portable gas grill

10 posts in this topic

We are looking for a small portable gas grill for the camper. I am wondering what brands/ models ppl like the best and why.

any suggestions?

I'd say that they're the disposable kind of grill unless you go with with something on a frame and wheels. We have a Smokey Joe and only bring it when we plan that kind of meal. A friend has a Coleman stove/grill and that works for him.

The new coleman propane grill/stoves are good and I have also upgraded the old coleman stoves with a propane adapter that works real nice and gets rid of lugging the white gas around.

If you are looking for a grill only then I would just go with one of the cheap small rectangle propane grills that can be found fairly cheep at any one of the larger stores.

My vote goes to the Weber Q or Weber baby Q. I think if we would have had our Weber Q before we had our big Weber, we wouldn't have gotten our big one. We brought our Weber Q camping and it worked great. Even used it to make bacon in the am.

We have a Coleman "Road Trip". Around $150 if I remember right. Folds down to about a foot tall, so it's nice hauling in PU, even if you pull a 5th wheel. If you tee off your camper gas line, no need for the 1 lb cans or an xtra 20 lb. Quality wise, cast iron grilling surface and round burners(2). Not alot of "lid room", so if you like making stuff over 4 inches tall, it won't work good for you.

We have a table top weber like the one in the picture above. Not just for grilling. Cover the grill grate with foil about four inches in on each end, and you can boil pots of water or cook soup or chili on it. There are flat cast iron grill plates available that fit perfect on it. Fry bacon, eggs, make pancakes. Works great.

We just got a portable Weber table top, cost about 140.00 and shaped something like a football, they had a bigger one but that seemed very heavy, really like the one we have, has a drip pan underneath, comes with a couple of aluminum pans you put in the pan and then clean that' used the small green cylinders,my only question is when your cooking and grease drips down as all cookers would do, when the grease falls on the burners does it or will it eventually clog them up?

I picked up one of the cheap table top ones at Menards a few years ago, it's performed well. We only use it a few times a year camping or when I run out of propane while grilling with the main grill at home.

When I say cheap I mean cheap, it was only $16 bucks during a fall sale. For occasional use, it's been money well spent. It's lasted longer than I thought it would, and when it finally bites it, I'll probably just pick up another cheapie.

Picked up a Weber Q 100 last week for a good deal. Have only used it once so far. Impressed so far. Thing is well built SS burners and a very even heat. This will also be my most used home grill since it is usually just the wife and I.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
