Masters of the Grill - Speak Out!

With Father's Day approaching thought (for once) I'd be prepared with the DW asks what I wanted for FD. Have prioritized my list and a portable grill is #1. Currently have one that cooks about four burgers. Looking for something larger, propane powered, that I can fit in my cargo slideout. Open to all suggestions. Thanks.

Richard, We have a Coleman Roadtrip Propane, uses the smaller 1lb bottles or you can attach to a big cylinder. It came with two cast iron grates, we purchased the additional full griddle, does an excellant job, and folds for storage an optional cover is available. We really like it.

Richard, check out a Broil King Porta-Chef, legs pull off, has a bag that grill and legs go into. Has one of the largest grilling surfaces for a portable that I have found, warming rack also with a lot of BTU's. Used ours for a lot of years and am very happy with it. See link below:

Here's a second recommendation for the Weber Baby-Q. I've been using one for the past 1-1/2 years and think it's one of the best grills I've ever owned, large or small. I carry a 5lb external propane tank and a few spare 1lb'ers as backup.

We love our baby Q. Got it on line with extension hose for larger bottle/tank, cover and stand. Stand is not the most user friendly to set up and take down but is sure does stow nicely and great to have when you don't have a picnic table.

Travel with a Coleman LXE. I like the fact I can convert to a griddle for breakfast outside.
I've owed several webers b4 and can't say anything bad about them.

We recently bought a Thermos Grill 2 Go Advantage with the stand. What is especially nice about it is the valves are separate from the regulator. That allowed me to get the fittings and hose extension to run it off the rig's cylinders and still have the option of using the disposable cylinders if we want to.

It does a great job cooking burgers and chicken. We used to have a Weber Go Anywhere portable grill but had a continuing problem with the burner going out in even a light breeze.

I got tired of getting out the grill, bricketts, and/or fuel and etc, so I got a Geroge Forman Electric grill. Big enough to cook 30 or so hambergers at once. Does steaks perfect everytime. Just plug in and its ready to go. If we are dry camping just turn on the genset and away we go. Easy clean-up and storage. Got it at Bed Bath and Beyond (got it in the beyond section) after senior discount and their usual 20% off, it cost les than $40 bucks. We liked it so much, got one for the stick house now also. s/Toby

I also favor the Weber Baby-Q. I have a collapsable wire stand from Camping World that we use for boondocking. Most of the time its on a picnic table connnected to a 5 gal bottle. Works great, no problems in over 2 years of ownership.

I have a Perfect Flame portable grill from Lowes. I don't see it on their website but saw it in the store today. I have mine about a 1 1/2 yr and love it.

It is a rectangle shape w top shelf. Has solid legs maybe 6" that fold completlt flate under the grill for storage. There are 3 sizes now I noticed today in the store ranging from about $40 - 70. I've used mine extensively and it still looks like new. I have always run my grills off my coach's tank.

Happy Father's Day a little early!
