Picked this up from Homebase Telford for £133. Think they had another 30% off that weekend. Not used it yet. Got the propane from b&m. They were about £60 for an 11kg bottle. Refills are £30

Refills of 11KG for 30 quid? Patio gas connector? Paid 46 for 13kg on a diff retailer a few months ago.

I believe they are the same or very similar. Homebase has its own models from Outback for the 3 and 4 burner sizes.
I see that 'Homebase' base is wood and Robert Dyas is metal. Small diff. I'd pick Robert Dyas perhaps if price similar.
Don't waste your money - absolute rubbish, no control over burners - either scorch or do nothing. Worst bbq I ever owned.

I got the Outback Meteor and I have fine control about it, not sure why this would be different?

Flogas. Think it’s the leisure gas green bottle. Was it £46 for the refill or with the bottle

46 for Calor patio Gas bottle exchange. Just because of clip on connector. Funny how in the UK there's two connectors: screw on and clip on. In other places in Europe it is just clip on.

Clearly I'm paying a premium for that 'clip on' thus any idea on how to get normal gas [the cheapest possible] so that I can use on the BBQ?
BBQ takes propane or butane. At best I'd change the adaptor but that's a 5min job.

Same product but clip on is 40 pounds [locally 42 pounds] or refill that is 34.50
Question is: how easy is to use the screw on connector as my BBQ sessions go from 40min-60min to 1-2h each time and I always disconnect and put bottle way after each session [kids around etc]

The bottle I have is pretty much clip on. You put it on and turn the clip. Takes seconfs

Is it from Calor, like the green on on the screenshot? Cannot find that for less that 42 pounds, and that is when I return an empty one.

No it’s from flogas. flogas.co.uk/sho…der

I don't understand a gas BBQ, you might as well just use your oven?

It is fine if you don't understand. It means it is not for you. Other people have different opinion, which is also fine.

Makes my 13kg patio gas cost me 40 [I pay 42 to 47 depending on retailer].
A 2 pound premium does not justify paying 60 to FloGas to exchange two Calor bottles. If I switch to the screw option it would be 34.50 for 13kg eqv to 29 pounds for a 11kg.

I just genuinely wondered if there really was a difference. Personally I love trying to light charcoal and my mrs getting annoyed its taken forever

For me with family works, it takes minutes to prepare to use and is super fast to clean [only gets a deep cleaning once a season].
It produces smoke [has smoking whatever they are called, where fat drops and get's burnt]. I put sand on the grease tray, stops the flares ups and is super simple to clean every so often.

If you want extra smokey flavour your can buy a metal box and put wood chips in it [you'll find them everywhere].
You can also make your own smoke bomb.

Before gas we almost never ever used the charcoal one, takes 30 min to 50min to fire up even with a chimney and is a bit of a mess to clean.
The Kamados style are OK and faster [but not cheap, as they are 500+ for a mid entry level].

This year we bbq at least 20+ times already. Not going back to charcoal anytime soon.
If you go for gas, go to the shop and open the lid. If it is 'light' don't buy it, it is cheap metal. If the grills are not cast iron, don't buy. That's my advice. Cast iron specially if with enamel coating is a joy to to clean. Just use a proper brush and brush just after you cooked. Once or twice a season take them and clean with soapy water and degreaser. You also clean the burners and flavouring bars or whatever they're called. I'd say a deep clean should not take more than 1h.
