Diner smell

Kind of on topic
Since I have an Interstate without external storage. I'm concerned about odor.
The O-grill has a carry case.
Should a moderately clean grate and a carry case solve the smell problem?

We use the Weber Q1200 with the fold-up stand, works great. So does every other brand/style that is "best" for any particular camper at any particular time. Ask them and you will see . . . everyone has their own "best" and good reasons why.

This may not be exactly what your looking for, but the results are incredible. I use a Green Mountain "Davey Crockett" plellet grill. It's based on 12v power, legs fold up into a carry handle, temps range from 180-500 degrees, had a digital temp control that can put out its own wifi to control the grill with your phone.
Uses wood pellets for fuel, so if used low 180-220 you smoking and if higher at say 300-500 it's more akin to a wood burning oven.
Could be worth a look.
Cheers

Thanks for asking.

In the 10 years since the old thread was started, the grill market has changed, and Airstream has started putting low-pressure propane outlets on trailers from the factory.

I added a low-pressure port to mine, and use a Magma grill, with which I am well pleased. It is much more convenient and reliable to use the low-pressure port than to use the various alternatives: disposable 1-pound cylinders, Ting off the high pressure connector at the cylinders on the tongue, carrying another big cylinder, or using solid fuel.

Sorry if this is off topic but your reply made me think of 3 questions:

1) is the Magma anything like the Volcano (which can run on propane, wood or charcoal)? If so, think that could be my next grill option - we use it with charcoal but it would be fun to try on propane which I haven't yet...

2) I think the LP port (which I recently had installed) is already low pressure so are you saying it wouldn't work with the Weber Q1000 (since the 1lb tanks connect PRE-regulator and therefore the quick disconnect hose from the already regulated LP port would connect in from of the regulator)?

3) what's the longest hose I could expect to use from that LP quick disconnect port? It comes with a 4 or 5' hose but as you know, they install it street side but all your camping is done curbside so I think a 20-25' hose would let you bring the grill to where we would normally use it. But I wonder if there is some distance after which propane doesn't like to flow....

Thanks!!

I use a Coleman stove/BBQ combo that does a good job.
I almost never use the stove burner tho, but got the item because of the aluminum grill. Great heat distribution.
I got fed up with those "goofy' little one pound fuel cans that cost 5 bucks in Canada; and then you have to discard them.
So I bought a 5 pound tank that cost about 5 dollars to refill. Had to refill it last year, first time in four years.
That. Four year usage paid for the cost of the tank.

We bought a Napoleon portable grill because we have the larger model at our house. We like it because it is fully warranted. You can get worn out replacement parts anytime with just paying shipping. Very sturdy (a little heavy, I guess, but not too bad) and works well.

Ditto on the Volcano Grill, very versatile and very compact. Been using it for a year now. The storage bag gave up the ghost awhile back after being shredded by the handle for the vents. Otherwise, good stove.

Propane connection

Will these portable stoves connect to the propane port in front of coach?
The dealer insisted I buy their unit for compatibility. Any suggestions?

Any stove that uses low pressure LP can be connected to the LP port.

I've made up my mind to buy the Weber Q1200 I have the Port on the front of the coach.
Will it require an extra hose for length to run it on the right side of coach in front? I found a Weber on Amazon that I will be purchasing but unsure of hose? Any Help would be appreciated I'm heading out on road soon. Regards Mike C.
