Burners are very important elements of a barbecue grill. If you have a gas grill, you may have the luxury of having multiple burners that could be set at different temperatures. Grill burners are mostly carved out of aluminium, cast iron, or brass.

1.13 Types

The above points prove that barbecue grills have multiple variations and types. And each variation has its own pros and cons. This gives enough flexibility to consumers that they could choose a barbecue grill based on their exclusive grilling needs. Let's have a closer look at various types of BBQ grills.

  • Gas grills

Gas grills are one of the most commonly used types and are often carved in the shape of a cart. Gas grills normally run on propane or natural gas and are coupled with a conversion kit that connects the grill to the home gas.

Gas grills run on natural gases due to which they are considered highly environment friendly and also, they are very economical to use. Moreover, it is easier to control the heat distribution across the cooking surface of the grill with this type.

  • Charcoal grills

If you are looking for that traditional homely smokiness, then the charcoal grills may be your thing. Coming in multiple shapes and sizes, the charcoal grills could also be a bit messy. To get the much desired smoky flavour, you may have to take the time to reheat the grill and light the briquettes.

You will also have to clean the grill and get rid of the charcoal ash as that remains as a residue after the grilling is done. The charcoal grills in spite of being a little tricky to handle offer the classic BBQ taste.

  • Pellet grills

Pellet grills use wood and also have a more sophisticated electric setup to adjust and attain the desired temperature. Pellet grills are much preferred for grilling meat and add a wood-fired and smoky flavour to the grilled food.

Pellet grills feature hoppers on both sides to hold them and handle them conveniently. Once the grill is ignited and the temperature is set, the pallets shift into the burn pot through a rotating auger with the hopper.
