    Grill Purchase

    Hey I'm looking for a portable grill to put on my apartments porch. I had a gas one that used the small green propane tanks that worked pretty well, but I really like the charcoal flavor better. I went to walmart and I saw some small portable grills for about $30.

    Anybody have any advice?

    Re: Grill Purchase

    If your apartment porch is on the ground/cement I'd consider charcoal. If it's a deck then I'd stick with gas for safety reasons. Anyway Weber is always a good way to go for either charcoal or gas. We have the small Weber gas(Q200) for tailgating and camping it works great. The little Weber charcoal grills are good too. You pay a little more but they typically last longer.

    Shop Weber LP Gas Tabletop Grill at Lowes.com
    The wife and I just picked up this one from Lowes. We already have a big gas grill, but it's more than we need when I'm cooking for just the two of us. Got this as an alternative for home use, as well as something we can take tailgating. We also picked up the portable grill stand that goes with it. Love it so far

    Better check with your landlord first. Most apartments only allow gas grills if any du to liability of leaving the hot coals unattended.

    That is a city wide ordinance that grills are not allowed on Apartment decks unless it is ground floor. That said I had one for a year in a apartment and never got in trouble as have others I have known.

    But if you burn down a apartment complex you will be held completely liable.

    Ya I was thinking the charcoal would definitely be illegal, but gas grills with tanks a certain size or smaller are legal. That's what I would probably get.

    Thanks for all the advice so far.

    Re: Grill Purchase

    I have one of these that I've been pretty happy with. The wheels make it handy to move around and it folds down nicely. You can also get the portable case that will let you stand it up in the corner and forget about it until you want to use it again.

    I bought a Blue Rhino portable gas grill at Lowes that I use for tailgating and I have no complaints.
