What's Up With Infrared Grills?
It sounds pretty high-tech, but the concept is relatively simple. Infrared grills have a mostly solid, corrugated grate between the flames and the food. The grate protects food from flare-ups—ideal for fatty meats. It also distributes heat more evenly, allowing for consistent cooking across the grill. More control also means less gas consumption, up to 30 percent less. The one downside is that you can no longer blame your burned burgers on a hot spot.
Grill on the Go
A lot of grills are called 'portable'—usually that means they're just small. But Char-Broil's rugged Grill2Go was actually designed to be hauled around. It has a sturdy base, a top that snaps closed for transport and it runs on portable propane bottles. For those big grill-outs, it can run on larger propane tanks using an optional hose and adapter. It comes with an infrared grill surface, which makes sense because of the close proximity of the burners to the grate. It's a perfect grill for camping, tailgating and road trips.
