I went shopping this week to replace my old gas grill. For many years, I
used a gas grill from Sears (small grill, low-cost) that used briquets that
heated up and helped with the cooking.
Now, I can't find any grills that use briquets !! They seemed to have been
replaced by a "vaporizer" , instead of briquets.
How does a vaporizer take the place of the briquets, or is this just a
cheaper way for manufacturers to make a gas grill ?
Anyone have any comments or knowledge about this ?
I will appreciate any helpful comments.
Briquets were baloney to make people think a gas grill would work like a
charcoal broiler. The temperatures, radiation, and distribution are quite
different. Probably a health hazard to be putting all those particulates
of silica and alumina from "lava" rocks into your lungs, besides. Good
I've used both types and now have the Weber bar system. The bars
definitely reduce flare ups significantly, because the grease has no
place to lay on and accumulate. As for flavor, I'm not sure I notice
any difference between ceramic bricks and the bars. I'd have to try
them side by side. Real charcoal does add to the flavor, but that's
You can also get one of the cast iron boxes and wood chips to add to
any grill that will add flavor while cooking.
I'm sorry, but I don't see the point in using a gas grill. The only
difference between the gas grill and my gas range is the grill would sit
outside. The whole point of grilling is to get the flavor that you can
only get with charcoal.
What's next? Electric grills?
actually we have a metal grilling thing sits up on top of our gas stove. grills
steaks great. yes, Faberware has had an electric grill with rotisserie for 30 years
at least. Ingrid
