Which compact grill do you like?

What's a good compact grill to keep under my trailer? I'd like an energy efficient tabletop. I see some infrared and others. What's a good one that's easy on fuel and not too messy to cook on?

Been using the Coleman Roadtrip since it was introduced. Replaced burners and cooking plates once so far.

I'm a charcoal fan myself. I have a Weber Jumbo Joe. It's table top friendly.

I bough the Weber Q Grill 1200 last year at Lowes.

A little salty at $200 but works as designed. I also bought the table that goes with it - not the one pictired below. I can set it upon a picnic table or the weber table.

Gives good even heat - works off a bottle of propane - the little grease tray underneath is easy to change and can be found in stores for replacement. I like it so far.

And the grill and table fold neatly into a corner of my basement.......

Prior to the Q grill, I had a small, cheap, portable charcoal grill that was nice in design as it folded upon itself but fell apart after only a few uses......

Here is a link to the Weber Q grill - and I have no connection with Weber other than a customer.

Weber Q | Weber.com

Good luck with your selection....

Yep. I'm upgrading motorhomes so I felt the time was right to upgrade grills. Went from the little Joe to the Jumbo.

This is gonna sound a little over the top, but I generally keep three grills in the coach, a small Weber Q for direct grilling, a Big Green Egg MiniMax for smoking, and a Blackstone Griddle for everything else. I don't generally use them all at the same time, but at least two of them are always in the coach (BGE & Blackstone).

We've used one similar to this one for 20+ years:

As you travel about you will see more Weber Q100 grills than any other kind, IMO.

Cuisinart CGG-200 All-Foods 12,000-BTU Portable Outdoor Tabletop Propane Gas Grill

I love this grill, got for xmass from my girlfriend and it is awesome. Lite weight, east set up, and cooks really well. I cooked 6 large steaks on it easy, with easy clean up and fits easily in one of my bays. The swing out side tables are great too.

We prefer a charcoal grill instead of propane. I had a tough time finding one that was well-constructed yet small enough to easily carry. I finally found the one below. We love it!

We use a Weber Q. Cooks great. A little hard to keep clean.
