Dave, when I saw this I thought you had solved our problem! Then I looked at the reviews on Amazon! It has as many bad reviews as good! It seems most of the bad comments deal with how the cooking grates fit into the racks on the back that hold them in place. A common comment is "if you have a machine shop to re-shape the parts then buy it, otherwise forget it". Maybe you just got lucky and got a good one!

Thanks for trying though!

Only problem, the way I make my burgers I can only fit 4 of them on the grill
Now I'm hungry for a burger.
This is it

We looked at this one and I know that Weber makes great products, but we still want to find one that doesn't take up as much room. This one is pretty tall, even with the legs taken off! Thanks anyway!

It works fine as a grill but we found it to be too small for us.

And now upscale Kuuma | Grills

Thanks John! Right now we're looking closely at the Weber above and the Coleman that I linked. Although the link doesn't state the folded height of the Coleman, it looks like it will be much more compact than the Weber.

Ken, I'd have to rent a U-Haul to carry that thing around!

I was going to suggest a Hibachi of some sort. It seems the Marsh-Allen has bad reviews and is not going to suit you. All the hibachis it seems, are made in China of sub-standard, recycled metal. There could be a small, USA made Hibachi, but it will be expensive.

We carry two $10-$15 cheap Hibachis that last 2-3 years that came from WalMart or Fred Myer or Target, or similar. At least the wire grills fit in the grooves that hold them.....and they are adjustable. A big plus.

You need to carry something to put under the hibachi if you are using a wood or plastic table. The heat will damage the table.

We use the Weber gas grill you mentioned. We have used it for year, no rust, the metal sides did not burn through. We use it alot and it still looks like new. $59 at walmart, they also sell a charcoal version for a little less. Both easily fit in a storage bay.

I measured the box and it is 16" Tall by 15" wide by 10". with grill inside said box. My Basement storage compartments are too small so I had to give up that much space inside one of closets. Kind of a tit for Tate deal
I remember years ago I bought my Mom a electric grill w/a rotisserie (Faberware) she used it on the kitchen counter, But I think that was even bigger.
I have to think that Monaco has more space than my PA
Thanks too the poster suggesting the Aluminum foil,
What a great idea I usually throw them (Coals) in the fire ring.
Happy Hunting.
Tim

We decided to go with the Coleman RoadTrip grill from Lowes. Ordered it online to be picked up at the local store.

Thanks again to all of you for your comments!

Are you sure you do not want a grill that adjusts up and down. It is helpful.

That would be nice, but just can't find anything else that is well-built and compact. We're planning to try a year of fulltiming and every inch of space will be used!

Joe: Yea, it ain't light. It's solid steel and cast iron. Heats up real nice, though, when you want to use it as an oven! One of these days we'll cross paths and I'll bake you one of my famous loaves of bump-bread! Enjoy! \ken

BTW, to protect the picnic table and your bay floor, rectangular aluminum sheet pans and pizza pans are available from Amazon in a variety of sizes. When I needed a bigger pan I got this because aluminum pans get expensive. Amazon.com: Lumax LX-1711 Silver 18" x 25" x 1/2" Galvanized Drip Pan: Automotive

I know you already ordered, but for anyone else looking here is what I have been considering.

http://www.amazon.com/Quick-Grill-La...0N8NQDFTGPK8XA

I like that it is stainless steel, folds down flat, has a carrying case and best of all looks very easy to clean.

We have a propane grill now and I dislike it. I just think food tastes better when cooked over charcoal.
