  1. Hi all, We are lovers of Charcoal BBQ's but have a massive one at the house already so don't want to double up and definitely can't fit our home BBQ into the 'van. . We have used the disposable BBQ's before which are ideal for the 2 of us for a couple of burgers, sausages and a bit of chicken but finding something half decent to put them in so you are not cooking off bricks or the legs that come with some of them (give about 2 inches ground clearance) seems to be impossible. . Has anyone found anything that is high enough to use while standing or anything else that does the job? Something not massive as we are a bit tight on storage room (not weight though. .) Thanks for any help anyone can give Mand
  2. We or I should say I like using our Cadac Carry Chef or whatever they are called these days, anyway the big version. We have cooked all sorts from stir fry's to stews and all in between. The only problem I have is that if there is more than a mere gentle waft of wind it blows out when on the low setting. I have read that people put toilet roll holders, tin cans etc somewhere inside to prevent the thing blowing out. I tend to use a wind break if it is windy, and that helps, but not perfect. So who has discovered the perfect solution? Are able to cook in a force 9 gale? Please give clear instructions on how you do it, and where you put tin cans etc. Photo's would be great. Thanks
  3. Hi all. Just wondering, when purchasing a brand new van, factory fitted with external BBQ point, is the hose connector normally provided, or do you have to purchase seperatly? Your input will be much appreciated
  4. Has anyone got one of these and if so how do you rate it? Can it be used on normal folding camp kitchen units without setting them alight?
  5. Can't seem to find a way to attach the pipe to this point - it's different to the one on our previous Sterling. Didn't want to force anything and risk break something. Anyone have experience of this type and can advise?
  6. Recently purchased the Cadac Grillogas and had a brilliant weekend cooking on it, even between the heavy showers and gales, and it didn't blow out once. We only have the reversible grill plate at present (I emphasise at present ) which was great for breakfasts and steaks. I will be purchasing the lid next I think but my question is. ... Has anyone found a good cheaper alternative to the paella pan? It seems a great cooking system and so easy to clean but the accessories do add up. Any suggestions most welcome. PS. Hope you all had as much fun as us over the Easter Break
  7. One to look out for. Used the BBQ GAS POINT this week for the first time in a month. The plastic moulding had cracked. Not the lid but the under plate with the gas tap bolted to it. Couldn't be seen as it was concealed by the cover. Appears to be caused by attachment screws being over tightened. Either that or it's a batch of bad mouldings. Either way lift the cover and have a good close look.
  8. Having spent 2 weeks in France dodging the site wardens coz I only had a charcoal BBQ, I am now preparing for my next visit and looking for a good quality gas BBQ unit (is that a contradiction in terms ). I already have a Cadac Carry Chef, not convinced by the griddle function other than the solid plate and of course, the paella pan is brill. So, what to do. .......I'm drawn to the Weber Q1000 but it is a fair bit of dosh with best price around the £160 mark; at the other extreme I'm looking at units from places like Go Outdoors, TowSure etc retailing at about £30. Confused - of course.

  10. It seems an odd time of year to be buying a BBQ but there are some decent bargains to be had. I've had my eye on this Sealey BBQ for some time http://www. ebay. co. uk/itm/Sealey-BBQ04-Gas-BBQ-Portable-/331303721964?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item4d233d9bec But not at that price! I discovered it badged as a 'Crusader' and at £59. 95 so I had to grab it. I think it is identical to the Sealey model. (All made in China anyway). http://www. leisuredepot. co. uk/crusader-v739. html I bought £15 worth of other stuff so got the free postage. I just thought I'd post this and do a kind of review on it when I try it out (which could be tonight in the garden if the gale stops blowing! It seems you can only buy this BBQ online so I had no chance to see what the quality really was. So far I'm fairly impressed. The metal thickness of the main body (that carries the burner) is quite good, I was expecting very thin tin but you can barely flex it with your hands which is good to see. The punched 'flame tamer' plate the covers the burner is also thicker than the one on the last portable BBQ I had which is good because it rusted away. The gas control valve looks like the basic type which is found on the cheap table top BBQ's (Royal etc). But we'll see how controllable it is when cooking. It's quite versatile in that you can unclip it from the stand and fold out it's own small legs. However when folded flat on its pull-along trolley it would take up a fair bit of the boot of a car. It won't bother me because I tow with a van :-) We love BBQ'd food when it's properly cooked (not burnt to a crisp!) and we cook on our full sized Outback gas BBQ (the old much loved Webber finally died after 15 years!) even in Winter if the weather is good enough. I like to be able to cook with the lid closed when I want to which is more of a challenge with the smaller BBQ's, so we'll see how this one does!
  11. Hello all, This is my first posting so hi to everyone and I need to ask a question!We recently bought an Elddis Supreme 2 berth caravan which is a dealer special based on the Avante. The question I have is on the external gas tap connector. On our previous caravan a 2 berth Swift the bbq point was a quick release type and I thought the point on our new an was identical. How wrong was I ? It looks the same,but it won't push up and there is insufficient room to connect our existing pigtail into it even if it did push up as there is not enough room as the bottom of the housing is in the way. I am completely mystified! I am obviously missing something completely or it has been fitted incorrectly. As the dealer we purchased from is up north a good 4 hours away I'm not quite sure how to proceed with resolving this! Any ideas fellow caravanners? All answers gratefully received! K 😳
  12. I've been looking at what cooking device to use. I'm typically a charcoal barbecuer, Weber kettle style, very against gas versions. So the decision on what to get to use when away in the van has been a tough one. The conclusion I've come to is that it is the option to cook outside more so than to barbecue. As such, and a surprise to myself, I've decided that making the most of the external bbq point on the van is the best choice. Enabling us to cook outside a lot more, in more room, with the dog around etc etc. So having narrowed down my fuel choice I found myself looking at the CADACs that everyone seems to have. But there is a big jump in the range. The Eazi chef would be ideal, were it not for it being so low down. I get a bad back a lot, so it doesn't seem like a great idea for me. Maybe the best option is for me to find a lightweight table that isn't too high, to put it on. But then it's another piece of kit to deal with! But to get the one that has longer legs it is about twice the cost. Is there any other version which I've not seen? I've also been considering the Webers, but the CADAC does seem the ideal option due to its versatility. If I was going for charcoal, then I've heard that the COBB is a great solution. They use charcoal packs is that right?
  13. Esteemed Forumites. ..... So Kiera Clipper has safely arrived with us, thanks to Bicester Caravan & Leisure We had a great weekend away last weekend and are off for a week from Saturday to give her a full test. .......first impressions are that the Clipper will live up to every one of our expectations and everything appears to be working perfectly. .. Now to my request. ..........I don't wish to completely curse the Bank Holiday weather, but one thing I am looking forward to testing is the Gas BBQ point. ..!! I have the BBQ and the tube, but I don't have the connector that plugs into the side of the caravan - our previous 'van (a Bailey Unicorn Barcelona) had the red twist fit connector, which will clearly not fit the side of the Buccaneer. .... Can anyone help me to order/buy the correct part (or should Elddis have provided me with one, like Bailey did??) Fingers crossed that someone is in the know - thanks in anticipation as always
  14. I don't know about you, but OUR favourite part of caravan holidays HAS TO BE the eating! and what better way to enjoy the outdoors than with a Barbecue??
  15. This week we are very excited as our friends at BBQ Talk have just launched their brand new website - and we have to say, it looks fantastic! In honour of this auspicious occasion, we have ‘come over all barbecue’; reminiscing about delicious barbecue meals we’ve enjoyed during trips away, relaxing in the open air with good company. Yes, when the weather is fine, barbecues and caravanning go hand in hand. Of course the summer is the perfect time to cook food outdoors; long, warm days offer plenty of opportunities to fire up the barbecue, and it is so much better to cook food in the great outdoors without the hassle of working up a sweat indoors. However, at any time of year you can enjoy the delights of cooking and eating outdoors. So just what is it about eating food outside that makes it taste more delicious and creates such a memorable experience? Perhaps it is the distinct smell of barbecue food combined with clean, fresh air that purifies the senses. Or, perhaps it is relaxing on a gorgeous campsite after a busy day sightseeing with a delicious meal in one hand, cold beverage in the other, watching the sun go down over a spectacular vista. With the stress and demands of normal daily life seemingly miles away at times like that, it is no wonder that we are getting a little misty-eyed when we recall these experiences! From traditional steak and sausages, to pizzas and even desserts, with a little bit of imagination practically anything can be cooked on a barbecue. In fact, many seasoned caravanners barely use the kitchen in their vans at all, choosing instead to cook up meal after meal on their trusty BBQ. And if you’ve never cooked bacon and eggs on the BBQ as the sun comes up over a mist-shrouded campsite, then you are seriously missing out on one of life’s greatest pleasures! So to enjoy all the delights that eating outdoors can bring, an essential piece of equipment for any caravanner is a barbecue. It is well worth taking a little bit of time to research the market, as there is so much choice available these days. From gas and charcoal BBQs, to electric and portable, plus essential accessories including tongs, baskets, smoking planks, rubs and sauces, there is a lot more to barbecuing than you might think. To help you decide on the barbecue and accessories that best suit you, first consider your eating likes and dislikes. Plan your meals, then decide exactly what equipment you need. Barbecue cooking involves a certain amount of skill and innovation, but with a little practice, the right tools, creativity and great advice from your caravanning neighbours you can become a professional outdoor barbecue chef in next to no time. Plus don’t forget our friends at BBQ Talk - a true one-stop-shop for everything BBQ, including advice, hints and tips, loads of great recipes and essential products to help you create mouthwatering dishes each and every time you fire up the barbecue, whatever the season!
  16. Thinking of getting a gas BBQ for the caravan. Only need a small one (just for two) and don't need many fancy extras like paella pans, etc. Ideally I'd like one that is easy to clean, store and set up and is relatively light. Can you suggest models I should look at and possibly suppliers, please.
  17. Later this year a new BBQ web site called BBQ Talk will be launching with the possibility of a section for caravanner's. The name's a coincidence by the way, even though its being developed by the guys in the next office to CT headquarters. They are looking for some input from any keen BBQ'ers and the more they get with a caravanning angle the more chance there is of a decent caravan section. The current site at the address is just a few holding pages. We've seen the real thing in development and it's looking good. So any caravan related BBQ tips, recipes or the like pop over to www. bbqtalk. co. uk
