If you answered yes to any of those then a portable barbecue grill might be just what you’re looking for. Here are the 3 biggest advantages portable barbecue grills have over traditional grills:
1) Portable grills are portable
Perhaps the biggest advantage that portable barbecue grills have over traditional grills is that they are portable. Traditional grills are typically very large, heavy, and hard to move, but most portable grills are designed to be less than 20 pounds, and are easily folded up for efficient packing.
A typical grill like the Weber 1520 or the Blue Rhino GBT1030 measure less than 30” long and 17” wide, and they are convenient shapes to make packing easier as well. A grill like the Weber Q200 may be a little pricier than some of the other grills, but it comes jam-packed with features and is easily one of the best quality portable BBQ grills available.
2) Great for smaller groups or the individual
One of the big problems with traditional grills is that if you’re only cooking for one person you waste a lot of heat, and gas on the unused parts of the cooking plate. This is another advantage of having a portable barbecue grill.
Because Portable grills are designed to be moved around they are a lot smaller and the cooking surfaces are perfect for 2-3 people. They are also designed to be very efficient in the way they use the propane or coal so you won’t need to worry about wasting anything on a portable grill either.
If you’re looking for a very efficient portable BBQ grill for that small family picnic or camping trip then I recommend having a look at the Blue Rhino GBT1030 which has a moderate cooking space, is easily portable and can cook for up to 3-5 people.
3) They’re affordable
The last advantage portable BBQ grills have over traditional grills is that they are easily affordable. You can easily pick up a great small gas or charcoal grill for under $50 that will last year for many years to come.
Traditional grills are usually very expensive and prices can range from anywhere between $500 and a couple of thousand dollars. Portable BBQ grills though can cost as low as $50 for a high quality long lasting product.
If you want a Portable barbeque grill that’s low on price and really high quality then you can’t beat the Weber 1520 or Go-Anywhere charcoal grill. Both of these grills are really low on price and are the best value grills you can find.
Overall portable gas grills have a number of big advantages over traditional grills like price, and portability, but it would be impossible to cater for large groups on the smaller grills which is where the traditional grills win out. If you plan on camping, tailgating, or only cooking for two then I highly recommend picking up a portable grill.
