Have you ever wanted to take the BBQ camping but haven’t had enough room in the car, or are you sick of only using one quarter of the room on your grill and wasting gas?
If you answered in the affirmative to any of those then a portable barbecue grill might be just what you’re looking for. Here are the top advantages portable barbecue grills have over traditional grills:
1) Portable grills are portable:
Perhaps the biggest advantage that portable barbecue grills have versus traditional grills is that they can be moved around. Traditional grills are usually very big, cumbersome, and hard to move, but most portable grills should be less than thirty pounds, and are easily folded up for efficient moving.
A typical grill like the Weber 1520 or the Blue Rhino GBT1030 are less than 30” long and 17” wide, plus they are easy shapes to make moving a cinch as well. A grill like the Weber Q200 may be a little pricier than some of the other grills, but it comes standard with features plus it’s one of the best reviewed portable BBQ grills that can be bought. A good way to compare prices is to read a Weber 1520 review.
2) Ideal for smaller groups or the individual
One of the major issues with traditional grills is that if you’re only cooking for one person you draw a lot of unused energy, and you also waste gas on the on the empty part. This is a second benefit of having a portable barbecue grill.
Because portable grills are designed to be moved around they are quite a bit smaller and the cooking surfaces are perfect for a small party. They are also designed to preserve fuel in the way they use the gas or coals so you don’t need to think about wasting anything on these types of grills.
Noted grilling expert Richard Sendapot often uses the Weber Q200 which has a moderate cooking space, is easy to move and can make food for a small group.
3) They are less expensive
The last advantage portable BBQ grills have over larger grills is that they are less pricey. You can easily pick up a great small gas or charcoal grill for under a hundred dollars that will last year for a long time. Look around and read a Weber Q220 grill review in order to find the best barbecue.
Overall portable gas grills have a number of advantages that set them apart over traditional grills like their low cost and portability. The only drawback is it would be impossible to cater for large groups on the smaller grills. If you are going camping, tailgating, or cooking for under five people then I highly recommend picking up a portable grill.
