When choosing the right BBQ for your outside space, there are so many options it is difficult to decide which is the best buy unless you can speak from experience.
Having used and owned various BBQ’s over the years, we can offer honest reviews and provide a complete guide to help you.
How to choose the right one:
If you like to cook straight away, this is the one for you. Just turn the gas on and away you go. These have great features, you can turn up the heat or let your food slow burn. The pros are that these are easy to clean with minimal mess. The cons are that you won’t have that smoky taste that comes with cooking over charcoal.

The pros are it is extremely heavy so it can’t get knocked over. It will be ready for cooking in 30 minutes, it has an adjustable height system, it has an air vent so you can control the heat and it looks good! Food will have that lovely traditional smoky taste. The cons, you need to unscrew the bottom to give is a good clean. For £25, we think it is a bargain!

Smokeless coal is THE coal to use when having a BBQ. The pros are it is considerably cheaper than other smokeless fuels and it is suitable for multi-fuel stoves and open fires.
