Barbeque Buyer’s Guide

It doesn’t matter if it’s the big game, a big event like a wedding reception you’re hosting or a day staying in at your place, a great barbeque usually comes in handy. Our selection of premier barbeques will help you make the occasion a lot more memorable and make you look like a culinary genius with little effort. Rest assured that when you walk in looking for the best grill for the money that each person you talk to at Olympia Fireplace & Spa shares your love of cooking over fire and since we’re passionate about great BBQ we’re not going to steer you wrong.

There are a few things that you need to know, however, before you just reach out and throw one on your cart with your groceries or lumber. Do you want to slow things down and take your time to make sure that you get that nice rich smokey flavor on some shrimp and crab stuffed portobello caps or are you looking for something capable of instantly searing in the flavors and juices into a perfectly cut filet? Will the grill be built-in to an island as the center piece of an outdoor kitchen or portable so you can move it around to different spots of your yard or haul it to the big Seahawks tailgate party at Century Link? Propane, natural gas, charcoal or wood pellet burning? Should you get the rugged powder coated colored barbeque or go with the easy to clean and beautiful stainless steel? Refrigerated or heated drawers next to the outdoor wine cooler? Side burner or no side burner? You can and will find the answers to these and any other outdoor BBQ, or smoker questions you have at Olympia Fireplace & Spa. We have helped take care of the grilling needs of carnivores and vegetarians from the back yard hot shot grilling a couple of burgers to the professional athlete who needs to sustain a 5000 calorie a day diet.

Since you should be able to depend on your BBQ, we carry the best grills from the best manufacturers, and of course, we stand behind every grill we sell with the best customer service in Western Washington. We’ll not only be sure that you are completely happy with your BBQ purchase, but, we will assemble it and can schedule delivery or installation of your grill as well.

Thank you all for a job extremely well done on installing our new Quadrafire Cumberland wood stove last year, there have been no rain leaks or any other problems. The unusual installation would have taken me at least three days with countless trips into town for different parts. The stove’s ease of operation is more than we expected, as well as the heating capabilities. We had an earth stove for years in our last house and I have to say the Cumberland is not only better to look at, but easier to clean out as well.
