BBQ has a hood, but generally a Gas BBQ will take around 5-10 minutes to heat up.
