    Due to a 'mishap' on Anzac Day this year that is better left buried in the annuls of time, I have been waiting for Christmas money and Boxing Day sales to replace our 6 burner. Looking at another 6 burner, have had a bit of a look in BBQ's Galore at the Premium Beefmaster 6 burner which looks pretty good to me. Anyone have experience with these? Or can recommend a better replacement? Looking at around $600-$1000, prefer from BBQ's galore as we have a $200 voucher and they have 20% off atm.

    6 burner is huge!!!! unless you cooking a feast every other week look at:

    weber Q series - had one 10+ years now and it never misses a beat used 2-3 times a week over summer, snags, steaks, roasts, it does it all.

    Not every other week, in fact not that often at all. But when I do, yes it's a lot of cooking and I use most if not all the space.
    No thanks :)
    I did look at Zeigler's, but for the space I want it's out of my price range.

    I recently had cause to investigate new bbq's and found that bbq design has changed a bit recently. The burners are now shaped stainless tube, not cast burners (possibly driven by competition from Weber and Zeigler & Brown) . This means no need for flame tamers and is said to improve the taste of food cooked on bbq. Gas controls seem to be much better because of this move to stainless tube. The Webers and Ziggies are certainly popular and both companies seem to have earned good reputations for back up. Perhaps have a look at Bunnings, they had a impressive range when I recently visited and their prices seemed ok. Spare parts were certainly much more reasonably priced that many of the specialty franchised bbq stores.

    Zeigler is Barbeques Galore own brand so I'm sure that they'd flog it even if it was the worst... not saying it is but just found it interesting.
