Will that 4 burner gas grill you’ve been coveting be enough? Investing in a gas grill often leaves shoppers scratching their heads over amenities, and with America’s ‘go big or go home’ mantra, it can be easy to over-purchase. You need the low-down on burners now to avoid getting burned later by your grill purchase.
4 Burner Grill: Is More, Better?
As it turns out, cooking performance is not solely dictated by the number of burners. It’s more about even heat distribution – circumventing those irksome hot and cold spots. But that’s not to say there aren’t a few true generalizations when it comes to the number of burners on your chosen gas grill model. As a general rule, burner number and grill size go hand-in-hand, with larger gas grills sporting more burners than their smaller counterparts. You simply need a sufficient number of burners for the size of the grill to ensure even cooking temperatures.
Then Why Get ‘More’ Burners?
As a general rule, added burners earn you a bit more grill diversification, allowing you to cook different items at varying temperatures simultaneously. Sear a steak while simultaneously cooking more delicate vegetables with added burner options – including a side burner, which also offers the flexibility to get marinades or accompaniments going grill-side.
