Flat top bbq with detachable lid

Post by cakewalk » Thu Oct 15, 2020 6:54 pm

Hello. I’m looking for a good quality mains gas built in bbq that I can cook from either side - ie the “front” or “back”. I don’t need a bbq with a hood as it would not usable from the back and I have a big green egg and outdoor bbq fireplace to use.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

I'm trying to replace a 25+ y.o. Beefeater 5 burner base unit, with three x 320mm spaces, of which I cover two with a '3 burner' hood, leaving the hot plate open.

Everyone thinks 'what planet are you from?' when you ask for one without a hood, and nobody seems to do smaller hoods/longer bbqs any more.

I'm still looking, but the closest I've come to matching dimensions is from https://tuckerbbq.com.au/ It looks like Melbourne shipping is an extra $100.

They only do stainless steel so take a deep breath when checking the prices. If you have a hose, they'll put NG jets on for free.

If you're not 'hanging' it (from eg brickwork) they'll do it with a skirt to place it on a benchtop, and the back of that sticks out a bit.

They have charcoal baskets covered too - remove the flame tamers and they fit to the burners.

Please let us know what you come up with ....
