Why You Should Invest in a Gas BBQ

There’s nothing us Brits love more during the summer than enjoying a BBQ in the sunshine (or during a festival). Sure, our days of solid sunshine can seem far and few between, but when the sun comes out, we love to pull out the BBQ and invite our friends over to take full advantage of the hot weather! So, if like us, you love a good BBQ, why should you invest in a gas option?

Sudden Sunshine!

The weather in the UK is not exactly what we’d like to call predictable. One day it could be near monsoon conditions and the next day, glorious sunshine. With such unpredictability, you may need to get your BBQ fired up at a moments notice. This is not ideal when you are using charcoal.

A gas BBQ gives you the freedom and flexibility to deal with the unpredictable weather rather than having to run out to the shops to top up your charcoal supplies or buy a disposable BBQ.

Time Benefits

Not only can you start cooking almost instantly after turning your gas on, you can also carry on cooking for longer.

Charcoal BBQs take a long time before they are ready for cooking, and you have to make sure that you get everything on the BBQ before the coals start to go cold.

Get Great Results Every Time

Cooking meats on a charcoal BBQ can be something of an art. We’re sure you’ll have experienced the dreaded sausages that are blackened on the outside but still pink on the inside. Thankfully, this can be a thing of the past with a gas BBQ as you have a lot more control over how you cook your food.

Quick and Simple Cleaning

Charcoal BBQs can be an absolute nightmare to clean unless you choose to go for the particularly non-environmentally-friendly disposable option. With a pile of hot, sticky ash to dispose of, it can put a bit of a dampener on your BBQ day!

However, if you opt for a gas BBQ, you can enjoy the benefits of quick and easy cleaning, allowing you to enjoy the rest of your evening instead of scrubbing away at a dirty BBQ.

There are plenty of reasons why a gas BBQ is superior to the charcoal options.
