After using a Coleman tabletop camping grill and the Coleman RoadTrip grill we settled on the same Weber that you have listed as an option. The selling point was for use was the ease of cleaning. Frankly I got tired of having to periodically disassemble the other grills to fully clean them. The Weber is just a cast metal clam-shell with a burner element and cooking grate. After removing the grate there is PLENTY of room to clean and push all the grease and gristle out the bottom. There are no nooks and crannies to capture food particles. I thoroughly clean the grill when packing up. As someone already mentioned the holes in the burner can become clogged. Just make sure to clean the burner each time and you won't have any issues.

So to add to the cost (which is what i did) is buy the more sophisticated temp controller and replace the "hi med lo" one. It is $70 on Amazon. Has an added benefit over the traeger one in that in "smoke" mode you can adjust the hopper feed rate to adjust the amount of smoke.

I bought a table top propane grill at Sams Club. I like it so much we use it at home too.

I've been using a WebQ 200 for a couple of years and like it fine. I have a cast iron griddle that just fits over the grates I use for pancakes, eggs, bacon etc. The Q is well made and has stood up very well. Its a bit on the large size, but not terribly big and fit in the basement bin on my travel trailer and now fits nicely in my MH compartment. I carry a separate 20 pound propane cylinder in a rubbermaid 12 gallon tub so it doesn't roll around. I can't see its anymore dangerous than the existing propane cylinder.

The only complaint I have is the standard WebQ stand. Its a bit flimsy and I always pinch my finger when folding the stand up.

So much depends on whether you are an 'open top' or 'closed top' griller. I'm a 'closed top' so a shallow lid is a deal-breaker for me. I bought a Weber grill (can't remember which one, but it was designed for camping) and quickly melted the plastic closing latch and other pieces because I didn't realize it wasn't designed to be used closed!

I ended up with a Sidekick grill which I'm very happy with.

Well thanks everyone for your posts and recommendations, I went ahead and ordered a Weber Q1200 with the griddle, the Weber Grill Table and the hose attachment to hook up to a 20lb tank. As it turns out, it cost me nothing, my American Express Membership Rewards program had everything in the catalog and it ended up costing me $0.00. (Shipping included) Can't pass up a deal like that.

After reading up on the pellet grill, I think I may buy one of those for my S & B. They look so cool and from everything I've read they work well.

Smoked first pork butt in the Davey Crockett this weekend. Cooked for 12 hours at 225* took off the smoker when meat temp was 197* filled hopper to the top with pellets and when finished it burned 3/4 of them. Outside temp was in the low 40s
