Summer is here, and the hunt for the best BBQs is on! Finding the perfect grill can take your outdoor cooking to the next level. Whether you’re a seasoned grill master or a beginner, use this guide to find the best one for your needs.
Barbecuing: A Wide Range of BBQs
BBQs have been a staple of summer for decades. With the rise of outdoor cooking, the market has exploded with different types of grills. Today, you’ll find charcoal to gas models and portable to built-in units. Electric smokers and BBQ pizza ovens have also dominated the BBQ world.
There are plenty of choices for those looking to cook outdoors and want to enjoy the warmer months. But which one is right for you?
1. Charcoal BBQs
Charcoal BBQs use charcoal as the primary fuel source. The best part? The savoury aroma that the meat absorbs gives off that unmistakable smokey flavour.
This type of grill comes in a variety of sizes and styles. If you want that authentic flavour for your grilled foods, this makes it a suitable companion. But keep in mind that a charcoal model requires more preparation and clean-up than a gas grill.
The BillyOh Kettle is a classic charcoal grill with a stylish dome shape design. This space-saving BBQ allows you to easily cook a range of foods in its large cooking area.
Get optimal temperature control with the help of the heat gauge on the lid. The ash-catching tray under the main charcoal also helps keep ash away from the lawn and patio.
2. Gas BBQs
A gas barbecue uses natural or propane gas as fuel to cook food. This type of grill offers convenience and ease of use; turn the gas on and you’re ready to cook! Even better, the temperature can be easily controlled with the turn of a knob, unlike a charcoal grill. Available numbers of gas burners are 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.
Gas BBQs are also usually big enough to feed the whole family. They make an excellent upgrade choice, too, if you own a charcoal unit at the moment. If you want a quick and efficient way to prepare delicious meals for family and friends, go for a gas barbecue!
If you want something a bit more substantial, then Tennessee is sure to fit the bill. This gas BBQ model is a folding phenomenon! Thanks to its fold-down feature, it never takes up more space than it needs to. Plus, the trolley/stand gives you all the advantages of a large BBQ but with great portability.
Manage your cooking temperature with the in-built thermometer on the lid. This gives the inside a consistent temperature that you can keep tabs on. You can also use either butane or propane gas as the fuel source.
3. Smoker grills
A smoker grill is specifically designed for smoking meats alongside the heat source. This makes adjusting heat and replenishing the fuel much easier.
Smokers are usually made of metal and have a firebox separated from the cooking chamber. They use wood, charcoal, or gas for indirect cooking, producing a smoky and tender texture. Some have additional features, such as multiple cooking racks and built-in thermometers.
If you’re among the BBQ enthusiasts and professional chefs alike, this one’s for you!
One of our most versatile BBQs, the BillyOh Offset smoker is the perfect addition to any garden space. The pit barrel design features a cooking chamber that’s both aesthetic and practical. It offers two large spaces for direct or indirect smoking. Plus, an ample room for grilling in the larger barrel.
The adjustable vent allows you to adjust smoke levels and, ultimately, cooking times. Meanwhile, the side and low wire shelf give you both preparation and cooking space. And thanks to the small side hatch, you can move the wood or coals in the side barrel with convenience.
4. BBQ pizza ovens
A BBQ pizza oven is a piece of equipment that can be added and removed from your outdoor barbecue. As the name suggests, it’s designed specifically for making pizza on a grill.
Pizza ovens are made of durable materials such as stainless steel or ceramic. They often feature a unique design that allows for even heat distribution. Some even include adjustable vents and a removable stone or grilling surface.
If you want to enjoy the taste and texture of wood-fired pizza, investing in a pizza oven is the right thing to do. And say goodbye to the expense and hassle of building a traditional brick oven!
With the multi-fuel option, you can choose your fuel: charcoal, firewood or pellets. With this, you can cook authentic large 13” pizzas in just 90-120 seconds; how cool is that?
Plus, cleaning is straightforward, with the exterior only requiring a wipe-down. It’s a must-have for all the pizza lovers!
Products like our Mini BBQ Pizza Oven get the job done much faster and ensure everyone can all tuck in and enjoy too! The portable size is what really makes this a winner, meaning it doesn’t just have to be stuck in one place forever. Any time you want to move it to a new location, you can do so with ease. It also comes with a pizza stone that lets the pizza cook perfectly inside the oven.
The key to finding the best BBQ is to consider your specific needs and preferences. Factors such as size, fuel type, cooking capacity, and budget should be taken into account. Comparing different models can also help you make an informed decision.
BillyOh offers a variety of BBQs, including gas, charcoal, and even hybrid grills. So there’s something for every grilling enthusiast here! We hope this guide has helped you get the perfect grill for outdoor cooking.
