This does go down to personal choice, and Gas Barbecues have some advantages over Charcoal Barbecues, just as much as Charcoal BBQs have other advantages over Gas BBQs!
Here are the advantages of charcoal BBQs:
The advantages of gas BBQs are listed here:
Our firepit garden furniture sets can be used for cooking, assuming the correct cooking griddle is included. LG Outdoor's firepit sets which have square cooking grids can use their griddle and stand for teppanyaki cooking. That means that you can cook as you relax, creating an immersive cooking experience.
A barbecue can mean either a meal or social gathering round an outdoor cooking device, such as an open fire, for the enjoyment of meat, fish or other food.
Simply put, a meal cooked outside.
This depends on the range of BBQ you own, but for the most part yes. The issue with leaving a lot of BBQs outside is that, thanks to the rough winter elements (wind, rain, lower temperatures) your investment may discolour, become damaged or rust, in particular around the fittings/screws.
If you do decide to keep a barbecue outside ensure you place a suitable cover over the top of it.
This isn't a straight forward question, as depending on the make and model of your BBQ the manner in which it can be cleaned may be different.
For example, on a Grillstream Gas BBQ you'll find that the cooking area is tilted. This allows for the fat to move towards the bottom of the tray, but then splits off into a fat cup, resulting in less cleaning. For when it does require a clean however, you first turn the burners on, to burn off any fat residue that has become stuck, before using a cleaning brush to move up and down the grill on the BBQ to remove any dirt and fat residue.
If price is your key drive, then on the whole charcoal barbecues are cheaper, and can ensure further savings. Another key advantage is the smokey taste which is given to your food on a charcoal BBQ, as your meat and veg infuses with the smoke burnt from the charcoal.
However, charcoal barbecues can be more of a pain to light, and require lighter fluid or similar heating accessories. Compared to gas barbecues, they are slower to heat up which essentially means a longer cooking time. Gas BBQs can turn on at the flick of a switch, and there's no need to keep refueling as often as much as you would with charcoal.
