Steak is a popular item and for any neighbourhood barbecue master, how they grill their steak is the basis of their reputation! For steak lovers, high heat is the main consideration. You need a barbecue that has enough cooking surface to finish off the steak and a lower heat option to grill it to perfections, after initial searing.
For burger and hot dog lovers, the key to success is to have two heat zones - one for searing and one to adjust proper temperature and avoid overcooking.
When cooking seafood and vegetables, you will need more than one heat zone and lots of grilling space. Make sure that your cooking zone is non-stick or that you oil your grates thoroughly.
And, if you love roast chicken on the grill, a rotisserie is a must! Adding a smoker box is also a convenient way to get that special summer flavour.
