PRODUCTS STAKES RISE IN PRESENTATION BARBECUES EVOLVE TO NEW LEVELS OF SOPHISTICATION Entertaining outdoors is now a stylish affair with barbecues (clockwise from above) by Electrolux, Beefeater and Wiltshire. Details: bunnings.com.au; beefeaterbbq.com; electrolux.com.au; wiltshirebbq.com.au Janita Singh SO you've got the cooking bug and are ready to invest in a new barbecue. Just wander around any barbecue store and you'll quickly find that your options are legion. Should it be a coal or gas burning; cast iron cooktop or stainless steel; single grill or with extra burners; whether you're cooking for two or entertaining a crowd -- today's barbecue can cater for all. A survey by Electrolux says when the weather warms up, most Australians entertain around a barbecue three times a week. To support this trend, the hum- ble barbecue has evolved to de- liver the same level of sophisti- cation as we expect from many indoor kitchen appliances. Today barbecues are architec- turally designed to harmonise with the environment, one such line is the award-winning Elec- trolux E:Volution and En:tice bar- becues with thoughtful features and stylish, durable finishes. Bunnings also carries a wide range of barbecues to suit all needs and national leisure buyer Cameron Rist says its important to know what to look for within your budget. Wiltshire has just unveiled its first gas barbecues with smarter design, offering great value. BeefEater says size matters and to consider how big your barbecue area is and how many people you want to entertain. For small court- yards or balconies, consider a Weber or compact two-burner. OUTDOOR LIFESTYLE Barbecue ideas from Bunnings. PORTABLE, freestanding, or built-in? Portable models give you the flexibility to take your barbecue anywhere. When choosing a new barbecue, you need to consider your lifestyle and whether you want a smaller, movable option for multiple locations, or a larger model as a permanent fixture. Price There is a wide range of barbe- cue sets available to suit all pockets and needs, but you need to be realistic about what your money will get you. There are many cheap barbecues that have lots of options but won't last long. Set-Up and performance Set up your barbecue in a well- ventilated area, ensuring the grill is clear of any buildings, doors, windows or cars to lessen the danger from fumes and smoke. Keep it protected with a durable cover when not in use and regu- larly clean your barbecue.
