Gas charcoal smoker combination grills are the best of both worlds for a lot of people. Below, we’re highlighting a few of our favorites. If you haven’t yet purchased one, here are some reasons to consider gas charcoal smoker combination grills:
- They take up less room than two (and sometimes three) grills on your deck or patio or in your garage
- They give you more versatility as you cook. For example, you can smoke a brisket on one side, then finish it up on the gas or charcoal side. You can also have multiple things going at one time–burgers, brisket, etc.
- Some gas charcoal smoker combination grills provide an additional infrared option for cooking.
Here are a few questions to ask yourself before you purchase a gas charcoal smoker combination grill:
- Would I rather just have a great gas grill and a great charcoal grill for the same price? Sometimes you can get more for your money this way.
- How large do I want each area to be? This also might be an indicator that you need separate grills.
