Of course they're all different prices differing amounts of charcoal some are easy to light others aren't.

I think the Big K ones are very good but I don't know who sells them. Tescos are 3 at the moment for some reason. ( I think Waitrose are about 5)

Aren't you better off getting a cheap one from B&Q so you can re-use it?

Just make sure you get the double ones tbh, the singles are rubbish if there is more than one of you.

I'd suggest Somerfield/Coop, they may not be the cheapest but the do seem to have the most charcoal in them and don't need topping up with more like most of the others...

It would be a bit odd going to a beach with a full on BBQ don't you think?

Tesco had some big painted metal buckets with grilles on them in stock the other day branded up as portable BBQs. Quite a nice way of taking a BBQ to the beach without the mess of a disposable

What a pathetic thread.

Please learn to make a decision yourself on a use once item such as this.

By the time you have travelled to get the cheapest one, you might have spent more in travel costs.

Just pick some up next time you do your groceries.

co-op ones are good. 1.75 each but be sure to let the flames die down completely, they're good to cook on for 45mins or so.
morrisons ones are 2.25 each but not as good. they burn for a good hours or so but not as hot so your food ends up quite dry.

Just buy the cheapest you can find in your area , they are all pretty much a muchness tbh, we used about 5 of them yesterday all different brands and they all did the job

A good idea is to stock up on them at the end of summer when they are selling for a few pence

I have a folding bbq I use if i'm driving somewhere, much better than any disposable.

However if i'm walking to the bbq site (need something lighter) I buy the homebase party sized one. It's about 7 quid but it burns a lot lot longer than the cheap supermarket ones do, you get about an hour and a half cooking time from it after it's heated up. I find you only get about 20-30 minutes from the cheap oenes.

DO NOT get the cheapest you can find.

The poundland ones are incredibly difficult to light without lighting fuel, despite the fact that they have the lighting paper in them. They really are of awesomly poor quality,
Same as the bog standard ones, the charcoal goes out quickly and doesn;t retain much heat.

Also the best way to light them is to take off the mesh and stick the paper under the charcoal, who's stupid idea was it to put paper on top...

Thats a terrible idea, the paper doesn't light properly, usually chokes and dies when you do that. The paper won't burn underneath the coals easily either.
On top lights evenly, the coals burn evenly and heat up much quicker. That is the way they're designed to be lit and that is the best way to do it.

Because heat and flames sink right?

It lights the coals far easier and doesn''t get choked. I used to have terrible trouble lighting the damn things before I started doing that. The paper would light and then go out before the coals lit.

You're buying the wrong bbqs then, every time i've done it top it's worked out great.
I was camping with a load of lads on friday. They had some disposables, one put the sheet underneath, it took like 20 minutes to even light the sheet properly. I left the grill on, lit the top sheet, and the coals went nicely.

It's not just a piece of paper, it's designed so that the lighting fluid contained in the paper falls and goes underneath the coals and lights them.
