In the wide world of grilling, there are gas grills and charcoal grills, and within that, there are even more styles of grill. One popular style of grill is the ceramic grill. It’s usually fairly large and looks something like a kettle. The unit is made from durable porcelain, and it sits on a stand and has a domed lid. Ceramic grills are known for being a little pricey, but you get what you pay for. Here are some advantages to using a ceramic grill.
Ceramic is great at maintaining a consistent heat, no matter what temperature that may be. You can smoke meat at a lower temperature, where even an even temp is critical, or you can operate at a much higher temperature.
Because ceramic grills are so good at holding a temperature, it also means that it doesn’t take quite as much charcoal to get to your desired temperature and keep it there. The unit is overall more efficient, meaning you use less fuel.
One of the best parts about having a ceramic grill is that you can cook just about everything. Because the grill can operate at both really low and really high temperatures, you can cook a wide variety of foods, and the unit can even serve as a smoker. Really, you’re getting two tools in one.
While cooking with fire is not always the safest activity, the unit is relatively safer to use than a more traditional grill. The ceramic walls are very thick, so the outside of the unit will get warm, but not to an unsafe level. While children shouldn’t run amok around grills, it’s at least a little bit safer against burns.
