About Gas Grills
Nearly everyone enjoys some form of fire-cooked food whether they prefer the smoky taste from a classic charcoal option or the clean burn provided by a gas grill. Some aficionados enjoy their grill as much as the food it produces. From the compact, pod-like Weber portable gas grill to the wide-berthed commercial gas grill, America's favorite backyard pastime is growing. Over time, the outdoor gas grill has taken on many different shapes, sizes, and complexities. Some look like R2-D2, of "Star Wars" fame, while others look like a sea-turtle-sized carapace of iron protecting something very coveted. Though they look more intimidating as they evolve, they are actually a bit safer, more accommodating, and better at making food taste good than their ancestral gas grills that first arrived on patios and decks in 1960, when a Little Rock, Arkansas man was searching for new ways to market natural gas to residential customers of the ARKLA energy company. Gas grills now come with so many bells and gadgets that it behooves shoppers to know what they want before they buy. Built-in refrigerators, ovens, side burners, infrared burners, rotisserie burners, and sear burners—it becomes a decision more complex than leisurely barbecuing deserves. However, the reliable sellers at eBay have whatever iteration you feel best meets your culinary needs. Remember, if you get really good, upgrading is always an option.
