What You Should Know About Gas, Charcoal & Hybrid Grilling
Are you trying to decide between a gas or charcoal grill? If so, you are not alone. Many grillers have trouble deciding which way to go. But what if there was a third option that could offer the best of both worlds?
Introducing hybrid grills! Hybrid grills allow you to burn any fuel, giving you unprecedented control over your cooking. Let's look at what you should know about gas, charcoal, and hybrid grilling and why this is an attractive option for serious grillers.
The Benefits of Charcoal
Charcoal briquettes provide an affordable, temperature-consistent fuel source for barbecuers of all levels. Made from burned wood, charcoal offers a unique smoky flavor to food that gas cannot replicate and burns at higher temperatures than many alternative fuels. The uniform size and shape of the briquettes ensure the same amount of heat can be generated in each batch and produces a neat bed of coals that can keep burning for hours.
In addition, the slow-burning nature of briquettes can save time over lump charcoal with more consistent refueling intervals. Whether gathering family or friends for a summer feast, charcoal will be the perfect companion for any special occasion.
- Mesquite, smoky taste
- High direct heat
- Great sear
The Benefits of Natural Gas
Natural gas grills provide multiple benefits to those who love to cook outdoors. For starters, they offer convenience - they heat up instantly and with a button and are much simpler to clean than charcoal grills.
Natural gas grills are also more versatile as users can precisely adjust the temperature for anything from smoking beef brisket at low heat to cooking up a quick burger on high heat. Not only does this make them great for all types of outdoor cooking, but it also enables users to get creative.
Finally, because natural gas is frequently less expensive than other energy sources and lighter than charcoal, it provides savings no matter how you look.
- Easy Cleanup
- Temperature control
- Environmentally friendly

The Benefits of Hybrid Grills
Hybrid grills allow you to cook with gas and charcoal simultaneously. This means you can use one fuel for fast searing and another for slow cooking. You can also switch between fuels during the same cooking session easily and quickly, allowing you to experiment with different techniques like direct and indirect heat. This freedom gives experienced cooks plenty of room to explore different grilling styles and expand their repertoire.
The Versatility of Hybrid Grills
In addition to being able to switch between fuels on the fly, hybrid grills also offer more cooking surface than either gas or charcoal alone can provide. This makes them well-suited for large family gatherings or entertaining events where more food is needed than either gas or charcoal can accommodate. And because they can be used with either fuel, they are flexible enough for any style of cooking that may come up unexpectedly—from slow-smoked pork shoulder to grilled pizza!
