Charcoal grilling, what is everyones favorite method?

I like a burger cooked over charcoal YUMMY
I have been using a cheap propane model that I took out the propane burner and I toss in kindling or charcoal to make coals and cook on. It has done me well these past 12 years ... It was sort of handy as the lid fit tight, the wire stands also folded over the top to hold the lid on and it was small. I have a smaller grill that I found that fits in the bottom to raise the charcoal or wood up an inch and it makes the heat source close enough to the grill for a nice hot cooking area. It is still in good shape, maybe I will keep using it. It is also nice as it can tip over and not spill when in the storage.
I also have the heavy duty grill that has foldable legs for cooking over the fire ring. Works well also but I have to get a fire going for that and it is hard to manage the flame at times depending on depth of fire ring etc...

I have a lodge hibachi at home here that the grill area is not close enough to the coals to be hot enough unless you use a load of coals and it's heavy. Not the best grill I have owned by a long shot.

I am debating if I shoud get one of the MarshAllan Cast Iron Hibachi Charcoal Grill. It is like the ones we used to get for the shore place every summer to cook on. I think we bought them at the local supermarket. Cheap and did a great job at cooking. I use to love the fact you could bring the grill down to just over the coals or way up to keep things warm.

Then there is the baby weber... I have not used one before so I don't know how they cook.

What are your favorite ways to charcoal grill on the road?

I carry an Aussie grill (got it at Home Depot). It's similar to a Weber but it's square and it folds up flat. Cooking surface has 2 height settings. I also carry a small (about 1' square) piece of expanded metal for cooking burgers on, as the grill's surface has rather large holes in it. I try to use Kingsford Mesquite every chance I get. I love that Mesquite flavor!!

I like mine over any good hardwood, start it 2 hours before you need it, I've had some days the heat from the coals is just white hot. Later on I do the bacon over the remaining coals, only takes minutes and no mess on the stove or in the trailer.

Charcoal grilling

If you think charcoal grilling is good, you should try a Treager Pellet Grill.
Treager cooking is yummy!!!!!!

I had been cooking on a stand up gas grill.But am looking into getting a steel "adjust a grill" from Wally World or Cabelas and cooking on an open flame for camping with/without my cast iron pans depending what I am cooking.

Big Green Egg

We have the large Big Green Egg for the house. For the 5er we have the smallest. We love them. Cooking using real charcoal, not briquettes. I can cook pizza, smoke, grill, slow cook just about any cooking method. The flavor is great.

I read a thread on escapees about this grill, kinda pricy, but from the reviews worth every cent. There is a website for a company that makes wood pellets from many different wood species for different flavoring.

Treager is expensive. It is very high quality, and does a great job on cooking.

We have a Weber Little Smokey. Perfect size cooks great. I find it much better than gas and seems to fit better in the "Camping" environment. Kinda like using gas logs at a campsite? What's with that.

I like to wait for your meat to come off because by that time the coals are just right. J/K I use a baby Weber or a small gas one. Depends where i'm camping.

There is usually plenty so grab a plate -Guests get served first... lol cooks are always the last to eat, it's the price we pay

Complaints to the cook may be hazardous to your health
