Which grill?

I'm new to the whole camp life so I have no clue as to which grill would be easy to tote around. I have looked back on previous posts about grills and the two that got the greatest response were the taegen (spelling?) and weber q. I'm no grill master...I throw some burgers and veggies on and I'm done. When everyone kept saying weber q I looked them up and they have like 5 diff models. Also, what's a good little table that's easy to tote to put the grill on? And one more question...how is everyone using it (are you using separate propane tank?).
Thank you in advance

I have the Weber Q 100, I have used it for several years with no problems. You can buy the stand that attaches to it or as I do a small folding aluminum table at Walmart. You can use the small little canister tanks that last 2-3 cooking times or buy the connector to hook it up to a regular tank. I also carry Weber charcoal grill and we cook over a fire.
Both are highly rated grills, just look at both an see which one will work for you

We use the Weber Q 2000.. along with their stand to fit it.. The stand is nice , it folds almost flat and has 2 wheels on the 1 side so it can be rolled to the spot with the grill on it.

My buddy has the Q1000 and its nice , a bit smaller but fine for camping...

It is hard to go wrong with either Weber model..

We use a Coleman (the blue model) purchased at Camping World. It can be connected to a portable propane tank however the small disposable propane tanks also work. We use about two disposable tanks per year and buy when Walmart has them on sale. The grill was purchased with a stand that has two side tables and the stand folds down for easy storage. Also easy to clean. Had it for six years and is trouble free. I am not a great cook so we use it for when the grandchildren visit to "burn" hot dogs and hamburgers or do pancakes. This blue model can has a couple of different grill insert types including ribbed for great hamburgers/steaks, flat for pancakes/fish and an open "burner" type for pots and pans. The inserts can be mixed so two pancake grill inserts can be used together (lots of pancakes/bacon/sausage or mixed with an open burner type for making coffee (in a peculator coffee maker) or boiling/cooking in a pan. Our RW indoor cooking is our number one cooking for the two of us.

The Traeger is a wood pellet grille if I'm not mistaken. The Weber is LP.

We have the Q120 which is slightly different than the Q100 in that it has a battery operated igniter. I've been through every Coleman made and they all were terrible. I finally broke down and got the Weber. We love ours. I bought one for my daughter and it has some issues with the regulator inlet falling off and spewing liquid propane all over the place as the tank fell off, but I hope that is an isolated issue.

The Q200 and Q220 is larger surface, but a little heavier.

We use the Weber cart that folds up, and holds the both sizes of Q. Those plastic folding tables sold at Camping World can be a little problematic in that they can melt if you really get some hot stuff going.

I had a Coleman Roadtrip grill and liked it but soon tired of the large size and weight. Gave it to my kids. Now have O Grill 500. Like it as we don't have a need for the larger size and it is easy to get in and out of the front compartment.

We purchased the Weber Q 100 when we started full-timing three years ago. We have used it frequently during our travels. We have a small table we put it on while cooking out. Very pleased with the quality and performance.

Another vote for the Weber, I made up a 20-25' & tee'd off the curb side lp bottle so I can move it anywhere & not have carry another bottle.

We carry the weber Q 1000 and the portable Trager. Set them both up and use just about every day. The trager makes a killer pork shoulder roast and drives the other campers crazy with the fabulous smells.

We have the Traeger grill and love it. 1) set the temp and go get a cold one. 2) put the meat on and set back and enjoy the cold one. 3) pull the meat off and you are the star cook. 4)tell everyone how hard you worked at getting everything just right...

We have an old charbroil grill that I mounted to a miter saw stand to make it portable. Uses 20 lb bottles and will cook most everything we throw at it. But we also carry a PTG Traeger, portable tail gater. The smoke does drive everyone crazy at the campground. Take our sweet time smoking or cooking hot and fast, the Traeger does well but isn't huge in capacity. We have done Pork Loins, chops, burgers, chicken breasts, dogs and brats. All turn out very well. Yes I do have to buy hardwood pellets, but with the temperature control I can smoke for hours without drying out the meats. Warning, Posting a few pictures, hope it doesn't make anybody hungry. I might possibly post later showing my portable gas grill I made using a miter saw stand.

You're absolutely correct. That wasn't very fair at all.

We've had Weber Q for almost ever, before they rebranded it the Q200. I have the portable stand (2 wheel) that works well, if we have a campsite with a table the 200 just sits on the stand on the table. There are 2 parts that can be replaced, the burner and the grille, we will be on our third set this summer.

I have a propane cable that connects to a 20 lb. cylinder, the cylinder lasts almost a full camping season.

I would go with the newer Q models and ignore the sheet metal grills (been there, done that!).

I just bought the weber q 1200 with cart. After researching several portable grills from char-broil, coleman and weber I found the small footprint of the weber q 1200 to be the right size for portability and storage. Most of the time I am only grilling for two people so the grilling surface is the right size. I also liked how easy it is to use the drip pans and how easy it is to clean.
