In the UK as soon as the sun comes out, we Brits like to fire up the Barbecue. My clients in Hampshire love the BBQ season, late nights entertaining and friends around socialising. The BBQ at the heart of the event, but not all BBQ’s are the same. Do you get one fuelled by charcoal or Gas? Each has its own pros and cons but it’s going to be a personal choice as to which you prefer.
New cylinders (those for which you have no suitable exchange) are subject to a £34.00 hire charge known as the cylinder refill agreement
Why Choose to BBQ with Gas
Pros of Gas BBQ
- Ready Quicker – 10mins to warm up and you’re ready to go.
- Controllable – gas heat remains constant, and can be turned down when you want, giving you confidence the food is properly cooked
- Easy cleaning – gas BBQs have no hot, dirty ashes to clean, the drip trays collect the mess. Turn the heat up for 10 minutes to burn off any juices, and scrape off with a wire brush.
- Cost-effective fuel – One Calor gas cylinder provides enough fuel for up to 8 hours at maximum setting.
Cons of Gas BBQ
- Expense – Although the initial purchase of Gas Barbecue can be more expensive than a charcoal one, but with a little bit of TLC, the BBQ will last for a long time.
At Solent Bottled Gas Supplies we can provide you with 6kg Calor Barbecue Gas cylinders/bottles, all with free delivery to Portsmouth, Fareham, Southampton, Eastleigh, Havant, Cosham, Waterlooville and Winchester.
