Another vote for the Weber Q. It has an even heat and cooks better that my big one in the back yard. If you don't like the little cannisters you can convert it to bigger bottles with an attachment. It also does not take up to much room in the storage bays. Not as heavy as the Coleman and others I looked at.

I have the Coleman Road Trip Classic also. The tray under the burners is designed so you can put water into it --- helps to keep it clean. Can make it into full griddle, full grids, or half and half. It comes with a separate stand so you can either put on table or on its stand. Love it ! The classic is blue in color -- the red one does not have the water tray.

We have a Coleman Road Trip Classic also. Can't wait for it to wear out so can justify replacing it with a Baby Q. Drip pan full of water and coagulated grease is hard to clean, stand is flimsy and almost impossible to level which makes using the griddle an adventure in trying to keep pancakes and eggs from running off. Coating on the griddle and grill wears off quickly exposing the aluminum underneath. Lid is not high enough to close and cook anything other than thin foods like chicken breasts, hamburgers, hot dogs, steaks, etc. Certainly cannot do a roast, whole chicken or anything else of any bulk.

Well! I feel deflated! No one mentioned an Olympian. I've been toting one of those around for 10 years. I just replaced the old one with a new one rather than buy a new smoker plate and burner.

I must have a real relic, a weber table top charcoal grill (rectangular in shape). We bought it new in 1990 when we purchased our Elite motorhome. Cooks good and still looks like new, just alittle clean-up with 409 after every use.

Thank you to everyone for your advice. Your a great group!!

Great choice! Now the next gift might be the folding stand for it.
I also fitted the Weber LED handle light and with it getting dark early it is a great tool.
My next wish for a gift is the Weber Audible meat themometer.
Wish me luck!

Everybody loves the Weber, but it still cannot be connected to the LP system of a motorhome unless you use a tee before the regulator of the motorhome. The Olympian BBQ has a removeable pressure regulator and a quick disconnect that allows it to be connected to the low pressure system of the motorhome. You cannot have to regulators before the BBQ.

Duh! My new Olympian (9 months) does not have a "quick disconnect" that I know of......I do run off a tee prior to the onboard regulator.

Educate me.

Thumbs up

My Olympian doesn't have a quick disconnect either. But I use it from a 20# bottle.

I just replaced my old one this last winter. I looked for a different make, but it is the only one I have found, that will fit inside the rubber maid container I carry the BBQ grill in.

These are all good grills, but IMO WAY too pricey and too big...

These are on Clearance @ Sears for <$50

Made by Charbroil...All stainless

I occassionally end up at a campground that has no picnic table. I just pull out a lawn chair, set my Weber-- Baby Q, on the ground and have at it---.

Jerzey Joe,
We've had Holland grills (home & rv) for several years. Had Webber gas, Olympian gas, & various charcoal grills. The Holland Grills cost a little more and are worth every cent. Haven't had an electric one but the gas ones are very good for just about anything you want to cook.
