This is my first deal so be gentle!

Homebase are doing 20% off all garden things for yesterday and today only, I managed to pick up a One Touch Premium BBQ, Cover and cleaning tool for 171.97 yesterday in-store at Redlands, Poole.

Cheapest I can find it online is £159.99 inc del...

Weber like to maintain a high price point so to get one at a cheaper price is pretty hard to do!

Christened it last night, brill BBQ!

is this a joke?

No, I know it's not a cheap BBQ but it does come with a 10 year guarantee and you won't find one cheaper, hence it being here, cheaper that anywhere else = deal = hot = hotukdeals!

Cheaper here, and it's still getting poor heat... http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/weber-57cm-charcoal-bbq-one-touch-original-inc-free-cover-recipe-book-116-delive/925543/#post11122794

Unfortunately your deal is going to get cold, but don't let that put you off from trying again

that's only a one touch though, this is the premium (apparently better)

I dont see how the food coming out of this would be any better than a £15-20 kettle bbq? At the end of the day its a metal can for putting hot coals in with a grill on top for food. Theres hardly any parts to go wrong so the '10 yr warranty' is not very valuable and if looked after most BBQs would last 10yrs easily. Would much rather spend the extra £120 on something I can use more than 10-15 times a yr.

Saying that, for someone who has their mind set on this particular model if it is the cheapest then its a good deal but not one for me so I will reserve my vote.

...apparently not the cheapest either. voting cold...

paid £375 for my weber premium 320 (rrp a crazy £800)....its gas and has 4 burners and is brilliant......1st decent bbq after getting reduced bbq's in sales before for £20 or so.....was going to resell it on ebay for £575 but didnt bother and kept it instead

its much much better than cheapo bbq (which are often unreliable) but agree weber's are crazy money......the big advantage is the fast startup time, the 320 is cooking food in seconds and the clean up time was less than 20 mins and its thoroughly clean as everything that gets dirty can be removed for cleaning and it doesnt use/need coals

always think the non gas half oil drums are good but can get very smokey and are a pig to clean

wow that is a lot to spend on a bbq mate!

Not convinced about the gas burners though. For me the whole point of a bbq is to cook in a primitive and rustic manner rather than having a gleaming clean stainless steel kitchen in the garden. Also the smokey taste of burning coal/wood is half the point.

As an avid BBQ'r (or Griller as the Americans call us), the Weber is actually a fantastic bit of kit and contrary to one of the previous comments, the £15 kettle bbq's, even with a cover will sweat and rust to bits in under 18 months. As they saying goes, you get what you pay for and this is certianly the case. Whilst I appreciate that Weber is a premium brand, their kit is good. I am an all season griller (which means I stock pile charcoal for the winter) and I am 5 years into ownership of this product and after a wipe down it looks as good as the day I got it. Its not a bad price as most places are in the £160-£180 range

Webers are good, but expensive. On the other hand, this one's free...
