What do you think of when you hear the word “turbo”? When choosing a particular barbecue grill for your home, you have a wide variety of brands to choose from, including Turbo. But keep in mind that Turbo grills have different features, which require different replacement parts. Here are some features that can impact which parts you’d need for your grill:

1. Burners

Turbo produces grills with a varying number of burners. Obviously, the more burners that a model has the greater the likelihood that you’d require replacement parts for them. But that shouldn’t necessarily prevent you from choosing a model with more burners. When you need to cook for a small army, having more burners will make your task significantly easier.

Another matter to consider is the material used to construct the burners. Some are comprised of stainless steel or cast iron, which will definitely make them more durable. Burners made of inferior materials will have less longevity and will require more frequent replacement. So never sacrifice quality when examining the burners of a Turbo grill.

2. Propane Gas or Natural Gas


There are some differences between natural gas and propane gas, including their cost, energy efficiency, portability, and so on. So you should definitely consider such factors when choosing a Turbo grill. Keep in mind that the fuel that the grill uses will also impact the replacement parts that you might need. But the effectiveness of both gases as a cooking fuel is basically the same. So weigh the pros and cons of the two types of fuels, based on their characteristics.

3. Electronic Ignition

If you’ve ever used a traditional barbecue grill in the past, then you know that igniting it can be quite challenging. On the other hand, an electronic ignition can make the process much easier. Yes, it will require a more complex mechanism that uses more complex parts. But reducing ignition to the press of a button makes the entire process a piece of cake.

4. Grids

This is another key component of a barbecue grill. Like the burners, the material used to produce the grids can impact the likelihood of needing to replace them eventually. While grids made of stainless steel or cast iron will be pricier to replace, they’re a worthwhile investment since they’ll last longer. As with other replacement parts, you’ll need to know the exact model of your Turbo barbecue grill, when ordering a replacement grid.

5. Lid

The lid is one of the most crucial parts of a barbecue grill. Different features will impact the type of replacement parts needed. This includes the material used to produce the handles, a protective coating over the entire lid, and a thermometer built onto the lid. The thermometer will allow you to monitor the temperature of cooking meat underneath the lid. Opening the lid to check the meat’s temperature will decrease the unit’s efficiency.

6. Lava Rock or Ceramic Briquettes

Some grills contain rock grates located directly above their burners. The briquettes contained inside them have two purposes. First, they safeguard the burner from dripping, which could speed up the burners’ corrosion. The briquettes also distribute the burner’s heat more uniformly throughout the entire grill. Briquettes can add a tremendous amount of flavor in your food. The more seasoning you add to the briquettes, the more flavor you’ll add to them. While briquettes will boost the potential cost of buying replacement parts for your barbecue grill, they’re worthwhile investment if you seek more flavorful food.

7. Upper Rack

These racks are located directly above the grill, and are effective when you want to keep your grilled food warm before serving it. If you’re cooking a huge amount of food it will keep everything warm before you finish your grilling. Also, sometimes you’ll need to wait for certain tardy guests to arrive, before serving lunch or dinner. When that happens, the upper rack also comes in handy. You can keep your grilled food warm, without needing to reheat it (and potentially overcook it). Always ensure that there’s enough clearance between an upper rack and the grill below it.

When you need a quality grill in a jiffy, then consider a Turbo grill. Also, learn about where you could buy replacement parts, and which ones you would need for your particular unit.
