So what features of your new grill will help you make the best cook-out and impress friends and family?  It really comes down to practice and experience!  Your new grill is a tool. The burgers and steaks depend alot on the cook.  However, a good quality grill is a joy to use while a poor quality grill can lead to bad experiences that leave you less likely to cookout.

Come in to Lowes  or go online and choose from grills, smokers, accessories and replacement parts available through special order. Whether it’s a charcoal, gas, electric grill or a smoker you’re thinking about purchasing, get started here with a few comparison shopping tips and safety reminders.  Instead of purchasing strictly on price or recommendations, select your new grill to match your cooking style. Think about when and how often you grill.
  • Fire is an obvious hazard. Remember to always use caution when lighting a gas or charcoal grill and while cooking around any open flames.  Always use caution when lighting the grill and while cooking. Keep an eye out for children.
  • A gas grill can generate over 800°F of heat in the interior, so the outside gets very hot. Combine fire with petroleum products and the danger increases dramatically. When lighting charcoal grills, use only starter fluid specifically for charcoal or use pretreated briquettes.
  • Never use gas or kerosene; it’s unsafe and your food may taste like a carburetor. As an alternative, use an electric starter or a chimney starter, which uses paper.

A good grill should last for many years, not just a few seasons. That means they should be built from heavy-gauge and corrosion-resistant materials.  If a grill looks or feels like it is poorly-made then it probably is.   BBQ gives food a deliciously smoky taste that’s difficult to achieve with an oven, pan roasting or broiling.

Meat comes out of the grill juicy, tender, and full of flavor. A barbeque is also a great social activity, where friends and family gather together to celebrate holidays, special occasions, or just enjoy being together.
