This is a quality BBQ at a bargain price, as a gas BBQ user this is the best I've owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SystemG Have I made a mistake?
As an ex-South African where BBQing (Braaing) was/is a part of our culture and we braai several times a week, coming to the UK 20-odd years ago, I just had to accept cooking on coal was going to have to do. Long gone were the days of using a really hard, long burning wood (Mopane or Rooikrans (Acacia) would only do.
However, using coal and my usual braaing rituals, it would take nearly an hour to get the BBQ ready with coal and by which point, it was either too hot, or too cold to cook on. There is only a finite window with coal and it becomes a right pain in the rear.
You also loose the truly unique and fantastic flavour cooking on wood coals...
So even considering gas is like sacrilege and I held off without even consideration.
Fast forward 20 years and put under pressure, I was convinced to give gas a try. Purely as now with a family, we don't have an hour pre-cook and 40 minutes+ cook time anymore.
This BBQ is fantastic - it heats up really quickly and cleans well. So within about 10/15 minutes of stepping outside, you're ready to throw the slabs of steak, lamb, pork, ribs, whatever on.
Cooking on gas - well it took a little getting used to. I found you need to use less heat than you'd think (and don't forget to turn things right down if closing the lid - cremation is imminent if not as I accidentally discovered when I completely cremated 8 sausages in 5 minutes :) ) .
However, a couple of large BBQ's - 20+ guests now, I think I have it cracked.
It's also great to rustle up 2 or 3 burgers for a mid-week family dinner in no time at all without having to waste a load of coal.
But and it's a big BUT.
You do miss flavour - even if it's just charcoal flavouring....
So all the more reason to flavour things up with marinades, spices etc...
Would I go back to coal?
Still on the fence with this... I miss the flavour. I don't miss the inconvenience and cost.
Overall have I made a mistake?
Build was easy. Even on my own without help. I used my own (decent) tools though.
The quality of the BBQ is amazing. Very sturdy and solid once all together.
The cover that's included is also amazing quality - better than the generic plastic covers you can buy off the shelf. You get the feeling you can leave this outside all year and it will keep the BBQ nice and dry. However, only time will tell exactly how effective.
Would I recommend this BBQ?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Matt33333 Very good
We were really impressed with the barbecue easy to use and easy to clean the grills after using as they come off and you are able to stick them in the dishwasher. The only thing I would say is it takes a while to put together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shel99 WOW!! Very impressive
After looking at different websites for gas bbq's for ages, comparing prices and almost deciding not to bother as the summer was nearly over, I just happened to have a quick browse on the Asda George website. I spotted the Uniflame 4 burner gas bbq with side burner at a very reasonable price and decided order it. I was kept up to date with delivery info and it arrived a few days later. It took us just over an hour to assemble, but it was very easy to put together. This may sound silly, but I was impressed with how the fixing screws and washers were packed, much better than loose in bags, and even a screw driver and spanner were provided. All the fixing holes lined up and it went together very well. After buying a gas bottle and some sausages and burgers for a practice run, we were set to go. It's great! It heats up very quickly, we found that things cook quicker at the back. Just trial and error really. The only criticism I have is that you need to light the burners manually as although the pizo sparks, and the gas is coming through, the burners don't light. Not a problem though. The parts are very easy to clean. Also I was very pleased with the quality of the cover that is also included. I wish I'd bought one sooner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wysey Great BBQ for the price
My old gas BBQ failed and I wanted something that had at least 4 burners and offered good value - this fitted the bill perfectly.
Assembling didnt take too long, the instructions were very clear and coming with a cover meant I didnt have to worry about storing it under cover.
Used a few times over the last 2 weeks, apart from 1 of the burners being slightly tricky to light it has done everything asked of it

As I've always been a lover of charcoal bbq's I was a bit skeptical about purchasing a gas bbq, Having 3 kids in tow now, waiting for charcoal to get to the right temperature was starting to become a bit of a chore, so I took the plunge...... And I'm glad I did.
I didn't want to spend to much money and be disappointed by gas but this has ticked al the boxes and more
Once delivered it was out of the box and put together and I was cooking on it in less than an hr, due to the excellent instructions and the clearly labelled parts which was a god send. So far I'm really impressed with the bbq and also that it came with its own cover which was not advertised which was a pleasant surprise, and also looks great.
I would of given it 5 stars for quality but I'd like to see how it lasts t the test of time but I'm sure I'll still be cooking on it in yrs to come
