Five top deals on portable barbecues for camping and festivals | The Sun

Jun 11, 2022

BARBECUES are brilliant in the garden . . . but they can be even better on the beach or at a festival with friends.

While disposable grills are cheap, the high price paid by the planet should put us off.

Aldi and Waitrose have both committed to stop selling them this summer.

Luckily you can still fire up the fun with a portable barbecue.

It is easy to carry and you can use it all summer long. Here are some other great ideas for outdoor cooking.

FIRED UP FOR FESTIVALS: Compact with a carry handle, the Tower portable briefcase barbecue is a great option for any camping trip or summer festival, now £37.49 at Robert Dyas, down from £49.99.

COOKING ON GAS: Many garden grillers swear by gas barbecues, but it is harder to find good-value carry-along options.

The George Foreman portable grill gas BBQ, down from £139 to £129 at Currys, fits the bill. And it comes with a thermometer to help you produce the very best bangers.
