Portable propane grill recommendations

We're planning a camping trip (with a pop up camper) and I could use some recommendations on inexpensive portable propane grills. The grill would need to accommodate grilling for 4 adults. I've gone online and there's a fair amount to choose from: Weber Q 1000 for about $170, Coleman Roadtrip grill for about $120, Coleman Perfect flow for about $90. I like the price of the perfect flow, but I also worry about "getting what you pay for". I bought a portable grill last year for about $30, which was useless. This grill would be used only occasionally on camping trips as we have a Weber Spirit 300 at home. Any recommendations?

  1. I've had one of these for years and they work great for camping trips and 4 adults. They are quite reasonably priced as well. I used to take it on the boat and then grill once I pulled into a cove. Much less expensive than the Q.

      We had the Go Anywhere for several years, when we lived in an apartment building that did not allow full size grills on the balcony. This did the job well -- good heat, decent size for a portable grill and well priced. We used the buy the propane tanks at Lowes as a 3 pack, and they were much cheaper there than camping stores.

        Third the Go Anywhere grill. You can find them on Craigslist for around $30 and they're much easier to haul around than the Q. About the worst you can say is that if it's really windy out, the flame might go out.
