With football season already here, knowing the Top 5 Portable Gas Grills for Tailgating is important.
When putting together your packing list for your next tailgate party, be sure to pack one of these portable gas grills.
I lived in Columbia Missouri for over 30 years. The Mizzou Tigers are everyone’s true love and they show it very well. Every saturday morning you can see the tailgating tents already going up. They start early and they party hard…till game time. Then they cheer for the Mizzou Tigers!
Everyone tailgating has a grill, of course. Some are hauled in on trailers or the grills already have wheels on them. Those are serious tailgaters. That is too much work for me. I like simple and easy.
Easy to carry and unload is perfect for tailgating. Finding the right portable gas grill is the trick.
Many times I have just used my electric griddle, but if I can have both a grill and a griddle in one, all the better, and less to carry for me. A few of the gas grills I found have a griddle built in, just flip the grill grate and it becomes a griddle.
The Top 5 Portable Gas Grills for Tailgating that I have chosen are based on what I need and things that I want in a grill.Having tailgated for years, I feel that I know what is right for me and my situation. Everyone’s tailgating needs are different. But here are some great choices in my opinion.
Top 5 Portable Gas Grills for Tailgating
#1 – George Foreman GP200B Camp and Tailgate Grill
This is one of the portable gas grills for tailgating that has the reversible grill that becomes a griddle.
We have come to love anything George Foreman over the years and this is no exception.
What I like about this portable gas grill, besides the griddle, is that it folds up so small you can carry it on your shoulder with the strap they provide.
It’s a nonstick grill so it will be easy to clean up. The grill tilts so that the grease will run off. There will be no danger of that getting in your car; just dispose of it at the site.
It’s large enough to cook six pancakes at a time, or bacon, sausages and eggs for several people. Then flip it over later for the burgers and hot dogs.
It comes in 3 colors – black, red and gun metal.
#2 – Coleman RoadTrip LXE Propane Grill
I love this portable gas grill for tailgating because of the size it folds up to. I like that it has a base and two side trays to work on.
It has a large cooking surface, 285 sq. in. with two cast-iron, porcelain coated grill grates that are included. There are two burners, so you can cook several hamburgers at ones, or just use one burner and only cook two.
You don’t need matches to start this grill, just use the InstaStart electronic ignition.
This grill also has a griddle to use for pancakes, but what is great is that you can have one side on the grill side and one on the griddle. Two grills for the price of one.
It folds up small and is on wheels, so no worry that it will be too much to bring to the big game. Just wheel it in the tailgating area.
This grill comes in lots of school colors. Check them out.
#3 – Weber 50060001 Q1000 Liquid Propane Grill
Weber grills have been around for a long time and we trust them.
So we can trust that this little guy will do his job at your tailgating party.
It comes complete right out of the box, so nothing to put together. I always appreciate that.
There is a push button ignition so you won’t need matches to get this guy ready for the burgers.
Although there are two grill grates, there is just one burner. So everything has to cook at the same temperature.

#4 – Napoleon TQ2225PO Travel Q Portable Grill
A large cooking area that sets up in 10 seconds. That sounds like the perfect portable gas grill for tailgating.
This grill is made to last. With its heavy duty cast iron cooking grates and the “D” shaped burner, you will be cooking up to 16 burgers at one time.
It has a push button ignition so no matches are needed. I really like this feature because I feel I waste a lot of matches when it’s windy.
The legs fold flat against the bottom and it has a very secure handle to carry it with.
#5 – Cuisinart CGG-180T Petit Gourmet Portable Tabletop Gas Grill
Cuisinart is a name I have trusted in my kitchen for a long time. My mother even had several Cuisinart pans in her kitchen.
So right away I know it is a quality product that I can trust.
I seem to like the portable gas grills with the handles like a briefcase. This grill has that and sturdy legs too.
The grates are large enough to hold all my tailgating meat and a few veggies for me.
It only weighs 13 pounds, so even one of the grand kids could carry this for me.
Here is a video review of the Cuisinart CGG-180T Petit Gourmet Portable Tabletop Gas Grill.
