The debate about whether the charcoal or gas grills are better doesn’t seem to end anytime soon. It can’t be argued that gas grills are easier and more convenient to use.
The strength of the old-fashioned charcoal grills is that they give a unique flavor to the meat.
Weber usually is among the top brands when you are looking for a good quality charcoal grill, and if you don’t want to leave your grill unprotected from the elements, the first thing you should buy is a Weber charcoal grill cover.
