The beginning of summer also means the beginning of barbecue season, and if you haven't already got one, now is the time to invest!

A favourite of the stars is the Big Green Egg, a kamado-style grill that 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. No wonder then that David Beckham, the Duchess of Sussex, Ronan Keating and James Martin have all showcased theirs in their respective gardens!

Unsurprisingly, with such impressive features comes a hefty price tag, with the large Big Green Egg Nest BBQ priced at £1,490. However, with a lifetime guarantee for the ceramic base, dome, fire box and fire ring, it's a worthy investment.

Alternatively, you could invest in the much smaller – but equally powerful – MiniMax model. Said to be the model that Holly Willoughby has at her family home, this 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.

Proving you don't need to spend a fortune to get a high-quality BBQ, Jamie Oliver has launched his very own model, which is available on Amazon for less than £140. The charcoal BBQ features a round lid and can easily be moved around your garden with a decent cooking area. If it's good enough for Jamie…
