Portable Grills

I just bought the BBQ Grilware from Lowe's for $88.00. It is a neat little grill, however Lowe's has a bad shipment with bad regulators, so if you get one call the 800 # and they will check it by serial # and send you a new regulator by UPS.

I just got back from a weeks vacation. Took my new Weber Baby-Q with me. Needless to say I was quite impressed. Cooked everything from filets to Italian sausage. No flare ups no issues. It cooks extremely fast. We picked ours up at Linens & Things here in St. Louis. All their grills were 25% off. My Q was the last one in stock at the store and was in an open carton. They discounted it another 20%. My bottom line price was $77.

Frontgate

After reading the posts here I ordered two of the Frontgate portable stainless steel grills for our trailer and my mother's motorhome.

They were in fine condition but warn against cooking with the lid closed. So forget it. Why does a grill have a heavy and obvious lid like that if it can't be closed? I sent them back right away. I'm going with the little $50 Weber that gets such good reviews. Simpler and smaller than the Q, I think.

On of the nice things about the Baby-Q and its big brother Q is the fact that you don't need lava rock. I keep the grill in the van and nothing was worse than the rattle of the rocks in my old grill and the need to rearange them after a drive.

I have that grill, and the reason is that it gets amazingly hot. I cooked on low and it did a quick job of it on salmon, burgers, and sausages.
Quite a burner. Nothing wrong with it for our usage. Got lots of complimets on the looks also. Kind of matches the airstream.

By the way I used the slat portion upside down...if you have this grill it is meant to go with the little v sections up.

Just bought the Weber Q. Love it. We will but a "T" in our propane line to use the Trailer Propane. Weber has done a great job making a product that is portable. The Q fits in a duffel that has wheels on the bottom. The folding stand puts the Q at "regular" height.

Pork, have you cooked whole chicken yet? I am not sure what Weber is talking about when the cookbook says to use a roasting rack?

Thanks ,

Abe

NordicWare has a great BBQ grill that nicely fits the RV. We purchased ours second hand but Nordic Ware website still should show it.

Just can't beat our little Coleman suitcase style propane stove. It doesn't grill, but talk about quick and easy for camp cooking! I think we've definitely reached the less is more state of mind!

Try one of the small Webber grills from Camping World, Lowe's or Home Depot.
They come in two sizes. They have a portable stand, and use the disposable bottles.
They do well and are the next best thing to a large grill.

Lee,
I own several, but the one that I always take on the road is this one:

http://tinyurl.com/drzs9

It lists for approx. $300, but I got it at Heartland America for less than half of that. It's easy on propane and heats up to cooking temperature in under 3 minutes. It's very well built, and cooks real good (according to my wife).

The Coleman mentioned earlier (or a similar model) sells for $159-$189 and is carried by Camping World, among other places. It is "cute" and does an excellent job. The negative: It is a hassle (heavy, awkward) getting it in and out of my truck, and setting it up is a a zoo, as parts fall this way and that, legs collapse, etc. (Note: Problem may be my own total lack of coordination.)

I did buy on-line the optional (almost $50 as I recall) carrying bag, and I think it is worth it. It helps contain everything and keeps grill grime off other things in my truck.

If the Coleman is more than you want to spend, Weber makes a small portable grill grill that is very good, about $49 as I recall, but does not have legs. Weber also makes I believe ones with legs, but I have no experience with it (other than the excellent backyard-type BBQs).

Grill-on, my man.

Hey Lee, Ya know after 6 years of full timing I have gone through my share of portable grills.

The small propain canisters seem to leak once used, so count on a new canister every time you fire up. Sure, I can take the heat, but for the past year I have loved my "Sunbeam" electric grill from Walmart ($29.00) nicely made, just plug it into the campsite and get some of what you paid for. Boondocking, use the 2000 watt Honda or just buy a nice cast iron griddle and fire up the stove top.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Happy burning,
Michael

We have the Coleman Road Trip Grill....which we affectionately call the "Road Kill Grill." It's nice, because you can use it as a grill or a griddle, and you can buy extra grill and griddle parts to increase the size for whichever application you choose. It's nice to be able to cook bacon outdoors....the only problem is your hungry neighbors! :-)

there is a long thread from last spring/summer on grills.....and the many choices/prices/features and so on....search a bit.

like a lot of the folks here, i currently use the little weber/stand which works fine.....and a 20lb rhino lp tank that can be swapped when empty, at walmart and lots of other places..

still i enjoy using charcoal whenever the camp site comes with a built in grill or fire ring.....

cheers

I really like the Weber Q. I gave it my personal recommendation.

Smile Portable grill with easy clean up

Well Lee I searched the other threads and couldn't find this one--very easy to adjust according to what you are cooking. The ladies at the local cookout club demonstrated it. You can use charcoal, some prefer real wood, I didn't see propane used however...

Talking Fold Up Charcoal Grill

My Wife (the lovely Mrs. Gunner), and I have never been satisified with the various grills we have used with our Motorhome. The Gas Grills tend to blow our in windy conditions, (having found our food cold too often), and the charcoal grills seemed to big to store in our storage compartments.

I have recentely found one I really like. It is called the Flip n Grill by Skrazo. It folds down to a mere 2 inches thick and yet has 192 sq. inches of cooking space. I wanted the coals a lttle closer to the grilling area, so I fashioned a grate to elevate the coals out of an old frig rack. Now I can regulate how high the coals are. The cooking grates are porcelain coated as well.

I was preparing to buy the new Weber portable gas grill for about $130.00 when I found this. The Weber was really too big to stow away and I was looking for a better option. This flip n grill only cost $29.99 saving a hundred bucks.

I bought it at Cabellas Sporting Goods Store. It comes with a canvas carrying case and seems to be quite sturdy. The only down side is that it is made in China.
