This post may be ripped down because it may conflict with our current sponsor, but here goes anyway.......

Prior to buying my Cobb, I was looking closely at a Weber Gas ' N " Go, which is no longer available due to legal constrainsts on the handles getting too hot. If I was a little quicker, I could have ordered one from NSW whilst they were still legal in that state.

I bought the Cobb, and might I say, it was not a case of second prize as some may think. The Cobb is my MAIN STAY cooking device during winter, note........winter. Not allowed to use it in Natioal Parks which have exteneded fire ban seasons.

I remember calling Cobb and asking if they were considering a gas conversion, to which they replied......no.

How many people here on this forum own a Cobb?, or...... are thinking of purchasing one?

I sort of figured that a collective voice on the issue of a gas conversion may just be the thing to get one made by the manufacturer.

I'm probably shooting in the dark, but I figure it's woth a try.

a small gas blumbing job may achieve the DIY result for your self.

First sign of madness is when you start anwering your own posts...hahahahaha

I don't have a Cobb either and I doubt if I will ever buy one...no more space in the truck to store things!

Cheers

Okay David, now just might be a good idea to delete this post......... before Mr. Cobb discovers no-one has bought his oven.

Can't understand why though, it's the Bee's Knees, really.

Someone suggested I do my own conversion, I might blow up in the bush, then there'd be no-one to answer any posts about the Cobb!

We've got a cobb too Ian = and we love it - but in the fire season we revert to using the gas BBQ. I can't see any reason why you couldn't take your Cobb to a gas fitter and get a conversion done, though. Or do it yourself! I can tell you from experience that you are unlikely to get a response from Cobb as I have been asking them whether they plan to market a foil lining for the moat to facilitate easier cleaning and am yet to have a response of any kind.

Yeah, I've thought about that. What about those little Alfoil trays that fit under elements & burners for stove tops?

Bradley,
Good idea! Wonder if you could Cobble (pun intended) it into the base of a camp oven pot, twould save spending 170 big ones or so on a Cobb, and not matter so much if you stuff it up.
Apologies to Mr. Cobb,
Glenn B.

We have a Cobb and it sounds like a good idea but....

We have a Coleman stove and use a plate on that for barbecuing stuff. The Cobb we mainly use for cooking big meals like roasts that we can't do on the hot plate. We have also used it to cook a cake - Jen even got one on her birthday (and it was orange and she wanted chocolate and I got found out about it when boasting on the net one time! I even was Tsk tsked hahaha).

Because we use it for slow meals I am not sure if I would really use a gas conversion - can't imagine leaving the gas on for ages and for fast meals we use our stove and plate.

So to summarize - Na.

Andrew
