Outdoor grill recommendations

CP here. I want to purchase an outside grill that offers a lot of options but is still portable. Any suggestions?

If you want to go small, and don't mind charcoal only, you can't beat a Cobb Grill. Usable just about anywhere outdoors, because the outside surface never gets hot enough to burn. I've even seen them used while they were sitting on a plastic tablecloth.

With warmer weather coming up, and more chances to do some grilling, I plan to buy myself a Cobb Grill.

The small black Weber, either charcoal or gas. One style is round and the other a rectangle shape. The rectangle one is easier to store for travel and takes up less room.

We use this one but only paid $80 for it. 3 years old and still works great! We also got a carrying case for it at the Coleman outlet.

We use a Weber Q200. I have found that we really don't need one that big and the Q100 would have been a better fit for us as well as easier to store.

This is my AS only grill. It stays in the trailer in the storage bag and comes out once a year for a thorough cleaning (in the dishwasher, disassembled...but don't tell my wife). I have had it for at least 10 or 12 years and it has served me well.

I also have this one at home, now that there are just 2 of us at home. I like it a lot, but too big for regular AS travel. I will throw it in the truck if we are going to a "reunion" or gathering AS trip where we will cook for a lot of folks, but that's maybe once a year.

Depends a little bit on how many you're cooking for. In my case, it's almost always 2 or 3, and the smaller Weber Q100 works fine, takes up little space, stores easily. But few "options" whatever that means. The Coleman is larger and I've seen them used to cook for 5-6 people ... but it IS larger, and if you were to include e.g. the folding "table" gizmo, they get larger yet.

I cook on a campground table or my truck's tailgate, so avoid hauling one more thing. YMMV.

I have both the Weber Q100 and Q200. The 100 is perfect for my wife and I. When camping with a group I'll bring along the 200 for group dinner.

Easy solution

I use a small Hibachi style charcoal grill, although it's a little on the heavy side.

An even easier solution is a campfire tripod. Make up your campfire for a cozy evening, for cooking place this guy above the flame. A chain allows you to raise and lower the cooking grate. Place tinfoil on the grate and puncture holes for even easier cleanup. Then when you're done, simply remove the tripod, and it's back to cozy campfire for the night.

Cheers,

Airstream Dad

I wish I'd seen the Camco when I was shopping for a portable gas grill last year. That's exactly the type of unit I wanted to replace an old (long-lasting) Charbroil gas grill.

I ended up buying... Portable Stainless Steel Gas Grill with Cover - Sam's Club

It's a robust design with two burners. I've grown to like the two burner system because it allows me to use indirect heat when necessary. My only complaint... this thing is relatively large - about 1-1/2 times the Camco unit.

We use the rectangular small Weber...we have both the charcoal one and the propane (canister) versions. I like them for their ease of storage/packing and portability while traveling...and they are very simple grills. They are large enough to grill for 2 - 6 people depending on what you're grilling.
