These are normally £60-£70, they take the standard 220-227g Butane gas bottles that can be got for about £1 if bought in bulk.

Great for camping, parks, festivals or even your back garden. We've even cooked pizza on ours (lowest heat setting about 10 mins).

I've owned one for three years and used it over 100 times, but it's now time to be replaced, at this price I've bought 3 and will store them.

They come with a very tough carry case.

The grilling area can also be flipped upside down and then it can be used as a stove for pans and kettles etc.

This is gas so it's essentially just a gas grill and will never compare with charcoal but for us with our caravan this is superb, I can easily cook for the 4 of us with this. One gas bottles usually lasts me two BBQ's which for 50p a BBQ is a lot cheaper than charcoal would cost me (I also own a Weber Go Anywhere and will only use Lumpwood which is about £3-£5 per BBQ).

When buying the gas bottles try to stick to a decent brand, some of the cheaper ones lose pressure or don't have consistent pressure, they also rust easier when stored. Personally I only buy Campingaz bottles which I pay £39 for 36 bottles (ebay 221733397867).

They are also great for a morning fry up, I regularly use mine with my campingaz stove to do a fry up for 4 of us.

Don't these flare with fatty foods? Looks like the burner flame is going to be very close to the food. I've got one of these

which coupled with a standard portable canister stove (about £8) would be cheaper and better for meat, especially for caramelising steak and doing fry ups etc etc. Probably a lot easier to clean as well.

Yeah wonderful, when I'm in the middle of a Lakeside campsite needing to cook 20 sausages in 15 mins I'll get out a box of matches, that's really gonna help isn't it.

I get your point but part of the point of this is that the foods being cooked are directly exposed to the flames.

We take a griddle with us too but my go to cooking appliance for the past three years has been this little BBQ. We also have a slow cooker, oven and gas hob in the caravan, microwave, Weber charcoal BBQ and a little gas stove. This thing is just effortless and super easy to clean.

Infact our oven has never been used, most of the time we cook with this or a wok on the gas stove.
How do you stop it flaring, and burning everything to a crisp if exposing food directly to flames? I tend to avoid that sort of thing on my weber by moving foods that are dripping fat away from the coals a bit, can't see how you can do it on this grill. Maybe you like the acrid flavour of burnt fat/meat etc? Not my thing + could be more of a health hazard, although I read some marinades such as stout or beer reduce that risk.

Check the reviews or buy one, the food that comes from this is superb, steak, wings, belly pork, ribs, sausages etc, we've cooked it all. Great results using this.
This is a good deal
Thanks OP ordered. I am new to camping (& barbecuing for that matter!) May I ask why you prefer this to a cheap portable charcoal bbq such as the one linked to below:

hotukdeals.com/dea…911

As a complete beginner, which would I be better off starting with & which is best for camping overall? Thanks very much in advance for any help and advice provided

Just comparing pictures these you don't have to mess about waiting for coal to burn, easy and more compact for trips as can be taken in bag, less carbon monoxide, easier to clean, no black smoke going all over your tents or drying gear.
If you're the sort that gets an electric hookup at a camp site (like me!) then I can recommend Ikea's induction hob. They're £30 and cook in a fraction of the time that a gas hob does.
I bet these are a right b@stard to clean after use, personally I use disposable type when I'm camping and a proper full size one back home.
Thanks guys, keep the comments coming. I might even make an informed decision which is known to happen occasionally!
I have just come back from camping and a friend had one now Im looking for one as I was so impressed
cooking bacon & sausages was a breeze

Behave. Your ridiculous suggestion that instead of buying a barbecue people should just get a box of matches and forage for wood is as immature as your profile pic suggests you are.

If I had to guess, I'd reckon you're about 12 and couldn't start a natural fire "in the wild" if your life depended on it
Where is the code? Soz probably being thick...

Get both, there's no comparison to a charcoal BBQ, personally I have a Weber go anywhere (about £65) for my charcoal BBQ. If you're gonna be at the campsite all day then waiting 20 mins for the coals to whiten and having inconsistent heat isn't really an issue but if like us you're out and about and sometimes need food cooked quick but still with that BBQ feel then you cannot beat this. There are very few gas BBQ that take these cheap throw away bottles which in my opinion is the best way to go. They are very easy to clean and the gas lasts ages. Plus when the grill is reversed it's also a stove.

I don't have that particular product but we do have a Phillips induction hob. To say they are quicker than gas is completely wrong. Even my little gas stove can boil our 1.5ltr kettle of water in under a minute. The induction hob is about 3 minutes.

What power is your induction?

Wrong, to clean is a breeze, it all comes apart. We have a BBQ scrubbing brush, takes less than a minute, then at the end of the camping season we put all the metals in an oven shelf cleaning bag from poundland and it comes up new.

Disposable BBQ use briquettes which I am hugely against, they are not good for you. I wish more people would do there research on briquettes and then more would buy Lumpwood charcoal which if bought in bulk is similarly priced.

What power is your induction?

It has 9 power levels, 450w to 2100w.

It's Phillips branded that we bought from a Carrefour supermarket in France but in the UK the exact same one is tefal branded.

Although it's good for cooking I much prefer gas for speed and control.

Strange, I find our 2kw induction much quicker for getting things up to temperature, against our house gas hob.

Prefer the gas for normal cooking though.

Are you sure your pans/kettle work correctly with the induction job? I've never boiled anything in 3 minutes on gas, even at home.
Anyone received an email to inform them that their item is ready for collection yet? I haven't despite ordering on Tuesday
