Selecting a Grill for your Patio

April 13, 2017

In the market for a new grill to use on your patio or deck? There are a lot of options available to you so be sure you take some time and figure out exactly what type of grill you’re looking for before heading out to find one. In fact, here are some of the most important things to consider when selecting a grill for your patio.

Selecting a Grill for your Maryland Patio

What Type of Fuel?

In today’s grilling market there are four main types of grill fuel options available: charcoal, gas, pellet, or electric. Depending on the type of fuel you prefer, and what type of grilling you’d like to do, this choice really matters. Gas and electric offer an easy and dependable grilling experience whereas charcoal and pellet grills offer a nostalgic and unique flavor you cannot receive with gas or electric.

The Size of the Grill

A lot of consumers aren’t aware of the wide range of grill sizes available on the market today. Instead of having to grill your dinner in waves while the first batch gets cold, you can install a grill large enough to grill the whole meal at once. That said, before deciding on the actual size of your grill be sure that you measure out the dimensions of where the grill will sit on your patio. If your plans include installing a whole new patio, be sure to share your required dimensions with your Maryland Patio contractor.

Include some Add-ons

Grills have come a long way over the years. In addition to installing a new grill for your outdoor space, also consider what add-ons will complement your grilling style. For example, you can add a side-burner to boil water, a warming drawer to keep grilled food warm, or a refrigerator to stash cheese or beverages while cooking. Additionally, your grill itself can come with unique features that customize your grill to your own personal preferences such as lighting, thermometers, or unique grill grates.
