There are different benefits to be had from either type of barbecue but one thing’s for certain – you’ll experience the same distinctive, delicious smoky taste from both. That’s because it’s the fat and juices falling onto the hot coals and the resulting smoke that creates the unique barbecue flavour.

You’ll enjoy that traditional method of cooking. Lumpwood charcoal or charcoal briquettes generate an even cooking temperature, giving your food a distinctive flame-grilled appearance.
Charcoal is easy to light and it’s simple to adjust the heat – just raise or lower the grill. Light at least 40 minutes before you cook to ensure a high temperature.
Kettle barbecues have a lid, so you can braise or roast food. That’s great for cooking meat such as chicken and beef. Some barbecue lids can also be used as windshields.
Side hooks for barbecue tools and shelves or side tables for holding sauces and condiments make entertaining much easier.

Getting rid of ash is pretty straightforward with models that have a one-touch cleaning system and removable ash catcher.
