Looking for the best BBQ in Australia but wondering, what is the best BBQ to buy? This Barbeque Buying Guide will help you work out which kind of BBQ is the best barbecue to buy for your needs, and then you can check out all the best BBQ brands in Australia online or in store at The Good Guys.
Want to buy the best gas BBQ in Australia, the best natural gas BBQ, best portable gas BBQ, best charcoal BBQ in Australia, or best small BBQ in Australia? Before you start shopping, it's worth weighing up the pros and cons of different types of BBQs.
The BBQ you buy needs to be the right size for your needs. It's not worth buying a big beast of a barbeque if you'll only use to feed a few people every now and then because bigger BBQs cost more to buy, take up more space and take longer to clean. On the other hand, if you'll be doing quite a few BBQ parties you'll regret buying a BBQ that's too small because you'll be stuck at the barbie for ages cooking batch after batch, and the food won't be ready at the same time.
When it comes to size, you need to consider two things:
For 1 - 10 people
Consider a portable LPG, natural gas, or electric BBQ with 1-3 burners or cooking zones.
For 11 - 14 people
Consider an electric, LPG or natural gas BBQ that's either freestanding or built-in, with 3-4 burners.
For 15+ people
Consider a freestanding or built-in electric, LPG or natural gas BBQ with 4+ burners.
If you're going for a gas BBQ, the size of the gas bottle you'll need depends on:
What kind of features should your BBQ have? That depends on what's important to you and what you want to cook.
When it comes to the cooking surface, think about the following factors:
Some BBQs have special cooking features like:
Choosing a barbeque with a hood means you can:
Make sure you think about whether the hood:
How easy the BBQ is to maintain and how long it will last comes down to the materials the exterior, grill, hotplate and burners are made from.
Gas BBQs with a push-button or push-and-twist control knob ignition generate a spark and automatically ignite the gas burners so firing up the BBQ is quick and easy.
If a BBQ has more than one gas burner, check whether all the burners are controlled by one control knob, or if each burner has an independent control so you can cook different things on different areas at different temperatures.
To get the most out of your barbeque, think about adding these accessories to your BBQ:

Every BBQ is different, and depending on the type you go for, the best way to get great grilling, baking and roasting results is to follow the instructions that come with your BBQ. There are very different steps for how to start a charcoal BBQ and how to use a charcoal BBQ, compared to how to start and use gas and electric barbeques. Your BBQ user manual should also tell you whether converting your BBQ to natural gas is possible, and if not you can contact the manufacturer.
A few things to always remember:
Cleaning your BBQ after every cook up is essential for hygiene and safety reasons, and you should also give it an extra thorough clean a couple of times a year.
Oil residue goes bad in hot weather which can make food taste off, and if you don't drain and clean off all the oil and fat that's dripped into your BBQ on a regular basis you could accidentally set the BBQ on fire.
Always follow the manufacturer's instructions for how to clean a BBQ, which may tell you to:
If you don't follow the manufacturer's cleaning and maintenance instructions for how to clean a BBQ plate it can be dangerous. Don't risk guessing; make sure you know how to clean a BBQ hot plate the right way, otherwise you can damage your barbeque and it might not last you as long.
It's really important to maintain your BBQ properly so it's safe.
