The iLoveMyBBQ.com Top 5 Best Gas BBQ’s for 2011
We are getting more and more questions about which BBQ’s are the best, gas or BBQ, which is a whole new post in its own right but I thought it was about time we reviewed our Top 5 Best Gas BBQ’s as the last one we did was 2009! Wow, how time flies.
As I frequently say, we are massive fans of charcoal BBQ’s but I can see why so many people favour gas BBQ’s. If you have a big family, use BBQ’s multiple times per week and need your food grilling fast, then BBQ’s are probably best for you and your family.
That being said, we have twins on the way and I don’t think this will make us switch to gas, but never say never!
Moving on, based on our experience and having had a play with many gas BBQ’s, here are our Top 5 Best Gas BBQ’s for 2011.
1. Weber Q220 Black line Gas BBQ & Stand (Amazon £289.00)
One of the new 2011 range of Gas BBQ’s from Weber. Why does it get the number one spot, well, it has everything! The Q220 Black Line BBQ from Amazon has a huge 206 inch grill, cast iron lid and cooking grill and is possibly the nicest looking gas BBQ currently on the market. At £289.00 it is for the serious griller or those who want a BBQ that will last them for life. If you have a large family to grill for, this is the gas bbq for you.
2. Outback Omega 250 (Amazon £144.00)
A great entry level BBQ for gas fans but it is also built to last thanks to it carrying the well resepected Outback branding. The cooking area is 50×36 cm and it even has a side burner. A real bargain in the gas bbq world.
3. Australia 200 Series 3 Burner Roaster Gas BBQ (Amazon £249.99)
I picked this one for a couple of reasons. One, I had a go on an Australia Gas BBQ as part of a testing day and found it to be one of the easiest to get going (in terms of fiddling about) and secondly, it specifically has tools for roasting joints.
A 64 x 49 cm grill space is also a bonus as are the three burners.
4. BillyOh Gas BBQ Tasman 300 (Amazon £63.90)
A nice, affordable and cheap entry level gas BBQ from BillyOh. This gas BBQ does the job, has two burners and I picked it because it comes with the kit.
It comes with regulator and cover and as I say, is a nice affordable piece of kit.
5. Outback Excell 300 Gas BBQ (Amazon £149.99)
Another new season BBQ and this one is from Outback who make great gas BBQ’s. A 50 x 38 cm grill means that this is not the largest gas bbq on offer but in my eyes it is the prettiest.
Don’t be worried about the eye catching modern design though, it is still a very powerful gas bbq and will do brilliant for the average sized family.
6. Weber Summit S670 Gas Stainless Steel BBQ (Amazon £2849.99)
Ok, so this one was more of a giggle but… if you have won the lottery and have watched MTV Cribs, this is the Gas BBQ for you!
