Portable Barbecues UK
Portable barbecues boast a surprising selection of perks. Just think of the potential of a barbecue that you can move and transport easily! You can roll it out whenever you need to, but keep it safely covered and protected from the elements when you're not using it. You can bring it to a friend's house if they're hosting a party and they don't have their own barbecue.
Small Barbecues UK
While most of our Gas BBQs and charcoal barbecues have wheels for easy manoeuvring, many of them are too big to be classified as portable. In order for them to be portable, they've at least got to be small enough to be carried around - or to fit in the car.
Take our Light Portable Tabletop Barbecue, for instance. This portable gas bbq is similar in many ways to a disposable barbecue you could find at a supermarket but differs in the fact that you can use it over and over and over again.
Its clever design features a carry handle for added ease of transportation, and its super compact size means that it is small enough to fit on an apartment balcony, allowing for people who perhaps live in a flat and have no garden to cook up in to still enjoy the quintessential taste of a British summer.
Medium-Sized BBQs UK
While the Tabletop Barbecue is about big enough to feed a couple of people, other barbecues in our portable range are better suited to feed around 3-5 people. They're bigger than the tabletop one and designed to sit on the floor rather than the table like a traditional barbecue, but still feature a compact design and are small enough to pack up and take to other places if necessary.
Many of our medium-sized portable barbecues still sport many of the features that our bigger gas barbecues have, such as a side table, thermometer and air vents. The BillyOh Kentucky is a smoker barbecue with a bottom shelf for storage, stainless steel hooks, a lid to release smoke and an accessible front door for wood pellets and briquettes. Meanwhile, the BillyOh Smoker includes two drums for the option of simultaneous direct and indirect smoking, a side hatch for easy access, two shelves and a chimney to round it all off.
Pizza Oven UK
Looking for something to really impress the neighbours? For a slice of Mediterranean culture in the comfort of your back garden? We have a huge range of Pizza Oven BBQs available, with many featuring in our portable range. They're easy to transport and use, and can easily cook pizza in true Italian fashion! Our 3-in-1 smoker, grill and BBQ is one of our most impressive products due to its multi-functionality.
Gas grills tend to be bigger and heavier than charcoal grills, due to the technology needed to run them, so we only stock a limited number of portable ones. With gas grills, you have more control over the cooking temperature, and the use of evenly-spaced burners allows for equal and consistent heat distribution and a consistent temperature over the entire cooking space. Cooking time is also reduced with a gas grill, due to not needing to let the BBQ warm up like you would with a charcoal one.
Gas barbecues run off gas canisters containing propane or butane. A portable gas barbecue is much less common than a portable charcoal barbecue due to the size necessary to incorporate the multiple burners usually found on a gas barbecue. Gas barbecues are usually designed for the purposes of feeding 5-10 people or more.
Charcoal grills, as opposed to gas ones, don't rely on propane or butane gas as a fuel source, instead of running off the burning of charcoal, which has the capability to get very hot (hence its suitability for cooking). The entire cooking process with a charcoal BBQ is much simpler - you light up the coals using a flammable material like paper or cardboard, slap on your food and away you go.
The back-to-basics nature of a charcoal barbecue appeals to many people, who find it much more rewarding to judge and cook a top-class burger based on its smell, taste, and appearance alone rather than with the help of a thermometer or a timer.
BBQ Covers UK
A barbecue cover is a great way to protect your barbecue from the perils of the British weather if you intend to store it outside, or even from cobwebs and dust build-up if stored in the garage or elsewhere indoors. We also have a great selection of BBQ accessories for you to use.
