Buschbeck Carmen Masonry Barbecue

The Buschbeck Carmen barbecue fireplace will conjure up a holiday atmosphere in any garden setting (even in the middle of winter!) The natural grey in the main body of the barbecue is nicely complimented by the attractive terracotta base and mantle piece. Whilst the Buschbeck Carmen requires no additional surface treatments for the duration of its working life the fact that much of the “stonework” is in natural grey means that if required the Carmen can be painted with masonry paint to suit any particular colour scheme required – extra DIY for the one you love!

The double skinned construction of the Carmen means it can burn several different types of fuel allowing you to start off cooking on charcoal and then moving on to logs or firewood when you want to sit round the fireplace to keep nice and warm! For cooking, the Buschbeck Carmen has four adjustable cooking heights and comes with a heavy duty chrome grill with plenty of space to grill on for even the hungriest of gatherings.
