If your old grill is showing its age, or is no longer safe to use, now is the time to start looking for a new grill. And if you haven’t tried grilling on a propane grill, this is a great opportunity to upgrade.

Propane grilling is fast, convenient, and easy. It’s perfect for quick weeknight suppers because there’s no work involved in getting the grill started, no long wait for the grill to be ready, and no messy clean-up afterwards, all of which come with charcoal grills.

At Parker Gas, we sell and install top-quality propane grills in a wide range of sizes with a wide range of features from leading makers like Wilmington Grill and Bayou Classic. Our experts are glad to help you find the right one for your grilling needs.

We’ve put together some tips so you’ll find the grill that works for you, your family, and your budget.

Know what you can spend

While you may want the biggest grill and all the bells and whistles, your bank account may be saying, “Hold your horses!”

Fortunately, propane grills come in all price ranges so you can find a grill that fits what you can spend.

Know what kind of cooking space you need

Size matters. Are you grilling for two to four people, or do you regularly have the extended family over and end up making burgers and hot dogs for 15, 20 people or more? That will dictate the size of the grill. Pro tip: Figure on grill space of 10 inches by 10 inches for each person.

Know about propane grill features

With today’s propane grills, you can get so much more than just the grill. You can elevate your grilling game with all kinds of features, like side burners, rotisseries, multiple levels of cooking surfaces, smoker boxes, and more! But these features can add to the price of the grill, so only get what you know you’ll use regularly.
