While BBQ season in Australia is almost all year round, it’s about to heat up with ALDI’s BBQ Special Buys.
This Saturday (27 October), ALDI will offer a range of BBQ essentials including a 4 Burner Hooded BBQ with a side burner for just $369.
Expect a stainless steel, double layer hood with a glass viewing window and an in-built temperature gauge.
In addition, you’ll find a warming rack, foldable side table and a detachable digital timer along with eight castors (six lockable) and LED lights with control knobs.
Its assembled size is 1.41m x 55.5cm x 1.20m, with a cooking area of 74 x 44cm, plus it has a one-year warranty for peace of mind.
According to a Canstar Blue survey of more than 1,000 adults, Aussies spend an average of just over $500 on new barbecues, making ALDI’s model something of a budget buy.
For your new BBQ, you might also like to pick up one of ALDI’s BBQ covers at $16.99 each, with 75% of survey respondents also indicating they have a cover for their BBQ.
Choose from two styles – a 4 Burner Cover (size: 165 x 60 x 105cm) or Smoker Cover with side zippers for easy and secure fit (size: 55 x 50 x 100cm). Both are stated to be made from heavy duty PVC with flannel backing.
