Sounds great! I'll look forward to that!

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.

That one looks great! We're gonna look at the Coleman when it comes in and make a decision between it and this one. I'm thinking that we may return the Coleman to Lowes and order this one! Thanks!

If you do end out swapping out for this one I would love to know you opinion of it. We are pretty much done for the season but I was thinking of putting this on my Christmas list! :-)

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!

Some folks dont give the old iron a chance.
The griddles mount correctly by placing them into the racks in a position that slants it down into the rack. That way they are gripped by the rack slots.
I can only rate it a 5 of 5, but I know how they work. My first one was in 1971.
For 30 bucks, they are not a big risk, and they cook grandly.
Another note: the REAL misquite charcoal in natural (stick) form that we get in Yuma is the truly original and finest way to "Q".
Best wishes, #90 😉

Dave, we really like the Stubbs 100% Natural Charcoal from Lowes! It takes a lot less of it than the kind we have used for years, and it burns REALLY hot! It's about the same price as the other, pound for pound, but the bag is much smaller and you'll think you're getting less charcoal!

Joe & Annette: We have used Stubbs and liked it. Could not figure why it was formed into uniform briquettes. Our all-time favorite is Lazzari.

My biggest problem with all of the small portables that fold up for storage is you can't adjust the height of the grill. We have a cheap portable that folds up now but would replace it in a second if I found a small one that has adjustable height.

Neither the Q nor the Lodge are the perfect answer, The BTU on the Q is a little low, and the Lodge is a bit heavy and doesn't had a top, but as I like having both gas and charcoal grills, the attached photo shows the two I carry. Both, including the grill tools, fit in the cabinet. The cast iron Lodge grill/hibachi slides out of sight in the bin and the LPG Q1000 fits where the lodge is sitting. The stand for the Q is in another cabinet
