Bbq grill

I have a question on grilling while camping. What kind of grills do you typically want to get? I just bought a Coleman sportster grill and now having second thoughts on if it will be big enough for us. Any thoughts would be helpful thank you

How many is "us" could help you answer the question. Have a grill half the size and have no problems cooking for 4-6 people, all depends on what's cooking and how you plan.

Sorry we have 4 constantly but 6 on rare occasions (when the 18 year old and boyfriend thinks it's ok to hang out with mom and dad)

More grill!

I can't say I have seen the "Sportster" before... But in the pics on the box, it looks like it might be a little dainty for 6 adults. But that depends on what you are cooking as well. When I go out with the boys I need all of my Coleman XL to fit our Costco size T-Bones. But if it is the family I am camping with, 6 Fillies would fit no problem on your grill... Of course it does not look like there would be room left to BBQ the veggies

Return that piece of garbage grill. I have one and hate it. All it is is two circle burners under the grill area. That's great if you want to boils a pot of water but not good if you are grilling food. The parts of the food over the burner will burn before the parts over the edge of the grill area are cooked. Very uneven heating. I have replaced it with a Weber Baby Q 2000.

Edit: My grill was the Coleman Road Trip. Maybe this one is better.

I use a Weber Baby Q, no probs cooking for 4. With careful placement I can grill for more.

Have to disagree. We have used our road trip colman for 6+ years and it has served us well. To each their own but for travel and camping it is the best we have ever had. Easy to stow, easy to set up, and folds up in a flick of the wrist. The heavy grates heat up and sear a steak or burger and the relative small size often is called on to feed 6 or more people. You just have to be creative and not try to throw it all on at the same time. 95% of the time its just the 2 of us but when friends stop over it still gets the job done.

People tend to have favorites and the road trip grill is not my choice for my home grill. For the camper it is perfect and I would highly recommend it.

I love my Webber Q! Converted it to hook up to quick connect on the 5er. I consistently cook for 6 on it and have had no problems running out of space.

Also....be on the look out for end of summer clearances on grills! I got my Webber Q2000 for $75 at Home Depot...end of summer clearance!!

http://www.westmarine.com/buy/magma--marine-kettle-2-gas-grills--P015_452_001_522?recordNum=17[/URL] Just throwing out what we've been using for years. A little pricey, but has lasted for about nine years so far. Did have to replace the regulator last season, but West Marine had them on the shelf at their store. We.ve cooked for anywhere from two to six people with it.
