Difference Between Gas Grills, Charcoal Grills, & Liquid Propane Grills

A few of the top grill brands we will feature include the Weber grill and Traeger, but the best one for you will depend on what exactly you'll be using it for.

A natural gas grill is typically powered by the natural gas you have in your home, which means you won't have to go out and buy a propane tank to hook it up to. Many find natural gas grills cost-effective and convenient since you don't have the hassle of finding a grill store near you that carries propane tanks.

A charcoal grill uses lump charcoal or briquettes as a heating source to help cook your food and can come in a variety of styles including kettle grills, pellet grills, and chimney starters. While many consider charcoal grilling a more authentic method delivering a smokey flavor the downside is that if you arent a grilling pro yet then you are at risk of having a less even cook.

Lastly, liquid propane grills look similar to gas grills but are slightly different. LP or liquid propane grills require you to search for “grill stores near me” where you can pick up a liquid propane tank to attach to your grill. The benefit of liquid propane grills is that they are portable. However, moving the tanks can be a bit inconvenient.

Now that you know the type of grill you want to use here are the top 5 best grills you can buy in no particular order!

2. Traeger Ironwood 650 Pellet Grill

Dimensions: H48” X W46” X D27
Total Cooking Area: 650 square inches
Fuel Type: Electric outlet and wood pellets

Traeger transformed the grilling experience once they introduced they released wood pellet grills. While other pellet grill brands have released their own type of wood pellet grill there is nothing like the Traeger. The way the pellet grill works is you plug it into an outlet and add hardwood pellets to the hopper and then it’s moved to an auger which is where they ignite. The smokey wood flavor you taste in the poultry and vegetables comes from the hardwood pellets. If you are looking for an extra layer of smokey flavor you can turn on the Super Smoke Mode.

Most impressive with this pellet grill is the way it maintains its temperature and also combines advanced technology like WiFi and a built-in meat probe that gives you the ability to monitor the internal temperature of the food all from the convenience of your phone. At DeWaard & Bode, we truly love the Traeger Ironwood 650 Pellet Grill and it's difficult to match the wood flavoring whether you are looking to roast, bake, barbecue, or grill.
