Barbecue Cover - Why Cover Your Barbecue?

24 June 2024

Despite the use of high-quality materials like stainless steel for the barbecues in our range, they are not immune to environmental influences such as dirt and moisture, which can damage the material. A barbecue cover can prevent this damage simply and effectively. It fits various types of barbecues, including gas barbecues, charcoal barbecues, kamados, and other barbecue equipment.

The true value of a barbecue cover becomes particularly evident in spring when you remove the cover and find a nearly clean barbecue. This moment will convince you of how valuable and useful a good barbecue cover can be.

The Benefits of a Barbecue Cover

  • Effective protection of the barbecue from weather conditions and sunlight
  • Protects against contaminants like dust and leaves
  • Reduces the effort needed for cleaning; keeps the barbecue always ready for use
  • Increases the lifespan of the barbecue by protecting against corrosion and rust
  • Enables the year-round placement of the barbecue outdoors

Therefore, we recommend ordering a barbecue cover along with the purchase of one of our barbecues.

Different Types of Barbecue Covers

Barbecue Cover for Gas Barbecues

For gas barbecues, we offer specially made protective covers that ensure comprehensive coverage down to the ground. Consider the size and additional features of your gas barbecue, like a large grilling area and side shelves. Our universal protective covers not only protect the barbecue but also the connected gas bottles.

Barbecue Cover for Charcoal Barbecues

Charcoal barbecues are traditional favorites among barbecue enthusiasts. Our durable, weatherproof covers are perfect for medium-sized charcoal barbecues. Make sure the barbecue is clean and cooled down before covering it to ensure a long outdoor life.

Barbecue Cover for Smokers

Smokers are often characterized by their large and expansive construction. That's why we offer specially tailored covers that can securely protect the entire device, including the smoke pipe. There are models specifically designed for the smoke pipe, as well as larger variants that envelop the entire smoker.

Things to Consider When Buying a Barbecue Cover!

Material of the Cover: The material of the barbecue cover is a crucial factor when making a purchase. It should be robust and weather-resistant to effectively protect the barbecue from rain, snow, UV rays, and other environmental influences. Materials like nylon and PVC are ideal as they are durable and offer high resistance to moisture and sunlight. Nylon is lightweight yet strong, while PVC is known for its waterproof qualities. Some covers also have a sealed or coated surface for additional protection against dirt and water. The thickness and quality of the material also determine how well the cover withstands harsh weather conditions and wear.

Size of the Cover: The size of the barbecue cover is another important aspect. A well-fitting cover should completely cover the barbecue, ideally reaching down to the ground. This prevents dirt, splashing water, and small animals from accessing the barbecue. A cover that is too large, on the other hand, can be impractical as it may catch the wind and lift off more easily. It is therefore important to know the dimensions of your barbecue and choose a cover that fits accordingly.

Shape of the Cover: The shape of the barbecue cover should be matched to the specific type of barbecue. Round covers are perfect for kettle barbecues, while rectangular or square covers are ideal for rectangular gas and charcoal barbecues. For special barbecues, like smokers, there are covers that are specifically tailored to their unique shape and size. A fitting shape ensures that the cover completely and securely encloses the barbecue, without loose ends or open areas that could catch the wind.

Attachment Options: The way the barbecue cover is attached plays a significant role in securing protection. Simple draping methods are practical but may not always provide sufficient hold in strong winds. Alternatives like drawstrings, cords, or Velcro fasteners at the bottom of the cover can securely fix the cover to the barbecue. Some covers also offer special attachment loops or straps that can be tied around the legs of the barbecue or other solid points. These additional attachment options ensure that the cover remains in place even in stormy weather.

Important! The Barbecue Cover Must Fit.

It's no coincidence that there is a tailor-made barbecue cover for nearly every grill model. The perfect fit is crucial so that the cover sits tightly and optimally protects the barbecue. For this reason, we advise using the original protective covers from the manufacturer or the high-quality alternatives of our in-house Grillfürst brand. These are specially made to optimally cover a wide range of barbecues from well-known brands like Weber, Napoleon, Kamado, Traeger, and many others.
