Which BBQ Is Best For Me

Read our top tips on what to consider when you are choosing the right BBQ for you.

Whether it’s for camping and caravanning adventures or at home on the patio for alfresco summer nights, choosing the right barbecue takes a little time and research. 

The options for outdoor cooking are, nowadays, much more extensive than in the past. There are barbecues of all shapes and sizes that will suit your needs perfectly. 

Gas or electric?

The first choice to make is the one between charcoal, gas or electric. 

Charcoal barbecues and camping are not always an ideal combination. Many campsites in the UK and Europe do not allow the use of charcoal barbecues, making gas the most common choice. Some advantages of choosing a Cadac gas BBQ;

  • Convenience – lights at the turn of a button and is hot enough to cook in less than five minutes. The ability to easily adjust your cooking temperature makes it a reliable and precise way of cooking. 
  • Easy-Cleaning – all Cadac modular cooking surfaces can be cleaned with hot soapy water or put into the dishwasher. Additionally, most BBQs in the Cadac range have a removable fat pan, tray or cup, simply lift out and pour away any grease that has collected during cooking.
  • Long Lasting – Cadac gas barbecues offer superior build quality and are backed by two and five year guarantees. Rest assured you will be cooking on your Cadac for many years to come!

For apartment living where fire restrictions limit the use of gas barbecues, the Cadac E Braai with heat-resistant frame, uses mains electricity as the power source. 

Where will you be cooking?
