Best portable gas grill

I have been researching portable gas grills and would be interested to hear of those of you who are experienced with any of them. I am leaning towards the Weber Q1200. Probably won't be cooking for more than 4 at a time and it seems very compact.

We have an O'Grill. Lightweight, good sized cooking surface and it grills great. My brother-in-law has the Weber. Its good to but bulkier.

Weber Q2200.

Larger, but handy when you have company.

Not to sure your question is possible to answer as I have not used all the grills currently being produced. I can tell you what I am currently using.
The Volcano Grill. Uses charcoal, propane and wood. Best all around grill that I have come across. It has become my go to grill for camping and at home. Excellant for Dutch oven use, grilling and smoking.

Costco has a great portable grill with legs that fold up making it the most compact I've seen. I like anything from Costco, their return policy can't be beat.

Best is subjective....For 9 years, I have used a 30 buck Uniflame brand from Walmart. It has worked great for me.

As CRH sated this is very subjective. I have had a couple over the years the latest have been the Cobb and the TEK Cherokee infared grill. I am not a big fan of the Cobb although others swear buy it. I do like the TEK. It can get extremely hot upwrds of 600 degrees and also relatively low at around 300. I have cooked from ribeye to eggs and bacon on it. I also have a Mirage Infared portable cooktop that I take camping. I used that for things like pasta, blanching vegetables, cooking oatmeal etc.

I also use the TEK at home to supplement my other grills (MAK 2 Star and Greenegg)
Good luck on your search.

We love our O-grill. Had it for 3 years and it's still going strong.

Check out the thread on portable grills in the "Stella's Kitchen" section. They have beaten the portable grill to death there.

We've had a Baby Q, now the Q1000, for 5 or 6 seasons. Didn't need the side shelves as the grill is usually set on a table at the campsite.
Cooks great and very reliable.
The grill, propane bottles, drip trays and accessories all fit in a Rubbermade container for transport and storage.

I use the grill with legs and got adaptors to use the propane access in the front. Since I hate cleaning, I use non stick foil with it. I bought two 10ft extensions to get it in place where I want it: away from the sun or wind direction.
