Same here. We stopped carrying a grill years ago. We've perfected cooking on a tripod. Lay two pieces of wood parallel to each other about 6 inches apart. Lay a bed of charcoal in the middle, soak with charcoal fluid. Cross a couple more pieces of wood across the top and light it. Ready in about 10 minutes and provides nice even heat. After your done eating you just keep feeding the fire with wood for your evening fire. I wouldn't have it any other way.

LOL -- ít doesn't seem ridiculous untill I actually list them all out. Problem is I can't really pair it down because they all fit a specific purpose.

What is ridiculous is the hundreds of pounds of charcoal I have stacked up in the shed. Every year, Memorial Day and Labor Day, both Home Depot and Lowes have a blow out sale on kingsford so I stock up.

I must be doing something wrong. We have a Coleman road trip and really like it. It was a Christmas gift. We have the griddle and a few other accessories. I don't hook to the RV propane.
I grill burgers, chicken, steak etc with the lid down with no problem.
I put water in the bottom like it is designed for or line it with foil and clean up is a breeze.
As far as the grates, I will let it burn off to clean them. Sometimes I wad up a ball of aluminum foil and go over them to get anything that is caked on thick. As far as lighting, I don't lift anything. I turn on the gas and push the igniter button.
I know there are several different models. Perhaps we have 2 different ones.

That only works if you aren't under a fire ban. We are typically under fire bans from shortly after Memorial Day weekend. We would save a lot of money on food, but we would get pretty hungry...

I have to agree that this grill is somewhat of a pain in the a$$ at times and I'll also agree that there are better styles out there.

Same here. Bought mine around 1990 to use around the house for just the two of us. This is the older model with the wood handle and round wire legs. Have replaced the grates twice. It now serves me at the campground. I store it in a medium size pop up waste basket.

Also have an Olympian gas table top grill but don't use it except for fire ban days.
