    Any recommendations for a BBQ mobile enough so it can be taken in the van and maybe used occasionally at home?

    Assume it needs to be raised so not to damage a pitch, if allowed on site.

    Charcoal fuelled I assume is best?

    Never used at home but used many a time in the van. Folds totally flat. Stored above engine under the cushion.
  4. You can often find the exact same one(but under a different brand name) in Lidl for about £12:thumbsup: had one for a few years, they are excellent and take up very little room when folded.
  5. We have one of those

  6. Have used the folding grill at home and on the beach, but not with the van... think it might be a bit pongy tho.

    We use a lotus grill now. Not the best for space but very clean and easy to pack back in its container

    I've got one like this, but paid about 20Euro in Belgium for it whilst on holiday last year. So far I've found it to be pretty good. Sits a little higher off the ground but still packs up relatively small.

    If you go for a 'notebook' type one, make sure it has a decent size 'flap' at each end to block the air rushing through the coals too quick. I had one many years ago that had insufficient air flow metering....used to burn through the coal in minutes, but dinner never took long! HA!

  10. CADAC safari chef if you want to go down the gas route . Great bit of kit and ready to cook with in a few minutes. I just use the spare gas bottle , bit of a bugger to clean but does what it says on the tin ...

  12. You must be forgetting to fill the fat tray with a bit of water before you start cooking

  13. Had one of these for a few years good bit of kit use it at home too
  14. Can't beat a Weber, or at least i couldn't till i bought my big green egg, not very van friendly though at 100kgs :eek:
  15. A Cobb to go with the Waitrose quinoa.

    Excellent machine stainless steel and hot.. I bake scones in it at Techenders.
    And one can use it on a wooden table with zero risk of charcoal falling out as there are several insulating air gaps between charcoal and table, and the charcoal is enclosed and there is a metal base
    You can touch the base while it is cooking.
