ProQ Launches A Flatdog Portable BBQ Grill, And A Multi-tool

ProQ Barbecues & Smokers has launched TWO new products: the Flatdog portable BBQ grill, + the Multi-tool. Both are set to game-change the outdoor cooking world.

The ProQ Flatdog is a portable charcoal grill that folds down as thin as a laptop, easily converting to a high-spec barbecue, with ample grilling space for up to 12 people. Transforming from flat to functional in one easy step, the Flatdog’s space-saving design was created to make carrying a barbecue effortless, through a highly efficient set-up.

Built to last, and an essential companion for outdoor adventures, this is a first for the portable outdoor cooking arena.

The Flatdog boasts the largest cooking surface of any fold flat portable barbecue, with the efficient airflow design of a premium cooking experience. Also, ProQ’s new Multi-tool combines four vital tools in a single piece of kit, which incorporates BBQ tongs, a spatula, a grill fork, and a bottle opener.

Our whole family shares a love of cooking, so when we go out, this means carting along some form of BBQ, plus an assortment of BBQ tools. There’s usually around 8 of us, and in the past, finding a BBQ that was functional, that wasn’t bulky and heavy – proved to be quite a challenge. Our latest additions, the Flatdog and Multi-Tool are the perfect solutions,“ said Ian McKend, the Founder of ProQ. 

Easy to carry to the beach or on a camping trip, the Flatdog has been created to flatpack for the back of a car, a caravan, or a camper-van. An environmentally-conscious and safe alternative to single-use BBQs, the Flatdog has been created as a positive move against destructive, ‘disposable’ barbecues.

“It’s hard not to notice when out and about, that quite a few families use disposable barbecues to cook on, usually followed by plumes of smoke that have a distinct chemical smell. It’s pleasing to see that some supermarkets are now de-listing this type of BBQ, due to concerns over their environmental impact,” said Ian.
