Not only is the Buschbeck Ambiente a brilliant barbecue but it is also a fantastic natural fuel fireplace/patio heater. For cooking, the Buschbeck Ambiente has three adjustable cooking heights and comes with a heavy duty chrome grill with plenty of space to grill on for even the hungriest of gatherings.
As with most of Buschbeck barbecue fireplaces, the double skinned construction of the Ambiente allows you to 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
Buschbeck being the only brand of masonry barbecue to achieve the very stringent German TUV/GS safety standard your Buschbeck Ambiente barbeque will last for many years to come. The life expectancy of these barbecue fireplaces is very difficult to express but in Europe where Buschbeck barbecues are widely distributed it is not unusual to see ones that are in excess of 20 years old.
As far as maintenance goes there is little or nothing to do. If the barbecue's appearance becomes a little "weathered" to your liking, simply use a jet wash to clean it down.
