This new gas-fired portable BBQ from Primus is a perfect cooking companion for campers and picnic fiends, and a handy table-top griller for balcony use, too. The compact Kuchoma is exceedingly well built and runs off both camping gas canisters or full-blown Patio Gas cylinders (with optional adaptor). It also comes with an integral hinged lid – with carry handle – for either direct or indirect cooking; a very good thing indeed.
The Kuchoma’s non-stick 40cm x 24cm grate will comfortably accommodate about 20 sausages or a dozen chicken legs – enough cooking estate for a cult of campers – and, at 4.5kgs, it’s light enough to carry a fair old distance without your arm falling off. Granted, it’s not the easiest thing to clean while out in the bush, but then nobody ever cleans a barbecue after every meal – just fire it up and let the remnants burn off before slapping on the next mini banquet.
