Portable Gas BBQ Stove

This is perhaps one of my best investment so far from my trips to Bangkok… I was actually looking for an electric powered bbq grill which are a widely and commonly use appliance in Thailand. From shops to food court, you will see them using this to grill meat or sausages and in hypermarket there, price starts at closed to Baht 700-800 onwards, that’s a lot more cheaper than what is offered here in KL.

Me and Joe was looking for one in Robinson store and suddenly Joe saw this portable unit that uses small gas canister, this means you can go anywhere and just start a mini bbq! No electricity needed, just simple mechanic like a portable stove. I was reluctant at first cause I had set my mind of the electric unit but after must persuasion and deviling from Joe, I finally go for this.

This unit cost about Baht 1,000 (House Worth brand) and I had the first go at it during the new year eve and it was a satisfactory experience for me! I bought the better gas canister, Pensonic brand and I have been using for like 4 hours and there’s still balance in the can, not bad.

We use it to grill all sort of stuff, from sausages (nickname Jari by Andrew) to kimchi, pork, etc. It was just great. There’s a bottom try to put water to reduce the chances of burning your food and easier for washing, just gotta remember to fill up the water as it runs dry quite fast! Your food doesn’t really get burn by the fire as the fire is used to heat up a metal cover which cooks the food. The manufacturer call this the infrared heat, hehehe.. technically the metal covers turns red when heat up.

After bbq washing was ok but lesson learnt is that its suitable to bbq and grill dry stuff but things with a lot of sauce will make it difficult to wash. So conclusion is I will stick to my Tefal hotplate for meat with sauce and use this for less wet meat or food and one thing though, grill kimchi can be very nice ;).

    Hi Nizam, yeah you should it is really worth the investment but I got it @ Robinson store at Bangkok! But if you have friends going, ask them to go to Robinson @ Ratchada in Bangkok. Its about RM100 if I remembered correctly. Pity I don’t see anyone selling it here in MY 🙁
