Disposable barbeque trays

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

Disposable barbeque trays have several advantages over other types of barbeques.

Firstly they're cheap! They are the most affordable type of barbeque on the market. You can buy them from as little as a pound at some shops, but supermarkets usually do an own brand version for a couple of quid.

Until this year they were only available in one size but now there is a party size disposable tray offering you all the conveniences but on a larger scale! These are dearer but probably less hassle than having two separate ones on the go.

They are lightweight and easy to bring home from the supermarket. A disposable barbeque contains everything you need to have a fun barbeque with virtually no cleaning up afterwards. You can pack them in a bag easily to take to the beach or on a picnic with you.

They are simple to light! A match is lit and applied to a corner of the top cover inside the grill. This burns and lights the charcoal. It's quite amazing to watch something as simple as one match get it going very easily.

They take about 20 minutes to get going so you can cook on them - this is about the same as any standard charcoal barbeque.

They have a close grill pattern which makes it easy to grill smaller items such as tomatoes without any risk of food falling through on to the charcoal.

They give a good hours use too. If you shake them using tongs or similar and concentrate the charcoal at one end you can continue to cook for a while longer but obviously with reduced surface area.

Cleaning up involves packing away any tools you bought with you to the barbeque and waiting until the barbeque is cool to throw it away. As it's disposable you can tip water into it without risk of damaging it. Don't do this with any other sort of barbeque and beware as steam could be generated which could scold.

For people who want only an occasional barbeque they are ideal. You can buy them and keep them safely at home - for years if needs be! But as we think barbequing is such fun we don't think you should leave it that long!

Gas barbeques are easy to light using a simple ignition system. They use bottled gas which is available at many local garages. They offer you a convenient and easy form of cooking barbequed food outside at home.
This Dakota barbeque is a two ring simple barbeque that offers you everything you need to cook lots of food easily and simply, using controllable gas.
The pack contains everything you need to get started apart from the gas which you can source locally. It has the barbeque, a domed hood, grill, wheeled base and the hose and regulator you need for the gas supply.
It has a smart looking chrome plated grill which has a great modern look to it.
It has two burners which is more than enough for a family or even a small party. You will find that it is easy to put away too as it's on wheels which makes it easy to move but stable during use as you have to lift up one end to wheel it. This makes it convenient for bringing out each time you want a barbeque or you could store it under a cover in the garden.
ignition on barbequeThe barbeque lights easily due to the ignition system built in. The burners are controllable so you can lower or increase the heat as you need. This means you can turn down the heat to avoid burning food. It is then easy to cook different types of food on each burner!
The barbeque is 66cm wide, 51.5 deep and stands just over 1m tall! This is a good height food cooking at and is much better than crouching round a disposable or small barbeque on the floor.

Which barbeque to get?

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

When deciding which barbeque to get there are several questions you need to consider. Firstly how often are you likely to have a barbeque? Will it be regular or accessional? How much budget do you have available to spend? How many people are you going to be regularly barbequing for? Do you have a preference as to gas or charcoal? Are you a gadget fan?

Your budget is the most important thing to consider when buying a barbeque. Don't overstretch yourself financially! A barbeque is supposed to be fun - not a financial burden!

If you are only planning a barbeque as a one off then you need to make a sensible purchase and buy disposable barbeque trays. They're available almost everywhere it seems during the summer months. They vary in size and there are some larger models available. As they're quite cheap and small they are easy to stock up in advance on the off chance you'll have a barbeque soon! They're also light to carry if you're going to the beach or for a day out.

There are now portable gas grill models available - which has been launched by Marco Pierre White and HeavenChef.

The smaller models of barbeques are normally charcoal though. This makes them easy to store and a sack of charcoal can be easily store in a shed or the garage. They are easy to use once they're lit and you follow some basic principals of waiting until the coals are white hot before you start cooking, and you push new charcoal in from the edge to keep it going longer.

Gas barbeques are much bigger and require storing inside a shed during the winter months. They take up quite a lot of room but mean you can cook for more people more easily. Some have additional gadgets like side burners for cooking onions on or warming up sauces. A luxury model with several burners, rotisserie and smoke hood is likely to cost more than a simpler model!

Built barbeques are much more sturdy than anything else - so you have to pick the location in your garden carefully for one. They are mostly likely to be charcoal run but it will only be a matter of time before someone invents a way of adding a gas canister to one!

Which ever barbeque your budget allows you will really enjoy using your barbeque and entertaining the family outdoors!
