Propane Grill

I have a trip going on the Deschutes this summer and I need an alternative to charcoal for grilling. Anyone have any luck hauling a tabletop gas grill? I have a $20 piece of junk one, but was thinking about picking up a nicer one. I was thinking of something like this, Any suggestions and links would be appreciated.

I have had that basic grill since 2005 and it works like a champ. I paid $150 back then and I have gotten my monies worth. The heat shield inside rotted away for the most part but still works great. Only problem is it is not the easiest to rig in the boat and is a little big. I am going to this style now more compact and even cheaper, you can find off bran ones for $30 or $40 bucks.

One of the local outfitters on the Rogue uses one very similar to those. I built some nice padded bags for them last year. The feedback about the grills and bags have all been good.
May the water be under your boat and the wind at your back.

I can tell you one of the few pieces of gear that has worked poorly for me is the Century 5320 grill/stove combo, purchased just for those fire charcoal restricted trips. It may be parted out or modified to be a propane camp fire.

I've used one of these little $20 ones for a few seasons. It's a pita to clean but works great every time.

After going through models with fake lava stone and every other gimmick we bought the Weber Go Anywhere grill. Unlike many other cheaper BBQ the Weber gets HOT, and it's an even heat. Easily holds 3 big steaks, and breaks down pretty compact. $50 to $60 bucks, but they last. Great little BBQ, fits right into my dry box.

Plus one on the little Weber. They work better than full size gas grills.

Thanks for the input, I think I am now leaning towards the Weber. My $20 cheapo lasted a season or two of camping but then started falling apart.

Whitewater Worthy Equip, I would be interested in info on the bag you made.
