To cover or not to cover? It’s a good question and you’d be surprised how often we are asked.

If you’re a barbecue enthusiast and haven’t bothered with a cover until now, that’s ok. We know that our barbecues are designed to last and are built to withstand being left outside, come rain or shine.

But if you want to keep your barbecue looking like new, then we highly recommend the use of a cover.

By using a cover, you can protect the body work of the barbecue from nicks and scratches. Plus, it will keep general garden debris at bay like leaves, twigs, tree sap and bird droppings. These can all be a nuisance when all you want to do is get grilling.

Our Barbecue Covers are weather-proof protective covers. They are designed to fit and fasten to barbecues so they won’t blow away. You can select a custom-made cover to fit a specific Kamado Joe or Weber barbecue. If you are not sure which one to choose, then get in touch with one of our fully trained BBQ experts who will be very happy to assist.

Kamado Joe Barbecue Covers are black custom-made protective covers which are designed for a great fit and they protect against sun, snow & rain.

Whilst Weber Barbecue Covers come in a choice of colours: cool grey (Standard) or black (Premium) and each cover features the Weber logo. Both Standard and Premium Covers perform well, but we recommend the premium range for the best protection. It offers a thicker high performance fabric to protect the barbecue.

Weber also make handy covers for Weber’s portable Go-Anywhere gas and charcoal barbecue range. These come with handles and shoulder straps to make carrying the barbecue even easier.

So whether you have a Kamado Joe or a Weber barbecue, at Gates we’ve got it covered.

Also, as an official UK Weber World Store, this means we stock a great selection of Barbecue Covers all year round and they’re available to buy in-store or online now.
