It’s a lot of money to spend on a BBQ, but then BBQ is just too small a word for this marvellous monster – heck it’s bigger than most people’s cookers, and probably better. With an 66 x 45cm grill cooking area, a warming rack, four stainless steel main burners, plus a side burner and an electric rotisserie burner for doing your own spit roasts, this BBQ is prepared for any cooking you want to throw at it. There is a temperature gauge in the lid, so you can control your roasting, and it has a very neat push and turn jet ignition system

Surely one of the greatest marks of success, the thing that really sets you apart from the rest, is getting a call from Madame Tussauds requesting your presence, so that they can immortalise you in wax.
If you don’t have time to go to all the sittings in London, the sculptors are skilled enough to progress with research photos. All the sittings are however included in the price, as is a DVD and photo album of the process. A team will also transport and install your wax figure in your chosen private location.
