This is a pretty good deal. I have and use this grill while camping. I don't cook directly on the grates but typically heat a cast iron pan on the optional burner grate. I have cooked on the grates and its ok. you can minimize the mess by lining the bottom with foil to dispose of after use. I also have the optional skillet replacement. The grill isn't small so take that into consideration. We car camp so we take all kinds of stuff and don't worry about size. Also, the storage bag is a really good addition for this grill.

Can you tell me what type of fuel it uses? That was not obvious to me... Am looking for something compact that does not need electric.

Thank you,

It is propane; the small "screw-in" canisters.

For about $15-$20 you can get an adaptor hose at Lowes and convert it to the big bottles

Can anyone comment on the difference in performance between this model and the blue one? I believe this one is permanently attached to the frame, so you can't put it on a table or tailgate, and the frame looks a little less substantial, but with a little more portability. I had, and loved, the blue model which I kept in my horse trailer (with living quarters). Loaned daughter the trailer and she took it out and left it somewhere. I'm torn about replacing it, but tempting at this price if performance is comparable. I'm wondering if cooking surface closer to flame source, and if you can cook with top down. I think you can on later models--I did on blue one.
If you're debating: cleanup is a mess in wilderness area with tiny camper sink--have a plan. Or just wipe out and keep cooking and clean up at home. On a recent trip to Eminence, Mo. I purchased a "cowboy kitchen", a set of iron posts, horizontal rod, and various hooks and grates for cooking over wood fire. Love it! Wood fire not always an option, though, if drought conditions. So this would be a great fallback option.

This is one of the best items we have ever bought. We have ended up using this as our sole barbecue grill--it makes barbecueing quick and easy. My mother was visiting and was so impressed she went home and purchased one--living up north she found this an extremely convenient grill. She doesn't have to worry about it getting ruined on her deck during the winter months or having to depend on someone to move it for her. She can easily store it in her garage or basement and bring it out when she wants. Plus it uses the small propane canisters so she doesn't have to worry about hauling the big tank to get it refilled. If you want something that is convenient, easy to use and lasts for many seasons. Back to ours we have used our first one in Florida (year round use) for 10 years, purchased a second when we found it on sale--our first one came with griddle we are still using it with the second grill.

We never had the blue one but we have this model (red) for the last 8 years. Size and BTU are same between the blue one and this one. Thus performance should be similar. You already correctly identified the differences in frame stability and portability. Therefore, if you take the same precautions coooking with this one that you did cooking with the blue one you will have similar experience. We can close the lid but when we cook in low heat. If we close the lid, then we check every few minutes. We clean it very well after each use in order to avoid any residual that can create problems later on.

from he description:

The grill affixes to a standard 16.4-ounce disposable propane cylinder, or can be hooked up to a 20-pound tank with an additional accessory purchase.

It takes propane bottles. I would not consider it compact but it works well.

The Cuisinart you mentioned has almost 1/2 the btu's of the coleman grill and approx. half the cooking area in sq inches.

Billa, do you truly have nothing better to do than post gibberish on amazon, day-in and day-out?

Well, thanks for one thing ... you inspired me to finally take a minute to learn what the "ignore" button does. So long.

I have this same model, and have used used countless times for camping and tailgating. One of the best investments I have made. Really like that there are two grates, makes it easier to clean. I spray the inside with oven cleaner and wipe it down. Work out really well. Folds easily and doesn't take much room in my midsize suv. Just bought another for a gift! Great price!

Is it 36" with both side tables extended? My apt balcony is only 36". I wouldn't mind keeping one side down.

I recently purchased the similar Legacy model of this grill on sale and it was still more than double the price of this LXE model. The Legacy version does come with a few minor upgrades and includes the grill cover , but for the price of $99.99 - I would buy this LXE model that is on sale in a heartbeat.

Looks like a serious piece of junk; like one of those two-year lifespan disposable jobs. Just get a Weber and do it right. Webers last forever.
