Its time for a new BBQ. The old POS works ok, but I want something a little more versitile.

Here's the challenge. I'm in an apartment so I need something small/compact, but I would love to have something that I can use to experiment a little with smoking, planking and such.

I ran across this rather interesting Cobb portable grill that uses charcoal, but has an unconventional design. I'm wondering if anyone here has heard of or had any experience with this grill??

My other choice is something like this but its a single burner unit and I doubt I could run it cool enough to use for smoking.

Any other suggestions?

fred, we sell 4 different models of "portable" propane grills, and you are right - all have single burners and won't turn low enough.

The Cobb looks really neat, but I've never heard of it before. Depending on the cost, and if size isn't an issue, it may be worth a try.

For something that has been around and proven, look into one of these.

Go charcoal all the way...our family has a bagillion year old weber that does the job great.

BGE's (big green eggs) look very nice. I'd eventually get one of those for myself. Downside is they are very pricy...

Never saw one of those Eggs before. They appeal both to the barbecuer in me as well as my 'wonder what it would be like to be homeless and hang around a barrel fire for warmth' side.

My buddy has a big green egg - they are amazing! I would love to get one eventually as well.

Shawn. I came across the egg in my searching, but they seem very expensive. I found a couple of local retailers so I will check it out.

If I were to buy a new gas grill I would look at one that has rotisserie option. It is by far the most underrated way to cook on a BBQ and also my favorite way to cook meat especially if you like whole chickens, pork roast, leg of lamb etc. The cooking process is very low maintenance unlike smoking food and the results you get are fantastic. So moist and flavourful.

I'm still very happy with my Weber Performer (charcoal kettle with gas lighter) but if I were going to spend the same money again I would probably go for a regular Weber kettle and a basic gas grill.

The primary reason for the gas grill would be for cases where you want to cook outside without having to wait for coals etc... I would still use charcoal whenever time permitted.j

I haven't played with a rotisserie but all indications are that it opens as many new possibilities as charcoal, so that might be a good option as well.
