The weight is 65KG, or 90lbs.

I didn't think our MiniMax was that heavy so checked the spec's again, 63 lbs. or 28.5 KG. I can lift and move it on my own, or we both grab a side.

The grill space on the previous mini I recall being 10 inches - 13 seems better

I'll keep this in mind for later on for sure !!!

I stand corrected -- thanks! editing my old post (if I can) to avoid confusions.

Indy - good feedback! Now that I have baking/smoking out of the way for boondocking with the egg, I am looking at both the weber-Q and volcano for propane (and fire restricted area) cooking.

Propane grill with good controls

I have been following this thread and read many of the posts, however I have not seen any comments on how well u can control the temp and flame with the knobs.
Anyway I am looking to replace my old two burner Coleman camp stove with a more modern propane grill. I would like one that can really control the flame and heat to cook eggs, pancakes and bacon. I do have a Cobb that uses charcoal however it takes to long to heat for breakfast.

I like the Cobb but will probably use the new grill also at night.

Thanks

I used my babyq-1000 weber for bacon with a lodge cast iron griddle in it - cooked the bacon awesome

I did not try eggs yet - but will report back

My cast iron griddle has two sides - a flat side and a ridged side - I think you would need to be careful and not have it all too hot

As far as flame ups - the babyq does excellent in controlling these

Any tips from others on eggs on the babyq would be appreciated - but I played it safe and cooked my eggs on a Teflon skillet in the AS

I will be interested to see your comments. I have done a significant search and have found little regarding temp control

Here's an idea for cooking those eggs...



Uses butane canisters. Many different brands available. Inexpensive, compact, and great for eggs! We don't carry a camp stove any more - just our trusty mini CharBroil BBQ and the butane saute stove.

Yeah - I've been wondering about something like this or induction cooktop for outdoor use

As I shared- I just picked a grill and it has the control for eggs but as an electric option the induction is great but two things I found was that you need 1800 watts and cast iron. Funny thing is, while that wattage is what gives induction its claim to fast boil, low power with cast iron is critical if you don't want to scrape the food off the pan. I tried four different so-called induction cookware pans and they did not work! The disc base too small. Allclad works and cast iron. Considering grills weight and size is important. I keep leaving mine at home. Out of room.

I carried one of the single burners for years. FYI, you can get them very inexpensively at Asian markets ($30). Many Asians use them for their woks. The one I purchased has a beefy carrying case (but a bit larger than some other brands)

They also sell the butane canisters at the Asian markets in multi-packs.

I also have an induction one burner and it works great owever I am looking for something that does not use elecric but can multitask ie cook ribs, pork butts, steaks at night and eggs bacon and pancakes in the morning.

I have seen some portable grills that are infrared but I have never used one. does anyone have experience with them and if so how do you like them?

Thumbs up Grills

I have a Cobb charcoal grill. They are stainless steel and have a look that matches our Sport. They aren"t very big but great for two people and only use seven or eight pieces of charcoal to operate. Works as a grill or oven. Cobbgrillamerica.com
