MikeAqua: What's the point?  May as well cook inside.

FlyingPete: I wonder if we will ever get those electric BBQs they have in Aussie...

As for me, its new BBQ time as well, probably going the WeberQ way :)


Exactly.  Not sure the point either.


I've thought that for a while about Gas BBQ's too though.  Charcoal contributes to the flavour, the rest just recreates a hot plate outside.


I certainly wouldn't use a gas bbq inside, mine smokes like a beast and is very distinct from using a grill plate on the hobs or grilling in the oven. I have three options at home: gas, charcoal and wood. Each with their pros and cons. I probably use the gas one most during the week because its quick, but on a lazy day off, like today I'll fire up one of the others.

Yeah I have a gas hob inside and that is the reason I have had no BBQ for the last couple of years.  Have decided that its too messy to be inside and the extractor fan doesn't work as well as it could!

Trying to figure out where to put my BBQ.
decided to check auckland council for guidelines.

Seems like you can only have a BBQ a minimum of 3m away from trees, property boundary, and buildings.

http://www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/EN/licencesregulations/ruralfire/Pages/aucklandurban.aspx
"

 

On private land, you can use a small heating or cooking fire, such as:

 

  • gas or solid fuel barbeque
  • pizza oven
  • brazier
  • outdoor fireplace
  • hāngi or umu
Provided you meet general fire safety conditions."

General fire safety conditions:
http://www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/EN/licencesregulations/ruralfire/Pages/generalfiresafetyconditions.aspx

includes
"Locate the fire at least 3m away from property boundaries, buildings, trees, hedges and shrubs."

 



which seems a little excessive.  Most auckland properties would never be allowed a BBQ in that situation, and the ones that would need to have the BBQ slap bang in the middle of their lawn.

so is this just a rule that nobody bothers following?

I guess it might become an issue if you burn down your house or your neighbors house, and the insurance company goes after you personally.

Interesting... Masport look to be aiming squarely at the Weber Q market, including their pricing.

Question for those of you with the Q's.
Is there enough clearance with the hood to do a whole chicken upright (with a beercan up the jaxie) 
And can a rotisserie be used?

There are 2 ranges of Qs

The ones sold at M10 etc have a low hood with no temperature gauge. The ones sold through specialist dealers cost more but have a higher top hood and a temperature gauge (they also cost more)

In saying that, even the high top ones look marginal as to whether a beer can chicken will fit.

There is a rotisserie kit available for the Q range - it comes with an extra metal panel you insert under the front of the hood to give you the extra room - looks like this when in use.

Didn't know WH sold them. No Weber BBQ results on their website, other than a kids toy version...
