Looks reasonable but a little on the heavy side.

Agreed, and expensive.
Im debating with a grill this sturdy if I can leave the stove at home. The weight would be worth it then.

I put 4 tent pegs on a reg cake rack and seemed to work fairly well.

This is another expensive grill that's about 1/3 the weight. But smaller & no legs:

Canadian Outdoor Equipment has various version of those grills. Made in the USA.

It's not the same. Doesn't pack up as nice and cyclindrical. A key aspect as to tuck it in on the side of a portage pack.
Nothing negative to say about Purcell grills.

I have that purcell and love it. It doesnt roll up. But it does tuck in nice on my pack. Just slid it down on the back side usually.

You pack a dirty grill into the back pack?

You certainly cant beat the Purcell Grill. But it does come with a price. The GSI Grills at MEC are quite good and while the collapsable grill looks good two/three rocks do the same thing. Go look at Youtube Outdoor grill master HOOP out of T Bay.
But for a realistic , "oops I forgot to pack it out" grill.

I clean the grill. The Purcell also comes with a sleeve to keep left over dirt out of the pack

My opinion...

Purcell rules. Fits on the side of either of my portage packs (Ostrom with cinch side straps). I have both the Traveler's Grill and the Voyageur's, depending on the trip. Both come with their own sheath. Personally I don't like grills with their own legs. Pain in the ass, and not necessary

The purcell has rounded corners (no wear on pack material) and is very light. I've used them on hundreds of demanding days in the bush and they'll probably outlive me.

Another Purcell vote.

They don't get that dirty and they have their own storage bag.
Use them upside down to control rolling hot dogs and smokies.

I'll pile on. A couple years ago I paddled halfway around Algonquin looking for a grill to cook steaks on three days in. 4 campsites on the lake and not one grill. I've been carrying a Purcell Voyageur ever since. I just wipe it down with whatever is handy (pine needles, grass, bark, TP) and into the bag it comes with. It definitely falls into the "buy once, cry once." category.

I'm pretty sure Chuck means tears of joy.

Start adding up the cost per use.
It's how I justify the cost of quality products.

I do almost all my cooking over a fire and seldom use a grill. Lining-up a couple of pieces of wood or maybe rock works well enough for pots and pans. Steak works well directly on the coals with a bit of practice. Hardwood is best.
But I've lugged a grill around with me before and would like to have a small lightweight (titanium) one in my "kitchen" barrel. There are a couple of different ones on Amazon, a little smaller than I think I'd prefer maybe but relatively inexpensive so I'm thinking of getting one. Has anyone tried a stamped-plate type grill as opposed to the usual mesh? They clearly impede the flame, which may or may not be a good thing. And I don't know how grilling will work out with all that flat surface.
Here's an example:
