Nothing is better than spending a weekend with your family relaxing in your backyard and enjoy the smell of grilled steak, salmon, or hamburgers. If you agree with it and have not provided a grill for your weekend get-togethers yet, then you have lost a great pleasure.
We highly recommend you to get started and plan to buy a grill for your home. Since too many grills with different sizes are available in the market, it’s difficult to choose a proper one. But don’t worry. We are here to help you choose the best.
Regardless of the price which is an important factor, in turn, you should choose a grill with a suitable size for your need. Different parameters are effective to determine the size of a grill. Since each buyer has his own conditions and needs, some questions are made and explained separately to clarify your case. This can lead you to the best choice.
- A number of family members?
- How many guests do you often host each time?
- How often do you want to use your grill (whether a party or private)?
- How much space do you have in your backyard or kitchen?
Each grill has a cooking area usually measured in square inches. If you are a family with 4 or 5 members and planned to buy a grill for the first time and will not host lots of guests, nearly 400 to 500 square inches would be a suitable choice. For larger families and parties, you can choose a 500 to 700 square inches’ grill. On the other hand, if you live alone or with your partner and usually do not have a party, a simple portable grill with about 200 cooking area is suitable.
Just to have more sense of cooking: by using a grill with 400 square inches cooking area you can grill nearly 25 hamburgers at the same time.
Available space in your backyard or kitchen is another factor that is important to choose the overall size of a grill. Maybe you want a grill with side shelves to have more options like a cutting board, beverage holder, or ice bucket. The number of burners is also a significant feature in gas grills which should be realized. Two burners will be enough for the usual grilling of a standard family. By increasing the number of burners, as you have more area and also more heat zones for your cooking, the grill size would be larger. More number of burners would be suggested if you use the grill frequently.
More heat zones can help you to have better control of cooking and so if you want to grill different foodstuffs at the same time you should consider more burners than standard.
It should be noted that depending on whether the grill is a charcoal, gas, pellet or electric type, its shape, and overall dimensions will be different. So it’s recommended that first of all choose fuel type of the grill.
In conclusion, in order to buy a suitable grill for your home, you should answer these important questions which have been posed above and determine some key features. Then you can buy a grill much easier.
