Not only do you feel better, but, you are 100 per cent correct, the Porta Chef and Weber Q and Dickinson are grills, and I feel better that somebody else said it.
I don't know that a portable BBQ exists, other than those that you would tow instead of towing your trailer.
I use my Weber Summit Gold D to do ribs, with only the smoker burner turned on. The other four burners are turned off.

Now THAT is a Barbecue. Even the name is a Barbecue name -- PITmaker...lol

But it does have a GRILL up front.

And when you cook on either charcoal or gas, you're GRILLING, not Barbecuing.

Whew! I feel better....
Depends on where you come from... As a native Californian, we have always called it barbecuing, if it is cooked on what you term a grill.
BTW, a belated welcome.

Only in Texas could they turn something simple like a charcoal grilled steak into something that requires a 1 ton truck to move across the yard, 1/2 cord of wood, and 24 hours to make.

I do however seem to recall some of the best eats I've had being in Dallas, or thereabouts.

BBQ for 17B

Just getting ready to pick up new 17B in a few weeks and have been looking for a barbecue I can hook to the trailer with a hose. Lots of good suggestions on the forum and other RV sites. I finally narrowed it down to a few including the Coleman roadtrip xle, Weber Q200, Porta Chef based on what people were saying and was ready to lay out about $300 to get a decent 2 burner grill. Anyway I found some info on an NXR portable 2 burner grill which looked interesting. Turns out they sold them in Costco in Canada for about $300, then discontinued them in 2014 and blew them all out for $200. I was lucky enough to find one on kijiji for $125. Looks great, nice heavy stainless construction, standard flare fitting for the gas inlet, nice solid stainless grill surface. Now I just need to get the right quick connect spec from ETI to get a 20 foot hose made up. It looks great so far will post an update after I actually use it.

That grill is at our local Costco- checked it out and though it looks great and has two burners I thought it was too bulky w/stationary legs. If you have the room it's great. Still looking, although my Weber Go Anywhere charcoal works great. Not sure why I want a gas one except I ordered the QC option, and I guess it's like home where sometimes it is more convenient.

Yes I saw them online at anywhere from $99 to $169 in the US but by the time you get them to Canada would be almost $300 so I thought this was a good deal. I think it is a great size and I can't cook without two burners so I think this will work for me.

Are the burners front and back or side by side? A portable that you can actually cook indirect?
