Portable Grills

Whether you're surrounded by sunshine and green grass or snowflakes and sleet, a true griller knows that if you're barbecuing, you've found the spirit of summertime. Bring that spirit along with you wherever you go with a high-powered portable grill. These machines were built for backwoods hiking, tailgating with friends, and good old-fashioned barbecue dinners. Whatever you like to cook up in the great outdoors, make sure your portable grill is as high-functioning and versatile as you need it to be.

Portable Grills, Designed for your Needs: Size Matters

Some things are inherent to large, stationary grills. For one, they're going to have a large grilling area that can handle multiple foods at once. That's not going to be the case with all portable grills, but that doesn't mean you can't cook great eats fast. It does mean a wise griller should consider exactly what they want out of their new appliance. Are you part of a large family that loves to go on annual camping trips? Or do you and a sweetheart go on tailgate dates with just the two of you? Couples and low-pressure grillers might be able to get away with a small movable grill that has a surface area of less than 200 square inches. These are great for grilling one or two burgers at a time, and their small size means they're easy to bring along to all kinds of places. But if you've got a lot of mouths to feed, consider going up a size. And remember not to overcrowd your grill's surface. While you may be able to "physically" fit that many burger patties all at once, it's probably not the best idea. Overcrowding leads to undercooked foods that tend to lack flavor.

Portable Fuels: Grilling with Gas...or Electric?

When it comes to grilling, everyone's got their favorite choice of fuel. Some have fallen madly in love with the wood pellet grill, while others stick to the smoky goodness of classic charcoal. Fortunately, when it comes to portable grills, there are two main kinds of popular grill fuels: electric and liquid propane. Each type has benefits, but some are best for certain lifestyles. Liquid propane grills are the ones you're likely more familiar with. These grills use the same type of fuel your parents (and grandparents) did for their family barbecues. And with propane sold at every corner store and gas station around, it's a convenient choice of fuel that heats up quickly. The major downside? When that last can of fuel runs out, you're out of luck. Plus, liquid propane can be more expensive than electricity. Meanwhile, electric grills are convenient, but often derided for a lack of "smokiness" when it comes to flavor. These next-gen cookers punch back with the one thing no other grill can say: there's no flame involved. That means you can use your portable grill nearly anywhere, even inside. And with no refuse at all from charred remains, cleanup is always a breeze. The main downside here? Not all campsites or tailgate hotspots have an electrical outlet (though many do, you'd be surprised).
