Exclusive to Robert Dyas - Meteor with Multi-Cook BBQ System
Robert Dyas offers the Meteor Stainless Steel exclusively with the Outback Multi-Cook System. This system allows you to cook like never before on a BBQ grill, thanks to the three interchangeable Multi-Cook plates:
The griddle plate circle offers you a full-width griddle across the BBQ. It's the classic barbecue surface, allowing you to grill all your favourites such as meat and poultry, along with a range of vegetables and sides, with ease.
Once you are finished cooking, the griddle plate can be removed and cleaned in the kitchen sink ready for next time.
The flat plate is a very clever addition to the Multi Cook system. It allows you to not only use the plate to grill, or even as a very effective sizzle plate.
In addition, you can place items on the plate such as a wok for total versatility in your BBQ cooking options - No need to revert to the kitchen stove.

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.
