Bought a Cobb last Winter. Uses very little charcoal and is very well made. It is very versatile. You can cook, fry, smoke, bake, ect.

I do like the Cobbs. However, my gut feel tells me they won't be the ideal solution for grilling burgers in windy locations.

Check out this Arctic stainless tabletop charcoal grill....it looks pretty interesting, and almost matches an Airstream:
Arctic Super Deluxe Stainless Steel Charcoal Table Top Grill

not cheap.

Wind doesn't seem to be a problem, but it doesn't heat up well in really cold weather. Like with snow on the ground. Just takes a little longer is all.

We like the Weber Smokey Joe... We just like the taste that charcoal gives. The Smokey Joe looks just like a miniature Weber charcoal grill... round with a durable enamel finish. By the way, last time we looked they were available here locally in California. We haven't run into any charcoal restrictions while camping.... yet!

Weber Q 100. Great to cook on and easy to clean.

In the last thread we had on this, the Weber Q was the favorite.

I have a Coleman "Fold N Go" which I use with a T and hose on the 40# tanks, using either a campground table, truck tailgate, or folding table for support depending on circumstances. It works well and cooks evenly despite having a stamped sheet metal grill rather than a wire rack. The main problem is that the grill area is barely large enough when cooking for six people. Advantages are that it stows easily in an exterior compartment and is inexpensive.

Ah So,

Travelin' light... Lovin' it

Tiny "Vintage" Hibachi from the Japan Sword Company.

Cooks three brats, three kabobs, or a hand sized tuna steak.

Uses six briquettes, fires up fast, easy to clean, and it all fits in my potato chip can, including a little bag of cowboy charcoal.

We have a small propaine type stainless steel BBQ that has latches to keep it closed when traveling. Not too big but we were able to cook for 4 without too much trouble.

Now that's the way to go! I could go for a slab of salt and pepper corn crusted rare tuna.

We use a Weber Q200. Not as compact but it works well for us.

We have a weber Q200. Just got a medium sized George Foreman grill for the inside of the AS. Tried it the other day, cooked 3 bubba burgers in no time. I had one years ago and forgot how convenient they are.

Volcano Cooker - found it on sale at BJ's wholesale last November. Uses either propane or charcoal and legs fold into the bottom. Great for dutch oven cooking or grilling. Mine has a smoker hood I haven't tried yet.
