A Look at How Backyard Grills Work

Did you know that approximately two-thirds of households in the United States have a grill? There’s no doubting the popularity of grills in the U.S., but have you ever wondered how a backyard grill works? At its most basic, a grill features a fuel source, a heating element, a cooking surface, and grill support. In a charcoal grill, for example, charcoal (the fuel source and the heating element) heats up the cooking surface above it which cooks food once it is placed on the grill. In a gas grill, propane passes through a gas burner which then heats up the cooking surface.
