The charcoal grill

This is the most common type of grill. It's the sliced bread of the grilling world! The old school, always affective method of grilling' them jaw dropping dishes. It's quick and is always sure to bring fun and laughter to whatever it is your hosting. A few negatives about charcoal is that the actual coal takes a little while to get to the right temperature, it can sometimes get messy and if you're not a fan of the charcoal taste then a gas grill may be more up your alley.

The gas grill

Another wonderful effective method of preparation! The best part about gas grilling is its simplicity. Instead of fiddling around with charcoal just turn a knob, preheat and throw on the food.

It's cheaper only because charcoal will run out before a propane tank will. With gas you get to keep your money and keep those friends coming back for more tasty treats.
