There's really no end to the amount of money you can spend on outdoor grills, so set your budget before you even begin shopping. Is it a few hundred dollars, or a few thousands? It's very easy to get caught up in the excitement of all the fun accessories that are available with many of the outdoor grills, so be firm with yourself before you shop.

Now decide whether the outdoor grill is for yourself and your family that will enjoy the odd meal outdoors, or will you be entertaining large groups of family and friends! There are some outdoor bbq grills on the market that suit two people and some outdoor grills that literally have hundreds of square inches of cooking space. You really need to decide beforehand the needs and requirements of your outdoor bbq grill.

You may want to consider some of the tabletop outdoor bbq grills if you will be cooking for only one or two people. If you decide to cook a meal for several people then the outdoor tabletop bbq grills will make it difficult for you.

Which do we choose; the charcoal or the gas outdoor bbq grills? This is not an easy question. The traditionalist will insist that charcoal gives the food a better taste or flavor. The dripping that comes of the meat mixes with the charcoal to create a more flavorful smoke that adds flavor to the meat while it cooks. If you are looking for outdoor charcoal bbq grills there are plenty on the market to choose from.

However, propane is usually much safer to deal with than charcoal. Outdoor grills that run on gas light with the touch of a button rather than needing lighter fluid and matches. They can also be controlled much easier. And when that juice from the meat drips down in a charcoal grill, this can cause flame flare-ups. If you have young children or pets that may be running around the grill, you might opt for gas and learn how to season your meat to make up for the lack of flavor.

Regardless of the type of outdoor grills you may choose from, the real key is learning how to use it! Read the manufacturer's instructions and try out some new recipes in order to make the best tasting food; this way you'll enjoy your outdoor meals no matter what model you purchase.
