Lynx Grills: Liquid Propane and Natural Gas Smokers

If you're a passionate lover of low-and-slow barbecue, take a closer look at Lynx grills and their liquid propane and natural gas smokers. These cookers are specialized to heat meats at very low temperatures between 160-350°F like many other smokers. But unlike old-fashioned wood and charcoal smokers, these Lynx grills run on gas. That means they light immediately, and you don't have to spend the afternoon waiting around for your smoker to warm up. Just light, smoke, and serve. The engineers at Lynx give barbecue experts more ways than ever to keep track of their cook with help from their Smart Series of smokers. Each Smart Series device comes equipped with an LCD touchscreen that's easy to use and program, while Wi-Fi capability means you can connect your Lynx Grills model to your smartphone. Download the MyChef app to explore all the new ways to interact with your cooker, whether you're exploring new recipes or uploading your own signature recipes to the MyChef community. When the smoker is on and the food is cooking, the MyChef app helps you to cook that rack of ribs or whole turkey perfectly. You'll receive a notification on your device when it's time to flip or serve your food, and the smoker can even adjust its heat level automatically to stay at your desired temperature. Instead of spending Sunday afternoons stuck beside your smoker (for four hours or more), take your weekends back with help from Lynx grills and their series of smart smokers.

Liquid Propane vs. Natural Gas

While all of these smokers are fueled by gas, there are benefits and drawbacks to different gas fuels and it's important to pick the correct one for your lifestyle. For example, liquid propane grills are popular worldwide thanks to their portability and ease of use. Their main drawback? That liquid propane tank can be hard to measure, and you can run out in the middle of a cooking session. When that happens, you've got to run to the nearest gas station for a refill, jeopardizing your fabulous pulled pork dinner. Others prefer a natural gas cooker that hooks up to your home's natural gas line (and is fueled by the same gas that powers your stove or dryer). This fuel can be cheaper than propane, which could be a big help with multi-hour cooks. And with the line connected to your home, it's virtually impossible to run out of gas. That being said, if your home isn't already equipped with an outdoor natural gas line, you'll need to have it installed by a professional. You can contact your utility provider to learn more.

Freestanding vs. Built-in Models

Once you pick your fuel type, it's time to decide whether your new Lynx Grills smoker should sit atop a grill cart, or be built into an outdoor island. These built-in grills are becoming more and more popular in outdoor kitchens. That being said, installing a built-in smoker doesn't mean you've created a full-fledged outdoor kitchen—these backyard cooking spaces deserve to be decked out with other gear like pizza ovens, compact refrigerators, ice makers, and more. If you consider yourself a budding backyard chef, consider an investment in an outdoor kitchen. But if you know you're only interested in barbecuing (and like having the option of a portable cart) a freestanding smoker might be best for your lifestyle.
