Choose the Best BBQ – Where Should You Start?



back yard bbbqWow, aren’t we lucky to live in beautiful Victoria, BC where our incredible weather allows us to be outdoors most of the year? This means enjoying walks around our many scenic parks and waterfront areas, playing tennis or golf, and, of course, BBQing! At Capital Iron, we KNOW about BBQs. In fact, we’ve been awarded  “Best of the City” for barbecues by the great people of Victoria for the last 7 years. We’re here to help you choose the best BBQ for you, and are happy to answer any questions you may have. But before you head to one of our showrooms, you may want to narrow down your search a bit.

How Do You Want to Fuel It?

Charcoal and propane are not your only options for BBQs. If you have a natural gas line, you may want to take advantage of that, as natural gas gives you a fast and easy way to get grilling immediately. Propane gives you the same quick and simple start. However, you do have to remember to keep enough propane on hand. Charcoal grills are the original grills that many people can’t get enough of. They’re great, of course, they just need a lot more prep time.close up of bbq

What Size Will You Need?

Before you buy (or even look at) any BBQs, you should measure the space you want to put it in. Whether it’s on your deck, in the backyard or tucked in against a fence, make sure you know how much space you have to work with. A compact grill may be your best option for a small space; however, you can also choose a portable model so you can move it around or take on picnics. If you have a larger space available, consider a larger grill; they have a lot more surface space to work with and can handle a variety of add-ons.portable bbq

Consider Your Set-Up

Some BBQs require a bit of time to set up and get operational. If you’re not sure what you’re doing, you may wish to consider a model which provides an easier set-up. That, or find someone who knows how to help you. At Capital Iron, we’re proud to offer full-service set-up options when you buy your grill, and we actually include this service for free when you purchase a full-size BBQ over $449!
