I don’t believe that there’s a better meal on earth than one that’s been cooked over a flame. The smell of smoke and meat searing creates a dinner bell more alluring than any other.
If you’ve spent any amount of time in a public campground, you’re familiar with the rusty, dirty, permanent grate grills that have become a cooking staple there. If you’re on board with the idea of quality cooking outdoors (and why wouldn’t you be?!?), we suggest bringing along a portable grill of your own. Each of the grills that we highlight here are lightweight, portable, and can all run on a small, 1lb propane tank. Now, that’s portability well done!
Zippo: All Terrain Grill
If the ability to go anywhere, and truly cook like you would in the backyard is important to you – the Zippo All Terrain Grill is your ticket. A unique scissor design allows for easy setup, and even easier transportation. Combined with rugged wheels designed to venture off road and robust temperature controls –you’ve got a package that’ll make any camping chef jealous.
This lightweight, single-handed carry grill allows you to setup shop wherever and whenever you’d like. Two separate cooking surfaces allow for easy temperature control, and the electronic ignition makes starting the grill as simple as pushing a button. When it’s time for clean up, the grates remove easily – and the burners flip up, giving you access to even the dirtiest of corners.
Camp Chef: Big Gas Grill
If you’re planning on grilling near the campsite or vehicle, Camp Chef’s Big Gas Grill provides a folding solution that’ll allow you to turn your outdoor space into a full-blown kitchen. The grill features fully adjustable heat controls, and a combined output of 90,000 BTU. At home, the campsite and the tailgate, the Big Gas Grill can be used on its own – add the Grill Box accessories for more versatility.
