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


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.


{3} Argos


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


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.


{5} Weber Q100


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


The 5mm-thick steel gives you extra radiated heat and will last you years. The half-moon rack allows you to add extra fuel as you're cooking – or remove it to use it as a fire pit.

It looks like a terracotta pot, but it's made from steel and conceals a barbecue grill underneath. Use the herbs you grown to season the food you cook on the grill.

Designed with a removable coal tray, this is a great low-cost option. There's a handle for carrying and two ventilation grills to help to ensure that your food is cooked through.

This charcoal barbecue boasts a chrome-plated cooking grate, enamelled fire bowl and lid, stainless-steel tongs and rubberised lid clips.


{10} La Hacienda


This barbecue doubles up as a pizza oven and is suitable for either burning wood, charcoal or heat logs. And you can use it as a fire pit to keep warm.
