which bbq to buy?
G'day! has anyone got any recommendations for a good barbie to buy? going to get one at weekend but have seen some for stupid money,mucho, mucho dinas. not wanting to spend tooo much. also, any must have's etc?
cheers in advance and best wishes,
I take it that you looking for a BBQ means your not in Rotherham anymore?
We got ours in Bunnings before Christmas and are very happy with it. Don't know what you want to spend but ask the prices as the one we liked was just short of $1,000 when we asked the price it was on special, £695 if think it was. They didn't even know this at the till, when we told them the name of the person who we had asked they rang him he confirmed it and that's what we paid. So make sure you ask before you get to the till.
BBQ galore down on Marion road, just along from Harvey Normans have a huuuuugeee selection at great prices.
:D about $400 should be enough , get the biggest you can afford , dont worry about a side gas ring as we have never used it, the ones with a solid hot plate we have found to be the best , jackaroo (brand) have been good for us in k mart i think. good luck
cheers for the replies, will have a look in the places mentioned above. no longer in rotherham, currently in paradise but netley from next week.
Most of the big places like b/q galore ,Bunnings,Kmart Woolworths even lecornus have sales on just visit the m all and compare prices.

Although now got the big 8 burner can cook anything on them
Budget Accomodation in Marino
6 burner minimum!!
Best config is 2 flat plates and one grill plate.
Make sure the hood is nice and big - great for doing roasts in!:D:D
The one we went for from Bunnings was a six burner which is split by two hoods so it's a four and a two burner combined. It works for us as you only have to clean the part you use. Just the two of us use the small section friends over open the whole thing up.
We did look at BBQ's galore but thought they were a bit expensive to be honest. Maybe they have come down a little now.
Oh yeah, we had a family BBQ the other week and as I'm really a novice to this garden cooking game I let the Aussie Relation take over. The first thing he did was turn off the gas ring on the end and tip the unions from the saucepan onto the hot plate looked at me with a big grin and said "That thing on the end is for soup and stew, cut it off and throw it away, this is a BBQ"
Good luck with what ever you buy.
We are not in Oz yet so is it worth buying one in the UK to bring with us.
In my opinion, No, wait until you get here. You will find so much choice with size and amounts of burners etc, some even come with their own sink and taps built in!
