A favourite of Duchess Meghan, the Beckhams and Holly Willoughby is the Big Green Egg, a kamado-style grill.

The luxe BBQ heats up to 1,000°C and allows for 18 hours of cooking time, meaning anything from delicious slow-cooked ribs to roast chicken are easy to make. It's so durable that it comes with a lifetime guarantee.

If you love a kamado grill, and all it does, but don't necessarily need a high-end Big Green Egg, you can find one on Amazon for less with a mini version coming in at around £200 ($200).

Alternatively, you could invest in the also smaller – but quite powerful – Big Green Egg MiniMax. It's apparently the model Holly Willoughby has at her family home.

The compact grill can still fit four burgers, one chicken, two steaks or a rack of ribs, and has the added benefit of having an easy to grip carrier, so you could even take it away on your next staycation.

While Duchess Meghan is known to be a passionate foodie, we've also taken a look at which BBQs some of your favourite celebrity chefs are using. For example, Gordon Ramsay is such a fan of BeefEater BBQs he has even invested one for his London restaurant, The Narrow.
