Home Home Tech Hi-tech BBQ for your Cup Day festivities

Thermofilm's Crossray BBQ looks like a conventional BBQ, but uses infrared burners for heat intensity and gas efficiency.

The ceramic infrared burners used in the Crossray BBQ use the same technology that Thermofilm developed for its Heatstrip outdoor infrared heaters.

The intensity and controllability of the heat makes the Crossray very flexible. In addition to regular grilling, it can run as cool as 110 degrees for slow cooking (think American-style barbecued meats, or local favourites such as lamb shanks) or as high as 380 degrees for a quick and crispy pizza.

According to the company, the Crossray "delivers the intensity and quality of charcoal with the convenience and control of gas".

The efficiency of the burners means the Crossray uses half as much gas as a conventional BBQ, and the arrangement of the burners reduces smoke and flare-ups.

In addition to the usual grill plates, an upper cooking area accommodates joints of meat and other foods that need gentler cooking, such as fish, vegetables and casseroles.

When the cooking is done, running the Crossray on high for five to 10 minutes is said to burn off most of the residue, minimising the cleaning effort.

Prices range from $1199 for the two-burner built-in model to $1999 for the four-burner trolley version. A cast iron hot plate, an outdoor vinyl cover, a rotisserie kit and a natural gas conversion kit are optional extras.
