With another bank holiday on the horizon and the Coronavirus guidelines now allowing us to have friends round in our gardens, it's no wonder that BBQs are in high demand.
We all love a good garden get together, and you can't beat that chargrilled taste you get from a BBQ grill on a warm summer's evening with a couple of cold ones.
We're set to have the hottest summer in ten years in the UK this year, which means plenty of opportunities for hot dogs - actual hot dogs, not just photos of your legs looking like them in the sun.
We've rounded up some of the best budget-friendly gas and electric BBQs on the market so you can get ready for summer.
Featuring two cooking grids for gas and two for charcoal, this BBQ gives you the option to achieve that charred, smokey BBQ taste with your meat.
In addition, there's a side burner, hooks for your utensils, a side shelf, spice box, wheels, and even a bottle opener - so you can stand and enjoy a cold one while you put the BBQ to work on the burgers.

Coming in at the cheapest is the steel, black Argos Home 3 Burner Gas BBQ with a side burner and wheels - so it's easy to move around.

This BBQ also features a side table for food prep, a warming rack, hooks for your utensils, and a side burner as well as the three main burners. The BBQ comes with a propane gas regulator, but you can use butane gas with it too if you buy a regulator.
