The age-old BBQ argument. Convenience of gas, flavour of charcoal. But which do you prefer? Some of the stats out there show that gas is still a firm favourite in many a back garden these days but, there is also now a growing army of fans of flavour, who are moving across to what is considered by many, to be the longer winded and more involved version of BBQ cooking, and that’s charcoal.[Read more…]
The Camp Chef Woodwind Wifi 24 is a new Pellet Grill to the UK BBQ Market, I’ve been really enjoying cooking on this grill, and it has a lot of features that make it stand out from the competition. Not only does the pellet grill side of things have some clever features, such as the easy to clean fire pot, it has a sliding firepot cover and slotted grease tray, which gives an element of direct heat, so unlike a lot of pellet grills you can get a great sear on a steak.
The other real feature of this grill is the Sidekick sideburner, which has a good few additions that make it ultra versatile, such as a plancha, a pizza oven, and a grill box, so while you can low n slow your ribs and brisket in the main pellet grill. You can whip up a few pitmaster privilege extras while you’re waiting. In this video I show you what is possible to cook at the same time. Look out for a future camp chef unboxing video coming up.
Please check out my video on this cracking grill below for more details.

I was kindly sent the SmokeFire EX4 for review by Weber as part of a new campaign to raise awareness of the product. The following overview is formed, based on having cooked on the grill for 1 week, covering a range of cook types and styles and utilising all the grill’s features. Whilst I was gifted the SmokeFire grill and accessories and as such is a paid promotion, this review will be unbiased and fully my own opinion.[Read more…]
Big name for a small unit. Icon. But they say good things come in small packages, so does that apply to this model from the Monolith range? Little ceramic grills like this have become quite popular in the last few years with some of the budget supermarkets even getting in on the action.[Read more…]

Some brands of BBQ manufacturers produce a product and then stick to the ‘If it aint broke, don’t try to fix it’ school of thought. Well that’s all well and good but more recent times in the BBQ world have meant that some of these long standing and well-established manufacturers are being left behind. The market for outdoor cooking is ever growing, and more and more people are looking to get involved, and are now armed with more knowledge than ever of cooking styles and types of BBQ and grilling, thanks to social media, BBQ blogs and YouTube videos. As that’s where more forward-thinking brands like ProQ have stepped up to the challenge.[Read more…]
