Thumbs up What grill do you use?

My husband and I are huge fans of grilling in the summer and want to buy a portable grill to bring camping with us. I've been thinking of the Thermos grills----either the fire and ice or the grill2go express--but I thought I'd ask here to see what people use.

Any input? Thanks!

I use a Coleman Propane Grill Stove (Model 9921A). Cost $69.95 at Walmart. It's small and easy to carry when folded up. Cleaning is not too bad. It has a removable grease trap. The grill is always going to be the messiest. I got a small bucket and wire brush to clean it.
Ours cooks for four rather well, but the MASTER CHEF has cooked for as many as nine with it!

Exclamation

6xblessed,

We have the grill 2 go. I like it alot , the cooking surface cleans very easy and collapeses down for travel and storage . I also got the accessory travel bag to put it in. I've found that we get four uses from the small propane cyl, so for a home use I hook it to a 20 lb cyl. We 've used it camping and also at the race track as well as home. The only thing I 've found wrong is that the finish on the cover has started to come off. Thermos does not warrant the cover finish.

I looked at the fire and ice , thought the acess to the cooler part was tight and concerned about some one getting burned trying to get to it. also did not see any benefit since it is ice only. I like the convience of the Igloo we have, it runs off of 12v or 120 v with an adapter. cools well and will also keep things warm.

good luck with your quest,

Loren

We use the Weber Q ... it does a great job.

When we lived in a house ... we had a Weber Grill ... although we prefer charcoal ... the propane powered Q is quite remarkable.

I think we paid 89 bucks for it.

Porky beat me to the punch. You can't beat a Weber. They are like an Airstream, with proper care and maintenance.....We use two Weber kettles at home and once we're thru rebuilding the '73, a Weber will be going with us.

Smokey Joe Weber here too

We tried the Son Of Hibatchi last year, but it didn't live up to it's billing. So this year we've got the Smoky Joe. I've always had good luck with Webers.

Nice looking grill but the 7.5" deep grill surface sure is cutting it close for cooking steaks. It would be great for hamburgers. As I scrolled down I noted the larger grill which seems a better choice for cooking of those T-bones and sirloin steak. I could only wish for Porterhouse.

New holland portable grill , have a new holland at home and love it , portable takes longer in cooking time than home unit as there are some construction differences , but the new holland will not flare up and catch on fire if grease drips down as it's constrution is unique and the grease juices ect drip down hit the drain pan and either dran or sizzle and create a smoking effect on the food , the food cooked on a new holland will allways be moister and allmost can not cook to over doneness. Camping world carries them as would a local new holland dealer if Your near one
