So far, the only thing I found that it won't work well for is if you are grilling for a large party. But if were any larger, it wouldn't be as portable. So it's a trade-off.
I read one claim where a full meal can be cooked on a Volcano II stove with only 15 briquettes. Guess what? It worked! With the oxygen control lever, you can control the heating intensity vs length of burn. I was able to cook a full 12" Dutch oven full of apple crisp with only 15 briquettes! Thanks to the retracting legs, you can set the stove on almost any surface while cooking. In my case, I set it up on one of my small folding tables you can buy at Wal-Mart or Target. I cooked the meal on the table without any problem or discoloration of the table itself. Setting up is simple - lift the unit by the handle and the legs come down. When you're done, simply wipe out the remaining ashes, then lift it by the base and the legs retract. Couldn't be easier.
This is not the type of stove you want to have when you're tailgating or inviting the neighborhood over to sample your steaks. The grill is way too small for something like that. However, when your family wants a steak, use the Volcano II. You can cook a couple of steaks at a time without any problem. This is a terrific, well-built, heavy duty stove that's well worth the money.
This little gem has blown me away with it's smart design. It collapses and expands, it has two levels for the charcoal with the upper being only inches away from the grill, it has great flow and consistent heat. My research showed it was popular with the prepper crowd and while I think of them as generally crazy they do know durable multifunctional gear. This thing rocks. The grill fits perfectly on the top so it doesn't slide - smart. It is very efficient with lump charcoal (don't use briquettes - yuck) and it's also proven to work great with wood as well.
My only regret is that I didn't buy the oven cover as well although I did buy the planchet/griddle which is fantastic. It does double duty as my new pizza stone in our home oven and once the cover shows up I'm going to try my hand at pizza while camping. It's capable of some very serious heat which really opens up the doors to what you can do. Another great benefit is that it stays cool under the grill (as least while using the upper coal tray) so it can be set on a table and not worry about ruining the surface. We cook pancakes, bacon, eggs and potatoes on the griddle and steaks and burgers on the grill and I like it so much more than my Weber that I've pretty much retired it save for when we're cooking for a larger group.
Perhaps the only downside is the size but I consider it a bonus. The surface is enough space to cook for four or five people which suits our family perfectly. We keep it in our RV now and use it to cook most all our meals while we travel. It's also doing the job at home when I need more heat than the Weber is capable of - unless I burn an entire bag of charcoal. I'm considering a second one just for cooking at home.
Unzip the bag, grab the handle bail and pop its ready, one more minute if you are using gas. I recommend buying the Volcano cookbook and technical manual as it explains the different ways to cook on the grill. I use this grill with my dutch ovens and it is real easy to regulate the heat. A 12" dutch oven fits inside perfectly. The stove collapses just as easy and makes a small package when packed inside the bag. This isn't some crap from Coleman company this is a serious piece of cooking machine. Another advantage to this grill is that you can cook on a plastic camp table, the bottom doesn't get hot at all.
Bottom line, if you have a need:
Its portable, lightweight, flexible and very well built.
Would buy it again in an instant and have recommended it to friends.
Buy the book and the mid level grill and you are all set
