You know the show season is upon you as the sweet smell of BBQ cooking fills the air. Here are three great portable solutions for you to consider this summer
On the ground
Are you one of those who hate putting a dirty BBQ in your pristine Land Rover? This Spare Tire Mount BBQ Grate is an ideal solution, and perfect for cooking either on the ground or over a naked fire in a constructed fire pit. When you're finished cooking, this ingenious grate hooks securely over your spare wheel, keeping it out of the way and saving valuable packing space. Crafted from durable laser-cut stainless steel with aluminium legs, the grate features a flat-pan grill and a braai-griddle section, making it versatile enough to cook everything from fried eggs and stir-fried veggies to chicken and thick-cut steaks, bringing a touch of campsite luxury to your outdoor meals. Securing the grate for transport is easy with a Spare Wheel Step and Strap Ratchet 4M Endless, also from Front Runner. Then once home, you can whip it off and clean it ready for next time.

Off the Ground
There’s something to be said about cooking over an open fire
There is a primal pleasure in cooking over an open fire, especially when out on an adventure in the middle of nowhere. Yet it’s not always possible or legal to make a fire on the ground. This BBQ and fire pit combo was designed for those times. This solid and convenient unit allows you to grill up a feast, or create the much-loved cozy fire pit ambience.
Setting up the BBQ takes less than 30 seconds
Setting up the BBQ/Fire Pit is a breeze, taking less than 30 seconds to assemble. The durable stainless steel construction ensures it can withstand the rigours of outdoor cooking while being corrosion-resistant for long-lasting durability. Once you’re done grilling or enjoying the warmth of the fire, the grill folds down effortlessly and fits perfectly into most expedition-style boxes, making transportation a breeze. If you want something smaller, the BBQ/Fire Pit also fits perfectly into Front Runner’s compact Camping Bag. Don’t forget to wait until it cools down before you pack it away.
Gas stoves offer a range of benefits, including portability, convenience, cleanliness, safety, versatility, weather resistance, and regulation compliance. They are compact, lightweight, and easy to transport, making them ideal for Land Rover adventures. In addition, gas stoves are easy to use and produce instant heat. No need to wait for the wood to turn into coals before you can start cooking. They are also less affected by weather conditions than open-fire cookers, making them a potentially more reliable option in outdoor settings. The only thing they don’t do is scare away the lions or hyenas, which may or may not be a problem.
Cadac is recognised as one of the world’s leading modular gas BBQ brands. Its extensive range features even-heat distribution, non-toxic ceramic coatings, and modular interchangeable cooking surfaces. They’re also highly versatile, and cookers such as the 2 Cook 3 Pro Deluxe can accommodate a range of cookware offering various cooking options to suit your camping and cooking style. This ingenious cooker has two independent burners, each with an interchangeable, die-cast aluminium, non-stick flat grill and griddle top. It also comes with two pot stands and a coffee pot holder, and with everything packed into the carry bag, it's easy to transport from the Land Rover to your cooking spot.
No need for wait for wood to turn into coals on a gas stove
The 2 Cook 3 Pro Deluxe (and all other CADAC cookers) feature the proprietary GreenGrill ceramic coating that is organic, PFOA-free, and non-toxic. This special coating also allows you to cook with less grease or oil and retains heat better than traditional non-stick surfaces, meaning you use less gas while cooking.
