Portable BBQ

Morning Guys & Gals

I am trying to find a portable BBQ that will run off the bayonet fitting under the van that has already been down pressured from the two bottles on the A frame.

We currently have a Gasmate Cruiser which is perfect other than the fact it needs its own bottle. I've been on to Gasmate and they say a conversion kit isn't available as it would mean running through two regulators. It is a shame as we really like it but it does mean carrying a third bottle.

Does anyone know of anything similar that will do the job?

Cheers

Phill

we use a weber babyQ with an off the shelf hose (without regulator) from kleenheat. No problems. Pete

Cheers Pete & Geoff.
I was thinking of one of those but wasn't sure if it'd run off the van supply.
Great. Looks like I'll be shopping again today.

All the best

Ditto here, we run the Webber BabyQ off a bayonet without problem.

I will suggest though, when travelling, wrap an occy strap around it so as to hold the lid firmly shut otherwise it will rattle and get fatigue cracks. It happened to a friend's bbq.

I have a Weber baby Q, Great bbq! I made a box just big enough for it to sit in from 10mm ply. Protects bbg and I turn box over and use to sit bbq on. Use its own bottle or bayonet fitting on side of camper.

Van is great and the right choice for us.
I'll double check the BabyQ's Friday when I go get one. Temprature gauge isn't essential though, as the van does have an oven, so as I always like to have a Sunday roast, we won't go hungry.
Cheers guys

The BabyQ is a great piece of equipment. Be careful to get the new model with the higher lid and temperature guage. The higher lid is necessary for roasts etc which it does perfectly. A lot of salesmen in BBQ shops will try to sell you the old model with shallow lid without mentioning the new one. It is worth going to a Weber specialist shop. You also need the proper Weber trivet - cheaper ones are't as sturdy and don't fit properly. We also bought the Weber pizza stone to fit the BabyQ and two pizza trays. The Weber makes the BEST pizzas! You don't need the trolley for travelling - ours sits happily on a folding stand originally bought for a camping stove. Otherwise a table is fine. Lynne

I'll also recommend the Weber BabyQ for travelling. I upgraded to the bigger lid but happily roasted chooks, lamb and beef before I did that. The bigger lid makes a difference though. I bought the new lid last year and love the temperature gauge. I've had my Weber for 6 years now, it's still going strong and is the best BBQ that I've used.
