What To Look For in a Gas BBQ
Gas barbecues with a cooking area of around 50 x 50 cm will cater for four to six people. For bigger gatherings, of 10+ people, look for a cooking area of around 70 x 40 cm.
The number of burners is also worth considering. A gas BBQ with one to two burners will feed around four people. Three to six burners are best for bigger ranges – more burners give you flexibility to cook different foods simultaneously. Choose a gas BBQ with an additional side burner if you also want to cook sauces, fry onions, or boil veg.
Many gas BBQs are very heavy; therefore, you should look for a BBQ fitted with wheels and brakes. However, if you’re particularly concerned about lifting and moving the BBQ, I recommend choosing a model fitted with four wheels, as opposed to the standard two. Alternatively, for particularly easy manoeuvrability, you could choose a small BBQ under 15 kg.
Extra features such as side shelves, under-grill storage and a built-in thermometer are worth looking out for, as they make cooking easier.
There are some gas barbecues that make tidying up more straight-forward as well. If you don’t want to mess around after dinner, you might want to look for a BBQ with dishwasher-friendly grills. Being able to simply load up the dishwasher after a BBQ can save a lot of effort. Not all grills are dishwasher friendly though, so this is always worth checking with the manufacturer.
When it comes to the best gas barbecue, I’ve chosen the Char Broil Gas2Coal Hybrid Grill as my top choice. This hybrid gas BBQ has all the benefits of a gas grill, whilst also allowing you the option to cook with charcoal when you want to. It offers the best of both worlds and can cook for up to 10 people. This makes it a great choice for get-togethers as well!
