Qs on BBQs and/or Weber Go Anywhere

Hello, I have a single ring gas stove but need more options so was thinking of the Weber Go Anywhere (coal) BBQ.

Am I right in thinking almost all campsites would allow one?

After you have done your cooking can you add wood and have a small fire in one? Or would this melt the handles, or be frowned on by campsites?

Can you cook fish fingers and chicken nuggets on a bbq (yes, one of my children is that fussy!) - and if so, how? Straight on to the grill plate, or on tin foil? Direct or indirect heat?

Thank you in advance!

The Go Anywhere has quite tall legs so I would imagine that most sites would allow it. You could put bricks on the grass underneath.

I think you could manage a small fire in a Go Anywhere - it would be very small though. We used to have one of the zinc bucket BBQs, a 'Whitstable Bucket' - not one of the chi chi small buckets, a proper Whitstable Bucket sturdy tin bucket, and that was excellent for a fire. But it did have to be put on bricks because it doesn't have legs.

Yes, you can cook fish fingers and nuggets on a BBQ, I would put them in a foil tray with holes poked in the bottom, to stop them disintegrating and falling or roll into the fire. I have a fab thing which is always on the sale in Sainsbury's, BBQ wok which would be very handy for things like nuggest but mine has a long handle and was about £3 in Sainsbury's. It does lovely sliced mushrooms marinaded in oil and whatever (often HP sauce, on our rather non-Gastro trips!) and cooked over the fire or BBBQ.

Have you thought about a Cobb oven? Or a campfire grill for cooking directly over your fire? But that can be a pain if you haven't time to let the fire get down to a good cooking level.

We go to sites that allow camp fires - I think the more regimented CC Sites for example, would have the eeby jeebies at a fire in a bucket.

We have a Cadac Carri Chef. The only thing it wouldn't do is be a fire. Gas powered, and it can be a 'normal' BBQ, or you can put a griddle in or skottle and even a pizza stone - there are loads of accessories. We tend to do breakfast on it all the time now so the caravan doesn't stink all day.

Thanks, will check into all the others mentioned before I rush out and buy anything!

Probably a bit late but have you thought about the Weber Q range of bbqs www.bbqs2u.co.uk/8-weber-q-bbqs A lot of people at our eurocamp site seemed to be using them. i believe some of them can connect to a caravan's gas supply or use a disposible type gas canister as well. Plus there is an electric option. I prefer the taste of charcoal bbq, but these portable Qs look very nice.

Hope that helps.

Always good to join a bbq discussion, zombie or otherwise. We have a cadac for when we have access to the gas. Generally it's quicker and cleaner but can be a little temperamental in the wind. We also have a "son of hibachi" which is a proper charcoal bbq. Heats up quickly and comes with a special pouch so you can pack it away even if it hasn't fully cooled down. Brilliant for picnics or bbqs on the beach. The info might help some of you.
