"Excellent product with excellent build quality. Highly recommended."
Gareth Jones - Milford Haven, 23rd August '12
"We often use the SOH on the beach because it lights so well in the wind. The compact size when packed but large grill area means that we can feed plenty of hungry kitesurfers and even boil a kettle for brewing tea on a single charge of charcoal.
Once everyone is full we just close it up and fight for position to sit round it and get warm.
As for the Snuffout Bag, we tested this to the max last weekend when due to the lack of wind we decided to take out an inflatable canoe for a 6 hour paddle around Poole Harbour with plans to stop on one of the islands for a BBQ and a brew.
This idea got us a few sideways looks and humorous words of warning about the combination of a BBQ and an inflatable boat.
The ignorant fools, they had no idea that because of the snuffout bag we could kill the coals, give it 30-60 mins then load the SOH back into the canoe with no risk of it melting through the bottom and giving us a rather embarrassing problem.
I am happy to say that the mission was a great success and we have since taken the SOH onboard powerboats, catermarans and even a windsurfer. I don't think it was designed for water travel but it was definitely designed with having fun in mind.
Best BBQ ever made!"

"Excellent product - heats up quickly, cooks well, lasts long enough for a meal for 8, saves charcoal and goes away as they said it would.
Best barbie we've bought."
Peter Welford - Chobham, Surrey, 21st August '11
"This BBQ is exactly what I was hoping for - starts amazingly quickly and heats up within minutes. Highly recommended."
Ron Hatcher - Faversham, 8th August '11
"Absolutely brilliant - it did everything it was supposed to do - easy to light, lasted as long as was neccessary, easy to clean and the "Snuff bag" worked very effectively. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a portable barbecue."
Tony Bourne - Shropshire, 31st August '09
"Used this on Saturday and works brilliantly. Cooked through 8 burgers, 12 sausages, 6 Chicken Breasts and 10 Kebabs in only 1.5 hours, you can fit lots more than you think on the grills.
Was easy to set up, kept hot for 2 hours and when finished just closed the BBQ and put it in it's bag for it to burn out overnight. Then easy to clean in the morning.
The best portable BBQ available."
Chris - Bury St Edmunds, 1st June '09
"Bought this from Drinkstuff and does exactly what the description says...Easy to start, easy to cook on, easy to clean and put away. A lot of my friends have seen this and are going to buy one themselves."
Martin Glover - Midlands, 21st April '09
"Absolutely brilliant barbeque. Great for days out, easy to get going, loads of room on the grills and quick to pack away too."

"Grilletto - Son of Hibachi Barbeque - what a cool bit of kit! Definitely portable, very simple to set up, and it's a lot easier than wheeling the big one out of the garage or shed, or messing with gas bottles. Does everything they say in the write-up, hot in less than 10 mins, self cleans, and cooks really well also. Enough space for 4 people's food or more if you eat in shifts. You will NEED heat resistant gloves to get the best out of this barbie."

"took this on a long haul flight to use on holiday. Liked the bag it came in and it certainly worked to put it in when hot. Husband says it took longer to light then it claims at least with briquets but it is solidly made and should do us a while."

"Found this to be an ideal BBQ for taking on a day out. Quick and easy to use with the coals being ready for use soon after lighting. Packed it with lumpwood coals the night before therefore no messing around on the day. Snuff out pouch is great and allowed us to pack it away while the BBQ was still hot. Compact yet ample cooking surface to cater for family and friends on a day out. Got plenty of comments about it being a 'real BBQ' and not disposable. Overall a great item and worth every penny, would highly recommend.
