The 10 Best barbecues

The perfect way to cook when the sun's out

{1} Jamie Oliver

A four-burner gas number that uses lava rocks to ensure that great barbecued taste. Nifty features include a roasting hood, built-in thermometer and snap-in side trays.

{2} Weber Q220

£299.99, lakeland.co.uk

Weber's Q220 gas barbecue offers perfect performance at the push of a button. Heat distribution is fantastically even and it's easy to clean thanks to the removable drip tray.

This is fantastic value for a family-sized kettle charcoal barbecue. It has a storage tray, large grip handles on the removable lid, wheels and a smooth, circular design.


{4} Cobb

£104.99, lakeland.co.uk

Very efficient, with a handful of briquettes providing up to three hours of cooking time. There's no smoking, charring or fat-dripping flare-ups and you can roast, smoke and cook.

The portable Q100 gas barbecue is quick to start and a dream to clean. The cast-iron cooking grate is porcelain-enamelled and conducts heat evenly across the whole surface.


{6} Firepits UK
