Pros:Portable, runs off both small propane bottles and refillable propane bbq tank. Good flame control.

Cons:Awkward to clean. Difficult to find accessories (griddle) for this grill on Coleman web site.

The Bottom Line: I'd buy this grill for the price if you don't want to spend the extra for the higher end RoadTrip Grill with the two burners and optional cooktop accessories.

Bought this grill at Kmart for $140. when looking for a flexible alternative to my old rusted out big outdoor gas grill. I live in Florida, so I wanted a grill I could use year round and for after a hurricane, but one that I could stow easily in the garage. The unit sets up easily and it is great that it works with both the small propane bottles or a larger standard bbq propane tank. It works well and the ignition is great so you don't need matches.

I didn't know about the drip pan needing to be filled with water for grilling. They don't tell you this part on the outside of the box. This makes it a pain to clean after because you have to lift out the drip pan under the grill top which is filled with water. This is awkward and it takes some skill to avoid dumping greasy water everywhere. The grill top is porcelain coated, but it doesn't clean up as easily as I would like. Barbecued some chicken with sauce and even my stand-by baking soda treatment has left charred remnants on the grill top. Not impressed with the cleanup.

I do like it because it has detachable legs for the porch and is portable, although not very lightweight. I've only had it a short time, so I don't know how it will hold up. They sell a more fully featured Roadtrip Grill which has two burners and more cooktop (optional) styles you can order for doing pancakes and using with a regular pan. I might have looked into buying that if I had known.
