We have the Q1200 with thermometer and we often do a flat bread pizza with dough balls from our local bakery. It can get really hot, enough to sear but you lose the temps fast when opening it. You can also use foil like a gasket to create smaller vents at the sides. I removed the regulator from the grill and installed a 1/4" cross (replacing the tee after the regulator in our camper) with a ball valve and had a 12' long hose made with conventional female ends (not quick coupler)to plumb direct to our 30# tanks. No more small bottles, quick to set up and portable enough to be under the awning or behind the camper.
It can be messy with the drip pan but it stores easily in the basement.

We use a small table top-uses 1# bottles, think I paid less than $20 from local discount drug store, though several years ago. Folds up pretty compact, easily fits in compartment.


This is the same one that I use only in black. Only issue is that in really cold or wind it does not have a pile of heat. But for the price cannot be beat!


+1. I've had mine for 15 years. Replaced the grill once. Fits in the TC perfectly. No mess. One suggestion: Don't turn on the propane with the lid on then press the piezo igniter. The lid can go up a few feet when the propane ignites.

.....it only happened once in a land far far away.......

This is the one that we have. It is small however it is perfect for the two of us and fits into the basement of our Northern Lite Camper.

This is my second Primus BBQ ( other one seems to have found new home at the kids house)
We have no problem cooking steaks, pork chops, chicken, Burgers etc. The burner is close to the grill so there is no issue with getting heat. The 1 lbs bottles are plenty big enough to cook what is needed. We even take this out snowmobiling and ATVing.
Plus it makes great morning coffee

We use this one:

Coleman Propane Grill

It fits nicely in a compartment of the AF camper


I use that one also. Works well and i like having a side burner and the griddle . It's pretty much all you need.

I also have a small charcoal grill i take with me.

We use what Reality check uses. The ole weber special.
Wife bought one of those nice coleman Roadtrip grills for us, but nowhere to carry it. Basically only use it when our friends with the motorhome come with because they have room for it. Actually gave it to them last year.
The little black grill gets stored up on the camper roof, bungy cord to the little "rack" on the roof. easy to get to, out of the way, outside, so any greasy mess doesn't get into the camper and most importantly, it's the only place that grill fits except on the floor inside the camper.

It might not be as "portable" as you're looking for but I got tired of those little grills that use the 1 lb bottles.


We just got one of these. Took it to our winter runaway spot in Mesquite, NV. It’s a great tabletop grill. Cooks very nicely and easy to clean.


I like it too. Its a little big one. [emoticon]

I used have Coleman Fold N Go. This one is truly portable and really lightweight. And it's quite affordable as for Coleman.

Coleman Fold N Go compared to other camping grills.

I use a Q1200 with a flat griddle, works great but as mentioned it's a storage issue. My brother switched to a blackstone griddle, looks a like it would work well in the TC.

We use a Weber Q 100 and have been for years. Fits in our storage compartment in our NL camper (where the factory generator would normally go). I clean it once per year before winter. It stays in the camper year round. Always works, always makes excellent grilled food.
