Bring a grill on your bike

I just saw this grill. i haven't bought it yet, but it looks very promising, especially for Africa, where you would use wood anyway.
It think it should have been made in aluminium though.

I've been using a grilliput for about 3 years and can thoroughly recomend the product. The only real drawback is that some campsites in Europe do not allow ground barbecues because they leave a burnt patch on the ground. It would be ideal for Africa but you may have to dig a hole for your wood fire as the grill is not that high off the ground (125mm).

+1 We used this, great for BBQ in Argentina!

But fiddly as hell to put up and needs a good clean before you put it away.

I have one too - (marketing victim....)
Technically by design, it is a clever bit of kit but:
1- it's heavy
2- it's fiddly
3- it's expensive
I found a folding grill at a supermarket for 2 euros - brilliant - and weighs very very little-

You are right on all 3 counts. I have had one for about 2 years and have used it once I think.

Good size, but 3kg seems heavy ontop of everything else that needs to be carried.

Agree the 3kgs is a lot.

Sorry to hijack the thread but on the other end of the scale at only 15grams I found this ThinkGeek :: Grandpa's FireFork Actually I think I can make my own...

Oh and In Australia in almost every park there are free barbeques. Just thought I'd mention that..gif" border="0" alt="" title="" smilieid="249" class="inlineimg" />

got one of these;


folds flat about the size of A4 paper, works good but needs a strong plastic bag to stop contaminating everything with grease and soot after you use it. only a few £s, more fun than a disposable BBQ, can burn wood, charcoal, or petrol soaked soil/sand (desert rats eat your hearts out) and campsites have been fine with it so far because its off the ground and the feet even stay cool enough for table tops.
its ultra thin mild steel, when it falls apart im going to copy it in 20swg stainless or titanium, but so far its hanging on in there with no sign of collapse. a real bargain.


EDIT; sorry, i should have resized the pics before posting, now it wont let me
