10 Best Portable RV Friendly GRILLS & SMOKERS

By: Travels with Ted, The RV Camping Experts August 8th, 2023

Types of RV Grills

There are four main types of portable RV grills: propane, charcoal, pellet and electric. Each type has its own unique advantages and disadvantages.

Propane grills are the most popular type of RV grill. They are easy to use and clean, and they provide a consistent heat source.


Charcoal grills give food a smoky flavor and are  more affordable than propane grills. However, charcoal grills can be more difficult to use and clean


Pellet grills give food a rich, flavorful taste, but pellet grills require electricity, so they are not ideal for dry camping without power.


Electric grills are the most portable type of RV grill. They don’t require any fuel, so they are easy to use but don't provide as much heat.


Best RV Grills

Now that you understand the options, here are our picks for the best portable RV camping grills.


Our first choice for the best RV grill is the Blackstone 1860 On the Go Griddle. It is a portable propane griddle that is perfect for RV campers and tailgaters. 

We personally travel with the Webster Smokey Joe 14-Inch Portable Grill. This tabletop charcoal grill allows us to get the traditional charcoal barbeque flavor.


Made by one of the biggest names in pellet grills, the Traeger Ranger is one of the best portable RV grills. The tabletop appliance is not just a grill, it also smokes bakes, roasts and braises.
