If nothing makes your mouth water like steak over hot coals - then charcoal grilling is probably your summertime pastime. Charcoal grills are available in portable, smoker, kettle-style and deluxe grills. Charcoal barbecues basically consist of a grill that holds hot coals, a cooking grate where you cook food, and a ventilated lid to retain the heat. If you plan to keep your charcoal grill outside, choose a heavy-duty steel model with thick cooking grates. Charcoal grills are often sold on wheeled carts for easier mobility. Even though charcoal isn't as risky to use as propane gas, charcoal still produces carbon monoxide (CO) while it burns so it's always wise to grill in a well-ventilated area. Charcoal grills range in price online from $25 hibachi models to $2000 deluxe smoker/grills.
