The Barbeque Store

One of the best outdoor dining options in town just might be closer than you thought. 

Chiang Mai has the perfect climate for spending time outside all year round, but we can’t deny that the cool season is our favourite. Why not welcome its arrival with a barbeque? All you need is a backyard, a garden area, some poolside space, an open field, a patio or even just a small balcony. Pick up a six baht bag of ice, pop open some beers or a bottle of wine, grab a few friends and family members and liberate the chef inside of you! 

Whether you’re looking to cook up a few simple snacks or you’re out to seriously impress, it’s easy with the right equipment and a few simple tips – all of which are available at The Barbeque Store Chiang Mai. Here you can browse an extensive range of top quality barbecues and accessories, and all grills can be delivered to your home fully assembled and ready to fire up. You can even pick up the excellent barbecue cookbook, Real Men Do it Outdoors, which has the potential to turn any novice chef into a grilling extraordinaire.  

With a hooded barbecue, you can cook just about anything. In fact, it’s just like an outdoor oven, so grilling, roasting, baking or even smoking is no problem. Any cooking fumes stay outside and preparation and cleaning are a breeze. So whether it’s just a few humble sausages or a juicy marinated steak, a tasty roast, some Thai style chicken and vegetable kebabs, or even a spread of fresh seafood, all you need to do is fire up the barbecue and you’re in business. It can be as simple or as gourmet as your heart desires. You can even cook a pizza on one of these babies! 

So what are you waiting for? Take your culinary destiny into your own hands and head on over to The Barbeque Store today.
