Backyard grilling is a summer tradition. As soon as the weather warms up, the grills come out. Backyard grill masters stake their claim and cook everything from hot dogs to steaks. Grills used to be little more than hot coals, but today’s most sophisticated grills have plenty of bells and whistles to assist the outdoor chef.

Ellsworth B. A. Zwoyer invented charcoal briquettes in 1897, but it wasn’t until George Stephen, a Weber Brothers Metal Works welder discovered that cutting a metal buoy in half made the perfect domed grill and the top sealed in flavor. The Weber charcoal grill was born. Gas grills didn’t come along until the 1960s, when Arkansas Louisiana Gas Company employees, William G. Wepfer and Melton Lancaster, redesigned a charcoal grill and made it run on bottled propane. Other grilling milestones include the introduction of George Foreman’s kitchen grilling machines in 1994 and infrared grills for consumers in 2000. The popular choices for most outdoor grill masters are still charcoal and gas. How do you decide which to choose?

Charcoal or Gas: What’s the Difference?

There’s a lot of debate about which type of grill makes better food. There are diehard fans on both sides. Charcoal grilling aficionados tout the smoky flavor of meat. Gas grill masters love the convenience of using a gas-fired grill. What are the differences?

A gas grill is easy to use. Turning a knob fires the heat source up. Other knobs adjust the heat. Liquid propane, the fuel that heats the grill, is stored in portable tanks that are refillable. Gas grills are easy to clean. The drawback is that gas grills don’t enhance the flavor of the food.

Charcoal grilling cannot be quickly done. Building, lighting and heating charcoal briquettes takes time. Learning how to cook foods evenly without scorching takes a bit of practice. Proponents say the time and skill building is worth it because the charcoal gives meat a delicious smoky flavor. Clean up is more difficult, but charcoal grills are much less expensive than gas.

Tips for Grilling

It doesn’t matter which type of grill you choose, there are some fundamentals that will make your grilled foods taste better and save you from illnesses caused by underdone food. Food that is not thoroughly cooked can cause illness and could seriously compromise the health of people with weakened immune systems, such as young children and the elderly.

Follow these tips for a great outdoor cookout:

Make sure your grill is clean before using it. Choose a safe location for your grill. Don’t grill too close to your house, garage, fencing or any flammable substances.For thinner pieces, such as thinly sliced meat and skewers, use high heat and cook through quickly.Larger foods require slower cooking. Use indirect heat so the inside cooks without scorching the outside.Don’t guess about whether your food is done or not. Use a thermometer to make you’re your meat reaches the correct internal temperature.

Yoga moves are incredibly effective at carving out an hourglass silhouette. Holding the poses engages the obliques [which cinch the waist like a corset] and transversus abdominis [which tucks in lower-belly bulge]. And deep breathing curbs the output of costisol, a stress hormone that promotes belly fat. Plus, research shows that just one yoga session can increase levels of the calming brain chemical GABA by 27 percent.

Nowadays, more and more people are using the Web to shop for a wide variety of items because of convenience. If you’re one of them, do you make sure that the item you buy has a Money Back Guarantee? Having this will ensure you can return the item if you’re not satisfied or when there’s something wrong with it. This is something you don’t usually get in a physical store, no wonder people love to shop online.
