Portable BBQ perfection
BBQuack - 6 months ago
You can build this thing in 5 mins and you don't need any tools.
The cooking chamber is compact and thus keeps the heat of the charcoal from radiating away into the air, giving you more cooking time than you'd expect.
This fed 4 of us easily. 4 burgers fit on the grill, no problem. As do 4 sausages and if you're feeling posh, 4 tin foil parcels of Salmon.
I used a fraction of the charcoal I use on other barbecues I own.
Perfect for outdoor cooking. Well worth the money.
Fantastic for the money

Absolutely brilliant little portable BBQ cooked a few burgers on it and they where perfect. Didn't take long to get the coals going and it stayed hot way after I had finished cooking. Only thing it lacks is a lid but we solved that by using one of our steel wok lids that fitted perfectly over the top. Get your coals right and your away.
This product is the perfect, small BBQ,

If you are looking for a bbq for one or two people, this is perfect.
Having seven charcoal bbq’s in my collection, I have a good idea of what makes a good bbq & this little beauty ticks all the boxes.
As you should with all charcoal bbq’s, line the ash pan with silver foil. This has the added benefits of reflecting the heat upwards to the grill (where you want it), keeping the ash pan in good condition over the years & also allowing easy disposal once cold.
The parts for this bbq are all made surprisingly well for the price, it’s a very solid little bbq!
Don’t expect to cook enough food on it for a family as it’s nowhere near large enough, but perfect for just one or two people.
We use ours for camping, the handle which stays cool all the time is great for moving it if need be.
All in all, it’s well built, burns well & is easy to clean, you couldn’t really want much more from a bbq of this size.
All this for such a small amount of cash - look after it & it will give you many years of great bbq times!
Maybe the designer should tried this out?

Yes, it's cheap but it should still work. The fire bucket has no holes so the charcoal doesn't get any oxygen and goes out. Suggesting that the main bucket should be lined with foil raised a question mark with me about the heat generated so I suspect that it wasn't properly tested.
I had to dump the charcoal in the main bucket to get it to work.
Apart from its ok - not much else to go wrong!
