It's cheap because they're getting rid of old stock.

Outback barbecues' stainless steel burners disintegrate far too readily - the newer models have changed to cast iron burners.

SS burners are £20 - £25 each to replace. Personally I'd pass on this one.

A stainless steel burner... disintegrating? Really? I doubt it.

My opinion aside, quote from the site:

3 x cast iron burners.

Missed that bit eh? http://www.easyfreesmileys.com/smileys/free-rolleye-smileys-323.gif

oO Disintegrate? From what I've read stainless steel lasts longer as it does not rust as readily as cast iron. Cast iron holds the heat better.

These are cast iron.

5.05% TCB also available. £9.95 delivery applies to any named day delivery including next day if ordered before 2pm. 8.5/10 score from 31 on Reevoo. Cast iron burners. This is the hottest deal by a long shot around today for this quality BBQ. Have some heat.

I've had 2 of the more basic Outback BBQ's and they're utter rubbish, why I didn't learn the first time I don't know. The 'stainless steel' gas grill burner rusts away in about 2 years, both of them have done it and everyone that reviews them says much the same. I don't care if this model has better cast iron burners, it'll still be crap because of the scant disregard Outback has for qaulity.

Get a Weber, don't even think about wasting money on an Outback.....if you do get an Outback, remember my words when it all goes rusty and you wonder how stainless steel or zinc or whatever they use still managest to rust!

They do rust, they're incredibly poor build quality - both of mine have rusted and I'll never buy another Outback BBQ ever.

Can you point us in the direction if the equivalent or better specification Weber BBQ that is the same price mark today?

Also noteworthy that this model is currently selling at £299.99 on that Amazon link!

Thanks - this looks good, I've gone for one. I was eyeing up this one posted on another deal here:
http://www.bbqworld.co.uk/outback-meteor-red-4-burner-gas-bbq.asp?gclid=CN7E6O6zz7gCFQTMtAod_V0AfQ

But this seems to have the same size cooking area. You lose a burner and a sider burner, but it's £60 cheaper.

I'm not too sure on if the wood frame will last, but we'll see! Thanks for posting.

Brolion, no I can't find a comparable Weber for similar price to be fair, but from my perspective at least, I'll be spending more to get a Weber (or similar) rather than saving money but replacing every 3 years due to rusting to bits.

It's all relative I guess, horses for courses etc.

Great price. Ive been looking for a good deal for a while so i can assure you all that this is!!
