Fuel Types


There are four variations of barbeque grills, based on their fuel types: electric, charcoal, liquid propane and natural gas grills.Electric barbeque grills are among the most efficient and easy-to-use grills. Plugin and you're hassled no more. These grills can be portable or built into the countertop of your outdoor kitchen island. They feature quick preheating and even heat distribution. Charcoal grills are specialized for the traditionally grilled meat lovers. Charcoal barbecue grills provide an even grilling with a smokey taste kept inside a piece of meat. Also great for grilling vegetables, these grills are usually freestanding or portable but can also be built into your outdoor kitchen island.

Many people prefer propane as their gas of choice. Equipped with easier cleaning features, built-in thermometer, steady propane flow, and more, liquid propane grills provide great convenience. They can also be freestanding or built-in. Natural gas grills can be built into an island or freestanding to give you the versatility you need for your backyard design. Their use is much more economical and with features such as utensil hooks, side tables, rotisserie burners and electric ignition, these grills will provide a full outdoor cooking comfort.


Based on their installation options and appearance, there are four styles of barbeque grills:

Freestanding grills stand independently from any other outdoor kitchen items. Built-in grills are manufactured in the way they can be built into the outdoor kitchen cabinetry. Portable grills are separate units and they are made to be easy to move around. As for the pro-style-grills, they are made from very durable materals and they include much more features like smoker boxes, rotisserie burners, and additional grill grates. These grills will last much longer, they generate higher heat and disitribute it evenly and they can serve for both commercial and residential use.
