Gas type

If you think gas is gas, you are wrong. There are different types of gases, each with different flammability. It is not worth to assume that all gases have the same flammability. The fact of the matter is that gases have different quantities, qualities, and benefits. Gases used with BBQ are of two types, but give almost the same amount of heat energy. It is when to use them that matters. One of them, for example, is suited for both winter and summer seasons while the latter is for summertime alone. Reasons being; the one for the summer season alone can heed to freezing in winter hence ruled out for a good reason during winter. The BBQ itself comes with its recommendations as stipulated in their manuals. You better use the type of gas recommended for awesome results.

Caution: gases are flammable, in fact, highly flammable, if you see fire out of the grills, act swiftly and close the lid to limit oxygen if you can do without risking burns on your hands. Remember lids get hot fast, so let it cool down first, I would prefer burnt meat pies to burned hands!


Consider the size of the congregation before placing an order. A picture is worth a thousand words, but this time around, they can be deceiving, often grills appear bigger on the photos than they are. Some grills have a foldable feature to save space if it is limited.

Built in bbq by PARKQUIP are made from cast iron because they are readily available, durable and cheap. The downside is that they rust and hard to clean. Aluminium grills can stand the test of rust, lightweight, good for tables and not heating because they can melt. Chromed steel and nickel-plated steel are good for racks, expensive and durable than any other. Stainless steel is the better option and enjoys all features in aluminium, perfect for grills and BBQ in general.
