    It is my Birthday coming up in just under a month and the mrs doesnt know what to buy me. I have th echoice of a trackball for my arcade machine which I would like or I am thinking along the lines of ditching my Weber BBQ and getting a hog of a machine with a roasting hood and stuff.

    Remembering this thing has to sit on a balcony, anyone got any good reccommendations for a BBQ?

    If you decide a BBQ let me know, my company is a partnership between Kleenheat Gas and Elgas so I can get you a ripper deal.

    Get a 4 burner, gives two heat racks under a flat plate and the grill. A side-burner is very useful if you do any wok cooking and don't have gas in the kitchen. Get one with doors down the bottom, although this adds to the cost, as it is useful for piling all your utensils out of the way and will look neater on the balcony. I have a hood and don't use it a lot. It takes hours to cook a leg of lamb but you can get all sorts of smoke varieties that you just throw in and gives you great flavours. Enjoy.

    4 will be too big for my balcony. I want to get one big enough for me to cook a few steaks and stuff for vix and I and have the odd BBQ nothing too big.

    I also do a lot of roasts especially chicken in my weber at the moment but the weber fails to satisfy when it come to real BBQ cooking.

    I also dont have gass in the kitchen but want to do more wok cooking

    Of course Tookey. The only thing is that Kleeheat have been closing their Gashouses recently and there arent any in town. There used to be one in Penrith but even that has shut now. The only other one reasonably close is Tuggerah.

    Dan if you got to http://www.kleenheatgas.com.au/_applications/household/appliances.asp?categoryId=1&subcategoryID=14 and pick a couple out I can get you a price.

    *wipes dribble from around his mouth"

    any of those are awesome but I have to be reaslisting about space.

    any of the following would work well in the area I have for it.

    - Discovery Series 2 Burner
    - Discovery Series 3 Burner
    - Balcony 2 Burner Series
    - Signature 3 Burner Series
    - Signature 3000E with Window Hood

    If you could get me a price that would be great, PM me if you want instead.
    Oh and the roasting hood is a must for each of those.


    Cheers
    Daniel
