We are looking to purchase an outdoor camping grill for a family of 4, any recommendations?

What's your preference? Propane, wood, charcoal?

We like charcoal, but the Weber Q, obtained last year as a gift, has made a propane believer out of us. Does a great job. As for a family of 4, we put two chickens on it at once, and even sitting on a rack the birds did not touch the nice domed lid. They cooked perfectly. If you want propane, I'd suggest looking at the Q. There is also an available flat griddle for it, to cook eggs, bacon, veggies and other things.

Weber Jumbo Joe charcoal grill here. More prep time but better flavor in my opinion

I have a Jumbo Joe also and like it. You're camping no need to rush.

Different strokes for different folks- I carry a charcoal grill, but since we rarely camp (we are travelers who happen to do it via a camper), I often am pressed for time when it comes to making meals.

My preference is to cook over a fire- I have a sweet grill setup from Awesome Grill. Second to that, food just tastes better over charcoal vs. propane. But, it is hard to beat the convenience of propane.

At home we grill (using propane) 3-5 meals a week because it's so convenient.

We carry both the Weber Q and a tabletop charcoal grill.

Right now Camping World has some nice grills on sale, including the WeberQ and its accesories. Were I in the market for a new one it would be my choice.
