At Fischman Outdoor, we’re committed to ensuring homeowners get the backyard of their dreams. A lot of the time that means sitting down with people who already have a clear vision of what they want and helping them achieve their goals.

That said, we also speak with homeowners who aren’t quite sure what they want yet. In these situations, our goal is to provide you with the information you need to make informed decisions.

In the spirit of that, today we wanted to discuss everything you should know before shopping for custom grills in Palm Beach Gardens. Specifically, we’ll answer some of the questions you might have if you’re wondering whether to buy a custom grill.

Custom Grills in Palm Beach Gardens Can Help You Cook Delicious Food

What’s the Difference Between Barbecuing, Grilling, and Smoking? Though the terms are often used interchangeably, barbecuing, grilling, and smoking are actually different things:

  • Barbecuing means you’re cooking meat for several hours at no hotter than 300 degrees.

  • Grilling means you’re cooking meat in a matter of minutes instead of hours, often at a minimum of 300 degrees.

  • Smoking means you’re cooking meat for up to 24 hours at no higher than 175 degrees.

With a grill, you can barbecue, grill, and smoke food.

What Kinds of Grills Can You Use? There are many different kinds of grills you can choose from. The most popular are:

  • Electric

  • Gas

  • Charcoal

The biggest differences lie in how food tastes when it’s cooked on each of these grills, and how difficult they are to use. Electric is the most convenient, followed by gas and then charcoal. On the other hand, charcoal has the smokiest flavor, followed by gas and then electric.

While electric grills are good for people who are busy or new to grilling, budding chefs and people who are after rich flavor are going to want to look at gas and charcoal grills.

How Long Do Grills Typically Last?

On average, grills last for about three years. Of course, the lifespan of your grill will vary largely depending on how well you maintain it. Owners who clean their grills regularly can find it lasting for up to 15 years.

There are several signs to watch out for if you believe you might need to replace your grill soon. Specifically, ignition issues, rust, and uneven flames are all signs that it’s time for a new grill.

Can You Grill Year-Round?

Yes, it’s possible to grill in cold weather. In fact, there are some grilled dishes that are perfect for winter. Of course, we in Florida don’t even have to worry about it getting that cold!

The biggest thing preventing you from grilling is more likely to be rain, but you can solve that with a roof extension or retractable awning.
