Why stop at barbecuing in your back garden? Bodum makes two portable barbecues – one charcoal and this gas one – both of which come in a range of funky colours, which are great for picnics. This one means you're instantly ready to go, minimising the chance of growling stomachs for hours on end.
No need for singed sausages and tasteless chops with this small, well-made and great-value barbecue that's quick to heat, creates a good airflow for maximum heat, cooks evenly and is easy to move and store. The basin vents can get a bit clogged up with ash.
This has everything you need for eating delicious chargrilled food al fresco at festivals, on the beach or on your roof terrace. The price tag means it's a great gift, too, particularly as you can re-use it.
Landmann has an impressive selection of barbecues this year, including a Tennessee Smoker. But this one – a black, three-part enamelled drum grill with a thermometer – stands out for durability and practicality. Easily catering for 10 people, it also has a warming rack and detachable side table.
This Danish-designed fire bowl can be used as a barbecue, garden heater or even a stylish garden table, if you buy the lid that goes with it. Made from stainless steel, with an aluminium frame, it's built to last and can be used with wood or charcoal.
This iconic and extremely popular charcoal barbecue has a built-in thermometer in the lid, a one-touch cleaning system and an exceptionally hard-wearing lid and bowl. Best of all, the attention to detail means you can grill, roast or bake to perfection.
The perfect barbecue for taking to the park with you along with your football and mat. It runs on charcoal, has a sealable lid for roasting, and has three thin legs, to keep grass scorch marks to a minimum.
