Brilliant Barbecues – Part 2 (of 2)

Having showcased our favourite gas barbecues last week, it’s only fitting today we’d unveil our selection of the best charcoal choices. Regardless of whether you opt for a charcoal or gas barbecue this Summer, June is the perfect month for getting outside and enjoying some alfresco dining. 

Although gas barbecues deliver reliability and efficiency, charcoal barbecues provide a distinctive chargrilled flavour due to their glowing embers and smouldering coals. Furthermore, they tend to be the cheaper option and are easier to move from place-to-place. We present our top five choices:

Longley Charcoal Barbecue

£32.00

If you’re after an exceptionally affordable barbecue that doesn’t compromise on quality, this Longley offering is an ideal option. Featuring a grill that can feed up to eight people, a handy shelf for plate storage and hooks for utensils, it’s a great all-rounder for outside entertaining. Click here to buy. 

Weber Smokey Joe Premium Charcoal Barbecue

£69.99

This compact barbecue is an ideal choice if you’re looking for practicality and convenience this Summer.
