One of the most common habits to welcome the beautiful spring and summer days - but why not, also a great idea to create a moment of conviviality during the winter months - is to organise a barbecue with family and friends. Synonymous with cheerfulness and fun, grilling is a timeless ritual that is becoming more and more popular, and also an opportunity to taste healthy and tasty cooking. Grilling makes it possible to prepare different recipes without the addition of fat, obtaining food with extraordinary taste and consistency, which is difficult to achieve using traditional methods. No matter if you love meat, fish or vegetables: buying an outdoor charcoal grill is a great idea, and you will have a tool that will allow you to try new recipes all the time. But which charcoal bbq to choose?
The models available you can find on the market can vary considerably in shape and type and are suitable for the most diverse occasions. Barbecue purists generally prefer outdoor wood-burning barbecues, while many opt for a simpler fixed or charcoal grill with charcoal embers. If you don’t want to renounce to comfort, you can opt for a gas grill, which allows controlling the intensity of the flame as in a traditional cooker, while as a solution for a quick terrace barbecue can also fit electric grills, small in size and therefore easily transportable.

Generally, charcoal barbecues are considered the traditional method of grilling food and are very suitable for your garden and outdoor cooking in general; an optimal location, as the smoke and smells, especially during lighting, cannot disturb your neighbours. When using a charcoal grill, the unmistakable aroma is transmitted to the food that you grill on it; especially when your outdoor space is limited and doesn’t allow to install a masonry grill or a fixed grilling solution, a traditional, portable charcoal bbq grill is the easiest solution to meet your needs.
This type of garden grill is practical, as it can be easily transported outside and placed in different locations, as much as it can be conveniently stored and protected from the weather when not in use. To ensure maximum comfort, some of our models are equipped with two, three or four wheels, making it easier to move them around. Some charcoal grills on sale on HiFi-Tower are equipped with a smoker, a useful accessory you can use in combination with the main charcoal barbecue; thanks to the fumes produced by vegetable fuels - charcoal, wood chips or wood - gives the meat a more intense flavour and a softer texture.
Larger models are also equipped with different shelves, thus offering enough space to grill in full comfort, always having what you need at hand. Steaks, crispy sausages, chops, fish or vegetables can be deliciously grilled with an outdoor charcoal grill using charcoal or wood. Regardless of your favourite way of grilling, when choosing your charcoal grill, it’s important to give priority to durable materials. Stainless steel grills can withstand harsh weather conditions; in addition to their elegant appearance guaranteed by the polished metal, they will not only be protected from rust but can also be cleaned using a special grill cleaner.
