Overview

This 4-burner version of the popular Outback Meteor Gas Barbecue is perfect for big family gatherings. As well as a large cooking area with a full grill all the way across, it features a convenient side burner for a range of food preparation tasks. It’s a barbecue designed to make your job as chef as simple as possible – but with enough capacity for a bit of culinary creativity.

This Outback barbecue has plenty of other great features too, such as a side table to give you extra space for food and plates, and it boasts a built-in thermometer so you can achieve the best possible results. 

Features and Benefits

Hybrid charcoal and gas cooking system

New for the 2020 season, this BBQ uses charcoal baskets with Hybrid briquettes which gives all the great taste of charcoal cooking but the convenience of lighting it with gas. To light, turn the burners on high for around 15 minutes until the briquettes start to the ashen grey turn off the burners and the briquettes will continue to burn (much like charcoal). The briquettes will continue to burn without the burners lit so you can cook on the gas BBQ like you would on a charcoal BBQ!

How to insert your hybrid cooking system:

  • Remove the grill plates and centre piece.
  • Remove the flame tamers from the gas burners.
  • Insert the hybrid cooking charcoal basket covering half of the burners.
  • Fill the basket with the desired charcoal.
  • Replace the grill plates and centre piece and ignite your charcoal with the gas burners.

  • Porcelain-coated cast iron grill – This full grill spans all the way across, giving you plenty of room to cook. The porcelain protects the cast iron from rust so you won’t need to season/cure the metal, and it makes clean-up easier.
  • Four stainless steel burners – More burners means more control over cooking temperature, allowing you to have lots of food on the go at once.
  • Side burner – This model has an additional side burner with a hinged lid that can be used as an additional serving space.
  • Large cooking area – Just what you need when there’s a lot of hungry mouths to feed!
  • Side table – Because every chef appreciates having a little extra space for serving and preparation.
  • Additional features – Including a front panel storage drawer, chrome-plated warming rack and porcelain-enamelled hood with integrated thermometer.

Stay Fire Safe: Please follow local fire safety guidance and never leave a BBQ unattended. Always read and follow the instruction manual. Never BBQ indoors. BBQs should be used on a flat surface, in well ventilated spaces and away from anything flammable such as sheds, trees and bushes. Keep away from children and pets. Be careful when moving as BBQs can remain hot for several hours.

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 propane 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 campsites 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality. I bough a red Meteor 4 from Robert Dyas around 8 years ago. It is still as good as new & and the burner bars are solid cast steel and will last longer than me! I previously had a non branded barbecue at around the same price. The burner bars and the diffuser were tinplate and rusted into holes within 2 years and spares were unavailable! It's unlikely that you'll need spares for the Outback but, if you do, it is comforting to know that they are available. As you will have guessed I'm very happy with my Meteor and would totally recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid bbq, large grill space Decent bbq, but needs to be for c£400. Solid construction and appears to be made of quality materials so am hopeful will last a good few seasons. As per other reviews this takes at least 90 mins to construct and requires some 4th dimensional thinking as instructions are not great, also fingers like a heart surgeon as can be quite fiddly. Have now used for small 2-3 person bbq and for a 20+ burger and sausage feed the masses. Performance is adequate, can cope with a full 4 burner load but as with all gas bbqs with the heat deflector above the gas tends to flare up if you have on high and lose attention. Not sure it will get exceptionally hot, so those keen on searing steaks like a pro may not love this, but have cooked a few and they've been good enough. All round a decent, boring mid range bbq.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatility We are only a matter of weeks into our experience with the Outback Meteor Hybrid BBQ - bit already its a good one. Yes it takes a while to build but from there on its simple to use and the burners can be adjusted to allow fast warm up as well as controlled cooking. Using charcoal on half of the BBQ is a simple transition and from our couple of trials ads a really nice cooking flavour. The charcoal ash does add an extra level of required cleaning - vs pure gas mode - but we feel worth it. Having the flexibility of combining gas and charcoal we feel is a really nice benefit. Nice product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not great at all BBQ arrived looking like it had been in a RTA and when we tried to contact RD to arrange replacement it was pretty difficult. Resorted to Facebook which gained a response. The gift was for a 50th wedding anniversary and they couldn’t dispatch a new one until old one was returned so I had to buy another (out of stock) so chose another colour. The courier didn’t collect on agreed day and so it sat out in the rain - not my issue, it’s heavy. Eventually collected and arrived in the Nick of time. Pretty stressful experience, the carrier they use is awful.
