    Default BBQ

    Time for a new one. Going to spend a bit more then the usual bunning or warehouse job. Never been satisfied with what I have had. Charcoal is not an option as my patients doesnít stretch the far. Anyone got any experience with high end grills? Pretty much got one in mind. But great to heat other options

    We prefer wood BBQs - but the thing to have these days it seems is Weber, who do both charcoal and gas ones.

    Yeah looked at the Weber Q. Which looked great, great reviews. But also limited to be buying Weber acccesories. Iím actually looking at the Weber Genesis series

    I know what you mean, My dragon bought one from Kmart, a monstrosity, 6 burner, side plate and burner and acres of cheap Chinese stainless steel. Looks like a million dollars but the ******* thing does not put out enough heat from the burners. Thought about drilling out the jets for the LPG burners. So we end up still using our BBQ factory Backyard 2 burner out of my camper bus, picked it up off the side of the road when we had inorganic collections. Life is too short for **** BBQs get a Weber.
    Its amazing how Potatoes give us chips,fries and Vodka.

    Get your s*** together every other vegetable.

    Well even having a few drinkies - Hey still have to finish off ALL the bottles we got in duty Free last month

    The heat as PLENTY hot enough, HEAPS to spare. In the Instructions or "hints as I liked to call them ( yes decided to read them, and play the Video are being prompted)

    After the 10 minute pre-heat - the Steaks were , Kebabs - Actually were nice this time, and sausages - not burnt and quite juicy. Will take a little bit of practice to get them right as with the weberQ you have to have the lid down as it acts more like an oven, not like an open BBQ.

    SWMBO has ideas (Hmmmmm) of doing the roasting options esp a whole chicken, roast dinner.

    Our old BBQ was a Masport 6 burner, lasted quite well around 7 -8 years, but this new one is defiantly better.

    Cant compare to the other versions, BUT as its been mentioned the reviews are all good. I have seen others who have had like Prefect mentioned - disappointed.

    SWMBO decided we needed a flat plate as well, so she got that, as well as the roasting trivet ( read rack) general-accessories/p/weber-roasting-trivet-2/

    Plod - Its a wonder you didn't hear me laughing-- She said shes got visions of coming home from work - and me saying I've got dinner all on - roast meal the lot ---- I might like cooking on the BBQ - but got to draw the line somewhere -----------Maybe

    NZ Consumer rates the Weber range as the best
