    Anyone any knowledge of a small gas barbecue? We don't have loads of storage, not for large items, anyway, but would like to take one on our trip to France in May.

    Seasoned MHers will know that standard barbecues are not welcome on many sites in France (and Spain I guess) but allow gas barbecues.

    If we are to get one, we will need to get the MH in for some work to fit an exterior gas point.

    Regards

    Steve

    Get one of these. They fold up and stow MUCH better than a Cadac. What you save over the cadac will keep you in BBQ meat for two years. They are surprisingly good for £20 we used one for years, no scrubbing afterwards. Cadacs, cook well, but they are not easy to erect when under the influence. And the cleaning!!!! I will only use the Cadac if the kids are there to clean it. . Loads of people will tell you how easy they are to clean, just a wipe with a damp cloth, don't believe them. I like a beer during and after a BBQ and having to spend ages cleaning it afterwards ruins the occasion for me. You just have to light this one, burn off the burger and fat from the last outing and your ready to go:BigGrin:

    Sorry to cross swords with the Matser of the Universe, Jim Lad, but we think the Cadac is pretty well unbeatable as a general cooking tool.

    That said, my cooking involves eating, Fairy liquid and tea-towels. I'm pretty well stuffed, and the Senior Partner, is, well, pretty. Everyone happy.

    Ever one to save a few pounds (sterling, not Troy), this looks interesting. What is it called? Any idea where they can be found? (other than your MH!)

    The person that wrote this has a sense of humour, it looks a nifty bit of kit though

    The one jim showed is a gas tabletop bbq (most camping/outdoor shops sell them) and they are good for bbqing i have one, i also have the compete cadac kit as this will cook everything from the bbq to a roast chicken and paella or a good english breakie

    A fun and practical alternative to a traditional stove or barbecue. This innovative multi-functional stove can do anything - from grilling to griddle cooking on a non-stick plate to flame cooking. (Ideal for drying seat of pants after stargazing in wet field whilst overtired and emotional).

    Cleaning, storage and transport are all made easy as the Party Grill includes a fat collection tank, (high cholesterol dripping butties at a dunk) a detachable grid, lid-lock system and removable legs. (great for unblocking Portaloo).

    Other features include, an Easy Clic canister connection, immediate heat control, piezo ignition. Boil time approx. 6 minutes for 1 litre. Operates off Campingaz CV270 and CV470 resealable cartridges. Weight: 2500g; Power 1350 watts (will double as Hubble telescope with requisite amount of Margarita imbibed).

    as stated a good sense of humour

    We bought a BILLYOH quite a few years ago, its excellent, ours looks like this, the side shelves slide in and legs collapse, piezo lighter button, its great:

    Heres one exactly the same on ebay, except ours cost £35:

    I am not sure if its obsolete now, this is all I can find online at the moment , maybe an updated version except ours runs off normal gas bottles and has a non solid grill

    THE CADAC SAFARI CHEF IS TRULY THE ROLLS ROYCE OF BARBEQUES.
    ITS SO ADAPTABLE WITH ALL ITS ACCESORIES.
    BOUGHT OURS NEARLY NEW OFF FLEABAY TWO YEARS AGO AND ITS FAB.
    WE EVEN USE IT AT HOME WHEN WE ARE NOT IN THE CAMPER!:BigGrin::BigGrin::BigGrin::BigGrin:

    The easiest way to get all the gunk off Cadac griddle plates is, once you've finished cooking, turn off the gas, poor on some water and it will bubble away (stand well back as it can spit!), it will loosen all the stuck on stuff, then a wipe over with kitchen roll and job's a good-un!:BigGrin:
