    I've noticed recently on Amazon that if I'm not using Parcel Motel the end price can be a bit higher because of VAT. That could explain the difference.

    Yes the vat difference brings 7.96 to 8.15 if it is 20% vs 23%, not sure if current vat rates are lowered to promote business?

    You can use this site to see price histories.

    If you are in no rush to get an item it is really good, as you can set your target price and it checks it daily and you get an email if it has dropped. It is not flawless though, sometimes there are lightening deals and it does not pick them up, and so they also do not show in history. This seem to be what is going on recently too, the big price drops are not detected. But you can see it does go down to 7.60. It is £13.84 at the moment

    Irish VAT is temporarily 21% so the price difference is less noticeable.

    Hey All. Great thread this. I just bought my first proper and also first gas BBQ. You would laugh if you saw what i came from.

    I ended up with a Landmann Miton 4.1. I've just got the patio gas (propane) cylinder today but before i hook it up i noticed that some people say you should season cast iron grills. I believe these are enamelled cast iron. Do i still need to season them with oil before and after or do i just keep them clean and not worry about them rusting etc?

    We never seasoned ours, I think they just become seasoned as you use them. Brushing them with a little oil before using them will help stop food sticking. Mr Dizzy turns the heat up full for a few minutes before each use and goes at the grill with a BBQ brush to clean it.

    Not sure it made much difference but I ran half an onion on a fork over ours. Seen it on some YouTube video

    Does anyone know do Weber run black Friday sales normally. Thinking of getting the Weber Spirit II but am not in a rush.

    I see a good few people seem to have this grill, how are they finding it? Worth the money?

    I’ve got some in homestore & more before.

    I have a 4 burner bbq:
    - Left and right burners open fully and center ones off for indirect grilling (350-ish F temperature).
    - Rubbed ribs with Carnivore rub orange (for pork) from Higgins butcher (you can buy online, the dark one for steaks is awesome too but today I didn’t use it for the steaks)
    - Ribs meat side down for 30-ish minutes
    - Bone side down 30-ish minutes (sprayed with apple juice on meat side generously when turning ribs)
    - Placed ribs in a large Pyrex container with some apple juice in the bottom (just a few mm), sprayed meat side generously again with more juice, placed some butter on top of ribs and covered everything with strong tin foil.
    - All burners turned on to minimum, placed container on grill and grilled for one hour-ish
    - Opened everything and checked done-ness with a fork (fork goes in and out effortlessly)
    - covered ribs in bbq sauce and placed ribs on grill with burners in minimum
    - left for 10 minutes in grill
    - take it out, rest 10 minutes and eat!

    Are they not supposed to be pretty crap?

    What would be recommended instead of lava rocks?


  • Registered Users Posts: 933 ✭✭✭ cubatahavana

    I’ve nothing on my bbq and food tastes amazing. Just the burner covers that help vaporize the drippings. Lava rocks are usually very porous and can soak all the juices, not vaporizing them properly. This can help carry today’s steak flavor to tomorrow’s sea bream. I had some years ago and hated them.

    My opinion only

    Different set up. Your grill has some sort of flavour bars, vaporizers or covers. Older grill designs relied on rocks of some sort.
    On an older design grill of mine I preferred ceramic stones that I found in tkmax or somewhere to the lava rocks that came with it.

    Thanks a lot for that, I will give that a try!

    Happy sunny Sunday!


  • Registered Users Posts: 933 ✭✭✭ cubatahavana


    Thanks a lot for that, I will give that a try!

    Made ribs again today. I cooked all the time in indirect (295-350 grill temperature) fire this time, including when they were covered in foil until after applying the sauce, then I switched on all burners to minimum.

    They turned out better than the last time

    Got a present of a new really decent barbecue- step up from my €150 previous edition. Curious about storing it. Do most people just leave them out the back patio/garden under a cover? No incidents of thieving or anything from back gardens like you hear re: bikes for example? Any help or advice or what other people do be great.

    Have a garden shed for the winter but be a nightmare to have to drag it in and out as plan on using the bbq a lot.

    Buy a good cover. Nothing from woodies and the likes. Got one from them and it ripped in less than three months.

    I bought this one a couple of months ago (Grillman Premium BBQ Grill Cover,... https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07QV3G7LX?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share) and it has been fantastic with plenty of windy/storm days and as well with bad rain/snow. My bbq stays outside all the time (covered, of course).

    I wouldn’t worry about thieving. BBQs don’t shift as well as bikes and are very heavy!

    I'm going to make my own for my Kamado bench.
    Its approx 2.4m x 500mm .

    Pattern & sewing I can handle but what material ?
    I'm thinking of getting one or two big ground sheets or tarps etc .
    Any other suggestions ?

    I got a quote for a custom made one from kover-it.co.uk and it was £250 :eek:
    Almost as much the bench cost to make!

    I now store ours in the shed for the late autumn/winter/early spring when the rain is at it's worst. Heavy cover from Home Store & More when it's outside.
