Summer is almost upon us, and you know what that means: barbecue season! But what type of barbecue is best for you? Here are the top reasons why we recommend going with a natural gas barbecue.

Affordable Fuel Option

Natural gas is less expensive than propane or charcoal. While a natural gas barbecue is more costly up front, the savings on fuel costs will add up to make it a more affordable option in the long term.

Never Run Out of Fuel

There’s nothing worse than realizing you’re out of propane or charcoal when you’ve still got some steaks to cook. Barbecues hooked up to a natural gas line in your home will never run out of fuel, so you never have to worry about being caught off guard in the middle of cooking.

No Waiting Around

A gas barbecue ignites instantly and you do not have to wait around for it to heat up, whereas with charcoal you need to light it well before you intend to start cooking in order for the coals to heat up enough. Gas barbecues offer the convenience of being able to start your cooking immediately after firing up the grill.

Easy Cleanup

Charcoal can get messy, leaving black marks and ash on your utensils and patio. Gas-fueled barbecues are clean and do not leave behind any mess, so all you have to do is wipe down the grill and cleanup is over.

More Controlled Cooking

Gas barbecues allow you to easily control your cooking temperature and distribute heat evenly, giving you a more consistent cooking experience. This means you can cook your steak exactly the way you like it every time and can cook more complicated recipes that have very specific requirements.
