Which barbecue do I choose?

Nothing is more fun than enjoying the outdoors on sunny days and lighting up the barbecue. When choosing a barbecue, take into account not only your BBQ skills but also whether garden parties are often organised. An electric table barbecue is quick and easy for a small family, but not advisable when there are many guests at the table. You can opt for a full option pimped out chromed barbecue but the classic ball barbecue is relatively cheap. Below we list the advantages and disadvantages of each type of BBQ so that you can make a well-considered choice! 

Our top picks 👇

1. Gas

✔️ Less smoke than charcoal

✔️ Heats up faster than charcoal

✔️ Temperature can be set accurately

❌ Gas cylinder takes up space

Some tips for a clean BBQ! 🧽

  • Grease well

Grease the grid with oil before grilling. This prevents food residues from sticking. That saves you a lot of scrubbing!

  • Use an aluminium collection tray

This method is very suitable for a charcoal barbecue. Place an aluminium tray on the charcoal grid and grill your dish on the grid above it. The juices and fats which are released during grilling will then fall into the tray and not onto your barbecue.

  • Warm cleaning

Clean the charcoal and gas barbecue while the grid is still hot. As soon as the grid cools down, the food remains will start to crumble.

  • Scrubbing thoroughly

Never use a steel brush to clean the grid as it is too hard and damages the surface. A stainless steel cleaning brush is ideal.
