One of the advantages of gas barbecue grills is that they heat up much faster than charcoal grills and smokers. This feature comes in handy if you are one of the many people who enjoy barbecuing, even when the weather is cool. Rather than waiting uncomfortably for the grill to reach the right temperature, you can start cooking your food almost immediately.
To light up a gas grill, all you need to do is to push the start up button or switch; a small hammer in the grill then hits an ignition crystal, producing a spark that ignites the gas. The burner then combines the gas with oxygen, heating the entire cooking surface.
Cleaning gas grills is also significantly less strenuous than cleaning smoker or charcoal grills. These grills need to be thoroughly cleaned after each use, and you must make sure to get rid of accumulated grease or burnt food particles each time you clean them. To clean up a gas grill, you only need to wipe it clean. Also, when using charcoal grills, you need to be careful about smoldering coals and wood chips that could cause fires – a problem that doesn’t exist with gas grills.
