    Default How Often Do You Grill?

    I was just grilling some brats and see I need to do some grill maintenance. It's dirty. The screws are loose (I may have a few of those myself). I had to clean out the regulator and have replaced the heat diffuser tray twice.

    I have lived in this condo for 5 years and it is my 2nd grill.

    Which got me to thinking...

    How often do I use it? Do I use it more than most people?

    I grill two or three night per week. It's easier than cooking indoors due to the cleanup and odors. It's supposed to be healthier.

    I figure I use the little gas grill 100 to 150 times per year and the pellet smoker every other week.

    That opens up the gas versus charcoal question. And grilling versus smoking.

    How often do you grill?

    I used to grill at least once a week (if not more often than that) but then I got a George Foreman grill and now I technically grill several times a week but rarely on the grill outside on the patio (sometimes I just use the George Foreman like a pannini press.

    I agree. Grilling is easier as far cleanup and the odors. Over the summer, I grilled at least two times a week, maybe as many times as four. As the seasons have changed, I've been cooking indoors more. This includes a shift towards more baking and using the slow cooker.

    I have a second (or third) hand propane grill that was probably manufactured about the time the Doncos won (or even lost?) their last Superbowl. I remember replacing a couple fasteners summer before last before I took it on a trip to Grand Junction. It's had a lot of adventures but is showing the love.

    A couple of times a week for the grill and a couple of times a month for the smoker.

    I use the propane grill one or two times a week and the pellet grill once or twice a month. Our grill sucks but I'm not going to get a new one until we move.

    I have a tailgate sized Brownstone flattop and I'd like to get a full size one.

    I'd charcoal every day if it was more convenient- tastes best. As far as my propane grill, use it once or twice a week year-round. A quick clean prior to grilling and then replace as needed. I get 4-5 years from a Home Depot/Lowe's end of season special.

    I have a gas grill, pellet smoker and a Blackstone. In warm weather I use them at least a couple times a week, colder weather less frequently.
    Nice thing about the smoker is it holds great temperature even when it’s cold.

    I have a Weber kettle and would use it exclusively except for stupid fire code prohibiting its use in a multi-family dwelling.

    A chimney starter makes a charcoal grill easy to use.

    This sounds like a question at the doctor's office...about to lay down the health hammer.

    I can neither confirm nor deny that I grill. And I'm glad you didn't asking about my smoker habit.
