Cadac  Empty Cadac

Post by Page Turner on Mon Aug 26, 2019 12:30 pm

We’re looking at investing in a Cadac, as we’ve coveted one for years and now have an outside gas point to connect one to.  We’ve narrowed it down to 3 options, does anyone have a recommendation for which is best?  What we’re after is something compact and easy (in the knowledge that no barbecue is without some difficulty) to clean.  
Our top 3 are: 
Safari Chef 2 (have noticed there’s a lite version, is that viable?)
Grillo Chef
2-Cook 2

Any advice appreciated smile!

We have the Safari Chef 2. Use it at home and with the van. Have found it easy to use and clean so far.

At home we use a large Calor cylinder that we have from the days when we didn't have refillable tanks - you can get an adapter to attach via a piece of rubber tube to the regulator so the BBQ plugs in just like on the van.

When I bought the Nuevo with an external gas tap, we bought a Cadac Carri-Chef 2 BBQ. It was excellent - but heavy. After 2 years, I sold it on gumtree (snapped up) and bought a Cadac Chef 2. That suits us better: it's large enough to cook for 4 people, and amply so for 2; it's compact, and the legs are long enough to permit cooking whilst seated; it's very quick to assemble; the grill pan is small enough to be easily washed in a sink; it doesn't take up much payload; and it's extremely well made.

We have a Safari Chef 2 and find it is great for two people.  Any more than two might be a struggle.  It comes in a zip up bag and does not take up very much storage space.

I have the Cadac 2 cook 2 pro, the two hot plates are ideal for cooking mixed meals, I.e eggs on the flat plate and square sausage ,bacon on the ribbed plate. I have cooked up fillet steaks to a treat on the ribbed plate.
Much lighter than our previous safari chef, fits under the bench seat.for easy storage ( when cold )

I have the safari chef & love it. Not sure what light means but suspect it hasn’t got as many components, I love them all except the pizza stone.

Thanks for all the advice, we went for a Safari Chef 2 Lite.  It was a lot cheaper than the non-lite version, the only difference seemingly is that it has a plancha plate (half grid half smooth) instead of a full size one of each, which appealed anyway regardless of the lower cost.

Just got to wait a couple more weeks till the van comes back to us & we’ll be putting it to the test soon afterwards. smile!
