To be able to barbecue you really don't need much to produce good BBQ food. A barbecue, of course, some charcoal, a match, a pair of tongs or a fork and something to cook. You don't need gadgets, BBQ gizmos or any other paraphanalia that is supposed to make your end result better. The reason is that you, perhaps with a little help, are more than capable of producing great BBQ food. Later, when you decide to try low and slow barbecue techniques you will need a few items to help you. You might need a new barbecue or just a couple of pieces of hardware.

Whilst my favourite piece of BBQ equipment is my Weber kettle barbecue, there are other barbecues too including grills, gas barbecues and portable barbecues. If you haven't already bought a barbecue this is a great place to start and learn more about what you can do with them.
Something that I know I enjoy nearly as much as my guests is rotisserie chicken. It took a while for me to develop the technique that I use. The chicken is always moist, fall apart tender and tastes great. If you'd like to experience this, and I think you might be salavating at the prospect, I will tell you how I do that.
As I said before, great BBQ doesn't need many tools but there are a few useful ones that will help you along, especially if you try some more advanced cooking techniques. On this page I want to let you know what I think is useful to have and some things to consider.
And lastly a barbecue care guide. It isn't difficult, you aren't going to get dirty but you are going to have a barbecue that lasts a long time and that produces some of the best BBQ you've ever had.
