    I'm sure that we've all been there, you're trying to achieve that smoky, tender meat for all your guests but it's starting to get dark and you don't know if you're going to have time, an absolute disaster. Investing into a hybrid or a dual fuel BBQ means that you have the option for a slower cook with that classic flavour, or a quicker cook if you've got a boat load of guests and little time.

    We've had a look through and all the different options and brought it down to the absolute best on the market, and the best value options too, so there's a little something for everyone.

    Char-Broil Gas2Coal 440 Hybrid Grill Gas Barbecue

    Char-Broil Gas2Coal 2.0 Hybrid Grill - 4 Burner Gas & Coal Barbecue Grill, Black Finish

    • Gas2Coal Patented Charcoal Tray - ensures less flare-ups and uniform heat for cooked, tastily food
    • Stainless Steel Burners - strong, durable burners that are built to last
    • Electronic Igniter - lights up your grill at the push of a button
    • Porcelain Coated Cooking Cast Iron Grates - durable porcelain coating on these cooking grates makes them rust-resistant and easy-to-clean
    • Lid-Mounted Temperature Gauge - monitor the inside temperature of your grill

    A top of the range option, this BBQ is from one of the most well-respected brands in the industry, Char-Broil are known for their top products and products that last too.

    This BBQ is built for convenience, it'll make your time cooking as luxurious as possible, a built in temperature gauge and a simple button to get that gas going will keep you as relaxed as possible through the process.

    The large space for grilling but a neat space for coal and gas, this tidy little BBQ takes up as little room as possible, far smaller than an individual gas and coal cooker.

    Char-Broil The Big Easy® - Smoker, Roaster and Grill

    Char-Broil The Big Easy® - Smoker, Roaster and Grill with TRU-Infrared™ technology, Black Finish.

    • TRU-Infrared cooking system - cooks food evenly, with less flare-ups to give up to 50% juicier food and uses up to 30% less gas.
    • Cook without the extra fat - smoke meat, roast chicken, or grill steaks without oil.
    • Grill top - removable, easy to clean porcelain coated cooking grates that grill steaks and vegetables, without flare-ups.
    • Rotary ignition - lights quickly and easily with the turn of a knob.
    • Roaster - roast up to 11kg of meat using the cooking basket with adjustable racks.
    • Rib hooks - comes with 4 rib hooks to roast mouth-watering ribs.

    Another great option by Char-Broil, this BBQ is extremely versatile and will keep your garden as tidy as possible, as it serves as a smoker, a roaster and a grill!

    This is also why this is the product for the best value, as it provides so much in just one price, along with a two-year guarantee and an assurance of how long it'll last by such a great name as Char-Broil.

    The option as a roaster is something you wont find in very many BBQs in the current market, and being able to roast 11kg of chicken without oil is an amazing little addition that other BBQs wont have. It can also do ribs, with 4 rib hooks!

    The gas side includes three burners, as well as another additional side burner to bring temperatures up to 280 degrees, more than enough for any of your cooking needs.
