Different Type Of Barbecue

Post by Tow Itch on Fri 01 Nov 2013, 12:07 pm

Looking at various classified ads when I saw the cheesiest ever non classified ad on UKCampsite.

So found the product it's a quick light or virtually instant barbecue that uses real charcoal. A really good concept, I like to use proper charcoal half the world seems to want to barbecue instantly.

So what is there not to like? Ah yes um from £139.00 to  £319.00 maybe I shouldn't have put this on the bargains page. Pitty it sounds like a great idea I think I'll wait for someone to produce the £19.99 version though.

I think you were welll done there Mr Itch. To be honest I think the Cadac Safari takes some beating. It cooks in so many different ways.

I think I would have been "well done" if I "blue" that amount of cash on a barbecue but is is "rare" that you will see me spend that sort of cash.  Have we covered the stake cooking pun jokes now?

So does a gas cooker but that is not a barbecue either!


Yes I realise that is a bit snotty but I have very firm beliefs that the words gas and barbecue are mutually exclusive.

Without wanting to have one I can still see some of the advantages of a gas barby

Instant lighting
almost instant heat
burns as long as you want
can be put out when you want
no ashes to need chucking out after

But where's the flavour of the wood?

I prefer a real bbq, although the gas ones are more convenient I still wouldn't have one. Even at home if the weather permits we'll cook a steak outside on the bbq using lumpwood charcoal rather than stick it under the grill ...... it just tastes so much nicer Twisted Evil 

although I like the smell of wood burning whilst it's burning I don't like the smell on my clothes or hair afterwards Embarassed still it's worth it to sit all cosy at the side of a campfire in the evenings. Very Happy

We like using our charcoal burning BBQ, but then we are pyromaniacs. affraid lol! 

Its all part of the fun waiting till its ready to cook on supping on a cool beer or glass of wine. Then finding out its nearly gone out and starting again.   

A friend of ours has got one of those big gas BBQ's and personally we don't think it tastes as good or is as much fun, you might as well wheel the cooker outside.

I was looking around for a BBQ which didn't take up much space and wasn't over the top price wise.

I bought one similar to, if not the same as, this one which differs only because of the brand name:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

When folded, the BBQ fits into a box measuring approximately 12" x 6" x 1" and you could use the assembled article as a stand for a disposable BBQ. The cooking surface measures 12" x 12" so adequate rather than generous but if the capacity is on the small side you could buy two and they would still take up less room and cost less than some of the equival

It is by some way less expensive than other kit referred to in this thread!

I've not used the BBQ yet, but I have assembled it and it seems capable of doing the job. I think it looks quite natty too. The BBQ got a 5* review from a Millets' Customer but the product is cheaper at Outdoors at Sports Direct. Not noticed any outdoor gear in any of their shops in the retail parks but it may be worth checking in order to save on postage if you have an outlet near you. At £10 for stainless steel it seems quite a bargain - maybe even a stocking filler at that price!

They look really good value, we got a couple of small folding bbq's from Asda this summer ...... mainly because we had forgotten to take ours and wanted a bbq so we opted for a small one that we could leave in the Dandy for chances we forget the large one. So impressed we went back and got another one Laughing

My Esbit portable bbq has lasted well for several years now, doesnt bend or buckle in the heat and collapses into it's own bag with room for charcoal - [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] just seen they do a stand now too!

On the right is an old gas can that I use as a stove or heating, it's cooking bread here.

or for a real portable bbq I take a Honey Stove to the beach!  Collect a bit of driftwood and you have noodles and sausages or grilled haloumi!
