I dont mean to be that much off topic but...................

Gas Vs Charcoal . I'll take my Weber Baby Q 100. It has a push button igniter (no messy charcoal liter fluid or extra chimney for starting the coals). Its so call BTU of the burner is low but the trick is to preheat the cast iron grill. It does a great job searing steaks. It is also great for corn on the cob, fish, burgers,Brats, etc. I have a 5Lb propane bottle and it lasts all season (and then some) and both the grill and propane tank store in a compartment. Its so easy to clean, if there is any residue I just leave the burner on high for 10 minutes and them wire brush the cast iron grate. In the spring I dismantle it, power wash the body and wire brush the burners. It is 9 years old and still preforms like it was new.

I prefer charcoal because I can throw some mesquite on the coals when doing a good t-bone, or rack of ribs.

This new design potable charcoal grill just came across my email today.

It looks like a great package for RVer's looking to save space.

Amazon.com : Fire Sense Notebook Charcoal Grill : Charcoal Grill Camp : Patio, Lawn & Garden

It also comes in SS.

I've been looking for a charcoal grill too! I cook quite a bit over charcoal but do it in the fire pits which is sometimes a bit difficult. Thanks for all the suggestions. I have a gas grill but it's just not the same!

I also like to use my dutch oven and would love to find something fairly compact to be able to put on a table top and cook with the DO. Any suggestions?

We have a Coleman 2 burner stove (small bottles of propane) that folds to around 4 inches. We use it on the picnic table that's @ your site, if not we use a small Plastic table bought @ CW. Someone suggested using a Dutch oven. I have given that some thought and think I am going to try next time out. They come with cook books also, a plus
I make some mean spaghetti and will cook it first @ home then freeze and then use the dutch oven to re-warm. Ive never used one although I have 3 of them
I am not sure about the crock pot and the good smell all day as it cooks, I might gain a few pounds

Joe, I think the one you purchased would sure be a good one too. I bought the Weber Jumbo Joe, which fits into my storage area. I too have to have a charcoal grill with a lid, it's the only way I'll eat a steak. As you can see I just store it in the box that it came it, plus then I have a place for my fluid, tools, etc. It measures right at 21" tall with just over 250 sq. inches of grill area.

I loved the platinum version of this grill and regret selling it. It has a sealed bottom, clamp on lid and used to be called a 'boater's grill'. Safe on a wooden dock or table.
