    Good article. I prefer the taste of food cooked over a charcoal BBQ, but it isn’t always convenient or allowed. I carry a foldaway charcoal BBQ with small bags of instant light charcoal. I also have a Cadac Safari Chef (canister version), the baby brother of the Carri Chef, and have used this for many years. It is a greatly versatile bit of kit, which gives you another cooking facility. I bought this for use in my tent camping days, but have used it for days at the beach and as an additional BBQ when having family over. Now it’s in the essential bits of kit that stays in the van.

    I may be old fashioned but I still prefer to cook over charcoal. I use a Cobb oven (use briquettes as they are much cheaper than Cobblestones but are slower to light) which is a very useful device that I seem to use more and more. Wonderful for roasting chickens.
    I also have a Weber Kettle BBQ which is a bit big to take with me so that usually stays at home but there are lots of folding barbecues availabl. I am also considering one of the smaller Weber Kettles. Superbly built and designed to last a very long time. I have used a 30 year old example that was still working perfectly, spares are available if necessary along with a huge range of accessories’
    It does take time to light charcoal but if you light the BBQ before you prepare the food to go on it that usually takes care of that. Choose your fire lighters carefully; as some, but not all, produce an unpleasant smell until things are burning properly.
    Also be carefull with siting your BBQ dont leave a burnt patch of grass. Many sites will happily supply you with bricks or concrete blocks to keep off the floor if you need them.

    We have used a Carri Chef for over five years and fine it great – easy to use, versatile and compact.
