We have found the 4 best ways to make summer grilling

A welder for the Weber welding company was frustrated with what was available four grills at the time. With his amazing ingenuity, he cut a buoy in half and made a metal grates to fit over it and produce the first modern barbecue grill.

It was definitely trial and error

At first he wasn’t able to control the smoke when he put the cover on it. It wasn’t until a neighbor told him to drill holes in the cupboard to allow smoke out of the grill that he perfected it. He then added holes on the bottom and the loud smoke to vent out the top and bottom. That gave a controlled heat in the modern barbecue grill was born.

Weber or not

This welder loved the idea so much he started manufacturing them for friends families and neighbors. The business took off so much so that he ended up buying the Weber welding company and transformed it into what we know today is the largest grill company in the world.

Things have heated up

Now there are so many types of barbecue grills it’s hard to keep up with them. There’s everything from the big green egg to smokers, outdoor pizza oven’s and of course trendy outdoor kitchens with permanent grills and refrigerators

    Use high-quality pure lump charcoal. Charcoal briquettes are popular because they’re easy to light and provide even heat to the grill. But the chunks are often held together with chemical additives that can release additional emissions into the air.

  • 2. Avoid lighter fluid.


    Avoid lighter fluid. Lighter fluid is made of hydrocarbons, which can be toxic if ingested. And the smoke given off by lighter fluid-soaked coals contributes to air pollution.

  • 3. Shut down the grill as soon as you're done cooking

    Shut down the grill as soon as you’re done cooking. Most people will let their coals burn down and out when they’re done cooking, which means hours of extra and unnecessary emissions. Instead, when you’re done cooking, simply close the lid and shut any vents.

  • 4. Switch to a natural gas grill

    Switch to a natural gas grill. If you want to go all-in with eco-friendly grilling practices, ditch the charcoal in favor of a natural gas grill.
