No lid though? Strictly for grilling?

Glen,

Go to the website and you'll see they have a cover allowing it to roast.

Another issue when it comes to BBQs is are parts readily available?
With Weber it's not a problem, should you actually require a part.

I like the fact that the Volcano is a tri-fuel grill. We once used it burning pine cones.

As well it stores easily, collapsing into a truly small package in it's own case.

My only issue is that it's a little on the heavy side.

As to parts, we had a seam failure on the cloth case, called the factory, and received a new case no charge.

Gotta ask. How did the food taste with pine cones as fuel?

Glenn,

It was just for the fun of seeing what was possible since I never had a multi fuel grill. As some might say, I tend to test the limits.

It was a hot dog that got buried in sauerkraut, mustard and onions. They usually taste good to me.

No hint of pine resin then?
It's amazing how wood smoke can flavour a meat. I use hickory on pork, but never on chicken or steak ( ends up tasting like ham ).

Glenn,
I"ll be more analytical next time. You know about the curiosity thing.

A few years ago Costco was offering Napoleon Travel Q.
We have now used ours for 2 years and it work great, even heat over the entire surface, interior is all Teflon coated which makes clean up fast and easy, folds compact and uses either disposable or large tanks (like most do)

You never know. Could be a whole new market out there for pine cones. Pack 'em in plastic bags and sell them for $5 a bag.
I did a pork shoulder and it cost more for the hickory chips than it cost for the meat ( by weight ).

Hi: arlon... A few folks over on Escapeforum.org are using a marine based Dickinson Spitfire S/S portable BBQ. I can't say how well they work... but they look rugged and probably pricey. Everything I like seems pricey!!! S/S would be a lighter BBQ than a cast one allowing for a side of something to cook???

I like that volcano. I carry a weber charcoal grill but there are too many restrictions on charcoal in the dry belt. I like that I could use it several ways. I never need a lid for grilling or heating up a can of beans so a lid isn't a necessity for me. They all have some merit for sure.

The lid allows the grill to heat up hotter and more quickly, which saves fuel and provides a better sear.

I often roast a chicken on my Weber. Cut a whole chicken in half. Put it on the grill, on low, with the inside of the chicken facing down, sprinkle with spice, and leave it there, with the lid closed, for an hour. Inside of the chicken may blacken, but you're not eating the ribs. Your timing may vary with the size of the chicken and your BBQ.

There is an "in-between" size of propane tanks. We have a re-fill-able one that is larger than the disposable tanks and smaller than the large one. I believe we bought it from Amazon, although I cannot find it for you at the moment. We find it convenient because we can bring it to the picnic table to use for our stove and for a lantern!
Happy Camping!
