Barbeques and cooking - you know during these very difficult times we still have the outdoors and Barbequing is an Australian icon that should be used more than ever to eat healthy
You may think that purchasing a new Barbeque is an easy task, and to some it is, but to the most of us it can be quite a challenge……….
All these questions and more are hardly ever thought of when you go out to buy a BBQ.. So take this check list with you, ask yourself these questions before you go out and again when you are looking at buying one, it may help you to make the right choice.

This is taken from my book, but I have updated it a little so that it makes it more ‘user friendly’:

|Gas / Charcoal||small cooks for 2-6||Kettle or hooded||budget Conscious|
|$199 - $400
(Last 2-6 years)
|Gas||small to medium||(Flat) all plate||'clean-easy' people|
|$500 - $1000
(Last 3 – 10 years)
|Gas||medium to large||Plate Grill hood||average family cooking|
|$1000 - $5000 plus
(Last 5-10 plus years)
|Gas||Large / Gourmet||Plate-Grill-hood||For serious BBQ cooks!|
All the above are just guides, remember that some BBQs will last longer than others, stainless steel BBQ’s do not last longer, they may look good but they do require looking after when outside, they are NOT made of marine-grade stainless steel unless they say so.
Any BBQ’s life cycle is dependent upon how well it is looked after and how well and regularly it is serviced.
