Outdoor Tables for Grilling


What is included in this list of grilling camping tables

The tables in the list belong to two major groups:

  • Folding grilling tables.
  • Collapsible grilling tables.

The second group implies some simple assembly, but this is done without any extra tools.

All of the tables here include also some storage and attachment features, some also have adjustability options in their legs. You will notice also that those are all top brands and very popular models that have been tried and tested by many users.

So here you have a deluxe version from the same brand as the table shown before. You can see the differences already from the pictures.  This is an incredibly functional structure, but it is here because of its side stand for a grill.

But it includes also a sink, a tabletop, a side bin, a lantern hanger, and plenty of attachment options for utensils, towels, etc. Note that all folds in itself for transportation.

This is a bit heavy construction and bulky when packed, so you have 33.07 lb (15 kg) of weight, and the packed size is 39.5 x 20 x 7 inches (100 x 51 x 18 cm). So it packs thin and it easily fits in narrow spaces.

How to choose your outdoor grilling table

This is about grilling and cooking, so the main table for the grill should be aluminum and this is what you have in the tables here. But there are some other features which you might want to consider.

Windscreen: This element helps in cooking and grilling and it will let you have the job done in a shorter time and you will use less fuel.

Folding or collapsible: So you have these two essential types. Folding tables require no assembly, you just unfold such an item in seconds. But it is fair to say that those that belong to collapsible models are also very easy to use and with an easy and quick setup.

Storage elements: Such additions are always welcome and you have them in these tables. But you have seen that there are big differences. It is never enough storage space, so the more the better. You have some incredible options in the list above.

The weight: I do not think is so crucial. These are car camping items and you will not carry them long distances in any case. There are weight differences, but those are usually due to different features.

The packed size: All the tables here have one part (frame) which is folding and it remains large in two dimensions. So the differences exist but they are not essential. All of them pack thin and they fit in narrow spaces.

The material. Typically this is aluminum, steel, and a combination of the two. This affects the weight a bit. Side tables are either plastic or MDF engineered material. I would say plastic is more stable against elements.

So this was my list with outdoor tables for grilling and cooking. It will be updated occasionally when I find a good table worth adding here. So stay tuned, bookmark this post and check when you find the time.
