Thread: Portable gas barbeques

  1. #1

    Portable gas barbeques

    I am looking to buy a portable gas barbeque to take down the beach, something that will fit in the back of the rangie, but not having a lot of luck in my search.
    Does anyone use one that they can recomend, please.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    I have one of these - (Hot ozi)

    Gasmate barbecues, outdoor heating, camping and leisure

    I got mine at BCF - it comes in a 40x40x5 box (Not inc gas bottle). It's a basic design, and can do with some mods ( some shim between the shaft and top assembly so it doesn't wobble as much). Otherwise, I can't fault it.

    The Aussie made Weber Q is the best thing around and just cooks great.
    The problem is the price.
    But it will last for a very long time.
    Available in three different sizes and has many options .
    The hood set up allows extremely quick cooking times if required as well as baking food.
    There are a few cheaper throw offs of the weber.......I do not know how they perform.

    It is a little on the larger side, but Bunnings $99 two burner BBQ.
    We use one, fits nicely in the back, and the legs fold up so the height ends up being about 20 - 25 cm tall.

    Personally prefer the 3 burner Coleman duel fuel stove, burns on about any liquid fuel, has 2 burners for hot plate for BBQ and 1 burner for kettle or pot for steaming veggies.

    As it burns hotter than gas BBQ cooks quicker and uses less fuel

    Dont need a gas bottle as fuel container will last about 2 hours cooking time or you carry a 10 litre container smaller and more compact than gas bottle for extended camping

    Buy a fold up coleman oven and can even cook cakes and roasts while using other burners for cooking

    Great with wok for asian style meals as well due to high heat on flame

    Use wok with oil and have fish and chips in the bush something you cant do on other cookers

    If 3 burner too big for your space get the 2 burner model

    Weber Baby Q or Q300
    Exxy but good.
    Useful at home too - we do most of our roasts in it.

    I've got one of these Gasmate Rio things. IT does the trick quite well and works without the stand if you can't be arsed packing it all.
