BBQ grills

We are still in the process of equipping our 310 with all the necessities. One essential for us is to carry a good charcoal grill. Im interested in knowing what make and model you experienced folks carry on your rig. Obviously storage while in transit is a challenge, seems that way anyhow. So please share your wisdom, what grill do you carry and where do you stow it while in transit? Happy trails!

Are you looking for a tabletop model that you can set up on a campground picnic table? Or a freestanding model you can use at campsites with fewer amenities?

Well im not quite sure. I bbq 3 to 4 times a week at home and use a charcoal "barrel" type grill. I would like to bbq while traveling in the 310 but havent found the " right" grill yet to do the job cooking and is easy to transport. Either one would be fine i guess and there is just two of us so i wont be bbqing mass quantities. I guess storage while traveling is one of my biggest concerns, i would rather not carry it inside the rig. But, it would have to break down pretty good to get it inside one of the outside storage bins. A proper lid and good air control are my concerns for the grill.

Look into a Volcano II grill. It pops us and then breaks down. Can use charcoal, propane or wood. Nifty little grill.

I use a Cobb "kitchen-in-a-bag" grill that's small enough to schlep around in my storage-challenged Interstate even with all of the accessories, but they've gone out of business in North America. Amazon still has a few available, but no telling when they'll run out. When they're gone, there ain't no more. Amazon.com - Cobb Premier Grill W/ Bag

Just got my Volcano Grill also have a Cobb. Like how the Volcano breaks down and you can put the Charcoal at 2 different cooking levels higher vs lower heat. Will use my Cobb for grilled Veggies.

Basically two types of grills, gas or charcoal. Gas is great if you are in a bit of a hurry. For folks with patience and care about taste charcoal is the way to go. I actually carry both for the above reasons. I have and use a Cobb Grill at home and camping. It is basically a convection/slow cooker. It makes the juiciest, most flavorable chicken and ribs that I have come across in a small portable cooker. The advantage of the Volcano Grill it seems is the ability to use both gas and charcoal and it's larger grilling surface. That is a big plus in its favor.
