Improve the taste of your food in any season with a charcoal grill

By | January 12, 2012

Now that winter is in full swing, it may not seem like the ideal grilling weather, but for some amateur chefs, nothing can match the smoky flavor of a charcoal grill. Whether you're cooking chicken, ribs, steaks or roasting vegetables, a charcoal grill is an inexpensive way of preparing your favorite foods. By searching for appliances from Gerhards, you can find a grill of the ideal size and color that will work for your purposes.

On the surface, it may seem like a gas grill is the more convenient option, but charcoal grills have their own unique benefits. Apart from improving the flavor of foods, you have a much wider range of temperatures to work with – by arranging the coals in a specific manner, you can use direct or indirect heat to achieve your desired results. Gas grills only have a dial to work with, so if you're looking to slow-cook a rack of ribs or provide a good sear on a steak, a charcoal grill might be the better option.

Weber has made a name for itself as the king of charcoal grills for decades, and the company's classic design has become a fixture of American pop culture. Weber's One-Touch Gold Charcoal Grill 22.5" is exactly what you'll need to prepare your favorite dishes at any time of the year. With 363 square inches of cooking surface, this grill will be able to accommodate your entrees and side dishes with ease. Additionally, it also boasts a porcelain-enamel bowl and lid and a rust-proof aluminum vent – this will help it stand up against the elements and improve its overall life span.

In the past, one of the greatest drawbacks of a charcoal grill was trying to clean it, but Weber has solved that problem with a stainless-steel, one-touch cleaning system. The grill features a high-capacity ash catcher that will collect all of the used coals and make them much easier to transport and dispose. In addition, the plated steel cooking surface can also be removed and cleaned quite easily.

It's never too early to start preparing for the arrival of grilling season, and you can certainly get plenty of use out of your new grill in the coming months. After you've tasted your first culinary creation on a charcoal grill, you may never go back to gas again!
