Despite the claims of TV chefs, cooking al fresco is not always a pukka bundle of bish-bosh laughs. For starters, most barbecue units are impossible to light. And who can be bothered with all this briquette and firelighter malarkey? Secondly, the vast majority of outdoor grills look like something out of Scrapheap Challenge - clanking great hulks of heavy metal that sully the garden all year round. On top of this, your common or garden barbecue is about as portable as a lead fridge.
Of course, you can always buy one of those disposable tinfoil barbecues. The problem is they're disposable. Plus they're usually only big enough to accommodate a couple of cocktail sausages and a fish finger. So how do you achieve that genuine flame-grilled taste - anytime, anywhere - without getting your tongs in a twist? Easy, you get hold of a Q BBQ. This award-winning miracle of modern science makes outdoor grilling easier than boiling an egg, and it's so portable you can take it anywhere.
Looking like a cross between the Starship Enterprise and a jet engine, the Q BBQ can be carried around like a briefcase, but opens up Transformer-style to become a stylish, stand-alone, gas-powered grill. Crafted in durable steel, the Q uses inexpensive little propane tanks that fit right inside the grill. You'll get hours of cooking time from just one tank! It also has dual gas controls with a full range of temperatures, so you can sear burgers on one side of the grill and gently toast buns on the other, just by adjusting the flame.
You won't need to faff around with matches or lighters as the Q features handy built-in igniters. There's even a built-in light, so you can see what you're cooking in the dark. The chic but sturdy Q utilises high grade gas jets, giving you uniform heat for perfect grilling every time. And, unlike rival grills, the Q BBQ boasts 105 square inches of non-stick, dishwasher safe cooking surface - more than enough for a flame-grilled feast.
Perfect for the beach, balcony, patio or park, this revolutionary triumph of form and function is a doddle to use and ideal for "can't barbecue, won't barbecue" tong-dodgers and expert chefs alike. Flamin' brilliant!
The Q Grill was winner of a bronze award in the 2003 Industrial Design Excellence Awards.
Please Note: The Q Grill uses 70% Butane 30% Propane mix gas canisters which are generally sold at B&Q, Homebase, Halfords or Do-It-All outlets and all major hardware stores. They may be described as gas cooker or blow torch canisters.
Canisters suitable for use with your Q Grill include Campingaz CG1750, Taymar T1750 and Go System 2175 but other brands can be used provided they are the same size and gas mix and are fitted with the standard EN 417 screw-threaded self-sealing safety valve.
