    As I type this we are sat out side with the cadac in motion cooking a chilli. :thumb: yesterday we had bacon sarni's and a BBQ Saturday. We like the cadac linked off the LPG tank so nice day the wife cooks outside. :thumb: got ours with tesco points, so got the top of range one for about £45 bargain.

    Most people who "like it" never actually barbeque with it, they use the big paella pan or the frying pan. As a actual barbecue Ive never seen a worse designed one. Too many parts to clean after cooking even a small amount.

    Then when you realise that you only use it with the big paella pan, you might as well use a smaller gas ring below that superb pan, rather than the lumpy cadac with its stupid bent legs, that just won't stow efficiently I now just use the big cadac paella pan with small one ring burners that you can buy for a tenner. In fact I've cooked breakfast for a hundred people using exactly that setup below.

    Hi
    We just have the small version had it for 5 years , yes a bit of cleaning if you use it for a BBQ, but sometimes we just use the gas ring for curry or paella etc, we stand it on a folding paella stand to save bending down (saves the poor old back) lol, the cadac fits in to a small bag for storage, we find it ok for the two of us.

    We have the Safari Chef LPG version and like it.
    Big enough for us.

    I wouldnt consider any kind of BBQ other than the disposable type...nothing to clean.
    That being the case I couldnt give an opinion on any other than this one: Ebay Item number: 221079171207, which I found to be a complete piece of crap. Waste of money.

    That said, the Cadac does what I want it to do, so cant fault it.

    All about preferences, I suppose.

    Peter, I think the smaller version is a better, especially for efficient stowing. We only used ours as a gas ring which is why we dumped it for the cheap gas ring shown above:thumb:

    Have had one of those for years. Plug it into the outside BBQ socket and use the big round cast iron griddle for BBQing and also use it with the pressure cooker outside to save the steam in the van. Best BBQ ever.

    The Cadac Safari Chef is a brilliant bit of kit and if you have an outside gas point on the van even better used it a lot great for fish ,and other meats loads of uses ,and never had any probs cleaning ,as for the one with the disposable bottle wouldnt bother with it .:thumb:

    We have a Cadac Carri chef and we like it. We use it for all kinds of cooking but admittedly less BBQ and more griddle, fry pan and the skottle which is pretty good for stir frying and cooking meat in sauce.
    I loaned it to my son who managed to set it alight by forgetting to put the deflector in (he didn't admit this straight away) but Cadac replaced all the parts that were ruined free of charge.
    We like it because of the variety of meals we can prepare and it packs down small enough to go in our underbelly.
    So no we're not selling it.
    :winky:

    I've got an LP one for sale, and a spare griddle/grill plate and BBQ rack too if anyone is interested (to sell separately).:Cool:

    Regarding the HP version - don't bother with it as it just doesn't get hot enough - if you get one, go for the LP one.:thumb:
