7. Tepro Toronto Trolley Grill

It’s got a much smaller price tag, but reviewers are very fond of this BBQ. An American-style charcoal grill with plenty of room for cooking for guests, hanging utensils and resting plates. The two-tier design prevents heat from escaping, so food cooks more evenly.

RRP: £149.99
Where to buy it:
Amazon, Garden Box.
Best feature:
The built-in lid thermometer lets you know when you’re running out of charcoal.

8. Char-Broil Kamander

Unlike the Char-Broil Performance 220B, this is more of a smoker than a BBQ. The insulated steel walls heat up quickly, cooking food on a low heat over a long period of time.

RRP: £699.99
Where to buy it:
The Barbecue Centre
Best feature: 
The way air is funnelled through the bowl helps you keep an accurate eye on temperate.

Your barbecue should last summer after summer if it’s cleaned and looked after. It’s a big, dirty job to do yourself – book a cleaning service in Brighton with Airtasker.

9. Weber Genesis II E-310 3-Burner Gas BBQ

With a high performance grilling system and quality enamel plates, the Weber Genesis has tapered burners for better heat coverage. The grill capacity is big enough to cook for 5-7 people at once.

RRP: £799.99
Where to buy it:
John Lewis, Riverside, BBQ World.
Best feature: 
The famous Weber Flavourizer Bars vaporise all the marinade and fat that drips down, circulating it through the food. The name says it all.

10. LotusGrill XXL

Compact and stylish, the charcoal LotusGrill has battery operated fans. This means minimal smoke, no sparks, no flying ash, and the safest barbecuing experience possible.

RRP: £400
Where to buy it:
Amazon, BBQ World.
Best feature: 
You can grill the food and join the party.
