Briefcase BBQ Grill £6 @ Halfords (Free C&C)

Found 26th Jul
Pretty nifty little BBQ. Looking at an old thread when it was around £12, a member stated they are around 14 x 9 inches which seems a nice size. It's alright if you're after something cheap that will get the job done.

The Halfords Briefcase BBQ Grill folds into a briefcase shape for greater portability when travelling. Ideal for large outdoor events, the family sized grill gives a big grill area. A must-have for those who camp or hold events with family and friends.

may as well get a disposable one... it'll last longer X)

Just remember to make sure you let it cool before packing it away

Also, remember never cook inside a tent (Or bring the BBQ inside a tent after cooking) as carbon Monoxide fumes still comes off the coals and can kill you in the night while you sleep.

How many times are you going to use this?

TBH, you can get Disposable ones complete with the Charcoal and Fire Liter for a £1 each from Poundland,

Beware, I don't know about the Poundland ones, but in my experience cheapo disposable barbecues can be worse than useless. To avoid a miserable barbecue experience I would recommend trying one out before taking any camping etc.

Would be more useful if the grill lines were closer together and rotated 90 degrees.

Because disposable items are ruining the earth and if someone has one of these and uses it a few times and it gets left in the garage until next year then it is better than a bunch of disposables going into landfill or even worst just being left on the beach as I see sometimes.

Well Ive used them before and there fine, anything that invovel Flames or Smoke is dangerous.

Dont get wrong, Im not knocking the £6 Halfords Job, just by the time youve bought the Charcoal etc and it only gets used once a year..... againt £1.

Personally for Camping your probably better off with the current Halfords Mini Gas Stove on at the moment for £7.50 at half price.

Heat but accidentally tapped the minus

I agree with you, disposables are great if they work OK. I remember having ones that we had bought in supermarkets years ago that had heat that was still cookable on after an hour or more. But last year when I went camping with my boy I decided to save space and not take our Weber Go-Anywhere and rely on buying a disposable. Could we find any in any of the supermarkets we went in? Like hell we could. Finally we found one in a discount shop, not poundland, maybe a local indy. We lit it, and it stank, black stinking flame and smoke. By the time it had stopped flaming and smoking there was barely an heat left and we had to give up and fry everything which was a little disappointing.

Since then I've bought a mini "backpack" barbecue that I saw on here, which is remarkably good as a mini grill but useless as a pack-up barbecue because it doesn't fold down, and a Lidl folding grill which is OK but, too big, too heavy, and needs too much charcoal. What I really want is a folding grill like the one we once bought, I think, in Poundland 20+ years ago. It had folding sides with wire "skewers" that held the sides together and acted as feet. It was flimsy but perfectly adequate to cook on for two, and lasted several camping trips till it got left out in the rain at home and dissolved.

Edit I just found, on Ebay, a grill like we used to have. Not sure I would pay £8 for one though, even accounting for inflation!

Or just burn an old tyre. Smells the same as disposable bbq's.

Lidl ones work ok for me. Plus you don't have to clean them up or risk dropping coal dust in the car.

They're T055 to be fair, the grill sags burning the food and also the food sticks to the grill.

incidentally, I picked up this deal today and its tiny; ok if you camp alone, aren't hungry and are on a diet! Think i'll give it away / return it.... worth a punt for £6 I suppose.

I presume you are talking about disposable barbecues in the first part of your reply. But surely it depends on the make of disposable barbecue? I hadn't used one in years until my bargain store fiasco of last year, and I remember having really good results decades ago, with some, on camping trips. I can imagine there is a huge range of quality out there. So to dismiss them all as useless seems silly.

As to size of the Halfords barbecue, well surely it depends on how many you need to feed, and what sort of meal you intend to cook? There does seem to be a UK obsession, probably led form US grilling culture, that a "barbecue" should involve vast amounts of grilled meat, of irrelevant quality, being charred and served. For lots of us though, small quantities of perfectly cooked high quality grilled meats are only a small part of the meals we want to have in the big outdoors. And so a small grill, that can be taken anywhere, might be just what we want.
