Exactly what advantages do they have for you to decide to buy for a gas barbecue? First of all is the speed of ignition. Just press a button and wait about 5 minutes to start. This helps make the task of cooking faster and with much more leeway when it comes to improvising.
For some, a barbecue is associated with making a big smoke. Smoke is not unpleasant for many people, but for those who do, gas barbecues are perfect. They do not generate it either on ignition or during cooking, which makes them much healthier.
The gas barbecue is characterized by its fast ignition and little smoke when preparing food.
Another notable advantage is that these barbecues allow better control of power. With other barbecues, such as charcoal, you should place the charcoal evenly on each side of the barbecue so that the heat is evenly distributed. With gas it is not necessary, because by pressing a few buttons you can turn on one area or another of the barbecue.
In addition, the intensity of the heat is fully adjustable, with wood or charcoal barbecues, the flames can grow until they touch the food, being able to burn the surface and leaving the interior too raw.
Gas barbecues typically have a longer lifespan than a charcoal barbecue. The greater durability of these barbecues means that, although the investment is greater for buying a barbecue with superior characteristics, in the long run the investment is more profitable and therefore, the gas barbecue is cheaper.
On the other hand there is the issue of security. Since they use gas, these barbecues are much safer than charcoal ones, reducing the chances that an ember could blow out due to the wind and cause a fire. With this type of barbecues you don't have to worry.
Space for some could be an issue, since gas barbecues tend to be large. However, today there are small and even portable gas barbecue models for those who want to go to the countryside or do not have so much space in the garden.
For the general one you will have to light the barbecue, with the oven lid closed, for about 20 minutes. This will burn the remains of fat and food, achieving a quick partial cleaning. Once the 20 minutes are up, turn off the barbecue and let it cool down. Next, disconnect the gas cylinder and the burners. With a brass brush proceed to clean the grill, and then with a sponge dampened with mild soap (containing neutral pH) and warm water. You will have to do the same with the deflectors. Do not use abrasive products, as this will damage the enamel of the barbecue.
And for the rest of the barbecue? One or two a year will suffice. For the burners you will have to remove them, removing the rear clip, and wash them with a steel brush. Make sure you are cleaning the burner holes, thus ensuring maximum cleaning. To clean the interior well, you can use a watering hose, inserting it through the hole. Once finished, let it dry.
The lid is the easiest area to clean as you only need a sponge, barbecue cleaner, and warm water. In the case of white spots, or corrosion, you can use cooking oil. Dip a cloth in this oil and apply it with circular movements.
The side trays will depend on the material. If it is made of wood, you can use teak oil, but if it is made of steel, better use a barbecue cleaner. Lastly, the ground. These types of barbecues can generate stains that are very difficult to clean. This is why it is best to install a barbecue pad or splash mats.
The great advantage of this type of barbecues is that it is much easier to locate them than other types. You can have it on a terrace or in the garden, without any problem, since they are much safer and there is not so much chance of fire.
Even if they don't smoke as much, ideally they shouldn't be near doors or windows. It is also not recommended that it be near the area where you are going to eat, as the smell of gas could be annoying for your guests.
Gas barbecues are great for grilling chicken and skewers.
Since size is a negative factor in this type of barbecue, you should find a place with a lot of space to install it. Generally, they are usually put on terraces, but if you have a large garden, you can also have it in that area without problems.
This barbecue also has some disadvantages. For example, there is its price. While it may be safer, charcoal barbecues are a cheaper investment. In addition, it is necessary to ensure that the cylinder does not run out of gas.
In addition, you cannot enjoy the fantastic experience that results from lighting a barbecue. On the other hand, you will not be able to take it anywhere. These barbecues are big and heavy, and you must add the extra weight of the bottle. Although there are smaller models, they are much more bulky than other types of barbecues.
The stainless steel gas barbecue has a high durability.
Even so, they have the great advantage that they are easier to locate in some area of your land, without having to worry that a fire could be caused by a small oversight.
