When it comes to outdoor living, Australia has it made. We’ve got the climate, the space and the laid-back lifestyle that makes us all gravitate to the most alluring feature out there: the BBQ. That’s why you should take another look at your BBQ area, what it has got and what it needs.
Let’s start with the BBQ itself. There is an amazing array of gas or coal-fired BBQs, grills and smokers out there to choose from and when you add all the extra accessories, you’ll soon be inviting everyone around.
On Gumtree Australia you’ll find a great range of portablegas BBQs that are ideal for virtually any BBQ area. With portability comes versatility and the Weber BBQ is synonymous with this. You can even grab a nifty little Weber Baby Q and take it camping or on a picnic. Cook up a feast with the Jumbuck or Matador range, from the modest 4-burner Flat Top to a mighty 6-burner that’s practically an outdoor kitchen.
If you’ve got gas plumbed in at your place and you’ve got the ideal spot to make it a permanent feature, a built-innatural gas BBQ is for you. Round out your entertaining area with a bar fridge and you’ll be all set.
In 1952, when George Stephen banged together two half-spheres of metal to create a domed BBQ kettle, the culinary art of roasting stuff over a fire would never be the same again. Today Weber is a global BBQ leader and the iconic charcoal-fired Weber Kettle still reigns supreme. You can diversify your cooking with extra accessories like a griddle, sear plate, pizza stone and wok.
Slow cooking in a charcoalBBQ smoker with flavoured wood chips is the perfect recipe for tender, juicy meat and a delicious smoked flavour. Rib racks are another great addition for the smoker, allowing you to stack up on ribs with ease. A kamado grill like those from Big Green Egg also serve as a smoker and a BBQ.
Charcoal and wood-fired braziers, like those from Fiammetta and Glow, provide a great focal point for your outdoor setting and BBQ area, generating stacks of heat to cosy up to when the temperature drops. Smaller ones in particular often have BBQ grill plates included and some boast metal dome lids as well.
Other BBQ accessories
Check the temperature of your food with a meat thermometer and keep your hands safe with a pair of heat resistant gloves. Up your BBQ game with a rotisserie kit or pulled meat shredder claws. When it’s time to tuck in, you’ll want everyone to do it in style so choose an outdoor dining set that will really enhance your area. Top that off with a touch of understated elegance and practical durability with a Maxwell Williams dinner set and the scene is set.
