I say "portable" as the Treager Portable weighs 40 pounds. I'm trying to figure out what to get for Christmas and I likened to a grill I can take camping and store it in a compartment in the motor home. I'm leaning to the Treager BBQ020 as this one is the most compact. I see people recommend getting the digital controller installed to replace a lame three speed switch so that is another $70. I don't know much about these grills but I do like the food that comes off of them.
