A good grilling...Weber Style

Tuesday 11th July, 2006
In the 10 years since i became a home-owner, I've never owned a barbecue...with good reason...I never owned a garden.

Now I have a decent sized back yard and decking it's time to do the job properly so I've ordered a rather serious Weber Genesis Platinum Gas Grill.

£100 or so cheaper than the price John Lewis wanted for the same model (and wouldn't match) this is coming on free next day delivery from BBQworld.co.uk who also managed to sell me a serious amount of accessories; from tools and skewers, to a rather nifty digital thermometer with wireless probe!

Whilst I've never owned such a unit, I have used one. My ex-wife was Australian and if her dad only taught me one thing, it was to get a good divorce solicitor what a good BBQ was and how much it improved the outdoor life. The Weber model has a high heat output and, in combination with it's lid, pretty much self-cleans after use...everything just burns off to carbon, collecting in the tray underneath. The platinum model adds to the standard Weber features by having a full stainless steel makeover...no rust on this beauty, even the legs are stainless steel...no paint.

So, all being well, I'm having my first big grill tomorrow. I can't wait.
