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

Advantages: Easy to use, good value for money

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

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

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

Cool Charcoal:
Review of Homebase Instant Lighting Charcoal by DigitalThing

Advantages: Easy Lighting
Disadvantages: More Expensive Than Normal Charcoal

Instant Lighting Charcoal is much better than normal charcoal because it saves you time and infact money. The extra price you would spend with normal lumpwood charcoal, on firelighters, or gas to put on the B.B.Q. would easily be in excess of the price of ... Read review

good op! well done .. jm by BadBoy
Hi and welcome to Ciao! Your opinion looks as though you didn't quite get time to finish it - it "hangs" at the end. Also, it is apparently about a different model? Or is this a different marketing name? If it's a different model, email Ciao (link at the bottom of the page) and ask them to move it to the correct category - they will create one if necessary. You can also update your work - read your own opinion and click the "Edit" link on the orange bar then make changes and press Submit again. Let me know if you do and I'll come back to re-rate the first attempt in an interesting career... Regards, TT. by TallTone
