3 Burner Barbecues

Making a case for gas against charcoal is not a difficult task but when it comes to selecting a gas barbecue, which one is best? With several models to choose from, it all comes down to functionality and budget. Most 3 burner gas barbecues will come complete with side shelves and even side burners, and all will have stainless steel burners. You can expect a cast iron grill plate and griddle, Piezo ignition and a lower storage cabinet or shelf with most models. A powder coated or stainless steel hood are standard features and all are generally easily transportable. 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.
