There are lots of small, light weight grills out there. We have used a Magma Cabo marine gas grill for about 7 years. It's okay. Regulator had to be replaced, twice, but when it works, it works okay, not great, just okay.

Just purchased the: https://www.amazon.com/Smoke-Hollow-.../dp/B07NR9G7BC
Haven't used it yet, but it is small, lightweight, and has nice reviews. I also like that it has latches to hold the top secure when not using. On special right now for 30% off. There are also others out there for less $$$ that have good reviews. Hope this helps!

X2 on the Smoke Hollow grill . The grill and it's components are Stainless Steel .

Lowes has the same grill (different name) for sale in their stores so you can see one and touch and feel before buying. Amazon will save some $$$.

We've had ours for several years and still looks and works great.

Weber Baby Q, used it 2 or 3 times a week for the last 20 years and never replaced a part! I do not leave it out in the weather and only use a brass brush to clean the grill part.

Weber Jumbo Joe. It is small and very light weight but you can cook surprising amount of meat. We prefer charcoal to gas.

We're on our second one of these.

https://www.amazon.com/Weber-1141001...-garden&sr=1-4

Weber has an identical one which uses charcoal (don't ask me how I know - hint, it's sitting in my garage because I didn't read the fine print.)

There's light so easy for me to pull out of the compartment. I use a 5# propane tank instead of the small 1# bottles.

We purchased a small portable grill at Costco last year. It cost Around $140, and works great. There are 2 flame control knobs for warm & cool zones. Was a good buy for us.

I saw a blurb on the news and they say don't use any kind of metal brush on them. Apparently some of the strands of metal can come loose, or break, and have ended up in people's meat, and if swallowed, results in a perforated bowel and a trip to the operating room. They said they see some of these cases on a regular basis. I started using a 3m scrubby on them.

I have used the Weber Go Anywhere and the Smoke Hollow. Both work great. The Weber is pretty light and small. Easier to stow.

We love our Weber Go Anywhere Charcoal. I watched this video, and completely fell in love with the compact, capable setup. So I've mimicked this guy's setup completely. In one small box, I have a grill, a chimney starter, a brush, and grates. These grates can be used bar side up for a normal steak experience with zero flare-ups, or flat-side up for something closer to a griddle. You'll get excellent burgers off the griddle side, and steaks are phenomenal either way. This small grill uses very little charcoal, is lightweight, and gets as hot as you'd ever want.
