With a portable charcoal grill or portable gas grill, you’re able to bring the BBQ with you wherever you go. Tabletop grills are compact yet powerful, giving you ample space for grilling foods. If a full-size grill at home isn’t an option because you have limited outdoor space, or if you need to find the best portable grill for tailgates, gas or charcoal tabletop grills can be great additions to your outdoor recreation. Because they have become popular with outdoor enthusiasts and home grillers alike, there are even more portable grills on the market from various brands. There are portable propane grills that rely on tanks you purchase separately or tabletop charcoal grills that use charcoal briquettes. Choosing either type is a great way to enjoy cooked meals while traveling, which is why many people load them in the car with the rest of their camping gear. The smaller size of tabletop gas grills makes cleanup a breeze: stainless-steel grates are dishwasher-safe and compact enough to fit inside with the rest of your dishes.
Finding the best portable grill for you.
To narrow down your options from the plethora of portable grills that Best Buy carries, first consider whether a gas grill or a charcoal portable grill is a better fit for your lifestyle. For grilling food on your apartment deck or porch, each style would be fine if allowed by your complex. It all depends on whether you want to buy a bag of charcoal or propane tanks. If you don’t want to lug around a bag of charcoal in your car when traveling, a gas portable grill is an ideal choice. You’ll still need to make sure your propane tanks are full, but there’s less potential mess and less space taken up in your vehicle.
In addition to your tabletop grill, you can host a barbecue on the beach or feed your fellow fans at tailgates before the big game with the right accessories. Keep drinks ice cold and store food for grilling in an insulated cooler. Ensure your chicken and burgers are cooked to the right temperature with a meat thermometer. Since no gathering is complete without music, set up portable speakers and play tunes from your smartphone or listen to the recap of the game’s first half. If other electronics need to be powered during your event, portable solar power banks with multiple ports for charging cords are a handy energy resource.
