Portable Gas BBQ - recommendations?

Postby HW182 » 02 Aug 2018, 20:11

Hi all, I’m looking to invest in a small portable gas bbq - small so it’s not obtrusive while packed away inside the camper and preferably run on Butane (utilising the existing gas bottle used for hob/ fridge).

What do you have / would recommend ?

Thanks in advance.

A leisure gas tank under the van with a BBQ take-off ... most peeps seem to use a Cadac grill.

I bought a Cadac last year - works well, uses gas from the same expensive Camping Gaz 907 bottles that the van uses

Cadac carri chef

We've got a paella pan and a big domed lid for it too, and can cook just about anything on it, well anything you might want to while camping. Doubles as the house BBQ (and paella pan)

Cadac Safari Chef 2 for me. Uses same 4.5kg bottle that goes in the van (it will use pretty much any gas supply providing you have the correct regulator). Great bit of kit, easy to keep clean, ready to cook on in seconds and the kids love it for the ability to cook pizzas (which it does really well!). Packs away into a neat little bag as well.
