Hey all,
I've been in the market for a bbq a little while now, had a good look at mitre10, placemakers and the warehouse today. Barbeques at the warehouse seemed quite a good standard, and on special now seemed quite good value for money.
My question is are the gascraft range they peddle the cliched old crappy warehouse product that will not last? or are these barbies quite good?
I'm looking at the palma model in particular, anyone had any good/bad ezperiences or otherwise?
Owned one and it was a lemon? or still going strong after years of service? burn nice and hot?
A lot of questions, but if anyone help with any feedback, that'd be awesome.
Cheers, Mark

I'm in the same situation as you mate, been looking for awhile but, and I haven't checked it out myself mate because work has been raping me in the ass but BBQ factory is in liquidation so maybe some deals to be had?

As fart as cheaper bbq's go, gas craft are one of the better options. They used to be NZ made, not so sure now..
Jumbuck ones seem to be crappy and dont last.
Just keep it out of the weather when not in use.

i've got one from kmart, jackaroo brand i think. three years old and used several times a week, no complaints at all. stainless is much easier to keep clean so worth the extra coin.

I have a gas craft 4 burner bbq with hood. Now 4-5 years old and rusted badly. almost dead. I live near the beach (lyall bay wgtn) so this is probably expected. Cost $400 so $100 per year. Requires scrubbing on the cast iron grill and the coating has come off (sometimes on food if not scrubbed). All in all I think it's ok for $400. Will replace with another $400 bbq rather than expensive jobbie. Temp control is good for hot smoking and slow cooking as well as grilling.

40% off the warewhare bbqs, ending tomorrow.

They aren't that cheap at full price tbh, like 7-800 at full price for the better looking ones, stainless steel, brochure still said gascraft takapuna, whether they are nz made I'm not sure. As far as I've discovered lately bbq factory is long gone...

Depends how often you are going to use it, I bought a BBQ in 05(Think it cost me $450)  had to bin it at easter last year, however we BBQ all year round, in the summer almost everyday and winter mainly weekends and the old thing was not covered over and we lived next to the sea.

I never, never ever cleaned it and every so often it would catch fire and burn all the crap , one day when it was on fire the temp gauge went off the scale (never worked again), the wood side trays caught fire, the food was f----- , and had to turn it off and spray the wood with water

I now have a new cheapish one, a jumbuck 4 burner bought for me a pressy from a dear friend and I have decided to look after it. After few times of  use i give the plates a scrub down and a quick wipe down.

A couple of tips to stop the black surface peeling off spray it well with oil before heating it and buy cheap cat litter to put in the tray to catch the crap, wish i had known this year ago.

Unless you want to pay mega $ go for it

hope this helps
