Must open it this year.. do u clean the coal out after every use? A bit apprehensive as iv never used one before. Supposed to be nice this weekend may try it out.thanks


Yep clean it out, and put in plenty of coal and a few firelighters and it'll go a treat, will be smoky while heating up, but wait until the coals turn ashy/white that's when it's good to go!

These are a decent size and sturdy enough, but they do rust very easily! Spend the money you've saved on a decent cover or keep in a shed/garage.

Yeah I would say this is never worth £50. Well £43.95

Second that...I had to buy one every year due to rust.
I bought this or the b&q variant (same model) with cover for £15 at the end of the season, it's worth about 15 quid, it's wobbly and likely to rust quickly, only used it a couple of times but as a BBQ works fine, PITA to get the ash out as no hole..

I'd say at this price you'd probably be better spending a little more and getting something a little more sturdy. Or wait until the end of the season each year and pick up a bargain.. as rust in the UK is a big issue unless you bump the price sognificantly
Yep, had a couple of these, last one season maybe two, don't waste your money
Have one of these from last year. Did the job. Mine came with a cover. Had kept well outside with cover on all winter. Used it for my birthday last week.

I ordered from store, it didn't give the option to reserve.

Now seen your comments, in two minds
Have to agree with most of the comments here. If you you just want it for one summer go ahead, next year it will look like it's 10 years old covered in rust. Cleaning it is a nightmare as already mentioned.

Don't waste your cash.

I would cancel if you aren't interested, I've heard the stores are struggling for space and it could help them.
We've had one which looks remarkably similar for a few years and ours hasn't gone rusty. We do clean it after use and store in the garage.
I kid you not I've had mine around 6 summers tbf if has got surface rust on the top its been left out every year and it still works spot on

Where exactly?



Im saying that Argos normally sell this model for £35 to £39 and have done consistently every year. Therefore its slightly above the normal price.

My and my wife thanks
Great bbq, highly recommend it
Bought for ~£45 last year, included a cover and survived the winter out in the garden..... Used it last weekend for some BBQ food, looks fine to me.
I have one of these rusting away in the garden... it lasted about a year before the flimsy cover it came with got ripped by the wind, water got in and it started to rust. Combine that with the fact hot coals fall through the grid as they burn too small and then they fall through any holes that the rust has made in the bottom (and even if the stuff doesn't fall out, you have to wait for the whole thing to cool down and then pick the whole thing up and tip it all out anyway because it just collects in the drum).

I'd strongly recommend buying something better quality and better designed unless you're on a really tight budget and have a big shed or garage you can easily wheel it in and out of.

Best avoid that here. There’s never been an offer for brain cells.

Was about to say this. Used to spend £20-30 a year on a cheap BBQ that would fall apart from heat expanding the metal, or rust, each year. Spent £150 on a weber mastertouch from a deal on here a few years back, should outlive me. Still looks brand new despite being stored outside with no cover

I even got a couple of second hand ones for around this money last year, one was around 10 years old already but in great condition
have enough space in the garage too store over the winter is this worth getting if able too store over the winter?

Definitely keep a cover. Ours had been a few years with no rust. In the aged during winter.

Try putting a layer of tin foil down before making the bbq. Works every time for me. Just roll it up and chuck it after. Catches all the fat and Ash.

Such a good idea thanks!
