For many people, using a portable grill or one mounted on a cart doesn’t seem economical over the long run. This is because they tend to grill a great deal and or host large gatherings and need the convenience afforded by having a larger cooking space.
In these situations, going with a built in grill offers these advantages and more. By tying into the residential gas supply, longer cooking times are possible, thus easier to cook for larger groups of people and longer periods of time with having to refuel. Built in grills are perfect for anyone who loves to do a lot of grilling.
It’s A Gas, Gas, Gas
Cooking with gas, either propane or natural gas, is a healthier alternative to using charcoal. While it is true that lump charcoal does not have the same chemical binders as briquettes, the fact is that any chemicals present such as different phenols and worse, can get onto your food.
Both propane and natural gas, burn completely thus there are no combustion by products to get on your food. In addition to this healthier aspect, they are perfect for use in built in grills.
This is primarily due to the fact that they are typically supplied, in the gas of natural gas, directly to the residence. Or in the case of propane, highly portable and able to be stored easier and longer than traditional charcoal.
Many gas grills can easily be converted to run one gas or the other. This allows you to have more options and fuel choices but it does depend on the model as some are more difficult to convert than others. Overall, having a built in grill save time and effort and makes the outdoor grilling experience into a more culinary experience for all.
