Propane or charcoal?

Which type of grill do you travel with? Are there favorite models of each type that you like?

Charcoal only. With different types of wood chips for added smoke flavoring.

We have run into areas where charcoal is prohibited due to drought conditions and only propane was allowed. We carry one of each.

Neither, wood pellets. Great for grilling or smoking.

I always had a Charcoal Grill........large Weber Kettle
BUT when we were setting up to go FT thought one of those Coleman RoadTrip Propane Grills would be the ticket.
Self contained, propane fueled, fold down---storage case.


WRONG!
Took about an hour to clean it up good enough to put away at the end of a weeks stay, hinges for lid popped off after the 4th time using it. And it took up a lot of storage space.


Got rid of it........went to an ACE Hardware store and bought a Weber 14" Smokey Joe CHARCOAL Grill
Fill it up one day..cook on it all week....burn off left over coals at end of week/dump ashes----put lid on/bungee cord and into side storage compartment
No mess/no fuss and GREAT CHARCOAL Flavor

I've been carrying a Weber Baby Q (propane) for 10 years. As we've gotten older and changed our camping habits, we rarely use it. When we boated and stayed at one campground for two weeks, the Weber came out and was used often. Now our typical stay at one site is 2-3 days and just isn't worth pulling everything out. We do take a Weber charcoal grill to Yosemite at Thanksgiving. We use it to cook Thanksgiving turkey and a prime rib on the following Saturday.

With all that said, I removed the Baby Q last month, as we just don't use it. Two days ago, I ordered two Blackstone 22" gridles (propane) for my two son-in-laws for Christmas. They do a lot more grilling when camping. I may order one for myself as the griddle would be more useful for us now.

We started off with the charcoal Smokey Joe but went to the propane Weber Baby Q which we loved. We grilled just about every night... fast and easy. We used public parks and many didn't allow charcoal at times.

Weber Q for propane convenience when called for and 18" Weber Smokey Joe. Natural lump charcoal and I lite it using a paper towell soaked in bacon grease. No petroleum based lighter fluid.

We switched to the black stone griddle a year ago. Gave the Smokey joe to my daughter. I never thought Id replace the charcoal Grill but we are very happy and love the flexibility from steaks chicken and breakfast. Use it almost daily
