Just because you’re camping doesn’t mean you can't whip up a spectacular meal. Your choice of heat source is the first step. Will you be cooking on gas, a coal/charcoal stove, or over an open fire? For most, an open fire is the default camp stove, but various options suit different situations. Here are three great portable BBQ options for your next overland adventure, backyard cookout, or picnic.​

On the ground

The Spare Tire Mount BBQ Grate from Front Runner is a must-have for cooking on the ground or over a naked fire in a constructed fire pit. This ingenious grate hooks securely over your spare wheel, keeping it out of the way and saving valuable space. Crafted from durable laser-cut stainless steel with aluminum legs, this grate features a flat-pan grill and a braai-griddle section, making it versatile enough to cook everything from fried eggs and stir-fried veggies to chicken and even thick-cut steaks, bringing a touch of campsite luxury to your outdoor meals. Securing the grate for transport is easy with a Spare Wheel Step and Strap Ratchet. ​

Off the ground

There is a particular primal pleasure in cooking over an open fire, especially when out on an adventure. Yet it’s not always possible or legal to make a fire. Front Runner’s BBQ/Fire Pit was designed for those times. This solid and convenient unit allows you to grill up a feast or create a cozy fire pit ambience.​

Setting up the BBQ/Fire Pit is a breeze, taking less than 30 seconds to assemble. The durable stainless steel construction ensures it can withstand the rigors of outdoor cooking while being corrosion-resistant for long-lasting durability. Once you're done grilling or enjoying the warmth of the fire, the grill folds down effortlessly and fits perfectly within the Wolf Pack Pro, making transportation a breeze. If you want something smaller, the BBQ/Fire Pit fits perfectly into Front Runner’s compact Camping Bag. ​

Gas stoves offer a range of benefits, including portability, convenience, cleanliness, safety, versatility, weather resistance, and compliance with regulations. They are compact, lightweight, and easy to transport, making them ideal for RVs, tailgating, camping, and backyard cookouts. In addition, gas stoves are easy to use and produce instant heat. They are also less affected by weather conditions than open-fire cookers, making them a potentially reliable option in outdoor settings.​

Cadac is recognized as the leading modular gas BBQ brand across the world. The extensive Cadac range features even-heat distribution, non-toxic ceramic coatings, and modular interchangeable cooking surfaces. They’re also highly versatile, and cookers such as the 2 Cook 3 Pro Deluxe can accommodate a range of cookware offering various cooking options to suit your camping (and cooking) style. This ingenious cooker has two independent burners, each with an interchangeable, die-cast aluminum non-stick flat grill and griddle top. In addition, it comes with two pot stands and a coffee potholder, and thanks to a nifty carry bag, you can take it anywhere.​

The 2 Cook 3 Pro (as well as all other CADAC cookers) feature the proprietary GreenGrill ceramic coating that is organic, PFOA-free, and non-toxic. The GreenGrill allows you to cook with less grease and is more complex than traditional non-stick surfaces, so it retains heat better, resulting in lower gas consumption.
