Guide Review - Weber Propane Gas Go Anywhere Portable Grill Model# 1141001
In recent years a lot of portable gas grills have hit the market. Many of these offer a wide range of options, heavy cast aluminum bodies, and an emphasis on appearance. This little metal box, on the other hand, is simple, lightweight and easy to use.
It might not look attractive but for years, this has been one of the most popular and dependable portable gas grills on the market. It isn't fancy and it won't give you a wide range or versatility, but if you are looking for a 14-pound portable to take where ever this is definitely one worth considering.
As far as basic goes, this is about as simple a gas grill as you can make. The single, straight, tubular burner pumps out 10,000 BTUs from a disposable 1-pound propane bottle. The porcelain enameled "flavorizer" heat tent spreads out the heat under the lightweight steel wire cooking grate. Yes, not sophisticated, and at around $70USD this isn't the cheapest portable on the market, but it is reliable (almost) and durable. If you are a heavy griller who likes to hit the road you will be happy to buy another one of these in 5 years or so.
Okay, I said almost above. The igniter is a basic push button piezoelectric unit that can fail after time, leaving you to use a match to light the burner. Not a problem if you are not expecting perfection.
This is a perfect little portable for tailgating or the college kid who wants a grill.
