Consumers Digest Recommends the Big Gas Grill for Tailgate Parties

Share Article

Portable grilling is advanced with the Big Gas Grill from Camp Chef. This three-burner outdoor range and grill features five times the power of standard grills, making it the Best Buy selection by Consumers Digest. Folding unit is preferred for tailgating, camping and patio grilling.

In a market saturated with low-power single-duty portable grills, one unit sticks out as the ultimate on-the-go grill with its durable styling, high-performance output and unique versatility: the Big Gas Grill III by Camp Chef / Sport Grill. The system’s innovative, multipurpose design might explain why Consumers Digest hails the product as a Premium Selection Best Buy in the Portable Gas Grills category.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled with the recognition. The Big Gas Grill truly works like no other grill,” said Ty Measom, Camp Chef president. “Simply detach the barbecue box and you have a full-size outdoor range. It’s like having a universal kitchen in one simple unit.”

With three 30,000 BTU/hr burners, detachable legs and a folding shelf, the range on the Big Gas Grill offers more than 600 square inches of cooking area. Set the hooded barbecue grill box over the burner and let the power of a cast iron cooking surface go to work – searing meat while retaining flavor and heat for maximum grilling performance, according to Measom.

“Camp Chef’s three-burner portable [grill] is a no-nonsense unit that stands at countertop height (31 in.) when assembled,” reads the Consumers Digest description. “[The Big Gas Grill is] suitable for large family outings and uses a standard-size propane tank. Accessories include a griddle, Keg Roaster and a Turkey Roaster.”

The Big Gas Grill was designed as a premier tailgating unit, according to director of engineering Brett Bennett. “We wanted a unit that would work great on the blacktop and be perfect for picnics, camping and RV grilling.”

Read the entire report in the June 2006 issue of Consumers Digest. The Big Gas Grill can be found at fine hardware and sporting goods retailers nationwide for less than $300. For additional information on the full line of Camp Chef products, visit or call 800-650-2433 to receive a free catalog.
