Choosing the Right Barbecue for You

Choosing the right barbecue for your adventure depends on a few factors like:  

  • How many people you’ll be feeding. 
  • How much space you have to transport your BBQ. 
  • What style of camping you’ll be doing – motorhome, tenting, roadtrip

Smaller groups and families without a caravan or motorhome, need something portable like a Smokey Joe, which is both a compact and practical charcoal barbecue. If you don’t have access to electricity, then a gas barbecue is the perfect choice.
