TheWeber Summit gas barbecue is made of steel, with six burners and a rotisserie attachment for grilling whole chickens. The 'flavorizer' bars help give food that traditional smoky taste and theres an integral thermometer. A work of art, but also the most practical barbecue out there.
Price: £1,999

The portable Beer Barrel barbecue is a beautifully simple design, a compact grill with two cooking levels and a handle. Despite its funky appearance, it's a practical choice: its stainless steel shell will last many a summer. Great for impromptu picnics.

Outback
A clever gas-powered machine, the swanky Excelsior 6 Burner has porcelain-coated grills, griddle plate, and 'flavouriser' bars. It looks smart, too, mixing traditional wood with contemporary metal.

Divertimenti
Ready for the catwalk, this long-legged beauty can also cook a mean steak. The grills easily slide out to create a brazier. Complete with a chopping board and ash-collector for easy clean-up, the Deck grill is hot stuff.

Homebase
This chromeplated, cheerful looking piece of equipment can feed up to four people. It includes a protective cover and three-piece tool set, and is also available in red.
