Hello all, thanks for letting me in to your forum.

I'm 34 happily married with two boys and I love to grill, been doing it over 15yrs. Only thing is, only on gas! We ended up moving and they don't allow propane in or near the building. So I need to switch to charcoal, on top of that I can't store it outside. So I'm after something portable but not to small, yet not to big cause I got to put it in the basement every time I'm done with it, and charcoal, any suggestions? And do I need one of those chimnes to start the charcoals? I did see the son of hibachi, any good? Like I said I'm completely new to charcoal, help! JR

Welcome to the forum! Weber has nice selection of portable charcoal grills. You just about can't beat Weber's quality or customer service.:thumb:

Thanks guys, ill look weber up, someone else said a kettle, but when i looked it up and it said 1100sqin, and $1300, i think its a little to big and pricy, heck even my Char-Broil Commercial 4-Burner is only 500sqin and was only $500.. JR
