Don't let the portability of this grill fool you. It cooks big and for many people at one time.
It take either the green camping propane bottles or hook it up to a 20 lb tank with the adapter hose (Recommended). The cool thing is if your big tank runs out without warning you can cook 2 or 3 meals with the camping Coleman propane until you get it filled.
Temperature control is great. You can get it real hot for searing steaks or low to roast whole chickens.
I don't know why anyone would buy a cheap import grill when you can have a weber Q 200 that will cook the same amont of food and have complete portability. This is a great little grill.
