Recently my wife and daughter gave me permission to buy a grill. So I did my research and fell into the rabbit hole between two school of thought. Propane or Charcoal! I wasn’t sure, but when I considered the cost and flavor factors. I ended up going with charcoal.
The thing that was most interesting about the process was getting to know some websites about grills and cooking. BBQ Guys and America’s Test Kitchen led me to the grill I have today. (The Weber Performer Deluxe)
They were super informative and entertaining. The BBQ Guys videos are hosted byChef Tony Matassa. Although corny, I enjoyed the signature line that end all their videos. Check them our and you’ll see what I mean.
Christopher Kimball is the host of America’s Test Kitchen and just seems delighted to let other chef cook, test equipment and explain process. The way he facilitates conversation is just plain-old fun to watch.
Both host seem extremely knowledgeable. I happen to be a big fan of listening to folks that know of which they speak and are passionate when doing so.
