Welcome back beautiful Ontario summers! A huge perk when it comes to living in Ontario is that you’re never far away from nature. If you and your family are itching to get outdoors, enjoy the wildlife, and breathe in some fresh air this summer, you may have considered taking a cross-province or cross-country road trip. Portable grills have made it easier than ever to feed your family delicious home-cooked meals on your road trips to save you money, and keep you from eating fast food! If you’re going on a road trip this summer and plan on doing some portable grilling for the adventure, these tips are for you!
Find the Right Grill For You
The most important part of bringing a grill along on your trip is finding the right one for your needs.
If you’re travelling with a large family you may want to consider a large grill like The TravelQ 285. This bad boy can grill up to eighteen hamburgers at once!
If you’re looking for easy portability you might be looking for The TravelQ 285X. This grill comes with a scissor stand and wheels to move the grill from one place to another without the heavy lifting!
If you’re looking for a good stand you should check out The TravelQ PRO285. This model comes with a sturdy metal base, so no more trying to find a flat rock or picnic table to prop up your grill!
Make Sure You Have Proper Fuel
One of the most important road trip grilling tips is to ensure that you’re travelling with an adequate amount of high-quality fuel. While using propane, take into consideration how much you will need for each night you’re grilling, then add a little extra to be safe!
Find Some Great Recipes and Prepare Your Portions
Take the time to prepare properly for the cooking that you’ll be doing. Instead of buying a family pack of burger patties and buns, find recipes that you think you and your family will love so you can try some new things on your adventure! Once you know what recipes you’re looking for, you can buy and package your ingredients and you’ll be totally set for the trip.

Keep the Veggies Fresh and the Meat Frozen
If you’re going on a one or two-day trip, chop your vegetables and bring fresh meat as they can last in a proper cooler. If you plan on going longer, bring the whole vegetable to cut later as they’ll last longer that way, and freeze your meat for your trip to ensure it doesn’t go bad before you get a chance to grill it!
A road trip is a wonderful way to enhance your summer and enjoy Ontario, but there’s no reason you can’t be on the road and enjoy healthy, home-cooked meals.
