    "Just a quick follow-up note on the work your crews did at my house over the last couple of weeks. In short; the porch railing, painting and tuck pointing was done professionally and looks great. More important, the crews that were out were customer service oriented, thoughtful, friendly and always let me know what was going on. I would not hesitate to recommend Reilly Painting."

  • Outdoor Grilling: Gas vs. Charcoal

    2-summer-grilling-lgn

    It’s that time of year again. Time to defrost the burgers, steaks and chicken and get ready for some outdoor grilling. When it comes to the type of grill to use, which do you prefer: gas or charcoal? Here are some tips for choosing the best grill for you:

    Just Turn It On

    It may not be the most important decision in your life, but the different styles of barbecue grill can certainly give rise to debate.

    Your choice of grill may also define who you are.

    “Most people are going to go one way or the other. They’re not going to have a split decision,” said Dana Henderson, Barbeques Galore’s area manager for Northern California. “The right grill for you is the completely wrong grill for me. Picking out the grill that suits your needs really depends on your preference.”

    People loyal to the gas grill are generally those who favor ease and flexibility in their outdoor cooking. Gas grills also offer greater versatility, allowing you to cook burgers and vegetables and heat buns at the same time without burning any of them.

    “You can do zone cooking where you have a hot, a cold and a medium zone all in the same grill,” Henderson said.

    The simple twist of a knob is another major attraction for people who favor the gas option. With no coals or wood chips to heat, gas grillers can flip a switch and be ready to cook within 10 minutes, a big plus for those living in colder climates that want to barbecue year round.

    Light My Fire

    While gas grills may offer ease and convenience, and gas grill lovers claim there is no taste difference, those in the charcoal camp disagree wholeheartedly.

    “I’ll give someone a piece of something cooked over charcoal and they’re just amazed because the gas grills we’re so used to just have no flavor,” said Ray “Dr. BBQ” Lampe. “Gas grillers talk about convenience, but there’s more to it than that,” said Lampe, who has appeared on the Food Network’s “The Best Thing I Ever Ate.”
