Sport Grill MVP

Just bought the Sport Grill MVP. Looked at the Coleman Road Trip but was not impressed with the quality. However, the Sport Grill MVP offers the same versitility with a higher lever of construction. For example, the grill/griddle components are made of Cast Iron. And it seemed a lot more durable. Works with both small propane tanks or can be adapted for use with larger tanks. Definately worth a look!

A disposable 14.1-oz. propane cylinder (not included) lasts up to 1.5 hours.
Hey thanks - that's the answer I was looking for! I appreciate it!

Thanks Jack - Yup - the ring is still on there so if I want to use the fat one it would have to come off. I'm leaning towards an 11lb tank - I think it's a great idea. There is also a 5 lb tank that I might consider. Then when I have the big tanks filled I can have the little one done at the same time.

It's not a bad idea and a lot of people do that for their grills, but, it also limits the location for using the grill. I'd rather have the flexibility to be able to move it around freely.

That's the direction that I'm leaning in. I just don't know if I'm going to get a 5 lb or the 11 lb.

I also have the Coleman RoadTrip. Also purchased the flat 'griddle' for doing the pancakes, bacon etc, AND the stove top attachment for a coffee pot, soup pot etc. Comes with the regular grill tops suitable for steaks, dogs and the like. ALSO purchased the extra hose and adapter and a small 5lb propane tank. Have used a dozen times and still on the first tank. I don't like the small 1 lb tanks.

I use the stainless steel Napoleon portable grill. Excelent quality but a bit bulky for extensive travel vacations. Pricey at $325, but should last forever, mine has over 30,000 miles on it and I use the trailer tanks almost exclusively but can use the small tanks as well.

We stopped by Camping World yesterday and bought a refillable 5 lb tank. It seems like it will be the perfect size to haul around with the Baby-Q. Ir should last for while between refills and we won't be throwing any of the non-refillable canisters into the environment.

I bought one of these on clearence last fall. Paid just over $200. Stainless and heavy. She will last forever! No hitch attachment though.

Bob,Sandra,

Does the Holland get hot enough? The web site says that it only goes to 5800 BTU. I like to get a good char on the steaks and was afraid that would not get hot enough to do that. I like the look and design of the Holland.

I have been driving myself nuts trying to narrow it down. So far I have been looking at:

Char-Broil Grill-to-go

Weber Q220

Holland Grill

They are all in the same price category. The char broil comes with a stand so that is where I am leaning but it seems a bit big. I like that it says it is 14K BTU, but you never can tell if the manufacturer is using the same rating.

Does any one have any of these?

Nick

Nick,
The Holland has worked well for us. The newer models do have folding legs which would make it easier to store/carry. Carry bag is also available. Size was an important consideration, and it just fit's right in, stores in the coach under table.
One thing that is a bit different, you do have to get used to letting it do it's thing...I was in the habit of opening frequently to ck progress. Keep the burner clean and patience are in order. We love skewer meals, and the fact it doesn't flair up is terriffic. All & all it's been the best gas grill we've used.

May be better out there but we be Happy.

We Love the Cadac Safari Chef

You might want to consider the Safari Chef grill, it is light weight, high BTUs and compact for storage. We love the way it grills, and the versatility of the other cooking capabilities, have been great. It all stores inside itself and comes in a carrying bag (stores under the bed!)

(1) Will the Safari get hot so you can sear a steak?
(2) Can you get 4 T bone steaks on it?
(2) Can you hook it to a large propane tank with a adapter hose?
Their web site does not make it clear.
