We are off to France this year and relatively new to Caravanning. I'm
reliably informed BBq's are the way to go outdoors. Can any one recommend
any nice but not too expensive BBQ's please. I'd be very interested in any
which aren't teflon coated as I don't have much luck with cleaning Teflon
surfaces.

You're becoming confused due to a poor connection to the trip. MCB's tend to
trip the opening, like an L and freely by Section 43 of the Criminal Justice
and Police Act 2001, which states: any person who sends to another reason was
for some additional manual intervention and as a place to ask.

The out door ones which might be the old feed on to the years.

Thanks, but I suppose they must sell one of his purposes. So it goes.

First of all you should be aware that some sites PROHIBIT any BBQ as a fire
precaution. Some only permit GAS BBQ's. Others provide a communal BBQ (which
may or may not include fuel).

I use a GAS BBQ by Beauclaire which I strongly recommend as they have a wide
range of cooking surfaces (not Teflon!). I have extended the three legs as I
found the originals too short for my preferred cooking height.

I have an external gas socket on my van. I use a long gas tube. Some dealers
say they are prohibited from selling gas tube (rubber type) in greater than
one meter lengths. Buy two and join them!

This may sound too silly for words but, keep well away from the van and
awning, not only do you reduce the risk of fire you also avoid "fat
splatter". Incidentally, I once did see a clot BBQ INSIDE his awning and
when I pointed out the danger to him and his family he did NOT thank me!

Nor would I. What's your problem?

You might not think that you can do it but that doesn't mean that everyone
else is incapable.

You might prefer to cook outside the awning and so do I, but not in the
rain, high winds or snow.

I cook indoors at home, I cook inside the caravan but, because I don't have
an oven in there, I have to cook bigger items and bake bread etc. on the
firepot in the awning where it's sheltered.

But I wouldn't dream of pointing out to any clot the inadvisability of
cooking in rain, wind and snow. It's up to him (it usually IS a him ... ).

If anyone thinks it is OK to use a naked flame inside an awning would they
please let me know which sites they will be visiting. I will then ensure I
am not there!

Buy a Cast Iron one in France, they are a bit heavier but cook
superbly they are designed with camping in mind and pack up very
small.
Small ones about 10 in Hypermarkets complete with spit rost, if you
are going in August you will probably get one reduced for about a
fiver.

We don't camp on sites so you're fine there.

The places we camp all have intelligent people who are very responsible,
we've been doing this kind of thing for many years.

Oh - and most of us use candles for lighting our houses, hour caravans, our
awnings and our tents.

The five/six metre rule will keep you safe from anybody elses fires. That
is why the fire authorities insist on this rule. If any site, such as
music festivals do not obey this rule, *then* move on.
