When you know what to look for in a barbecue, it makes your purchase just that much easier. With our BBQ Bonanza in Kitchener this weekend, it’s the perfect time to look for a brand new BBQ.
Every part of the BBQ cooking system is designed and engineered for a specific purpose. When combined, the results are simply spectacular. Get to know the different parts to get the most out of your new purchase.
Thank you to Broil King BBQ for providing the info in this blog.
The Cookbox – Better Heat Retention Means Better Flavour
An efficiently designed cook box will maintain the heat and ensure consistent temperature control.
- A fully enclosed cook box with no gaps at the back or the bottom where heat can escape. A closed bottom cook box or one with controlled air flow creates versatility to cook with the lid UP OR DOWN. An open bottom cook box means all the hot air will escape each time the lid is opened making it difficult to maintain hot temperatures, heat the grids efficiently and limits your cooking style.
The Grids – Steakhouse Sear Marks
The sizzle as the meat hits the grill is one of the sweetest sounds. The heavier the grid, the better it will retain heat and deliver searing power to lock in juices and flavor.
- A heavy, solid cooking grid with tightly spaced rods. This type of grid will provide excellent searing performance, essentially creating a 100% Sear Zone.
- Heavy cast cooking grids with a “V” (or reversible with a trough) are best for vaporizing f
The Burners – Consistent Power and Performance
The burner system is the heart of the grill and is responsible for distributing the heat throughout the cook box.
- Broil King grills have Dual-Tube burners™ with a tube in tube design to even the flow of gas inside the burner and HEAT more EVENLY.
- Dual-Tube burners™ have holes (ports) on each side of the burner giving twice the flame coverage and heat distribution compared to regular tube burners that typically only have one set of ports on the top of the burner.
- Stainless steel construction for long lasting durability. A burner should have at least a 5 year warranty.
The more control you have over the temperature of your grill the better your food will taste.
- A gas grill that offers infinite heat settings, instead of just low, medium and high, allowing you to set your grill to the precise temperature for searing, roasting or slow cooking. For the most precise temperature control, look for control knobs that offer 180 degrees of control from Low to High.
