Best Grills and Smokers

Grills or Smokers

Torn on whether to invest in a grill or smoker? While both options let you create delicious meals, they offer very different cooking experiences.

Grills let you cook your favorite meats or veggies quickly on direct heat at high temperatures over charcoal, gas, or infrared light. With certain grills, you can imbue a smoky flavor with the addition of a smoker box.

But even if you add wood smoke accessories to your grill, you can’t get the same level of slow-cooked smokiness in your meat that you can with a smoker. Unlike a grill, smokers don’t give you the option of cooking your food over direct heat. Large cuts of meat like brisket require several hours or even a full day in the smoker to cook properly—but the result is oh-so-worth it.

The best grills and smokers for you come down to preference. Enjoy shopping for barbecue grills and find the right appliance for you.

As you begin the process of shopping online for a barbecue grill or smoker, you’ll discover that some barbecue grills can certainly be utilized as smokers.
