Barbecues are not reserved to residences with huge lawns and backyard porches. Such residences can certainly accommodate more people but with the right equipment, you can enjoy the same in your apartment building or small townhouse. Modern living focuses on maximum utilization of space, therefore most residents in urban areas only have small spaces to spare for barbecues. Fortunately, there an array of barbecue options available to serve the needs of apartment residents and small homeowners. Lack of space is not enough reason to not enjoy barbecues with your family and guests. Here are some of the compact barbecue options that will keep your weekends tasty.
The Weber Kettle Series
The Weber Kettle is an old design that has stood the test of time and remains one of the most iconic barbecues on the market. Everyone knows the Weber Kettle; it’s the most popular barbecue in Sydney. Designed by Weber, the barbecue features a unique dome-shaped design. Its stay-cool handles are made from a weather-resistant thermoplastic material and are certain to give you years of dependable service. The leg couplings and handles are welded to the barbecue then sealed in porcelain enamel. The Weber Kettle features different barbecue models ranging from the Weber Ranch Kettle, the biggest barbecue in the series, to the Weber Compact Kettle.
· The Weber Compact Kettle
This barbecue holds true to its name. It is the most compact model in the Weber Kettle series with a size of 54 cm, a height of 97cm, and a width of 63cm. The barbecue can easily fit in your small courtyard and the balcony. This model offers quality at a bargain price. The barbecue features vents, ash catchers and legs made of durable non-rust aluminium. The legs can disassemble from the bowl for easy transportation. It’s expected that a small barbecue can only handle a small roast but the Weber Compact Kettle has a cooking area of 2550cm2. This more than enough cooking area to prepare a meat feast.
· The Weber Performer Kettle
If you want the convenience of a work area close to your barbecue due to limited space, the Weber Performer Kettle is the best option for you. This contemporary barbecue still features the iconic dome-shaped Kettle grill but with added features. A sturdy steel work table conveniently folds up beside the grill offering plenty of work area to prepare the meat and all its accompaniments. Under the barbecue, the heavy-duty steel cart provides plenty of storage space for barbecue accessories. The Weber Performer Kettle also features a tuck-away lid holder that conveniently allows the lid to slide out of the way when accessing food. The barbecue also comes with the Weber Gourmet Barbecue System cooking grill. By adding a cast iron sear grate or a pizza stone, you can create a charcoal cooking system with the barbecue.
