With the summer starting to sizzle, you may be thinking of hosting a barbecue. If your thinking of buying a BBQ which do you choose...gas or charcoal?
The range of barbecues to choose from can be daunting, and your buying criteria can rest on a veriety of factors ie how much use it will receive, what fuel you prefer and your budget, in addition to colour, size, running costs etc.
This is my guide to making your decision easier:
Portable Barbecues are lightweight enough to take anywhere, quick to set up and are therefore ideal for days out in the countryside or on the beach.
Masonry Barbecues can be made from a variety of stone and metal including granite and copper and can run on a variety of fuel. They are semi-permanent and can act as garden focal points as well as patio heaters.
Built-in Barbecues offer value for money and adaptability as they can be placed on a variety of
surfaces for example bricks, slabs or concrete. Normally constructed from stainless steel, the
latest technology can offer results comparable to full size barbecues.
This is an indication as to how large the barbecue needs to be for different numbers of people:
up to 1800 sq cms cooking area will cater for 4 people
2000 – 2500 sq cms will be adequate for 6 people
over 2500 sq cms will be required for 8 people
(Warming racks will enable these numbers to be increased)
Hopefully this will help you choose the right model for your own particular needs, although there's undoubtedly plenty to take into consideration before making a decision.
