great compact bbq "now"
I love this little bbq it is very compact for travelling in camper. Was not hot enough initially so I fixed that up easily with my jet drills . Found a slight increase in size made a difference from max heat setting and boiling my steak, now set to medium setting and cooks with plenty in reserve . Sure I voided my warranty but I have had my Gasmate Adventurer for about 10 years now with no problems at all. Trying to buy another for my daughter for xmas but cant get one in Tassie. Annaconda put them in their catalogue but dont ship them down here. Very annoying.
Best Portable BBQ Period
This BBQ is by far one of the better ones out there if you know how to use it properly. My first recommendation is to remove the flame diffuser that sits over the top of the flame and you will automatically see a great difference in heat output.
If it is still not hot enough do as i did and raise the burner closer to the hotplate by putting a few washers under burner. I know most of you think why go through all that, but i love the portability, size of hotplate and the fact that you can use both LPG and disposable canisters. With the mods ive done it gets nice and hot and you can easily burn your food if your not careful. I have tried many portable BBQs and like i said at the start its by far the best if you do a couple of mods.
A great portable BBQ!
Can be used with the disposable Propane (not Butane) canisters. We purchased these canisters from our local Bunnings from the tradies section (were advised this would give a hotter heat). Screws directly into the bottom of the regulator (skip the hose). We did have to leave the setting on high, but it did cook our meats, eggs etc to perfection. Also love the fact that it has a good size, reversible hot plate & is a compact fold up design. We wanted a small, portable bbq that we could use disposable canisters with & not have to carry a larger gas bottle around with us & are happy with what we've purchased.
Disappointed. Save your money!
Bought this BBQ for camping on the belief the brand name to be reputable. This BBQ will not get hot enough to cook food in a reasonable time frame even in a wind free enclosure. Pity really as it has a good size reversible hot plate and compact fold up design. Just lack of decent heat to cook on is frustrating.
Cheaply made and does not get hot enough to cook eggs.
At 1st glance the product looked good, small and compact and easy to travel with but on fire up it became a joke, i put it on high and tried to cook two eggs, it took 1/2 an hour till they where ready to turn and they where not even a little bit burnt, this product is not a BBQ it is a food wormer at best, I want a refund !
The pictures on the box and on line store show blackened and well cooked chops and chicken, this product is not possible of this !
Save your money. Spend it elsewhere
Great looking and portable. Piezo igniter is mounted too far from burner to spark it needs to be moved closer. Great cooking area although very slow even in sheltered conditions no quicker than our $20 propane canister stove. The levelling feet/lid lock very flimsy. Even though there is a huge cooking surface instructions say to cook smaller portions if it keeps losing heat.... Alarm bells should have gone off but was too excited about the new toy. The gas regulator/heat adjustment is very awkward being a separate piece to the stove it looks mo...re like they forgot to put the knob on the stove and came up with a quick and dirty patch up ..... Even the $20 stove we use has this as part of the stove. Not impressed at all for the money it looks good but that's it. Portable, excellent fat drainage, Poor heat. Cheaply made some things look like after thoughts
My cousin has one of these and uses it constantly to cook barbecues for 2 - 3 people. No gas bottle to worry about as It uses propane cylinders which are very inexpensive. It is sturdy, easy to clean and takes up practically no storage space. It is ideal to take for camping
Uses very little fuel, storage efficient

Why is there a gap near the regulator on the side of bbq.?
