How to choose between a gas bbq or a coal bbq this summer

We might not always have the weather for it, but when the sun appears, Brit’s flock to their gardens for a good outdoor barbecue. If you are looking to level up your grilling this summer, you might be wondering what barbecue is best – coal barbecues or gas barbecues?

Well, wonder no more as we take a look at the benefits and disadvantages of both barbecues to help you find the perfect match for your cookout.

Coal barbecue

Charcoal, briquettes, and coal all offer the classic smokey flavours that we associate with a good barbecue. Reaching incredible heats, a coal barbecue can grill practically anything with ease. These versatile barbecue setups are a perfect way to cook up some burgers, baked potatoes or steaks.

For a more sophisticated outdoor cooking experience, gas barbecues are the way to go. Using a gas canister to fuel the barbecue flames, gas barbecues offer a much more controlled flame that lets you dial in how you want to cook your food. Perfect for those of us who are looking to carefully cook their barbecued food.
