Sunbeam barbeque grills have been manufacturing for decades and over fifteen thousand models exist.

A company with a bright name, Sunbeam manufactured some of the top barbecue grills available. For a century, the American company produced various home appliances, including barbecue grills. Before choosing a particular Sunbeam product repair, make sure to know which replacement parts would be required. Here are some of the most common features and replacement parts:

While Sunbeam produces various full-size grills, they also manufacture a variety of portable grills. Portable grills provide the same taste and health benefits as those from standard grills, but with greater convenience. The portable grills from Sunbeam are "open" grills that you can easily place on a countertop or flat surface indoors. Whether you have a full-size or portable Sunbeam grill, it's crucial to know the model number of the unit when searching for bbq grill replacement parts. Without a model number a barbeque grill parts search can be conducted based on the type of Sunbeam grill replacement parts and measurement of the part.

Obviously, the mechanisms of electric and gas grills differ. That means that the barbecue replacement parts needed also differ. The mechanisms of electric grills will be more complicated as gas grill parts simply “plug-in” to the barbeque while electrical parts are all internal and “plug-in” to wiring.  If you're looking for a grill that delivers convenience, portability and use where fire codes are limiting an electric grill would likely be your best choice. However, this convenience can become an inconvenience if you are grilling where there isn't an electrical outlet in sight.  

Grilling purists may also find that electric grills deviate from the roots of grilling. For them, the essence of grilling is in the use of charcoal and gas. Many grilling enthusiasts couldn't imagine firing up a grill by plugging it in. For them, there's no substitute for installing gas tanks and enjoying the smoky taste of foods grilled over burning charcoal.

Contact grills are another type of grill from Sunbeam, which require replacement parts that differ from other Sunbeam grills. Contact grills are perfect when you want to do some quick grilling for a small number of people. Closing the lid of this type of grill helps to cook the food faster than on a traditional full-size or portable barbecue grill. Yet contact grills still provide the health benefits of grilling, with features such as drip trays to reduce the amount of fat created when operating the contact grills.

Kettle grills include a dome-shaped cover that allows the meat inside to cook quickly yet thoroughly. This is known as "convection" cooking. With kettle grills, the grill constantly circulates heat throughout the grill. This differs from other grills that include a standard lid. With kettle grills, you can be assured that the meat will be cooked evenly. That's not always guaranteed with traditional grills, as the outside of the meat tends to be cooked more than the inside. Various grills from Sunbeam provide this convention cooking benefit via their kettle construction.    

The reversible plate is the perfect feature for portable Sunbeam grill, if you want to do more than grilling. These plates are two plates in one. One side is a grill plate that allows you to grill burgers, kebabs, and other tasty items. Flip over the reversible plate, and then use the flat plate to prepare eggs, pancakes, and so on. The main benefit of the reversible plate is convenience. Whether you're at home or on the road, there's no need to use both a grill and pan. Also, the reversible grill makes cleanup much easier.  

Washing grills that lack a non-stick cooking surface can be difficult and can limit the longevity of the barbeque grill.  If you've ever grilled before then you know that the grilling surface can be a disaster if it doesn't have an effective non-stick coating on it. Grilling surfaces with this feature will cost more, but are definitely worthwhile. Non-stick surfaces will decrease your cleanup time. You won't need to soak the grid for hours, before scrubbing away at stuff sticking to the grid. Owning a grill with this feature will also reduce the need to replace the grid in the future. Ultimately, you'll save a ton of time, money, and energy.  

Choosing a particular type of grill to repair from Sunbeam will require you to secure the right replacement parts for the Sunbeam model BBQ grill when they're needed. So choose a model carefully before knowing which parts you could require.

I'm a grilling purist. It's not grilling if there isn't the taste of open flame and smoke. I add some wood chips and a few pine cones to the coal to add that campfire smoke flavor to the grilling.

Good resource for Sunbeam grills. Not wanting to start a fire under my barbeque, but do you add the pine cones with a gas grill? I've been trying out the Weber wood chips, dampened, to give food a bit of a smokey taste. Haven't gotten up the nerve to try just slivers of wood that would otherwise go in the wood stove for heat.... don't know if they would have the same effect - and never thought of pine cones...

not usually you don't. smoker tray boxes are available that hold the wood within the gas grills so the ashes do not clog the ports on the burners but i think simon was referring to an all natural wood burning barbeque.
