So, NEXT week is going to be my second camping trip. Since the temps have been in the 80s+ this week, I was contemplating getting a portable gas grill. I don't need a stand. Every where I'll take it has a picnic table. I want gas so it will be easier to cook for just me. I don't think I need a large cook space, though. I don't want a stove, I want fire. That way I can cook my wieners properly

I was thinking of the Weber Q. Reviews say there's a problem connecting the tanks and with the regulator. It also only has one burner.

There's also a multitude of coleman grills. I haven't looked into these too much. I started getting overwhelmed


I be lost. HELP!

An earlier version of this is what we used all through my teenage camping years.

That was for car-camping though. If you're backpacking it, you want something else.

If you need more than one burner you're living to high on the hog.

Thanks for the suggestion, but that's a stove. I am looking for a portable grill. It will be for car camping.

:P I mean that there is one tube for the whole grill, so one temp knob for the entire thing. No indirect cooking will be had. Not too sure if that matters, though.

One thing is I do want to use this at home, too. Since I live in an apartment, we aren't allowed to use grills on the porches. I could just move this to a picnic table and grill away for the summer.

We've had ours for ever, got it from Walmart, probably 15 years ago. It's awesome, easy, compact.... wasn't too expensive ....and no idea what brand. will try to find it and lyk. When Beest died, several of the paintball team posted memories on his facebook of him getting up in the morning and cooking bacon on it. The best thing about ours is it has a half rack above the cooking area to keep done food warm also usefull for defrosting if that's how you roll..... Because we are many, that extra rack was essential, may not be such a necessary feature for you, but just thought I'd mention it

@monster - I found a post this week about someone regulary cooking bacon on their grill. I found one, actually, not too expensive, that has a warming rack. I actually didn't realize all the other ones are missing it. I've got it all put together.

The only thing is that one of the locking lid clasps doesn't work. I'm not sure what to do about it

Anyways, here is the one I went with

I may need a safe space.

So, I mentioned that the locking clasp on one side was broken. I went to the store to ask them if they could order a replacement part. Instead, the lady took one off the display. She just requested that I bring back the broken one so they could write off the one for damages. Now, it is built and both latches work

That's amazing, they didn't even request the broken one first.
Yes, like glatt said, shop there whenever practical.

I KNOW! It was Lowes Home Improvement, so I was expecting it to be a big production. Nope! Although, now I know that if it's just a small part, take it with me.
