Get Grilling This Summer: Buying the Right BBQ for Your Family

(NC) With summer around the corner, Canadians are eager to get outside and make the most of grilling season.

When purchasing a new barbecue, consider the following:

Size: If you’re always on the go, opt for a portable grill; it’s also a great option for small living spaces. Choose a large barbecue with all the bells and whistles for entertaining family and friends at home or the cottage.

Type: propane, natural gas or charcoal? Location is important when choosing the type of barbecue that’s best for you. Most models are available in either a propane or natural gas configuration. A natural gas barbecue requires a gas line hook-up and will cost a bit more, but you’ll save time and money refilling propane tanks. Charcoal grills are a great option for those who like that extra smoky flavour and they come in cool retro inspired styles and colours.

Special features: Think about your grilling needs. Some barbecues include a rotisserie or side burner perfect for chicken and fish, light up knobs that make night grilling brighter, or a thermometer to ensure the temperature is just right. The Tera Gear™ 75K BTU Stainless Steel Split Lid Gas Grill is the ultimate barbecue, including all of these features and dual lids that allow you to grill and sear at the same time.
