Summer; That time of the month when you fully get to enjoy the sun. You pull out your swim suit, beach umbrella, and treat yourself to a day in the sun. If you are not one to swim, you are either checking out hiking trails or some other form of summer fun including horse riding. This is also that time of the year when grills sing and the aroma of cooking meat is everywhere since most people are getting their grilling on. If you are looking to get the whole summer experience, then buying a new grill should be at the top of your to-do list.
One of the most trusted brands when it comes to barbeques is Weber. They manufacture grills to meet a variety of needs, including home installed and portable barbeques. When choosing which grill works best for you, there are several thongs you should consider. Top of that list should be what sort of grilling you intent to carry out. Here is a few of those factors to get you well on your way to the whole summer barbeque experience:
What Sort Of Grilling Are You Doing?
When Weber say they make grills for whatever occasion, they really are not messing about. The sort of grilling you are about to undertake should feature heavily on the type of Weber you should get. If you are going to be on the road a lot, or taking part in outdoor group activities, your best bet is a portable grill. This is where brands such as the Weber Q series, which is a line of gas operated portable barbeque grills. The Weber Q will give you some amazing features that can be found in larger grills, but will all the mobility. They come with side tables, built in thermometers, and porcelain ceramic grills. All this is encased in a cast aluminium body for durability and lightness. With any of these, you can feed anywhere from 2 to 10 people in a single grilling, anywhere you please.
If your summer will be full of parties, get-togethers, and family gatherings, then you are better off with one of the larger charcoal or gas grills. With any of the gas models, you can have the grill hooked up to your house supply of gas. This is possible with any of models in the Genesis, The Spirit, and the summit series.
Appreciation for a certain type of grilling will also play a part in deciding what sort of grill you are after. There are some people who do not consider it a barbeque unless the meat comes with a smoky flavour. This is where the Weber range of charcoal barbeques shine. The Weber summit series and the kettle range of barbeques excel at this. They even have a smoker series for the serious grillers who prefer their meat smoked through.
Do You Want A Grill For Your Home Or A Portable One?
This will be decided on based on your summer plans. If your plans include a lot of outdoor activities, then a portable grill is your best friend. You can choose between the gas and charcoal operated grills, to figure out what works best for you. Models in the Weber bbq Q range are favourites of beach goers thanks to their ability to churn out food for up to 10 people. They can be set up easily right next to the cat or under a beach umbrella, and even have side tables to place the food on. There are smaller models in the portable barbeque range such as the Weber Go-Anywhere, which is excellent for the Hibachi style of grilling.
Gas Or Coal?
What powers your grill is also considered. Gas grills can be hooked up to your home provider so you end up saving with the grilling. Models in the Weber premium gas range are known for their fuel economy while packing a bunch of useful features. The Weber Genesis II comes with features such as the iGrill thermometer and rotisserie, a tuck away warming rack, and the GS4 infinity ignition. It also comes with GS4 burners with their tapered designed to give even heat across the burner.
Charcoal grills, on the other hand, give the meat that smoky flavour, which is a big deal with some people. This is why most people go for the Weber Summit Charcoal series. This is a large home grill with an ash catcher that can take a lot before needing a cleaning. The body is made from aluminium with no rust vents and a porcelain enamelled bowl and lid. Its most stand out features are the Gourmet Barbeque System cooking grill made of stainless steel and has a hinge for manoeuvrability, and the One Touch cleaning system made of stainless steel. It also has a thermometer built into the lid, a briquette measuring cup, a lid damper from Rapidfire, and a stainless steel diffuser plate.
