In response to my last post on the Notebook Portable Grill, Aaron was looking for suggestions on a compact gas grill. The Weber® Q™ 100 is probably the gold-standard in compact gas grills (see Sean Michael’s review), but I ran across a similar grill that looks interesting; the O-Grill.
It is obvious that Pro-Iroda Industries had the Baby Q in mind when they designed the O-Grill. Its grilling surface is slightly larger at 225 square inches, versus 189 sq. in. for the Weber, and it cranks out 9,450 BTUs of heat, against the Baby Q’s 8,500 BTUs. Overall size is similar, but the folding legs of the O-Grill make for a much thinner storage configuration. Note that this thinness is also a disadvantage, in that you will not be grilling any whole chickens in this unit. For most grilling duties, however, the O-Grill offers a large cooking area in a relatively small package.
