Top 10 BBQ Christmas Presents

Oh no! It's that crazy time of the year again where we go through the agonising process of making a list of everyone we care about and then brainstorm what that perfect Christmas present is. Alcohol, socks, shirts and vouchers have been done time and time again, not only by me, but by my siblings, so just what is that perfect Christmas present?


I'm not sure about yours, but my family members love showing off and pretending to be a backyard BBQ hero so what better Christmas present than a BBQ or unique BBQ related gadget.


We’re all time poor fighting traffic, trying to find car parking at shopping centres and getting driven mad by Christmas carols, so I’ve done the research and product testing for you to make your decision as stress-free as possible.


1. Flaming Coals Electric Charcoal Starter Wand

Flaming Coals Electric Charcoal Starter WandNo matter if cooking on a kettle BBQ, a spit roaster or a smoker, this BBQ gadget will get the charcoal started in just a few minutes. If your family is notorious for not being able to light the charcoal, or worse still, can only light it with metho/petrol, make their life stress-free and get them one of these. It plugs into a powerpoint so they won’t be scrounging around for batteries continuously and at 2000W, it really does pump out a lot of heat. Such a simple concept that works and is a great value for money
