Half Oil Drum Charcoal BBQ. 4.4 5 86 94
That why it's cheat First time good. Then you find out that the charcoal platform has bend out of shape with the heat and is no good. The next time due to this the coals are hard to light. Have lots of lighter fluid. 01 August 2012
it was ok but i got better!!! this bbq was ok at half price but not very sturdy. so much so that once i had put it up and saw how rubbish it was i took it back down and returned it. 31 July 2012
ok i brought this when it was reduced in the sale and for that price it was ok but i would not of been happy if i had paid the full price for it because It was not as big as i was expecting (previous reviews stated that it was big or even massive)but it's ok for 4-5 people . Easy to put together although there was 1 broken screw and 1 missing 31 July 2012
Great BBQ Really fantastic for bbqs, great size, we were able to cook almost everything in one go.i def wd recommend this one. 31 July 2012
Good cooker, but design flawed This has a good sized cooking area for large BBQ's and has cooked food well, but there are a couple of design issues; firstly the grid that the coals sit on; the gaps between the bars are too big, many pieces of lumpwood charcoal fall through straight to the bottom, only large pieces or briquettes can be used. Secondly, you cannot adjust the cooking height, so if food is cooking too quickly you have too remove it rather than lift the grill higher. That said, it's cooked well so far for parties of 15 or more. 24 July 2012
quick easy to buy ordered, collected and paid for back home made up within 1 1/2 hours now need some sun! 18 July 2012
Bbq Very good value for money very big was able to cook a wide range of food at same time 10 July 2012
excellent I love this bbq, its excellent value for money, we bought it for a large family gathering and it did not disappoint, its sturdy and a good size, the only negative thing i would say is the cooking surface is a bit close to the coals but next time we will light it earlier so the coals have a chance to die down before we cook 10 July 2012
BBQ This is quite a big BBQ which I am very pleased with. There are at least 8 people present when I BBQ and since I bought this we don't have to wait hours before we all get to eat! I bought it in the sale so it was really brilliant value. I would really recommend this BBQ when catering to a large group. 10 July 2012
One of the best I have used Easy instructions to follow, 10-20 minutes to fix it together, bought this for my daughters 22nd birthday party, there was around 30 people who attended, this product was ideal, easily handled all the food that was cooked, down side being as i am 6'3" tall, it was a little low for me to use for a long time comfortably, and one other issue i found is that there is a lip on the edge of the bbq (where the grill sits securely), and after the bbq has gone out, I found it a bit annoying to remove all the ash as it gets caught in this lip. 03 July 2012
good value I Bought this item last weekend whilst on offer it was easy to put together and worked a treat ideal for large family gatherings 03 July 2012
Good size for the money got in the sale 03 July 2012
Good Value Easy to assemble and made of descent quality materials. 03 July 2012
Job done! Sparked it up and made enough meat for 30-50 people at a party! Does the job. However... I'd get the one with the lid If you want to keep it outside uncovered... 27 June 2012
Super Size This was used for a BBQ for 25 people.. Okay we had 2 sittings but found it excellent! 26 June 2012
Value-for-Money barbecue I'm delighted with this purchase - it is fit for purpose and works a treat. Assembly was a piece of cake and it doesn't take up a lot of storage space. Ideal for a small family or when entertaining a few friends, the half-oil drum barbecue does the job. 20 June 2012
Ideal Just the right size and very good value for money 17 June 2012
Poor I found this product to be of poor quality and would have returned if it wouldn't have caused such an inconvenience. The legs are wonky and the coal grid bent under the heat. 13 June 2012
Good BBQ Easy to assemble and large enough to get a decent amount of food on the go. Only down side to this is it is not storage friendly. 13 June 2012
BBQ Season As and avaid BBQ fanatic, I.E any time of the year. I purchased this product mainly on it's price, and the need for a coal BBQ as mine had finally died. This BBQ is very easy to assemble, the insrtuctions are easy to follow(Even my son helped and he's 3). This is a larfe BBQ and takes a lot of coal to fill it. The only down fall I can see is due to the amount of coal needed the temperature is quite excessive, this resulted in the tray to hold the coal warping with 10 mins of starting the BBQ. I was bent in such a way it was on the base of the BBQ, thus not really being of any use. Apart from this minor thing, it's a very sturdy BBQ with many outings to come. 13 June 2012
