O-Grill BBQ - O for Outrageous

If you don't already have one of those single burner, gas canister driven cookers that morphed from Chinese restaurants to your camping gear about a decade ago you really should get one. They retail for less than $20 and 4 gas canisters cost around $10

Since I love my camping stove, I got really excited when Google alerts tipped me off to the release of the O Grill. A very similar item for BBQ grilling.

The O-Grill comes in 6 funky colours and is a truly portable gas grill that weights only 12 kgs. O-Grill Boasts a full 225 sq inch coated cast iron cooking grid, 9600 BTU Stainless Steel Burner and compact clam-shell design. O-grill sets up in 10 seconds, is easily cleaned and stowed and measures 20.5"x8.5"x23" (525x215x580 mm).

Ok! So how much? In the UK the O-Grill will set you back GBP149 (AUD 310), in the US you can pick one up for $US168 ($AUD240) but in Australia you'll pay the princely sum of $AUD419 for the pleasure of having an O-Grill.

Outrageous! No wonder they are scare as hens teeth on the net. My suggestion the Biji BBQ featured here last week and the single burner $20 cooker. Just as good, half the price!
