Q here too. Bit of neat freak line bottom with aluminum and heat the grease off grill with quick scrape down and pop it in the basement cools down quick and heats up quick. All that being said you can't beat a 1970s hibachi for flavor...lol

All very good questions. We bought a 36" Blackstone Griddle last year. When we camp, we are always cooking for a decent group of people and its portable enough that it can be brought any where we go fairly easily. Its not the cheepest unit out there, but it has served us well. They also make a Grill top for the unit for about $100 extra if you want a flat top and grill top. Check out this thread in the campfire cooking section about the griddle. There is at least two of us on the forum that have them and I'd highly recomend to all. Heres the link https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=18027

If your interested, www.griddleguru.com is their main retailer, but I bought mine at a local department store for about the same price as they go on sale at that site.

I got a Weber Q1xx series (before they went to 1000, 2000 etc and raised the price) and I absolutely LOVE it. It's very portable, easy to use, puts out lots of heat, has plenty of grilling space for me and DW and more if I need it. I'm still running mine off the 1 lb canisters because I have a bunch of them hanging around, and one lasted me an entire season.

I do love the taste of food grilled over charcoal, but when it's just me and DW, it's not worth all the time and effort it takes to stoke the coals, cook, then deal with the hot coals and ashes. I just fire up the ol' Weber, and I'm off and running in minutes, and I just put it back in the pass-thru storage when it's cooled off. I clean it out every couple trips to ensure I don't get unwanted visitors in the trailer (I keep it in there permanently).

I have a 12' hose that I can hook into my main propane tanks if I need to. The long-term plan is to get a propane tree to put on the 20lb cylinder I keep for our Camco Little Red Campfire. Then I can hook my campfire, my grill, and my burner into it and run my Coleman propane lantern on top. Portable outdoor kitchen at its finest IMHO. Bonus is it can all be used separately if I want to run any one thing at a time, and I can use it all whether I have my trailer or not!

I would say that for the last 15 years we have been using our Thermos Grill-To-Go which was fantastic, albeit because of the rather long cooking plate it was a pain in the butt to clean up on a campsite. It traveled everywhere with us and it provided many Hot Dog Lunches for the Little League Teams I coached and the tournaments we went to over the years. A good unit, but kind of Bulky so I won't miss it much. I am hoping to sell it for about $40 actually since it has plenty of life left in it, just the teflon plate is showing wear after all the use.

Another vote for the Baby Weber Q. I debated on the portable stand and finally decided yes. Glad I did because I can roll it to where I want vs. what's available.

Oh yeah, get the hose adaptor/extension and use a 20# propane tank with it.

I was like you at first and couldn't decide.. Then it came to me one night while drinking wild turkey and swatting skeeters.. When the neighbor went in for the night I went over and used his.. Done it ever since I found I don't have to stress over it anymore.. Cheers.

I've had a bunch of them. First started out with the RVQ, that one was really inconsistent, and I really didn't like the idea of it being mounted to the camper. Next was the BabyQ 100, which *should* have been a great grill. It was easy to clean, very portable but it just seemed to steam our food not grill it hot. I have the Coleman now with the changeable plates and the water pan under the grills. While it should be easy to clean, I find it a task to do so, but it does clean up nicely. It cooks very hot and has 2 separate burners.

I also cary a Smoky Joe 14" which can be lined with foil for easy cleanup and gets the great charcoal flavor and a Big Red fire pit which can be used to cook too.

I really wanted to like the Weber and maybe the lager models cook better? Maybe it was just mine? Additionally for me, I also tote a 20b propane bottle so I don't have to mess with those little containers. For me having a grill stand and cover are critical. I do not like using the grill on a table, and the Coleman has a very nice stand, cover and changeable plates.

Anyone tried the Char Broil Grill2Go yet? We just purchased a new White Hawk and are waiting on delivery. I went to Lowes last week to buy a little Weber, and came acrossed the Char Broil. I've had several Charbroil grills in the past, and for the money, they are tough to beat. Thinking about trying this one to go alongside a mini BGE.
