Bring out the barbecues! Barbecue season is our favourite time of the year here at Haslemere Garden Centre! It’s a chance to kick back and really enjoy your garden in the best way possible – with good food, good weather and good company.
Choosing the perfect barbecue
We stock top of the range barbecues including models by Weber, the world’s premier manufacturer of charcoal and gas grills, and Napoleon, known for sturdy charcoal kettles and portable barbecues. Choosing your barbecue can be daunting, but think through your options and you’ll soon figure out which model is best for you.
For ultimate flexibility, we have portable barbecues - ideal for beach parties and impromptu picnics. But for day-to-day use in the garden, you’ll need something larger, able to take a whole meal’s worth of delicious goodies.
So many people, so many barbecues
Your first decision is whether you prefer to cook on traditional charcoal or easy-to-use gas. Among the models in our garden centre, you’ll find straightforward cooking grills, kettle barbecues and deluxe gas models with up to four burners for maximum convenience.
Next, think about how big you want your barbecue to be. Smaller grills are fine if you’re just feeding yourself and your partner. But for family gatherings and parties you’ll want more space, and perhaps a warming rack to keep food warm once it’s cooked. Hoods or lids give you even more versatility, letting you control the heat so food is cooked right through.
Or perhaps you enjoy more specialist outdoor cooking. We can offer you pizza ovens for that stone-baked flavour, or fire pits - magnets for guests at late-summer parties. And we have a handsome selection of chimineas for a low-key, rustic open fire that doubles as a grill, creating the perfect cosy atmosphere for a twilight meal al fresco. So find your perfect barbecue, upgrade your garden furniture and invite your friends to come over!
As well as the barbecues themselves, we provide all the top-of-the-range accessories you’ll need to become a real grill master. We have a wide range of fuels including charcoal, lighter fluid, lighter cubes and wood chips, as well as regulator kits for gas barbecues. A good set of tongs is a must for any self-respecting barbecue chef, and you’ll also find thermometers, basting brushes, kebab skewers and spatulas, as well as hot plates, burger presses and griddles. Fat drip trays and cleaning kits help make your barbecue easier to care for.
Ask our friendly staff to talk you through the options so you’re sure you have the right barbecue and kit to make your summer go with a swing. Happy grilling!
