For a first portable grill I think the CGA is a better choice. It is so versatile. Check out some of the threads by Phubar et vie for awesome cooks which demonstrate how versatile it is.
Having said that, the Lodge CI grill is get fun to cook on, especially things that need to be seared on high heat. Just needs some TLC.
