Ditto on all points. When we're at a site, we've got it set up on its own table/cart with the big propane cylinder. When on the road it's in the back of the pickup wedged in there next to the monstrous dog crate with all the other junk we take with us (bikes, kids' water equipment, cooler etc). The propane tank is bungeed next to the wheel well so it doesn't move.

I keep ours in a large card board box to catch any grease under our queen bed. With the bed down there is no smell.

coleman makes a great propane grill that folds up and can be stored in the rear storage area. I also use a coleman stove and they both fit really nice and out of the way in the same area. walmart has this unit for under $70. out of site but ready to go anytime

In the bed of the truck - it's small but can cook 2 steaks. Came with an extra grate. Cheap - less than $20 at Acadamy Sports - so that makes it disposable if necessary. BTW - it matches the AS look.......

You know they reuse those 1 pound bottles, right? I mean, that's why I've been recycling them at Home Depot for years, hopefully!

Bredlo,
I know you can refill them, but then, I was told, it is illegal to transport them across state lines. I don't know about recycling them. I just always see people throwing them out. I have never really used them. I have a propane tank "tree" to run a coleman lamp on top and the accessory hoses to run off the bulk tank from the "tree".

I ALMOST stopped drinking beer when they got rid of deposit / returnable bottles.

I bought an adaptor to refill mine of the big propane tank... Just bought the Weber Q.. not sure where I am gonna store it yet... not much storage in the 68' (YET) but the zipper bag sounds like a good idea..

How can it be against the law to transport the 1 pound tank across state law? I have never heard of this before, but that doesn't mean it isn't so. But "they" have to know campers buy them at Wal-Mart to save money and take them camping with them (us) and we often cross state lines.

Didn't know that. Pathetic to think of all those empty cans in landfills - my God, think of all that wasted space inside. These things are recyclable steel, and people should be rewarded for recycling them as such, same as copper or any other kind of metal.

Done ranting. Awesome idea on the accessory hose - might try that myself.

Ahem, REAL men don't BBQ with propane. Just kidding, sure glad I read the one about storing the BBQ in a contractors garbage bag and NOT in the back of the TV which is what I was going to do without thinking. We're headed for bear country in the Grand Tetons,another reason for reading on this site and asking questions, thanks again. JG

Paper Grill

I have used a Newspaper grill since my Dad bought one in the 1960's.

It is the size of a 2 gallon bucket and stores in three sections like a Boy Scout folding cup. The box that holds it is about 12" square and 8" tall.

You just wad a up 3 double sheets of newspaper and light. It will cook steaks or hamburgers great. You only use black and white newsprint though. The funny papers will make the steaks taste "funny".

No storage problems. No propane, no problem.

Had a newspaper grill for a while, left it outside to many times and it rusted to bad to use any more. We now use one time use charcoal grills, carry a few under the stove. Most times I cook over an open fire with a portable tri-pod grill, this also stores under the stove. Propane is fast but it's not camping to me.
