    Slightly smaller than an old style dusbin lid and about 10 inch thick all in seperate little bags, if tight for space you can just take the bits you need and reduce thickness to about 6inch

    Got sick of struggling to clean the cadac after a few years and bought a campingas kitchen which is much more manageable.

    Weber 100 gas grill. Quite expensive £120 but one of the best bbq's on the market. Highly recommended :thumb:

    Low pressure or not?

    I've seen some cadacs advertised as 'low pressure' models so I guess that the 'standard' model is high pressure.

    Why the different pressured versions and which is best for buying for the camper and why?

    Hi Bryan
    I've got the small cadac safari chef, and it's the high pressure verion. This means it's run off the small canisters that you can buy from a builders merchant without using a regulator. I've also got an adaptor which allows it to be screwed on top of a campinggaz bottle.
    There is also a low pressure version of this cadac which is then connected via a regulator to any gas bottle.
    I think mine has a little bit more portability by enabling me to use a small canister and take the bbq on an exotic beach somewhere without having to carry a larger gas bottle as my hands will be full with wine and equally exotic chicks...I wish !
    The bigger cadacs I beleive are all low pressure and must be run via a regulator and are not as portable and she'd have to carry that one while I dreamt on.
    regards

    i bought the cadac carrie-chef deluxe at york last year. only used it once so far but very good.
    only fault is, if using the griddle plate it must be level if your cooking bangers or you spend so much time chasing the little buggers around the griddle + any oil runs to the edge.

    We purchased a Cobb Roasting BBQ and even though it was expensive, it was the best monsy we ever spend. Super BBQ and can fully recommend it. Have a look at their website.

    cadac for us, we have an external bbq point for ease of use and use the cadac regularly, morning for full English breakfasts or evening for BBQ's, get some mussels and watch the French watch you cooking their favorite dish with out stinking the van out (using the wok n lid) make the sauce with creme fresh, Roquefort and white wine, warm summers evening looking out over the sea, wish we were there now
