Celebrate the 2024 season with a new CADAC BBQ…

blog / advice / accessories / summer / holiday

Caravanning holidays provide the ideal opportunity to get the BBQ out! It’s a time when you’ll have plenty of outdoor space to do it and it’s also a great way to bring the whole family together and get everyone involved. Caravan kitchens are fully-equipped and great for cooking but BBQs give you that secondary option when the weather’s too good to stay inside!

CADAC is renowned as the caravanners’ gas BBQ of choice thanks to their compact size, high quality design and ease of use. There’s much more to CADAC than just BBQs; they also produce a range of cooking equipment, utensils and essential parts to keep your sausages sizzling!


Now’s a great time to make your BBQ purchases for 2024; it may not be peak barbecuing season yet, but it’s a good idea to order your desired items now to secure them in time for spring/summer when you’ll want to get away regularly and enjoy some alfresco dining.


CADAC continues to innovate, offering a wide range of outdoor cooking and heating products that have won international awards over the years. CADAC has a range of BBQs, which broadly fall into two categories - gas BBQs and portable gas BBQs. Most are compact enough to be suitable for caravanning and the most popular choices include:

Grillo Chef 40 Chef Pan Combo
This mid-sized, lightweight barbeque has a push button piezo ignition with adjustable temperature control, allowing you to get cooking perfectly in minutes. The Grillo Chef 40 Pan Combo is robust, compact and portable; perfect for barbequing and grilling.

Safari Chef 30 Compact
The Safari Chef 30 Compact is the newest addition to the range. This ultra compact gas barbeque operates directly from a 227g bayonet cartridge and weighs less than 4.5kg, making it ideal for hiking, picnics and on-the-go grilling. Offering multiple interchangeable cooking surfaces, the unit comes with a ceramic coated BBQ grid and a flat grill plate.

Safari Chef 30 LP QR BBQ
The Safari Chef 30 weighs less than 4kg, making it ideal for camping and caravanning. The LP QR unit comes complete with integrated quick release coupling for quick action (un)coupling with a self sealing valve. Offering multiple interchangeable cooking surfaces, it has a ceramic BBQ grid, ceramic flat grill plate and enamelled dome lid which doubles as a pot for cooking.

Safari Chef 30 PRO QR
Weighing in at less than 4kg, the Safari Chef 30 packs away neatly into a durable storage bag with mesh side pocket for gas cartridge storage. The Pro QR offers multiple interchangeable cooking surfaces including a ceramic coated BBQ grid, ceramic coated flat grill plate, enamelled dome lid which doubles as a pot for cooking, and a stainless steel lid for use with the dome lid/pot, perfect for rice or casserole type cooking.

Carri Chef 50 Plancha / Chef Pan
Easy to build, use, clean and stow; this BBQ is compact and efficient. The Carri Chef 50 BBQ 2 Plancha / Chef Pan Combo comes complete with a ceramic coated BBQ 2 Plancha 50 and Chef Pan 50, multiplying your cooking options. With grease drainage holes for healthier cooking, the half and half Plancha cooking surface is ideal for all types of cooking.


Grillo Chef 40 BBQ Dome
Easy to assemble, use, clean and stow; the Grillo Chef 40  is ideal for cooking a variety of meals. This mid-sized, lightweight barbecue has a push button piezo ignition with adjustable temperature control, allowing you to get cooking perfectly in minutes.

E-Braai Electric BBQ
Designed for modern living, the E-Braai has everything you need to cook the very best authentic BBQ feasts, including smart technology to guarantee the best sear and taste! The cooking temperature can be pre-set thanks to an innovative auto-temperature control function and the digital LED accurately displays the cooking temperature via a sensitive probe that sits directly underneath the grill surface. Cooking diameter is 38cm.


CADAC offers a range of accessories to make using their range of barbecues that little bit easier. We stock a range of cooking trays, tapas dishes, pizza lifters and tongs to make your barbecuing a breeze! Items such as gas hoses, quick release adapters, BBQ covers and cleaning products also ensure the practical aspects are taken care of too. We have many items in stock in our on-site and online shop now!

Don’t forget the other items that may make your caravan barbecuing experience that little bit nicer - the right homeware to serve up on, comfy outdoor chairs to sit on and tables for serving up those barbequed feasts!


  • Tongs, spatula and serving spoons

  • Serving dishes

  • Tupperware to store any leftovers

  • Condiments such as salad dressing and of course, tomato ketchup!

  • Marshmallows (and wooden skewers) for toasting

  • Foil for wrapping items such as salmon fillets, jacket potatoes or corn on the cob

  • Cleaning products to keep your BBQ in tip top condition


  1. Pizza time
    Invest in one of CADAC’s pizza stones and you’ll be able to enjoy pizza as often as you like! Simply prepare your base and get adventurous with the toppings - no two pizzas need ever be the same! From pepperoni to hawaiian, veggie supreme to good old four cheese, you’ll be spoilt for choice!

  2. Meat feast!
    BBQs are the ideal excuse to focus on a selection of meaty treats. Whilst we may traditionally associate burgers and sausages with barbecuing, you can take it as far as you like - from healthy options such as chicken breasts and kebabs, to red meat central with steaks, ribs and lamb chops!

  3. Take the veggie route
    There are plenty of vegetarian options that are just as tasty on the BBQ so if you’re a vegetarian, there’s no need to miss out. From vegetable skewers and veggie burgers, to corn on the cob and sliced halloumi, there’s plenty of tasty options to try…

  4. Spanish flavour
    We stock CADAC paella pans in two sizes (28cm and 47cm) giving you the choice of size to suit your family. These pans are high quality and practical, enabling you to make a paella - or indeed any one-pot meal - with ease. Whether you use these pans to make a veggie paella, seafood feast or meat mix is up to you!

  5. Full English
    A full English is a great meal at any time of the day and the choice of ingredients is completely up to you and can be tailored to your preferences. From bacon and sausages, to fried eggs, mushrooms and tomatoes, you can cook it easily in one go if you opt for a Carri Chef 2 Chef Pan or a Grillo Chef 2 Chef Pan.

We stock a selection of CADAC BBQs and accessories in our online shop, but if you can’t see what you’re looking for, please give us a call on 01962 714 844 or pop into our onsite shop. We may also be able to order other items in for you - just ask, we’re happy to help!
