When you’re trying to remain cool on a hot summer day, the last thing you’ll want to do is turn on your stove and prepare dinner. Granted, you could always go out to eat, but usually, everyone has the same idea, and restaurants will be packed when you arrive. There’s always take-out, too, but that can be a tad pricey. Therefore, to beat the heat and cook at home, you should fire up the grill and cook outside. Here’s why:
Keeps the Heat Outside
Unlike using the stove in your kitchen, a grill outdoors will emit heat and radiate it into thin air — and not throughout your home. Even with an exhaust fan above an indoor stove, there’s still a high chance that heat will wander around, making your home even hotter or causing you to crank up your air conditioner.
Whether you have a gas-powered or electric-powered stove, using either will not only use an excessive amount of energy but will increase your monthly utility bills. When you opt to use your grill in the backyard, not only will this give your appliances a break, but you’ll also be using less energy than what is typically needed.
If you’re trying to eat a little “cleaner,” then that might be tough to do when you’re confined to your stove or oven. However, opting to use your grill will be the better choice since you’ll be using fewer additives to cook your food. Another perk? Any excess of a cooking additive (i.e. butter) will drip from your meal and go directly into the pit of the grill; it won’t be lingering on your food and is a win-win situation all around!
