Best Of The Best Barbecues

Top of the range grills for the dedicated gourmet barbecue chef

If you are serious about barbecuing and regularly entertain then one of these top of the range barbecues can really help you improve your grilling repertoire. Most of the higher specification Weber barbecues have as standard the Gourmet Barbecue System (GBS) grill. The GBS can incorporate a sear station, Dutch oven, griddle, poultry roaster, waffle iron, pizza stone and wok to really elevate your BBQ food to another level. Once you see how easy it is to use these accessories and the great results you can obtain you will be hooked.

 

Many of these barbecues also have a rotisserie which really does produce the most delicious, tender, succulent chickens; as the meat is constantly rotating it doesn’t lose its juices they fall back into the meat instead of dripping into the bottom of the BBQ. We have regular demos in store and have also produced videos showing you how to use these accessories.
