When it comes to garden buys, we're always on the lookout for a good deal - especially when it comes to BBQs.

Given the unpredictable British weather, they often don't get as much use as we'd like, so we try to hunt down top-rated options at affordable prices.

Case in point: the Texas Oil Drum Charcoal BBQ from Homebase. This streamlined drum BBQ is ideal for tucking away in a corner when not being used and wheeling out on a sunny Sunday.

While it already retailed for an affordable £70, the it's not on sale for an absolute bargain £35.

Why we rate it

Not only is it affordable, it's also big enough to feed the whole family (and then some). In fact, the BBQ claims to be able to cook up to 20 burgers at a time - that's a lot of grilling power.

The design is made from sturdy steel and is fitted with a steel hood ideal for roasting. It also features a porcelain steel wire cooking grill with sliding function for ease and a chrome plated warming rack.

Not to mention it comes with wheels to make it easy to manoeuvre around the garden or patio.

Just don't forget to also add a bag of charcoal to your basket before heading to the checkout. Homebase sells a whole range of charcoal briquettes and smoking chips, starting from just £4.

What the reviews say

It's a hit with Homebase shoppers, who highly rate it for its low price and ability to cook barbecued meals for larger families.

  • "Purchased this and got a great deal. Only used once so far but perfect for what I need it for. I recommend laying some foil on the bottom drum below the coal grate. Makes clean up a lot easier plus adds a little extra protection to the drum. Very easy to put together and sturdy."

  • "Nice bbq, easy to use and light to move around. Good value for money."

  • "Great price for what you get. Good sized barbecue, great for big families."

  • "Easy to assemble & very sturdy for the price. Good size for family of four/six."
