How to choose your outdoor cooking equipment?
Beautiful days are coming ! Sun, farniente and barbecue: the recipe works every year. But how to be sure to choose the right outdoor cooking equipment? Between the electric plancha, the gas barbecue or the charcoal cooking, the possibilities are numerous.
Coal, gas or electricity: the possibilities are multiple
For those who want an old-fashioned barbecue, with smoke and flames, there is charcoal. Maintenance is easy and a delicious taste of natural smoke will perfume your food. But it also has some disadvantages: a more random cooking, a longer start-up and long hours spent stirring embers.
In comparison, electrical or natural gas equipment offers much better results:
– More effective heat
The electric barbecue will offer you many practical advantages: it is small and does not need fuel. On the other hand, it is rather slow to heat and can be difficult to regulate. Moreover, it does not offer any special flavor and can prove tedious maintenance.
Natural gas, for its part, offers superior heating power, cooking quality and precision to quickly prepare all the grills you like whenever you want. On some models, you can even control the temperature and the heating time.
And at the installation level how does it work?
Installing a barbecue is not complicated. Just have an open space and a ray of sunshine. For an electric cooking appliance, it would be ideal to install it on the terrace. Indeed, in a garden, not always easy to find a catch!
For gas, it is necessary to contact a professional and install outside your home a natural gas outlet for a safe connection.
There are also models of barbecue functioning with a bottle of butane or propane , to be connected by means of a regulator.
