The most popular form of entertaining a gathering seems to be outdoor barbecue. Basically there are two types of grill for the choice of a barbecue chef. This includes gas barbecue grill and charcoal barbecue grill. The gas barbecue grill is quite expensive but it is convenient to use. Most of the gas grills are easy to assemble and also simple to operate and easy to clean.

The taste of the food prepared using the charcoal grills will be better than that prepared using gas grills. The reason is that the gas grill can not give the smoky flavor to the food which is produced by the charcoal grills. If you want to cook in a bulk the gas grill will be convenient.

The charcoal grills will be a better option for cooking less quantity of food and it is easy to transfer too. The charcoal grills are less expensive as well. There are some disadvantages for charcoal grills. In a rainy day it will be difficult to light the grills and also to keep it lit till the end of cooking. After igniting the grills one has to wait till the flames die out and the coals are hot.

The food may get burnt easily soon since it is difficult to control the heat. The charcoal has to get cooled down completely before cleaning the grills. This may take hours and one will have to wait till that. When charcoal grill is used grease, ash and charcoal will be formed. Removal of these ashes for cleaning the grill can be messy. After each use the coal has to be disposed.

Gas grills are easy to ignite. The heat of the grill can be controlled easily, so there is no need of worrying about burning of the food. The gas grills may have more than one burner which can be operated independently. This helps in simultaneous cooking of different food stuffs which require different cooking temperatures. Another main advantage is of cleaning with less toil.

The selection of gas grills can be done based on the size and shape of the grill. The main drawback of the gas grill is that the smoky flavor is not obtained in this. Comparatively the gas grill is costly. It requires more space also since it is bigger than the charcoal grills.

Points to be considered to make effective use of out door barbecue are:

1) Check whether there is adequate fuel.

2) Charcoal should be stored in a dry place.

3) The cooking time and fuel used will be more when outdoor barbecue will be in cold or gusty weather.

4) Place barbecue in a direction of the wind away from the crowd.

5) Spray some vegetable oil over the grill before lighting it.

6) Small pieces can be placed in skewers.

7) All the things needed for grilling should be assembled in a tray before starting. This includes the tools, utensils and raw ingredients.

8) If the outdoor barbecue is lit once, do not leave it unattended.
