Talking Best small gas grill?

So I'm seeing lots of new options for a portable gas grill. Any opinions on the best/worst out there? We've been using the old black box with the lava rocks on the bottom and the small side bottle for too long. Time for an upgrade!

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

So what's the verdict?

I believe you will see an overwhelming number of responses for the Weber Q as it seems to be as popular as Goodyear Endurance Tires in the recommendation space.

I have been using a Coleman Roadtrip grill for years but since I discovered Blackstone (Another highly recommended item) I barely use my grill at all. The Roadtrip has interchangeable accessories and now is used mostly as an outdoor stovetop.

+1 for the Weber Q. LOVE that thing!!

TBH, I've almost bought a Blackstone a couple times though... Just can't bring myself to do it since I have a perfect small electric griddle already.

Another Weber Q vote. Have all 3 sizes! Can get a great sear.

Also you can get an adapter, to use your quick connect gas line if so equipped.

For a minute, I thought you bought the new one with the "anti-gravity" feature!

I’ll be “that” guy. I love my Blackstone and don’t bother with a grill. Does everything a grill does and more.

Iíll be that guy and say the original poster asked about a grill, not a griddle IMO a griddle does not replace a grill, they both have their place.

And yes, I have a Weber Q and A Blackstone and love them both.

I really like my basic weber "Go-Anywhere" gas grill.

It is basic, does a great job, easy to store, easy to clean. I have figured out how to smoke on it.

I too have a blackstone (actually 2). That is my favorite cooking device.

I don't grill anymore after getting my Blackstone, but the best grill I ever had was the Weber Q series. The cast iron cooking grate had solid strips above the burners so drippings didn't drop into the burners and plug them up like so many other grills do.

Last year, I would have said Weber-Q.


This year, we have the Blackstone 22" that came with our North Point. The Weber hasn't been out of the storage bay yet this year.


My buddy was so impressed, that he picked up a Blackstone 22" as well. His Weber-Q is also sitting untouched in his storage compartment.

I have the Weber Q. While it cooks well, I don't care for the weight of it and it is bulky. If I can catch the Blackstone with the stand on sale sometime, I might ditch the Q.

Magma Monterey Infrared stainless steel marine gas grill.
Normally a little on the pricey side, but our new pontoon boat came with it from the factory.
It works great, but is a little on the small side.

We've had a Magma grill (made specifically for West Marine) for many years. Not a bad grill, but the replacement parts do get pricey. For some unknown reason, I just keep throwing money at it to keep it going "one more year". Been doing that since about 2007...
