The British do love a barbecue, and as soon as the rain stops for the summer, all of us will be making the most of the nicer weather! But one of the most difficult decisions to make can be whether to choose a charcoal barbecue or a gas barbecue. You may even prefer a BBQ bucket! At Oldrids & Downtown we are delighted to bring you a range of the finest brands in BBQ's, so that we can satisfy the needs of even the most hardcore of barbecue enthusiasts!

There is a huge variety of things to consider when purchasing your BBQ. They are all different and each will grill your food differently depending on their size, features and fuel type. But what are these important questions? We have answered a few of these below with our handy guide. Whilst reading, think about these questions: 

  • How often will you be BBQing?
  • How many people will you be cooking for?
  • How much storage space do you have for the winter months when your BBQ is not in use?
  • How do you like your food cooked?

Read on and make your decision...

Charcoal vs Gas BBQs

For a more authentice BBQ experience, opt for charcoal. By lighting the coals and stoking the fire, you will achieve the unique BBQ flavour that you cannot get elsewhere. Charcoal does take more time to heat (between 30-40 minutes) as the embers need to be piping hot before use. Cooking can also take longer as the temperature will fluctuate depending on the position of your coals, however by taking your time cooking you will achieve the delicious flavour of a charcoal barbecue.

A gas BBQ can be slightly more expensive, but offers a more flexible and easier cooking option - making them ideal for novices. Simply hook up your gas BBQ to a standing gas canister, press the ignition and start cooking. Gas BBQs are popular because you are able to control the heat more evenly and most models boast multiple burners, giving you an even cook. However, you do not receive the authentic BBQ flavour that charcoal provides. It is also, arguably, less fun!

What BBQ features should I look out for?

Most barbecues are packed with handy features to make your cooking easier. Features such as a warming rack, shelves & sidetables, collection trays and adjustable grills are fairly common in standard barbecues, as are wheels to easily manoeuvre your BBQ around your outdoor space. Charcoal BBQs may also have loading doors, fireboxes if they are smokers or even a chimney.

If you cook for multiple mouths, make sure you look at how many burners the BBQ has - as the more burners available the more food you can cook for your hungry family or guests!

What accessories do I need?

Throughout our range you will also find useful BBQ utensils and barbecue covers. With our range of BBQ accessories, you can masterfully cook everything from burgers to kebabs in the comfort of your outdoor space, making you a BBQ expert in no time.
