It uses the cylinders or you can use an adapter for larger propane tanks. We haven't tried baking on the little one, but we have on the larger, free standing one.

One of our favorite things to do is use the wok and make blackberry dumplings from berries we pick out camping. Terry R.
Second the vote for the Cadac Safari. Have had one now for about two years. Small, light weight, uses small propane bottles, has five different plates for doing different things. The lid also serves as a wok which I probably have used more than anything. Cleans up easy. Great grill. Has its own storage bag. I also have a two burner Coleman stove. I got a cast aluminum rectangle grill plate for it - smooth on one side, ribbed on the other. Makes GREAT steaks. Better than a charcoal grill and faster. I got rid of a dedicated "grill" because between the Cadac and the Coleman with griddle plate I can do anything the BBQ grill did.

This gets my vote too. We use this for both at home and out on the road.

Oh, those neat little hibachis. A lot of great meals on that tiny grill in the early 80's. I haven't seen one in a long time, either.

Doesn't the Cobb take longer to cook food? I heard that it doesn't get as hot as other portable grills, and that in wind the cooking can be even slower plus uneven. Any truth to that?

Hi Mike - I never had any issues with heating with my Cobb, wind or no wind. It just depends on how many briquettes you use. We mostly cook steaks and hamburgers.

none whatsoever, the wind has -0- effect on the Cobb. If you buy the round Cobb briquettes, they are bamboo and self igniting, they look like a sparkler when first lit, and in 10 minutes it is hot and in 2 hours a 2lb roast is done, juicy as if cooked in a crock pot but crusty on the outside. If you put the grill on you can cook burgers and dogs and if you put the griddle on you can do breakfast. It can cook all 3 meals a day. It is just as functional as a propane grill but without the propane taste but with the juiciness of a slow cooker. By the way, you can do a whole chicken on it too, try that on your propane. The Cobb cooks at a lower temperature without burning the meat, it's the design that does it.

Webber BBQ 100 hands down. Functional, transportable (camping or at home), well built, reliable, small footprint but easily can cook for 6 at one time. The rest all either overpriced or flimsy. I'd say the best cast iron grill of the lot too.
