Charcoal Grills: Edging Over Electric Grills?

Barbecuing meat and seafood is a big part of many cuisines all over the world. For many, barbecuing is a hobby. The methods used to barbecue meat have undergone a change over the past couple of decades. With the advent of electric smokers and grills, the traditional charcoal grill has been pushed to the back burner. While an electric or propane smoker may be easier to use, there is a reason why the good old charcoal grill has stuck around. Beginners to the world of barbecue might think charcoal grills are too much of a hassle and an electric smoker is a much better option but this isn’t strictly true.

The following points explain why the charcoal grill is still the best way to BBQ:

  • Temperature

Now, the main reason most people are switching to electric smokers is because the temperature can be easily controlled by the user. However, charcoal grills are much better suited as they can sustain high temperatures of 500-700 degrees. The high temperature ensures that the meat is cooked inside and out. For all the steak lovers out there, a charcoal grill is the only BBQ appliance that can give you the perfect steak with a crispy exterior and a warm, red center. Also, a charcoal grill cooks the meat slowly, which keeps the meat moist and tender for a longer time.

  • Better Flavor

All experienced barbecue lovers swear by charcoal grills. This is because an electric or gas grill cannot give you that rich, smoky barbecue flavor that a charcoal grill can. The distinct smoky flavor you get from a charcoal grill is lost in any other barbecue method.

  • Portability

Charcoal grills are perfect for outdoor barbecue picnics at the park, while camping or even in your own backyard. Unlike electric grills, they do not need to be plugged in and so you can easily set it up and barbecue meat even when you are on the move.

  • Cost

Charcoal grills are by far the least expensive type of BBQ appliance. If you are a beginner to barbecuing and do not want to shell out too much on your first grill, a charcoal grill is a way to go.

  • The Process

Barbecuing on a charcoal grill does take more time and attention compared to the newer grills out there. But for those who enjoy the process of barbecuing, nothing can compare to the charcoal grill. A charcoal grill can be great for an all-day outdoor barbecue party. Also, the process of barbecuing using a charcoal grill ensure that the nutrients in the meat are retained, making it a healthy option.

Charcoal grills also have to be handled with a lot of care. These guidelines by MIT are really helpful to put safety concerns to bed.

The charcoal grill is a favorite among barbecue connoisseurs due to the amazing, unique flavor it imparts to the meat. It has been used for centuries past and is still used by professional chefs as well as amateur barbecue enthusiasts. While it may not offer the push-button convenience offered by newer BBQ appliances, it will continue to remain a favorite with barbecue lovers all over the world.

One thinks of too much work when you think about a recipe with smoke flavoring and grill, but not this time. Here’s a delectable recipe you can try at your home to treat yourself!


  • 2 lb Chicken breasts
  • Olive oil

For the Spice Rub

  • 2 tablespoons of paprika
  • 2 teaspoons of kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of Black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper

For the Citrus Glaze

  • 1/2 cup of Orange juice
  • Fresh Orange zest
  • Lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon of Honey
  • 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons of melted butter

Here’s what you need to do

Take a small bowl and mix all the dry spices in it. It’s a classic rub but don’t let the simplicity fool you because this is what makes this dish so scrumptious and perfectly seasoned. You can also adjust this spice rub as per your convenience and taste.

Cover the boneless and skinless chicken breasts with plastic and then pound them to make them tender and also so that they cook evenly on the grill.

Now brush the chicken breasts with a bit of olive oil and coat the chicken with the spice rub generously. Once the rub is applied, let the chicken sit for a couple of hours so that it absorbs the flavors decently.

In the meantime, you can prepare the glaze. Take 2 fresh oranges and shave some of its skin for the zest. Now cut the oranges in half and juice them so that you get up to ½ a cup of fresh orange juice. You can also use packaged orange juice for the same. Now in a bowl, take about 1 tablespoon of honey, fresh orange juice, lime juice, a bit of the zest, Worcestershire sauce, and melted butter and mix them all together to get a smooth glaze.

Drizzle this glaze on the chicken breasts and now place them on a tray covered with foil.

Keep your pellet grill pre-heated at about 240 F. Now place the chicken pieces skin-side down on the grill with the help of tongs instead of forks or any other sharp object because it might pierce the meat. Let the chicken cook for 45 minutes- 1 hour, turn the pieces halfway through and you can also glaze them again in this procedure. Don’t open the lid too much because the meat needs the heat and to maintain the smoked flavor intact.

Take them off the grill and let them rest for 5-10 minutes. Now serve them with light homemade coleslaw (optional) and your favorite BBQ sauce. An amazing flavor packed plate of smoked chicken prepared on a grill is ready to serve!
