Interesting but he either doesn't know what he's doing with the roast veggies or doesn't fancy cleaning the moat which is a major hassle. You're supposed to cut the veggies to the size of the moat, par boil them and roast directly in there with some oil to get them crispy. Without the oil they stick and burn, but with it, the oil gets baked on to the moat first time out so it looks like an old chip pan. If you've ever tried to cook with minimal oil in a stainless steel frying pan you'll appreciate where I'm coming from. Cobb themselves say that when roasting, minimise removing the lid as much as possible, so you've gotta be a bit of an expert to prevent the veggies burning on one side when one side is so close to an uncontrollable heat source and you're not able to rotate them regularly. Instead the guy in the video has gone for a bunch of soggy veggies in foil so he's gonna have to try and crisp them on the grill while the bulk of the heat has probably already dissipated and his meat is either getting overcooked or going cold. I think Cobb have taken a concept originally invented to reduce bush fires in South Africa and marketed it extremely well as an allrounder requiring additional purchase of a bunch of additional (expensive) accessories to get close to that goal. Imo it still falls way short given the exhorbitant price.
Haha.. I thought that was how you signalled.. “Dinner’s ready!”
I agree - BBQing isn't really a strong point of the Cobb. It can bbq stuff but I think it works better as an oven which is why I put oven in the title. If people just want a bbq -there are better choices like the weber go anywhere but this is a bit more flexible. For some down to earth cooking experience with a Cobb - this channel is worth watching
I've had a Cobb for years, the teflon coating doesn't last and it's hard to clean. Got a knock off of a Lotus grill with a cast iron grill similar to this https://www.amazon.co.uk/Oren-Portable-Assisted-Charcoal-Barbecue/dp/B09FPW7NC6/ref=asc_df_B09FPW7NC6/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=570358243595&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=16068484357423014249&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9046581&hvtargid=pla-1675488108874&psc=1 So much easier to clean, cast iron is reasonably non stick if you season/preheat and no chemical impregnated briquettes. Only thing you cant do is roast but Ive had mixed results roasting in a Cobb.
Wow that looks great the pro deal looks the best - I’m super tempted - fishing republic have had some serious good deals this week
