This is what I have been using for the last 2 few years camping.
https://www.traegergrills.com/shop/g...g-pellet-grill
this thing works just like the bigger pellet grills but is easy to carry around. Has a carrying cover with handles. Stores nice in the pass through storage and will smoke your meat or you can grill a steak at 500 degrees. I use a plastic 4 foot table from costco and have not had any heat issues with melting. Amazing little unit

Couldn't agree with you more Russell about the Treager,Fantastic little unit and they have a great warranty, I carry the pellets in a 5gal bucket and works great.

Chris P.. if you have a newer traeger (2012 models and newer) if you look at the controller, to the left of the digital temp read out you will see a small little black rubber plug. if you pull that out and have a paper clip you insert the paper clip end into that hole and there is a small button inside there. If your ever smoking jerky or salmon or a brisket you are going to want to change what they call the P setting in the winter. the traegers come stock at p-2. in the winter time (anything below 50 degrees) i will change it to P-0 which is turning the auger on every 45seconds vs the stock setting at every 65 seconds. dont know if you ever use your traeger for smoking meats but i do and they always come out amazing..

2200 Update

Not wanting to wear this out but I'm thinking the Q series may just not meet my expectations. Did a ribeye a couple of days ago and seemed the 2200 was going to be OK. Tried hamburgers tonite (4 med/large patties). It seems like the Q is more of a "slow cooker" of meats instead of a "grill". I did get the burgers off in about 20 minutes but that just isn't right for a grill. I have lots of grills of various kinds but 20 minutes to cook a 1/3-1/2 lb. pattie is just not right. It won't get over 400 and if you open the lid it hits 150 then takes 5+ minutes to get back to 400.

Don't know that there is a need for response. I just wanted to make the update. I had great hopes for a new "Weber Q grill". I am greatly disappointed. It doesn't have flare ups, but I guess you wouldn't if it never gets to "grilling" temps. I will give it one more shot whenever I have time to mess with it. Looks to me like this is a $400+ mistake (cart + accessories) that I need to give to someone that has more patience, or does not have the expectations, that I have.

Sounds like you really should step up to the pellet grill,No more fussing with propane or trying to drill out orifices which was scary to here.

Looked at the video of the Traeger pellet grill (camping). I'm not sure that it is a great "grill" for steaks etc. Smoker? Probably. Getting hot grill marks on a steak or burger and turning them out in a timely manner? I'm afraid it would be just like the Q I just bought - a slow cooker.
