Don't buy a Weber - buy a kamado, like a Big Green Egg or similar. I haven't used my Weber in about 18 months.

The Big Green Egg does everything - low and slow smoking, roasts, etc. With barely any effort it will cook at 130 degrees for about 24 hours - but it's just as happy roasting a chicken in 45 minutes.

I bought a decent wireless thermometer and a Pitmaster IQ temperature controller. Thoroughly recommended.

Don't you live in far Q ?
Must be dozens of decent restaurants there. Why bother screwing around shopping, cooking and cleaning up, especially for one person.

I know charcoal is better but I just want to cook steaks and sausages without fuss  I don't roast in a bbq but I might give it a shot
If I had anything but gas I just wouldn't be bothered firing it up

I save the restaurants for the ladies
Great Asian noodle place up the road but you get sick of anything if you have too much if it

True; but there are heaps of good places of different variety in the Eastern suburbs. The west on the other hand has very few good places.
Eating out sensibly isn't much more expensive than buying quality food for home these days.

I could live on Japanese I reckon :p

You have to roast if you get a Weber... even duck is edible when cooked in a Weber, beautiful roasts.

Weber Q huh?

They're ok but not as good as charcoal

IMO, you need both.  Cook roasts in charcoal, steaks etc in gas.

Ah, new toys! Loved the sound of this, want to have something outside for more meat dishes. Search online for Kamado BBQ, find their site, see they seem to be an Aussie company so figure it's worth taking a peek ... then their retailers section is broken and their contact us is shambolic.

Here's an idea, get your website fixed BBQ people!     :mad:
C'mon, do it!

Where do you buy these, the web site is stuffed and they don't have any stores in Australia...........

Kamado site is no good either but they do sell in Australia
