Hibachi

As much as we like the Platinum Smokey Joe (especially for cooking pizza), our favorite portable, camping-grill now is a round hibachi that we’ve had for years.

It fits nicely in a plastic round bucket with lid, along with a bag of charcoal. It takes up less space in the truck cargo area. The food cooks closer to the coals. It is more efficient and uses less charcoal than the Smokey Joe.

Solaire Grill

I was given a Solaire grill last summer and it is superb. It is compact and very portable but it has amazing heat output. For outdoor cooking I also use a Coleman white gas 2 burner. I like to cook outside.




Here's the Coleman stove setup

A white gas coleman stove. I haven't used one of those in years! I cooked on one of those full time for years. We used to call it the "bomb". Every once in a while it would flame on and nobody would want to go near it to put it out We now use a coleman propane stove. Much safer and you don't have to pump it up!

I have one of the older Coleman Road Trip grills, the one with the legs that fold up underneath the grill. The grill is what you would expect from at $150 grill. It gets the job done and has lasted for5 years now. I did quit using the little green bottles though and got a larger tank and hose. Didnt like contantly throwing away all those bottles and/or having them run empty all the time. I usually only got about 4 meals cooked with one bottle. Much happier with my 5 gallon tank.


*edit*

Ack, just realized what a dinosaur this thread is that someone dug up.

I'll second this choice. Been using this for the last 4 years, cooks great,

looks great............It's silver!!!!!!

We had a home model and it was the best gas grill I have ever had or seen. It is absolutely impossible to burn anything. All my friends allways wanted to come to our house because evrything that came off the Holland was awesome to taste. I had it hooked up to the house's nat. gas and when we sold the house the new owners wanted the grill, they put it in the contract. We have a weber smokey joe but I might just have to buy that Holland portable model(didn't know they had one). Thanks.

Jim Clark recommended a Magna stainless steel portable grill and I love it. It was pricey, but it is made for the yachting industry and seems extremely well built. Should last the rest of my life time!

We have the Weber Baby Q and I love the convenience of gas with the 1# propane bottles that we stow in the Classics empty battery box. I am thinking of gettting a griddle for it for pancakes and sausage or bacon. With any of the grills, lining them with heavy duty or doubled aluminum foil makes clean-up a breeze. For charcoal flavor the Weber Go Anywhere charcoal grill has always been large enough for the two of us and can make a couple of great cornish hens.

Saw this shirt in the window of a shop.

I like my Weber BabyQ, I have tried several grills and this one works great for us. And yes, Dutch Oven cooking is a great way to go, we have been doing it for a year and really kike it.

We use a George forman grill and they are well worth the money and you get to stare at all the fat that drains out lol! we have since stopped eating red meat after looking at the lard contents (don,t gross out) but it's true, the white stuff is the stuff that sticks inside your arteries and the doctor has to use a tiny airstream shaped thing to scrape it out if needed. We also have a stainless cylinder like grill that closes like a roll-top desk, it was given to us by a trucker and it runs on the small propane jars...for heat instead of the central unit, we use a 'Mr. Heater unti with a twenty foot hose that really keeps everybody warm...it's not funny but one time somebody turned the oven on for heat and the pilot went out at the same time...aside from everybody being dizzy, I don't know how we survived that one, I promise it will never happen again!

Here's the Coleman stove setup


I have been recently experiencing a problem with my Solaire grill. I have been having trouble keeping it lit on the low setting. Wind has not been a factor the stove just keeps going out as if it's starved for fuel. I contacted the factory and the said they are shipping a new regulator. I will post an update as soon as possible. The stove is essentially unusable except on the highest setting. I am a little bit dissapointed at this time.

Thumbs up Weber Q-100 ("Baby-Q")

Well, I have to add my $.02, and nominate the Weber Q-100 as the best all-around portable gas grill. Up until now, we had lots of good results with the "Patio Classic", a self-starting "chimney effect" charcoal grill. It's still a good back-up, but pretty small cooking area. We opted to try a gas grill.
After doing some internet research, and noticing that about 95% of the web reviews were in the 5-star range, we bought the Weber Q-100. It arrived yesterday, and took no more than 10 minutes to unpack, assemble handle/cotter pins, and attach 16.4 oz propane cartridge (the wire support that made it difficult to use the larger propane cartridges wasn't present, I guess in response to the universal complaints about it getting in the way).
The grill is porcelain-coated cast-iron, so no seasoning necessary! But I did season some chicken thighs, threw them on the pre-heated grill, and 10 min later, they were superb. The grill leaves markings of a professional grilling setup! The Q100 is definitely a keeper; of course if you have specialized BBQ needs, like beercan chicken, you'll need a larger grill, but this is a great choice for the rest of us!
