Gas barbecues

A gas barbecue is effectively a combined gas hob and grill that you can use outside on your patio. Burners, fed by gas, provide a source of instant heat and food is cooked over this heat on the metal grill.

There are three main types of gas barbecue:

  • standard gas barbecue - grill-only models, great for grilling meat, kebabs, fish and vegetables
  • gas barbecues with hoods - you can roast and bake food inside it, in addition to grilling on it
  • gas barbecues with a grill and griddle - a griddle is a handy feature if you like to barbecue lots of different types of food

Not sure whether to go for gas or charcoal? Our expert guide will show you how to buy the best barbecue.
