Incredible.

published

This is the best BBQ I ever owned. It's 4 years old now and still looks and works as new. The optional radiant quartz burners is the best thing for someone who loves even slow roasting. It's the closest you can get to charcoal. Worth every cent

Best burners I've ever had

published

I'm a Head chef. BBQs are not idiot proof as a decent gas stove is as well. Conventional burners instead of Quartz dome ceramic burners? I don't think so. This BBQ is Every chefs dream as we all chase anything that can perform close to charcoal but with gas.
The flavour is unreal. Stainless does not go rusty? Wow do you anything about metals and their mixtures? This Stainless is high grade and just requires "cleaning"... I have high grade SS pots and pans they cost a mint. If I don't clean them though.. guess what happens. Best BBQ hands down. 7 years in and running like a dream.

Excellent quality but the lowest heat is still quite hot

published

Cooks well. High heat at a lowest setting. Would prefer lower heat option. Food burns easily. Definitely recommend paying for assembly by reseller. Best plastic cover. Stainless grates clean easily!

Best BBQ we have ever had

published

We cook everything from stuffed mushrooms, steaks, whole fish, roasts, the crackling on the roast porks is fantastic. We entertain a lot and have never had anyone complain about their meals. We have had this BBQ for over two years and never had a problem, we even have had friends that have gone and bought this product as they were so impressed by it.
I don’t have a problem cleaning this BBQ, it comes apart easily. It does take a while but then so do ovens.
Our BBQ is protected as we didn’t want an expensive piece left out in the weather like our previous BBQ’s.

When is stainless steel not stainless steel?

published

The so called stainless steel grill racks are a very low grade stainless and after several years go rusty. Stainless does not go rusty. Also the two brackets that hold the handles on are not stainless, although they appear to be when you get it. They are in fact Aluminium castings which I can only describe as chrome plated. This coating comes off after time and looks awful.

Can’t believe I listened to the bad reviews

published

I’ve just brought the Ziegler & Brown turbo elite 3 burner model and I’ve got to admit I was one of the sceptics after reading all the bad reviews, The only reason I brought the BBQ is because the chief were i work has the older 4 burner Classic model and he said it’s the best BBQ he’s eva used.
I’ve gotta admit he’s right, it cook steaks and chicken amazingly, the heat the RQT burners gives of is amazing. NO stewing of steaks or burner going out as mentioned in previous reviews and it’s so easy to clean. I just wish BBQ galore would defend there product more online as it would have to be affecting there sales.

The worst bbq we’ve ever had

published

Didn’t cook meat well, whole bbq disintegrated within 2 years... glass dome don’t allow meat to be cooked well in middle. When we bought it the salesman said don’t believe the online reviews - it is just a competitor trying to discredit us. Truth is it is rubbish and it has caught on fire twice - we are now starting again and will go with a 10 year warranty from Weber this time after wasting our money on this...

Very dissatisfied

published

If your BBQ area gets any wind at all DO NOT BUY THIS BBQ. The burners either go out or flare up in yellow flame with the slightest breeze. Bought through BBQ Galore with all settings adjusted by specialist BBQ Rescue. BBQ Galore playing innocent but BBQ Rescue admitted that they often have this problem on this type of BBQ. Go with a BBQ with conventional burners.

Excellent BBQ

published

So we were having our kitchen redone and would be without a kitchen for around 3weeks. Option was to buy a BBQ which is what we did from BBQs Galore. I didn’t think I could cook much on it with out burning but I was so surprised. I manes to cook pizzas, fish, pies, lasagne, spaghetti bog, you name it and the BBQ did it all perfectly. Great but for sure

These negative reviews are making me laugh!

published

I'm reading these reviews and laughing! mine is the turbo elite 4 burner built in model. first of all it's the best BBQ I have ever used. The people complaining have to understand it's not like a regular BBQ. it took me a few goes to get to know how it cooks. With that being said its amazing! I've had mine over 6 years now and it's still runs perfectly. a few tips. get it really hot put your food on and turn off the burner under your food except steaks! steaks keep it screaming hot.
any one want some pictures of the food I've cooked on it just ask. or to see the bbq now just ask. I haven't had to replace anything on it ever!

I have been truly ripped off

published

This has been a disaster, being a believer you get what you pay for has bitten me big time.
I now stew steaks and the after sales service from BBS galore has been ZERO.
I do admin it dies sausages quite well, thus my thoughts on the good reviews only cook bangers.
in short do not go near this product.

Never purchase one of these.

published

Purchased a 4 burner turbo elite. I would say one of the worst purchases I have ever made.
The burners are always getting blocked and not lighting.
The self cleaning just gets more dirty
Grill grids are rusty already (6 months old)
Meant to not flare up when spray plate with oil, it flares up just as much as a normal flame burner
So, for anyone in the market for a bbq, just stick with a normal flame bbq.

worst bbq ever

published

This bbq is the worst unit we have ever had. We were led to believe that bbq would be the best thing we have ever cooked on and the easiest it to clean. Couldn't be more opposite if you tried. We had rep out on a couple of occasions to try and fix up heat issues but that didn't work either. We ended up taking it to the tip.

Poor performance

published

The rqt has been very disappointing with not enough heat and then too much Flame when the meat starts to drip blackening it without cooking.
Wish I'd stayed conventional. Salesperson at BBQ galore did well with the upsell but I wish I had had the opportunity to try one prior to purchase.

Great Ziegler BBQ

published

Bought a Ziggy recently from bbq galore.I was tossing up between the webber q and a ziggy.The thing i really like about the ziggy is that the burners are adjustable, so its like having a conventional bbq not just an oven like the webber.Have cooked many dishes on the zigy and cant be happier.

Worst bbq I've ever bought

published

I bought this bbq thinking it was going to be amazing due to the sales person's comments. I also figured due to the $1,700 price tag it would be a good bbq. I couldn't have been more wrong. Whilst the burners get hot, it doesn't sear the meat properly and often just stews it. To get the bbq hot during pre heating you need both burners on full blast even when you just use one to cook. I recommend people stick to normal gas burner or charcoal bbq's.

Husband loving his new toy!

published

My husband treated himself to this new toy for Christmas. It is taking some adjusting to the different heat on this to a conventional BBQ, but we are loving the no flare ups and easy clean. The lid is heavy and does an excellent job retaining heat for lid down cooking.
Fair to say I’m loving it too!

Worst Mistake I have made. Ziegler and Brown Turbo Elite 2 Burner

published

Cook BBQ 3-4 Times a week, had the 4 burner version for many years and it was excellent.
The two burner version struggles to get High temperatures. Had them out and they increased the jet size, now gets to hot on the ends. Changed to conventional burners and still slow to cook. I believe the BBG area,plate to require a minimum of three burners. I feel like taking a $1800 BBQ to trash and treasure.

Turbo Elite BBQ (on Cart)

Hello ... all I just purchased a turbo elite 2 burner, although I love the design I don’t think it cooks steak well... it kind of boils it or stews it instead of cooking it like a normal bbq. I know a few people are having the same issues.. did BBQs galore give you a refund or exchange ? I don’t know what to do... I am not happy ... for such expensive product i was expecting much more... please help...

They don’t acknowledge there is anything wrong with it. I’m in the process of looking at using the cabinet and pulling the whole fire box off the bbq and putting a Webber q on it. The only way you can cook a descent steak is by using the plate ( which I changed to cast iron)

Turbo Elite 2 Burner on Cart

One of my Turbo Elite RQT burners is misfiring with a burbling sound. I have cleaned the jet orifice and burner tube. I have swapped burners but it is still misfiring at the same jet position. Does the gas valve need to be replaced?

Did you change your jets to natural gas or do you have LPG still?
