Say what you want about Aldi (nightmare packing experience, large queues, staff on their phones at the tills [yeah, really]), they don’t half know how to accessorise our gardens for summer.
Last week, it was announced that the budget supermarket’s popular log burners and fire pits are making a return, and not only do they look great, with their diamond shape, they’re also pretty affordable, with the log burner setting you back £59.99 ($74.28) and the fire pit priced at £49.99 ($61.90).
And now there’s another fan favourite going on sale this weekend – ahead of Bank Holiday, no less – and it’s their Charcoal Grill and BBQ Smoker, a summer essential if ever there was one.
For just £59.99, you’ll have two grills for traditional cooking and a smoker style side chamber for American style grilling at your disposal, meaning you’ll be able to have numerous meats all cooking perfectly at the same time.
There’s also a removable fat catcher, and handy shelves for storing. Meanwhile, a metal rack below the main grill will keep your food warm while a further shelf adjacent to the grill is ideal for plates or utensils.
The sleek, black barbecue also comes with a thermometer for temperature control, ensuring you don’t ruin your burgers.
And it’s easy to transport, should you need to, as it features metal wheels for easy movement.
The barbecue will be available in store and online from Sunday 3rd May, however, your best bet will be securing it online.
Plus, you know, social distancing.
Moreover, you can also pur-chase an outdoor log burner, should you be in the market for one.
It is decorated with a black brushed bronze effect and has a compartment to store logs so you always have more on hand.
The description on the website says: ‘Picture this, a nice long summer’s evening sat around your very own log burner, relaxing as you enjoy the warmth and glow of the fire.
‘With an impressive design, finished with a black and bronze steel effect, this Outdoor Log Burner is sure to add that something extra to your garden.
‘When it comes to safety, you can rest assured, as it comes with mesh surround to keep the flames contained.’
These puppies are sold out at the moment but keep your eyes peeled because more will be hitting Aldi’s website in the coming days.
You’ll have to be quick though.
