Best Infrared Grills

BBQ enthusiasts are always looking for a new, improved way to grill their food. Charcoal and gas grills might do the trick but sometimes they just don’t get hot enough or the heat disperses too much inside the grill. So, what type of grill can you choose if these traditional options don’t satisfy your needs anymore? How about an infrared grill?

The greatest difference between an infrared grill and other types of grills is that, instead of pumping out heat from a gas burner or a lump of charcoal, infrared grills cook through radiation. This means that the heat is radiated directly from the grates and it goes right where it needs to go. Infrared grills can produce a consistent cooking area regardless of the surrounding temperature.

There’s just something so special about using a charcoal smoker. Sure, gas grills are a very convenient way to get your meal ready quickly. But, those grills just can’t infuse the same flavor as a charcoal smoker can.

Best Pellet Smoker

pellet grill reviews

Food, especially meat, tastes much better when smoked. If you want to take up smoking food but you’re worried that it might be too complicated there is one simple solution for you – get yourself a pellet smoker. Pellet smokers, also known as pellet grills, have started selling like crazy as people begin to realize they are incredibly easy to use. You may not get the street cred from traditional pit masters with your pellet grill and smoking skills, but you will be able to produce excellent barbecue effortlessly. Wood pellet grills give you smokey, juicy, and tender meat that’s perfectly cooked without the hassle of babysitting your smoker.

What is a pellet smoker?

As you could probably guess from the name of these smokers, they run by burning wooden pellets. Typically, a pellet smoker comes with a hopper on the side where the pellets are added. When you turn on the smoker, pellets will move from a hopper to a burn pot where they will be burned and the smoke will be diffused by a fan. A thermostat measures the temperature of the grill and determines how many pellets to burn while keeping a consistent temperature.

The greatest thing about pellet smokers is that you don’t have to do much to get perfectly smoked dishes. Simply set the digital controller to the desired temperature and the smoker will do the rest. These smokers are pretty much set-and-forget, which means that you’ll be able to spend more time with your guests and still serve them food that has wonderful smoked flavor. It’s this convenience that’s led to the recent rise in pellet grills and other electric smokers.

Another thing about pellet smokers which might impress you is that you can also use this type of smoker to grill your food. So, don’t be confused if you come across the term “pellet grill” in this article because it refers to a pellet smoker. When used as a grill, pellet smoker will start up quickly and cook your food with minimal supervision.
