space availability & safe consideration?

Before you go to buy a barbecue its very important to consider your available area for your barbecue. As apartment living has become increasingly more common, it is not advisable to purchase a 5-6 Burner BBQ as getting the barbecue up to your floor will be a mission and a half and then the space available on your balcony may not allow for the barbecue to fit comfortably.

 

In an apartment situation a product such as the Beefeater Bugg is perfect! Its small enough to not be a hassle to move around, and its large enough that it can easily cook for 6+ people without having to do multiple cooks. Otherwise if you own or rent a home with a sizeable backyard space availability may not be an issue.

 

Although you may have the space that DOES NOT mean you can have the barbecue in that space. This is for indoor/outdoor areas! It may seem to be a good idea to put a barbecue in your undercover area so you can entertain rain, hail or shine but you MUST HAVE the right ventilation!

- Within a partial enclosure that includes an overhead cover and more than two walls, the following shall apply. (figures 4 and 5)

 

- At least 25% of the total wall area is completely open.

 

- At least 30% of the remaining wall area is open and unrestricted.

 

- In the case of balconies, at least 20% of the total of the side, back and front wall areas shall be and remain open and unrestricted.

Basic features you should
be looking for!

When you are purchasing a barbecue, there are some basic must-haves you should consider.

STAINLEsS
sTEEL

What kind of stainless steel is the barbecue made from? There are 3 main grades of stainless steel: 406, 304 and 316. 406 is cheaper but will rust quickly if not maintained, but 304 can withstand corrosion from most oxidizing acids.

 

That durability makes 304 easy to sanitize, and therefore ideal for kitchen and food applications. 316 is perfect for more marine environments as it lacks iron in the steel making in even more resistant to rusting than 304 grade stainless steel.
