Hopefully the weather will be getting warmer soon and we can get outside more. I want to upgrade my barbie and am looking for recommendations. I want to stick with gas for the convenience but this time want to get a higher-end model that will last, get it plumbed in so I don't have to bother with gas bottles, and am considering a rottersierie for special occasions. Other musts would be a glass panel hood, temperature gauge, easy to clean. Don't really care about side wok burners, not sure about IR back burners, and I probably grill more than I roast but want to do both.
I got a Beefeater 15 years ago and it's still going strong. I think that's a pretty good recommendation. I've replaced the plates on it and the burners, and the ignition hasn't worked for the last few years, but I think its been excellent and I will happily buy another one.
A bloke I worked with had an axe like that, it was handed down to him from his Grand Father, it'd been fitted with an new axe head once, & gone through 7 handles. He swears that it's the best axe he'd ever had, & the best axe ever made.
Mind you, he could spin a story out of nothing, so I'm betting that it was the only axe he'd ever had, & it's been sitting on his mantle piece from the day he got it.
