Weber Summit S760 Grill Centre with Social Area
To kick things off, here’s something a bit special. The Weber Summit S760 (pictured) isn’t so much a BBQ as a food-cooking-fortress. It’s massive, and has everything any BBQ host could ever need for a BBQ party of the century. You get a Sear Station, smoker box and burner, side burner, and a rotisserie burner for spit-roast cooking. The ‘social area’ provides work surfaces, an ice bin, a concealed rubbish bin, and room for a gas tank. You won’t get much change from £6k, but if you want the best…
Grand Hall Xenon 227 Black 5 Burner Gas Barbecue
Grand Hall BBQs come with some pedigree. The Grand Hall Xenon 227 lives up to it, with five burners, side burners, and hooded cooking that effectively transforms your BBQ grill into an oven for cooking bigger chunks of meat. A handy side burner is great for cooking small foodstuffs and sides such as onions and chilies. It’s a tasty multitasking master.
Looking like it’s about ready to take off, the Napoleon PRO600RSIB hails from a long line of awesome Napoleon gas barbecues. It has a total of six burners, a side burner, a generously proportioned warming rack, and an integrated ice bucket and cutting board. The Napoleon PRO600RSIB uses infrared cooking technology that use less gas, and decrease cooking time.
