I think something like this will be what i ultimately move too, i was just thinking out loud since i had charcoal at home and could could get the small portable charcoal grill for a couple bucks. So far it has worked well for me, I'm in PA and I couldn't tell you the last time i saw a fire ban here as some have mentioned being a concern.I have a Coleman version of this but think this is a better product, grill, griddle and single burner all in a nicely wrapped kit.
There’s nothing better than a cool, crisp morning in the outdoors with a pile of steaming bacon, eggs, and pancakes. And there’s no better camp system to create that meal than the Rainier 2X Combo. With the included non-stick aluminum griddle, you have the space to cook up breakfast on one side...www.campchef.com
Thats what I go also, my original disappeared on an adventure that ended up awry (sailboat race). So about 17 years ago after using that one for a decade I bought my current one. It's still rocking. I did have to replace the stem on one of the two I have owned. I would by it again if it came to it, but Camp Chef claims 20k burner temp which would be nice if cooking for more than 2 people.
Those are a pretty good compromise setup. If we're camping local I bring our Smokey Joe Jr. Hardly stowable but dang it cooks steaks well. I use the coals to light up the fire with.Here is what I have, although mine is an older one green in color. I can't vouch for this model but mine has been with me over a decade. Cook hot dogs on one side and then toast buns heat chili or side dish on the burner. Breakfast can have a bagel toasting on the grill and heat tea on the burner.
Coleman is cheaper than the Camp Chef.
Good show. Now if Mother Nature would cooperate and cease the lightning strikes. Hot,hot and dry this weekend.Fire bans are the norm on the west side of the country, especially in AZ where I live. For charcoal and/or wood you need water to extinguish properly. (Your urine won't be nearly enough!)
California has gone all the way to requiring an annual online class and test to get a permit for any fire, even propane!
Meat over wood can't be beat. I have a good propane grill at home but when I want flavor it's gotta be wood.
That's a slab!!UCO makes a flatpack grill. It comes in two sizes and I just picked up the small one for my next moto trip. I tend to do a couple of LNT fires/grill if the location lends itself to it (plus no fire ban) and I'm hoping this grill will make it easier then sourcing flat rocks and breaking down the firepit in the morning to return the area to normal. Good luck!
