Probably most everyone has a grill, griddle and/or stove for camping. I hear a lot about Weber Baby Q vs Coleman RoadTrip but what is the best option on the market?

I prefer my Weber smokey joe charcoal grill, cooking on it is so much better than propane.
hat being said, I have a Weber Q220 gas grill. It heats up fast, grilling or frying with a cash iron insert.
Is fantastic as a gas oven, will go up to 500 degrees and will hold 450 degrees in al but the windiest weather.
It’s also easy to clean.

The one your buddy in the next site is using.  He sets it up, usually cooks your food for you, cleans it and hauls it home.  Hee Hee! ;D

The roadtrips (coleman) are nice because they have their own stand, fold down and have their own bag, but my biggest issue with them is the flame is so low that in any wind, they are a challenge to keep going.

We have a 2-burner Camp Chef similar to this one.  We got it in the spring at Costco a couple of years back for something like $130.

Pros:

    [li]Can be connected to our trailer’s low-pressure quick disconnect with a separately purchased hose.  No need to bring separate tanks and we can use it near the back of our trailer instead of near the front.[/li]
    [li]30K BTU per burner with big burners[/li]
    [li]Can be used with its legs or on a (wood) table[/li]
    [li]Using the legs, it’s at a good cooking height for most people[/li]
    [li]Big enough to use big pots or with their fry grill (highly recommended) or our 14" CI skillet to be able to camp for an army[/li]
    [li]Cast iron and steel – can take some abuse[/li]
    [li]Lots of available accessories (griddles, fry grill, BBQ box[/li]
    [li]Quick to set up – just attach the legs, hose and windguard/backsplash and you’re done[/li]

Cons:

    [li]Fairly heavy (cast iron and steel, after all)[/li]
    [li]Bigger than other 2-burner options[/li]
