How to Choose the Best BBQs for Your Christmas Cookouts



The holiday season is right around the corner, and for many of us, that means it's time to prepare for festive gatherings and mouthwatering feasts. If you're planning to host a Christmas cookout, you know that having the right BBQ is essential. At BBQ Spit Rotisseries, we understand the joy of outdoor cooking during the holiday season, and we're here to help you choose the best BBQ for your Christmas cookouts. In this guide, we'll walk you through the factors to consider when selecting the perfect grill for your holiday feasts.

The Variety of BBQs for Christmas Cookouts

When it comes to BBQs, you'll find a variety of options to choose from. The four main types we sell are charcoal, spit rotisseries, pizza ovens, and smoker BBQs. Each has its own set of advantages and drawbacks, so it's essential to select the one that best suits your needs and cooking style.

  • Charcoal BBQs: A charcoal BBQ is a type of outdoor grill that uses charcoal briquettes or lump charcoal as the primary fuel source to cook and flavour food through open flame and smoke.



  • Spit Rotisseries: A spit rotisserie is a cooking device consisting of a rotating skewer that holds and evenly cooks food, typically meats, as it turns slowly over an open flame or heating element.



  • Pizza Ovens: A pizza oven is a specialised cooking appliance designed to reach high temperatures and bake pizzas quickly, often utilising wood, gas, or electric heat sources, and characterised by its ability to produce crispy, thin-crust pizzas with a smoky flavour.



  • Smoker BBQs: A smoker BBQ, also known as a barbecue smoker, is a cooking device designed to slow-cook and flavour meat or other foods by using indirect heat and wood smoke to create a smoky and tender result.
