Depending on how strict they are, maybe a Weber 1520?

I use mine on every single camping trip... does the job for burgers, hot dogs, steaks, etc. as long as you close it up between flips (otherwise it just doesn't put off enough heat).

I love the ridiculous names they come up with for stuff.

That might be another option too.

Yeah, they went directly from the box to the garbage. Didn't even bother "installing" them.

i have the charbroil(?) version of this for camping. Perfect, but as the 0rb says, you definitely need to put the top back on after flips to get good cooking heat.

I suspect his apartment complex has a restriction on charcoal grills. Otherwise, that'd be an excellent option.

He said that they approved a hibachi, which usually are little charcoal grills, right? I would assume, based on his wording, that the little Weber would be ok. I may be wrong, apartments can have some ridiculous and vague rules.

In their defense, they do have an in house butcher and they carry only Angus choice and prime cuts.

Now have a Weber Q100, a little bigger, just as portable though and compact. Takes the cylindrical propane tubes or you can ger a hose to hook up to a bigger tank. After a year or two of ownership I am still impressed with it every time I hit the ignite button.

Holds heat well, cooks evenly, gets up to temp quick, the porcelain enameled grill grate is easy to clean and non-stick, blah blah blah......... best grill ever owned in a compact.

For 2X the cost of other portable grills it's worth 10X as much IMO.

lots of great info. i am NOT grilling for a couple weeks, hitting the road (again).

the thought of BBQ and / or Grilling makes me want to yak right now... Hello? Earl? YAAAAAK.

i'm cooking some chops of pork, mixed veggies (frozen - i know, throw rocks at me) and rice pilaf tonight... on the stove / oven.

the chops come out good more often than NOT.

1 package of chicken bouillon
1 spoon of balsalmic vinegar
1 spoon of concentrated lemon juice
1 spoon of Goya seasoning w/o peppers (or with... whatever)
1 spoon of oregano
1 spoon of EVOO or any cooking oil you use...
3 cups of water

**bring the said chops to a boil, then simmer from 20 to 45 minutes, depending on the thickness... i have 1/2" thick ones on there, so probably 30ish...

**make sure you turn them over more often if they are thin as they will curl up whilst simmering

** spray a roasting pan w/ Pam cooking spray, preheat oven anywhere between 325*F and 350*F

bye the time you put the chops in the oven, they should be done and good enough to eat... the oven is to just crispen them up and brown them on the outside... you can also use your grill, but i found that to be too much work.

your sides, starches may vary... you can add other stuff like soy sauce, red wine vinegar, and other "all purpose seasoning vs. what i listed above... they come out great... once you can "smell them" they are probably done.. but i have a sensative nose... they brown pretty quick in the oven and you'll have to flip them once..

IF you wait to long, they will start to stick. you've been warned.

the flavor profile is somewhat tangy, NOT spicy...

also, you can baste them with whatever after they're cooked.. BBQ, sweet heat, sweet and sour ect... sometimes that helped if they taste is too rich, strong, bland or whatever...

your sides? you're on your own.

ETA: that "general" recipe of 3 cups of water & one packet of chicken bullion works for chicken, lamb and turkey as well.... i don't ever cook more than 2 pounds of meat and i use 1 package w/ 3 cups of water vs. 2 (what most suggest) because of all the liquid add-ons...

I think his wording of hibachi may be a bit confusing. All apartments I've lived in had restrictions on charcoal grills on the apartment patio, but were okay with gas grills. You could only use charcoal grills in the courtyard.

there is nothing wrong w/ me... i went on a "grilling" binge after coming of a mission.... there was beer, there was wimmins... there was late-night munchies...

that's like saying "dude"... you don't wanna go out to eat? WTF is wrong with you? *when i was fresh off a 6 week school and stayed at a hotel.... that meant six straight weeks of fast food and dining out... YES, it gets old.

the key is variety. plus, knowing how to cook somewhat makes me steer more towards overall "good" food and cooking, using my crock pot, rice cooker ECT...

That's still no excuse. That's like saying "this food has too much bacon in it." It is just wrong and should never be uttered. Ever.

You're doing a great job of making friends around here.

You noticed how every thread you frequently post in eventually turns into the entire thread telling you to shut up? Maybe stop posting for a while and lurk a little more. Just a thought.

yeah, wow.

anyway:



came out a bit more like porky-spiced-herby hamburgers than I was planning on, but they're tasty. If I had an appropriately middle eastern sauce to serve on them, it'd be more believable.

sure.... you can ban me if you want. i honestly don't care. the internet is NOT real life. it will not affect me either way.

it seems to be a one-way street... back to to grilling.

i think i will invest on one of them smokers posted when i get back... need to do more homework. i want to graduate to briskets, pork shoulders and beef ribs... pork ribs (baby backs, st. louis) i can do and have done in a gas grill... they come out good... just gotta watch how much propane you waste....

Here is dinner from the other night, marinated chicken breast and portobello caps.

The chicken bathed in; cider vinegar, canola oil, poultry seasoning, garlic powder, salt and pepper. The mushrooms were soaked for an hour in; balsamic vinegar, oil, diced garlic and chopped onions. (The Q100 needs a little cleaning)

Ok yeah. Mine is a propane grill with a single oval element and a cast iron griddle. I have used it for tailgates for years and its awesome. I can cook a ton of food on the little thing.
