Try IKEA ^^ always cheap around there, or even in Migros.

Re: Where can we find barbecue in Switzerland?

I found the best place is the Pangaz outlet. The one near us has a huge selection of barbecues, ring burners, accessories etc. Much better choice than Jumbo, Coop, Fust etc. Their online site doesn't do them justice. Pangaz has outlets all over Switzerland. Here a list:

Re: barbecue grill

I am paking my house to move to Basel in a few weeks. I have the Baby-Q by Weber but assumed that the Swiss with all their rules would throw my in jail for cooking autside with an open flame.
The grill takes 400 gm cylinders of propane Gas (like the Benzomatic blow-torch cylinders) that screw directly into the grill (no hoses or anything). I get them at Home Depot here. should I expect that I would be able to get the cylinders at a home imporvement store there? I would love to pack my grill!

You must be kidding. Switzerland has no rules on open flames for cooking, (be sensible while cooking) unless you plan on destroying the forest.

Your grill would probably adapt to the canisters here, if not, you can buy those type of grills for under Fr. 100. anyway.
Bring it along.

In Switzerland most kitchens have a grill in the oven, so save on shipping and balcony space and use that. If you'd like to BBQ grill your food, you'll find charcoal readily available

I second that the taste of charcoal doesn't compare to anything else... However, for those of us with a balcony, a gas grill is probably the only choice ;-)

Well, as long as you don't use accelerants or damp charcoal, there's no reason you can't use a charcoal grill. A well-made fire doesn't create much smoke after the first minute or so. I regularly use my grill on a balcony and start it using old pine cones, which are full of resin and burn quickly and without smoke. They stay hot for ages and your coal will be away in no time.

There's a reason BBQs use charcoal and not gas: it's about flavour. There's no reason whatsoever to use gas, except for inferior cooking quality and er, ease of use. Use a kitchen if you want to keep your fingers clean. En Guete, either way

I am going to invest in a grill soon, so a few more questions:

What about the neighbors?

What about staining the walls or ceiling of the balcony?

The superintendent asked me not to use charcoal. I could probably get away with it though and she is not the mean kind. Any opinions here? Am I allowed to?

A friend of mine regularly BBQs with charcoal on his balcony, you need to clean the whole grill regularly otherwise it gets smoky.

If will stain the walls, ceiling and floor with soot and grease, you may need to clean it with a pressure washer and as a result your neighbours balcony will get flooded.

I'm a definite member of the charcoal brigade, but would have a gas grill if I lived in an apartment.

Re: barbecue grill [Where can I buy one?]

I live in Munich and will be moving to Zurich in February. We have a gas grill and was hoping to bring it with us. I think my husband would die without it. He's totally a meat and potatoes guy! After reading through this thread, am I correct in assuming it is OK to grill on a balcony in an apartment in Zurich? Our flat in Munich was on the ground floor.

Re: barbecue grill [Where can I buy one?]

i think it varies from apartment to apartment. if you are on the top floor or have a garden I cant imagine there ever being an issue.

i can grill on my balcony and have people living above me. in the contract it states grilling is fine but should be done respectably.

Potatoe head, Do not buy a gas one to import, you will have to get all the fittings changed to match the propane tanks in Europe.
If you have a single tank grill, how much money (approximately) are we talking to change the fitting?
Has anyone had a U.S. import blow up or become otherwise unsafe?
Does a US grill operate poorly after being converted to euro valves/tanks?

-hoping to make a U.S. Weber Spirit e-310 work.

Hello outdoor grillmasters...where near Zurich or Lucerne is a good place to buy a gas grill? There doesn't seem to be specialty stores for this--I'm looking for a really nice quality stainless portable grill and will spend up to 1000 CHF for it. Any tips? I found a website with the brand Grillmaster...they look nice but since I can't actually see them in person i don't know the quality. Any tips will help. thanks everyone.

Re: barbecue grill [Where can I buy one?]

Also try here:

http://www.soundgarden.ch/index.php?...3e008d1fa56523

If you order by Price in reverse (highest first), you'll find one's in your price bracket quickly.

Also if you know anyone at CS we had offers on some big grills Koenig I think.
