i guess that whys its called a gas bbq and not a charcoal bbq?

could be wrong tho

May as well cook the food in the kitchen and take it outside when its cooked.
#11
Most of the BBQ taste comes from burning the fat coming off the food, not the charcoal itself. The BBQ has 'coals' between the burners and the food which serve to catch the fat (and cause it to burn) and distribute the heat evenly from the burners.

The major advantage, though, is you might actually use this BBQ regularly since it takes 10 minutes to be ready to cook, as opposed to 60-90 for a charcoal BBQ.

Avoid BBQs with wood on them, they weather too quickly.

If you're tasting charcoal, you're doing something badly wrong .... and almost certainly damaging your health.:thumbsup:

There should be no discernable difference in taste between gas and charcoal BBQ's. The smoky taste associated with BBQ cooked food is down to juices dripping off the food and vapourising on something very hot below which causes the desired smoke. On charcoal BBQ's this will be the charcoal itself. Cheaper gas BBQ's tend to use some form of lava rock which has to be periodically cleaned. If not cleaned, they get 'fat-logged' and will cause undesirable 'flare ups' when you cook. More expensive BBQ's get around this problem by employing proprietary methods of creating smoke from the dripping juices such as Weber's 'flavouriser bars'

Did you just make that up? or did you make it up a while ago?

Burning fat causes flames which is the last thing you want on a barbeque when you are cooking.

These things should be called "outdoor cookers".


really? how you gonna get a flame grilled taste.....without flames from the fat

educate yourself mate before looking stoopid

thats the whole point of bbq's, obviosly never used or had 1 have ya

nothing better than rolling the bbq out on a hot summers day.....reminds me of my other home in australia

The fat drips off the burgers and onto the fire and as it ignites it sears and puts a smokey flavour into the burgers. It is definitely better than say grilling on your cooker and more convenient than a charcoal barbie.

I speak from experience. Unless you're going to keep it in the garage or shed for 11mths a year and roll it out on sunny days, I recommend completely avoiding models with wood slats. Wooden boats, sheds etc. are treated the brave the elements...BBQs aren't and you can't clean them very easily. It's inevitable that sausage fat etc will drip on those slats and after a few uses they look rubbish.


what about rust on metal ones....


Metal ones are generally stainless steel. My Weber full stainless has sat outside for almost 3 years now without any sign of corrosion. If there were any, the 10yr warranty would soon sort that out.


think before speaking

I'm speaking from experience, I've cooked on my BBQ over 200 times in the last 12mths...how about you?

Here's an action photo of me cooking in the recent snow:

http://blog.bowers-wilkins.com/musicclub/?p=268

I wouldn't even wanna be NEAR a wooden bbq in the snow, let alone cook on one - you simply can't get a hygienic surface on wood.

Read the thread again... It was you who was telling someone to educate told someone to "educate yourself mate before looking stoopid"....

I'm just suggesting you might like to practice what you preach.

Anyway... enough of this. It's a decent deal. For those looking for something more 'up market' the best kept secret out there at the moment is the 4 burner gas BBQ from Marks & Spencer:-

http://www.marksandspencer.com/gp/product/B0015GSDSY/

Was £799, now 30% off @ £559. This is actually a rebranded Napoleon Mirage 485. Napoleon are a hugely respected brand from Canada and considered every bit as good as Weber. Not easy to get hold of in the UK, but GardenXL do them for £885. So £559 from M&S is a bit of a bargain for those who are looking for a mid range BBQ. I guess the Weber equivalent would be the Genesis E-320 which I have seen for as low as £620 on ebay. :thumbsup:
#27
Does anyone know if this has cast iron grills or stainless steel ones. It doesn't say and i can't make it out in the picture.

Looks like the same thing but without the wood and with a side burner (and slightly more)
#29
Anyone recall the name of a charcoal BBQ posted last year.

It was suppose to be easy to light and you didn't have to wait for it to cool down , you just closed the lid/chimney and it was put out, had a funny name if i recall , and was portable

Fingers crossed........


The UK is "odds on for a barbecue summer", with no repeat of the washouts of the last two years, according to Met Office forecasters. Temperatures are likely to be warmer than average across the UK, topping 30C at times.
Rainfall should be "near or below average" for the three months of summer, the forecasters say.
However, they warn that heavy downpours cannot be ruled out.
Chief meteorologist at the Met Office, Ewen McCallum, said a repeat of the wet summers of 2007 and 2008 is unlikely.
"After two disappointingly wet summers the signs are much more promising this year," he said.
"We can expect times when temperatures will be above 30C, something we hardly saw at all last year."
http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/shared/img/o.gif


The prospect of a hot summer will cheer those who felt cheated at having endured the "dullest" August on record last year, which soaked up just 105.5 hours of sunshine against an average for the month of 165.
It was also the fifth wettest since records began with 139.8mm (5.5in) of rain falling.
It had been preceded by the UK's wettest recorded summer in 2007, when thousands of families were forced out of their homes by floods.
Then, in February, heavy snow closed thousands of schools and led to travel chaos across the UK.
BBC forecaster Laura Tobin said the latest Met Office long-term forecast was "good news, finally".
Heavy showers
But she warned: "It doesn't mean it will be dry. With the heat, we see some very heavy thunder showers and torrential downpours at times.
"Compared to last summer, which was miserable... it will probably be positive for the majority of people."

why would you be putting the food on the wood anyway....plates, hands etc should be used or even .....a mouth lol

i not here for a bleedin argument i posted a half decent bargain bbq.....for £88 if you dont want it or dont like it fine, but this is just the ticket for some people who would rarely use it

btw that is a nice bbq and commitment in the winter gets my thumbs up.....out of interest how much did it cost? ive seen some back in oz which are ridiculous, £2/3 grand, with mini kitchens attached, i just have a couple of small webers myself....1 is portable

The cover was extra with mine, but it rarely goes on. You have to wait for it to cool down before you can put the cover on...it's rarely cold enough. You also should put the cover on when the grill is wet, which 9 times out of 10 it is when I'm done cooking! A wooden unit would be ruined by now.

I married an Aussie, why do you think I'm a grill king ;)


yes the weber 1's are the top of the range but they are not £88 like this 1.....what do you expect for this money exactly?


If I'm honest, I expect people to waste my money. In my opinion, you should either spend the money on a good gas grill or not bother at all. We don't have the climate to keep a wooden unit outdoors and, if you're only going to wheel it out in hot sunny days, you may as well go with a charcoal one. Nearly all the benefits of a gas grill are having it instantly available when required, not gonna happen when it's at the back of a shed.


why would you be putting the food on the wood anyway....plates, hands etc should be used or even .....a mouth lol


Not intentionally, but inevitably it will get dripped on by BBQ sauces, blood from steaks or whatever. This soaks in the grain of the wood and ruins it, for me anyway.

If you haven't cooked in a gale force wind with sideways rain, you haven't lived. It's my ambition to cook on my Weber on top of a mountain somewhere...just for fun. Only problems being the thin air and carting the thing up there.

My Weber cost me something like £600 back in Summer 2006. That's full a 3-burner with full stainless. Looked shinier when it was new, check the pic...

Weber are indeed a top manufacturer.... but I think this is a great deal for someone who's looking for something that'll last more than a couple of years:-

http://www.marksandspencer.com/gp/product/B0015GSDSY/

This is actually a rebadged Napoleon Mirage 485. Every bit as respected as Weber by those 'in the know'. They tend to be very slightly more expensive than the equivalent Webers.... I guess the Weber Genesis E-320 is the closest equivalent which is £799 most places (although I have seen them for £620 on ebay).

Very few UK companies sell Napoleon, but the few that do seem to be asking around £885 for a Mirage 485. So £559 is a really good deal.
#39
I bought a wooden one from b&q a few yrs back and last yr ended up buying a new stainless steel one as the wood had warped, flaked, and faded. It basically looked 10+yrs old!

To be fair, the grills and unit work fine still, but i do agree with the above poster - avoid wood if possible.

For £88 this is likely the best bbq deal we'll see for a while - unhooded versions will prob pop up a bit cheaper, but i recommend the hood for better all round cooking
#40
Nice find.
I have no reason sadly to upgrade my old one which I have had for at least 5 years.
Sits outside in all weathers, no cover lots of wood on it and it is fine.

Wipe it down fire it up and away we go.

I am another all weather BBQ'er, happily sizzling me sausages in a downpour or pitch black.
Great fun
