Collection: Charcoal BBQ

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT BARBEQUE

Getting away from the stresses and strains of everyday life allows us all to recharge our batteries.

Planning a barbecue for friends and family is a wonderful escape.

Azuma barbecues are built for those stress-free days when the complications of life are set aside and making a living is not as important as living itself.

Charcoal grilling will be a joy in our most popular oil drum bbq series as it beats any gas bbq in several taste tests we undertake.

Add the right outdoor lighting, a steak sizzling on the bbq, with a warming rack for side dishes and you might never cook indoors again.

 

No power tools are required- all you need is a Philips screwdriver -which isn’t supplied. Our buyers tell us the instructions are clear, and parts are colour coded and labelled.

It takes around half an hour for most people to construct this drum barbecue and it’s reported as being of high quality and sturdy build.

 

The general consensus is that charcoal barbecues tend to make food taste better overall.

Charcoal grilling has a tendency for ‘hotspotting’ which allows meat to be cured or seared which helps seal in the moisture and keep the meat more moist than through gas cooking.

Different fuel types in woods such as hickory or old oak when used in the smoking processes produce an even more enjoyable taste.

Charcoal barbecues are in general, more portable than their gas counterparts (though neither should be moved when in operation or still hot)

Gas barbecues tend to be more expensive and the food they produce compared to a kitchen cooker- so it may be argued not ideally enough of a new experience to warrant outdoor cooking.

Gas grills are often harder to cook with on indirect lower heat, and searing meat is difficult.

 

The grill is manually adjustable, but heatproof gloves would need to be worn when it's hot.

 

To give an indication of its capacity, four racks of spare ribs fit comfortably on the cooking grill. The warming rack is around two-thirds of the size of the grill.

We’re sure this charcoal barbecue’s been used for larger parties but it will comfortably handle cooking for around eight people. Any more and they just need a little patience!
