In the UK as soon as the sun comes out, we Brits like to fire up the Barbecue. My clients in Hampshire love the BBQ season, late nights entertaining and friends round socialising. The BBQ at the heart of the event, but not all BBQ’s are the same. Do you get one fuelled by charcoal or Gas? Each has its own pros and cons but it’s going to be a personal choice as to which you prefer.

Ready Quicker – 10mins to warm up and you’re ready go.
Controllable - gas heat remains constant, and can be turned down when you want, giving you confidence the food is properly cooked
Easy cleaning - gas BBQs have no hot, dirty ashes to clean, the drip trays collect the mess. Turn the heat up for 10 minutes to burn off any juices, and scrape off with a wire brush.
Cost effective fuel – One Calor gas cylinder provides enough fuel for up to 8 hours at maximum setting.
Expense - Although the initial purchase of Gas Barbecue can be more expensive than a charcoal one, but with a little bit of TLC the BBQ will last for a long time.
The UK weather may not be the most reliable, but you can keep your Barbecue going on long into the night with a patio heater, but guess what? So make sure you've got enough patio gas so your guests are kept all snuggly. Free delivery in Hampshire
