“May you always be surrounded by good friends and a great BBQ.”Dave Anderson
There is something exciting about a journey. Each step of a journey brings reward and moments that should be enjoyed and appreciated. Oft times, the journey is more important than the destination. That is why we at Horkans are bringing you on our journey with us. You may recall our two previous steps – garden furniture and garden statues. Well now it is time to sink our teeth into the really fun stuff – the sizzling, smoking and mouth-watering BBQ.
In our BBQ area we have selected a range of grills to meet the needs of all, whether a grill novice or master. We want grilling to be effortless and we have ensured this is reflected in our barbecue range. Living in an apartment with limited space? We have the grill for you. Owner of a large backyard? You’ve come to the right place. We recognise the importance of selecting the right utensil to feed your friends and family and hence we have chosen only the best brands to fulfill your needs. Looking for the answer to the age-old question, gas or charcoal? Our answer is both! Read on to find out about some of the key features of our range of gas and charcoal barbecues.
The gas barbecue has been reinvented in recent years. It no longer represents a simple outdoor gas hob, but rather a grill with the ability to cook the tastiest, juiciest and most succulent of flame-grilled food, with that traditional mouth-watering barbecue flavour. At Horkans we stock some of the best gas barbecues on the market. Our range includes products from Char-Broil, Leisure Grow, Space Grill and Weber; a collection of the most innovative and experienced grill companies.
Char-Broil describe themselves as a “a leader in gas, charcoal and electric grills”, since 1948. They stock an exceptional range of gas barbecues and here at Horkans we are very proud to be bringing them to you. Among the range available are:
- The X200 Grill2Go Barbecue. It is a portable barbecue that allows you to barbecue, wherever you go.
- Professional grill series, which offers an innovative feature known as Tru-Infrared cooking.
- Performance grill series, featuring easy to control cooking temperatures. Some also offer Tru-Infrared cooking.
- The ‘Big Easy’. Its features include being a smoker, roaster and grill, all in one. It also offers Tru-Infrared cooking and the ability to cook up to 11kg of meat with no oil.
- The Gas2Coal barbecue. A hybrid grill that easily converts from gas to charcoal in three simple steps and in less than 60 seconds.
Tru-Infrared cooking distributes heat evenly across the grill surface, creating consistent grilling temperatures. It creates a barrier between your food and the flames, hence ensuring fewer flare-ups. Most importantly, it heats your food at the grill’s surface, retaining flavor other grills let escape. This gives you up to 50% juicier food, while using 30% less gas. You can check out the full range of Char-Broil gas barbecues here.
At Horkans we stock two barbecues from Leisure Grow, both are 3 burner barbecues:
- The Grillstream Classic Gas BBQ, which promises “less fat, no flare-ups, more flavour”.
- The Dante BBQ, complete with a built-in thermostat, condiment rack, 2 side tables, an independent jet flame ignition and built-in bottle opener.

The Weber grill in our range is unique in its ease of storage. It is compact, lightweight and comes with a removable stand, meaning they can easily be tucked away. Despite its size, they do not compromise on flavour or quality of cooking. For further info on our Weber grills, click here.
The charcoal barbecue is the traditional way of grilling outdoors. It comes complete with the authentic sounds and aromas of a smoky barbecue, evoking that mouth-watering craving for BBQ goodness. At Horkans, we stock a range of the best charcoal BBQ’s, including Char-Broil, Feuerdesign, La Hacienca and Weber.
The Char-Broil charcoal barbecue we stock is the Gas2Coal barbecue, mentioned above. It is a hybrid grill that easily converts from gas to charcoal in three simple steps and in less than 60 seconds. If you can’t choose between gas or charcoal, then this is the grill for you.
Feuerdesign is a German brand that offers exciting and innovative barbecuing technology. It offers a USB rechargeable fan with adjustable air flow which means you can grill for up to 4 hours, with minimal wait time. It is also one of the only smokeless BBQ’s, creating an ideal ambiance around the table. At Horkans, we are proud to bring you four various Feuerdesign barbecues. They are practical, portable and cost-effective. They are made of stainless steel which means they are easy to clean and low maintenance.

One of the best in our BBQ range is the Kamado Oven from La Hacienda. The Kamado Oven gives you the option to grill, roast, sear, bake and smoke a range of foods. The Kamado Oven is sure to impress as it serves up the tastiest of dishes and acts as an impressive outdoor centerpiece.
