Believe it or not - Spring is on the way! After record-breaking bad weather we can look forward to the clocks going back on March 30th, and the chance to plan ahead for some long-awaited al fresco barbecue dining.
At Outback we have been busy opening a new warehouse and offices linked to a streamlined distribution operation and a consolidated manufacturing base - all of which will consolidate our 30-year record as suppliers of premium barbecue brands to the UK market. You may be thinking of a new barbecue, so why not 'put the kettle on' - in this case with our latest garden party scene-setter, the Outback Charcoal Kettle Series in a choice of striking black or red.
The Kettle's features include a porcelain-coated roasting hood and firebox, warming rack, foldable cooking grill, large ash collector, two wheels and three sturdy legs. A major factor in Outback's success is providing a wide range of products to meet a varied and changing consumer demand, illustrated this year with the development of the new Meteor Select Stainless Steel 6 Burner Gas barbecue. As good as it gets, this top model has 6 cast iron burners with individual controls and a stainless steel roasting hood, an ultra-fast side sear burner, Piezo ignition, porcelain-coated cast iron grill and griddles, lava rock for added smokey meat flavour, and built-in storage cabinets.
For the multi-menu enthusiast demanding the best of both worlds, Outback has developed the newly-designed Combi Select Charcoal/Gas 4 Burner barbecue – a chef's dream with a choice of two roasting hoods, four cast-iron gas grills, a charcoal grill, a griddle, two warming racks, lava rock, side tables and storage cabinet. Finally, with the caterer, publican or event-organiser in mind, there's the new Outback Party Select 6 Burner Gas barbecue.
Ideal for a wide range of social, business or fund-raising events, this easy-store, collapsible and maneuverable barbecue has 6 cast-iron burners, grill and griddle, two foldable side tables, and a hefty 780 x 420mm cooking area complete with Piezo ignition. Last year no other barbecue supplier matched our success when the leading UK consumer watchdog Which? voted three Outback products as 2013 ‘Best Buys’ - and The Independent national newspaper chose the Outback Spectrum Select Hooded 3 Burner Gas model as number 1 from nine rivals in a pre-summer survey.
Which? also listed the Spectrum Hooded 3 again after its 2011 'Best Buy' success in their survey from a total of 20 tested, and had special praise for the new Select version of the Spectrum, as well as placing the popular Outback Omega 200 Charcoal barbecue on their top choice list.
So the Outback success story continues, and we look forward to once again helping you choose your own party-pleaser from our extensive range. After that, for you it becomes 'simply a matter of taste'.
