Charcoal or Gas? #DigIn


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Home Depot.

I love grilling and I have owned a LOT of grills in my life. You name it, I have used it, from a tiny little hibachi (which I think was my favorite) to charcoal kettle grills, propane gas grills and even a natural gas grill.

What is it about grilling? I think food cooked over an open flame has more taste. I think the act of grilling becomes a social event where friends and family gather to eat, laugh and spend time together. Food cooked and eaten outside tastes better!


How do we decide what kind of grill to get? When I had the hibachi I lived in a third floor apartment in Chicago that had a teeny tiny back porch. It always amazed me how much food I could actually cook on that small surface and how many people I was able to feed in such a short time. Thinking about it definitely brings back some great memories.

When I purchased my first house I found that it came with a natural gas grill already hooked up. I only used it once because the grill itself was ancient and rusty. If I had one of the newer natural gas grills that Home Depot offers I might have used it much more!

Shortly after using the natural gas grill we decided that a large kettle type grill would be a better choice for us. As for kettle grills, I have had large grills and small grills. I like the small grill because it is more portable and I have taken my small grill camping countless times. I do also enjoy a large kettle grill because of the versatility. I enjoy grilling burgers and hot dogs as well as smoking a roast or some fish or even grilling a turkey!

I have been looking at Home Depot to check out all of the grilling options available to me. It's time to buy another grill!

So tell me, which do you prefer, charcoal or gas?
