A 'SMART' question....

It would be a 'STUPID' question if I didn't ask it. I am looking for a gas grill small enough for the road and big enough for the patio at home. I need a grill for both and if possible would wish to buy just one. Small enough as my traveling storage is much limited....24' Trade Wind and and a convertible tow vehicle. At home I bbq for just for Lynn and I and sometimes for a couple of guests. We do have a large charcoal grill for large gatherings at home. I did a search here and the Webber Q mini looks good. Any imput from you good grillers?


Thanks,
Neil

I have an Olympic propane grill which has been fine for 2 - 4 people.

Excuse me, It's Olympian. I've had mine about 10 years and have been very happy with it.

Hi, Neil. Check Lowes; They have a nice, all stainless steel, unit for about $80.00. I have one at home and works great for us. We gave our large Barbeque away, many years ago, and haven't missed it a bit.

I just bought a Weber Q-something, and it is a very well-made unit with a cast iron grill and all the other things you would expect from weber. However, it is big for a camper grill but would do fine for a combo (camp and home) if you can find a place to carry it.

I'm too trifling to send things back, but I wouldn't have bought it if I had done my homework.

I'll make it work (and you live too far away to trade for something).

Well, Pat, I thought you lived closer. But we have an ever increasingly popular Rally
http://www.airforums.com/forums/f288...1-a-71179.html coming up. Come with your grill and I'll save you carrying it back.
Thanks, Neil

Well, thanks for all your imputs. I went with 'ROBERTSUNRUS', Bob to me, suggestion and went to Lowes. Their grill is the Master Forge. Made in China...where else! My second choice was the Webber Q. A nice grill but too awkward of a shape to pack into our limited storage. I have grilled two dinners with it and it seems to be a great grill. It's stainless steel, light and carries like a suitcase. It's SILVER too! I read some reviews and most were favorable. The only review downside is, so far, limited parts availability. But it's NEW. Why woud I need parts?
Neil.

Neil, we bought one of those same suitcase SS grilles at Lowes a couple of years ago - paid $20 more than they are now!

It's been doing a good job through at least 25 meals - I've even left the grill off, flopped a fry pan on er' and cooked up the mornin' bacon...

Neil,
Why would you need parts? 'Cuz tomorrow it's not new.

Our Olympian is fifteen years old and parts are still available. We tried to restore a couple of cheap grills without success. Couldn't obtain parts and attempt to fabricate a ss heat plate was marginally successful.

Found this Olympian with fifteen feet hose and condition very good at RV rummage sale two years ago, it was already thirteen years ago. Best BBQ we've ever used.

regards, Jim http://dreamstreamr.com
