Is a gas or charcoal barbecue better?
Using a gas barbecue and a charcoal barbecue will give you two very different cooking experiences. Gas barbecues are often easier to use – they’re quick to light, include cooker hoods, griddles and side burners, as well as dials to control the temperature. But they are often more expensive. Charcoal barbecues are better for giving a smoky, chargrilled flavour to your food thanks to the higher maximum temperature. Yet, they are much harder to clean and can also be tricky to light.
Which barbecue models are the best?
Barbecues come in all shapes and sizes, but there are a select few sitting head and shoulders above the rest in terms of value for money and performance. The Gas2Coal Hybrid Grill is a great option for parties where keeping a constant heat can be a worry. Barbecue perfectionists often go for Weber models, particularly the Weber Master-Touch GBS Premium. And if charcoal barbecuing is more up your street, the Napolean Pro 22 will be ideal.
What gas is used for barbecues and where can you buy it?
Your gas barbecue will need either propane (a red or green canister) or butane (a blue canister), although most gas barbecues use propane. You can buy both propane gas and butane gas canisters and refills at some DIY stores, garden centres, petrol stations and specialist retailers. Often, you will need to pay a £30 deposit to rent a canister and the fuel is likely to cost you around £30 also. To get your money refunded, return the canister once you’re finished.
