Why buy at Argos?

Now that barbecue season is in full swing, you’ll definitely want to take a look at our comprehensive outdoor cooking range for everything you’ll need to impress friends and family this season and have your best barbecues yet. From tools to fuel and a huge range of great quality barbecues, we’ve got you covered - and there’s something here for all requirements and every budget. Why not get yourself one of our outdoor pizza ovens and take your homemade pizzas to the next level?

Barbecues and accessories

Want to try your hand at creating some delicious all-American smoked barbecue food? If that’s the case then our BBQ smokers are definitely the way to go to achieve those classic flavours everyone loves. They’re so simple to use too; you use the main chamber to grill your food while an attached side firebox burns wood for that quintessential smoky flavour. Perhaps you want to create your own barbecue rubs and seasonings as well? What you need for this is a pestle and mortar - a kitchen cupboard staple and just the thing for grinding up herbs and spices.

Not all barbecues were created equal, and we’ve got you covered with plenty of choice. If you’d prefer not to use traditional barbecue coals then why not go for one of our gas barbecues instead? These are definitely the way to go for totally hassle-free outdoor cooking - so there’s never any need to worry that those coals just won’t get going! You’ll have optimal control over your cooking as well, so you’re much less likely to burn food. Check out our full range for an array of high quality options from top brands like Landmann.

And if you’d rather keep it classic then you’ve come to the right place for lots of traditional barbecues as well. Whether you love entertaining and you’re going to be cooking for lots of people, or you’re after something compact for occasional use, you’re sure to find just what you’ve got in mind in our range. Why not pick up some charcoal briquettes as well? Ultra-easy to light and producing a constant heat, these also burn for longer than lumpwood charcoal - which means they’re definitely the way to go if you’re going to be cooking multiple batches on your barbecue.

Garden dining

Now that the weather’s getting warmer it’s the perfect time to enjoy some al fresco garden dining - which means a garden dining set is exactly what you need. It’s the perfect addition to your patio this season, and we have a great range to choose from. If you’re going for a rustic vibe then how about our sturdy wooden benches? Meanwhile, a glass table top with rattan seats is thoroughly modern and stylish - or you might go for a timelessly elegant cast iron effect instead.

Of course, if you want to keep it simple and have a picnic then you can forgo the table and chairs and check out our picnic blankets instead. We have an array of lovely designs, including classic check patterns to channel those traditional vibes. Choose one with a PVC backing, so there’s no need to worry about the grass being damp.

Garden decorations

If you’ll be having guests over for garden parties and barbecues this season, spruce up your patio area and make the space as inviting as possible. When it comes to your garden seating in particular, add some outdoor cushions as a finishing touch for style and comfort combined. Give a nod to the shades of the season with bright hues - or how about bold tropical prints?

The days may be getting longer and lighter but when the sun does finally go down, and if you’ll be entertaining into the evening, then you’ll want to check out our comprehensive range of outdoor lighting too. Stylish and practical in equal measure, we have a huge range of options to choose from - so no matter what kind of look you’re going for in your garden, you’re sure to find the perfect lighting solution. Our classic lamp posts are an elegant choice - or how about some bottle lanterns for after-dark ambience? And for something fun and a little bit retro, you can’t do better than a bright pink flamingo!

Perhaps you’re after a few garden decorating tips? You’ve come to exactly the right place and the options are almost endless. You might consider training climbing plants around an obelisk for a statement feature in your garden - or how about planting up some rustic wooden crates with your favourite flowers for the perfect finishing touch to your patio?

Camping gear

With the warmer weather on its way, it’s the perfect time to make the most of it and go camping - and if you’ve never done it before, then look no further than our beginner’s guide to camping. One thing you definitely can’t do without is a tent and sleeping bag, and we’ve got you covered for all the extras including camping mats and airbeds, plus stoves, chairs, torches and more.
