Have caravanned for twenty something years and only ever used a real BBQ;
one that use's charcoal. gas one's are not BBQ's but outdoor gas cookers.
Butane burns hotter but solidifies at a higher temperature, Calor burns
cooler but continues working at and below freezing point.

Unless you're planning on camping on Pluto it's unlikely you'll get butane
to solidify.

, Calor burns
cooler but continues working at and below freezing point.

Generalised ********.

Calor is a supplier name not a product. They supply both butane (blue
cylinder) and propane (orange cylinder)

Butane boils at about 3C and therefore is of no use below that. Propane
boils at a much lower temperature about -43C (IIRC)

The freezing point of both i.e.when they go solid is very very low,
-187C and -138C and not relevant to this discussion.

It may be more complicated but is it better?

Strange, when i cook with a gas bbq, the food tastes as if it's been bbq'd,
the grease dripping onto the coals producing the smoke gives it that
flavour... dunt matter if those coals are hot from being burnt or from being
heated by a gas jet beneath them,

I agree, I haven't noticed any difference, our Cadac Global Grill has served
us for years.

I too - and still need a bucket of water handy once the BBQ is well 'run in'
