    Our old one is about ready for the skip I reckon, so what features should I look for on a new one, any particular model or brand ?
    (just a heads up really, narrow it down a bit before diving back in to the bewildering arena of Google …)

    Weber Q200 or 100 if you don’t need the extra capacity. We’ve got both and they’re great. Last for years, don’t rust away to nothing, very controllable.

    *Awaits flaming (and smoke and a delay of 40 mins before cooking) for saying that gas is a BBQ

    It isn’t a BBQ. It’s an OGD (outdoor grilling device).

    It isn’t a BBQ. It’s an OGD (outdoor grilling device).

    Actually according to Wikipedia you’re quite wrong:
    1) In the UK grilling is cooking food quickly under a high heat – which obviously isn’t what a Weber Q does
    2) In the US BBQ-ing is slowly cooking meat over an indirect heat – this is something a Weber Q can do quite easily (and is how we use ours) but is considerably harder/less frequently done by you charcoal burners.

    You could obviously stick in your pipe and smoke it – might taste nicer 🙂

    I think you’ll find, Susan, that its one of these

    that’s been transferred outdoors. Would you expect any difference in performance from many gas hobs? 😉

    Yes, Henry, I would.

    actually according to Wikipedia…

    Have you any idea how silly you look using Wikipedia to back you up? I mean, really, it’s like saying ‘According to my my mate Nigel…’

    It’s a US website, written mostly by US citizens, written in American, and is the US view of the world, far removed from what the world’s other 199 countries inhabitants consider to be fact. According to wikipedia ‘STW’ is an acronym.

    Organisations (including schools & colleges) in the UK have been warned by the Government about the inaccuracy of wikipedia (I’ve already posted about this, search my history).

    I rate BeefEater bbq’s. They’re Aussie designed, and the one I’ve had has been going strong for about 6 years. It gets left outside over winter with a cover on, and is still looking good and working perfectly. Very well built.

    Have a look in lost property and see if someone has handed your sense of humour in.

    Weber gas – has sat outside for the last ten years and apart from some mild fading is as good as day we bought it.

    Only scrub iron grill occasionally.

    Recommend it.
