    I want to get out of the habit of just throwing every piece of meat imaginable on to the BBQ and then dying afterwards. That's why I went for the whole chicken idea.

    Typical British BBQ always seems to be:

    Sausages
    Burgers
    Chicken
    Steak
    Ribs

    I mean who the fuck would do that normally in a non BBQ situation. Mental :D


    My gfs dad does an amzing BBQ and has the only way to describe it is lamb chunks in a mustardy glaze and chops in another amazing sauce. Stuff tastes amazing and all done of some shitbag BnQ coal BBQ!
    Im not a fan of gas atall.

    I've just found this, it's a little more than I'd ideally like to pay but I'm sucker for a bargain. Does anyone know if it's a really good one?

    I've never used a gas barbecue before, do they produce better tasting food than coal barbecues?

    No, but they are ready to cook on in, like, 2 mins.

    Cynics (like me) might suggest you might as well cook it in an oven. But at least it's an outdoor oven.

    You still get the smoked flavour from the fat hitting the hot coals...
    For indirect cooking of a chicken that might not be a factor.

    I have a little gas bbq which gets more use that the charcoal one because it is ready to cook on quicker. But it suffers because I can't adjust the grill height and I usually get too many flare ups even on a 'low' heat.

    I'm going to try making home made Pizza on the BBQ tonight, anyone else ever tried?

    Coal BBQ? Sounds like a recipe for burnt pizza dough to me.

    I haven't tried making pizza but you'll need a pizza stone of some kind. I've got a ceramic one but not used it yet.

    Will it even work? The heat would be coming from below only

    Ooops, sorry.

    Yeah but everyone knows that Gas BBQs are useless and a waste of time :p

    Having now used mine, I'm now a convert! It's ace, barbied 3 nights on the trot, easy as. Won't do anything fancy, but for your bog-standard fodder, it's perfect.

    You don't even need a pizza stone. You can just put foil over the grill and do it once it's been going for a while.

    They're tasty and that, but I found they taste pretty much the same as if you'd done them in the oven.

    Never tried it with chips. Also it was on an open, direct bbq so you'll get a more bbq flavour if you're using a Weber.

    Pizza needs a lid on the BBQ I think, to ensure top cooking.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    so this is the weekend i'll be building our john lewis gas bbq!

    one thing though, trying to order a cylinder and on the john lewis website it says its a "propane gas bbq with a fitted hose and regulator".

    does this mean i can nab any propane cylinder off the interweb? most say they have a 27mm "clip on" fitting...

    interweb because it means i dont need to talk to anyone on the phone... :)

    theres a site i found bbqgaslondon or the calor gas website both which deliver locally

    i was more wondering about the 27mm fitting, although there doesn't seem to be any other type of fitting so i guess i have to assume it fits...

    You can get gas cyclinders at places like Homebase as well. You have to pay a deposit.

    Edit: I would hope you'd got yourself a cyclinder by now - just noticed the date you posted! :o)

    For those who are advocates of the indirect, low and slow method:

    I'm doing a pulled pork with a three kilo shoulder on Saturday - approximate cooking time is five hours. Advice please!

    My question is, how often do you need to replenish the charcoal to maintain a steady temperature?
