  • which portable bbq would you recommend?
  • Here’s my portable BBQ:

    Works anywhere. Moorlands, dry forests, near open gas works, etc.

    I’ve got a son of Hibatchi – very good, with a well thought-through design.

    It is very quick to get up to cooking temp, a slight downside – it tends not to burn for as long as conventional BBQs.

    All with this lovely weather upon us the old portable bbq needs updating. I am torn between a Hibachi Grilleto or a Weber Smokey Joe. Does anyone have either of these and if so would you recommend it? Thanks folks!

    I Have a Weber Go Anywhere as I prefer rectangular grills to round. Just right for 3/4 people and you can fit the charcoal and other bits inside.

    Weber q120 (With shock horror GAS!!!) not to start another big argument but you can bbq on gas and still be a real man, the whole of australia can’t be that wrong

    If you can cope with gas we also have a Weber Q120 in our beach hut and its very very good.
    I’ve inserted a snap connector in the gas hose that allows us to change quickly between a big gas cylinder (which is cheaper to run and is what we use 90% of the time) and a small gas cylinder which makes the whole unit very easy to move around and is great if we’re cooking on the beach/on another beach.

    I’m not sure this is the same one but I had a lend of one of these for a while, fab…

    Much in the spirit of the old hibachi really except easier to put in a car. Son of Hibachi also looks brilliant but never used one.

    I have just left the grilleto (son of (affecting your wallet) hibachi) to self clean after it’s second use in two days. I flipping love it!!! Had it for a year now, was ace in Scotland on hol in the summer, 3 bar bs on the beach whilst we were there and one late night star gazing affair. It is honestly brilliant and the snuff out pouch thing does work but o wouldn’t be putting it straight back in my car boot, NASA science or not!! All in all 8.8 out of 10

    Had the Weber Smokey Joe and now have a Weber Go Anywhere and a Grilleto aka Son of Hibachi.

    The Grilleto is very clever and has proper cast iron grills but the Go Anywhere is a better bbq to cook on – esp for more people: Longer (for big skewers etc)more controllable, burns better and has a lid which helps cook bigger stuff.

    >not to start another big argument but you can bbq on gas and still be a real man<

    No comparison – Gas is p1sh. Australia’s welcome to it…

    I use a cobb oven – not cheap, but brilliant. Outer wall stays cool, so you can use it anywhere or even move it whle in action. It also hot smokes and has a moat affair which drains fat away from what’s cooking, can be used to add flavour and keeps what’s cooking moist. Does chicken amazingly. Fill the moat with water and lemon juice for moist lemony chicken. Just brilliant

    >not to start another big argument but you can bbq on gas and still be a real man<

    Nothing to argue about – you’re wrong

    Non of these barbeques sound particularly portable. I know the cobb etc are movable but they require an accessory kit with them that doesnt really make them very portable. They dont pack down much and require special fuels.

    My portable barbeque was given to me a couple of years ago. Basically a square bucket that folds down to flat. A grill and……..thats it. A bag of quick light and you have a barbie that will cook for the family then chuck some firewood on it and you have a fire for the night to sit around and chat.

    I think it cost about £10 new.

    I got one from John Lewis that’s made like a magazine rack, and folds completely flat. Genius design.

    EDIT: JL don’t do them any more but (clicky)


    Thats a similar idea to mine. Mines a bit smaller and square though

    Ive had that one of molgrips but cant say it’s great. Lasts a season maybe but rusts to hell, paint burns in the heat.

    Our paint hasn’t burned. Some of the grille bits have gone a bit brown but that always happens. Sure it’s not the perfect barbecue but it’s 25 quid and takes up almost no space at all in your car. This is why we got it. Ours is three or four seasons old.

    just ordered one that Northwind suggested

    looks like a good buy, we’ll see when it arrives 😉

    We had one of those. Gave it away – freed up room in the car, and the replacement rattled a lot less.

    Its a portable barbeque. As long as the grill is clean, who cares about the rest of it?
