One of the advantages of a Cobb barbecue is that it does not smoke like a normal BBQ; this is because the food is isolated from the charcoal so the fat does not drip on it. This is another reason why it is good for cooking in small places such as onboard a boat as you don’t get any smoke flooding the cabin.
It can also be used as a charcoal oven and even cook pizzas in just 15 minutes! Through all of this it continues to remain cool to the touch on the outside so it can be used safely on a picnic table or even a wooden deck and is much safer for children.
The Sunday Times Travel Section Good Gear Guide said "The ingenious design of Cobb's barbie means that while it's roasting on the inside, the outer shell stays cools enough to carry. So once you've finished your impromtu beach barbie, you don't have to wait hours to get the thing back to the car".
