I have had the Weber Q220 for about 13 yrs now, nice even heat, I had to replace the regulator knob assembly last year because it would not get up over 250 degrees. Regular gummed up from oil they add to propane. I just use the 1 lb cyl now. Now it is as good as new

Lol, we just bought a 2021 36FBTS to live on while we sell our place and build another. With building prices as they are, we may be in it longer than planned

And yes, I know charcoal is superior. I prefer the convenience of just lighting the grill and cooking.

So what's the verdict?


Honestly, I got me a little Coleman tailgater that runs off the little green propane bottles. Got tired of the "suitcase" grill that came with mine. Too small, cooked too hot, and was an absolute MESS to clean up.

I went to the Treagor Ranger smoker, comes with a griddle and grill, A little sower for grilling but not bad and then has a griddle for breakfasts, I removed the two burner stove that we never used out of the box on the back of the seismic and was able to reuse the slide mechanism for the ranger, slides in and out nicely, I think I will be leaving my BBQ at home now.

Yep. I do carry propane and charcoal grills on longer trips but my Blackstone gets used every day.

My son has a Blackstone and the pizza cooker. You can not do better than this! The pizza is better than you get at the restaurant.
We can use it because of the weight. We travel all over the country and we have a hybrid so weight is a big factor. The notebook grill fits our needs.

We have the Coleman road trip. Works well. After 2 trips with those little gas bottles, we bought a 12' hose to hook it up to a standard 20# tank. No more little bottles.
We just throw it in the bed of the pickup.

I am considering the Ranger as well. I have a Trager Ironwood at the park. model and believe the Ranger would be a good addition for the coach.

I was originally really interested in the Ranger, until I found out it was AC only. We often camp without power and I don't like the idea of needing to run a generator or inverter just to cook some burgers. I wish they had one that would run off a battery, or even one that would work like the Bio-Lite mini-stoves and generate power from the flame.

Just an aside, I always keep a little bio-lite in our rig in addition to the main grill. It's a fun and easy way to make a couple burgers (if you get the grill adapter) or just boil some water for coffee with sticks and pinecones.

Thanks for everyone's input, I really appreciate it. After fiddling around with all the different stoves and all your comments, we settled on a Nextgrill with a cast iron griddle we can place on top.

Happy Camp cooking!

Weber Summit S-460 is a great built in small gas grill. Love this grill. Big, heats fast easy set up and good looking! We used the rotisserie for the first time and the chicken came out juicy and delicious!

I feel your pain, was in Home Despot a few days ago, a sheet of 3/4 CDX-$75.00. Not sure how we can sustain this trajectory and it's not just here, this is a worldwide phenomena.

Yes, our plans changed, and we will stay here for the foreseeable future. Getting ready to have solar installed, that is pricy as well.

I have a Weber Q and I like it a lot. Thatís what Iíd buy for a gas grill. I also have 3 Blackstones. I bought a 36Ē for our patio and I liked it so much that I bought a 22Ē for the camper. Then we bought a new camper and it came with a 17Ē Blackstone. The 22Ē is my favorite. Itís less to handle and clean than the 36Ē and it heats hotter and more evenly than the 17Ē. Samís Club has a 22Ē Blackstone knockoff for about $100.

I use my Blackstone both at home and when camping. No more burner replacements every year from grease drippings.

We carry a portable Weber gas grill. It will do anything I want to do in the camp cooking area! 4 years and not any problems with it except a battery on the igniter.

Best small gas grill?

Weíve carried the Webber Q for a long time now. Really like it. It comes out when Iím too lazy for charcoal, thereís fire issues or at a private rv park. Worked great with the little propane bottles, but Iíve since pulled the regulator and run it off the trailerís propane system.

Only thing I donít like over my charcoal grill is the mess. Charcoal cooks off the drippings and additionally I pour the coals into an already prepared fire pit when done cooking. Instant fire. No fault of the gas grill. Just how it works.

When I looked up that number it's 3,000 dollars, about 4 feet tall and 5 feet wide. It looks great but I would need a trailer to put it on

I like my Q, I spray it down with dawn and go eat I drop the grills in a plastic pan of water and use stainless steel wool on them and take wet paper towels to wipe out the inside. Nothing sticks

Just think of the power it would take to cook with 12 volts
