gas grills

Our T-1950 came with the low pressure gas grill that hangs on the side of the unit and plugs into the gas line below however we never found it to get really hot enough to sear a steak, not to mention the trouble keeping it lit when windy. This trip we left it home and now, 1500miles away, we have decided we would like to purchase a small unit and scuttle the charcoal grill we carry.
Have been looking at the little Weber 100 that puts out 8500 btu's but are unsure if this is any better than what we had. Cannot find anyone to tell us for sure so am appealing to the collective wisdom here.
Anyone have a favorite table top gas grill they would recommend, or better yet, have a Weber of this size that works out really well?
I bet this subject has been covered but a search did not help me.
Thanks a lot,
John and Polly from NH but currently in NM.

We had a Coleman single burner, it was about 18" in diameter and folded up into a nice nylon bag. I'm not sure if they offer that model any more, can't find a example online.

It was a little small for a family of four and we now have the two burner Coleman Road Trip that comes on it's own stand, that also folds into a nice storage bag. We love it, especially the interchangable grills. You can set it up as a grill, half grill/half griddle or half grate for pots.

We used both on the 1 lb. green cylinders.

x2 on the Coleman Road Trip grill, but we use ours on a 20# tank....problem we have is no where to clean it, since we sold the Sunline and don't have an outside shower any longer....

I have one too but I find it a pain to clean I usually kind of wipe it off if I'm out for a week and pressure wash it when I get home. If I go for a weekend I leave it home. I will say the road trip has plenty of heat and is versatile.

I never wanted to use a grille under the awning putting smoke and grease on the underside. Also in the T-1950 we'd have to close the bedroom area window to use it so I never bought one for the low pressure system.

I've had gas grilles and as mentioned, cleaning was always a chore. In the last few years I've been using a small Webber. I can dump the charcoal in the fireplace and clean it with a brush quickly.

Sure we have to wait 15 minutes to start cooking but we're camping, not in a hurry.

If I've had a fire going for a while I'll use the grille from the webber over the fire on the fireplace rack.

A few years ago I bought a Webber Q. After a few trips and car shows I bought the stand and hose for the 20# tanks. That is plenty hot for cooking steaks and burgers.

Ditto to what Paul said. We had the gas grill and we went back to the Weber Smokey Joe.

I bought a Weber as well. Originally had a Coleman Road Trip Grill, but didn’t care much for it. Weber does a nice job cooking evenly.

I have heard many say they like the Webber Q and I have seen pictures where people converted it to run off the low pressure quick connect on the trailer. Those that have it seem to love it.

On the other hand, .. I have had a older Coleman Road Trip since I bought my Sunny and I love having a grill and griddle together. Eggs on the griddle while I do toast on the grill side. Cleaning the drip pan was a problem but now I line the drip pan with foil. After a week camping I take the foil, while cold, and throw it in the trash and put down new foil. I removed the regulator from the Road Trip and connect it to the low pressure quick connect on my Sunny with a long hose so I can put it almost anywhere.

We have the Weber Baby Q and I use it with a 5lb refillable tank. Has the 2 folding side tables and they are nice. I had the 5 lb'er and hose from our older camper, they fit on the tongue by the battery. If I where to buy new, I would get a 10 # tank, just lasts longer.

I have worked a way to clean it that works... When the grill is new, I line the bottom bowl with aluminum foil, make sure the large vent hole in the bottom is open and the foil is nice and flat under the burner. Then to clean, let it cool down and just pull it out. I only change is about once every few campouts. It is still close to new on the bottom bowl and I'm loosing track of the years we have had it. I think now about 5 to 6.

I put it in a Rubbermaid tub with cover and it goes in the truck bed under the tono cover.

Trust me, I can burn up most anything I want to with it.... The cast iron grate really holds the heat, have to turn it down to as low as it can go once it is burn't off and then start cooking once it cooled some

Hope this helps

John

I really like the Coleman Roadtrip grill with a 5 lb gas bottle. It can be used on its stand or on the picnic table. To avoid the messy clean up, I line the drip tray with aluminum foil; rather than fill it with water as recommended. It's very easy to dispose of the foil: The rest of the grill can be easily cleaned with a Rubbermaid dishpan and some Dawn.

gas grill input

Thank you all very much for your help on this. It sure seems to be either Coleman or Weber so will look at those two. Not sure what the diff is between Q100 and BabyQ yet but will find out shortly. We have only seen the former.
What a group! Thank you.
John

I have a Q100 (I think) I know it's not a Baby Q. It worked out very well at home and I was satisfied with how it performed. We needed something bigger for home so I replaced it last year. Two of our camping friends have the Q100 also.

H'mm, It seems Weber no longer makes the Q series or the re numbered it with the 100,120, 200 and 220.

Gas Portable Series Grills from Weber Grills and Accessories

The 100 series is 8,500 btu,

The 200 series is 12,500 btu

And the 300 series is 21,700 btu

Our Baby Q of years ago looks more like the 120 but have no temp gage. It has the folding tables. I'll have to go look to see if it is a 8,500btu or a 12,000 btu. Memory serves me it is a 8,500 btu. The 300 series looks like it replaced the Q series which where a lot bigger.
