    Charcoal grill

    Been looking for a quality compact table top charcoal grill to complement a BGE and Yoder for doing a quick steak over a hot wood fire using a minimum of wood. Am tempted by a PK, but then tried this old $59 Weber Go Anywhere grill I pulled out from storage. Some similarities in shape and size, but certainly can't measure up. Yet the results were quite good. What am I missing?

    You are probably missing durability, heat retention and air flow control compared to a PK. Nothing wrong with the little Weber, I’ve had a couple of grills like that over the years for camping.

      I was using a Weber Smokey Joe to complement my BGE. It worked pretty well.

      When I got the Weber 22” Performer, I stopped using the Joe. Weber 22” with S&S or some such to keep the coals to one side does the same thing as the Joe.

      The more I think about it, the more impressed I am by the versatility of the Weber kettle. Add enough stuff to it and it will do just about anything.

        If I could only gave one grill, and I could only afford a little bit for the one grill, I would have a Weber 22” with an SnS. It is not that big, easy to get going, not expensive, and 90% of the capability of something really high end like the Hasty-Bake.

          You may just have a mild case of MCS. I find it is generally driven by wanting something better, easier or to try cooking on a different cooker. I can resist the latter driver easier than the first two.

            For a compact table top charcoal grill, that little weber looks pretty good. A PKGO though is bigger and overall a better piece of equipment. I'm a big PK fan and think their products, though more expensive, beat weber hands down (IMHO).
