Portable BBQ Grill: Which one?

OK in a separate thread I got your help in deciding how to fuel one, now we would like to hear opinions on which BBQ to get.
We want a BBQ not a Griddle. We already have a Coleman for Pancakes.
Two burner for flexibility.

I have two small grills.
1 is a Cobb grill and the other a Webber q.
The Cobb is a convention grill/smoker. We use it for fish, chicken, potatoes, chicken roaster's and many other dinners.
The Webber for just about anything else.

The Weber “Q” grills are great.

We use a Weber 18 inch kettle grill (charcoal). Husband made a wooden "bed" that it travels in. Remove the legs, place kettle in the "bed" and invert the lid, strap with a bungee cord..works great and we have plenty of grill space for racks of ribs or pork shoulders. Nothing cooks like charcoal (with a little bit of hickory thrown in)!

How about a picture of your set-up. Sounds interesting

We have a Weber at home, a bit large for usual use but fine. On the road we have one of https://www.defender.com/product.jsp?id=930353# these along with https://www.defender.com/product.jsp...222&id=1865185 which enables me to clamp onto a picnic table seat with a homemade base, mount in the truck receiver hitch, or using the surface mount provided put it in the roll out basement tray.

No cooking on the ground or burning CG picnic tables for me.

The original size works just fine for the two of us & has cooked hundreds of meals over the past 10 years.

We use a Broil King Porta Chef 120. It was an item on the company Christmas gift list a few years back. It may be larger than what you want. The legs and side tables disassemble and attach to the bottom of the grill.

FWIW: It is made in North America.

I've been using a Weber Go-Anywhere Gas Grill for years. It's relatively inexpensive, compact and does a great job. Even though it only has one burner, if you dial down the heat, it does great on tri-tip, chicken, etc. There's just the two of us so you may need more cooking area if you're feeding a family.

https://www.amazon.com/Weber-1141001.../dp/B00FX3MH1O

I've been intrigued by the Weber Q grills but haven't felt the need to spend the extra money when the Go-Anywhere works so well.

I had a Magma on my boat and, although it worked fairly well, I prefer my Weber. I don't think you can go wrong if you stick with Weber.

Another vote for the Weber Q. It has a built in thermometer which is important to know your heat level. Another great feature is that clam shell design funnels the drippings to a hole in the bottom, where there is a small aluminum disposable tray that catches it all. Makes cleanup real easy.

Hard to beat a Weber Q. We are on year 6 with ours still looks and performs like new.
I had off brands in the past both portables and larger models. The Weber’s have always been the easiest to cook on.

I got rid of my Weber and got a Coleman Roadtrip because it has two burners. It has an accessory available for replacing one iron grates with a stainless wire grate that you can sit a pan or skillet on.

Check your local Craigslist occasionally. I found a used Weber Q2200 in almost new condition complete with leg set and larger tank adapter hose for under $100.
