Go Anywhere Grill review
« on: October 10, 2017, 11:11:27 PM »
Hey folks,

Apologies up front because there are probably already a ton of reviews on the WGA. What might be a little different about mine is that I have had at least two of these charcoal WGAs that I remember including this newest one. I had an older gas model with wooden handles.  Also had a few of the small Smokey Joes over the years (bottom vent and side vent). There was a period of several years where I had no portable charcoal grill and was lugging around a Q120 until I picked up this WGA. What was nice about the Q was that I could use tie straps to strap it to the top of my (37" x 12") spare tire.

I like that you can fit everything inside the WGA (charcoal, tools, chimney, fire starter) and the Craycort grates that I also got for it just make it a great portable solution.

Anyway, what prompted this video review is that it has probably been 30 years since I picked up my first WGA and going to this very same spot up in the mountains (also for 30 years).

Sorry for the water noise!

Haha, small world. Just watched this last night after searching for Go Anywhere grills on YouTube.  Really nice video and demo of how you cook on it.  Your cooking kit is quite impressive.  Do you camp out of the Jeep a lot?  The water noise was a good trade to see the  beauty of the spot you were in!

Thanks. Yes, I cook out of the jeep as often as I can so I keep it small and light. I used to lug around a Q but that eventually got very old.

So, if you have 2 Craycort grill replacements, will everything still fit inside the grill like it did in your video?  I have a SJ, and the only issue I have with it is the top won't go on all the way with the small chimney inside.  I would switch to a GA if I can get around this issue.  We do a lot of camping, and I would like to have a grill that packed up like yours.

Yes, everything fits. I had both grates with me in the video; I just left the other one wrapped in the news paper. The trick to getting it all to fit nicely is to pull the legs out slightly and it will let the charcoal grate drop all the way down to the bottom. Do this one side at a time.

I was actually thinking about getting a propane GA (as mentioned- have had one before) but not so much a fan of the new design sans the flavorizer shield inside. Craycort makes a slightly different grate for GGA in that it has a more solid bar going down the middle and above the burner to make it more like how a single burner Q is situated. Here in California, it is prohibited to do charcoal fires on the beach (though tons of people do it anyway). I kind of want to bring a GGA with Craycort grates to the beach.  :)  We can camp on the beach down here in a few spots. Pismo Beach is one of them (and you can jeep there too).

I was going to hold out and try to get an older CGA, but it doesn't look like the design has changed, and colors are very rare.  Based on your review, I think I will go ahead and get a brand new one.  It will fit in our camping gear a lot better than the SJ we have, plus the chimney and supplies will pack inside for a 2-3 cook weekend trip!

You can cut the standard chrome grate in half and make it packable similar to the 2 pcs Craycorts

I was wondering if the standard grate came in 2 pieces!  Thanks for the tip on cutting it in half.

There was a video out there of a guy who cut the stock grill. Could not find it. I would be careful to sand it when done and make sure there is no flaking of the outer metal. Mine is brand new. Never used. Ordered the CGA and the Craycorts at the same time.
