I confess, it's all my fault. It usually is!

I shall go stand in the corner.

I'm daft and proud of it.

No Tuggers, it wasn't you and even if it was it's much more fun to blame Zebedee.

However, he was right about the griddle pan thing especially if you can get hold of one with a folding handle for ease of storage. We found ours in TK Max for about a tenner.

That's a good price indeed

That one only comes with the griddle, the other linked one comes with a pan which I would say is a worthwhile investment.

We've just replaced our old Cadac Carri Chef (Mk1) after 10 years of extremely faithful service, it's had a lot of use in its life and served us well.

It's replacement? Well, that's a Carri Chef 2 (with the pan etc). We've kept the paella dish we used to use with the old Carri Chef which we found was great for making curries, stir fries, Bolognese sauce, chilli con carne and well, Paella. We'll see how the new pan works out, if I find I don't need the Paella pan in the MH any more it'll come home for making Paella there.

I found I had to use a wind-break with the old Carri Chef, I'll see how the new combination works.

We use one of these. Ideal for 2-4 people and rapid to set up and clean.

Uses very little charcoal too.. And very light weight.


Just sayin ... LOL

Wow, that got all busy

Thanks for more input and quality banter as always

I'm looking at this one, although the paella pan might be better instead of the additional pan that comes with it. We used to do various types of paella on the beaclare

I didn't bother buying one as I carry a wok and use it on the pot stand that comes with the CC2. Its great for curries, spag bol etc...

On the CC2 the lid hooks onto the legs to provide the wind break. You may have to position the whole thing accordingly though depending upon wind direction.

I like to use big words which I don't really understand so it makes me look more photosynthesis!

From experience, how many sites allow charcoal BBQ's? Do many restrict to gas only? I was surprised the other week to be allowed to light a BBQ on sites.

Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit, understanding is not putting it in a fruit salad

A lot of campsites, including the Club ones, allow charcoal BBQ's but NOT wood burners.Found this out at the New Forest last year.

Don't be silly all the time ask your question.

Fabulous piece of kit and easily stowed. Use it mainly to take on beaches away from my campervan. Best ever use was sitting on the beach in Northumbria cooking moules mariniere. Glass of white wine and rustic bread to soak up the lovely stock juices. Yummy
