Topcashback are also doing 4.2% Good reviews on this as well

Picked up one of these in my local B & Q a few months back for £45, might have been last season's stock or something. Haven't even used it yet, but with the "alleged' heat wave on the way, I'm still hopeful of burning a few sausages and burgers yet. X)

After using it a couple of times, the paint will bubble and peel, and then the rain will get in at the steel & cause the whole thing to turn to rust.

At least, that's what happened with my previous "cheap" BBQ from Argos... False economy when it doesn't last 12 months...

We've had this BBQ for a couple of years now and can't fault it. This is a real bargain :-)

It's a bargain kids

What is the point in a Gas BBQ? May as well cook things in the oven!

There is nothing more annoying than the coal BBQ cooling down when you've still lots to cook, I have a gas and a coal BBQ, we use the coal when it's only for us and use the gas when we have people over, if people want to use a gas BBQ that's up to them!

You get a flame grilled taste instead of coal and paraffin flavour also it depends on the seasoning and marinade you use... this BK instead of Maccy D's

They are also doing a set of BBQ accessories for £5 instead of £20 with this BBQ

Buy a gas BBQ.
Then you will know. Companies dont create/make them for fun.
I have found it to be the best way of cooking outdoors. Variable temperature, spit roasts using a rear grill etc. Can be done with coal/charcoal however, not as easy as turning the dial.
Taste wise, well...you're still cooking on open flame and with skill I think results can be better than coal.charcoal on a more consistent basis.

Does that cover it?

How much is a propane cyclinder for one of these?

Depends on size and location.
Google calor gas. A list of prices and stockists will appear.

can you use lava rock with this? Some of the modern ones now are just a flame

This is exactly what I used to say, until a got myself a BBQ like this one. Could never go back.

Anyways, who the hell uses coal on a BBQ? X)

It's not the charcoal that gives the food the flavour. it's the juices burning, just leave the lid down and your food will taste great. I could never go back to charcoal, if it's dry we'll use ours every night, you would never do that with a charcoal barbie.

I always thought gas bbq's were pointless until I relented and bought one. Taste is great especially if you use lava rock. Can put the BBQ on and cook one sausage if you feel like it. Always found that I had to put loads of food on to justify the hassle of getting the charcoal BBQ out

Heat from me

Coal, you pudding, your food will taste disgusting. Do you not realise that you don't actually cook on a gas flame, ther are usually 2 types the first has Lava rock which is heated by the gas and the 2nd has a metal plate over it that gets warm. The smoked food taste comes from the meat fat dripping on to the surface and either turning to smoke of flames (depends on your meat quality)

yeh get a coal bbq is you like burnt food and cancer

ill stick to my weber premium 320 that cost me a bargain 300....rrp 750

dadofwheelie

nit all gas bbqs use lava rock.. decent weber ones use ceramic...million times better as theres no mess and it takes seconds to clean

Just picked mine up from Argos so will post back later with my views coming from a REAL BBQ to a gas one!

Info... Took about an hour (just me) setting it up, no real problems seems sturdy enough.
Proof is in the food!

That's over £500. Where did you get the discount?

I've got a 6-burner gas. Only negative I have found is the flames kick up too much (especially on sausages). What is the art to cooking it so that the flames don't take over? It burns the food in no time of you don't attend to it properly.

You have hit the nail on the head DJ. You have to stay with it and keep moving and turning.
Well thats my advice.
Just gonna fire mine up now.

Picked mine up at 4 today. Very straightforward to put together but if I'm not mistaken the one diagram is wrong/very unclear for the electrode connection.

Food went down very well, much nicer taste than charcoal imo.

Not looking forward to cleaning it though, any tips guys?

Not to impressed with the cooking on mine.
Not used to cooking on a gas bbq but only the left hand side burner seemed to get hot enough to cook.
I will have another bash later in the week, if it still fails to impress it will go back.
Easy to clean take the tray's out and and a quick wipe and they are done, the rest of it just had a quick clean with a cloth.
The electrode conection for the side plate is on the fitting for the side plate not as it states on the main burner as it would not reach anyway.
At the moment I would say 5/10 but I need to give it another bash.
Any tips ?


UPDATE....
Tried it again this time much better, I kept the lid down a little more and that did the trick.
All food cooked to perfection.
Now I would say 10/10

YES LADIES, MAN UP AND USE COAL!!! AGREE 100%!

I picked this up yesterday and need to get some gas. I understand it needs Propane but does it matter what size? I'm assuming Patio Gas wouldn't work too?

A few things.
Don't buy cheap sausages - they contain too much fat.
Use a high shelf if available, low heat, lid down.
I turn mine roughly every 2 -3mins.


Total time around 10-15 mins.

Takes a little longer than putting them over direct & close heat however, they cook, evenly (not black), and properly with most of the juices remaining.
Always check they are cooked properly though and leave a little longer if required (dont want to get done for causing upset tummies).
