夏天了, 买个烤肉架在家里BBQ, 很享受生活. 俗话说的好, 自家的烤肉份外香嘛. 烤肉炉一般分三种，烧炭的，烧气的，还有就是电烤肉架。
以个人经验来说，中国人用电Grill的比较少，主要是觉得不给力，烧出来的东西不那么正宗。 气和炭的Grill， Gas的很干净，烧炭的会有很多灰的。 不过炭炉烤的BBQ， 肉里有木碳的香味， gas或电的烤炉，在这方面要差很多。 但是炭炉烧烤有一个问题就是起热比较慢，电和gas即开即用，炭炉怎么也要先热个15，20分钟吧。 另外，炭炉价格普遍便宜。因为技术含量低， 电和gas的Grill就要贵多了。
至于炭炉的清洁问题，买的时候可以买那种有one-touch清洁系统的，像weber家的Grill基本上都带那个one-touch cleaning system， 就是在炉子底部有个小罐子，灰都在里面装着呢，一个夏天倒一次就OK，很方便的。
另外Gas Grill 有两种：用natural gas和propane的。Home Depot 和 Lowes 等店里卖的gas grill一般都是用propane的。家里烧菜做饭的gas stove用的是natural gas，此gas非彼gas。两种gas grill 一般不能混用，比如 Weber家，propane gas grill 和 natural gas grill是分开的。 Char-Broil家生产的某些 gas grill是可以duel fuel的，要买配套的 natural gas conversion kit就可以用了。 如果你家 Outdoor 有Gas管子接口的话， 只要Grill上装个转换器就能用了。 Propane 都是独立小罐子， 第一次买28块包括瓶子费，以后旧瓶换新就便宜了。一般来说一小罐子够用一个夏天了。
另外如果住的是自己的House，经济许可的情况下， 建议至少买4个炉头的，否则来了朋友，根本烤不过来，现在俺嫌俺的4炉头的都有点小了。再一个，买除了烤架以外全不锈钢的，好看，好用，结实。烤架一般都是铸铁的。如果烤炉自身没带的话, 可以再买一个罩子。 再建议买一个带熏炉的，侧面一个大不锈钢圆筒，里面有架子，回头熏香肠什么的非常方便。 最好主烤架之外可以侧面带一个小炉头，烤肉的同时，侧面熬粥，做汤什么的。 至于炉子自带温度计肯定是标配了。
总之美国商场里的Grill每台都看起来闪闪亮亮的，感觉每台都能够烤出来好吃的牛排啥的，但其实真的生了火把肉放上去后，你才会发现买的烤肉架好用不好用. 下面就list一些我个人知道的好的户外grill, 供大家参考.
