Are you grilling with propane gas or charcoal? When it comes to making great food and memories out on the grill, we believe propane gas is the right way to go for your Rocky Mount, NC home. From the amount of customizations you could do with any of our grills to the power you get from our propane gas, we think it’s the best choice for any avid griller.

Still need convincing? Here are 3 reasons why propane does it better.

1. Less Cooking Time

You don’t want to waste time waiting to cook. You should be able to get started as soon as possible. Gas grills light instantly, and take about 10 minutes to heat up, whereas charcoal grills require time to light the charcoal, and 15 to 20 minutes to reach cooking temperature. That will get you grilling faster, and great grilled food in your stomach that much sooner.

2. Easier Clean up

To clean a propane gas grill, all you need to do is clean the cooking grate by simply turning the grill to high until the smoke stops, then brushing the grates. That being said, cast iron grates do require more specialized care.

For charcoal it’s much messier. You’re actually using more materials to heat the grill, so of course you’ll have to clean up more. You have to clean out all of the ashes and extra charcoal often. Then you also have to brush the grates every time you use the grill.

3. Cook a Larger Variety of Foods

Grilling isn’t just for hot dogs and burgers. From pizzas to roasted veggies, steak to chicken, a propane grill can handle everything. Any of our stock will make it easy to grill delicate foods like chicken breast, fish, fruit, and vegetables, whose flavors can be overwhelmed by smoke. A smoke box (like a drawer for wood chips) can achieve some of the smokiness of a charcoal grill if you don’t want to miss out on that charcoal grill taste.
