Ive got the CADAC but found it too big to lug around so i have also got the COBB it a great bit of kit as i am sure several members will agree, & i believe you can get forum discount from Cobbs..T:

I have a few BBQ's, but all to damn big for any trip so I tend to goto Aldi or Focus for each trip, buy a BBQ for under a tenner, build it, bbq on it then bin it

I have a nice Broil King for when I'm at home, and a little charcoal one which I bought from Sainsburys/Tescos a few years ago - 9.99 jobbie :D

Make sure you take some bottled water to help cool the BBQ down (if its coal)

I have a cadac safari chef, quite a bit smaller than the standard cadac they sell two versions 1 uses the disposable gas canisters or you can have a proper regulator for a 4.5kg bottle or bigger.
fits nicely in the back of the van and doesn't take up mush space, searched around and got it for under 50 heres what it looks like

Cadac looks good, ive ordered a firenze but i'm gonna have a look at the cadac as it looks a lot more versatile - thanks a bunch for all your replies.

Disposable one for me, I like to travel light and don't want the mess in the van :D

No substitute for a Cobb, if it's an evening by the van and you want to eat proper (as distinct fro just trad bbq) .
But use disposable 3 jobbies for quick few burgers occasions.

I have a BBQ like the one from Towsure! Its only got two settings i.e. Low (which doesn't do much unless you have flamin' burgers and High which is what I usually use.

You don't get the BBQ taste you would with a Coal BBQ, but it does the job. The two rods fold up to hold everything together, or fold down to act as a stand.

Its fairly simple too - screw gas bottle onto pipe. Screw pipe onto BBQ. Turn on, light and wait for the lava rocks to heat up. Next, add food.

Hi,

I have the Weber 120, and it is very good for use out in the van. They are fully weatherproof so you can leave it outside (lock it up if you are worried) and do a top job. I did change the reg to allow CG 907 bottles, as I don't think the mini cartridges are so easy to come by on campsites. Recommended...

Cheers

Son of hibachi bbq, it is fold up and put in a heat proof bag still lit,And into the van,the bag snuffs it out. It lights folded up and acts like a chimney, drawing air in at the bottom then you open it out after few minutes and your cookin, nearly 2 square feet of cooking space, 70,brill.:ILU:
