Charcoal BBQ/Grill - does anyone have a favorite?

It's birthday time and I'm looking to buy my hubby a bbq/grill (using both languages so I don't offend anyone). He insists on using his mesquite charcoal or Santa Maria red oak rather than any kind of gas/propane. Does anyone have a favorite camping charcoal bbq/grill they can recommend?

Hi Jill, I remember meeting you at Folsom SRA last Spring. If y'all want the ability to cook indirect -- for low-and-slow cooks like pork shoulder or brisket -- the Weber Jumbo Joe works well. When we take it along, we put it in the pickup or in the 21's center aisle.

We've been using this Weber "Go Anywhere" since we picked up last September; it will go in the front box. Just got a propane one though for "convenience"....we'll see.

I agree. IMHO the best tiny charcoal grill made.

Good- part of my collection but the round shape of it inhibits it being compact. Used to carry it in a Rubbermaid bin but man it was bulky. The Go Anywhere I put inside a large "got my own bag" and it easily goes in the corner of the front box.

Another that uses a Smokey Joe. That said, if I were to need to replace it, I would spring for the charcoal Go Anywhere. Looked it over last week, looks a bit more storable then the Smokey.

Heck yes! I am a hard core bbq'r too and always travel with my red oak bag. I use a Smokey Joe, charcoal chimney and starter paper that fits nicely in a Sterlite plastic box along with my wire brush and igniter. There's even room inside for my #10 dutch oven, both to store and for cooking.

Well I'm impressed! We've stuck with the Go Anywhere propane version simply to avoid the charcoal mess, and I've never owned a Smokey Joe because it looked too awkward to tote around. However, the notion of fitting a dutch oven into it is kind of compelling.
