However, the 3 burner gas barbecue does have a distinct advantage over the 2 burner models.

Built-in versatility

The luxury of having a 3 burner gas barbecue is that you can cook a lot of food at any one time but you can also turn one burner off and use that area to keep food hot. Cooking food on a barbecue often requires an area for the cooked food to be kept until required, and a 3 burner model is ideal for this.

The 3 burner models, at around 130 cm wide, do not look out of place in smaller gardens and are big enough to cope with the demands of a hungry family and their friends. Should colour be a deciding factor, you can choose from a combination of colours including grey, black, green and brown. You also have the option of all steel or a mix of wood and steel.

A very popular model

Whichever of the 3 burner gas barbecue models you choose, you’ll be delighted with the strong yet lightweight construction and the ease of use. Most 3 burner barbecues will come as a self-assembly kit but don’t let that put you off. They are very easy to assemble for anyone with just the very basic knowledge of mechanics. Instructions are simple to follow, and you only have to do it once.

Also, a 24 month guarantee usually comes as standard with most models in this range. The 3 burner gas BBQ is proving to be a very popular model for families of all sizes with gardens big and small.
