BRITS can celebrate the warmer weather with a barbecue, with prices starting at £2 for a disposable one.
If you’re thinking of eating al fresco this weekend when England is supposed to be hotter than Rome, we’ve got you covered with the cheapest barbecues on the market.
Remember though, households in England are banned from mixing under the current coronavirus lockdown restrictions.
But from March 29, the rule of six will be reintroduced and small gatherings in private gardens will be given the green light under plans to unlock the country.
We’ve rounded up the best barbecues available to buy on the high street so you’re ready to unite with friends and family again.
Here’s what we found for the best disposable, charcoal, gas and dual fuel barbecues to sizzel up your summer.
Disposable BBQs – From £2
Disposable BBQs are for one-day use only, and can be chucked in the bin once the cooking’s finished.
They’re made from lightweight aluminium material and use charcoal for the heat source.
