Best Portable Grill Overall: Weber Q1200 Liquid Propane Grill

Having considered a vast array of options, the portable grill that wins our vote as best model currently on the market is the Weber Q1200 Liquid Propane Grill. In the past few years, this grill has earned rave reviews and become a top-seller with campers all around the globe. And with good reason…

The Q1200 boasts a single, stainless steel burner with an output of 8,500 BTUs-per-hour and boasts “infinite-control,” adjustable burner valve settings to provide for precision grilling with different types of food. Importantly, that single burner takes the form on an elongated “O” that ensures an even cook across the grill’s cooking area which, at 189 square inches, is big enough to cook plenty of eats for four to six people at a time.

The build quality of the Q1200, however, is what really sets it apart from its peers. It’s made with porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grates that can be removed and which are far easier to clean than stainless steel, and also a cast aluminum lid and body that retain heat and are tough enough to deal with the odd bump and bang should you knock the unit over or drop it during transportation.

Other hugely endearing features found in the Q1200 include a duo of folding tables on which you can keep utensils and plates, a push-button ignition, a grease tray and catch pan, built-in thermometer, and a robust, glass-reinforced nylon frame that elevates the unit above any surface that might burn and also provides a solid base that won’t wobble while you’re doing your grilling.

At 29 pounds, this isn’t the lightest portable grill out there, to be sure, but in return for your effort in carrying all that weight to your campsite you’ll be getting a device that can’t be matched in terms of performance and user-friendly practicality.

Weber Q1200 Liquid Propane Grill Key Features:

  • 8,500 BTUs
  • 189-inch cooking surface
  • Adjustable cooking temperature
  • Wind-proof design
  • Folding tables on either side
  • Built-in thermometer
  • Stainless steel burner
  • Porcelain-enameled, cast iron grates and cast aluminum body

Best Portable Gas Griddle: Blackstone Portable Gas Griddle

Best Portable Gas Griddle
Blackstone Portable Gas Griddle
This very well-made gas griddle boasts a whopping 260-inch cooking area, 12,000-BTU power output, an H-shaped burner for even cooking, and weighs in at a reasonably portable 21 pounds.

The Blackstone Portable Gas Griddle is an extremely well-made griddle-style portable grill that ticks just about every box that needs ticking for lovers of griddle-cooked eats.

This grill is made with a powder coated stainless steel frame and an H-shaped stainless steel burner that ensure even cooking across the 260-square-inch, cold-rolled steel cooking surface. It also boasts an impressive power output of 12,000 BTUs and adjustable temperature regulation, thereby offering far more power and versatility than most other gas-powered griddles in its price range.

Measuring just 18 by 16 inches and weighing 21 pounds, the Blackstone is also fairly easy to transport from A to B, and its streamline design means it can be stood on end and slid into a tight space in your vehicle or transported to and from your campsite under your arm.

What we love most about this griddle-style grill, though, is just how convenient and easy to use it is. It boasts an electronic, push-button ignition that saves you fussing around with matches, a built-in grease catcher to save you post-cook cleanup time, and its heavy-duty steel cooking surface can be wiped clean in seconds with a paper towel alone.

The bottom line? A highly efficient, easy-to-use unit that offers great value for money and is capable of cooking up large quantities of food in a very short time.

Blackstone Portable Gas Griddle Key Features:

  • 12,000 BTUs
  • 260-square-inch cooking surface
  • Weighs 21 pounds
  • Built-in grease catcher
  • Rolled stainless steel surface wipes clean easily
  • H-shaped burner for even cooking

Best Budget Portable Grill: Weber Smokey Joe Portable Gas Grill

Best Budget Portable Grill
Weber Smokey Joe Portable Gas Grill
This compact, lightweight, and very reasonably priced charcoal-burning grill boasts a 160-inch cooking surface, high-quality materials throughout, and is a great choice for those place simplicity and affordability high on their list of priorities.

The Weber Smokey Joe Portable Gas Grill is a great choice for campers looking to buy a grill that offers great value for money without compromising on build quality, durability, and practicality.

While this grill costs less than you’re likely to pay for the eats you’ll be cooking up inside of it, its made with similar materials to many models of grill that cost more than twice as much. These materials consist of a rust-proof, porcelain-enameled lid and bowl that offers far better heat retention than the aluminum used in many competitor grills, a plated steel cooking grate, rust-resistant aluminum dampers, a trio of sturdy aluminum legs, and an aluminum ash catcher.

With a 160-square-inch cooking surface, the Smokey Joe is the perfect size for a family of four, holding up to 8 quarter-pound burgers at a time. It also weighs a reasonably lightweight 9.5 pounds and measures just 14 inches across by 17 inches high, meaning it’s high enough off the ground to avoid burning your tabletop (or grass if grilling on the ground) but small enough to be carried comfortably between your vehicle and campsite. The Smokey Joe also boasts a series of air vents that ensure your charcoal is provided with enough airflow to keep burning throughout your cook and uses aluminum dampers to provide reasonably effective temperature regulation.

The only notable drawback to this grill is found in the configuration of the legs—had they been foldable, the unit would have scored even higher in terms of portability. That said, this is a fairly negligible shortcoming and only likely to present a problem if you’re very short on storage space.

Weber Smokey Joe Portable Gas Grill Key Features:

  • 160-square-inch cooking surface
  • 17-inch grill height ideal for cooking from a camping chair or stool
  • Dampers provide a degree of temperature control
  • Porcelain-enameled lid and bowl
  • Weighs 9.5 lbs.
  • 10-year warranty

Best Portable Propane Grill: Cuisinart Petit Gourmet Portable Gas Grill

Best Portable Propane Grill
Cuisinart Petit Gourmet Portable Gas Grill
This stylish and superbly efficient little grill can cook enough for a family of four in one go and is perhaps the most portable, compact, and convenient tabletop grill on the market.

The Cuisinart Petit Gourmet Portable Gas Grill is a highly efficient, easy to use propane-powered grill that is relatively low-cost but offers performance on a par with many of its far pricier competitors.

With a cooking surface of 145 square inches, this isn’t the biggest propane grill out there, granted, but has enough room for around 8 burgers or steaks, 6 to 10 chicken breasts, or 4 pounds of fish on the grate. That smaller grilling area, together with the unit’s enclosed hood and its relatively low-output burner, moreover, make it far more fuel-efficient than most other models of propane-burning grill.

This grill also boasts a handful of very handy features that make it both very easy to use and allow for more precise, dialled-in grilling. The most important of these include an adjustable temperature control feature that lets you cook different foods at different heats, an integrated lid lock that keeps the lid shut during transportation, a porcelain-enameled grate, and a spill-resistant drip tray that makes post-cook cleaning a piece of cake. In terms of convenience and user-friendliness, you couldn’t ask for a whole lot more…

In terms of portability, the Petit Gourmet is a bit of a winner, too, weighing in at just 13.5 pounds, using folding legs that simplify transportation and let you squeeze it into tight storage spaces in your vehicle or at home, and a robust, briefcase-style handle that lets you carry the grill from A to B with ease.

Cuisinart Petit Gourmet Portable Gas Grill Key Features: 

  • 5,500-BTU burner
  • 145-square-inch cooking surface
  • Adjustable temperature control
  • Available in 3 colors
  • Folding legs for easy transportation
  • Weighs 13.5 lbs.

Best Portable Charcoal Grill: Weber Jumbo Joe Charcoal Grill

Best Portable Charcoal Grill
Weber Jumbo Joe Charcoal Grill
This 18-inch grill combines grilling a area large enough to feed a small army in a few rounds of cooking with a handful of features that vastly enhance its convenience compared to other charcoal-burning models in its price range.

The Weber Jumbo Joe Charcoal Grill is a great choice of grill for those doing their camping in larger groups and who want to enjoy the flavor of charcoal-grilled eats without paying over the odds.

This larger cousin of the Weber Portable Charcoal Grill feature above boasts a whopping 250-square-inch cooking surface that makes it capable of cooking up a hearty feast for all the family and even a few friends or campsite neighbors in one go. And despite the unit’s sizeable dimensions, it remains easily portable owing to its use of a “Tuck-N-Carry” lid lock that keeps the lid in place while you’re on the move and a robust carry handle that uses a heat-shield grip to let you transport the grill from your campsite to your vehicle shortly after cooking.

What we love most about this grill is that it’s made with the type of hard-wearing, durable materials and overall quality of build typically only found on far more expensive units, using a porcelain-enameled bowl and lid that retain heat and are also highly resistant to rust and corrosion, a heavy-gauge steel charcoal grate, a plated steel cooking grate, and sturdy aluminum legs that provide a stable cooking platform no matter how much grub you manage to squeeze on the grill!

Other nice features included in this grill are aluminum dampers that let you control your cooking temperature, a kettle-style design that keeps in heat and improves fuel efficiency, and a removable aluminum ash catcher that makes cleaning up after dinner easy and reduces the risk of doing any inadvertent grilling of your picnic table or campsite while keeping an eye on the progress of your eats!

Weber Jumbo Joe Charcoal Grill Key Features:

  • 250-square-inch cooking surface
  • Weighs 18 lbs.
  • Lick lock facilitates transportation
  • Sturdy aluminum legs
  • Dampers provide a degree of temperature control
  • Porcelain-enameled lid and bowl
  • 10-year warranty

Who Should Buy a Portable Grill

Portable grills offer a great way for food lovers to get their fill of tasty eats while out on their adventures—whether you’re on a car-camping trip, staying at established campsites, RVing, boating, or just heading on a vacation where space in your vehicle is at a premium but flavorful fodder remains a must.

The greatest benefit of choosing a portable grill over a standard grill is that portable units can, as the name suggests, be taken just about anywhere. While standard grills require an electric power or gas outlet—and, as such, can only be used in the immediate vicinity of your home, RV, or a campsite hookup—portable models (for the most part) run on propane gas or charcoal, meaning they can be taken as far as you’re willing or able to carry them and thus offer far more freedom as regards where you do your camping and backcountry dining.

Important Features to Consider

A portable grill should do several things well. Here’s what to consider when selecting a portable grill for your culinary adventures in the outdoors:

  • Portability. One of the main reasons for buying a portable grill is the ability to take it with you on the road or on your camping trips. As such, the size and weight of the unit is a crucial factor when choosing between models. If you plan on car camping or staying in established campsites, then a larger, heavier model of grill is an option and will provide a greater grilling capacity, thereby making it easier to cook more food in shorter time periods. If, however, you’re planning on taking the grill on camping trips where you’ll have to carry it any distance before setting up camp, then a smaller, lighter model is the way to go. Just how small and light will depend on how much other kit you’re carrying and how strong your calves are (!), but any model in excess of ten pounds (bearing in mind you’ll also have to carry fuel) is likely to turn your hike to camp into a bit of an ordeal.
  • Fuel type. The most common types of fuel used in portable grills for camping are charcoal and propane gas. Both of these fuels have the advantage of being portable and can be used anywhere, as long as open flames are permitted where you plan on doing your grilling. If you are staying at an established campsite with electric hookups or are traveling with your RV, then an electric grill becomes an option. Electric grills save you from having to carry fuel but, of course, limit you to doing you cooking in the immediate vicinity of a power outlet.
  • Power output. The power output of any grill determines the amount of heat it is capable of producing and is measured in BTUs (British Thermal Units). In short, the higher the number of BTUs, the more heat the grill will produce. However, a higher BTU number doesn’t necessarily translate to better cooking—models with a higher output in BTUs will also burn more fuel and may not necessarily provide a consistent, even cook. Most portable grills offer BTU outputs ranging from around 2,000 BTUs to 12,000 BTUs. How many BTUs you’ll require will depend on the size of the cooking surface on your grill, with smaller models requiring less output than models with large cooking surfaces. As a general rule, we’d recommend models with an output from 4,000 to 8,000 for smaller grills (with a cooking area of 80 to 160 square inches) and from 8,000 to 12,000 for larger grills (with a cooking area above 160 square inches).
  • Cooking capacity. In addition to your grill’s power output, the amount of food you can process is determined by the size of the cooking surface. The size of the cooking surface on portable grills varies from around 100 square inches up to around 300 square inches. Naturally, the more food you need to cook, the more convenient a larger cooking area will be. As such, solo campers or couples can cut down on fuel and find a more portable unit by choosing a grill with a smaller cooking surface (from around 100-150 square inches) but families or larger groups will be better served and can cut waiting times by opting for a model with 180 square inches of cooking surface or more. To give you an idea of how much grub you cook on different surfaces areas, a 150-square-inch cooking surface can accommodate roughly 8 burgers or steaks, 6 to 10 chicken breasts, or 4 pounds of fish.
  • Tabletop or standing. Portable grills are available in two general configurations, those without legs that are designed for use on top of a table (tabletop) or those that have folding legs and are self-supporting. Tabletop units are typically more portable owing to their lack of bulky legs that add to their overall dimensions. However, if camping in a location without any benches or tables on which you can place the unit, using a “legless” model means you’ll have to get down on the ground to do your cooking. While this isn’t likely to put off all users, it could well be a dealbreaker for those who place convenience high on their list of priorities and would prefer to do their grilling while standing as opposed to squatted down on their haunches!
  • Temperature control. This feature determines the level of performance offered by any grill more than any other.  Most high-performing grills have adjustable temperature dials that allow you to choose between high, medium, and low heat output. However, while this feature allows you to be more precise with your cooking and grill different food types at appropriate temperatures, it also usually adds to the price of the unit.
  • Convenience. A few added features can go a long way to enhancing any grill’s convenience for the user. The most notable of these are side tables on which you can keep cooking utensils or plates, a removable grill grate and removable drip tray to facilitate cleaning, a lid to prevent wind interfering with your flame, a lid-lock to keep the lid in place during transportation, and robust carry handles. While not essential to a good cook, each of these “bonus” features are very handy additions that can make your grilling sessions all the more enjoyable and add to your grill’s overall practicality and user-friendliness.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a portable grill and how does it work?

As the name suggests, portable grills are a type of barbecue grill distinguished by their ability to be transported easily. These grills can take a variety of forms and use different types of fuel, with the most common being propane and charcoal. Most models use an aluminum or stainless steel frame or body in combination with a stainless steel or porcelain-enameled cooking surface, below which the unit’s fuel is burnt to provide the heat that cooks your food. To enhance portability, the vast majority of models of portable grill are far lighter than standard yard grills and also use a few features that facilitate transportation, usually foldable legs, robust carry handles, and lid latches that keep the lid in place while you’re on the move.

Are natural gas grills better than propane?

The decision over whether to buy a propane or natural gas grill will ultimately come down to where and how you plan on using the grill.

Natural gas fuels your grill through a gas line, meaning you’ll have to pay professional to instal or extend the gas supply to your grill and, of course, that you won’t be able to move the grill from this location after installation. While natural gas grills are cheaper to run, more environmentally friendly, and have the added convenience of not requiring refills, if your reason for buying a portable stove is portability as opposed to space savings in your yard or on your patio or deck, then a propane grill (or charcoal grill) is the only way to go.

Propane grills run on detachable tanks that can be transported with you pretty much anywhere (as long as getting to that anywhere doesn’t involve flying!), thereby placing them top of the list of grill types for portability. Propane grills also offer more powerful output than natural gas grills, (2500 BTUs to 1000 BTUs), meaning you can cook at higher temperatures and prepare larger quantities of food in shorter time periods.

How much does a portable grill cost? 

The cost of portable grills varies greatly, with some budget charcoal-burning models with a lower capacity, lack of temperature regulation, and less features costing less than the eats you’ll be cooking in them (as little as $20) and more advanced, propane-burning units with precise temperature dials, high-power output, and plenty of features as much as $250.

As a general rule, the cheapest grills are bare-bones charcoal-burning models that consist of little more than a frame and grill grate. Pricier grills are usually propane-burning units that include precise temperature regulation, built-in thermometers, porcelain-enameled grates, dual burners, and higher BTU output.

Can you use a portable grill indoors?

The short answer to this question is an unequivocal no.

The slightly longer answer goes as follows:

Neither gas (propane or natural) grills or charcoal grills are suitable for indoor use because the lack of ventilation in enclosed spaces can cause a potentially fatal buildup of carbon monoxide. Additionally, the exterior of portable grills can heat up significantly more than standard ovens, thereby creating a fire hazard if they happen to topple over or come into contact with other furnishings. Finally, leaks from propane tanks are not uncommon and if cooking indoors even a small leak from a faulty valve could be deadly.
