Enhance Your Hybrid Barbecue Experience With These Items

Combining the convenience of gas grilling with the flavour of charcoal cooking, hybrid barbecues are the perfect solution for those who want the best of both worlds. But a great grill is only the beginning.

In this blog, we’ll explore the best accessories, items, and ways you can enhance and compliment your hybrid barbecue for the ultimate outdoor cooking experience…

Charcoal Baskets and Charcoal Supplies

Whilst hybrid grills’ gas cooking function gives you more control, the flavour of charcoal grilling is tough to beat. To get that delicious smoky flavour, add charcoal to your grill.

Our hybrid barbecues come with a charcoal basket included, but we also stock them separately for different models if needed.

Simply place one of the items from our charcoal supplies range and let the magic happen. Our 55 piece hot rocks tubs act as a high quality alternative for lava rocks and are made from a mixture of purified charcoal and oakwood particles. Oakwood is versatile and can add extra flavour to almost any meat.

You could also use our coconut shell briquettes, made from recycled material and able to last up to 4 hours of cooking time.

Digital Thermometer

A digital thermometer is an essential tool for any grill master. It allows you to monitor the internal temperature of your food, ensuring it is cooked to perfection every time. No more guessing if your steak is medium-rare or well-done.

New Ways to Cook

With the combo that hybrid cooking offers, it’s also easier to cook more types of food. Our hybrid barbecues have a Multi Cooking Surface system, enabling you to add some new ways of cooking, such as:

Rotisserie Attachment

A rotisserie attachment is a great addition to any hybrid grill. It allows you to cook large cuts of meat, such as whole chickens or roasts, evenly and slowly, resulting in juicy, tender meat. Simply attach the rotisserie kit to your grill and let it do the work for you.

Pizza Stone

Homemade pizza on a barbecue is possible, and even easier than ever thanks to our pizza stone. Depending on your chosen toppings, meals could be ready in as little as 10 minutes. But for those who want to experiment, we have several pizza recipes to try out.


With our carbon steel wok, meals like a quick stir fry are also possible if you don’t have time for other more time-consuming ventures. You can also use our paella/skillet pan for even more meals.

Kebab Rack and Skewers

Similar to the rotisserie attachment, the kebab rack & skewers will let you cook perfect meat or vegetable kebabs. The rack keeps the food above the grill, and lets you easily rotate the skewers. Once cooked, you can then choose to transfer the food over to bamboo skewers to serve.

Grill Basket

A grill basket is a versatile accessory that allows you to grill delicate foods, such as fish, vegetables, and fruit, without the risk of them falling through the grates. Simply place your food in the basket and place it on the grill. It’s also great for stir-frying and sautéing.

Grill Griddle

A grill griddle is a flat-top cooking surface that is perfect for cooking breakfast foods, such as pancakes, bacon, and eggs, as well as burgers, sandwiches, and stir-fry. It’s also great for cooking delicate foods that might stick to the grates, such as fish and vegetables.

Smoker Box and Wood Chips

For even more flavour, use a smoker box to infuse your food with the delicious smoky flavour of wood chips. Simply place your wood chips in the smoker box and place it on the grill. It’s perfect for smoking meats, poultry, and fish. Many different flavoured woods are available.

For a recipe that utilises the smoker box, try out these smoky maple glazed turkey thighs.

BBQ Cover

As well as adding new ways and foods to cook, maintenance is also important. And protecting your hybrid grill from the elements is crucial for prolonging its lifespan.

A barbecue cover is a simple accessory that can help keep your hybrid grill looking and performing like new. We have covers to fit each of our models perfectly, with easy to use Velcro straps and heavy duty waterproof canvas.

Grill Brush

Along with covering it up when not in use, keeping your grill grates clean is essential for maintaining the quality and longevity of your hybrid barbecue. A grill brush is a simple yet effective tool for cleaning your grill grates after each use. Make sure to choose a grill brush with durable bristles and a sturdy handle for optimal performance.

BBQ Light

Extend your cooking hours into the evening with a BBQ light. The light attaches to the handle of your barbecue and illuminates the cooking grates, allowing you to grill even in low-light conditions. It’s also great for checking on your food without having to fully open the lid and lose heat.

Propane Tank Gauge

Avoid running out of propane in the middle of cooking by using a propane tank gauge. It attaches to your propane tank and lets you know how much propane you have left, so you never have to guess.

Time to Get Cooking

And there you have it, hybrid cooking offers lots of ways to enhance your barbecue experience with different items and accessories.

Whether you’re looking to improve your grilling experience by making it easier or want to take your grilled dishes to the next level by experimenting, there’s an accessory out there that can help you achieve your goals.

From digital thermometers and smoker boxes to rotisserie attachments and BBQ covers, investing in the right accessories can help you get the most out of your hybrid machine for years to come.
