Top Grills for Family Camping

When shopping for your next family camping trip, there are many options to consider when choosing a grill. Do you want a traditional charcoal cookout? Or maybe a clean, solar cooked dinner? Or perhaps you prefer propane grills. Here are the finer points of the different grills.

Propane Camping Grill Review for Family Camping

Propane grills are compact, portable, and pretty efficient. They are one of the most popular types of grills to take camping. There are a wide variety of propane grills to choose from. This type of grill is great for burgers, hotdogs, steaks, and most everything else. The clean burn of propane allows you to taste the meat and not the heat, which is good for a nice seasoned piece of meat. The propane tank is compact and easy to attach to the grill, and replacement tanks are easy to store in your RV or with your camping equipment.

Charcoal Camping Grill Review for Family Camping

Charcoal grills are the other most popular type of grill for family camping trips. They are easy to use and many people prefer the smoky taste the charcoal gives the food. Charcoal grills are by far the cheapest of the grilling options, and some are even available for under $10. A home project for the family could even be to make your own charcoal grill to bring with you.

Infrared Camping Grill Review for Family Camping

For meals that require intense heat, such as vegetables and meat, infrared grills are a quick and efficient alternative to traditional gas and charcoal grills. Infrared grills use a super heating technology which cooks much hotter and faster than traditional grills using less fuel to generate the heat. The way an infrared grill works is by igniting propane or natural gas to superheat a ceramic tile, causing it to emit a thermal radiation that cooks food. The heat is evenly distributed across the cooking surface and temperatures reach over 900 °F. If you are planning to “slow cook” a duck or roast, this would probably not be the best choice, but it is great for evenly cooked steaks, chicken, vegetables, etc. Another good advantage of an infrared grill is that it is easy to use in any season with any kind of weather. An open flame grill is difficult to use, for example, on a very windy day, while the wind will not affect the cooking abilities of an infrared grill.

Solar Camping Grill Review for Family Camping

Solar grills are perfect for a sunny day cookout, and for a slow cooked meal. There are several types of solar grills. Some reflect light focusing it into heat, others use black ceramic tiles to concentrate sunlight, and some use the sun to heat trapped air. Solar camping grills are still a fresh, new item, which makes them hard to find, but there are some sites that sell them.

While the type of grill you buy depends on your cooking preferences, there are a lot of options worth considering. And don’t forget the classic camping cooking method, an open fire!
