When choosing an outdoor grill, we must take into consideration the space in which our grill will be located within our home. If you’ve got a small flat with a terrace or a balcony, the gas grill might not be the best option, since gas can blaze up and isn’t safe in a tight urban space. If we’ve got a large garden or patio, the possibilities are obviously wider. If there’s no outdoor space at all, a portable grill that can be taken with us to parks, camping or the beach might be our best option.
Also keep in mind that there’s a variety of accessories to help us get the most out of cooking outdoors. From BBQ sauces and utensils, to barbecue covers and cleaning products to help us keep our barbecue grill in mint condition.
Backyard BBQ experts usually debate about the virtues of charcoal versus gas, and electric; though we can’t really clarify which one is best we’ll make clear that charcoal grills supports the “low and slow” method of cooking offering a nice smoky flavor, gas grills usually have a superior flame with less smoke, and electric grills are the fastest of the three but adding very little flavor through the process of grilling. What’s the right one for you?

Here’s a simple BBQ chicken recipe that will make your summer time sweet and tasty:
Grilled Glazed Chicken thighs
- 4 pounds fresh chicken thighs
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- 6 tablespoons of honey
- ¾ teaspoon ground ginger
- ½ teaspoon of minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon of mustard
In a small bowl, combine the last five ingredients, mix well and place it into a large resealable bag and marinate the chicken. Refrigerating overnight is best, if not possible, then marinate for at least 4 hours. Refrigerate remaining marinade for basting when grilling.
Drain chicken and discard marinade. Grill covered over medium heat for 15-20 minutes or until juices run clear, turning and basting occasionally.
