Deal of the week: £70 off the Outback Excel BBQWhere to get a great deal on BBQs this summer

Outback excel-300T

Gas BBQs, such as the Outback Excel 300, are easy to light and quick to pre-heat. Being quicker and easier than the charcoal alternative, they tend to be brought out and enjoyed more often.

Another great plus is being able to adjust the heat easily and accurately so you’re less likely to end up with charred sausages that are pink in the middle.

All these good points apply to the Outback Excel 300 Gas BBQ, which also has a side burner, shelf and side table to provide a bit of extra space, and wheels so that you can move it around easily.

Outback Excel 300 BBQ deal

This BBQ usually costs around £190, but it’s currently on offer at The BBQ Store for the just £118.80, a saving of £70. 

You can also pick it up at Outback Direct for £129.99. Both deals include a free outdoor cover and propane gas regulator too.

Which is the best BBQ?

We bought 22 widely available BBQs (13 gas and nine charcoal), each under £450, and tested them on stability, safety, ease of use and ease of cleaning. We also asked an independent chef to cook kebabs, chicken and sausages on it and assess which cooked the most evenly and had the best flavour.

We included the Outback Excel 300 gas BBQ in the trial, find out how well it did in our online review.

Top 3 BBQ buying tips

1. Choose by the size of the cooking area. 2000 sq cm will comfortably cater for four people. 2500 sq cm is big enough for eight or more people.

2. Think about where you’re going to store it. Measure the space in your shed or garage before you buy, or if storing outside, find a cover to go with it. 

3. If you buy a gas BBQ, make sure you buy the correct fuel.
