Cadac Carri Chef 2 BBQ Skottel Combo Latest Review 2014

I've said it before and I will say it again, the Cadac is an amazing bit of kit and with the new upgraded version even better.

For those of you new to this a Cadac is essentially a gas BBQ with an assortment of pans.

I used one when I was full timing, cooking everything from roast chicken/lamb/pork/beef etc to a curry! As well as your more traditional general BBQ type food. I really don't think there is much you could not cook on a Cadac! 

In the above picture I am using the pan stand and a large flat pan bought from IKEA for less than £15.00

We also bought with this one a Pizza Stone, which slots into the top and that worked well, in fact it was rather rapid! With it up to full temperature of almost 200 degree's it cooked the pizza to perfection in just 5 mins!

A number of things were different on the new Cadac. Firstly there is now a temperature gauge in the lid, a handy addition.

The way that the pans sit in the base has also been modified and works a lot better now. The lid handle has been changed and a new starting switch and gas flow knob has been redesigned.

However with this version the griddle pan is different. My old griddle was reversible, griddle one side and a flat pan the other. This one only has a griddle on one side. It is non reversible. I guess the people at Cadac thought why sell one pan when we could split them up and sell two and make double the money!?.

So far I have only cooked a Pizza, breakfast and BBQ food. But I can say it cooked it all really well. Roast next!

If you are in the market for one of these then I strongly urge you to get one. It packs up small enough to lug about in it's very own carry bag and not only can you use it in your camper/caravan but when your home it is big enough to use in your garden. So save your money and get one of these that can do the lot!

There is a smaller table top version available. Personally I haven't tried it, it just looks a bit too small for my steaks, but it has it's place if space is an issue.

The only other thing I noticed different on this one was the cover. My old one had a sewn in handle on the top. All you had to do was pull on the handle and off it came. The new one doesn't have one. This may sound like nit picking, but the handle was handy for hooking over your jockey wheel winder or anything else to hand to stop it blowing away!

But all in all, very pleased with it. You simply cannot go wrong with one and if you are it's because your probably doing something wrong!

Till later..................
