Choosing Charcoal Grills First

Our helpful sales staff insist that convenience is one key reason to choose a charcoal BBQ grill. Gas grills require a hose and propane tank, while electric grills need to be plugged in. Charcoal is the way to go if you're looking for a grill that you can take camping or to the beach.

A Clean Burn for Health

Charcoal made especially for top-of-the-line grills is quality material, sold because it burns cleaner for longer. Our selection of charcoal burns better.

Neat & Tidy Ashes

Charcoal burns nicely and evenly with minimal waste and byproducts. You can clean much less ash than cooking over a wood firepit.

Even Cooking Across the Grill

Even cooking is one thing all charcoal excels at, as you get steady temperatures across the grill. No more overcooked pieces.

Classic Appeal

Charcoal has that classic appeal that generations of pitmasters have chosen for its many benefits. Kick back and enjoy a vintage barbecue with friends and family.

Charcoal Grill Maintenance Is Easy

Charcoal grills provide an amazing taste with satisfying cleaning routines. You can clean your grill and grates after cooking, scraping off any food stuck with ease. The best models offer simple and satisfying features that let you empty ashes from the firebox after each use - so your grill stands the test of time.

Is it Unhealthy to Grill with Charcoal?

It can be, but it’s vital to choose the right charcoal. Briquettes made with bituminous coal or anthracite are safe since they do not release harmful chemicals when burned.

Why Do People Use Charcoal Grills?

Many barbecue pitmasters prefer charcoal for its key benefits, like tasty, smoky flavour in grilled food, long and even burn time, and that classic appeal only charcoal has.

Can I Use Wood in a Charcoal Grill?

A charcoal grill provides the benefit of versatility since you can burn anything in a charcoal grill’s firebox. But, it’s recommended that you burn only the approved charcoal that manufacturers design for these grills. Burning any old wood could contain harmful chemicals into your food when combusted.

What Burns Hotter: Charcoal or Wood?

Charcoal burns hotter and much longer than wood, but it also takes longer to get going. Still, there are many advantages to cooking with charcoal, and it’s well worth the wait!

Are Briquettes Better than Lump Charcoal?

Briquettes may be the way to go if you prefer a more consistent cook. Briquettes are made of compressed charcoal and tend to light easier and burn hotter and more evenly than lump charcoal. However, some prefer the taste of food cooked over lump charcoal, as it imparts a subtle smoky flavour.
