Small in Size, Big in Function: the new SAfire Roaster – Presented by BBQ-Scout

Things were not always better in the old days. Certainly not in camping cooking, which usually meant warming up tinned meals over a gas burner. Today we have the SAfire Roaster, a compact grill that can be used to boil, bake, fry and grill food almost anywhere.

The compact outdoor mini cooker weighs only 3.5 kilos, operates without an open fire and uses surprisingly little charcoal. As sole distributor in Germany, BBQ-Scout is presenting this new product for the first time in Germany at the spoga+gafa 2013.  The multifunction combi-grill has it’s origins in South Africa, where ‘Braai’, the African way of grilling, is a fixed part of social life. The original roaster was developed as a very safe, low-cost way of cooking for the underprivileged.

The small genius is the size and shape of a cooking pot. It requires no more than 350 grams of wood briquettes to maintain an even temperature of around 180 degrees for almost three hours. The heat is held in and reflected by a solid stainless steel lid.

The SAfire Roaster can be used to prepare various tasty meals – from chicken, roast meat, fish and fried eggs to pizza, bread and even vegetables. It does not emit unhealthy fumes since the fat does not drip onto the embers. Its special construction ensures that the charcoal burns very cleanly and produces only a minimum of carbon monoxide. The SAfire Roaster is also extremely easy to clean.

The SAfire Roaster and accessories are available directly from BBQ-Scout, through retailers and from specialist online shops.

Green Box BBQ by Landmann: The Eco-Friendly Disposable Grill

Barbecuing is not only in Germany a popular and delicious pastime in the summer. Nothing beats the smell of sizzling steaks, sausages, pork chops or veggie skewers on a warm evening at the lake, in a park or at the beach. In the last few years disposable barbecues became fashionable, mostly with young people who don’t want to bring the whole heavy grill equipment to the party. As practical as they are, the problems with them are that they create unnecessary waste and when used on grass they tend to sear the green underneath them.

The German company Landmann now developed the first Grill made solely from biodegradable materials. The Green Box BBQ can be disposed of easily and ecologically and spares the underlying ground. It consists of a firebowl filled with coals and a lid which doubles as a stand so that the heat doesn’t reach the ground. The only not compostable part of the BBQ is the metal grid. The Green Box is an eco-friendly convenience product that can be discarded with good conscience.

Landmann are exhibitors at spoga+gafa 2013 in Cologne from September 8th to 10th.

Hot Rod BBQ: Grill Steaks and Burgers in a V8 Engine

The Unique V8 BBQ combines motorized horse power with hot barbecuing. This new gas grill has the look and feel of a classic Mustang V8 motor. It is produced by the Dutch company Hotrodgrills, a subdivision of the Fireplace Management Group.

The impressive looking grill is made exclusively for the European market. Its lid and body are made from die cast aluminum, the tube burners and the grate from stainless steel. It is equipped with a professional-grade temperature gauge and an electronic igniter. Judging from the pictures, the smoke will come out of the exhaust pipes, when the lid is closed, which should add to the realistic vibe.

The Unique V8 BBQ is an extraordinary grill and will certainly appeal to enthusiasts of fast cars and sizzling steaks. At the spoga+gafa 2013 in Cologne you will have the chance to see it in action.
