This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Hi Guys,

Would you test this for me please?

Made with Milkshape, SimPE v.50 it is compatible with ALL games, it is colour enabled and has its own unique (registered) GUID - so it wont conflict with (or overwrite) anything else in your game.

Polygon Count: 825 (= low )

This is a brick built BBQ, complete with tools, a bag of charcoal and plates ready for serving. It is fully functional (but remember, before you can use ANY BBQ in the game, you must have visitors AND burgers and/or hotdogs in the fridge or you will get the 'there are no actions available' tooltip bubble).

I don't like ANY of the BBQ's that came with the game so I decided to make this one for my Sims (who seem to like it!...for a change!)

It occupies a FULL tile (so you can place them side-by-side to make a row of them-see pic)... and the back of the BBQ lines up with normal walls (see pics again), although it looks OK as a 'stand alone' object.

The zip file contains 3 colours; 'Natural' London Brick -the default colour- and a darker 'reclaimed' London Brick and finally a 'dirty' version.

The tools/accessories are also available in a 'dirty' state version (recolour).

This (like the BBQ it was cloned from) does NOT change to 'dirty' on its own...I just decided they would make a 'interesting' recolours :confused: .

It can be found in Appliances/Cooking. in both residential and commercial catalogues.

Please report any issues...and thanks for testing


Recolours: (As with all my objects,) please DO NOT post any files that contain my original mesh.
You are free to post your recolour files (preferably here, in the recolours section). Please pm before posting recolours....I always reply!.. as I love to see what you recolour artists can do with my stuff!

LOTS: Please do NOT include this (or any other of my objects) in any LOT uploads. These are BETA objects, here for testing.

Finally, please do not clone or post on pay/subscription sites

Love this! I have been wanting my husband to build me one. Perhaps when he sees how great his sim looks grilling ribs with your brick BBQ he will be inspired! Thanks Bob!

Thanks so much for this great looking BBQ! I too dislike the BBQs that came with the game (where on earth did Maxis get such an ugly design?). Now I will replace the old BBQs on my lots with this nice looking one.
