The problem I have is with tailgate grills. I have a separate grill for tailgating and the wear and tear I put on it driving down the highway means I am replacing it every other year. Not sure if I am tying it down too tight or what (I do tend to strap it down very tightly) or if I should invest in a more sturdy grill. I'm afraid of a larger investment because I hate to put down a good chunk of change and still get like 15 games out of it. If I could be guaranteed a longer life I would invest, but ...... without that guarantee....
I usually precook everything at home for tailgating and heat it up on a coleman road trip grill because the main dishes I make take too much prep/cook time. I might do a lobster quiche for a 1pm game or smoked ribs for a late game and there is no way it can be done from start to finish in the parking lot. If you want longer life out of your grill, I'd go with a Weber as others have noted in this thread.

Spend the money and get the Weber. Best of both worlds my 18 year old Weber was won in a contest.

I have a Camp Chef portable grill for tailgating/camping and it was a great purchase.

I think I've had it for close to 20 years and it's a little different than the newer model pictured below but it's worth recommending for those that are looking for an upgrade.

You don't want to be carrying this thing very far, because it is quite heavy, but the legs fold up easily and it's worth the extra size because of the power it packs. There is a burner on the right that'll throw a column of flame 8 inches high and boil a large pot of water in short order, which is a huge luxury when camping.

I took it on a canoe trip with 20 people and they were amazed by the thing and borrowed it for future trips that I didn't go on. Again, not lightweight but it's worth the hassle because it gets the job done every time.

Mine has a hibachi style cast iron grate section on the left and I added a large stainless steel griddle which I use all the time.

I didn't know you can get them through Home Depot until now, but I can vouch that it's an extremely rugged product that still works after a ton of hard use.

You can buy a new one with a griddle and case for 331 bucks. Not cheap, but this thing is the Cadillac of portable grills and gets a five-star H73 guarantee.

I had one for years and I toasted it.



it was my fault as I changed the hose over to one with flow control and I would get all three tossing out those 8 inch flames!! I would cook pizza on that thing and had it up to 500 degrees so quick it was crazy.

I paid 1/2 price because the box was open and I wondered if anything was missing.

I would do two clam boils at once on it. Great investment

one of last time I used it.

That has been my tailgate grill for 8 years (the one in the picture). I got it with the cookbox. The thing has been a workhorse. The cookbox takes up 2 burners and the 3rd burner is free for pots of chili or anything else that needs to be heated up.

However, it needs to be retired after this past season. Rust has taken over and it's coming apart. Back in 2011, I had to order it online. I had no idea you can get them at Home Depot.

Mine is (was) below with the cooktop.

I don't know if the older style Camp Chef or Sport Grills were more bomb-proof than the newer ones, but even though mine has some rot on the bottom and the cast-iron grill it just refuses to die and still functions well. I don't know how you guys killed yours' off.

That thing has finished many a meal that my neighbors' inferior little grills couldn't handle.

I'm not aware of a better portable, although I'm sure there is one out there someplace.

One thing I don't have is a cookbox for it. I'm going to hunt one down, because that could be handy under arctic conditions. Thanks for the idea.

Speaking of arctic, it throws enough BTUs to function as a sort of space heater after the food is done, although it's better to have a unit designed for that purpose. I'm going to have to get one based on the playoff weather at Gillette last season.

The cookbox is definitely rotted. It's $140 to replace it. The burners are still great, but the frame is starting to break down. I'll probably give the stove a good checkup and just order a new cookbox if I think I can get a few more years out of it.. I'll decide in the next month or so.

I burnt mine out with the increased gas flow. It cooked the heat shield and the bottom of the cooker box. I used it every weekend from april 1st to end of the football season, either camping or tailgating. lots of miles on that grill.

I bought a Brinkmann Pro Series Charcoal Grill from Sams Club about 15 years ago. The steel is painted black, not stainless. I've sanded and repainted once with high temp paint, needs another paint job. The steel is much heavier than other grills I've seen and is has not rusted other than some surface rust here and there. I replaced the charcoal tray once (raises and lowers), need to do again. Also replaced the cast iron grates once. They are fine now. Will most likely have to fabricate a new tray because I can't find parts. Other than that it's been awesome.

I know I can't find anything as well made now, so it's worth it to keep her going.

I prefer not to cook on gas grills.

I ended up using my firepit yesterday with a rack, some charcoal briquets and a make shift grill on top. Food was excellent. I want to buy a charcoal grill now but my wife wants to have the convenience of cooking on the grill if I'm not there (not sure why I wouldn't be there )

Anyway, I'm reaching out to the Planet for suggestions.

Thanks in advance.
I'd be sleeping with one eye open there amigo...just sayin'

Blackstone Griddles/Grills aren't bad...you have to make a grease collector for them though. Not hard to do though if you/re handy. Many of them have wheels.
