I use the Holland Grill, sold at Camping World. It's very much like the $300 grill mentioned in an earlier post but is much cheaper. Looks about the same and cooks with the same idea, indirect heat. I love it and have had it for 4 years!

Marine Force 10

Before we got our AS, we always rented out our beach-front house by the week in summer and lived on our Bayliner. Like you, I don't like cooking in the galley, so we barbecue almost every day. At the end of the summer we would have to throw out the cheap bbq. We just replaced the yucky cheap one on our boat with a stainless steel Marine Force 10, which is designed for boat use but perfect for the trailer as well.

Very efficient, wind-proof---took us a few tries to realize that you can actually cook on "low"!!--streamlined. We paid about $200 Cdn through Massey Marine in Vancouver, but West Marine also has them.

The best I have come across

is this one:
It's expensive, but the food is so unbelievably good, that it's well worth the money. Plus, it cooks very fast and even.

We have a Weber go anywhere propane. works great and doesn't cost so much that would make me afraid to leave it on the picnic table while we're gone. Thought about one of the the more expensive but hate the thought of putting it away every time we leave our campsite---pieman

As reported earlier in this thread we had an infrared grill from frontage but it was too hot! we burned more food and never really made friends with it. last year we got a Napoleon Freestyle propane grill that came with a cool attachment to mount on the hitch receiver - love this grill!!! It comes in both infrard and regular burner - we got the regular burner... no more burnt offerings (well not many)

Cobb Grill

The Cobb grill is a great grill. It is lightweight,takes very little charcoal, stays cool to the touch on the outside, and stores easily. It does a great job grilling and smoking. I have found that adding water to the moat after cooking ,and while the coals are stiil hot, then putting the lid on creates steam and makes the interior very easy to clean.

Just returned from a short trip that included our first use of the "Broil King Porta Chef" from Camping World ($150.00 +/- including carry case & freight).

I installed a tee off my main gas supply and added a quick-connect w/ a 12' hose (Home Depot) in order to do away with additional gas cans (already carry 66# of propane).

Whole rig worked well. The grill fires up HOT, has accurate controls, is stable and cooks enough meat for a party of eight. Set-up, clean-up and break-down were easy.

We're pleased with our choice.

We use a Weber Q at home, using bigger tanks then the little thing it comes with. It's pretty light but has a really durable, cast grate. We've been using it for almost 3 years to make bacon and stuff that we don't want to smell in the house- I'd get one for the AS, and I love the idea of having a tee and just plugging it into the AS gas system.

Tin Hut-

Before you off spending your steak money on a grill and then having no money left for steak I suggest you beck out the Webber Baby-Q Grill. Now don't laugh, because it is a really great little grill! If fits perfect on one of those little folding aluminum tables, hooks right up to our LP tanks and does a really fine job on the steaks. Has a great little drip pan holder o the bottom that doesn't fall out and you can even get over for it when storing in the back of your TV. Sells for around $120.00 and we took our out everynight on this years summer trip of 6,500 miles and never a worry or problem.

And by the way, I like mine a little bit on the well done side!

Weber Baby-Q

I had a Weber Go-Anywhere grill for about 5 years and it was good, but the flame would blow out in windy condtions and seemed like it would never get hot enough to sear.

I recently traded up to a Weber Baby-Q and I absolutely love it. It takes small propane bottles, but I use mine with an adaptor for a standard propane tank. It has a nice cast grill that retains the heat better than the standard steel wire type grill. It also has a tapered bottom to allow grease to drain into a disposable pan. Something the Go-Anywhere grill was lacking.
