Yes it is better to squat with a barbell. Try learning to do a full clean. Clean the bar and then front squat it a bunch of times and you'll quads.Squats, Squats, Squats,

If you aint doin squats get the F out the club.
If you aint gettin quads get the F out the club.

If you don't have a rack you could try weighted pistol squats for glutes, front squats for quads and Stiff Legged Deadlifts for hammies. Pretty much covers all bases.
Alternatively you could take Rippetoe's squat rack design to a metal shop and get a squat rack made up cheaply.Cutting to 10% body fat
