we char-coled for the first half of the season. it was good, but a pain. it was always raining, and always a mess to clean up. took time to just make burgers, and i have two kids 2-4, need i say more. we searched for a few months and finally i got sick of it and bought a colmen compact one. it works well, BUT... it does not have a stand and the propane bottles hang off it, so you almost have to have it on a table or something to use it. other pain is the lighter for it almost never works, so i got to use my long gas hand held one. not overly crazy about it, but we could never settle on one. so now i know that i prefer gas over the coal. just a matter of finding the right one.

Thanks for all the responses, and helping me spend more money

I did a quick seach and found the local Lowes had the Weber Q 120 for $179 and the Weber rolling foldable cart for $49

I want the bbq to be on its own cart or table. THe DW and I decided to wait and look around.

We then went to CW to pick up a few more things. THey had the Q 100 but I think I like the 120 better. THose two little fold out shelves are worth the extra money. CW did have the foldable cart for $39 so we got that. I'll do a little searching to see if I can find a better deal on the Q120. If not I will just get it at Lowes.


Thanks for the input. It went to good use.


Jerry

I definitely need to get the folding cart for my Q120. I don’t like cooking on the ground, and most parks don’t want you putting your grill on their picnic tables, which I’ve been *carefully* doing and feeling guilty about.

Exactly why I got the cart. We have a plastic type table from Costco but I didn't want to put the bbq on it.

I checked the bbq cart and it will fit on the bike rack that hangs off the ladder This saves me from having to put it in the trailer.

The bbq and propane bottles will go into a rubbermaid type container. This is easily stored in the trailer.

Rather than using the smaller, 1lb propane bottles, you might want to consider using the propane connect/disconnect outlet which is probably already on your 5th (located under the curb side front corner) OR a 20 lb propane tank. Both will require a hose with the proper fittings on it. Using one of these two propane supplies, will be far cheaper in the long run.

I've enjoyed my Coleman RoadTrip for many years, through two motor homes, now my 5er, been good to me.

THe Q120 at Lowes comes with the propane hose. I looked for the connection under my 5th but didnt see one. Guess I better look again.

My Cougar did not come with a quick connect so I use a Stay-Flow adapter with a 12' hose off my curb side 30lb. bottle. It saves a lot of money and aggravation of little bottles running empty.
