During the pandemic, grilling has been a lifesaver for families and those who love to entertain. This time outdoors has allowed us to spend time together, but socially distanced. Grilling also saved our taste buds from the monotony of traditionally cooked meals. 

As the coronavirus pandemic continues, however, even our favorite backyard spaces are feeling a little dull. 

What’s a grilling enthusiast to do?

It’s Time to Take Grilling Beyond the Backyard 

Sometimes your taste buds need the mouthwatering flavor of BBQ, even when you’re on the go. That’s when a portable grill can be a game-changer. Whether you’re tailgating, spending a day in the park with friends, or road-tripping across the country, you’ll be glad to have a portable grill along for the ride. 

Now that many people are hesitant to enjoy meals at restaurants, but still itching to leave the house, portable grilling opens a delicious world of possibilities. Just grab your favorite cut of meat or slice up some veggies, and get ready for a great meal. 

You might be thinking that grilling on the go sounds like a lot of work. Or that you won’t be able to recreate the gourmet grilling experience on a portable grill. 

We’re here to show you why your portable grill will become one of your favorite tools in your outdoor cooking arsenal. 

Ease of Portability 

Anyone who has ever tried to move a traditional grill knows it’s not an easy process. But a portable grill is made to be transportable. It can easily be tucked away in your trunk, truck bed, or RV. When you’re ready to start grilling, you simply pull it out and find a flat surface.

The Everdure Cube Portable Charcoal Grill is one of our most lightweight and compact grills—it weighs 15 pounds and measures 12.4” x 15.1”. But don’t let its size fool you. The Cube is a premium, all-in-one grilling machine with 293 square inches of cooking area and a built-in heat protection shield. A manual ignition gives grill masters the ultimate control, no plug-in needed. 

The Cube also offers a bamboo chopping board, food-grade storage tray, and removable chrome grill rack that’s held in place with two safety latches. 

Going on a picnic in the park or hitting the road in a tightly-packed vehicle? The Everdure Cube is a great companion. 

High-Performance Grilling Power 

Waiting forever for the food to grill can quickly take the fun out of your outdoor gathering. Fortunately, most portable grills are more than capable of the job. They heat up fast and can be turned off and cooled down quickly when traveling. 

The Napoleon TravelQ 285 Portable Propane Gas Grill is an impressive tabletop gas grill that boasts 12,000 BTU capability over two stainless steel main burners. The durable, porcelain cast iron cooking grid ensures a quality sear capable of surviving a trip from the car to your grilling destination. And it sets up in 10 seconds, using standard portable propane cylinders. 

As for size, the TravelQ 285 isn’t shabby. You can cook up to 18 hamburgers on the grill’s 285 inches of grilling surface. It’s slightly heavier than the Cube, weighing in at just over 36 pounds, but with an aluminum cast body, it’s still extremely portable. 

Fun fact: It’s available in blue and red

A Space for Your Favorite Foods 

Maybe you have a really hungry socially distanced crowd. Or you’re grilling up a few of your favorite foods at once. When you need space, a portable grill can still deliver. 

We couldn’t help but brag a little more about the Napoleon TravelQ 285. It provides superior grilling performance and versatility in a compact design. But maybe you find yourself craving extra space for your seasonings and grilling accessories. You’ll love the Napoleon TravelQ 285 Portable Grill with Scissor Cart

Your spatula, BBQ brush, and meat thermometer will always be within reach on the cart’s side shelves—it even has a towel holder. And when you’re done grilling, the scissor cart folds up nicely for transport. When folded down, it’s the same size as a golf bag, making it a great contender for small spaces. 

Grill from Multiple Surfaces

One of the best parts of having a portable grill is being able to set it up practically anywhere. We love seeing grill lovers fire up their grills on the beach, out on the water, and while cheering their favorite teams to victory at a tailgate. 

But it’s okay if your grilling interests are less adventurous—all you really need to set up your portable grill is a flat surface.
