Guide Review - Weber Propane Gas Go Anywhere Portable Grill Model# 1520
As far as basic goes, this is about as simple a gas grill as you can make. The single, straight, tubular burner pumps out 10,000 BTUs from a disposable 1-pound propane bottle. The porcelain enameled "flavorizer" heat tent spreads out the heat under the lightweight steel wire cooking grate. Yes, not sophisticated, and at around $70USD this isn't the cheapest portable on the market, but it is reliable (almost) and durable. If you are a heavy griller who likes to hit the road you will be happy to buy another on of these in 5 years or so.
Okay, I said almost above. The ignitor is a basic push button piezoelectric unit that can fail after time, leaving you to use a match to light the burner. Not a problem if you are not expecting perfection.
This is a perfect little portable for tailgating or the college kid who wants a grill.
