    Recommended Posts

    Can anyone tell me if Aussie BBQ's are worth takin back to the UK, are the gas bottle connection the same or can you just get them changed to fit once back in the UK.

    I remember a firend of ours bringing a BBQ/camping stove from the UK to Oz, and all they had to do was replace the regulator and get an adaptor/bushing for the gas connection. I guess it's a similar story going the other way.

    Hi, we brought our BBQ back , but not the gas bottle, as you are not allowed to ship them back unless brand new never been used!!!!

     

    I can tell you now, our BBQ is still fully packed up from when we brought it back to the UK, never ever been used or opened up, ( 2 1/2 yrs ago) so its going straight back to OZ like that, we havent used it really because we havent had a good long hot sunny day to plan a good BBQ, the summer here has been horrendous, and I didnt want it getting put out to get wet & rusted.

     

    I see you havent been over in Adelaide all that long, If its homesickness, I would re think my plans If I were you, as soon as you get back here you will completely re think again! dont say I didnt warn you. I was homesick so intensley over there & I made us all come back, and even on the plane coming back I knew within my heart I had made the biggest mistake of my life, hence why half my belongings are still fully packed in the shed!

     

    Good Luck

    I reckon even if I was going back to the UK, I'd not go back until the end of the Aussie summer anyway!

    Friends of ours moved back to the UK and took their gas BBQ. They have used it quite a few times over in England - not sure if they had to get different connections though.

    Hi,

     

    We bought a large Jackaroo BBQ back with us, and it is the envy of all our friends and family!!

     

    Sorry, regulators etc are husbands dept, but what I can say is that we use it regularly, and I don't remember it being a problem.

     

    Karen.
