The debate over whether charcoal is better than propane has gone on for decades. Sure, charcoal may have once been the favorite medium for grilling out, but propane grills have come a long way.
It’s really no surprise: Propane grills are easier to use, easier to clean, and are generally regarded as being the safer option. Plus, newer models come with extra powerful butane burners that can heat the surface area way faster than charcoal grills ever could. With new gadgets and features that help you measure the exact temperature and instantly adjust your grilling settings, gas grills are the way to go.
