What a long way we have come when it comes to backyard cooking. I remember a time when you bought a charcoal grill from the local supermarket, threw in a bag of charcoal and lit a match. Today, backyard grills can be bigger than the kitchens in some small apartments. They have turned into a big investment and you have to find one that fits your budget and your yard. The biggest are great and they do make a good impression, but you do want room to do other things also. The ones we will look at here are more in the middle price range, and most in this price range are propane gas grills, with natural gas
just starting at this price. There is also one top of the line charcoal grill. So if one of them tickles your fancy, go and take a look. But make sure to do your comparison shopping. Don’t buy from the first place you see. The internet makes this so easy. In a matter of a half hour, you can go to on line shopping sites as well as sites for conventional stores and pick the best price right away. Try to buy before summer. The demand will be higher then and you will less likely to get a good price.
