Next year's summer barbeques will come in a range of natural colors such as orange, green and beige, according to a Belgium manufacturer exhibiting at September's garden trade show Spoga Gafa. 


The Belgian barbeque manufacturer Barbecook announced on August 9 that it will launch several new barbeques and barbeque accessories in a range of natural and so called "trendy" colors at this year's Spoga Gafa from September 4-6.

The barbeques being launched by Barbecook include extensions to the brand's charcoal Quickstart and PUUUR range and the gas-powered Brahma line.

The Quickstart range will be available in "sunset orange," "kiwi green" and "champagne beige," while the Brahma range will be available in beige and brown and the Puuur range will be extended to include a wider choice of colors including greens and browns. Barbecook state that these colors are a response to consumer desire for trendy and natural colors in the garden. 

The trend for natural colors in barbeques extends beyond Barbecook's line: manufacturer Nexgrill Industries, for one, is launching its BBQ Gas Grill in a matte cast iron finish.

A preliminary report by the organizers of Spoga Gafa indicates that barbeques are going to be one of the big trends at this year's event, a trend that the organizers attribute to the rising popularity of BBQ evenings during warmer spring weather.
