Wood & Charcoal Burning Fire Pit

This pick’s unique function makes it a great choice for camping. The handles are large enough to carry it easily and the legs can be folded up for easy transport. You can use it with charcoal or firewood. Simply slide the included grill grate on to make it a grill. You can see the flames from the sides of the firepit. The fan is controlled via an app and allows you to adjust the size of the flames.

Our tests showed that steak was cooked perfectly and had nice grill marks. The coal bed can be adjusted to achieve better temperature control, which is a very important feature in charcoal grill testing. Although the grill grate is smaller than other portable grills, it can hold approximately four to five chicken legs side-by-side or two large steaks. The brand’s grilling accessories are also available separately. We found them to be useful and of good quality.

PKGO Camp & Tailgate Grilling System

This charcoal grill portable is a reliable workhorse. Cast aluminum and cast iron grates make this grill heavy but well worth it.

The lid is a great choice. It has two vents that keep the heat at bay during cooking. It also stays in place on the grill in an open position. There’s even a large handle to make it easy to check in. The best part is that the lid can be turned onto a base included and used as an additional grill. The grill also comes with a second charcoal holder and a cooking grate. The grill cooked four chicken thighs and a steak in just a few minutes.

Traveler Portable Gas Grill

The cart’s grill is integrated into it so that it can be used as one solid piece. It has thick bars, stable feet and large wheels that can roll on grass. Even after being outside for a year, the igniter turned it on in a single touch. We recommend covering your grill to prolong its life and prevent it from rusting.

It reached 600oF in 10 minutes during our tests. It cooked great steaks quickly and well-browned chicken thighs in less than 20 minutes. There were no flareups. The grease drips into a disposable drip tray, making cleanup simple. Cast iron grates, lid, and cook box are all porcelain enameled for nonstickiness, easy cleanup, and heat retention.

The side shelf and the tool holders on the grill’s front proved useful in our testing. The one-pound propane tank was easily attached beneath the shelf. Weber claims the grill was designed to maximize gas consumption. We didn’t test it but did notice that it lasted much longer than other portable grills.
