Why Propane is Better than Charcoal

Enjoy easy, fast, delicious grilling!

propane grills kentuckyHave you been enjoying summer so far? There’s a lot to love about this time of year here in Tennessee and southern Kentucky. One of those things is being able to grill outdoors nearly every day of the week.

Whether you’re making burgers and hot dogs, or grilling up the fish you caught this morning, propane is the fuel that can make grilling a pleasure rather than a chore.

Advanced Propane also sells top-quality Broilmaster grills, too! You can customize them with features like side burners, rotisseries, multiple grill levels, flare blockers, smokers, and more! Our propane appliance experts can help you find the right one for your home.

Here are the ways propane has it all over charcoal when it comes to grilling.

Fast and easy

You have enough to do these days. Why add to your workload with all it takes to grill with charcoal? First, you have lug out the bag of charcoal and fill the grill or the chimney. Then you have to manually start the fire, and wait for it to heat up, all before even thinking of getting cooking.

But your work still isn’t done. Once dinner is over, you still have a messy cleanup of the ashes, and you’ll likely end up with soot on your hands and clothes, too.

When you grill with propane, easier is an understatement. Just turn on the supply valve, turn a dial, press the igniter, and it’s on! It’s hot and ready for grilling much faster. And cleanup is easy: When you’re done grilling, turn everything off, quickly clean the grates, and you’re done.


Propane can do something no charcoal grill ever can: Give you precise, instantaneous temperature control. You can adjust the flame to go from medium heat for chicken breasts to high heat for steaks with just the turn of the dial.


Propane beats charcoal in two ways when it comes to the food coming off the grill.

Because you have precise temperature control, you’ll get better results. Your steak will be that perfect medium-rare. The pork tenderloin will be cooked to a safe temperature but won’t be dry. Propane also lets the flavors of your food come out instead of overwhelming them with smoke. Lighter, fresher flavors and seasonings shine in everything from fish to fruit.
