Hey Jeff,

I have one and find it to be a pain in the ass. It's a bit fiddly to put together.

I have one of these that I like much better > http://www.wildernessdining.com/cg8770.html
It's cheaper, lighter, simpler to erect and fits easily into the top of my Jessie case lid.

I also snagged one of these off eBay to try this year > http://www.arctic-fox.com/sitepages/pid69.php

and , does anyone know where to buy them ? I have looked on their web site and the three listed retailers don't show them on their web sites.

Also does it come with a carry bag/sock ?

The Coleman Pack Grill is easy to understand.

Could you post a couple pictures of the EZ Roll Up Grill ?

My wife has a few of these in the kitchen to cool off her muffins. [Yes, you heard that right]

They look cheap and would prolly burn and rust in time, but they can't cost but a few bucks.

The grilling baskets frtom Rome are something else I want to try. Although prolly not as packable.

i carry a small and cheap basket grill i got in chinatown for $3.50, cut the handles short and use the handle of my Sven saw to hold the grill. also use the saw to prop my bike up for lubing the chain and fixing flats.

It is fiddly but no issue really, a few seconds thought. I got mine on ebay out of the uk. Doesn't come with a bag, it all fits into one of the tubes, size listed below.

Mini dimensions: Length: 29 cm
Diameter: 2.2 cm
Weight: 560 g
Barbecue area: 23 cm x 26 cm
Material: stainless steel

It's where I got mine. Don't know if they still carry them or not.

For a camp grill I use one of these. Works great and I love things that have multi purpose. Allows you to cut the wood needed for fire then cook your steak! Fits nicely in a tool tube.

Camping

I carry a small one person back packing tent ~ 3 pounds a small backpacking bag mummy rated to 30 degrees ~ 2 pounds a Sterno stove a pot 3 liters of water and mountain house freeze dried food. Maps compass GPS and spot device. Extra fuel the TW only has 1.8 gal or about 100 mile range. I just did a 3 day 2 night trip in the woods and it was great.

For those who use the little grills (Grillaput, the Coleman, etc.), have you ever cooked sausages/hot dogs on the grill? Have you had issues with things rolling off? Maybe I'm just a klutz but I like having sides.

This is the grill I use and I like it a lot (I usually use it over a fire, not with charcoal) and it works great. But it's big. I'm always looking for a smaller option.

This is a nice grill but waaaaaaaaay to big for light weight packing. Goldwing with a trailer

I bring it on a DRZ...it helps that I ride my own my bike when I camp with my boyfriend. It's really not that big as we only bring the grill and the pole (no charcoal section). If you're riding with a bunch of people, it helps to split things up across bikes. I do most of the dinner cooking over the fire.

But I'm always looking for something smaller. Any thoughts from those who use the little bitty grills? I can just see the sausages rolling into the pit of hell.
