I've added heat because this is a great price. Even though I really don't like / see the point of gas BBQ's

Same here. Just tastes like you made it in the kitchen on a griddle pan without that lovely smokey charred taste you get from charcoal bbqs. Also I think these take those small Patio gas cans which is like £30 deposit then £25-£30 per fill. Still for what it is have some heat.

It tastes like bbq. The taste doesn't come from the coals, it's the fat dripping onto the hot surface whether it be coal or metal and then smoking onto the food.

You can also get lava rock should you wish

Yes. Agree with this. Lava rock, fat drips on, smokes, gets the barbecue taste. Will never go back to charcoal. So much easier

I have a similiar one from another company, not sure this will take lava rock. Check it has a lower grid to hold the lava rocks before buying them. I still have a box of rocks in the shed as mine doesn't hold them. They are not like a charcoal bbq, but i use mine pratically every night as it is so quick, easy and mess free.

This will get Hot!!

I'm assuming this will take the standard butane gas bottles?

You don't have to use the little 4.5kg cylinder as per the picture can change for a larger cylinder.

£23.99 for 13kg Butane Cylinder, including UK delivery

is gas bottle included? assuming it is.

The added smoke you may get from charcoal is far outweighed by the ability to adjust temperature at will and pace your cooking as you wish.

By the time you account for lava rock and smoking chips and the fact that marinades and other preparations will create flavour and texture charcoal just ain't worth the hassle.

The picture shows a Calor Patio 5kg Gas Cylinder, this takes a 27mm clip on regulator.

Standard regulator for Butane cylinders is a 21mm clip on.

Easy to swap, for £32.98 you can have a 13kg Butane Cylinder and 21mm regulator.
13kg Butane £23.99 delivered
21mm regulator £8.99 delivered

It most definitely is worth the hassle, I have no problem regulating temperature even for really long 5-6 hr cooks.

The difference in taste is incredible.

So for a girl who has just moved out and has no ideas what a gas cylinder looks like or where I buy them from can someone please tell me which one I need to buy for this please haha?

Cheers. Sounds like any gas is fine just need to swap on my current Butane regulator.

taste the meat, not the heat

any ideas on average how long a gas bottle would last? dont want something that forever needs the bottle changing.

i assume this price also includes a bbq sweep who comes around once a month, calls you "guv'na", and scrubs the dirt off??

From the look of it, it is probably best not to put the gas bottle on the metal shelf. The shelf on the one in the photo is bending from the weight.
Still good value though.

See post #11

Photo shows a Calor 4.5kg Patio Gas cylinder.

This infers it has a 27mm clip on regulator.

Easiest for you is to use Propane Gas Cylinders.



Edited by: "andynicol" 17th May 2015

Great that this includes the regulator. The window is pointless though, not sure why they bother after a few uses these black out and are not worth the hassle to clean

Ha, you made me look again and it does seem that way, but it's the curved end to the shelf (see also the tray/table above it).

This actually came up in conversation today, and I never understood how a gas BBQ could taste the same. Thanks for elaborating!

I'm very tempted to get this on Thursday, to those who own gas BBQs already, what ought I look out for in one? Someone mentioned a level for lava rocks?

Shouldn't this have a smaller rack above the main one for putting cooked food etc?

I think this is the same one here

Not all Gas BBQs can take lava rock.

Most are designed with a 'vaporiser bar' (Aldi calling theres a 'flame tamer'), this is a shield that protects the burners from the falling grease and fat.
Fat lands on the bar and is burnt off.

Some BBQs have a higher 2nd rack for keeping good warm, this one it seems doesn't.

They last a long time and the gas bottles work out a lot cheaper than charcoal, something the charcoal lot have failed to mention.

You obviously didn't read the comments above then...

Can anyone confirm or deny for sure that this can use the Lava Rocks?

Thanks

It looks suspiciously similar to this Landmann model which is twice the cost? amazon.co.uk/Lan…cue

There is a 'I am man, I create fire' attitude around BBQs.

Admittedly no lava rock on a gas BBQ does impact the flavour though.

BBQ twice a week in the Summer and you should get 2 summers out of one if you're only cooking one griddle-full of food per session.

Quick and easy cooking. .

Thanks, that's interesting. That one comes with lava rocks too. I've always been a charcoal person but it can be a pain. Really considering the gas option now. Never knew about lava rocks.

That's why I frequent HUKD. Grab a bargain and learn something.

Apparently Outback are going back to having lava rocks supplied on all their new models.

You don't need lava rocks if you have flame tamers! They have exactly the same effect!

Not true, lava rocks are better. Create more smoke and catch loads of the marinades and fat making cleaning much easier. They heat up and distribute heat better
