You can’t survive very long on a trip on sandwiches and dehydrated meals, which is why the Gamate Voyager BBQ is going to be your new best friend on the road.
The generous cooking surface means that can char, cook and grill to your heart’s content on this thing, and it has a cast iron plate and half grill cooking surface - so you have a few different options. This is ideal to use in your caravan as it is LPG caravan bayonet suitable, and will fit into most caravan tunnel boots.
This powerful stainless steel burner also comes with a rotary ignition for easy lighting – which means you don’t have to fumble with matches. This unit is also easy to take along with you on all your off-the-grid expeditions as its lightweight and compact for easy transport and storage.
Whether you want to fire her up for some bacon and eggs for brekkie, or snags and chops for dinner – the portable Gasmate Voyager BBQ will allow you to cook up a storm on the road.
We bought this bbq assuming it came with the half grill plate & half cast iron plate. The new shipment now only has the grill although they still advertise the old version. Just an FYI for those wanting the plate & not just grill.
Thanks for posting this review Sarah. Firstly, I'm sorry that your new bbq has fallen short of what you were expecting. Gasmate have informed us that they had a mishap in their warehouse, packing two grills when they should have included a grill and a hot plate.
They've also assured us that they'll be making up for the blunder and sending out the missing hot plate to all customers who've purchased the new Voyager - which will be happening in January 2018.
I hope this helps and again, we're sorry if this has put a dampener on your new bbq purchase. Laine
This BBQ is a little ripper. It folds down for easy storage and fires up first go. Talking about the finish product? Yummo
Once assembled my partner was over the moon and loves his new bbq. Will be awesome on our camping trips
can you buy the solid half hotplate for this bbq as the one I have has 2 grills.
Unfortunately, we've just found out that Gasmate has included 2x grills instead of 1x grill and 1x hotplate in their recent shipment which is an error on their part.
We're keen to rectify this - would you mind emailing our Warranties Manager, Nick at firstname.lastname@example.org to tell him about your situation and he'll be able to provide you with a range of options going forward.
Just wondering if this comes with a drip tray or where the fat and oil will run to.
We, unfortunately, don't have a display model (or stock) currently for me to check this.
However, from memory, I'm almost sure that the Gasmate Voyager Portable BBQ has a drip tray at the base on the cover to catch what comes down through the grill. In saying this, it's still a fair effort, as it is with any open grill BBQ, to keep the casing clean.
can you buy an additional char plate to make the bbq a full char grill with no solid plate?
Great question! Unfortunately, there are no additional hot plate options currently available for the Gasmate Voyager Portable BBQ.
I've just spoken with our Gasmate distributor again, and they've confirmed that unfortunately, there are no char grill hot plate options currently available for the Gasmate Voyager Portable BBQ.
An option, however, might be that you can get a replacement hotplate which as the same as what comes in the box, but we only have our one display model, so can't physically confirm whether you could sit two separate char grill halves side by side.
Conpletely new to this and looking for one to take camping. Will this connect straight to a 9kg gas bottle or are there extras we would need to get or change the gas bottle we will be using?
The Gasmate Voyager Portable BBQ has a POL fitting so it will fit directly to a standard 9kg gas bottle. Happy camping!
Does this bbq come with a transport bag? Thank you
Unfortunately, it doesn't include a carry bag Shandelle.
You could try something like the canvas duffle bag from Oztrail, the large size would be the best choice but it is a little large. Any other options are going to get a little expensive for a carry bag sorry.
Hi, Do the legs fold under the bbq? Any chance you could tell me the height once there folded please?
I have just checked this out on our display model, and yes the legs of the Voyager Portable BBQ fold under, and the entire height of the BBQ with the legs folded is 28cm.
would just like to see the burner. this would be perfect for us but also need the burner for a kettle and fry pans
You can see what the burner in the Voyager Portable BBQ here, but it looks like you're not going to be able to put a kettle or fry pan on this BBQ as there wouldn't be anything to stand it on once you remove the grill.
How high is the dome and are these suitable for cooking a roast?
The height of the dome/hood is 14cm so since it has a temperature guage, if you have a small roast, it should work fine!
Bbq tools - stainless steel or silicon ?
There is no official recommendation for tools to be used with the Gasmate Voyager Portable BBQ, however, a good set of sturdy metal utensils should do the trick. Silicone doesn't tend to go so well with an open flame which you'll likely get through the grill.
Can you purchase pot /frying pan stands that will stand over the burner ( after taking the plates off )?
Hi Miles. Unfortunately due to its burner design there are no after market stands to place a boiling pot or frypans on. For this type of design you may need to look more at one of the popular two burner ranges of stoves?
Does the burner run the length of the BBQ?
Howdy Miles. Yes the burner on this unit is two sided and runs the full length of the BBQ.
Low pressure or high pressure LPG? Is the burner run the length of the BBQ? Can you get boiling pot stands that stand over the burner?
Howdy Miles. the burner on this particular BBQ runs the full length of the hotplate and grill as a single double sided burner. It is a low pressure BBQ with a POL fitting and a regulator included in the hose length that is suitable for any of the medium to large bottles with a POL fitting. Due to the design of the burner there isn't a stand available that can be used safely to place a kettle or boiling pot over once the hotplate and grill are removed. Cheers!
Does this bbq have a bake function with the lid down?
The Voyager Portable BBQ has a hooded lid and a temperature gauge so technically you could use it to roast or bake, though we probably wouldn't recommend using it to whip up a batch of muffins!
Hi just wondering how this model stacks up against the gasmate cruiser for build and performance as there hasn't been any reviews.
We’ve had the Cruiser BBQ for a while now, and in general we’ve had positive feedback from customers about how it performs. As for the Voyager, it’s very new to us so we don’t have as much experience with it, but from looking at the different features we can still break down the differences.
Size wise, they are pretty much on par, but the Voyager has an extra 4000 BTU so it’s more powerful than the Cruiser. The Voyager has a half plate half griddle set up so it’s better for grilling, while the Cruiser has a cooking plate and top rack which lets you cook food that needs less heat at the top at the same time as on the plate. The Voyager is also caravan bayonet suitable, so it’s perhaps a little more versatile in that sense.
The Voyager also requires to be assembled before you use it (instructions are inked on the product page) whilst the Cruiser doesn’t – so you might want to keep that in mind as well.
If you want a BBQ you can use straightaway – the Cruiser is the better option, but if you don’t mind assembling things and you want a more powerful model than the Voyager may be better suited to you.
