Swing Barbecue Checklist

Rustic Grilling With The Swivel Grill
  • Unlike simple grills, where the grill grate rests directly above the heat source, the grate of a swivel grill hangs freely above the romantic open fire.
  • In addition to the fascinating sight of the blazing flames and the hot embers, which spray sparks like a campfire, the swivel grill has other advantages to offer such as special sizes for your food and individual adjustability of the height of the grill grate.
Structure
  • A classic swivel grill consists of at least three parts. In the lower part is the fire bowl, which stands on three legs.
  • The round grill grate, which has the dimensions of the bowl, hangs in a stand, some of which is directly connected to the fire bowl.
  • During grilling, the grate can be swung back and forth as well as adjusted in height.
  • The higher your grill grate hangs above the open fire, the lower the temperature for cooking the food.
Types
  • In addition to the charcoal grill, which is available as a swivel grill and a standard model, there are many other models available for parties on the patio and at the campsite.
  • At the Gas grill gas from the bottle provides the heat. The same principle is used by the Electric grill, which is powered by connecting it to a mains power supply. These two variants are very easy to clean, unlike the charcoal grill, because you do not have to empty the ash from the fire bowl.
  • A similarly large grill grate to the swivel grill can be a Smoker grill. This model is composed of a combustion chamber and a cooking chamber. A flap above the grate accumulates heat during cooking. In addition, the smoke provides a particularly hearty aroma.
  • With a ceramic grill, which is built like a smoker grill in small size, you can also cook and bake.
Size
  • Your grill should be the right size for your available space.
  • The swivel grill is available both for the small party and for a large party with many guests.
