The patented CROSSRAY system uses infrared burners mounted on both sides of the chassis, angled up at the cooking surface. Because the burners are infrared, they perform better than a traditional open flame burner.
Infrared heat penetrates the food, cooking it from the
inside out, locking in the moisture and enhancing the flavour. An open flame simply sears the outside and cooks inwards. It just
heats the air around it – ultimately drying out your food.
Infrared burners are also more efficient and cook faster than traditional burners. So, your food is ready
sooner, and you use less gas. And because the burners are not directly beneath the cooking surface, fat and
juices drain harmlessly away, reducing smoke and virtually eliminating the flare-ups that char your food, leaving the

GadgetGuy’s take. No CROSSRAY is not me after I burn the
Like most sensitive new age males that like to cook, I like
using a BBQ. I have a Webber Q family unit for a few years that is great for
roasts but only works with the hood closed. Where is the fun in that?
It takes a lot of getting used to hood down cooking. With
Webber you pre-heat, pull back the temperature, put the stuff in, close the
hood and come back later to a perfect roast.
I have been cooking over hot coals (figuratively speaking)
for 40+ years. I do a pretty good BBQ, but I have always wanted more. The CROSSRAY offers so much flexibility from a
standard BBQ to a pizza oven and everything in between.
One advantage of the Webber was its running cost is about 30% of a traditional two burner BBQ.
CROSSRAY state its four burner model is
about 50% more efficient.
Price – well it is a premium product but pretty comparable
to other signature brands that don’t offer as much.
