Top barbecue deals to get you chilling and grilling this summer

21 May 16

Even though it’s appearance may be fleeting the sun does make an appearance! So, it pays to be prepared. As hundreds may have flocked to the shops recently to buy BBQ’s at the first glimpse of the sun it pays to shop around and pick one up to have ready for the next time the sun hits.


The type of BBQ you want depends on various factors such as how often you intend to use it, how many people you want to cook for when you use it and whether you want a portable or built in one. Here are some of the best deals to get you grilling this summer:


Planning a gathering but don’t want to spend a fortune? Opt for this Party Charcoal BBQ from Homebase which at under £60 will give you enough space to cook for plenty of people and with two shelves of cook space gives you enough room to separate out meats and veggies for that hot summer’s’ day.



Going camping or just looking for something to use at the weekend without spending too much? This starter kit from Argos is under £25 and even comes with some tools to help you cook.Pop in some charcoal, light the coals and get cooking. This BBQ is perfect for smaller groups of people who just want to cook in the sunshine.



Want something slightly more durable in case the weather holds up for more than one weekend? Check out this Boston half oil drum charcoal BBQ which retails at under £50. Cook your food to perfection with a roasting lid to cook everything evenly and prevent flare ups, a warming rack to help keep excess food warm before serving and an air vent to enable you to control air flow.



Opting for a gas powered BBQ doesn’t always have to be expensive, but get the best of both worlds with Landmann Grillchef from Tesco which retails at just £100. The great thing about this is it isn’t bulky or too heavy so if the heavens open like they tend to in the UK you can move your cooking location without much of an issue.



If you want the king of all outdoor BBQ’s then don’t scrimp, go for a premium 4 burner gas BBQ with a side burner. This BBQ from Argos is still under £200 but is perfect for all those summer parties, family barbeques and gatherings and will have all the neighbours jealous. There is a porcelain cooking grill, a side burner for smaller dishes and a warming rack to ensure food stays warm. There’s also a condiment rack and bottom shelf to keep all those BBQ essentials ready to hand.
