Tested by Good Food Magazine all these barbeques are under £100.
Weber Compact 47cm
The smallest and cheapest BBQ in Weber’s charcoal kettle range, but we still managed to fit 12 burgers on it. Simple to cooking results. You can arrange the coals for different heat sources (see below).
Ideal size for a small garden.
Sturdy and easy to assemble, we were impressed with the handy extras: the side table, equipment hooks and lower shelf. A generous ’20 burger’’ — you can cook whole chickens or larger pieces of meat on the main kettle BQ.
Great for a large gathering.
Bar-Be-Quick Smoker & GrillBBQ
This doubles up as a very good entry-level tiered smoker and roaster. It’s not as sturdy as more expensive models, but can retain a constant heat for up to three hours, making it ideal for smoking chickens or pork ribs. You’ll need to add more coals if you want to smoke your food for longer.
Jamie Oliver GO BBQ
A good kettle BBQ in miniature, the lid cleverly clips on the sides and doubles as a carry handle for easy transportation. It sits very low on the ground, which requires more bending over. However, it has heat-proof legs, so you could sit it on a sturdy table.
The perfect PAIR OF TONGS
Good tongs need to grip firmly but gently, so they don’t damage the food yours cooking. A 30 cm handle is long enough to keep your hands safe from heat but short enough to turn food easily, These Oxo Good Grips looking tongs are a firm Test Kitchen favourite. They have a comfortable,lockable, non-slip handle and silicone tips.
