Gas is a more convenient option as it provides instant heat and you have no ash to dispose of at the end of the day.

Like when using a gas stove remember to do the safety checks before you start cooking — including checking hose integrity and connections. You can read more in our technical feature, Cooking on gas, here. Whatever your choice always cook outside and ensure your barbecue is in a safe, stable place away from crowds, pets or kids at play.
