With the first signs of warmer weather and a blissful bank holiday promised, there is no better excuse to get friends and family together for a barbeque. The Barker family test out the new Calor Grill-2-Go gas fired BBQ – a versatile and compact barbeque that offers three ways to cook and is ideal for family camping trips and bank holidays in the garden. See for yourself the tasty results.
Ideal for festivals, days spent on the beach, family camping trips and dinners al fresco with friends at home - The Grill-2 Go is a go anywhere barbeque for those that love cooking outdoors.
With hungry little ones to feed and a tight deadline before my extended family needed to set off home, the pressure was on to see how quick this Grill-2-Go would perform. My brother in law stepped up to the task of assembling the grill and within ten minutes (sure this can be whittled down when you are more au fait with it) we were ready to rock and roll. The only sticking point of note was the wire legs were a bit fiddly to connect to the calor gas canister, but when in place the reversible cast iron cooking surface formed a stable platform to cook on.
Although it is a versatile, take anywhere BBQ this is not the sort of thing you would fit in your backpack. It collapses quite neatly into its original box but it only runs off a 5kg cylinder which is quite a large size and would fill up a considerable amount of space in the boot of a car.
This is a really powerful and compact barbecue, which offers three ways to cook - boil, sear and grill. So with burgers on the griddle and buns to butter it only took 10 minutes before the food was ready to eat - result! What was easy was there was no preparation time to stoke up the BBQ like there is for traditional charcoal BBQ's, it was literally turn the gas on and you're off. We were thinking of investing in a kettle barbeque for the summer but this Grill-2-Go is just perfect as you can see it quite happily cooked 10 burgers plus a red pepper in one go. And the next time we are on a camping holiday or even on a day trip it will be a handy travel accessory.
