Hooded BBQ's (portable)

Postby amanda » Wed Jul 29, 2009 8:19 am

I'm wanting to buy a small hooded BBQ for camping. It must be able to fold down to a relatively compact size, but I'm not wanting to spend huge dollars on it, somewhere up to about the $250 mark is as far as I want to go. Does anyone have anything that fits the bill they would recommend?

Hi Amanda

My recommendation would be to go to Bunnings and have a look. It is quite amazing the range they have and probably will come in your price range.

The one I have is a Jackaroo from Kmart but I think it may be too big....worth a look though. I paid $149 for mine in a half price sale.

Friends of mine have a Baby Q, but it was quite expensive.

Cheers....

the WebberQ's like all webber products are simply fantastic. But they arent cheap!
I think the BabyQ is about $300 or so!

I like gypsy would suggest a trip to bunnings to see what they have that suits. Also I have to ask - why do you need a hooded BBQ for camping - you have a camp oven surely?

Yes, but I'm not always in an area with an open fire, and I would also like to use it at home in the courtyard.

I found what I was looking for ,and it's a little ripper - I'm so pleased with it. It packs into it's own carry case, is easily cleaned, and is plenty big enough for my needs. It's no Webber BabyQ, but then again either was it's price tag!

I got it on line at Deals Direct for $79 - no idea what brand it is. I cooked plum and chilli marinated lamb cutlets on it last night and they were superb.

It looks the same or at least similar to the one that Aldi was selling a while back....same price too. A friend of mine bought one and she is very happy with hers.

Sorry, dumb question as we are still sorting out what works best for cooking -but does this mean you can use a camp oven on those portable stoves with 2 ring burners? We have a Coleman one with a little gas bottle we hook up. We have just bought a grill to go on top and that is great.
thanks
