As you all know, we use the Cadac on a regular basis if not on a daily basis!
Its great for cooking all sorts of meals, quick, easy, no fuss and we reckon it uses less gas than the hob/oven.
Some of the things that we have cooked so far are, stir frys, every type of meat and fish imaginable either on the griddle or on the BBQ.
We have cooked some great fish dishes as it cooks fish very well, we have roasted pork, chicken and beef all turned out extremely well, along with the roast potatoes and parsnips!
Oh, and not forgetting the yorkshire puddings, they turned out great!
Full breaksfasts consisting of bacon, eggs, sausages, tomatoes, mushrooms etc.
Chips worked well, big thick chunky chips being the best!
Tonight we cooked chicken fajitas, which again is easy in the cadac as the dish pan is so large.
"M" wants to try and cook a cake on it! And Im up for doing a curry, all though we have done chicken tikka easy enough.
The cadac we bought comes with the reversible griddle with the ribbed side and a flat pan side, a BBQ dish, a pan stand and a lid.
We have found so far that we can cook ok with just these. I guess the skillet would come in handy, but there is nothing to stop you using the pan stand and a normal wok to cook. We have just used the flat griddle and that works just as good.
The roasts have all been in a normal roasting pan, sat on the pan holder with the heat deflector on to give a more even heat. Of course the lid was on.
We fire the cadac up, and then spray the roasting pan with a low cal spray oil, place the meat into the pan, stick it on the cadac, and put the lid on. That simple!
The chicken was cooked for the first 30 mins with the breast side down, then flipped over and left till cooked.
The Pork worked well, we even got crackling! The beef, was amazing, both liking our meat on the rare side, it cooked it a treat.
Ive even stood out in the rain with an umbrella cooking on it! A really good investment, and easy to use and move around which for us is obviously important.
I appreciate that with a cadac you dont get the smokey and in some cases burnt taste that you get with a traditional BBQ but to be honest Id rather have well cooked food than over cooked food.
I guess if we were looking for a down side, its not so easy to clean, caravan sinks not being the largest it does make it a bit tricky getting it washed.
The inside is also a task to get clean if the fat drips into it, and we have had a flare up which was fairly spectacular!
But, that aside, we think its great and worth every penny, so if you havent got one, start looking around for some deals.
Any questions on it or if you have any suggestions of things to try and cook on it, the more outrageous the better. Ill give anything a go!
