Five reasons to ditch the briquettes and upgrade to a propane grill

Memorial Day kicks off the unofficial start of summer here in Southern Maine and New Hampshire, which means that it’s high time to get grilling! But rather than dragging out that old, chunky charcoal barbecue and spending half an hour trying to light it, why not upgrade to a propane grill?

Switch to an easy-to-use propane grill and you’ll get:

  • Instant ignition – Unlike a charcoal barbecue, a propane grill lights instantly and reaches cooking temperature quickly, with no mess to clean up.
  • Precision temperature control – With a propane grill, you can control cooking temperatures to within a few degrees – critical for cooking the perfect steak, chicken, burger, or veggie kabob.
  • Healthier food – Charcoal briquettes and lighter fluid are full of nasty chemicals that make their way into your food; with propane, all you taste is the flavor of your delicious meats, veggies and marinades.
  • Cleaner air – Propane burns cleaner than charcoal, which means you’ll release less carbon into the air when you use your grill. Drippings from your food are also more likely to flare-up on a charcoal grille, which releases smog-forming chemicals.
  • Better taste – Although using quality ingredients is the key to making a delicious meal on any grill, food tastes better when it’s cooked the right way – that is, in a controlled environment. That control is much easier with a propane grill than it is with a charcoal barbecue.
