Barbecues are designed with a metal tray to hold the wood or charcoal and with a gridiron above it to hold the meat or vegetables. As the market developed, there are more models featuring accessories such as grill levels and spits for turning the meat. Earlier, grills tended to be small so that they could be packed up and easily taken for outdoor picnics. However, bigger size barbecues were created as the market grew and with more demand for barbecues. The food truck industry is also growing and most of them today use compact barbecues, which they can take along. As more and more customers are looking to cook outdoors for enjoyment, manufacturers are launching new and advanced products to make cooking easy—from appetizers to dessert—irrespective of the customer’s location.
When spending the day outdoors, it is important to have everything one needs at easy reach. New inventions such as countertops with drawer storage and drink coolers make it easy to enjoy outdoor parties. With full sinks, refrigerators and lighting, all amenities of the indoor kitchen can be brought outdoors. Grills with cook boxes made of a denser stainless steel retain heat better. These cook boxes take a long time to heat up; however, once they reach the preferred temperature, they maintain it well, even when their lids are opened for a few minutes while checking on the food. Grills made with thinner steel are less efficient as they lose heat through the lid, leading to drier, overcooked meat.
Barbecue accessories include pizza ovens, barbecue tools, outdoor oven cooking tables, steel skewers, hot dog and sausage grill baskets, brush and flavoring pots, mesh grill toppers, ceramic grill grids, skillets, meat thermometers, terracotta pizza ovens, grill cleaning tools, grill covers, grill attachments, baskets, racks and toppers, barbeque gloves, cutlery and knives.
