New barbecue

Does anybody know a decent shop where to buy a decent gas barbeque without being ripped off in Dubai?
I am not very experienced in barbeque.
I checked ACE, some of them look not bad but i dont like to spend 6 or 7000 aed in a barbeque......
All suggestions are welcomed.
Thanks

Why don't you try getting one from Dubizzle?
Even if it is second hand, you could find a very nice one, people leave Dubai every day and a lot will sell this kind of stuff cheap.


Good luck

Ask the next South African or Zimbo that you fly with, they are the BBQ (Brai) experts!

A secondhand bbq??? May as well ask if they've got some secondhand steak knives and plates while you're at it.

.........a decent gas barbeque without being ripped off in Dubai?
................... but i dont like to spend 6 or 7000 aed in a barbeque
In this place, it's usually one or the other.
Get a jingly cooker or pay some decent money. Try beefeaterbbq.com

South African or Zimbo that you fly with, they are the BBQ (Brai) experts
Subtle but important differences between a bbq and a braai. Some might say they are not the BBQ experts!

If your budget is 6-7k then a Weber Genesis is the best barbie for the money.
It has guarantees lasting up to 25 years, which says something about the product. Food cooked on a Weber gas q is fantastic

I think he said he does NOT want to spend 6-7000dhs. Unless there are some summer offers coming up, I'd save the outlay until October as you will not want to be standing outdoors cooking from now until then!

New barbecue

I got a pretty good gas BBQ at home life in Mirdif for 1800.00 about a year ago. Still work well. 3 burner plus a side burner. Home life is at most Dubai malls.

Oh ok, missed that.
In any case i reckon buy once buy right, the weber will last you a long time and you really can " taste the difference ".
Come on use some of that profit cher, and in the case of a bbq the whole family wins !

@Scandistralian,

Yeah - Us Zimbo's and Saffa's are the best at braai's for sure....

The best braai I ever had was a 44 gallon drum cut in half, welded onto an angle iron frame. Started the fire with balls of newspaper and broken up twigs, Then good old fire wood from the bush placed on top and allowed to burn down to good cooking charcoals....

Ahhh... the old days of cooking on a proper braai.... and it cost bugger all to make by yourself....Jassis Man..!!

Thank god the BBQ is bought!
I'm too a charcoal guy but finding good quality charcoal is a problem in Dubai.
Anybody knows where to get good long lasting charcoal? Not any of that briquette stuff...
