Sausages, halloumi, vegan burgers – just about anything you can stick on the barbecue will taste fab in the great outdoors with good company. We’ve rounded up our best BBQ brands to cover all budgets and bases. And if you’re itching to get grilling with little outlay, you'll find all kinds of new and used BBQs at great prices on Gumtree.
Which is the best BBQ fuel?
There’s much debate among aficionados about gas versus charcoal BBQs, but ultimately it comes down to preference (although classic coals do have the more traditional smoky smell). You can also find electric BBQs nowadays, but as these are still quite new to the market, they tend to be pricier.
Best budget BBQs
If you don’t want to fork out big amounts for a largely summer-based activity, there are some low-budget options that still sizzle:
The unique-looking Landmann Pedestal Round Charcoal BBQ is height-adjustable, portable and budget-friendly at under £50.
The Bodum Fyrkat is small and portable, and looks cute too. It can feed a small group and is great for easy, breezy barbecuing on a budget.
Best compact BBQs
While big grills look swanky, you can’t take them camping or fit them on a compact patio. For that we recommend:
The Weber Smokey Joe Premium Charcoal BBQ – an affordable grill that’s stylish and takes up very little space.
At the opposite end of the price spectrum, the Big Green Egg MiniMax BBQ is super sleek and very in. It gives a premium cooking experience in a compact space.
The George Foreman Indoor/Outdoor Grill is a new breed of BBQ. It’s highly portable but still has a large cooking surface, plus it runs on electric power.
Best alternative BBQs
If you aren’t a fan of coals or gas, now could be the time to dip into more hi-tech electric BBQ cooking. Or, if you already have the best charcoal BBQ, why not branch out?
The Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker Grill is one of the best BBQ smokers out there, perfect for impressing guests with fancy home-smoked meats, cheeses or salmon.
The Ooni Koda portable pizza oven will make your garden the place to be – hello, home-cooked pizzas!
For a knock-out all-rounder, it’s hard to beat the Aquaforno II, though its bells and whistles mean it doesn’t come cheap. It can grill, smoke, bake pizzas and cook rotisserie style. For campers, there’s even an integrated boiler that heats water while you grill.
Once you’ve decided on the best BBQ grill for you on Gumtree, all that remains is to refresh your patio furniture and enjoy those summer evenings in style. For furniture that’s a little more unique, take a look at our DIY upcycling ideas for outdoor and garden furniture.
