I'm wondering whether anyone has a good recommendation for a good electric portable bbq for the caravan?

keep in mind no inverter or gen set will run it, or will struggle anyway ...
can i ask why electric ????
a big electric frying pan would be best i would have thought, you will have a clear glass lid as a bonus and easy to store ....

I just checked our Sunbeam Kettle King. It draws some 2 kW. You'll need a long power lead!
Surely, gas is the logical choice.

I use a Breville health grill plus, it's a bar type variable heat control, drip tray underneath, great inside (on stove top exhaust fan going) or outside under the anex, listen to the steaks sizzle and have a beer.

Another alternative which can minimise power consumption and is an option is a small single Inductive cooktop with either a plate or frypan directly on top.
We use ours for that type of use as we have no gas in the Oka only 12v or 240 from the inverter and solar.
They are pretty cheap on ebay, light and can be sat on a table outside. See ebay auction number 251217742142 for the type of thing I'm talking about. They have switchable power levels so can be run on smaller inverters and as they work quickly don't need to run for very long. they also have a temp setting so the unit will supply short bursts to maintain temps.
We have 500w of solar, 480ah of batteries and an 1800 PSW inverter.

Just brought a Weber Baby Q , never used one before and have been trying it out home to make sure was what I wanted, (is a gas thingy) but is great does roasts etc and is small ( about 20kg) plus gas bottle. I am going to take in lieu of stove, worked good on a table not too heat if you happened to use plastic table, easy to clean, and you know the best part you do it outside the van. you can get them with flat plate (extra, not dear) and pizza plate(extra not dear)
