Best portable BBQ

Postby Juli n Bill » Thu May 25, 2006 12:50 pm

I'm searching for a portable gas grill for our Teardrop. The Coleman Roadtrip Grill LXE looks like a good fit but I wanted to see if anyone out there had any experience with this grill or a better suggestion. I found a good deal on the Linens and Things website, total cost with shipping $164.00.
Thanks,
Juli

Check out the Coleman grill stove. Get the one that also comes with the griddle. I believe they're $80 at Wally World.

I just purchased a smaller Camp Chef with two 20K burners. See what you think.

Thanks guys, wow that was quick. I should clarify that we already have a 3 burner stove in the galley, this is in addition to the cooktop. Mostly for traditional bbq'ing stuff, burgers, steak, chicken.

Finally got a chance to try the "Q" grill last week. It worked great for Brats and burgers. Easy to clean up and store away.Image :thumbsup:

If you don't have a portable grill yet, this is one to look in to.Great for teardropping. It looks a bit alien, but it works great. It even has a battery powered light for night grilling. :thinking:

We camped with Bill (Bill the nut) last weekend and he brought his Cobb BBQ and we thought it was very nice. Perfect size for a teardrop and the outside does not get hot and you can cook any where with it.

Thanks,

I picked my portable gas grille at Lowes last week. Already used it twice. It was mildly costly for such a product, under $50.

I looked for something that is portable, compact, sturdy, collapsable, but big enough for grilling 4 burgers, couple dogs, heating couple corn ears, and used the basic camping fuel/propane tank. I took into consideration the grease which would be left over. Mine has a small drip hole in the base pan, but the base is not toleranced enough to have it drain, or I may have the stands backwards. So repacking requires a little maintenance. Not a big deal, just something to note for use. My grille has the pipe which the regulator screws onto sticks out very little from the overall width. On others the regulator was integral and way out there.

Steve: I've got that exact same grill from Lowe's. Bought it for use on the boat that I no longer have.

Anyway, it works great, I love it.

Here is the one I finally settled on. Wanted Roadmate, but they are almost 3 feet wide (too big for mine) so I got the stove and grill and it is about 2 feet wide. Works awesome, cleans up REAL easy. Just gonna repaint the cover to match the tear.

Has anyone tried the Weber Q http://tinyurl.com/7tfv6
I have always thought it looked like a really nice little grill, just pricey. :cry:
