There are a lot of ways to optimize your summer cookout. Today’s grills come with infrared searing burners, smoker boxes, rotisseries, and even lighting so you can barbecue in the dark.
But we’d argue that the most important thing for a great cookout isn’t a special grill feature or accessory — it’s propane! Families across central and northern Michigan are using propane gas to achieve the best results while cooking steaks, hotdogs, fish, veggie burgers and just about anything else you can grill.
Here are a few of the benefits you experience when grilling with propane.
If you go with charcoal instead of propane, you’re in for a lot of labor. First, you need to lug over a bag of charcoal, fill the grill, then wait 30 minutes for everything to warm up. Once your food is cooked, you don’t get to relax. It’s time to clean up the ashy mess, which will definitely mess up your clothes.
Propane, on the other hand, lights quickly with the push of an ignitor button. You can ignite the whole grill or just a couple of burners and instantly control flame intensity. This ensures that everything cooks evenly and to the precise doneness. When you’re done grilling, just turn off the flame and quickly clean the grates!
That precise temperature control from your grill’s propane flame means that your food will heat all the way through without burning or charring. So, there’s no need to worry about overcooking that dry-aged porterhouse and drying out those chicken wings with too much heat.
And you won’t get any off tastes that come with sooty charcoal or astringent starter fluid. Just the perfect taste of your seasoned, basted, or au-naturel food!
One of propane’s best selling points is how easy and safe it is to transport. All you have to do is connect a portable propane cylinder, and you’re set for multiple grilling sessions.
