If you don't have a barbecue set, invest in one now, for Father's day and all of those end-of-the-year festivities. With so many different barbecue varieties and styles on the market, Mitre 10 outdoor barbecues and recreation category manager Jacki Kersting offers some advice. ''As outdoor rooms appear to be getting smaller and barbecues bigger, consider the size, width and cooking capacity. ''For small courtyards or balconies, consider a Weber or a compact two- burner barbecue. For tiny spaces, look for a barbecue with wheels or folding legs, to make it easy to tuck away and store,'' Ms Kersting said. ''If space is abundant, there are a number of great six-burner barbecues to suit any budget, featuring plenty of storage space, side burners or brass wok burners -- everything but the kitchen sink. ''Moving away from the traditional black barbecue -- people looking to make a statement or add a splash of colour to their outdoor room, the new Grilled 3-Burner barbecue in a unique green leaf tea gloss is the perfect option.'' Tips to help keep your barbecue looking and cooking like new: Clean your barbecue after each use to prevent grease build-up; Once it's clean, spread a light layer of cooking oil across your hot plate to create a protective barrier; Cover and store your barbecue out of the elements for prolonged life; and Regularly check your gas connections with a soapy water solution prior to lighting and tighten them until the soapy bubbles disappear.
