Once again the Magma BBQ saved my camping trip. Copied from the pages of The Samba, where user Rhinoculips shared his install, this is one fantastic addition to my arsenal of VW Westfalia camping gear!
Set-up and break-down of the grill take me less than 3 minutes. The simple, small 1lb propane cans are easy to pack away in either the Magma's padded storage bag, or just stashed around my bus. It is easy to light and gets wonderfully hot, wonderfully quick! You can choose where to put yours, there are many, many mounting options.
Not only is the Magma great for roasting/cooking meat, fish and veggies but in a pinch (my kitchen propane tank went empty after 2 weeks of heavy use) I have boiled water for coffee, made rice and reheated beans on the grill too! For versatility there are griddles, veggie/fish trays and all manner of add-ons and options. You can even plug it directly into the Westy's propane tank.
I really enjoy being able to grill right outside the door while frying, sautéing or otherwise working in the van's kitchen. Without need to build a charcoal or wood fire to BBQ, things are a lot easier (and lighter.) The grill would neatly pack away under the rear seat, if the PO hadn't put a giant bass tube down there!

Some truths are universal. For one, your phone will always run out of power when you most need it. For another, the charging cords that come packaged with your Apple device will fray, split, and rip faster than Usain Bolt in a game of tag.Instead, pick up a charging cord that anyone would have a tough […]
Some people say magic tricks are nerdy and best left to your 12-year-old asthmatic cousin. But others see value in perfecting the slight of hand and showmanship associated with a perfectly executed routine. We’re firmly in the latter camp. And now, we’re giving you the ability to put a few parlor tricks up your sleeve with the Penguin […]
Bluetooth speakers may be convenient to use, but many of them just aren’t that powerful. Sure, it may be fine if you’re seated in front of the speaker. But move across the room, and you may strain to hear what’s coming from those tiny drivers.There’s a reason why the G-BOOM Wireless Bluetooth Boombox (now $79.99 in the Boing […]
