You’re looking for…
You’ve been at work all week and now it’s the weekend, you want to relax, not spend all night cooking. What you need is an electric barbecue grill as it’s the easiest and by far the most convenient of all. However, the more convenient a grill is, the less smoky barbecue flavour you’re likely to get.
Authentic Taste
A real barbecue is all about the smoky, fiery flavour; and a little bit of burnt burger never hurt anyone, right? Choose charcoal or gas to render the succulent, smoky, authentic taste of a barbecue. After all, there’s no smoke without fire.
Safety First
When choosing which kind of barbecue is right for you, you also have to consider where it is going to sit. If you have virtually no garden or only a small patio area at the back of the house, a charcoal grill is off limits. Avoid gas barbecues too as they produce flare-ups and should be kept away from buildings to avoid fires. Electric barbecues however, produce no flare-ups and are perfectly safe in small areas.
Hopefully the above points will help you to decide which type of barbecue is the best one for you and your family. Now you just need to scour our range of barbecues – whilst you’re there, get your hands on some nifty barbecue cooking utensils too.
