Learning the differences between types of cooking fuel can help you to understand the value of each product. Our team at Coffuel specializes in providing exceptional pellets made from coffee husks and pulp. In this latest post, we’re highlighting a few summer grilling secrets to help you cook effectively throughout the summer.

Propane Gas

Propane gas has long been used for summer cooking throughout North America as homeowners depend on their propane barbeques for creating delicious meals for family and friends. Propane gas grills have taken backyard barbeques by storm as an easy and time-saving way to grill your favorite meals. Unlike charcoal or pellets, propane doesn’t offer barbeque smoke flavor that many people enjoy. 


Charcoal is another staple of the barbeque season, particularly for those who enjoy cooking during their camping excursions. The difficulty of working with charcoal is that you must maintain a fire and pay close attention to how the heat is traveling across your grill. If you have enough time, and you’re able to spend an hour or more to create the ideal charcoal setting for your cooking process, you can achieve exceptional results. The taste tests show that charcoal delivers a superior result for cooking chicken and other meats.

Natural Gas

Natural gas is one of the more convenient options for cooking in the summer season. However, connecting a natural gas line to your outdoor cooking system can be difficult and may require professional assistance. One of the benefits of natural gas is that it provides a constant flow of gas to your cooking area. The gas also burns cleaner than propane gas, so it has a number of environmental benefits that propane cannot match. For example, the smoke emitted from the barbeque won’t be as harmful to the environment, and the smoke will have fewer pollutants. Like propane, natural gas cannot deliver the nice smoky taste that charcoal and pellets deliver.

Wood Pellets

Many homeowners are now switching over to cooking with wood pellets this summer season. They are a style of compressed wood that can be used as cooking fuel. One advantage that wood pellets can have over other fuel sources is that the pellets can come in different flavors, which can provide your meals with distinct smoky tastes that couldn’t be achieved otherwise. Make sure you consider the type of wood pellet used and the experience others have had in cooking with the product.

Electric Heat

Electric heating has been a leading part of the summer cooking process for generations. Instead of requiring combustion, it relies on a connection to the electric grid and acts similarly to a frying pan when you’re cooking meals.

One issue many have noticed when cooking with electric heat is that they are unable to replicate the taste of meat that’s been cooked over charcoal, pellets or gas. It’s one of the summer grilling secrets rarely considered by many home cooks. A key advantage of electric cooking for your summer meals is that electric systems are highly portable as long as you have an electrical outlet, and they offer simple temperature control.
