Barbecue Buying Tips

Back in March we wrote about “What To Look For In A BBQ“. We talked about quality, fuel, size, and warranty, but there is still more to buying a great grill. With all the different models out there, it is important to find the perfect one you’ll be happy with for the long term. In addition to what we already covered, BBQ maintenance and grill accessories can make or break your purchasing decision.


Every BBQ needs to be maintained. You don’t want to be cooking for your guests on a dirty grill. It looks bad and tastes worse. If you don’t care for your barbecue properly it won’t have a very long lifespan. Avoid buying a new grill every few years and take care of your new investment! With that in mind, look at how easy it is to maintain each BBQ and how much time you have to invest in it. Some grills offer great cleaning features, like Jackson Grills. Some grills have removable burners and grease trays, others can be complicated to dismantle and clean. Keep in mind how long you want to spend cleaning your grill. If you aren’t ready to put in the time on your weekend you should be looking for an easy to maintain grill.


You can do much more with a BBQ than throwing on a few hamburgers. You can add a rotisserie, side burner, or steamer. When deciding on your next grill, decide what kind of bells and whistles you want it to have. Even if you’re not ready to purchase all the BBQ accessories immediately, if you think you will need them in the future you will be happier purchasing one with the capabilities to add on.
