The Bottom Line
This model has been discontinued. For a comparable product see my list of the Best Gas Grills between $250 and $500.
Barbeques Galore imports its own line of grills. This one sits at the bottom of the line. This is a grill designed for cooking and has no features other than the main grill. It has a good warranty and heavy components but the reliance on the porcelain coatings forces you to take extra care of the grill.
While not a bad grill it doesn't take advantage of a more modern design. This is a good grill at the price (around $400). In this price range, you shouldn't be looking for something too fancy.

Guide Review - Cook-On 3-Burner Gas Grill Review
Barbeques Galore is the world's first franchised grill store.
They are an Australian company who imports grills primary made in China for the Australian and American market. The Cook-On line is at the bottom of their grill line. Barbeques Galore has a good reputation for service and support and is in the business for the long haul with over 150 stores.
This grill has three porcelain coated cast iron burners producing 42,000 BTUs under a primary cooking area of 494 square inches.
While this is a little light this grill does produce a good, even heat. You might want to give it an extra minute or two to heat up. The porcelain coated cast iron cooking grates will require you to take good care not to chip them, but are a great cooking surface. If you're interested I'm told you can change out the grates and burners for stainless steel.
As a grill that can cook this is a good one. About $400 you can't get many other grills of this size and power with heavy cast iron components. It does have a primitive design, but at this price range, you really should be looking for a grill that cooks well and not something fancy. While there really isn't anything that stands out about this grill, the price is certainly right.
This grill is available in a number of configurations.
