Talking BBQ's and Flagpoles!!

Can anyone suggest portable charcoal BBQ's, We 'd like to get a compact one, that we can keep in the van all the time, and use when we want, it need to be neat and tidy in size and style, and come with its own storage bag for when it not in use. We'd keep it in the front locker probably.

Another thing my son and wife have asked me to look for is those very tall fibreglass(or whatever there made from) flagpoles, people attach to the front of their wans and have wind things flying from them, is there a site online that sells them? And does anyone have any views for or agains't them?

Thanks in advance for the help.
Cheers
Al.

Hi Al,

This is where I get mine from http://www.lifebreeze.co.uk/shop.php...&cat=windsocks

Re: the BBQ have you thought about a Cadac easy chef, a great bit of kit for the price and strips down to store in its own bag.

Hi Al
Kites and Wind socks


Turbine windsocks can be flown from telescopic poles Windsocks are a fun way to mark your territory or identify your camper, caravan, or beach location.
Help your children pick you out from the crowd, use with one of our telescopic pole from 3 to 9 metres.

Can't advise on the BBQ but the flag poles can be bought from any fishing tackle shop from as little as £6

Hi, the flagpoles most of us use are simply roach fishing rods. Lots of markets have them if they have fishing stalls, and they're not too expensive.





There's also the posher 'proper' flagpoles, but these are much more expensive

re the BBQ if you google Cobb and have a look at them I think they may be what you are after the only problem is their cost . We use a Cadac as it has several cooking surfaces including barbi grid but it is not charcoal. Our charcoal barbie is a Webber, we tend to take the Cadac to France as lots of French sites do not allow charcoal barbies. What ever you choose enjoy the cooked results

BBQ's is a personal choice, there are not only charcoal versions but also gas ones as well. Prices range from £5.99 for charcoal or approx £19.99 for gas ones.

have a look here for choices http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Portable+BBQ's&sourceid=ie7&rls=com.micro soft:en-GB:{referrer:source}&ie=UTF-8&oe=&redir_esc=&ei=kunDTc3CL8GFhQeAj9mCBA#sclient =psy&hl=en&rls=com.microsoft:en-GB%3A%7Breferrer%3Asource%7D&biw=1280&bih=737&sour ce=hp&q=Portable+BBQs&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=Portable+B BQ's&pbx=1&fp=edc1e8e99e75b7df

Thanks for all the suggestions, Looking at the different ones suggested, Gas might actually be an option, we carry 2 light weight gas bottles with us, so would it be ok, to use the spare gas bottle when needed. They are pretty light so could lift it out and connect it when needed, do they use the right gas for BBQ's?

Thanks again,

Cheers
Al.
