Barbecue lids are necessary to protect food and keep the coals hot or the flame going when it is windy or raining. In addition to basic hinge type lids that are available on most inexpensive barbecue grills, there are flange sealed and removable lids.
In order to help your customers find barbecue lids on grills that fit their needs, keep these suggestions in mind:
1. Accommodate customers who want to use BBQ lids only when absolutely necessary.
2. Appeal to customers who want to lock all of the smoke and flavor in the grill.
3. Make it easy for customers to find BBQ lids accessories.
Sell grills and smokers with removable BBQ lidsSome grills and smokers have completely removable BBQ lids. Grills with a removable lid are ideal for customers who want an open fire grill when the weather is nice. If it gets too windy or begins to rain, the customer can easily put the lid on without having to adjust bolts or screws. If space is a consideration, you can compile a directory of grills and smokers. Include a BBQ lids list in this directory so your customers know what type of lid is on each grill.
Offer flange sealed barbecue lidsCooks who are serious about barbecuing will probably want grills or smokers with flange sealed barbecue lids. These lids completely seal the grill or smoker to keep the smoke in and heat the food evenly. Many of the grills and smokers with flange sealed lids are large.
Stock replacement parts for barbecue lidsThe handles on BBQ lids weaken over time. Offering a variety of replacement parts, including handles and hinges, allows you to service customers who want to keep their grill but need to change certain parts of the lid. It may be helpful if you make a replacement parts barbeque lids list so your customers will know what parts will fit what lids.
