If there’s one thing Brazilians like, its barbecue. Therefore, the dream of many people is to have a beautiful, functional and comfortable space to receive friends and family and prepare this food that has become a tradition in meetings and commemorative dates. There is only one problem: how do you know which of the barbecue models you should use in your home? To answer this question, we’ve selected several tips and images to help you understand which barbecue model is ideal for your lifestyle.
Tips for choosing your ideal model
First, to choose your ideal barbecue model, it is important to think about the space in which you want to install it. Do you intend to build a gourmet balcony or will it be outside your home? How big of this space do you have available? In general, gourmet balconies and small outdoor areas do not allow for the installation of more robust structures, such as a brick barbecue, for example, although it is possible to opt for a smaller version of this model.
Second, you need to think about the family’s lifestyle. If the objective is to use the barbecue only occasionally and for a few people, a smaller model is enough. However, if you use the barbecue every weekend or for a large number of people, you will need a larger and more practical model, such as an electric or a gas one.
Also, you need to think about the conditions for installing the barbecue on site. If you are going to adopt the electric barbecue, for example, you will need to provide the electrical installation in the place where you intend to use it.
Finally, let’s not forget that your barbecue will be part of a decorated environment and that you need to think about the decoration of the space to create an interesting and comfortable atmosphere to enjoy the barbecue. So, remember to choose the ideal coverings for your barbecue.

Now that you understand the basic steps that precede choosing your barbecue grill, it’s time to get to know the models currently available on the market. Therefore, in the next topics we will introduce you to the 5 most used barbecue models to help you make that choice.
Masonry Barbecue Models
Masonry barbecue models with exposed bricks are the most used in construction and renovation projects. Its structure is custom-planned, requires the installation of a chimney to dissipate smoke and its construction must be carried out by specialized labor.
The great advantage of using this type of model is that it conserves heat well and has greater durability. On the other hand, it has a higher price and is suitable for places with considerable space. Therefore, this type of barbecue is preferred for country houses.

Electric barbecue models have been gaining ground in the Brazilian market, mainly because they can be found in different sizes and shapes, such as portable versions, installed on the bench or built into the wall. The main advantages of this model are that it is easy to install, does not produce smoke and can be used in small environments.

Pre-molded barbecue models
The models of pre-molded or pre-assembled barbecue grills have a structure that guarantees speed and practicality in their assembly. These models are built in refractory concrete, which allows for the absorption of heat and the necessary strength to support it. In addition, this type of barbecue can be found with various finishes, such as ceramic and terracotta platelets.
The main advantage of this type of model, in addition to being easy to install, is that you don’t have to worry about specialized labor, as the barbecue is purchased ready for installation. However, it is necessary to pay attention to the space you have available in the place where you will be using it, as it is not possible to make adjustments to the size of the barbecue.

The main advantages of this type of barbecue are the ease of maintenance and cleaning, in addition to the speed with which it roasts the meat.

In addition, it can also be used with the lid open, creating the traditional barbecue, as this barbecue also works on charcoal.
The main advantages of this model are its versatility, which allows it to be used indoors and outdoors, as well as the economy of charcoal and the possibility of enhancing the smoked flavor, due to the effect promoted by the lid. However, they are generally smaller and therefore are not suitable for people who like to promote barbecues for a lot of people.
