Most expensive barbecue - world record set by BeefEater

CHESTER HILL, Australia -- A barbecue gold plated all over, made by Beefeater especially for the ‘World’s Finest’ exhibition, has a value of 164 010 U.S. dollars (£100,000)-setting the world record for the Most expensive barbecue.

The Most expensive barbecue features a 6 burner BBQ and wok burner, roasting hood with viewing window and warming rack, high output burners, quartz start ignition, vaporizer grid and reflector system.

Proving Gold Grills aren’t just for rappers, BeefEater, Australia’s leading barbecue manufacturer, has tricked out one of its Signature Series 6 Burner SL4000s to create a uniquely lavish gold plated barbecue truly fit for a king.

“BeefEater has created the ultimate backyard status symbol for those who want to make a statement with their barbecue and have the money to burn,” says Peter Woodland, Managing Director of BeefEater.
“It’s for the man who has everything and wants more.”

The BBQ itself has all the gadgets and gizmos you could wish for, plus a few flashy extras:
• Quartz start ignition technology system
• Vaporiser grid
• Six high output burners
• A wok burner
• A roasting hood with viewing window
• Warming rack and reflector system

Alan Chater, Beefeater European Sales Manager, said: “Part of the fun of having a barbecue is putting on a show, and that’s what we do best”.

“We wanted to go to the next step - it’s a great style statement and shows just what can be done. “It was purely made to see what we could do in terms of opulence, price and features. “It clearly does look spectacular.
Should it ever come to market in the future it will cost £100,000 because even the nuts, bolts and screws are gold-plated.”
