Portable gas grills

DH has a birthday on 31st july and I would like to purchase a portable gas grill. Any recommendations, also several campgrounds do not allowing grills to be place on their picnic tables. Any help appreciated.

I got a Kuuma Stow and Go Stainless Steel Grill. You can get a stand and a case for it that holds the grill and two propane bottles. I like it, West Marine had them on sale for $99.00 when we got ours about 3 months ago. Do a search on the name Kuuma, the price varies substantially.

I settled for a Bunton (sp?) camping stove which has a burner and a grill area, runs off the small propane cannisters of which I always have a few spares around.

If you're used to a Weber style grill, this will take some adjustment since the food is close to the flame. I learned to turn the flame down way low, skip the "searing" of meat, and turn food more frequently. I really prefer the kettles like the Webers, but the portability, small size, and easy cleaning convinced me to give this a try.

So far I've done everything from bacon to fish and veggies with decent results. A cannister lasts for about 2 hours of flame in my experience and you can swap them out mid-cooking if necessary.

We have had more portable grills that I would care to remember.

For us, there is only one grill that represents good quality plus value for money.

The Weber Q-100.

It will not rust, it is easy to clean and it cooks better than most other grills that we have used. We average about 8 meals on one small cannister of gas, so it is also very economical to use.

We are confident that you will not regret buying this product.
(No - we do not own Weber shares, although this would probably be very profitable )


.....and Happy Birthday to DH.

I have a Thermos To Go grill it comes with it's own stand I think the newer ones are attached. I also bought a 4 ft hose adapter and a re-fillable 10# gas bottle that I use instead of the 1 pound cylinders. You can buy many accessories for the grill, I have a griddle for eggs and pancakes. You can grill on one side and use the other burner as a side burner like on larger grills. A nice advantage is it is all washable and easy to care for.

DW and I have the Weber Baby Q, with the stand, we have had the grill for some 6 years now, and it looks and functions as new, small and easy to store.

Weber is the way to go. The table top one is just right for up to 4 people. Easy to keep clean and cooks great.

Another vote for the Weber Q. I have four different grills and the Q is by far the best I have ever used.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

To solve the grill on the picnic table issue, CW has a stand that folds flat for storage, sets up easily, and will hold most any of the small propane grills that coach people typically carry around.

I have never owned a Weber Q, but everyone seems to think they are the best; may have to look into it. I have a typical rectanular fold-up unit that I picked up end-of-season at WalMart, works great, and is self-igniting - I have hair on the back of my hand again.

Also, it is light weight, an issue with many of us MHers. I use the 1lb. propane bottles for the same reason, I don't want to carry a tank around. If I used it seven days a week for months on end, that might different.

Good luck, and have fun.

I have the Coleman Roadtrip Classic, it can be table top version or has its own folding table. It has both a griddle or a grill with 2 burners. I have the hose to run it off the main tanks, or if need be use the portable 5 lb for remote location. Easy to clean with electric start, no matches.

We have a weber at the stick house and carry a weber Q120 in the MH. You won't be sorry.

I got the Aussie Traveler when Lowes had an end of season sale and got it for $59. Just cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner for 20 on it at the beach this past Saturday. Thats a lot of pancakes, chicken, kilbassie, burgers, dogs and potatoes.

This one was caught in the fire when my Vectra burned and survived.
