If you've never grilled with gas before, the three-burner Meteor is the perfect introduction. It has all the convenience features you expect from a gas barbecue, yet it still gives you the smoky flavours and aromas of a charcoal grill.
3 cast iron burners - With three burners at your disposal you have full control over the cooking temperature in different areas of the grill, making it easy to cook different foods at the same time.
Lava rocks - Acting like flavouriser bars, lava rocks vaporise all the juices and fat that drips from the grill above, turning it into a flavour-infused smoke that gives your food that classic barbecued taste.
2 side tables - Because every chef appreciates having a little extra space for serving and preparation.
Additional features - Including a chrome-plated warming rack and a porcelain-enamelled hood with integrated thermometer.

What Gas Do I Need To Buy?
All Outback gas barbecues from Robert Dyas come complete with a gas regulator and hose. This will save you time and money sourcing this essential component. The included gas regulator (connector) is a 27mm butane snap fit regulator. These are very simple to use, and work perfectly with Calor Leisure Patio Gas bottles. Simply press the regulator on the bottle connector until it 'clicks', and then turn the black leave to the 'on' position to start grilling. When finished, turn the gas to the 'off' position, or one further 1/4 turn to disconnect the bottle.
Calor gas suppliers are available in many locations, from garages, through to camp sites and camping stores. You will need to pay a deposit for the bottle, and then each time you fill the bottle up. There are two sizes we recommend of gas bottle for our Outback gas barbecue range:
5kg Patio gas bottle (Propane)
A favourite choice of bottle size, the 5kg patio bottle is easier to handle and is ideal for smaller families and gatherings or infrequent use. It works perfectly with the included regulator, allowing you to connect and disconnect the bottle in seconds, keeping you safe, and minimising any waste of gas. The compact size means it will fit next to or within all barbecues, and it has a weight of around 16kg when full.
13kg Patio gas bottle (Propane)
The 13KG patio gas bottle is ideal for frequent users, those with very large barbecues to fuel, and large families or parties to serve. It is of course much heavier and harder to handle being heavy (The bottle weight is around 35kg when full) but needs to be refilled less frequently. Consider where you will be putting the bottle, as this larger bottle is harder to locate under barbecue side shelves or in units, but will need moving less often to be refuelled.
