Another O-Grill reccomendation.

I had the mid size Weber Q grill, but recently gave it to my son-in-law.
They are built like a tank and cook well, thanks to a heavy cast iron grate.
I carried it along with a 20lb cylinder and hose, but grew tired of the both the grill and tanks high weight.

The O-Grill also has a cast iron grate but the rest of it while well built is lighter, folds up smaller, and can be carried in one hand. Also, the way it's regulator and propane hook up is made its easy to convert it to use a LP propane port on your RV.

That's what I'm doing so I no longer have to haul the 20lb cylinder, or 1lb bottles.

I have a Weber Baby-Q, and love it. I keep it in the bed of my PUP, and pull in out onto the tailgate when I'm BBQ'in... Works great!

I've had lots of grills. Had the Coleman road tripper and found that it worked great but was awful to clean. I always wanted the webber but coming up with a couple hundred for a grill, was not on the budget. Fortunately I found one ata yard sale and love it!its easy to clean and always lights with one push. If I bought that first I would have saved lots of money.

Webber gets my vote!

If you look around you might find it for less.
OK...pardon the ignorance...perhaps it's because I am Canadian...but how much is a "Franklin"?

Benjamin Franklin who's face graces the $100.00 dollar bill here in the US.

Some may call it a "Benjamin" I like Franklin better....

Originally, we got a Weber Q220 as a gift. Cooks great, even has a thermometer in the lid. Downside - it was 3/8" too tall with the lid on to go in any of the stow-bins. It got to be a chore taking the higne-pins out and storing the lid someplace else.

We had a behemoth 4-burner Char-Broil on the S&B patio, After 3 seasons it was in bad shape due to corrosion. I offered it to s-i-l, who's an inveterate d-i-y guy and we bought a Q-100 for the RV. We use the Q220 on the patio.

If I were to buy the Coleman Roadmate again I would get the higher BTU version and the one without wheels.

One morning's breakfast didn't end up too well when a rain shower hit mid way through and I tried rolling the silly thing under a canopy and it folded up and I lost the bacon.

I won't even mention the mess I had to clean up before I could load the thing back on the MH. It almost ended up in the lake.

we've been using the Coleman roadtrip grill for the last year. It works OK, not great. I think of it as a glorified camp stove as the 2 burners are hotspots but not much out from that. the cart is really nice, as are the accessory griddles for it. I like it, but I don't LOVE it and find myself checking out portable grills whenever I am around them. I would love to find something portable with 2 true burners, even the weber q's don't offer that.
