Petco-Approved Grills for Tailgating Season

There’s no better city for tailgating than San Diego! The weather’s nearly always perfect, and the fans are friendly. Petco Park requires that your grill be gas fueled (no charcoal or wood) and that it fit behind your vehicle in the space you’re parked in. This means you want a small, powerful grill that can knock out plenty of burgers, dogs, ribs or carne asada for you and all of your friends. Here are 3 great grills that fit the bill!

#1 Coleman Roadtrip 225 Stand Up Propane Grill

Why it’s a great choice: Sets up and folds down in seconds, and has a built-in side shelf. 11,000 BTUs of cooking power through 2 fully adjustable burners. Pushbutton start so you’ll never forget the matches or lighter again. Uses 1lb propane cylinders so you don’t need to pack a full-size 20lb tank. Locking lid means you can worry about cleanup after you get home!
