Saw this when searching for small two person grill for camping. Had never seen this type of grill before and was interested to know if anyone on the AS forum has used or seen one of these being used. The on-line videos make this look like it work well for camping.

You're a little bit late, actually. CobbUSA just went out of business a couple weeks ago.

But if you can find one still on some store's shelves, grab it. They're great to cook with. I've had mine for about a year, and use it every night that I'm camping. The fact that you can grill a whole meal on just a dozen charcoal briquettes is a big selling point for me, since I don't have a lot of room to schlep bags of charcoal.

I will admit, though, that other owners here on the Forums have given mixed reviews. Some love it, some hate it. Most of those who hate it hate the cleanup.

I was purchasing some grilling equipment from Firecraft and learnt that they will be the distributor for all Cobb Grills and accessories. I was also told that they had a good supply of LOKI charcoal. THEIR 800 number is 800-745-6109. They also have a web site.

We use the Cobb grill for camping, stores in the truck bed and does chicken/veggies nice. Clean-up is the worst part, but all cooking has a clean-up of some type. I would say "buy" one if you can.

I'm a fan. We've had ours for several years. I like the way it doesn't use a lot of fuel, and the exterior of it stays cool so I don't have to worry if something gets pushed too close to it while cooking. It's really more like an oven though, not so good at searing steaks (or I should say my results have been hit n' miss), but awesome at slow cooking a big hunk of meat.

I have a Cobb that we used twice that I would sell you if you are interested. You can PM me and we can work out the details. We bought a Volcano grill and it works better for storage for us.

I love ours. Use it not just when camping, but even at home rather than firing up the Big Green Egg.

It's small, works well on very little fuel and delivers amazing results.

We just bought from Rasmussen gas logs and grills a Solaire grill "anywhere" model.
It is an infrared compact portable grill. Cooks really quickly.

Cobb has gone out of business. I have one and it does seem to work fine but cleanup is a bit of a chore. When storing in the storage compartment I have to remove the lid then put the lid back on once in the storage compartment. Actually I am looking for something just a little more compact and somewhat easier to clean up.

In all fairness it does work well.

We've also had a Cobb for a few years... It does work pretty much as advertised, but isn't much of a 'griller' - not hot enough to sear two or three steaks...

We've used it for snacks; stuffed mushrooms, asparagus, fondue, etc... also for breakfast scrambled eggs, toast - but it's not the best for bacon, takes forever...

It's great if you don't want to haul around lots of cooking gear due to its compact size and low fuel usage - but, we still use the portable propane grill for the steaks & baked potatoes...

Here's a collection of recipes...

I never have much trouble cleaning mine. Spray the surfaces to be cleaned with Easy-Off Fume-Free oven cleaner, scrub with a soft-bristle brush, hose off, done.

I don't think that's quite right; they don't carry anywhere near the entire line of Cobb products… no Kitchen-in-a-Bag, no Premiere Grills, none of the accessories like the wok or the round cutting board that you used to be able to buy separately, and they don't sell the Lokkit (AKA Cobblestone) fuel anymore, either.

They don't even sell the folding Cobb grill stands anymore, either, even though I bought mine at Firecraft a year ago.

More likely they just have some leftover Cobb stock they haven't sold yet, but aren't a distributor taking the place of the now-defunct CobbUSA. So if you want one, get it before they're gone. Or else plan to order it as an import since they're still sold overseas.
