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

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 1 out of 5 by from Turn up damaged Item turned up with lots of damage. Wouldn’t except return so I’m stuck with a damaged bbq. Deliver was 3 days late as well. If it had turned up on time I could have reported the damage sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really great BBQ I've now had the BBQ for a few weeks and have been making a lot of use of it, given the great weather we've had. It was easy enough to put together, other than the instructions for putting the side shelves on weren't too clear (put the top bolts into the body first, then hook the shelves over, then put the other bolts in and tighten). Like my previous Outback BBQ, which lasted 14 years, this seems to be really good quality and I'm looking forward to many years of use. Haven't tried the hybrid element yet, be aware that this has to be used with Coconut charcoal, not the regular BBQ charcoal. Great value in the Robert Dyas sale

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great and works a treat. We've had the barbecue a few weeks and it's been used a lot! Just so convenient for a relaxing dinner option when the weather is good. It's a really stylish model too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Products TERRIBLE Service Products where excellent, however, the service and response from RD was disgraceful. I had paid extra for a named day delivery (a Wednesday) as this was the only day I would have been at home. This information was not passed onto the Haulier (Tufnell's) who promptly delivered on the Thursday. They left no calling card so I was not aware they tried to deliver, they then contacted RD for contact information to arrange a day/time when I would be in. I had to chase RD the following Tuesday who eventually got in touch with the Haulier who call me and delivered it on the Thursday. RD where quick to refund the extra I paid for named delivery but overall the service is very poor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible customer service Item was found with serious damage upon opening box. Odd as no damage whatsoever to box and packaging in that area which indicates item was damaged before being boxed up. Atrocious customer service from Robert Dyas firstly in getting replacement lid, which they lied in saying it had been requested from spares, then failed to act following second call about same thing. Finally after 4 calls and 2 weeks of waiting item was collected and now awaiting refund. had this been sorted at first time of asking I would have taken a replacement but I object to being lied to and treated so badly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OUTSTANDING BARBECUE I recently bought this Outback Barbecue and, although I have yet to cook anything on it due to it being mid winter, I am delighted with the quality and look of it. The construction was straight forward, although diagrams would be easier to interpret than the rather dark, low quality photos in the instructions. It took a couple of hours and I had to spend a bit of time unscrewing the heat shield from the inside of the hood in order to press out a depression in the hood caused possibly during transit. The only tools needed are a cross point screwdriver and a spanner of the right size. My barbecue is in a very fetching British Racing Green which, although I guess isn’t the most popular colour available, does look very classy and means I can cook faster! I am very happy so far and will write again if there are any problems when I actually get around to using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money Excellent bbq. Having had many cheaper ones this product is robust properly manufactured reading no nuts a bolts but proper lined up threaded holes. Gives a good even heat and cooks very well. Great looking bbq well in dark green and satin stainless. Looks pretty rust proof - time will tell our that. Excellent value. Don’t waste money on cheap ones that don’t last. This one is in a quality league o& it’s own. A couple of comments. I had problems with one of the burners lighting back when even a small puff of wind blew. Another comment. The instruction are rubbish. They are only black and white pictures which are blurred and almost impossible to se any details. Fortunately with common sense it is straightforward to assemble with little reference to the instructions.
