The more time we spend at home, the more we’re looking at ways to bring variety and flavour into our mealtimes. Life can be complicated enough, but – thanks to Char-Broil - barbecuing doesn’t have to be! Char-Broil’s cleverly-designed range of BBQ grills makes it easier than ever to integrate the juicy flavour and taste of BBQ into your weekly menu plans. 

Barbecue Innovators

Char-Broil started revolutionising the world of barbecuing back in the 1940's when it introduced the first charcoal grill onto the US market. Since then the brand has pursued one goal: developing appliances that are as unique, innovative and simple today as they were then.  

Almost 60 years after introducing the first charcoal grill, Char-Broil debuted another innovation every bit as exciting: the TRU-Infrared™ Cooking System. This system – found in the Big Easy, Kettleman and All-Star models - delivers even heat distribution, juicier food, higher temperatures and zero flare-ups for restaurant-quality results every time. 

A Grill To Suit You

Char-Broil offers barbecue grills to suit every type of barbecue; from professional grills to hybrid grills to smokers. Char-Broil also offers a comprehensive range of barbecue accessories, including top-quality cooking and cleaning utensils and storage solutions.


Key Char-Broil Barbecue Models

The great range of Char-Broil barbecues at Hillier Garden Centres includes these popular models. 

Char-Broil All-Star BBQ


Key Benefits:

  • Hybrid gas / charcoal barbecue
  • Ideal for smaller spaces

  • Rust-resistant cast iron grill gates
  • Char-Broil TRU-Infrared cooking technology

Why choose between gas or charcoal when there is a grill that can do both?  The versatile, portable Char-Broil All-Star BBQ is a hybrid ‘gas to coal’ barbecue that converts from gas into charcoal in a matter of minutes, thanks to a charcoal tray accessory. This enables the All-Star to deliver the ultimate flexibility for people who want the speed and convenience of gas with the smoky flavour of charcoal.

The All-Star BBQ is ideal for those who will be cooking on a balcony or in a small garden, but still want the performance of a premium grill. It’s extremely flexible. It can either be placed in its stand, with foldable side shelves for extra workspace, or it can be detached from the stand and placed on a tabletop. The All-Star also has an innovative GearTrax accessory that turns it from a low-level portable BBQ to full height wheeled cart, making it easy to manoeuvre.

Cast iron grill grates make the All-Star durable, rust-resistant and easy to clean. It delivers the trademark Char-Broil TRU-Infrared cooking performance on the 1,600cm² cooking area using indirect infrared heat to provide even cooking, no flare-ups, and 50% juicier results every time.

The All-Star BBQ offers distinctive, premium design and durability. It has a cast-aluminium lid with a lid-mounted temperature gauge and a porcelain enameled firebox to deliver a perfect, controlled barbecue experience.

The Char-Broil Performance 3500 makes the most of traditional charcoal barbecuing while introducing several innovative features to ensure you have the best outdoor dining experience.

The unique cooking system ensures that your grill operates really efficiently with minimal wasted energy, and is designed to improve performance while guaranteeing the highest quality food. You'll find that your charcoal burns more efficiently and the temperature is far easier to control, this naturally leads to much more accurate cooking times and tastier results.

A temperature gauge is fitted to the hood and the fire pan is lifted or lowered externally to achieve different height settings. When grilling at a high temperature for some time, there's a side valve that introduces maximum airflow.

Food preparation is helped by two shelves and, with a removable charcoal tray, every surface is designed to be easily cleaned. For storage, the BBQ is fitted with wheels and can be quickly moved out of the way until required again.
