Ok, so if (big if) I considered buying a permanent barbecue so that that likes of @Cras didn’t scoff at my disposable one, and Mr Zoidberg wasn’t too scared to visit in case I poisoned him, what would I be looking for.

For starters, what is the difference between the £80 and the £64 offerings here? What’s the sort of bucket contraption under the first one?

We have this as Cras said "Buy this one" and the lad wasn't wrong.

I did see that brand keep popping up as recommended, but unfortunately that’s out of my budget for the moment.

The one you've linked up top will likely be just fine. The cheaper one has a tray at the bottom that spent ash will drop onto. The more expensive one has more of a bucket so it'll collect more of the ash and just be a bit tidier. I'm not convinced that's worth an additional £15

Super. That’s good to know. I wasn’t sure what that underneath but was and couldn’t find any information about it anywhere. Cheers, sir.

I’ll keep looking around as I’m not decided on whether to get one yet, but a lot I was looking at seemed to be one of those two styles and I couldn’t work out the difference (I wondered if maybe it was for extra coals or something :D )

I wouldn’t trust it not to bubble up and go black

I did see a yellow one that folds up into a handbag :D

It fascinates me how different the ways we 'spell out sounds' can be.

Never would have occurred to me to use 'Ziiiiiiiii' as the barbecue sizzle sound

Would love it but still can’t afford that one even if all the Yes Chefs say it’s the best (Cras did a few posts up) :D

Buy a cheap version of the same thing to see if you enjoy it, with the knowledge that in a year or two you'll need to buy another one. At that point you'll know if it's worth the investment.

Gotta have a hot grill to get that TTTTTSS at the beginning

Aldi have on the past had some decent-isj barbecues. Good warranty / returns policy too

Go to one of the Yes Chef's houses and steal theirs. They probably want an excuse to buy a new one anyway.

Excellent plan. I think Grim… built a whole outdoor kitchen, so I could probably pick up a sink and a workbench, too.

Steal their expensive one, sell it on ebay, buy a cheap one.

TBH I suspect just turning up at their house and asking to have some BBQ food would probably work most of the time.

There's actually one at my house (albeit an older model) that's been covered and unused for about four years.

It belongs to Craster :)

I'm sure he won't mind

Excellent plan :D

I’ll have a look around (online, not in Grim…’s garden) to see if I can find something that looks durable and of that same style, but less spendy. I know it won’t last as long, but those nice ones are just a bit much when we have so much to fix in the house (like the dining room ceiling). It won’t ‘live’ outside, and will go into the garage between uses, so hopefully that will extend its life a little.

Replace the bulb in the dining room with a searingly bright led then no one will be able to see whatever is wrong with the ceiling. Much more cost effective and easier to boot!

(Part of my drive to replace all the incandescent bulbs in the house with LEDs is to avoid dealing with the electrics that cause them all to dim/brighten even without high power things like fridges cycling on)

Ahhh! Ahh haaaaa! But your plan falls down because for some reason there IS NO CENTRE ROOM LIGHT.

Do your barbecuing in the dining room, and no one will look at the ceiling because they'll be so fixated by the barbecuing.

That’d certainly hide the ceiling.
