There are a number of gas grills on the market today, and they range from plain and simple to grills with all the bells and whistles. There is no limit to the types of gas grill available, and many include storage areas, warming trays and smokers. A gas grill can be purchased online. Before choosing a gas grill, it is important to give some thought to the type of grill and how much it will be used, as well as available budget.
A grill is equipped with a refillable propane gas tank that detaches from the grill for filling purposes. The stand usually has a bottom shelf beneath the grill for tank storage. Some of the more costly grills will have an enclosure for the tank. Grills designed for constant use, usually are equipped with a double tank system that allows the owner to always have an extra full tank.
Material of the Grill and Stand
Gas grills are typically made from cast iron, stainless steel, sheet metal or cast aluminum. Stainless steel is the most expensive, but the most preferred. The grill itself has to retain heat for optimum cooking and efficient fuel use, but the stand should stay cool to the touch for safety reasons. The cover should be the same material and have handles made of wood and non heat conductive material.
The Grilling area
Grills come in a variety of sizes from small, accommodating burgers for 3 or 4 people, to the large economy size, accommodating burgers for a dozen or more people. Specifications will include the actual grilling area in square inches. The larger the grill and cooking area, the more gas the grill will use.

A grill often comes with a fold down side table or an extra burner to keep food warm while the rest is cooking. An enclosed grill frame will have storage space for cooking utensils or serving dishes. Other accessories, which can be added for an extra cost, are a rotisserie and a smoker box.
Some gas grills include a cover and some do not but it is a must if you leave your grill out in the element. To protect your grill from rust and other damage make sure to purchase an optional protective cover if it is not already included.
When buying a grill, think about the area available for the grill. If space is limited, measure up the area where the grill will be located and purchase a grill accordingly. Allow sufficient area around the grill to make sure it is out of the way of foot traffic, especially pets and children. If the area is at a premium, consider a table top gas grill. The grill can be put in place for cooking and when cool, put away in the garage or shed.
