Now rebranded as Easy Light
Review of Homebase Instant Lighting Charcoal by ANNExTHExFLAN

Advantages: It is easier to light a bag than coals. No residue of the paper bag in the taste of the food.
Disadvantages: More expensive than other coals.

We usually have our first BBQ around April if the weather is good and carry on as late into the year as possible, our last BBQ happening as late as November if we can guarantee the rain will hold off for long enough to cook the sausages.  We have always u ... Read review

Easy lighting, easy living
Review of Homebase Instant Lighting Charcoal by Listerbelle

Advantages: Work great!
Disadvantages: A little expensive

Living in Australia for the first 25 years of my life means that barbecuing food is practically second nature to me. Or so I thought until I moved to London when I discovered that nobody I knew even vaguely actually barbecued with wood. Fancy gas applianc ... Read review

Good but expensive
Review of Homebase Instant Lighting Charcoal by mollymoo818

Advantages: Easy to light and gets all the charcoal within white
Disadvantages: Expensive

Good but expensive Although we haven’t had much chance for the last few weeks thanks to the terrible weather normally we like to barbecue two or even three times a week during the summer holidays because the kids love it and it allows us to spend ... Read review

Sizzling Short Cut
Review of Homebase Instant Lighting Charcoal by pdoyle007

Advantages: Easy to light, lasts a long time
Disadvantages: None

With a few hot summer days I tried to get into the spirit by bringing out the BBQ and doing some outdoor cooking before the inevitable rains came. My BBQ is a 'real' (charcoal) BBQ, however only a small circular one (only two of us and the puppy to cook ... Read review

A summer with Weber-Stephens Charcoal BBQ
Review of Weber-Stephens Charcoal BBQ by Imperial07

Advantages: A very handy tool and perfect for small BBQ parties in summer
Disadvantages: Generates carbon that is not environmentally friendly

I was not much fascinated by Charcoal BBQ until I enjoyed summer parties in various European countries i.e France, Italy and UK where my pallets got chance to taste charcoaled flavoured food. Afterword, I really become BBQ food-alcoholic and could not re ... Read review

Review of Homebase Instant Lighting Charcoal by bexx0907

Advantages: Easy to use, good value for money
Disadvantages: None

Barbecue season is well and truly upon us, and although much of it has been a bit of a washout so far, we have managed to fit a couple of barbecues in as this is how we like to dine during the summer months (when the weather permits obviously!). We have ... Read review

Less mess, less time, more money
Review of Homebase Instant Lighting Charcoal by carlz2001

Advantages: So much easier to use, simply light. Mess free
Disadvantages: Slightly more money than normal charcoal

Somehow in the ‘heat wave’ which lasted all of 3 days last week, we managed to use our BBQ, and pretend like it was summer for a day! I’m actually not the biggest fan of BBQ’s, I’ll happily go round to somebody else’s house but I can’t stand how time cons ... Read review

No More Getting Dirty In The Garden!!
Review of Homebase Instant Lighting Charcoal by johnny040676

Advantages: No mess, no more lighter fluid, easy to use
Disadvantages: a bit dearer than normal charcoal but well worth it.

I tried a gas bbq for a couple of years on the advice of a few people I know saying that they didn't taste any different than a proper bbq, and I suppose they don't really taste that different and they are certainly much easier and cleaner to set up ... Read review

Review of Rectella Charcoal BBQ by scottishkat

Advantages: Great for small BBQ partys
Disadvantages: Hard to build

We had seen them on the inernet at £59.99. So when we saw one at Safeways/Morrisons for £44.99 we thought that we give it a go. When we got it home and started to built it we both found the instructions not very clear and putting on the washers and bol ... Read review

**NOT JUST A SIMPLE BURGER BBQ**
Review of Weber-Stephens Charcoal BBQ by justlin54

Advantages: VERSATILE AND CAN OVEN COOK
Disadvantages: nothing that a glove couldn't fix...... Charcoal is dirty

I have had a Weber-Stephens BBQ Grill for almost 15 years now and despite hubbies urge to go buy a fancier gas BBQ ( Boys and their Toys comes to mind), I still insist on my basic Weber. Although a gas BBQ might be cleaner and slightly easier to use, it ... Read review
