After much consideration I bought the Weber Go-Anywhere propane grill last week. I knew I wanted a Weber because we have used their portable charcoal grill – Smoky Joe - constantly for years and it’s still producing great food. (Don’t care for the cheap ‘made in China” brands that only last a year or so). I had originally decided on the Weber Q 100 BUT …. the Go-Anywhere cost ½ what the Q does and is much lighter. I am experimenting with it now and learning how to use it before I pick up my trailer in December. I blogged about it the other day: http://www.kimbopolo.blogspot.com

I'm sorta/kinda looking for a good one, too! I have used the "el-cheap-o" ones and burned through them pretty quickly.

I'm looking at adding a "quick-connect" propane outlet to the propane system on my ("new") Bigfoot so I can just plug into the on-board propane tanx and be able to do table-top burgers or hotdogs. It will have be to able to have a way to cook bacon on it, (it must have a griddle or a way to put one on!) as I will not even TRY to cook bacon on the stove in the trailer - you'll never get the odor out!

The trick is to get the quick-connect adapters and a long enough hose. This can be done at many places, but I've NEVER seen an RV dealer who can make up a hose to the right length, with the right connectors.

I never use propane at home, though - my deck BBQ runs on Nat gas! It never runs out halfway through grilling a teriyaki T-bone with melted blue cheese on top!!

The little green bottles just don't last. They also seem to leak down to nothing if you just use one for a short time, then disconnect it and put it away - its empty the next time you want it!

You really need to check out the Costco, Tabletop Stainless Steel propane grill that I previously posted about. In Richmond, VA it was at 1/2 price $49.79.

I can attest to Jim's Cobb cooker, as I had some pork roast from it @ the Pa gathering . I'm going to pick one up for myself.

I love my little Coleman RoadTrip Party grill. I even found a dome in a kitchen cabinet that fits it perfectly, looks like the dome on the Cobb. The dome has a vent at the top. I'm anxious to give it a try with something like a roast or maybe a chicken. Something that needs a longer grill time, covered.

This little grill is 12 1/2 inches in diameter and stands 10 1/2 inches high without the dome and 15 inches high with the dome. All collapsed down it is 8 inches high. It has 8,000 btu's and is finally a grill that I can char the outside of a steak on both sides yet have the interior rare. I gone through multiple portable grills over the years and have never been able have a rare steak with the outsides charred. This is a sweet little baby.

For some reason I couldn't add my pictures to the prior post, so here they are:

Joy A,

That has to be the most aesthetically-pleasing grill I've ever seen! And your sweet pup is beautiful too!

Why thank you and Lily thanks you, too.

I forgot to say that while I carry little propane bottles for the grill, I generally attach it to the Scamp's house battery. I have a splitter on the big bottle with a long hose attached.

Is Auburn in California or some other state?? If California are you coming to Burney Falls in a couple of weeks??

Somes we take the Cobb, ..... Sometimes we take the Weber little joe.

The Cobb is more versatile.

I've used this Napoleon Grill for three years now a little easyoff cleans like new. They do cost a fortune but I think of it as a one shot deal and will never need to buy another again.


Freestyle? Infrared Portable Grill
