Halon is also very much used in commercial kitchens, but expensive to recharge.

But considering all (like price $$$)...I'd advise EVERYONE to buy and use Dry Chem (class B) extinguishers. Once I worked with and saw how superior they were to all other methods in putting out diesel fuel and jet fuel fires in a training pit, there was NO QUESTION in my mind.
You use JET FUEL for your BBQ!?!?!?! You must be able to cook a brisket in like 5 minutes.
