Early July often means barbeques galore – is there any better way to celebrate Independence Day than gathering outdoors with your closest friends and family?
If you’re on a last-minute hunt for a new grill before the holiday, you’ve come to the right place. Ace Hardware of Fort Collins carries a wide range of grills to suit most every space, and we’re happy to help you decide which grill is right for you.
One of the most popular options is the gas grill, which are well-loved for many reasons – namely, their incredible convenience and versatility! Gas grills heat up quickly, unlike charcoal or wood pellet grills which require time to get to high temperatures. Gas grills are most often fueled by propane, which is easily accessible and relatively cheap. Gas grills are also easy to clean – there is no ash to dispose of when you use a gas grill, and many come with removable drip trays which make cleanup a breeze. Gas grills are also able to maintain stable levels of incredibly high temperatures, which takes the headache and guesswork out of your grilling experience.
