Owning a good, sturdy BBQ to entertain all the family and friends around is the Australian dream. But investing in a BBQ can cost you a lot of money, so it makes sense to get a cover to go with it. Even if your BBQ has a built in hood, you need to give it the best chance at lasting for as long as possible. A proper BBQ cover will provide protection from the elements such as rain, dust, sunlight, and hail, which can cause long-lasting irreversible damage. Rust is a big problem for BBQs that spend those colder months not being used constantly, especially if it lives outside and not undercover. If the BBQ is in direct sunlight all day every day, this can cause the special paint to chip and fade.
