Barbeque Buying Options
An Australian icon, the barbeque stands proudly in many an Aussie backyard. As the meeting place for serious chats regarding the viability of the one-flip or multiple-flip method, this is where the magic happens. This is where cooking becomes a team event. But what happens when its time for anupgrade? While BBQs are made to stand the test of time, they will eventually need to be replaced. Or when the family BBQ no longer feeds the family, its inevitably time to upgrade to a larger model.
Buying a Barbeque
When it comes to buying a BBQ, there are many things to think about. One of the most obvious factors to consider is size. The BBQ has to be big enough to cook everything that needs to be cooked, but it also needs to fit the space available. The entertaining area could be restricted to a balcony of an apartment, or the BBQ may have to fit a specially made BBQ pit. There are some great portable BBQ options - which can be perfect for camping and caravanning trips - as well as small and large BBQs for the backyard.
A 6 burner barbeque is a common choice, as it provides plenty of space for cooking, while not taking up heaps of room within the backyard setting. With this type of BBQ, look at the grill and hotplate ratio. Some BBQs have larger grills, while some have larger hotplates, so make sure this ratio works for the type of barbequing required. Look at the hood, and consider a double-skin hood if that is important, and check the controls, making sure they have good grip and are easy to read. It can also be a good idea to check out additional features, such as a side burner or a rotisserie, or to check out alternatives, like electric BBQs.
