FERRARI OF THE FLAMERS - Coleman Diamento (pounds 2,249, see www.coleman-bbq.com) The Diamento is indeed the Ferrari of the outdoor cooking station - and you might expect at least a ride in a real one for the price.

Add the 10-year warranty and it's easy to see why this is the favourite among seasoned grillers.
FAMILYFEAST - Two Burner Gas Barbecue With Side Burner (pounds 79.99, from www.argos.co.uk) The combination of a big grill area, side burner and warming rack ensure that you can cook enough to feed a small army without anyone having to wait.
