You’ve just read another article bashing millennials for being soft and unable to deal with life’s pressures, and you feel very triggered. What criteria do these writers use to make these determinations and what does a person who writes articles know about being soft? You console yourself that you are the hardest person out there by reminding yourself that you never miss an episode of MeatEater. In fact, the previous episode charged you so much that you called your closest friends and convinced them to come with you on a camping trip. Top of your agenda is eating wild hog and, to prepare it, you need the latest and most sophisticated camping grill in town.
For an extreme Rinella-inspired activity like the one you’re planning, your camping grill should be easy to carry and sturdy. The reason for this is that in the wild, the hunter sometimes becomes the hunted, and the faster you can get out of there the better your chances of survival. Further, with a sturdy design, your grill can withstand the extreme elements.
To boost your chances of having a successful expedition, you need a pair of binoculars to look over the horizon in search of a good hunting ground, a trail camera to help you trace the movement patterns of your preferred game, and the good old camping tent to ensure that you’re protected from the strong winds that blow at night.
At the end of the day, we all want a succulent steak. A camping grill will help you to it regardless of whether you set it up in your backyard or deep in the woods.
Creating that moment of heaven in your mouth that we also call grilled meat should not be affected by cost. Our selection of camping grills has one for every income segment. However, if you want a grill with deluxe features such as a perfect-flow pressure control system, we would advise you to go for a more-expensive one. That said, please try and avoid cheap camping grills as they are fickle and may not give you the long-term service you deserve.
The price of our selected camping grills ranges from around $40 to $180, with the differences being accounted for by the materials used and features. For example, a camping grill that has a porcelain-enameled grate will cost you more than one that has a steel cooking grate. Similarly, a grill that has a wood-side shelf is more expensive than one without.
The primary function of a camping grill is to give your meat that unique roast flavor and aroma that can only be achieved when it’s exposed to direct heat exceeding 150 degrees Celsius (302 Fahrenheit). Let’s examine the features you have to consider when purchasing one.
There are clear variations in the manner our selected camping grills are made. One of the most discernible differences is the material. While all the products here have stainless steel as their primary component, it is the reinforcements that differentiate them. Our camping grills are either painted, BTU, or heavy-duty steel.
Size and Weight
Size and weight are also important features to take into consideration when purchasing a camping grill. If you’re an energetic and outgoing person who unwinds by going on camping trips, a small and light grill will serve you well. With one, you don’t have to expend precious energy hauling a large load up a rocky terrain. On the other hand, if your idea of leisure involves grilling in the backyard, a large camping grill will look in place there.
Size is also linked to cooking area. Despite our small-sized grills being portable, their cooking area is rather small, and one has to wait for pieces to cook before laying down others. If you have a large amount of food to grill, this may prove to be tedious.
Fuel type is another important consideration factor. Our selected products either use charcoal or propane gas. If you find charcoal to be messy and difficult to use, a gas-fueled camping grill is the one for you.
Ease of Use
In the current microwave world, patience is hard to come by. When food is involved, this quality becomes virtually non-existent. We are aware of this and have included in our selection a camping grill with an InstaStartTM start button to ensure that you can start grilling immediately after placing the food on the cooking surface.
Evenly-cooked meat is the hallmark of good grilling. Unfortunately, unless you’re a Masai pastoralist, you cannot achieve this feat over an open fire. However, our featured camping grills have adjustable airflow, enabling you to control the grilling heat.
In order to get the maximum bang for your buck, you must also consider the extras that come with the grill. Some of the features you should look out for include a warming rack, a stand, and even wheels.
Further, manufacturer support is crucial. This is an area that our selected brands take very seriously. Depending on the product you choose, the warrant can last from three to ten years.
