Infrared BBQ grill

With the expiration of a key patent, major gas-grill manufacturers,including market leader Char-Broil, have scrambled to bring infraredcooking to the masses with models in the $500 to $1,000 range.Previously, such grills cost as much as $5,000.

The grills are still powered by propane and have traditional gasburners that heat mostly by convection€” or hot air. But they also cancook foods with radiant heat generated by one or more infrared burners.(Infrared falls between visible light and microwave energy on theelectromagnetic spectrum.)
