Say goodbye to space constraint issues! With Napoleon’s TravelQ PRO285 and TQ285X, you can have a great BBQ sesh even in the tiniest of balconies.
First up, let’s take a look at the Napoleon TravelQ TQ285X.
Blue. The TQ285X comes in an eye-catching metallic blue (lid), with black side tables and grey legs.
Gas. There are 2 types of gas canisters that can be used with the TQ285X – 250ml Steamboat cartridge & 12.7kg LPG gas tank. However, the TQ285X will come with only 1 regulator per unit, so you’ll have to decide which gas type is more suitable for you.
Grills. Typical of Napoleon grills, the TravelQ TQ285X comes with a wave design for their cast iron cooking surface. The cast iron also feels solid and the whole cooking surface area is actually made up of 2 separate grills. It’s a decent-sized cooking area, enough to grill 10 – 12 burger patties.
Burners. I was actually surprised to find that the TQ285X had 2 stainless steel burners for such a small BBQ. But it’s perfect for distributing heat more evenly across the cooking area, and also, has a higher heat power than the usual 1 burners in the market with 12,000 BTUs.
Foldable. Fold down the TQ285X for easy storage. It stands on it’s own so you don’t have to lean it against the wall.
Covers. Covers are optional for the TQ285X. They come in the full cover ($70) and the partial cover ($50).
The Napoleon TravelQ TQ285x is available from libertypatio.com from $670.
Next, let’s take a look at the Napoleon TravelQ PRO285.
Compact. The PRO285 has removable side tables. You can also take it off the stand and use it as a table top BBQ.
Simplicity. I was really surprised by how easy it was to attach and take off the firebox from the stand. 4 clips hold the BBQ down.
Solid. The main cooking area is really solid. From the die-cast aluminium fire box to the thick cast iron grills, this is a well made bbq.
Other features. It’s not possible to stick the gas tank on the base of the cart, but there is a little slot at the back for you to place it on the ground under the BBQ. There is also a bottle opener on the front.
Covers. Covers are optional for the Pro285. They come in the partial cover ($50).
The Napoleon TravelQ Pro285 is available from libertypatio.com from $850.
