Kettle Charcoal BBQ £25 @ Tesco (Free C&C)

Found 17th Jul 2017
It looks like Tesco have added more BBQs to their site, I saw that most "Sold By Tesco" were removed from site not so long back, although I've just checked and some are now back, including this one. It's not showing as on an offer this time, but it's defo a decent price for what it is. Quite like the grey over the usual blacks and reds that I'd normally go for.

In an attractive metallic paint finish, this kettle charcoal barbecue is compact enough to fit conveniently into small outdoor spaces. It is constructed from steel and features a chrome-plated grill with a 43cm diameter cooking area.

Underneath the bowl of this charcoal BBQ is an ash catcher, while the lid of the barbecue includes a heat-resistant handle and an integrated air vent for temperature control. The kettle barbecue is supported by 3 sturdy tubular legs and has 2 wheels for easy manoeuvrability.

For outdoor use only. Do not leave barbecues unattended. Keep small children and pets clear of the cooking area.

Warning: Do not use barbecues in confined spaces, such as a tent. Risk of fatality from carbon monoxide poisoning, even when cooled down.

This BBQ is rubbish. It works relatively well with the lid off but doesn't have enough airflow with the lid on (top & bottom vents open) and the coals go out. Tried drilling more holes in the base of the internal steel lining to no avail.
Its wobbly too. Not stable at all

​Assuming this has a bottom grate for your coals to sit on, I'd be surprised if they didn't stay lit with all the vents open as you say. Sounds to me like you have the coals sat directly on the base of the barbeque with no chance of the coals getting decent air flow beneath them.

When I use my Weber for smoking for example, I have my lower vent barely open at all, top vent fully open, it will stay burning at a low temperature for hours on end.

I'd say your BBQ technique needs fine tuning.
Looking at the link it seems the lower grate is a metal plate with holes in it, instead of a proper grate so I'm sure that doesn't help.

But the you get what you pay for. if you want a decent kettle, dig deep and buy a Weber, you will only have to do it once.
