@ dr pangloss and testy, thanks for your recommendations. I should have specified that i would prefer propane mainly for ease of use. The grills you recommended were the types i had in mind though asside from the charcoal.
@ Blithe, thanks for the link. That is pretty much spot on what i am looking for. Small and portable and dependable.
@ thethirdruffian, the green egg grill does look and sound good from reading the reviews, but it is a little out of my price range and not very portable for a college student with a car.
@ bond james bond, man i just prefer the grilled taste, which the george forman grill doesn't do for me. I agree with you on less is more with grilling for the most part. I prefer to sear one side, then flip it and then put a little salt on there. Seems to help keep the juices in it as long as i don't overcook it.
@ aeyogi, lol, that was pretty funny.
