There are times when you cannot justify making a splashy appliance purchase such as a luxury gas BBQ for your garden. Maybe you just bought your house and funds are running short. Perhaps that new kitchen sapped your home improvement budget for the year. Or some other big purchases are pending: cars, holiday, or furniture can all knock you off budget. A small budget, however, doesn’t have to prevent you from getting all the grill you need and want this summer. The one thing about the competition in the gas BBQ space is that you can get large, luxury gas BBQs for less than £200.
Between £150-£200, you can find amazing gas BBQ options that will offer a large grilling surface space with all the added features and tech advances as more expensive models. These options are not only affordable but durable, stylish and versatile. The gas BBQ grills under £200 will give you all the functionality you need and allow financial wriggle room for other of life’s necessities.
This great value gas BBQ makes our Best Gas BBQ 2017 list for good reason. It has simple high-quality design coupled with good grilling performance. Four cast iron burners fueled by a 48k propane or butane gas; massive 42 x72 cm grill surface area (half grill and half griddle); temperature gauge and warming rack. This is the complete package: a sturdy, reliable, fully loaded grill that looks great in your backyard.
The large cooking surface supported by variable temperature control is the big high-end feature here- it essentially allows you to create four or five separate heating zones on your grill to allow for cooking of different meats or vegetables at once. All of this for just under £200. If you don’t let your guests in on this secret, they will think you paid much more!
With around 100 reviews on Amazon, this gas BBQ is rightly popular, here are some of the positive comments coming its way:
“Great replacement BBQ, looks good, cooks well very pleased with it.”
“It was a family affair to put the BBQ together. Once up and running my future son in law, whom we bought it for, has had several BBQ get togethers and the food has been cooked perfectly every time.”
This slick, modern looking gas BBQ for under £200 really commands your attention with its powder coated finish and rounded corners making it stand out from the crowd. There are 4 main gas burners under the grill so you can cook as much or as little as you want. The hood gives you the extra control over temperatures inside the grill and has a handy thermometer in the lid to keep track of whether the desired temperature has been reached.
On one of the sides is an extra burner, ideal for warming through sauces or cooking extras such as beans or onions to go with all your lovely BBQ food. The other side is a handy prep area for any chopping or for setting down utensils while you cook.
There are two doors at the front concealing handy cupboard space when the BBQ isn’t in use. For easy storage, the FoxHunter Gas BBQ comes with two big wheels to make movement slick.
Customers are generally happy with their purchase saying:
“Excellent, first BBQ was a complete success and food was cooked to perfection quickly and easily”
Great bbq roll on the summer !
The CosmoGrill (as the name would suggest) has a whopping 6 burners beneath the hood and another side burner for heating of sides. With all that fire power and grilling space you would expect it to cost more than £200, however, this one comes in at around £180. Obviously, with all the benefits of the large grill and easy to use burners, there will be a few downsides. Build quality is maybe not the best you can hope for and the materials used are not at the high-end level such as porcelain coated cast iron. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give the CosmoGrill a go. It is perfect if you need the versatility of cooking for different sized parties from dinner for two to a party for 20.
If you have the space to store it in a shed or garage (moving the gas BBQ is easy with the large wheels) then the lack of high-end materials won’t matter. The CosmoGrill stands out from other BBQs with its black finish and would suit a modern backyard or garden.
This gas BBQ also comes with side prep tables, one each side if you’re not using the side burner. Storage under the BBQ is also a plus for when you have lots of utensils to store.
Customers have high praise for the CosmoGrill Gas BBQ:
“amazing value for money we bbq every night, weather permitting, so we really use our bbq. easy to assemble and cooks brilliantly”
“This BBQ was easy to assemble, well designed and up and running in no time at all. Works really well !”
