The Complete Guide to Buying a Grill


Are you thinking of purchasing a grill this summer?

Grilling your food is most definitely one of the best ways to enjoy quality time with your friends and family. You get to make and eat home-cooked food and experience a relaxing time with people you love. However, you need certain backyard essentials to have the perfect outdoor cooking and eating station, along with your grill of course! That’s why our team of backyard living experts at Jacuzzi Premium Home Leisure have gathered some of the best tips and tricks to help you buy the perfect grill for your backyard and accessorize it perfectly.

Determine Your Budget

Grills are available in many different price ranges, which makes it easy to become confused about which one to go with. It’s important to determine your personal budget first, so you have an idea of what you’re working with. This budget should include the base amount that you can spend on a new grill, products to clean and maintain it, gas or propane, and any repairs or replacement parts down the line.

One of the best things that you can do is be honest with your salesperson about your budget upfront. At Jacuzzi Premium Home Leisure in Saskatoon, our team of backyard leisure experts is just that – experts! They know just about everything there is to know about our grills for sale in Saskatoon. They will be able to help you find the right grill for you and your family, at the right price point and of the best quality.

Quality of the Grill

Grills are manufactured using different quality materials. Some of the more common materials include stainless steel, cast iron, cast aluminum, and sheet metal. Grills will vary in price and availability based on the quality of the materials they are made with.

If your budget doesn’t allow for a higher-quality grill, you may want to think about raising it. Finding a product that is crafted using durable materials and built using modern technology is more likely to last longer and offer an overall improved experience.

Size of the Grill

The size of the grill you buy depends on a few factors. It really depends on how many people you are going to be cooking for, the space you have, and your budget. Calculate the average people you can serve at a party and measure the space for a grill in your backyard too. Purchasing a smaller sized grill might allow for better quality to fit into your budget.

Why spend extra money on a large grill when you are not going to get its benefit?

The Best Features

When buying a grill, you will come across features like smokers, rotisserie burners, lighting, side burners, warmers, utensil holders, and more. Smokers allow you to cook at lower temperatures, side burners allow you to cook at the same time you grill, rotisserie burners will make your food juicier, and similarly, other features allow more luxuries.

However, you should keep in mind that many extra features are seldom used. Additional features can cost you additional money, which is important to keep in mind when planning your budget and working with one of our backyard living specialists.

Natural Gas, Propane, Wood PELLET & Charcoal

When you’re looking for a grill, there will be a few options to choose from: natural gas, propane, wood pellet, and charcoal.

If you don’t have a natural gas connection at the place you are going to use the grill, then you will have to go with either a propane or charcoal grill. If you have a connection, then you should absolutely consider investing in a natural gas grill, even if it will cost you a little extra. However, many grills come with both features nowadays.

A charcoal or wood pellet grill is the desired option for many because of the flavour they add to the food you cook and how easy they are to use. It all depends on your personal tastes and preferences. Speak with your backyard living specialist to determine which one is best for you.

Your Grill Installation

Once you’ve brought your grill home and installed it properly, it’s time for the finishing touches! These accessories should meet somewhere in the middle between functional and nice to look at. You’re going to need some skewers on hand, just in case you decide to make kabobs, along with other grilling essentials like an apron, gloves, tongs, and a cleaning brush. When buying a cleaning brush, steer clear of the brushes with metal bristles, as they can break off and even make their way into the food your eating! Instead, opt for a natural cleaning solution or a brush with nylon bristles.

Decorate your outdoor cooking area with an outdoor mat, large umbrella, flowers, outdoor décor, and even a quaint seating or dining area.
