A really funky kettle-style barbecue with an aluminium side table and a detachable liner to catch ash. This grill strikes the perfect balance between form and function.
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.
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.
Sleek, sturdy and excellent value for money, the Edmonton half-barrel grill boasts a folding side shelf and adjustable cooking heights. With two separate cooking compartments, vegetarians needn?t worry about meat touching their food.
A sexy masterpiece that could double as a garden ornament. The Eva Solo charcoal grill features a collapsible support that allows it to stand on uneven surfaces.
The Cobb is incredibly fuel-efficient. Only a handful of briquettes allows for three hours of cooking. Add flavour to meat by filling the moat with wine or beer.
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.
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.
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.
With the good weather on the way, hopefully, it's time to get in the summer mood with this range of barbecues
