Charcoal vs Propane Grills

An Unfair Fight

gas grills Columbia, ny The weather is getting mild in the Hudson Valley and surrounding areas. Do you know what that means? That means it’s grilling season. And if you’re in the market for a new grill, you might be trying to decide between buying a propane grill versus a charcoal grill. Perhaps charcoal grills are more familiar to you, but there are a lot of reasons to choose a propane grill instead of a charcoal grill.

Propane offers significant advantages over charcoal. With a propane grill you get versatility, control and precision, fast and easy usage, and the freedom to make the grill yours and customize it to your needs and tastes.

So when deciding whether to purchase a propane versus a charcoal grill, the answer is pretty obvious. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons it makes sense to choose a propane grill over a charcoal grill.


Unlike charcoal, propane is very versatile. There are lots of appliances that propane can power in addition to your grill in and around your home. Inside your home you can use it for your cooking range, for heating, water heating, and other appliances like clothes dryers and generators. Outside of your home, propane can bring your backyard to the next level by powering things like fire pits, patio heaters, pool and spa tub heaters, and outdoor lighting. Charcoal can’t do all that.

Propane can power many of the appliances in and around your home. You can also have your propane grill connected to your propane tank, which can supply propane to all of the appliances in and around your home. What could be easier than that?

Control and Precision

Professionals choose propane for cooking because it gives them precise temperature control. Charcoal grills can’t match that. Why not cook like a pro with propane?

Fast and Easy

Propane grills light instantly and heat faster than charcoal grills. Plus they’re a breeze to clean. That makes them fast and easy to use and clean up.

Make It Yours

Propane grills also give you the opportunity to customize. If you’re a burgers and hotdogs family, you can keep simple. If you’re a bit more adventurous, you can add fun features like rotisseries, side burners, smoker boxes, and more.
