Ho ho.
I can see this wasting time and fuel, much as I'd like to get one.
I paid £300 for this last year thinking I'd got a good deal, so this is a bargain ! Have some heat
Was the last one boxed?

Yes it was
Gone
Can get some decent bargains at Homebase, it's just what stock your local store has left.

I picked up a Weber Premium cheap
Another Wild Goose Chase?

Check your local store before venturing out?

Not likely to be many about especially at this price?

I suggest you do that, as homebase/Bunnings do not seem to have clue about stock. Speak to someone on the phone, wait,............then get cut off,or don't get a comprehensive answer.
But, if someone finds one in s.e. London, please let me know.

Comprehensible!!

This is an amazing BBQ - I have had it for a couple of years and have cooked everything from the standard burgers and sausages to roasts and even fried eggs - use it all year round and temperature control is amazing as you can turn burners down, close lid and cook slowly if you want to.
This price is incredible...if you can find it...
None in Chatham
None in Doncaster
I'm picking one up from WALTHAMSTOW branch. They have 9 more in stock after mine. Happy shopping
bsadak - have you collected yet and can you verify how many are now left in Walthamstow?

I'm nearly an hour from there and can't get the store to pick up the phone to check on stock levels. It's a loooong way to go to find them all gone!
Do you have a product code??? I got asked for one when calling up! Would be really helpful thanks

Any more left in Kent stores?

Hi, I've collected mine. I've posted a pic of my receipt above. When I called, I had no issue getting through. They told me they had a total of 10 in stock (including the one I purchased).
You're a star, thanks.
I can't find them anywhere!! I've tried: Reading, Bracknell, Maidenhead, Farnham, Newbury, Southampton HE, Bristol. guess I'm too late!! Oh and Edit: I forgot Basingstoke in that list too....

Picked one up earlier from Bath store and they had a few left. Marked up at £299 but went through the till at £124.??
If any one wants a real cover then this place has them for £25 free delivery. outbackbbqshop.co.uk/pre…tml

Thanks for the heads up about Bath - got one!! Was just about to post product codes but you beat me to it! 306765 is the top level prod code but I've been told that people won't find it using that so use the *408, *409 ones as Mark says

They managed to find it on their system for me, but confirmed it was £299. Couldn't scan as the box was not nearby Do you mean they can only find the BBQ if they use the *408 and *409 - OR do you mean only the discounted price will appear with *408 and *409 ? It makes a big difference to me, as they had stock, were just adamant it was not reduced.

Each box goes through the scanner, 1 is £64.?? The other is £59.?? Bath had theirs marked up at £299 on the yellow label but went through the till at the right price and even when I called them that's the prices they gave me. You need to tell them there are 2 boxes.

I've built mine and the quality looks good. Decent thickness steel and the finish is good. No reason to see why it won't last a couple of years, my old one from Homebase has been left out for 4 years with no cover and it's only because I managed to grab this one that I've replaced it
There aren't many in stock but I wonder if this cover works too? Says it's for the meteor - £9.93...not sure if the quality is the same?

Hi can someone explain what you mean by two codes & two boxes? I rang today but they wanted codes. Do I need to give either code or both?

I tried getting one when I brought my bbq but despite showing 11 in stock they couldn't find any anywhere.
If anyone dors does find some actually in stock, please let me know

You need to give them codes 314408 and 314409 for the specific 2 parts you need to buy - they'll show as £299 but when scanned they drop down to the £124 price. If they search the header code it won't bring up any stock it'll just show 0. From the various conversations I had with many, many branches (!) they explained sometimes they have 1 part and not the other due to returns/missing parts. They did confirm (though not sure if this guy was just particularly helpful or whether nationally) that if stock of 1 part is at a nearby store and 1 part at the store you're in they can get it transferred across. No idea how long it takes though. Also make sure you ask them to check the warehouse as this is last season's range so they might not be out on the floor. Good luck!
Checked Branksome and Christchurch who both show stock, but nothing there. Best to phone up before and ask them to check and reserve it!
Anyone come across one spare box in the Midlands? Got one reserved but only have one box, hoping to match it to another!!
