We do basic stuff in the Cali but only fry bacon etc on the gas burner outside. When we were away over Easter I had the Music on, beer at hand, looking at the fantastic views. Couldn't get much better. Except that we are looking into getting some sort of bbq for when the weather is good. Have been looking at Cobbs, Lotus Grills and Cadaqs, think I need a separate post to discuss those...
The Cadac is an outstanding piece of compact kit, we used it all last year, I loved it. The non-stick griddle plate is an excellent extra but just make sure you level the table if cooking eggs.;)

I agree with how good the cadac is. We use it for loads of stuff. Warming pies while tinned veg is on the hobs. Jacket potatoes. And pancakes on the flat griddle plate.

Very true...

BTW... It's entirely possible to cook fresh pizza on a Cadac, equally in summer I've found the warm Cali makes a perfect proving oven for the dough :)

Spicy salami and asparagus is a favourite

I've also modified my small Cadac so that it screws straight into the top of the 907 Cylinder, making it even a little more convenient.

Which model of Cadac do you have?

We like the cadac that much we have two. We have the safari using hp gas. And a little one called go fishing (I think). We got the little one first for camping in a tent then upgraded but we do take both. and get out the best one for the job.

Apologies for the slow response, just spotted the alert! I don't know the name of the one we have got but the gas bottle is ~ 17cm high and has a circular windshield and a lid/wok thing plus the griddle. I love cooking on it.
