Useful gas barbecue features
Here are three of the most useful features to look for when buying a new charcoal barbecue:
- Fat drip tray - this stops your burners from flaring up when fat drips fall onto the grill, and are removable to make your barbecue much easier to clean.
- Side burner - an extra little burner away from the main grill that can be used to heat pots and pans.
- Griddle - a flat cooking surface usually at the side of the grilling area that can be used to sauté, braise or fry your food.
