Why Propane Gas Grills Are Better Than Charcoal

Propane gas grill

We recently talked about the many ways that propane can make your summer better – a fact that’s particularly true when it comes to grilling.

While many of you may still be in the habit of lugging out the charcoal year after year, the fact is that nothing can up your grilling game more than swapping those briquettes for propane gas.

Here are four reasons why to upgrade to a propane grill this summer:

  1. It lights instantly – When you have a yard full of hungry guests, the last thing you want to be doing is struggling to light your BBQ grill – especially when the weather is iffy. With a propane grill, just light the burner and you’re ready to cook in minutes.
  2. It gives you precision control – Just like the propane cooktop in your kitchen, a propane barbecue grill offers instant, precision temperature control and evenly distributed heat that no charcoal grill can match. That means your meat and veggies will cook perfectly – and taste better as a result.
  3. When it’s off, it’s off – A propane grill is as easy to clean up and shut down as it is to light. Charcoal, on the other hand, can take hours to cool after the cooking is done – not to mention the time you need to spend cleaning out ash afterward.
  4. Refuels are easier – Lugging charcoal and lighter fluid gets old very quickly. With propane, you simply fill your propane cylinder a few times a summer – or install a permanent outdoor propane grill that connects to your household propane tank and let Murray-Heutz deliver your propane for you.

The bottom line: When it comes to grilling, propane gas is king – and when it comes to propane gas delivery in our Maine service area, so is Murray-Heutz Oil and Propane.
