Grilling can be fun and exciting with barrel grills and cart grills. These were passed on from generation to generation, showcasing improvements and fancier designs as time goes by. There are many barrel grills and cart grills sold either in the local market or online.
Gas grills have multiple varieties but they basically fall into 2 categories: charcoal grills and gas grills. Lately there are also electric indoor grills. Although many people constantly compare the merits of gas grills and charcoal grills, the two remain traditional methods of grilling up to now. However, amongst the two, the most competitive and highly in-demand in the market are charcoal grills.
Charcoal grills come in a range of steel or custom designs. There are 55 gallon oil drums sawed lengthwise to their sides as their grill base and lid, to huge vehicle-sized grills made from brick which weighs almost a ton.
Assessing it in its primitive form, barrel grills look like 55 gallon steel barrels sliced in half on a lengthwise manner. Its hinges are attached in order for the top half to form the lid; thus, the bottom half acts as the charcoal chamber. For airflow control, the vents are cut into its top and bottom sections. The lid is attached to the chimney. Along the bottom portion of ½ of the grill, the cooking grids and charcoal grids are installed while its legs are attached to it.
Barrel grills, like kettle grills, are excellent for grilling and barbecuing. When it comes to barbecuing, one end of the barrel has piled-up lit charcoal while the food is placed in the other section of the barrel. Once you close the lid, the heat can be controlled through the vents. Since, barrel grills are an all-time favorite; you will find many basic and fancy designs available commercially.
