Outback Excel 300 Gas BBQ
An independent consumer watchdog ‘Which?’ report in the summer of 2011 chose the Excel 300 as a ‘Best Buy’ from among 22 UK barbecues tested. Judges said the Outback barbecue’s cooking performance with lava rocks meant “food was moist and tender”, and concluded “it’s also sturdy with a good quality finish”.

Pros: Good looking & Does the job!
Cons: Could do with a wind break on the side burner. Need a handle to move it!
Good looking BBQ and easy enough to assemble. Legs don't fit exactly into slots but sturdy enough once assembled not to be a problem. Did take a couple hours to put together but with a beer on a hot day glad of some BBQ food afterward :)
Pros: Good looking, and sturdy.
Cons: You need to set aside time to build the barbeque it is not a five minute job.
We are very pleased with our new Barbeque. It arrived at just the right time. It wasn't too difficult to put together, although you do need to follow the instructions.
It looks good and perhaps more importantly it does its job and the food cooked on it was fantastic!
Pros: Sturdy, looks good, porcelain grill.
Cons: Bit of a flimsy lid.
In the past we've always bought own brand barbecues from Tesco, Homebase places like that. We thought we'd splash out on an Outback and it was worth the extra. The plastic bits give it a solid chunky feel and the legs and wheels are good and sturdy. The gas bottle holder is cleverly placed over the axle so its very maneuverable. The burner has flames coming out of it in all the right places and lights easily so thats good. I comes supplied with lava rock, a regulator and a cover, all of which do their intended job nicely. If there is an criticism I would say the lid if a bit flimsy but the sturdy handle stiffens it up a bit. The best thing is the porcelain coated grill, which even after a few cooks and coated in burnt on bits of burger and sausage, cleans up very easily and looks like new each time.
Pros: Looks good.
Cons: Can be a bit fiddly to assemble.
Product was deliverd in good time from seller. If you follow the instructions you will have no problems assembling, and you should allow approximately 1.5 hours. Certainly looks the part when assembled, but have not used yet due to dire weather?
Pros: Looks nice, easy to store. Appears good quality. Alloy burners should last.. Good heat control.
Cons: Takes a while to build and parts can be difficult to line up for bolt holes.. Otherwise ok.
This is a good medium size barbecue that works well. Be prepared to spend a lot of time building it up. It can be really fiddly. Some of the bolt holes do not line up and it takes a bit of persuasion to get parts to fit. The lid handle being an example. It says you need two people to build it. You need patience.
Pros: Great design,comes with a cover too!
Cons: A little awkard to build apparantly for my 16 year old, but it is up and running now!
Really recommend this BBQ it is compact and easy to use. Great design and comes with a cover! I am really pleased with everything about it, inclduding the price :)
Pros: Durable, Looks good, Value for money, Well Made
Cons: Fiddly to install
The other reviews are correct in that this is an excellent product, feels very sturdy compared to my previous ones (one was an Outback) and easy to move with the bottle placed over the wheels. it does take some time to build but I had no issues and was able to manage on my own. Other reviews did mention it comes with a cover but mine did not - and to be fair it did not say it was going to! Love it
