Grill Cooking Power refers to the amount of BTU’s (British Thermal Units) a grill can output. BTU’s are essentially the amount of heat that a grill can produce. Typically the larger the grill the more BTU’s are needed to maximize the grills efficiency. To determine the BTU rating that you need for maximum efficiency, you need to follow a simple rule. The general rule is that you need 100 BTUs per square inch of cooking surface area. To simplify, if you buy a grill that averages around 300 square inches, the BTUs should be around 30,000 to have sufficient heat. Follow these guidelines and the filters below to find the built in grill right for you.
The Cooking Grate Material is an important facet of every good grill. The material should be strong and durable yet also provide good heat transfer. Typically grills use cooking grates made out of Stainless Steel, Cast Iron, Porcelain, or Enamel. While grates such as stainless steel and porcelain provide the best in non-stick surfaces they don’t have the same durability as cast iron. Use the filters below to find the option right for you.
