The brazier is barbecuing in its simplest, most basic form. Consisting of a charcoal pan, a BBQ grate and little else, the brazier BBQ is best suited to high-heat cooking over direct heat. Many braziers have no ventilation system whatsoever, while others feature vents that are not adjustable at all, making heat control difficult. The advantage of a brazier is portability. They are small and light and allow you to barbecue virtually anywhere. For some quick burgers, sausages or wings in the great outdoors, it’s hard to beat the simplicity of a brazier.
