Best Grill for Camping
Get your camping game up a notch by having a steak under a beautiful starry sky.
It’s a given that you should bring water and some energy foods like bars with you when going outdoors. But overnights are far better if the food is warm. While you can’t bring pans with you to cook with, why not bring a grill instead?
A grill can be your best cooking friend when camping. Grilled food tastes way better than your regular backyard barbecue. Way better.
Maybe it has something to do with the fact that you are outdoors and the food quality just doesn’t compare to when you are at home. Besides, if you are hungry from your hike, everything you grill will taste amazing even if you’re not a home cook!
If you decide to bring a grill with you on your next camping trip, choose a good one. Not everything is the same after all.

There are two known types of portable or camping grills: charcoal grill and propane grill. Here are some things you need to know before purchasing one..
Camping grills are generally light. But what’s light to you may be heavy for others. Always consider what your equipment gear includes. If there’s a lot, you can give up some of them if you really want to bring a grill.
It is important to remember that camping grills have weight to them. Therefore, consider how much you are willing to carry with you.
Portability can mean different things for different people. But the most common definition would be ease of carrying. If the grill takes up much space, make sure someone can help you carry it. If it’s a tabletop, it can be easier to carry alone.
Another thing you need to consider is the number of people you will be grilling for. If the group is large (4-5 people), you’ll need a grill with a big surface area so you can grill the food and serve it in a single serving.
How long can it cook hotdogs or burger patties? Does it have smoking capabilities? How about heat settings? Can’t it be put off by fire?
These are some of the factors that can help tell if a camping grill does what it should do or more.
There may be some qualities of a grill that you will have to give up if you want one more than the other. For example, if you are feeding a large group, you will also need a bigger grill that can accommodate enough food for the whole group. This implies a heavier and less portable grill.
Camping will always have the same effect it has for others unless you hate the outdoors of course. Incredible scenic views, good company, and great food. What could be better?
