Hi all I'm in the market for a good compact grill for overlanding. I like my camp stove but I also want to grill food, and don't always have a fire I can use for that purpose. Any recommendations are appreciated!

Thanks for the replies! I have the Q at the top of my list it's just a little bulky, I was hoping there was something decent that was maybe less bulbous but everyone seems to love it. I'm normally a charcoal guy but I live in the forest on the west coast, and that means frequent burn bans so I gotta stick to propane.

I like my O-grill. There area couple of different versions. I found an older style larger one that has been discontinued. Legs fold up and it can store vertically.


Mine is similar to this one: TravelQ 2225 - TQ2225PO | Napoleon

Just got a Traeger Scout. It runs on 12 volt and 110. Have the big one at home and love it. Haven't tried the Scout yet. Hope to soon.

I bought a UCO Flatpack Portable Grill and am loving it. Cooks a mean steak. The best results I've had is with plain old scavenged wood from the forest.

I have a Weber Q I bought used on Letgo. It's been good. I want to buy a pizza stone and try making some pizzas up in the mountains

Interesting concept of a folding grill (and thanks for making my hungry with the killer steak picture).

Thanks all for the input, I really appreciate it. I am limited to gas as this will be used when the national forests in my area put up a burn ban, which is usually mid July.

I like my O-grill. There area couple of different versions. I found an older style larger one that has been discontinued. Legs fold up and it can store vertically.

Ooh I'm really liking this one, wish I could find it for under $200!

Wife made pizza on ours last weekend, first time cooking on it. Don’t think she used a pizza stone though, maybe a griddle? Id have to ask her as I wasn’t around at the time. Turned out excellent though.

I use a Skottle. Easy to store, set and cook on. Have not found anything you can’t make on it.IMG_0515.JPG
This picture is chicken fajitas on the deck. It has a carriage case for the cooking disk and one for the legs. Clean up is a breeze also.

You can find weber and Coleman camping/portable grills/propane stoves about anywhere for pretty cheap. Growing up my dad bought the cheapest Coleman propane stove available at Walmart, it still works today and I'm gonna buy it off him to use with my family when we camp.

I ran with the Cabela's portable table top grill when I went to Yellowstone last year. It was great, fit on the roof rack perfectly, but the only problem was the grease would drip onto the truck during hot days. I conveniently had a used a beer box to help contain the grease but I still didn't like that clean up. So for now I'm sticking with a Coleman Gladiator series propane stove but I'm thinking about a grill basket that goes over a fire when there are no fire restrictions/bans.
