The Best BBQ Models for Camping Trips
Camp trips are so much fun! Setting up the tent (hopefully without arguing), putting on the hiking boots for a bit of a tramp or a bush bash, trying to find the torch in the dark, falling over in your sleeping bag, and just listening to the sounds of nature.
One of the most quintessential parts of camping is having a barbie. In fact, if you’re camping, really, it should be a barbie every night! While many campgrounds have barbeques that guests can use, they are usually few and far between, and often scummy from not being cared for correctly over time.
That means that the best option for your camp barbeque is your very own portable mini BBQ. You can pack it up along with the tent in the back of the car, and off you go. These small models are easy to use and easy to clean so check them out!
The Weber Baby Q
The Baby Q is currently reigning supreme at the top of the portable mini BBQ game. This gas model is a great little barbeque that’s easy to take along with you on camping trips, easy to light, and can cook far more than it looks like from the outside. In fact, the Weber Baby Q can cook for up to 6 people at a time – that’s enough to satisfy the whole family.
The Weber Go-Anywhere
It’s all in the name with this one. The Weber Go-Anywhere literally can go anywhere. Unlike most of the Weberbbq designs, this one is a rectangular style that looks more like a traditional camp stove from the outside – however, don’t be fooled; this is a charcoal griller designed for hibachi style grilling. The lid of the BBQ acts as a windshield which is great for open grilling in windy conditions, where otherwise you may struggle.
The Weber Smokey Joe
For people who love their traditional Weber models, the Weber Smokey Joe deliver. This little kettle BBQ is a perfect size if you are a couple going camping – or for families, upgrade to the larger (but still highly portable), Weber Jumbo Joe. The charcoal griller is perfect for throwing on some snags, marinated chicken, or some eggplant steaks for the veggos out there. Love the size of this little beauty with the style of cooking on the backyard Weber that we’re used to.
The Everdure Cube
A newcomer to the portable BBQ, the Cube looks more like a little esky than a barbeque. This new range from Everdure by Heston Blumenthal comes in 4 different colours and features a nifty bamboo prep board built into the design of the barbeque which can certainly help when you’re getting food ready. It’s quite a small BBQ – one of the most miniature ones you will find, which makes this only really suitable for solo or couples camp trips. This is a charcoal griller, like the Weber Go-Anywhere and Smokey Joe models.
There are plenty of portable barbeques on the market these days, so finding the perfect one for camp trips away is easier than ever before. We believe the Webers are a great choice for their grill space, portability, and reliability; however, it always pays to research your options fully to see what is going to fit your lifestyle the best.
If you are buying a camp BBQ online make sure to check out the dimensions carefully to ensure the BBQ is going to be big enough to fulfil your needs. There’s nothing worse than having to cook batch after batch of food when you want to relax!
