Most of us find ourselves needing to purchase a new grill every year. We want to bbq all summer long, and then when winter comes, we just put a cover on the grill and put it away till the next summer. When it is time to pull it out, you notice that the grill you bought last year is having problems, like the legs are unsteady, and the grill is rusted, and it has rust in it, and you think it is time to buy a new one.
In this article, we will talk about the things you ought to consider when getting your next grill that will provide you with a longer life and a lot of use out of it.
Stainless steel grills
The higher quality of material will last a lot longer like stainless steel. This type of metal will not rust, and it will not bend in high heat. The heat is what makes all grill grates rust and start to flake apart. If you buy a high-quality grill and take good care of it, it will last many years.
Cast iron grills
These type of grills will last a lifetime if cared for the right way.
When you get a cast iron grate, you have to get it really hot before you start using it, this will allow it to season it the proper way. Once you season your grate, the food won’t stick to it, and it will add flavor to your meal. Most of your grills come with a chrome coating that will in time start to flake off into your food.
Adjustable racks for charcoal grills
This is an excellent tool for your bbq. This allows you to lower the grill closer to the heat or bring it up to reduce the heat from the meal you are grilling. If it is a cheap rack, then you should replace it with a stainless steel rack.
Powder coated finish
You should apply a powder coat of heat resistant paint to the stainless steel. This will infuse after applying heat to it. It will give you the color you wanted for your grill plus it won’t ever peel or chip off in the future. It can also withstand any scratches to the grill. This is the reason behind the cheap grills, when heat is applied to the metal under the stainless steel, the coating comes off and starts to rust away.
You can get any replacement parts to fix your Performer charcoal grill. You just have to contact a reputable provider of the parts that you need.
