Everyone loves a BBQ, and this time of year is the perfect point to invest in the right kind of kit for your outdoor space. Whether you prefer a charcoal burner or outdoor gas flame, you’ll find something to suit every need and budget. Here are some of our favourites…
Weber Smokey Joe Premium Charcoal Kettle

This great little model is cost-effective and ideal if you like a bit of DIY in the garden. Simply create your brick structure and place the grill, charcoal shelf and burner into place. It costs just £39.99 from Argos!
