4 Differences Between Propane & Gas Grills , Hamilton, Ohio

The debate on whether a charcoal and propane grill is superior is as heated as that for automatic vs. manual transmissions, or Apple vs. PC. Each type of barbecue has its merits and drawbacks, but with summer just around the corner, it’s time to decide so you can get cooking. Read on to learn more about these two grill types so you can determine which is best for your summer cookouts. 

Features of Charcoal Vs. Propane Grills 

1. Eco-Consciousness

Propane is environmentally friendly compared to both electricity and charcoal. It requires less energy to operate and burns clean. Charcoal produces twice as much carbon monoxide as propane, while electric grills produce even more. Carbon emissions are greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change. By using products with low carbon emissions, you can reduce your carbon footprint.

2. Affordability

propaneGas grills are usually more expensive than those that operate with charcoal. However, charcoal is typically more expensive than propane. Although you’ll pay more up-front for a propane grill, you could save money in the long-term, particularly if you’re a frequent griller.

3. Convenience

Charcoal grills are typically more portable than propane because propane grills must be connected to a tank. However, you don’t need to tend the flame with a gas grill as you do with a charcoal one. There’s also less cleanup involved with a gas grill, as you don’t have spent coals or ashes to dispose of. 

4. Taste

When it comes to barbecuing, taste trumps all. So does propane or charcoal produce a better product? The answer is largely subjective. Charcoal produces a smokey flavor, while propane produces more moisture, giving meats and veggies more juiciness.
