Portable Grills

Which portable grill do you like the best? We haven't picked our new AS up yet but the shopping must begin!

I bought a Camco 5500 Olympian which I really like, but Sams Club has one, probably the same as the Costco, which I might have bought had I seen it first and it's almost half the price of the Camco. Not quite as versatile as the hose is permanently attached and a few other differences, but for around $100, not bad.

I have a Weber Q200. It works very well. I sometimes think the Q100 would have been big enough, but last night I had the entire grill surface covered. Great grill.

I don't think there is any problem rehashing this subject.

Many of the grills mentioned in the original thread are no longer available, like the often mentioned Cobb or the Parker we used to love (I have searched the thread many times!). We just lost our faithful Parker grill to age and corrosion (it does duty on a sailboat in the summer and some critical no-longer-available parts rusted out...). I would have happily kept it going forever otherwise. We now have a Magma Newport for the boat, so far it is fine if a bit small and I have a TEC Cherokee that we may or may not keep for a home back up and for Airstream adventures. If we elect to get rid of the TEC I would probably elect to try one of the Webber Q series...

We carry a Weber Q100 which works great for the two of us. Also carry an external propane tank that can fire up our portable stove at the same time.

We just bought the Volcano Grill. Runs on propane, charcoal or wood. Options include reversible grill/griddle, 12 qt dutch oven and a soft cover to make it work like an oven. You can use it like a traditional BBQ and even use a wok with it. Stores compactly and sets up in seconds. The bottom remains cool so you don't have to worry about scorching the picnic table.

I bought a Kuuma Stow N' Go 160 low pressure Grill, and had a quick connect fitting added to the trailer below the water tank. I can't comment on how great it is, haven't used it yet. - but its pretty! mirror polished stainless finish.
