BBQ Sizes

BBQs come in a range of sizes so depending on what the occasion is, you want to ensure you pick the perfect one. Things to take into consideration are the size or the area you plan on having the BBQ, the convenience, and the maneuverability you're after. Because BBQs come in so many different sizes we want to ensure that you select one that will suit both your needs and also your outdoor area. 



Deck/Patio BBQ's

However, with these bigger BBQs comes the need for larger storage space. If you intend to leave this outdoors, we recommend purchasing a heavy-duty cover to keep your BBQ safe from the elements of NZ.

Portable BBQ's

Perfect for those that are working with a smaller space but want the fire and flare that BBQs provide to food.
Portable BBQs are perfect for those that are looking for a small yet versatile BBQ. Whether it’s at the campsite, at the beach house, at home, or down at the beach, portable BBQs allow for flexibility for your grill time.

Featuring 1 - 2 burner capability.


Size Considerations

When it comes to selecting the size of the BBQ that’s right for your needs, you’ll need to consider two things:

  • Space: You’ll need to grab the tape measure and measure the size of the physical space you intend to store your BBQ. Keep in mind that gas BBQs will need space on one side to allow for the gas bottle to be stored. 
  • Catering Size: Depending on how many mouths you're intending to cater for. Gas BBQs provide a larger cooking space as the number of burners increases.
