PC Eco GrillAfter I saw this spiffy new barbecue at Superstore, I began to harbour secret longings that my current barbecues (one at the lake and one at home) would die a quick death. Oh how I want one of these  PC Eco Gas Grills!

It has 42,000 BTUs, plenty for doing pretty much an job on the ‘cue. But what I love is the stylish green powder coated steel frame. There’s a reason why it’s green. This barbecue uses 30 per cent less fuel for the same BTU output as other models. That means you are less likely to run out of propane when you have 18 hungry people over for a barbecue (never happened to you, right?)

I have a feeling these are going to sell out fast so get yours soon.
