As winter approaches, it is necessary to protect the various equipment and outdoor furniture such as garden furniture, the pool, and in particular the barbecue, knowing that this material often requires a significant investment. Whatever the type of grill used: gas, electric or charcoal barbecue there is nothing more effective than a good BBQ cover. The use of this accessory has many advantages if only to ensure the longevity of the barbecue. Here are some important tips for choosing the right tarp without making a mistake.

What is the best barbecue cover?

Finding the best barbecue cover may seem complicated and, to help you get started, I’ll briefly explain those things you have to look for to make sure you find the best of all, that protects from the rain, dust, sun, snow and ice, pollen and more.

In the case of covers, the first thing you have to check is the material, which can be polyester, which is very easy to clean and dry, it is super light and also serves for any type of weather. Then you have vinyl, which stands out for being very resistant to water, although you must choose something of 12 gauge at least. Otherwise, they are easily damaged.

The last one is canvas, a super resistant material that offers a lot of protection. In fact, it is used in shoes, tents and even in boat sails because of its durability. Apart from that, it is quite cheap and can have resistance to fire and water.

Other things you should look for include an internal liner resistant to dust and mildew, preferably made of PVC, nylon or polyester; the durability since any cover must be able to be used for a long time without breaking and must resist discolouration, protect against dirt and even should be a bit heavy to be wind resistant.

At the same time, in case the cover is not so heavy and you think to use it in a garden or terrace with too much wind, there are also usually covers with easy fastening straps. Finally, make sure that it has good ventilation so it does not trap moisture and oxidize the surface of your BBQ.

Take a look at my comparative list of the best in the market.

BBQ cover

Why use a BBQ cover?

The barbecue cover is an essential accessory to protect any outdoor cooking appliance from bad weather or simply from prying eyes! It allows you to keep your barbecue safe: rays of the sun of pollution rain and wind dust and other dirt snow and hail: especially if your barbecue is still wintering outside frost: even a stainless steel barbecue grill can be subject to degradation when it is often exposed to a too low temperature.extreme temperatures.

Before opting for a cheap barbecue cover, you must pay particular attention to certain characteristics, starting with the material with which it is made.

Which material to choose?

The effectiveness and longevity of a barbecue protective cover will essentially depend on its manufacturing material, of which here are the main models available on the market and on the Internet.

PVC or vinyl BBQ cover

Ideal for medium-sized planchas and barbecues, the PVC or vinyl protective cover comes in the form of a honeycomb. It has the advantage of being very light, easy to store and waterproof within certain limits. Indeed, a few drops of water can seep in the event of heavy rain. It is, therefore, a minimum protective accessory that does not keep for many years. Given these few drawbacks, its price remains affordable. If you want to buy such a model, a gas camping barbecue cover will be an excellent choice.

Polyester BBQ cover

If you are looking for a gas or electric barbecue cover for better protection against abrasion and shock, a model made of polyester will be perfect. Coated with polyurethane, this material is water repellent to not allow any drop of water to penetrate inside, unlike PVC. Among other things, it allows better air circulation, thus preventing the appearance of mould, deterioration of wooden structures, or even rust on certain untreated steel materials. On the maintenance side, a simple spray of water is enough without having to use other cleaning products.

Waxed BBQ cover

Highly recommended in cold regions and during winter periods, the tarp for barbecue in waxed canvas has an insulating property. It is resistant to impact and wear, waterproof and more protective than PVC, but it has the disadvantage of being too heavy. In all cases, such a protective cover guarantees a long service life and is easy to maintain.

PEVA cover

Slightly close to PVC, Polyethylene Vinyl Acetate or PEVA is a robust and more environmentally friendly material. It is in fact free of chlorine and easily recyclable. Among the models we presented above, this one is the most expensive, around 60 euros.

Choose the size of the barbecue cover

You don’t buy a barbecue tarp at random. In addition to the type of material, the size of your cooking appliance must also be taken into account. There are generally 6 sizes of barbecue cover on the market that should be remembered. Classic: 140x60x100 compact: 71x38x107 cm L: 122 x 61 x 105 cm XXL: 143x63x103cm XXL: 153 x 63 x 102 cm large barbecue cover: 171x62x106 cm.

Before choosing the cover best suited to your cooking appliance, you just need to refer to its size and opt for a slightly larger model so that it is not too tight. By doing so, you will be able to remove it more easily after use without risking tearing it.

BBQ accessories

The tarpaulin is unfortunately not the only accessory you will need for your bbq. To prepare your meals with family or with friends, provide a large barbecue grill as well as a suitable BBQ tool set.
