Buying a barbecue seems like something you'd do in the warmer months, but by making the purchase in advance you could save as much as £76.

Blacks, Go Outdoors and Millets have each slashed their prices ahead of Black Friday and there are sizeable savings to be made. If you're in the market for a BBQ, the HI-GEAR Corvus Fire Pit has been reduced from £70 to £24.

The compact fire pit is said to give "added warmth on cool evenings" and has fold out legs for easy storage. One happy customer said: "Great portable unit. Solid construction and good cooking".

Alternatively, Millets is selling the HI-GEAR Classic Kettle BBQ (57cm) for £43 (down from £100). The product is said to produce everything from "flame grilled burgers to perfectly grilled vegetables", and one customer said: "Absolutely love my new BBQ, it came within days and well packaged.

"It did take me a while to put together but it was all worth it in the end. I’m so happy with my purchase even better it was half price. Thank you! Highly recommend!"

Another option from Millets is the Weber Mastertouch GBS Charcoal Barbecue which is in the sale at £234, reduced from £310. A description online reads: "The ritual of charcoal barbecuing meets the innovative features, convenience and overall wow factor of the Master-Touch charcoal barbecue".

You can even use it to cook breakfast, make stews, or prepare a pizza. One shopper said: "Love it, the best BBQ we ever bought. Cooks like a cooker, amazing value for money".

There is also the Cadac Grill 2 Braii BBQ from Go Outdoors which has been reduced from £145 to £69. The pack away BBQ is said to be "perfect for griddling or frying meat and veg on summer camping trips". One reviewer said: "A good BBQ which cooks the food well and without it being a pain to set up.”

Go Outdoors also has the Weber Smokey Joe® Premium Charcoal Barbecue (37cm) - currently £59, down from £103 - which is described as a "sturdy portable charcoal BBQ that's great for urban cook-ups and outdoor feasts". One customer said: "This quality little BBQ is perfect for days out, taking down to the beach, having a BBQ in a field somewhere, and an overall compact enough to not take up loads of room in the car.
