portable gas grill

11 posts in this topic

I am going to purchase a new portable gas grill for our camper. I am wondering what kind is the best to buy.

Really depends on your size needed and how much use it will get. I have two. I know, why two, but they both have thier place. And I have many guests with most times. I have a large 3 burner Weber with the flavor bars for my large cooking and then I have my portable. I have a Thermos Grill 2 Go. It folds up, runs off of both large tank and 1lbers and is a griddle type with ribbed grill on 2/3rds. Great for breakfasts and then I grill over open fire for big meals, cooks a mean burger and butter fry's fish fillets great. I can fold it up put it in the carrying case and bring with me ice fishing as well, it works great on the pontoon and really is a gem. As I said though, it really depends on how much you plan to use the grill and for how much food. That is why I have two.

Check out the Companion made by Holland. I've had mine for about ten years and love it. The newer ones have some nice improvments over the older units.

Weber Q is an awesome grill. A little on the spendy side, but mine does double duty with a stand as our main grill.

The cast iron grill and sturdy construction is what has kept me happy.

the thing to watch with the coleman grills is do not let them heat up or warm up cause the grill plates will burn.....found this out when we started the grill while ice fishing went back in the house and watched 5 minutes of TV came back out and found the grates melted!!! I called coleman and they said read the instructions and that it clearly states do not let preheat. Good customer service though as they sent me new grates for free!! and oh yeah the coleman grill on wheels is great!!

Another vote for the Weber Q. This grill has a full-

sized,coated, grill top, yet is quite compact in

design.There is also room under the hood for can goods

to be warmed up (Beans and corn) Stability is top-notch

too. Runs off one pound or bulk LP.

Weber Q - No flare ups. Great cooking. A little spendy but has been worth it.

    • Already doing many of these.  It's slowly improving.
    • I was just getting some info on this unit: http://www.zoellerpumps.com/en-ap/product/63-basement-sentry#features     I am sure you could hook up multiple batteries as well
    • Sunday, pulled a group of 3 toms from about 500 yds across private into the public only to hang up at 60 yds. We worked them for 2 hrs and they never got in front of the blind. They finally got closer, but instead of going in front of the blind, they got behind the blind at about 5 yards inside the woodline and could hear them stepping on twigs. Man what a rush. Sadly, they walked back onto private and out of our lives LOL. Kinda wish I was hunting with a shotgun!   3 or 4 gobblers were rattling off behind us in the woods in the morning and shut up by 7. The 3 that we got to come in from private were to the other side and they didn't gobble til they were close enough to see/hear our setup. Those two hours were between 8 and 10. Will try again.
    • They will lose 90 to 100 games again this year. They do not have the pitching to even get to 500. Santana will be our lone all-star and be traded before end of year. Hope something changes but they did not add anything for starters or offensive so until they do we will get the same junk. Really sucks cause i love watching and listening to the games all summer long.
    • % of people that have picked that person. 
    • Some rainy river monsters! 61" 60" and a 54"! Have a look!  
    • Many big sturgeon boated this past week again.  Has been a great year for sturgeon so far up and down the river.  Fish different holes until you find fish.  Use a 3 ounce no roll sinker, a 1-1.5 foot leader, and a circle hook loaded (called a sturgeon rig) with frozen shiners and crawlers for best results. Anchor boat up stream of a deeper hole and pitch sturgeon rig into the hole. Heavy equipment is preferred.  Pike fishing is going good right now in shallow bays and on the Rainy River. Best methods so far are using buzz baits or lying a frozen cisco on bottom with a hook and weight(similar to a sturgeon rig but with less weight).   Pike are active in bays. The lake and bays and water starting to warm up and pike are being caught.  Pike are open all year up on LOW.   Up at the NW Angle, the ice is gone and it's open water.  Remember, walleyes open May 13th, pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN and sturgeon fishing through May 15th and then again July 1st.
    • Was clearing some downed trees from trails this morning. Checked a couple of trees and would you look at that. I didn't look very hard so I'm sure there are more, but of course have to head to work. Cold weather predicted after today though...  
    • Fished the Chip this weekend and found some success.  Lots of crappie action in select bay and bottle neck areas near warm water, timber and old cabbage.  Bobber and minnow was best, but anything was working.  We kept 10 smaller fish for the 3 of us and that was plenty of fish for us.  No need in keeping 25 fish (what a joke).  I wish the DNR would reduce the limit in WI!
    •   CM..that is a big "if" and pretty much the story of the series...good puck possession, lots of shots, few goals...and they have to find guys that can score against the "Allen's" of the world going forward...we aren't going to be playing against trash tenders come any playoff time.   Agree with your observation on the D zone coverage...way too much stick checking all over the ice by both forwards and Dmen...lack of putting body on opponents is either A  - pure laziness or  B - simply outmatched physically. This has to be addressed going foward.   Quite frankly I cannot think of one player that stepped up in the playoffs and played above their reg season...not one.    Haula seems to be a headcase...I don't think he is near as good as he thinks he is and tends to beat to his own drum IMO but we might be stuck with him. Ek will figure it out...playing in the World's now after playing in the Junior World's as well so he'll keep working on his game and be a good one soon IMO.   Will be interesting to hear Fletch's spin on things when he assesses things publicly soon but my guess is it will be "the sky is not falling...blah blah blah" same dump every year.  Sounds Like Leo is keeping him unfortunately...but he's made his own bed, now he has to sleep in it and there are not many GM's in the NHL that envy his postion IMO.
