Eco Friendly Portable Barbecues

Eco Friendly Portable Barbecues

Merlin Farm Holiday Cottages offer luxury and Eco Friendly accommodation a short walk from Mawgan Porth Beach on the stunning North Cornwall Coast. The perfect base to spend your Holiday in Cornwall; Enjoy picturesque coastal & countryside walks, cycle trails along estuaries and through historic mining landscapes. Taste organic Cornish wine at a nearby Vineyard, sample freshly caught fish at a local restaurant and enjoy picnics & barbeques on the beach. We have been searching the internet to find 'eco' barbecues, here is what we have found...

EcoQue Grill
This amazingly portable grill features the reflective pyromid design that focuses heat efficiently. EcoQue Grills consume up to 75% less fuel than similar sized grills by reflecting more heat up toward the cooking surface for optimal performance. You can cook a meal for four with as few as nine briquettes, or cook with twigs, wood chunks, and other found fuel.
By changing the orientation, height and amount of fuel, you can fine-tune the heat for anything from a fast grill for steaks to a more gentle roast for veggies and fish. In fact with an EcoQue you can BBQ, bake, fry, roast, boil and even smoke your foods!
Made of durable stainless steel, with a cooking surface is 1300cm sq.  It folds into a carry bag (made from recycled materials) just over 4cm thick and fits in picnic baskets.
Optional foil liners are available to enhance performance and make clean-up faster. £109.99 for a 12" and £129.99 for a 15" Barbeque inc. delivery.

The German LotusGrill is considered more eco-friendly than other charcoal grills, because you use very little charcoal. Thanks to the fan assisted charcoal burning it comes up to temperature quickly and allows you to start cooking your mouthwatering food in under 5 minutes. One fill of the charcoal basket gives you about 45-50 mins of cooking time and the great thing is that the parts of a LotusGrill BBQ that get dirty are made from stainless steel and can all be washed in the dishwasher. A 32cm diameter grill costs £144 inc delivery or £189 for a 40.5 cm diameter

EcoGrill is the Eco cool way to BBQ. 100% environmentally friendly, easy to light and fun to use. Due to its design it maximises the use of the charcoals within it and prolongs burning time giving over 2.5 hours grilling while the heat remains even, and up to 5 hours as a heat source.Perfect for toasting marshmallows after dinner and keeping warm whilst waiting to watch the sunset. When it's finished all that remains are ashes and memories. The Eco Grill is light and compact (20-25cm diameter) and is easily lit with its own natural and odour free resin wick which quickly lights the coals (no need for lighter fluid) and is ready to use within 20 minutes of lighting. An EcoGrill costs £10, although if you buy in bulk (5+) cost £8 each. Optional extra's: reusable grill stand £5 & cooking pan £10
