Cons:None.

The Bottom Line: The Best Portable Grill I've Ever Seen.


I spent hours researching portable gas grills looking for good heat, features, ease of use, and portability. Then I gave my wife the link and told her that's what I wanted for Christmas. Good wife that she was, she ordered it for me. Wow! Coleman did a really good job designing this grill. It's a heavy and large portable grill, that folds down into a cart, so you can wheel it around. When ready, just lift it up and the handle and wheels become it's stand.

It comes with 2 grill grates, but can accept interchangeable surfaces, so you can grill with grates, fry with a griddle, or use pots and pans with a stove grate. Since there are two, you can mix and match. Want breakfast? Use the griddle to cook up some bacon and eggs, and the stove grate to brew up a pot of coffee. Lunch? Use the griddle and make up some cheesesteaks or fajitas. Dinner? Fire up the grill and cook up a nice steak.

The grill uses standard portable propane cylinders of either type available anywhere. It even comes with two table surfaces that slide out from either side, and hooks to hang your tools on.

The Roadtrip Grill comes with 2 separate burners, each with it's own control. The grill ignites the burners with a push of a button and the burners themselves generate a lot of heat. I usually end up cooking on medium, because cooking on high results in very charred foods. High praise for a portable grill that runs from a small propane cylinder. The grill surfaces are intelligently designed, so they cover the burner so grease and drippings don't clog the burner, but there's still plenty of area around it for the raw heat to come out. The grease and drippings do go down to the bottom, but it's a pretty easy clean up. If there's a lot, it will drip down into a little drawer underneath that just slides out for dumping.

Many have commented about it not being safe to cook with the lid down, as the handle may melt. Indeed the warning label warns you not to do so. I was very aware of this, and experimented. In my case I was able to cook just fine with the lid down with the heat on medium. I will continue to cook with the lid down where appropriate, but I will be very mindful of it and check the handle temp often.

This is really intelligently designed for a portable grill. I am already envisioning wheeling this thing everywhere. And why not? It's so easy. I can't imagine why people are paying $40 or more for the Weber Q, with hardly any of the features.
