I came across a good deal on a Beefeater gas grill, and after a little research bought it. They come from Australia, although it sounds like they are actually made in China now :( , but anyway, got the grill, and it has some unique features about it. First, the burners are closer to the grates than normal, they call this an Australian style grill. Also, one half is a CI grate, the other half is a CI griddle. I cooked some steak tonight on the griddle section, and it really turned out quite good. There was a great crust, and no flareups, I was pretty happy with how it turned out. Anyway, just thoguht I would post and see if anyone had experience/tips with this "Australian" type of grill.

Nick a good gasser is a useful part of your cooking gear.
I use mine a lot as an outdoor finishing oven finishing foil wrapped butts or briskets, foiled ribs etc. .
Imy preferred rib cooking technique is to smoke for 2-3 hours then finish on the gasser searing at the end.
I use mine for grilling seafood & other quick things & much more in the winter.

Have you cooked on it yet, Nick? If so, what're your initial opinions?

I have only done the steaks I talked about in the first post, I got busy using the Primo to do 3 racks of ribs, and after that 6 corned beef points. As stated earlier, using the griddle to do the steaks on was a great hit, the crust on them was amazing. I have cooked steak on a griddle before, but never with the ability to get that kind of heat. I was really impressed. I think I have my bases covered now, ceramic for low and slow, and gas for quick sears, etc. So I would say so far I am very happy with both grills.
