If you are wondering why the old-fashioned charcoal barbeque is still everyone’s favourite way to grill spite of the gas barbeque that cooks food much faster, here are points to consider.
Some people believe that while a charcoal barbeque does not offer the same level of convenience as gas grilling, it has one advantage that sets it apart: savoury smokey flavour. The airy, extreme heat of charcoal sears meat quickly, creating a caramelised exterior, that offers oodles of crispness and that familiar grilled-on-the-fire taste.
Everyone who grills knows that charcoal grilling requires more time and attention than gas grilling, starting with building and lighting the briquettes to waiting for the coals to heat to managing the open flames. Unfortunately, since you can’t turn down the heat of white-hot coals, it’s a good idea to leave empty spaces on the lower grill grate (the areas without coals). These cooler spaces allow for better temperature control, allowing you to sear food first over the hot spots before transferring it to cooler parts to finish cooking.
While charcoal barbeques can be less dear than their gas counterparts, the cost of charcoal briquettes and air pollution should be considered for the full picture. Both charcoal and gas barbeques are available in portable options.
Let’s be honest–charcoal grilling also involves making fire. Yes, despite all you elders’ warnings, making a fire and cooking on it is oddly satisfying. Of course, this can be positive or negative, depending on who’s controlling the flames. Gas burns cleaner and creates little fuss or mess while you set up to enjoy your BBQ on the go.
