Small portable grill

I am in the market for a small portable grill. We would like to use it camping and be able to take it in the canoe for our river trips. I have seen the baby weber, and really like the snow peak grill but wow they are proud of it. What do you guys use or like?

This is a great idea. How well do they work? What one do you have?

There are a plethora of awesome camping grills. You have to decide what you want to use it for. If it is car camping it is VERY different to canoe tripping - size wise and fuel wise. Determine what you want first. Cause like the girlies say...size matters.

Agree. Also a big difference between Wood/Coal and gas so depending on your preference there that'll narrow down your choices as well.

I'm in the market for one as well and my preference is wood/charcoal. I haven't found anything I like yet so I came up with this concept. It folds flat to 0.75" thickness. My design is similar to the Esbit Grill in that it is foldable but theirs seem too bulky and too small for my taste. For those who already have one you like, post up and tell us why you like it.

I typically pack an Esbit for legit emergencies, and a stainless grate to put over a fire if I know I will be cooking something I can't cook via fire without it. You can do a lot with a little aluminum foil and metal camp cup. It also depends on who you're with and what the expectations are.

For a "real" stove, that Biolite looks nice. I can't imagine trying to pack a little Weber and possibly coal. The grate from a Weber though, that's easy.

Get one of these Magma Marine kettle grills. http://www.magmaproducts.com/Product...e_kettles.html then bolt one of these mounts http://www.magmaproducts.com/Product...0/a10-240.html to your bumper. I saw one of these set ups at VOT this year he then stowed the grill in his spare tire - no stinky grill in the truck. It was brilliant!

Neil Steinhagen brought a son of hibachi to Uwharrie a couple of times and I loved that thing. Well made, looks like they would last forever. Cast iron and can be had with an insulated snuff pouch so you can close it up and put it away hot. Key was you are cooking on charcoal in 7 mins instead of 20-30 on most grills. I have the Magma Newport stainless and like it a lot but its gas.

Man, I like that hibachi grill! I'm going to get one for myself. I'll have to keep Robert away from it though because you know how he likes to smeckle things up.
