Which camping braai suits me?

Camping means cooking outside! But how do you choose the most suitable braai for you?

Those who think about camping, thinks about cooking outside and eating outdoor too. While it is sometimes a challenge at home to put a meal on the table with our busy schedules, it’s completely different on holidays. Cooking seems to be much more fun. You can take your time, grab a beer or wine, while in the meantime you chat with the neighbour. Luckily, the options for outdoor cooking are, now a days, much more extensive than in the past. There are braais of all shapes and sizes that you can easily take with you on your vacation.


The first choice to make is the one between charcoal, gas or electric. Charcoal braais and camping are not an ideal combination. It is not easy to take a charcoal braai with you in your car or camper, but it is also forbidden to braai on charcoal at many campsites in Europe. A gas or electric braai often offers a solution. It should be noted that an electric braai quickly consumes 2400 watts of electricity, which is way too much for most campsites. In addition, it must always be in the vicinity of an electrical outlet. Gas braais are therefore the most suitable braais to take with you on vacation.
CADAC offers portable braais for every family size and for every type of camper.


Are you going to camp for the first time? Should the braai be practical, not cost too much and last for years? Then the original Skottelbraai is right for you, or its newer brother; the Paella Braai. These tripods weigh little and are easy to carry thanks to the removable base. It comes with a Skottel or a paella pan, the diameter of which is large enough to prepare anything from potatoes with meat, stir-fries, pancakes or a delicious risotto. That way you can combine simplicity with the convenience of preparing a varied meal.


Do you mainly cook for two or three people? Or do you have limited space in your car or camper? Then the Safari Chef is a perfect match! With its foldable legs and light weight (less than 4 kg!) you can easily take it with you. The compact size does not hinder its possibilities. This small all-rounder comes standard with a BBQ grid, a flat griddle, a pot stand and a lid, which also serves as a pan when you turn it over.


If you go camping with your family, you usually cook for around 4-6 people. Preferably the braai does not take up too much space when you go by car. Still you want to prepare a complete meal for your family. The Grillo Chef is a handy device with a removable base. You can bake, grill, cook and stew on it and you can easily store it in the included carry bag.


Are you going to camp with your family, friends or relatives and do you want more luxury? Then choose the Carri Chef. This gas braai has screw on legs and a “spice tray” for extra strength. With a diameter of 48 cm, the Carri Chef is not only the largest model in the CADAC camping range, but also the model with the most possibilities! There are 8 different cooking surfaces available, so that you can prepare every imaginable dish on this all-in-one braai.


Do you want to steal the show at the campsite? Want to make your new camping neighbours jealous with a trendy, but versatile braai? Then go and buy the latest addition to the CADAC family: the Citi Chef 40. This table braai is available in 3 modern colours and is unexpectedly versatile!
