Why is it called barbecue?

Let’s get back to basics, the word barbecue comes from the word barbacoa used by the indigenous people of North and South America. It is a Spanish word used by the Taínos who lived in Hispaniola, Jamaica, and Cuba. Barbacoa was used to describe the slow cooking of meat over an open flame!

What are the best barbecue appliances for outdoor living?

When it comes to outdoor living and making the most of your space, having the right appliances can enhance your experience and make your time spent outdoors even more enjoyable.

Whether it be a small barbecue to enjoy the warm afternoons and evenings, a full outdoor kitchen, or just a beautiful outdoor area set up for cozy evenings under the stars, we’ve got the ultimate list of how to create a beautiful outdoor living space to enjoy.

Outdoor Kitchen

A well-equipped outdoor kitchen is perfect for any outdoor living space. It allows you to prepare delicious meals while enjoying the pleasant climate. Invest in a high-quality grill, a built-in oven, a sink, and a countertop for a complete outdoor cooking experience!

Outdoor fridge

Keep your beers cool and your food fresh with an outdoor fridge. Opt for a model that is specifically designed for outdoor use, with weatherproof and rust-resistant features.


Nothing says summer and sun like the smell of a barbecue, and no outdoor living space is complete without one! With plenty of models to suit all budgets and lifestyles, a barbecue is the perfect way to embrace the Mediterranean lifestyle by cooking up some fresh fish or meats on the grill!

Outdoor pizza oven

Imagine baking your own authentic pizzas with a crispy crust and melty cheese while basking in the warm Spanish sun. Sounds perfect, doesn’t it?!

Outdoor bar

Create a functional simple bar (or go extravagant if that’s more your style), to entertain guests or enjoy a quiet tipple in the evenings. You could even install a built-in bar with a sink, a refrigerator, and a blender for mixing refreshing cocktails.

Which type of barbecue is best for my outdoor space?

The barbecue, a beloved culinary tradition, showcases diverse styles worldwide and the variety of barbecue types ensures a flavourful journey for food enthusiasts.

Gas barbecues

Due to their functionality, cleanliness, and efficiency, gas barbecues are the most recommended and most popular option. Any garden, patio, terrace, and even balcony can have an electric barbecue – so don’t give up the authentic flavour of grilled food, which you can have ready in less than 20 minutes if you only have a small outdoor space.

Gas and electric barbecues are also the best option for use in windy conditions, guaranteeing you will still be able to cook all of those burgers and sausages no matter what the weather! If you struggle to start a barbecue this is the one for you.

Electric barbecues

Like gas barbecues, electric barbecues are great in windy weather as well as faster to light than charcoal barbecues, easier to clean, and the enormous variety available allows you to choose the model you want depending on your budget.

Their easy functionality means an electric barbecue will last much longer than a charcoal one.

Pellet barbecues

With rising popularity over the past few years, pellet barbecues are very easy to install – even in the trickiest of spaces! You can smoke or roast your food, and the taste will depend on the type of pellets you decide to use.

As well as being easy to use, fast, safe, and simple, pellet barbecues are also a very good option for those who prefer an environmentally friendly option.

Charcoal barbecues

There is a huge variety of charcoal barbecue options on the market, including built-in and portable models, offering a wide range of possibilities and advantages.

Charcoal barbecues offer a fantastic smoky flavour, they don’t require any hook-ups, they are versatile and lightweight, and you can choose a variety of cooking methods such as direct on the grill or smoking.

Hybrid barbecues

With a hybrid barbecue, you can enjoy the comfort and functionality of a gas barbecue with the unique taste and flavour of a traditional charcoal barbecue. They are perfect if you want to have a barbecue that works for any gathering, both large and small groups, and can be used with both fuels.

Hybrid barbecues are easier to clean than charcoal, you can control the temperature easily and add other functionalities such as side shelves for easier cooking, and you have the advantage of a choice between charcoal and gas all in one model.

Combo barbecues

These barbecues are designed to offer a variety of cooking options, which may include smoking, baking, searing, roasting, grilling, barbecuing, and high-heat roasting.

The most common models use coal and gas, and you can cook a wide variety of foods from meat to fish, vegetables, and desserts, making it perfect for any occasion, from a family dinner to a party with friends.

Smokers are a versatile tool for any keen cook or barbecue lover!

There are three main types of smokers, each with their own advantages and characteristics. Charcoal or wood-fired smokers are great for an authentic traditional flavour, while electric smokers are very easy to operate and allow for simple temperature control. Pellet smokers are a very popular choice due to their precise temperature control and smoky flavour.
