    We have a Cobb "BBQ" which isn't gas of course but to be honest we are a bit disappointed with it. The problem is it isn't what I would call a BBQ. It is just a charcoal powered hotplate.

    This means it can cook things but you don't get what I would call the true BBQ flavour which you get when the juices drip onto the hot coals - whether they are charcoal or gas heated bits of rock. Our BBQ at home is a Weber and it is brilliant. I've cooked whole chickens on it.

    Some of the gas BBQs suggested above look as if they may suffer from the same problem - there isn't enough information on the pages to tell.

    All I'm suggesting is check how they work if you want a proper BBQ. The heated hotplates are fine for pizza but not for meat in my experience. Although they are easier to clean!

    Which BBQ

    Has to be the weber curve had a cadac lots of messing building it.Weber is self contained would recommend buying the trolley as well saves bending over it does every thing it says on the tin.

    the Cadacs mentioned above come with a variety of cooking surfaces...inc a wire mesh/grid option which does allow fat to drip into the burner pan and if coals were added would give the same smokey taste.
    The other included options are a cast iron griddle plate, smooth one side and ribbed the other...ideal for that char-grilled effect if not the taste.....and a skottle pan
    Also an additional option is a deep wok......

    We bought without the name, I just Googled and only found those.

    I made the effort to help and gave an honest opinion of a great product. No need to scoff.

    I like a proper charcoal barbeque, love the smell on a summer evening. However I prefer it to be someone else's as I am not too fond of barbecued food.

    I think it depends what the OP wants to cook, a cadac can do eggs and bacon fried tomatoes mushrooms etc for breakfast or pancakes. Curries, roast chicken, paella, casseroles as well as sausages and burgers, steaks etc.

    I've had one like yoricks we used it on the beach with the kids, the best bit was throwing a load of driftwood on it and using it as a fire pit. Was rubbish for food.

    Cadac or weber

    It looks like the vote is split between the Cadac & the Weber ?

    Think I will see if I can find somewhere nearby to look at both (Cadac Chef & Webber Q1000) ?

    Really only for using as a BBQ & not for cooking breakfast or every day meals.

    Certainly gone off the original idea of the Marc-O 3000.

    Thanks :thumb:
