Re: The perfect travel grill ??

This is my grill of choice also + desert camping requires a metal container. When you are done cooking you throw in the wood. For larger groups I pack a 22" Weber.

Re: The perfect travel grill ??

There is yet another very seemingly useful grill that is available in gas , electric , charcoal . Stainless Steel removable legs and in an easy to store configuration 26"L x 18"W x 7"H . With over 11 grills you would think that this might be redundant but
my bride says this one is the real deal ! I am sure that I will have the privilege of storage one day soon . It does seem to be a well thought out unit and was available Campingworld and other sources .

Re: The perfect travel grill ??

I've been using the Mountain Man charcoal grill/griddle. It's simple, packs flat and is easy to clean. My only complaint is I had to drill 1/4" holes in the bottom of the charcoal grate in order to provide better air circulation for the coals. They have 2 sizes jr and full, I have the full size.

I've found the Cobb great, especially with their round charcoal which gives easy to light, one piece, easy to carry/store. They also make a folding table/holder that secures the system at a chair height for use. ... -cobb.html

Re: The perfect travel grill ??

When this thread started, I posted about our Pyromid grill, then out of production.

I just discovered that the grill is being manufactured again, and the 12" and 15" sizes, under the Ecoque name. The Website is The design is virtually identical, and a couple of minor improvements have been made (as well as an Art Deco-ish branding).

The big benefit of this grill is that fact that it folds flat to less than 1" thick and is easy to store. You can see how we do it (it's in the green bag) in the piucture from my gallery:

Ours has lasted about 25 years so far, and will no doubt outlive us. Cooks good, too.

Re: The perfect travel grill ??

This old thread looked like a good spot for this.

A new take on the problem. For traveling light.

Re: The perfect travel grill ??

I'm too lazy to start a fire to cook and can't wait for charcoal.

I went with the O'grill

It stores in the aluminess box

And I store the gas in the barn door

Also have the coleman stove to cook outside and store it on the shelf above the grill.

I can also hook either up to my extend a stay propane hook up.
