When the weather is warmer there is nothing better than doing a bit of BBQing and outdoor grilling. Whether it be with a big group of friends or just a family supper, grilling is a delicious, yet decadent way to enjoy some of the best meals. Spend your time in the garden with great cooked meals and good company enjoying all that the summer season has to offer.
A popular barbecue accessory is a rotisserie- this is a cooking appliance that lets you spit-roast meat on a barbecue. There are some great rotisserie BBQs out there and here we look at three of the best BBQs with a rotisserie that you can buy in 2017.
The Fire Mountain Premier 4 Burner Gas BBQ is a serious, solidly built and feature packed BBQ which is reflected in the price of around £650. 4 porcelain coated cast iron burners are under the half griddle half grill cooking area. This gives a great versatility to the cooking options before factoring in the side burner and rotisserie. The independent side burner is perfect for cooking sauces and heating up sides like beans.
The rotisserie is battery powered and uses infrared technology to evenly roast your whole chickens (for example) to give that smokey flavour and juicy finish. The rotisserie can easily be removed when you aren’t using it so it won’t get in the way.
This BBQ is really simple to move with four casters that can be locked in place. Storage will be easy from the garden to shed or garage during the cold season.
Customers on Amazon are happy with their purchase:
“We have used this BBQ about half a dozen times now and love it. Handy storage underneath, easy to use.”
“Great build quality… should last forever.Very happy with this barbeque.”
The Nexgrill 6 Burner Gas BBQ looks stunning in high-grade stainless steel on just about every surface. Just as a stand alone BBQ this one is offering a lot for the price of just under £500 with 5 main burners that are independently operated and one side burner for high heat searing of meat before grilling. This BBQ also boast Even Heating Technology so you shouldn’t be getting hot or cold spots across the grill for confident grilling.
The large hood has an in built thermometer for easy checking and controlling the temperature of the grill so you can be sure your large cuts of meat will be cooked to perfection. A warming rack at the back of the grill allows already cooked meat to stay at optimum temperature while you finish the rest of the meal.
The rotisserie operates over the rear burner and can be kept in place when the hood is closed.
Handy storage in the cupboard beneath and on the prep shelf to the side is provided. This BBQ is moved using four caster wheels so can be easily stored when not in use.
Similar to the Nexus Gas BBQ, this Gas BBQ by Marco Phillippe has 6 burners: 4 main burners for all your grilling, a side burner, and a rear burner for the rotisserie. Where this BBQ differs is that the side burner is more for heating up of sauces than high heat searing. This BBQ is also a lower price retailing for around £270. This finish is maybe not as sleek with some stainless steel as well as black coated steel.
The main cooking area is large enough for a family or party and along with the warming rack you can cater for a large gathering using this gas BBQ. The separate rotisserie burner gives you great control over the meats you are spit roasting.
The large hood has a thermometer so you can quickly gauge if your grilling is at the right temperature and can have peace of mind leaving your food cooking to perfection while you enjoy your party.
Amazon reviewers have been full of praise for the Gas BBQ by Marco Phillippe:
“it is very hard to find a nice barbeque with a rotisserie, and this one really fits the bill”
“The BBQ looks great and works perfectly. I’ve used the rotisserie and rear burner lots of times and to be honest buying this BBQ was the right choice. I hope that other people like it is much as I do!”
Gas BBQ and Rotisserie Round-Up
If you’re thinking of adding extra versatility to your BBQ repertoire then finding a gas BBQ that has a rotisserie is a great idea. Either with an infrared burner like the popular Fire Mountain Premier model or with its own dedicated back burner like the Nexgrill or the Gas BBQ by Marco Phillippe, you will have an added string to your BBQing bow. Roast whole joints of meat to perfection on the rotisserie and cater for large family gatherings and parties with ease.
