by : sresell

There is nothing better than getting your family together and preparing a barbecue. And I am sure you or your family have a barbecue grill in your backyard or patio.

There are a lot of different types of grills to choose from; however it seems that a lot of families are transitioning out of the traditional charcoal grill to the more modern gas barbecue grills. Have you seen those new gas barbecue grills? They have all kinds of features with different levels of functionality.

Well, if you are a barbecue enthusiast like me you may already have purchased one or perhaps you have been considering buying one?

I am sure you have seen a ton of different models at your local home improvement store, or maybe you've looked at them online for the best barbecue grill? Or if you are really lucky, you may have one of those specialty barbecue stores close to you? (I happen to have one less than a mile from my home. Needless to say I spend a lot of time there.)

With so many new models and features, it's tough to figure out whether your choice of a gas grill is a good or a bad one. Those with a good buying experience probably did a lot of research and really asked themselves the hard questions on the best barbecue grill that suits their particular needs. Those that regret buying one probably rushed out and bought the first one they saw.

So, before you venture out and buy the first good looking gas grill you put your eyes on, it would probably be a bit more prudent to invest some time and effort into researching and finding out what the best choice is for you and what is really within your price range and budget. This way you will be more satisfied with your choice of a new gas barbecue grill and most likely it will be a lot easier on your pocket book as well.

In any event, knowing what features you want and need is the first step. So what exactly do you need to bear in mind when choosing the best gas barbecue grill for you?

Below is a list of some things you ought to consider before choosing your next gas grill:

What are you using the grill for?
Do you need it to be portable or is it going to be a fixture in your backyard?
Do you need a small or a large barbecue grill?
What are some of the specific features you want (or need)?
Do you prefer to use lava rocks or ceramic briquettes?
Do you need a single or dual heat controls?
What kind of gas are you planning on using with your grill? What about the BTU rating?
Does it come assembled or do you need to take care of it?
What about shipping or transporting your new barbecue grill?
What is the return policy / warranty and do they offer a satisfaction gurantee?

Figuring out some of these things in advance can go a long way before buying your next barbecue gas grill.
