I have this exact BBQ. Cost me £25 a couple of years ago. It's still going strong and has paid for itself many times over :D

Sausage rests are a must for busy people I usually rest my sausage on the wife's rack, in the kitchen. thats when my sausage gets tired and needs a rest!!!!!

I actually just bought the Argos one. It is far better than the online picture. It comes with two wooden shelves on either side as well as a glass window on the lid to look in. It also came with lava rocks and warming rack in the lid for buns. I was pretty impressed considering it cost less than £40.

I've set it all up, but I'm new to the UK so have no idea where to buy the propane now. :roll:

If anyone can offer help it would be apprecaited. :thumbsup:

This weekend looks like BBQ weather.

camping or outdoor shops often stock them as do garden centres/petrol stations

they would be your best bet

alternative try your local waste recycling centre (people will often throw away gas canisters that still have plenty of gas in, and once empty you won't have to pay the environmental charge on a new canister as you can just exchange it and only pay for the gas!) they may give you a canister or sell it for a small charge (maybe £5) - i suggest you get a calor gas one as they are more prevalent and therefore easier to exchange

what sort of price is the propane then? How long does it normally last? New to the Gas BBQ scene. ;)

Got my 5KG bottle for £29.99 this weekend and cost £22.99 to fill it up. Not sure how long it will last but it was on for about 3-4 hours this weekend and the gauge on it still says it's full :)

Got one of these from Asda last year for £20 at the end of the season. Better results if you invest in some extra lava rocks, which Aldi recently had in - aids the heat distribution!

I went to a gas supplier and changed the regulator for £5, this then lets you use the cheaper red propane bottles rather than the rip off green patio gas bottles..

Nice piece of kit on the whole! (for the money)

Never been impressed by gas bbq's. Ok loads easier to cook on but never taste as good as the real thing and not half as much fun.

Agreed - A gas BBQ is just for those that can't (or are too lazy to) make a real BBQ ;-)
#14
I got the argos version a few weeks back for £36, I'd say they are an absolute bargain, I've had a few bbq's with mine and it's cooked everything perfect, great for those who can't afford the big posh one's!!!!!

For gas Bottles, there are also auction sites who shall remain nameless always have full or empty cylinders available, far cheaper than without the "hire charge" Calor make! Remember too, you can change the SIZE and the Fuel - eg. Butane for Propane, or a 7Kg for a 15Kg

NOT sure about ""Patio Gas" though, I have never used it, so check first that it covers this type (I think it is a mix of Butane & propane),. and make sure you have the right regulator for the gas you are to use, and that the BBQ has the right burners for that gas

I bought the next one up from the Argos one mentioned above (with the gas hob on the left costing £65) last week. But it looks remarkably similar to this one and I'd like to confirm now that it is the biggest piece of crap I've ever seen in my life.

It wobbles all over the place even though everything is tightened to the point when the metal is starting to bend (and I'm only doing up screws with a screwdriver so it's built from quality materials.) It took 2.5 hours to build as it came in 200 bits (and I am good at that sort of thing.) You even have to build all the gas workings which I would have thought was illegal.

The front of the BBQ doesn't really get that hot and the space underneath is only big enough to hold the rip off 'patio gas' size gas tanks that run out real quick because they hold half the amount of the big ones but are only 5% less expensive to refill. If it wasn't for the fact that we needed it in an emergency, it would have been wheeled straight back through Argos's door.

A question for you all........................

Do all gas BBQ'S need lava rock? Or can you just cook with the naked flame?

LOL :)

Looks like a good buy to me - very tempted - except that it's forcast to rain over the weekend! Bah!

You could cook with a naked flame, but that wouldn't be a barbecue!

Seriously, the main reason for cooking over hot coals or lava is to avoid the carbon deposits created by naked flames. And, of course, to avoid burning the food rather than cooking it.

Alternatively, you could use the naked flame to heat a utensil and then 'fry' or 'boil' the food.

I bought the cheapest Argos one and although it took an hour to put together, I did it all from the couch with beers in hand (read: not impossible). It does not wobble and looks great. For £39.11 I couldn't be happier! The gas fittings came preassembled so I all I had to do was attach it to the burner and dial. Didn't seem dangerous to me.

Also as I mentioned before, the cheap Argos one has two wooden shelves and a glass window on the lid. I'm sure it is just as good as the deal posted here, but I found it far easier to collect from Argos.

Slow and flimsy 01 June 2009

Overall Ratinghttp://reviews.argos.co.uk/1493-en_gb/2_0/5/rating.gif2 StarsFair

"I purchased this because my old Australian BBQ was showing its age, rusting diffusers and slow, this BBQ seemed good value but if one's labour in assembling it was priced at minimum wage it was expensive, end result seems flimsy and is very slow to cook what's worse is that only about 1/2 to 2/3 of cooking area can be used as temperature away from the centre falls of dramatically. One to put down to experience, next time I will only buy a machine that I can see and feel. It's a very insubstantial bit of kit. Though to be fair side burner works very well."

I don't know what Argos one you have because none of the cheap ones they do have any wooden shelves or a window. The cheapest one that has these things is the Richmond which is £146?

I bought this one:
WG2200 2 Burner Gas BBQ.345/0406 £39.11

This picture is not even close to what was actually in the box. Like I said the actual product has two wooden shelves and a window in the lid.


Here are some reveiws from the Argos site. There are 34 reveiws with a 4.5/5 star average.

When the wife and I were setting it up and realised it had a little window in the lid, we couldn't control our excitement - even though it was raining we had to fire it up.

Yeah, i'd like to know that too.

Also, what gas does this one take? Calor does 3 gas bottles - Patio Gas, Butane and Propane, with Patio Gas being the most expensive!

will the Argos one WG2200 2 Burner Gas BBQ. work with the blue gas bottles?

With Calor, you can generally exchange different sizes/types eg 13Kg Propane for 7Kg Butane, but not everyone seems to stick by this, and of course its very wasteful if you have a nearly full cylinder!

Nice deal :thumbsup:
#31
Mine was not the calor bottle, its a blue butane bottle from campinggaz ( i think its that) its the one i use for my stove when camping.

The hose on the bbq says on it accepts both butane and propane,

I spoke to a girl at calor earlier, who said the new regulators have been brought in as they fit the new range of green patio bottles which generally look more appealing in the garden. Plus its a mix of the gas. At which i pointed out is also more expensive, and she laughed and said "yes i but i cant say that".
She did say that if it said on the tube then its acceptable to use them and it was more just a matter of the correct fitting regulator.

So i decided i would see if the tube would fit on the regulator which was already on my blue bottle so i loosened the clip on the regulator on the bbq took it off and attached the hose the blue bottle and re tightend the clip.

Worked fine just had my first bbq on it.

I am now left with a posh little regulator (obviously brought in to make me rush out and pay through the nose for a new bottle) sat on the floor.
#32
Might add im quite impressed with the bbq (argos one) which has now been reduced down to £35

Nice and sturdy, good value cooks well, decent size and comes with lava rocks.

Only downside is that the instructions are crap and it took a good hour plus to put together, and of course the fact it has a regulator attached that seems to fit nothing, as when i spoke to calor she said their bottles come with a regulator. It just makes it more confusing.
