Frequently Asked Barbecue & Grill Questions

Believe it or not, this is probably our most commonly asked question. Sales Unlimited, which operates and our hearth related site, is located in Veradale, Washington, just east of Spokane, Washington.

If you are referring to the materials used to fabricate the barbecue, then stainless steel is probably the most durable, long lasting product used in barbecues, burners and their components. Porcelain coated steel and cast iron are quality materials that are generally more reasonably priced.

These terms refer to the most desirable quality of stainless steel available when constructing grills and grill burners. The gauge refers to the thickness of the steel. "304" stainless is one of several grades of non-corrosive steel that can safely be used in food preparation products.

Portable grills are cooking grills mounted on a mobile cart, usually with wheels. They can be easily moved and are self contained. Most barbecue styles are these portable type. Drop in or built in grills are barbecue heads that are framed or built in to a permanent cabinet and finished with non combustible materials such as rock or tile. By building a grill (and accessories such as side burners) into a customized fixture, you can create the kitchen of your dreams-outdoors!  Buil in's make some of the best bbq grills period!

Basically, there are two types of igniters-manual and automatic. Piezo spark and rotary are both manual igniters and require the user to push a button or turn a dial to create the spark that ignites the gas in your grill. You may have to do this several times to ignite the gas. Electronic igniters are an automatic way of igniting the gas in the grill. A 9-volt battery or electricity is used to internally create the spark.

There is no difference from a grill performance or operational standpoint. However, the use of propane requires a portable tank be hooked up to your barbecue and the tank must be filled on a periodic basis. Natural gas must be readily available at your location, and connecting your barbecue to natural gas does limit your mobility somewhat. The benefit with natural gas is its convenience, plus you don't run the risk of running out of fuel in the middle of your food preparation. Barbecues generally must be ordered either natural gas or propane ready. Converting from one fuel to the other is generally not an option. In some cases, however, a conversion kit may be available, depending on the ease of installation for the consumer.

Flare ups from especially fatty or drippy foods are controlled by burner shields sometimes called "flame tamers." These shields not only protect the burners form food residue build up, but also lessen flare ups and virtually eliminate grease fires because the grease is not dripping directly onto the flame or burners. In most cases the flame tamer can be easily removed for clean up.

Double wall construction is a feature that allows for better roasting of foods. Juices and flavors are kept in the food rather than being burned away. Two layers of steel (usually stainless) are separated by a pocket of air that insulates in much the same way as your kitchen oven. This double wall insulation is featured on the hood and the oven shell of many barbecues.

In many cases rotisseries are an option, however they are an easy way to prepare large roasted meats such as turkeys, hens and roasts. Let the rotating spit and infrared burner do the work for you. One of the most important things to look for in a rotisserie is the turning diameter. While most spits can hold up to 50 or 60 pounds of food in weight, the spit must be far enough from the burners and grill grates to allow proper space to turn the food.

Depending on where you live in the country and whether or not you choose delivery to a shipping terminal or home delivery, your barbecue should arrive within about two weeks of the order. Orders placed today, will generally not leave our warehouse until the following business day. Freight companies do not count the day of pickup, weekends or holidays as ship days. We can estimate the ship time when you call, however factors beyond our control may affect the delivery time.

This is a very broad question that is determined by several variables. First, the weight of the shipment is to be considered. Then, the distance from our warehouse that the product is shipped and whether you choose freight terminal pick-up or home delivery will also affect the cost of shipping. As an example, on a 400 pound shipment from our warehouse in Spokane, Washington to the freight terminal in West Palm Beach, Florida the shipping costs would run approximately $225.
