Does it have to be a grill or would a stove do? You can find colemen naptha camp stoves on kijiji pretty cheap.

The stove is good too though, but grill is what I am looking for

Best Value at the moment IMO: The Napoleon Travel Q from Costco. Here is an old thread on it. I believe the current price is $169 and includes the carry case.

Cheapest option that would still be not-terrible: Char-Broil portable gas grill https://www.londondrugs.com/char-broil- ... ccessories - seems to be sold at a bunch of stores and will likely go on sale for $39.99 at London Drugs (and probably similarly priced elsewhere).

Cheapest option that would still be not-terrible and available today: Home Hardware version of the above Char Broil grill. https://www.homehardware.ca/en/187-sq-i ... /p/6420857 The Char Broil one above is the "deluxe" version with an added support for the top handle and electronic ignition. The Home Hardware will require a BBQ lighter.

There are probably cheaper ones available at Walmart, but they are likely absolutely terrible. Storing these inside is going to make a huge difference in longevity, my grandfather kept the Home Hardware one in his RV for about 30 years and replaced the burner at one point along the way. I bought a $50 one from CT and it barely lasted one season on my Patio.

The Napoleon 285 Travel Grill and the Weber Q1200 are also both awesome - but not that portable (unless they're going in the storage area of a big RV or something).

I bought this one for camping. It works great. CT has a similar one and sometimes Cabela's has it also.

Update: $99 in the Cabela's flyer.
