I picked up a Coleman Roadtrip from Sportsmans Warehouse, on sale for, $150. I like the fact that it's got 20,000 btu's. That's a lot of heat and more than the weber q has. Haven't tried it yet, but I love that if folds nice and compact and fits well in the basement of our coach. Also like that you can change out a grate for a stove top. Someone mentioned it's more of an outdoor stove, yeah, that kinda makes sense. I researched a lot of grills before deciding on this one. I understand that if you keep it sprayed down with outdoor type cooking spray, that it cleans up fairly easy after cooking. I'll be sure to post back here once it's gotten some use, which will be fairly soon, now that spring has sprung here in northern nevada.

Another choice for a small portable grill is the Magma found in boating stores like West Marine.

JimM, that's the correct Tee- the G415, and looks like the correct hose, but make sure both ends of the hose have swivel fittings on them so you don't have to twist the whole hose when screwing it into your grill. I inherited one 12' hose from my father that he had never used and it only has a swivel fitting on the end that connects to the Tee so to hook up to the grill I had to twist the whole hose. I did that one time and decided to go find a swivel fitting I could use on the end and found out I could buy a 12' hose with swivels on both ends for about the same cost as just the fitting. I went to a Farm&Fleet and purchased a Mr Heater hose item number F273711. Now I've got two 12' hoses which actually works great, the original hose gets connected to the Tee then the new hose with 2 swivels connects between the old hose and the grill, the the extra 12' is great as it gives me the opportunity to move the grill around and out from under our awning. If you can find a 15' or 20' hose I would reccommend it. I've seen 5' hoses and would not want to use that short of a hose as you'd be stuck in one place relative to where your tank is.

Thanks Steve, IU'll check our local farm and fleet.
I could do with a Tee on the end of my long hose, and then a 5' hose to the other grille when I need both.

You must be a "2 fisted griller".

We're out for our maiden voyage in our new to us motor home and we tried the Coleman Roadtrip last night. I cooked a couple of burgers and several brats on it. It performed perfectly.

Bought the q120

We bought the Q120. Only tried it one time to test it out but was very pleased. Love the disposable tray for drippings. Will try it several times next week at the beach.

Happy Cooking

Having owned and used a Coleman Roadtrip for several years, I say that I am very satisfied with it. It meets my wish for multi-functionality so I can use it as a stove top, a griddle and a grill. It is small enough for two and big enough for company. It cleans very easy with or without water added. I add water to add moisture for longer cooking times. I haven't tried some other ones, but this one easily meets my needs.

Here's a short note for anyone considering the "O Grill". We bought an O Grill this year and have used it about a half dozen times. It puts out 9000 btus. I noticed some people are concerned about their grill not putting out enough heat. 9000 btus in this grill is plenty! It cooks food faster then our full size weber that we use at home. There is room for 1 cut up chicken on the grill, or about 6 or 7 good size burgers and like number of brats or hot dogs in between the burgers. The biggest thing for us to learn using this grill is that it takes less time to cook food than we are used to.

Do I assume correctly that you meant the "Q" grill? The Webber Q (BabyQ) works on the concept that the 8000-9000 BTU burners heat the cast iron grill grate and that is what does the cooking. I preheat ours for about 8-10 minutes prior to using it to cook. I have done burgers, chicken, fish, and veggies on it and all turned out very good. I dismantel it in the spring and take it to the car wash place with the wand to clean the inside of the casing as well as lining the inside with aluminum foil. I also use a 5 gallon propane tank instead of the small screw in propane bottles.

I have the Q200 grill, and I love it. There is an "O" Amazon.com: O-Grill 3000 Portable Gas Barbecue Grill, Orange: Patio, Lawn & Garden grill, and for the portability, I might have chosen it over the Q.

The "O" is the way to go- when grilling that is!

Too late. Don't rub it in. I'm happy with my Q and if the O cooks as well as it does I blew it.
