Green Grilling Tips

As our society becomes more environmentally aware, consumers are constantly looking for ways to be more efficient in their everyday life and less harmful to the environment.

Below are some helpful “green” grilling tips from Cal Flame so you can grill your favorite meals without harming the environment.

Gas vs. Charcoal

  • Although it doesn’t offer the same flavor as charcoal, the cleanest, most energy-efficient grilling option is gas grills (natural gas or propane), with electric grills coming in a distant second.
  • The demand for natural gas and electric products certainly has environmental impacts, (offshore drilling, hydro-electric dams and coal-fired power plants), but these two options still offer the cleanest, most energy-efficient way to burn fuel.
  • Wood and charcoal burners pollute the air with tiny particles of soot that can contribute to chronic lung and heart problems.

Use Organic Meats & Produce

  • Look for free-range meats that have been grass-fed or produced using certified organic feed.

Use Eco-Friendly Briquettes

  • Briquettes or lump charcoal are NOT completely earth-friendly because burning either of them can cause pollution.
  • Producing wood-based lump charcoal can contribute to global warming and/or deforestation.

Dispose of Ashes Properly

  • Wood ash is alkaline. It can be used in the garden as a fertilizer, but only if you’re trying to neutralize very acidic soil so apply it with care.
  • Charcoal ash contains chemical residues which are harmful to plants and should be disposed of in the garbage.

Light Your Fire without Fluid

  • Chimney starters and electric probes are good alternatives to lighter fluids, which emit harmful
  • ·VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) when lit. They are inexpensive (usually $12-$15) and provide a fast, reusable, pollution-free alternative for lighting up the grill.
