i got it yesterday and had it built within an hour and i am still sore from a hernia operation.

The nuts and bolts come in a blister pack with a cardboard back which allows you to see everything is there and access it when you need it. The pack also has codes which correspond to the instructions. It was delivered at 4.30 and we were eating barbecued steak at 6.00.

Only criticism is the large flat black panel at the front of the bbq is a canvas patch which is velcroed on.

Apart from that it is great. Really solid and does the job nicely.

Just get a bbq cover off ebay. Most shops want about £20. Got one on ebay for £5.

Cant say enough good things about it. Despite the fact i hate argos.

Saw a similar one is ASDA yesterday for £30!

dont really get the gas bbq's, might as well do a bbq on your gas cooker, cant beat the old charcoal bbq's for tasty meat,
good deal though.

lol.. wondered when the charcoal army would comment :)

The BBQ flavour comes from the food juices hitting a hot surface.. so you could always use lavarock, which was 30/40pence a bag in sainsburys (a deal earlier this week)

The only cons I can see to using gas over charcoal is the initial cost of the BBQ itself, or if you wanted to do some sort of smoking ability, which is still doable with a gas burner, just need a smoke box

Hot deal tbh.. got one like this last year :D

Got to agree..if you are going to the effort of a BBQ.. it needs to be charcoal.. and not sausages and burgers either..!

One of the best things about being Greek is that there is a good BBQ going on somewhere in the family every weekend..! :-D

Agree IF your gas BBQ doesn't take coals.

The majority do, and IMHO theres no differnece taste-wise.

There IS a difference in the cooking though, as a gas BBQ is easier to control.


But, I digress, hot deal from me !

Most people don't know how to do a proper charcoal BBQ and smoke all the neighbours out beyond belief!

Gas BBQ's are great though and superb results can be had, chicken comes out sooooo moist and juicy.
#13
Good deal but they also have a massive charcoal/wood one for £44.99 down from £59.99, BBQ using wood is 10 times better than gas folks.

Huge difference, the gas bbq has volcanic lava and not charcoal or wood, there is a huge difference in taste if you use proper sesoned woods or even charcoal compared to gas, food cooked over seasoned oak is superb.
#15

#16

Something like this would use a 5kg Patio Gas cylinder. Available from B & Q, camping shops etc. http://www.calor.co.uk/ will list stockists or you can buy online. You'll pay approx £16 - £20 for the gas, and first time you buy a cylinder it's an additional £30 deposit.

I got one of the £30 Asda ones the other week, and got to admit that burgers don't taste anywhere near as good as my old charcoal one, although it is a lot more convenient. Can you put lava rocks or something else in these cheap gas grills to give it a more BBQy taste?
#19
Surely most people like me work. I want to just get in from work and not faff around with charcoal and starters.

With this its just a case of pushing a button and off i go!

Not worried if the taste is a little difference. If youve got kids they smother every thing with sauce any way

I personally don't think the difference is huge, to be quite honest the majority of times I've had food from a 'normal' BBQ it tastes quite burnt as opposed to a gas BBQ the food tastes better IMHO, in saying that the best steak I have ever had on a BBQ was on a 'normal' charcoal BBQ, but in the main the BBQ's I've been to gas cooked food tastes better majority of the time, and from a personal point of view, the gas BBQ is far easier to cook on, as its easier to control.

each to there own, its good for folks looking to buy a BBQ to see the plus points from both sides....

you can use any gas, theres probably very little differnece in the gas itself, but I was once told that propane burns hotter than butane (or is it the other way round ? ) so use use more as it get used up quicker ?
Patio Gas and BBQ Gas bottles burns at a lower temperature so lasts slightly longer, downside is that these types cost more.
#22
thanks for your time,andynicol
#23
Don't forget if you use a different gas then you need to fit a different regulator to the one supplied.

As said propane has a higher burning temperature than butane and is more volatile which is why butane is used in heaters that are left on for ages. inside homes.

bbq gas or patio gas is just a way of them charging more for less kg.

Im going to hack the regulator off and get proper propane connected or butane.

Butane is much cheaper but not sure on its performance.

PS i sell it.!

BY the way you can actually use a propane bottle to run your boiler! Most modern ones anyway!
#25
The propane only comment maybe due to the supplied regulator, butane use a different diameter regulator cap to connect to the top of the gas bottle. You can buy a butane cap off eBay for about a tenner.
#26
yeah sorry should of mentioned each one uses different reg

Butane.

Propane.

Patio gas(propane) same gas easy fitting and a needle.

;-) just so you can cook out side in the sun drinking beer, and not looking like a pi~s head.:thumbsup:;-)
#28
I'm pretty sure Butane, Patio & BBQ Gas bottles are blue regulators whereas the Propane Gas bottle are red ?

Tricky to be 100% right there.

Patio burners normally use butane which is the blue bottles as they provide a lower heat for a longer period. These are blue bottles 7kg or 15kg

Patio gas is normally propane which burns at a higher temperature for shorter periods.this comes in 5,6,13kg bottles

Patio gas is just re badged propane in different cylinders for a higher price. ie consumers

Retail price of 13kg propane jan 2010 price is 22.49 13kg patio gas is 24.99

normal propane comes in 3.9kg and 13kg and 19kg going right up to 47kg

'Patio burners normally use butane'
'Patio gas is normally propane'
'Patio gas is just re badged propane'


If folks were confused/unsure before reading that, they would be even more confused/unsure after.
#31
right it seems i may be slightly wrong here.
Butane actuall burns hotter but propropane regulators actually push it out at a much higher pressure and make it burn hotter than butane!

hows that for confusing.

All i want to know is can i put a butane regulator on and use butane.
#32
call your local caravan / garden center first before buying so u know how much this will cost.

great price and looks strong enough for a few years occasional use.

Maybe I haven't, maybe I have, maybe I wasn't aware it was wood being burnt.

Your point is caller.....?
#35
I just tried to post up that this has now been reduced to £44.99, but I think my post was deleted by the admins!

On another note - What do people think of this BBQ

http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/3450420/Trail/searchtext%3EBBQ.htm

It's OOS everywhere at the mo, but I wanted to know if people thought it was better than this one considering it's supposed to have a price tag of £100
#36
Regarding butane vs propane I bought a used gas bbq last week which was fitted with a 5kg patio gas bottle and regulator. There wasnt much gas left in the 5kg bottle and didnt fancy spending £19 on a refill so took off the regulator and fitted my 15kg butane bottle with regulator. It did work however the bbq didnt get hot enough and took an age to cook the food but got there eventually. I did at the time think it was because it was windy and the flames were flying around underneath rather than going straight up but now iam thinking it might be because I used the butane? I thought the only difference between butane and propane was that propane can be used at lower storage temperatures.
#37
hmmmm i have a butane bottle here. spose i could use that first then get a proper patio one.

how long you talking?

Longer than charcoal?
#38
Had some of the food on the griddles for about an hour although there did seem to be bits on the griddle hotter than others so suspect it may have been down to the wind. I'll try whats left in the 5kg patio gas on a day less windy and see if it makes a difference. It does say on the bbq that it can use either butane or propane so dont think theres anything wrong either way although most recommend propane and alot of new bbqs say use propane only - not sure why though.
#39
Thanks :)
#40
where does it say it can use both mate?

I always thought most could but then it didnt say any where?

It doesnt say it in the instruction book does it?
