More than just a bbq
We have the Crossray 4 burner built in BBQ with the natural gas conversion kit.
Wow, this is way more than just your standard BBQ it turns your outdoor entertainment area into a outdoor kitchen all year round. With this BBQ gone are the days of just cooking some snags and steak in the summer, this truly is a BBQ you will want to cook on 365 days of the year, while it cooks your traditional BBQ food to perfection there is so much more you can do from whole whole fish to vegetables, roast meat and not to forget pizza. I have had natural gas BBQ's...

- 4-Burner Trolley
I love my Crossray BBQ. I have the 4 burner trolley unit. Was very easy to assemble, as the firebox is a complete enclosed unit, and slots into the trolley easily. The trolley was very easy to assemble. Fantastic for cooking a range foods on and it is like you are cooking on a charcoal grill; you can do a perfectly char-grilled steak (as good as any high end steak house), awesome burgers, fantastic rotisserie lamb, beef and pork, the perfect, juicy rotisserie chicken and it is great for pizzas using a pizza stone and your own hand made base...s. It also doesn't flare-up like other BBQs. I have't cooked fish or veg on it yet, but can't wait to try, especially charring eggplant for a smoky baba ganoush. You can use the entire cooking surface as it has no hot or cold spots, and you can cook on the upper rack too, so for a 4 burner BBQ you get a lot more cooking space than other 6 burner BBQs. Cooks very quickly and cleans up easily too. Absolutely great investment. Purchased from Harvey Norman Hobart in January 2019 for $1988, with a bonus outdoor heater valued at $499, so was very good value. I'd also highly recommend getting the Crossray rotisserie kit too; you'll never want to roast meat in the oven gain.

We love our Crossray BBQ
I bought our Crossray BBQ, 4 burner, around February 2019. 3 things that stand out, far easier to keep clean, better more even cooking of food and it's also great to use it as a pizza oven so don't need to buy a separate one of them. Others in our family have now purchased their own Crossray

No need for an oven
Since purchasing the crossray I find I don’t use my oven nearly as much, not to mention the fact that my life is so much easier as my husband cooks more. Anything you can do in your oven and stove top, you can do better on your crossray. Cleans up quicker and much easier than the oven and stove top as well.

Crossray BBQ - I love cooking again!
I loved my old BBQ but I am so happy I made the switch recently to a 4-Burner Crossray. The first thing that impressed me was the quality of the build, it's a very high-quality product that looks fantastic, and the size of the cooking area is almost identical to my old six-burner BBQ.
But the real fun began when I turned it on for the first time. The BBQ ignites really quickly and the infra-red burners generated cooking-heat almost instantaneously.
I have cooked on the BBQ probably 10 times in the 20 days I have had it and I haven't been disap...

A great Bbq
I’ve had this about a month now and cooked steaks, sausages, roast chicken and pizza on this and all have been great. The top cooking rack is great for sausages - cooks them quickly by without burning. Steaks cook great - either with the good up or down. One of the best features is how easy it is to clean - just put it on high with lid down for 10 mins and everything burns away and you just need to rub a brush over it. I haven’t had to use any sort of cleaning cloths or sprays like on my old bbq.

Couldn't be happier with my new BBQ
I've had my cross ray for a couple of months and have given it a fair work out and couldn't be happier with it the roast meats are amazing and the double skin of the BBQ stops excessive heat from transferring to the outside of the BBQ, the even cooking of everything makes it a breeze to cook on and with no flare ups from the flames food is fantastic and juicy all the way through

Versatile and quick
The first thing you notice is the quality of the build. Stainless steel with anodised cast aluminium. It's a quality product and looks great.
Initially the angled burners seem counter intuitive until you realise that it's the radiation, like the way the sun warms us, rather than direct heat, which cooks the bangers. This is more efficient so it uses less gas than barbecues which rely on direct heat. It also cooks faster.
I found that using a lower gas setting was advisable; you don't need to cook on high like on my old barbecue. In fact I thi...

Best BBQ Ever
I have had my Crossray now for about 12 months. Very glad I made the change. We had a roast with vegies over the weekend and it the family said it was the best ever. I thought so too. With the BBQ being able to get so hoot it also makes the best Pizza's. Have used it for many things, the only issue was that I haven't quite perfected my Pav's, but any other dessert dish come up a treat.

Simply the best gas BBQ on the market
When it was time to get serious on a BBQ upgrade, I looked at all the usual big ticket brands before accidentally stumbling upon the Crossray 4-Burner online. Being a passionate charcoal BBQ cooker, gas BBQs only served for convenience rather than pure flavour. However the fact that the Crossray heats up to such a high heat drew my immediate attention and upon further research and then getting an in store demonstration, I was hooked. It can sear monster tomahawk steaks before finishing them slowly for the perfect technique without fuss. Chicken...wings are a dream cooked on lower heat on the shelf with the lid down. They don't dry out or burn the yummy tips when you cook them slowly and no matter what marinade you use, they'll be the best chicken wings you'll ever eat. Simply... the Crossray is the best appliance I have ever purchased.

Questions & Answers
Hello. I'm really impressed with your reviews but am wondering if there are any plans to manufacture a 6 burner built in?
I'm also struggling to find the dimensions of the 4 burner built in.
Thanks in advance
Hi Robbie, our 4 Burner CROSSRAY BBQ has a total cooking are of 5474cm2. This is equivalent to a 6 Burner Traditional BBQ. You can also visit out www.crossray.com.au website and download the in-built manual for more information.

We were considering an Ooni or Rockboxx gas pizza oven to complement our existing reliable, but very old 4 burner gas barbecue. Can anyone that cooks pizzas advise the typical time taken on the Crossray to cook a pizza, and how do they compare to wood fired pizzas. Also do you cook pizzas on a metal plate, or a stone on top of the grill plates. Thanks Chris Healesville Vic.
Hi Chris. I have the CrossRay 2 burner bbq. I do pizzas on mine . I use a pizza stone.I bought a pizza rack from Bunnings that holds 3 pizza stones, so can do 3 pizzas at a time. It’s best to keep the stones up off the grill plate. I get the bbq to 300c in 10 minutes. Then i put the pizza on the stone and only takes 5 to 6 minutes depending on how thick the base is and how much topping. Pizza are very nice. I still think wood fired pizza are a bit better. But I love cooking on my CrossRay. Especially thick ribeye steaks.
