Portability is an important consideration when shopping for gas BBQs. Many come with accessories included which can be stored inside the BBQ when it’s not in use, and most should come with a sturdy carry handle.
Ease of Setup
If you want to spend more time eating and less time setting up your BBQ and cooking, ease of setup will be important. Look for something that’s easy to ignite and use. A simple, push button ignition should have you cooking within just 10 minutes.
Ease of Storage
Your gas BBQ should be easy to store. Look for a compact BBQ and, if you go for something larger, ensure the legs are collapsible so it doesn’t take up too much room when not in use. As already mentioned, many portable BBQs have space for accessories to be stored inside, which means you can have everything within easy reach.
The larger the BBQ, the heavier it’ll be, but that doesn’t mean to say you can’t find a lightweight BBQ that’ll cook for a large number of people. A lighter BBQ will be more portable and easier to store, so keep this in mind when shopping.
Size of the cooking area is important, especially if you have a large family. If you’re cooking for up to 4 people, a cooking area of around 1800cm squared should be enough. For over 6 people, you’ll want a cooking area of around 2500cm squared.
A caravan trip isn’t a caravan trip without an evening BBQ, and gas BBQs are easy to take on the go and make cooking up perfect sausages and burgers fuss-free. It’s the Char-Broil X200 Grill2Go that tops our list, thanks to the incredibly compact design, smart cooking system and ease of use.
