There’s no better get together than a barbeque with family and friends, and if you can position your barbeque right, it could easily become a year-round appliance where brisket, sausages, burgers and BBQ chicken are always on the menu.
Here at Garden Trends, you’ll discover a wide variety of BBQs that we have chosen because they are brilliant to use and cook with. From compact charcoal barbeques to multi-range gas barbeques, we have everything you need right here.
Gas barbeques are extremely convenient because you don’t need to use charcoal. They have improved considerably in recent years and it is now near impossible to tell the difference between food that has been cooked with charcoal and food that has been cooked with gas – you just need a smoke box for the smoky taste!
We have an unbeatable range of gas powered BBQs in a variety of different sizes. Whether you need something on wheels so you can move it around or have a designated space for a large multi-range gas BBQ, we have something for all budgets.
A charcoal BBQ is perfect if you want a low maintenance, cheap to run and easy to use cooking tool that gets the job done. This is the quintessential barbeque, with an intense smoke and glowing red embers from the charcoal briquettes.
Charcoal BBQs tend to be cheaper than gas barbeques because they are basically a metal drum with a grill. However, they can have various grilling levels and adjustable racks to bring convenience to cooking different meats. They are also available in a wider range of sizes, from portable camping size to family size.
A smoker lets you cook at low temperatures in a controlled, smoky environment. It’s how the best brisket and pulled pork is cooked. Traditional smokers burn wood pellets, but some also burn charcoal or a combination of both.
Smokers are relatively inexpensive for what they are, yet they are perhaps the most desired of all outdoor cooking appliances. Because they burn wood pellets, they cook at lower temperatures than charcoal barbeques and give food a smokier flavour than a gas BBQ. We have a wide range of smokers to choose from to suit all budgets.
How to choose the right BBQ
When it comes to choosing the right barbeque, pay attention to cooking surface area. You will need plenty of cooking space if you’re feeding a whole family.
Gas BBQs are a good middle ground and can offer the benefits of charcoal and smokers, because they have gas temperature regulation, allowing high and low heats. You would just add a smoke box for the smoky flavour.
If you plan on using your BBQ in the summer, you can’t go wrong with a charcoal BBQ – just keep in mind you’ll need plenty of charcoal and wood pellets.
