Looking for the perfect gift for your favorite barbecue chef? BBQs make great gifts, regardless of the time of year. Friedman’s Home Improvement has some ideas on how to select the perfect barbecue equipment.
The price range for BBQs is from $150 to $6000, depending on what you need. Cooking requirements, as well as burners and BTUs, help determine what your price point will be. If you are buying a BBQ for someone you love, you may consider spending more, but make sure you know what is on this person’s wish list before spending a large amount on the wrong BBQ.
Grill size almost always directly affects price. For large parties, you will want a big barbecue. Some larger BBQ models have 800”+ square of cooking area to accommodate a large party.
If you entertain large parties only occasionally, you’re better off selecting a BBQ with a medium-to-large grilling area. 490” square is enough cooking space for about 25 to 30 burgers at once. A smaller grill, of 350” square, will handle 15 burgers at one time, which is plenty for most family gatherings.
BBQs priced from $500 to $1500 often have a rotisserie burner and generally have from 450” to 850” square of total cooking surface. BBQs priced under $500 are likely to have 350” to 600” square of cooking space.
If you want a BBQ that can handle big crowds, you will need plenty of preparation area, side warmers, and warming racks so you can keep the BBQ chef and the crowd happy.
There are additional variables in selecting a BBQ, including BTUs, gas, electric, coal, etc. Come in to Friedman’s Home Improvement and view our wide selection.
