Nothing beats cooking on Cast Iron. All our cookware in my house is for the most part cast iron and I have started bringing more cast iron on my trips because its worth it despite the weight. Lodge makes a cast iron grill and so does the lesser known Cajun Cookware brand.

I have the Magma Newport stainless and like it a lot but its gas.

Finding a decent portable grill has been a major pain for me. Nothing seems to be exactly what I'm looking for, and I refuse to pay more than I paid for my home grill for something smaller.
My criteria:
- Gas
- Small and rectangular
- Handles must stowe away small, not protrude obscenely when packed up
- Must be well made(everything I find is held together with tiny spot welds and wing nuts)
- Not ridiculously expensive

Every spring I look for a new portable grill and I every year I buy nothing because they all suck.

I'm a recent convert to cast iron ... lodge pans are not expensive and thrive on being used.

I've been using the Weber Go Anywhere Grill for a few years now. Use it Tailgating, Beach, and Camping. Def. gotten the moneys worth on it.

I have had a mini Weber for many years now... It's been very durable, cooks hot and evenly, and the igniter button still works. I stow the grill brush and spatula inside it when I travel with if and there is room for a small pan or pot too. The size is big enough for grilling for a few people too. You can get a manifold for a 20 lb tank and set up a lantern/grill/stove all at once if you need that full base camp experience.

If the size/bulk is acceptible, and if propane is bot a problem, then for the price you can't go wrong.. Better than mulling it over for years and getting nothing!

How's the build quality? That giant protruding handle on top irritates me. Makes it impossible to stack anything on top of it when packed away in the back of the truck.

Its pretty solid for what it is. Very Simple. Its a Weber! And its pretty inexpensive.

Im sure you can modify the handle on top, but the lid get pretty hot. I havent had any issues packing it.

What I want is a portable gas grill that is solidly built and can be packed for off road travel without worry about damage. Is there anything out there?

It's not gas, but I bought a "lotus grill" a few months back and am super happy with it. It uses a small amount of charcoal and almost lives up to its billing as "smokeless." There is a small battery powered fan that improves the heat a burn quality of the charcoal. It packs great and I can take a weekend's worth of coal in a large ziplock bag. I got the pizza stone accessory and use it to make pancakes. The thing is so convenient that we use it a lot at home instead of firing up the big grill.

There are many options for charcoal grills, but that is not what I want. I can cook on the fire if I wish.

It's a steel box, you're not going to damage it...

Pack it in, throw anything I top of it, it'll be fine.

Other than the stupid handle on top, it is probably the best choice I've seen. The handle messes up packing a lot.

The problem is that is does not seem to exist in Canada.

Back in the day, someone used to make cast iron bodied grills that packed great. I only see charcoal versions now.

Or get something like this and use it on the classic two burner coleman stove.

I'm going with a snow peak single BBQ box, small and more pack able than my webber q that am using currently. Also I want to switch to charcoal.
That and an msr dragon fly burner, will pretty much take care of everything I do.

We have and use snow peak. We have a single and a double, and I won't lie, I was super pissed when Cvc got the double a few years ago because of the expense but they are awesome. They heat quickly with very little charcoal and suit us for what we cook while camping. We have cooked quail, pesto flank steak, rosemary ranch chicken, etc..and all have cooked evenly and easily. Hands down my favorites.

Be. Ice to find a box I can secure to the SW rear door and keep a Coleman in.
