I remember when this was a popular stupid meme.

Now it's just a stupid one


It's not a meme.

Boy did I ever misread the thread title?



Buy one of the cheaper ones...you can't go wrong.  Every time we buy expensive big ones, they get WAY too hot with virutally no temp control.



Money can't buy happiness. Just video games, which make me happy.

I was in a similar situation back in July and picked up a Weber Q220 propane grill. It's a small, portable ( I carried it in and out of the garage easily for a couple months before I got lazy and spend $50 on a cart), heats up quickly and since the shell is cast aluminum is very durable and light on the propane use. The main downsides are cost ($200ish for a Q100 and cart) and if you want to run a 20 gallon propane tank you have to buy a tank and need a $20 adapter cord.

I looked at a lot of cheaper propane grills first and found all of them to be poorly constructed with cheap grates, crappy burners or thin shells that would be easily ruined .

Strange when I saw the thread title I was thinking about this.

So... I clicked on this thread because for some reason I thought twesterm was saying he wanted to buy a girl.  So I was going to say he missed his chance, craigslist shut that crap down...

but then I read the op... now my sarcastic response is meaningless... I'm leaving the thread now...

I don't know much about individual grills, but I do know that from a taste perspective you're going to want charcoal


I promise you I can make food taste just fine without charcoal. 

Can't argue with Hank

Care to ask me about propane? Or propane accessories?

 

Ah, King of the Hill references in StarCraft

 

Charcoal > Gas but Idc.

 

My dad has a charcoal grill. It's like a meter wide. And has wheels.



i owned all types of grills

there hard to find here now b/c of the time, best time to get one is around august b/c most stores put them on sale end of summer

George Foremen is the best its small portable easy to clean and cook on and imo healthiest

the old fashion charcoal ones take some experience to cook on you got to constantly monitor it, also has issues with hydrocarbons and carcinogenic compounds but they can be reduced or eliminated with natural charcoal brands and avoiding fat from dripping on to the coals, but they make food taste the best

the propane ones also have the same health issues as the charcoal ones but most all now dont use any type of charcoal or even briquettes so its basically just heat warming up the cooking grid they are also hard and more time consuming to clean b/c of the numerous protective heat shields below your food

 

all in all i can see why you want to buy one other than the GF there this whole manly feeling when setting up your grill and using it compared to a gf or oven ect. but in reality your food wont taste marginally better on the other 2 types and that feeling quickly dies out when you relies the dangers and having to put more time and effort to clean them

You're in luck!  There are many fine varieties.

1. The non-stick coating on a George Forman Grill is much worse for you than charred meat when it starts to chip and peel off on your food. 

2. A George Forman Grill can char meat just as easily as a gas grill, what do you think those nice lines in your hot dogs, burger and chicken are?  The  important part is to coat the grill and meat in oil and make sure to not overcook meat to reduce the carcinogens.

3. If you can't make food taste significantly better with a real grill you do not know how to grill.
