Cheap BBQ

Post by CC on Wed May 04, 2011 10:02 am

After reading Stevomar's post regarding the COB BBQ and being very impressed by the reviews I've read was seriously tempted to get one but was a little put off by the price (£100+)

Over the weekend we were in Sainsburys and saw this portable BBQ bucket for under £15 which looks like it could be suitable for our needs and certainly better than those disposable BBQ trays. It's designed like a bucket, with easy storage in mind. two metal grills give you two cooking levels.

It seems "Well built" for the money, so we took a punt and purchased one, thought we would give it a try and if it just lasts the one season it hasnt cost a great deal. Will probably go for the COB BBQ that Stevo recommends at a later date, but for now thought I would just mention this incase it helps another member!

Can confirm that after using this BBQ bucket on two occasions over the weekend, the paint is still intact and it gave off no black smoke! Whistle1

This pic shows it lit (2nd nights use) after an hour or so when the flames go out, it works a treat!



It doesn't even get hot to the touch, so don't know where you got yours from Ade? just_teasing

Hi Ade

It does look very similar doesn't it? (ventilation holes look bigger?)

You know you're not supposed to use petrol to light it dont you? Whistle1 snigger

Just looked at your pic again, can see now what the problem is!! It doesn't appear to have another galvanized bucket inside where you place the charcoal?? (is this correct?) also the internal bucket on ours sits off the bottom on a raised grate??

No wonder yours burnt the way it did scratch head
