RS Barcelona Mon Oncle portable barbecues in black, blue and green colourwaysWe’re cooking outdoors today with the Mon Oncle portable barbecue.  Talk about being careful what you wish for – this time last week it was to chilly to sit outside without a blanket, now outdoors-living weather has suddenly arrived with a vengeance.

With temperatures this hot, you definitely don’t want to be slaving over a hot stove indoors, and making the most of this glorious summer weather means getting in as many barbecues as possible while it lasts.

And what could make outdoor cooking more colourful or stylish than the elegant, compact Mon Oncle portable barbecue designed by Spanish design studio RS Barcelona?

Last summer we wrote about the innovative and utterly beautiful Halo Cooltouch Barbecues, but gorgeous as they are they’re not exactly portable.  Or particularly small.  So if your outdoor space is limited but you don’t want to skimp on style, let me introduce you to Mon Oncle …

The Mon Oncle portable barbecue oozes style, character and quality with its real leather handles, fabric straps and retro colours.  It’s not a question of style over substance though.  On a practical note the Mon Oncle is easy and quick to dismantle and clean, and its compact size means storage is a doddle.

The hardwearing steel body is perforated with tiny holes that not only add to the look but allow air to flow freely, making the grill hotter and more powerful whilst ensuring that the case doesn’t overheat.
