Which Grillstream barbecues can I buy?

The smallest barbecues feature 2 burners which are ideal for couples or growing families but there are 3-burner, 4-burner and even 6-burner models available which are worth considering if you plan on cooking regularly for large crowds or gatherings. From the ever popular Classic & Gourmet barbecues to the hot off the press Legacy and outdoor kitchens, we’ll explore all the great barbecues made by Grillstream that will allow you to cook up a storm this summer. To whet your appetite we’ve listed some of the best-selling Grillstream barbecues that we’ve picked based on usability, food results and how easy they are to clean below.

What is the Grillstream hybrid system?

Each Grillstream - features an innovative hybrid cooking system, it combines the flavour of charcoal with the convenience of gas! You don’t need firelighters or lighter fluid, you simply use the gas burners to ignite the charcoal that sits neatly and adjacent to the gas burners.  Along with the hybrid system, the Grillstream BBQs are equipped with a double grill system which features one grill on top of another that results in intense flavour because there is less fat and no flare-ups. It also means that there is very little fat that is left within the BBQ so the grills need cleaning less regularly than others. Overall, cooking on the hybrid system with gas, charcoal, or both offers you the flexibility to grill, roast, smoke, and more.

Why lighting a Grillstream barbecue is so easy

Lighting a Grillstream barbecue has never been easier! You don’t need to use any lighter fluid or firelighters that can disrupt the flavour of your food. Simply ignite the gas burners and allow 15 minutes for your grill to reach the desired temperature. You can turn the gas burners off after 15 minutes and allow for a further 15 minutes for the charcoal briquettes to turn white. At this point, you’re ready to cook!

Are Grillstream BBQs easy to clean?

If you are like most barbecue users and dread cleaning up after use then a Grillstream model might be for you. The trays within a Grillstream are shaped to hold the briquette ash together so once the ash cools you can simply remove the trays and throw the ash away. Any fats or juice from meats or other food you cook evaporates when you cook and any remnants are collected in the convenient cup located on the side of the burner. This collection process stops the fat from dropping onto the charcoals, you don’t come across any congealed fats to clean up or any spitting flames when cooking. In short, Grillstream has made cleaning up your barbecue easy which allows you to enjoy spending in the garden rather than scrubbing the grill. 

What is the difference between gourmet & classic models?

The Gourmet range of Grillstream barbecues features all the benefits of the Classic range. Each Gourmet model sits at a higher price point than the Classic equivalent so what extra benefits do you get with Gourmet models? Each Gourmet model has the luxury of an added integrated side steak shelf. This infrared ceramic side burner is perfect for cooking vegetables and meat at a high temperature. All Gourmet barbecues also feature a panoramic viewing window within the lid which allows you to monitor the progress of your cook without letting the heat escape. Gourmet grills are fully manufactured from high-quality stainless steel, they are built to last and this is backed up by their 10-year warranty. The side shelves on Grillstream Gourmet barbecue are chunkier than Classic models meaning they’re able to carry a heavier weight which can be useful when cooking outdoors.
