Preferred portable grill

I'm wondering what JOF members are using. Cooking for just wifey and I so doesn't have to be very big but I'm very particular about regulating temps. I've been looking at a table top Cuisinart. Any suggestions?

A few months ago we bought a Weber Q1000 and did the mod to connect it to the trailer's propane system. Haven't look back since; it's a nice grill, well built, consistent heat.

I have the Weber Q 200 with mods to use trailer's quick connect. Just the right size for the 2 of us. If I had to replace my sticks and brick grill, it would be a Weber Q.

Weber Baby Q! I have have the Coleman Road Trip and it is the worst grill I ever used. I can not wait to get rid of it once the season is over.

Thanks for the advice guys. Just ordered the Q1000. Little more than what I wanted to spend but the grease catch design was the hook. Plus 4.5 review stars on Amazon.

Coleman Versatility

I know you already bought, so this is for the benefit of others who might be in the market.

I am using the Coleman XL because of it's versatility. It of course functions as a BBQ. But I also have two ring style stove top "burners" so I can put a pot on the grill. I also have a half size and full size Griddle which can replace the two BBQ Grills. I love the full size griddle when I am cooking up a pound of bacon and eggs or a batch of Chocolate chip pancakes. The Grills also come out in two pieces so I can mix and match cooking components if I want, BBQing steaks on one side while boiling a pot for corn on the cob on the other side.

Also on the positive side, I have a wheeled bag that the grill fits in so I can put it away "Cleanly" in the hold and it has it's own stand so I can place it away from my siding... I am really no a fan of hanging a BBQ on the side of your fiberglass rig.

There are two downsides to the Coleman... It is big and all of those extras I like so much need to be stored as well, I use a long skinny Tupperware bin. The bin doubles as a great place to wash those grills and griddles rather then scratching up the sinks. The other downside is the proprietary Coleman regulator which is not set up for connection to your trailers regulated propane line. Fortunately for about $12 in parts and a helpful Youtube video I was able to rectify that and now can safely connect to my Rigs propane tank.

I just scrapped 2 grills, a RVQ and a small cheap Walmart grill, $20. a one season wonder for a Weber 1200. So far it is great and I am going to mod it so I can use a bottle/tank or the already regulated QC on the rig.

I still carry a Holland Companion also, its great for slow cooking and baking.

X2 on the Q200. Weber grills are great.

If you want do it the the old fashioned way and cook over the fire, I recommend the Mountain Man Grill. Absolutely awesome to cook over the fire. Built like a tank. Used it for a the first time at Tahquemenon falls SP this summer and cooked everything over the fire. Bacon, pancakes, eggs, dogs, burgers, pork tenderloin, Pike, b-fast sausage, stir fried veggies, canned corn/beans (put the cans right on the grate). Tons of fun, but sometimes the grill is better for those 1 night stops and when you are tight for time and can't get a cooking fire going in time.
