ScottMac, the Kristline looks like the absolutely perfect solution to our search for a quality, affordable, versatile, compact grill. We especially like the Grill/3 kit... propane, charcoal, and electric all in the same grill, Woo!Hoo! Thanks for the link!

Buckwheat,

I just recently ordered it directly from Kristline. I could only find a few online retailers and they wanted quite a bit more money. Plus, Kristline included their "Roto-Kabob" at no extra charge. It is an ingenious little gizmo - I hope it works as advertised.

Stainless Grill

Greetings, just joined the forum so not quite set up yet. I have found two very interesting grills, one high end and one low end.

http://www.rasmussen.biz/grills/portG.html The Solaire is a legend in the boating community and comes in two choices of Stainless steel, regular and ultra salt water proof. Retail starts at $550 but you can buy it now on ebay for $350. It matches an Airstream and could be mounted to the trailer via the hitch coupling.

I also like the Coleman Road Trippers. http://www.coleman.com/coleman/colem...ategoryid=2036

Sincerely,

Salmo.salar

"How to" convert the Weber Baby Q grill?

I need a good portable grill. After much research, I have zeroed in on Two Webers, the "Baby Q" and the "Go-Anywhere" and a nice stainless Grillware unit from Lowes. They all use the small propane bottles for fuel. However, the two Webers use the hard-to-find 14 oz bottles and the Grillware unit uses the common easy-to-find 16 oz size.

My question is "are the connections to the grill for each bottle size different?" And if yes, then how can you easily convert the 14oz connection on the Weber to accomodate the 16oz connection? Thank you. Bill

Bill, I have a Baby Q and to use the 16 oz bottle, you just remove the 14 oz bottle wire holder and use the bottle. If you have the space, I'd recommend buying a 10lb refillable propane tank and connection hose. It makes the grill a lot more useful and you will save a bundle on propane. Also buy the folding stand on wheels and cover.

Good information, Jack. Thank you. So, the connector is the same on the grill for the 14oz and the 16oz bottles. Just need to remove the 14oz wire holder on the Baby Q so the 16oz size can get to the connecton. I got it. Thanks, Bill

The only problem (if one at all) is the 16 oz bottle will not be supported like the 14 oz. was (with the wire holder). I used to slip something underneath the bottle (between the table and the bottle end) to give the bottle some support. This really isn't a big issue though.

One other note, is to be sure to follow the directions and season the grill top. It is cast iron and you need to do this right. The grill itself cooks faster than any portable BBQ I've ever owned. Just read the book that comes with it, especially the care and feeding of the grill top.

Jack

We tried the propane Go-anywhere and found it cooks slowly and is hard to clean.

We are now using the small Smokey Joe with a charcoal chimney style starter (newspaper starts the coals burning--no lighter fluid). It takes about 15 min. to hot coals and the only cleanup is the grill. After use, I close both vents and pour the cooled unburned coals into a plastic small garbage bag. It goes in the chimney for storage till next time.

I purchased a Campchef sports grill for our local club directly from them. They gave us a dealership in hopes we would sell more. I have sold three more to other local clubs and individuals at a 25% discount. It has lots of capacity for big groups and we run it off a 10lb tank or off one of the trailer tanks. It folds for compact transporton in durable bags. Goggle "campchef" to see if your club would like one. PM me, if interested or further infromation.

We just went with the BabyQ and we are very happy with it. We use the 16oz bottles and we also bought the Weber hose to attach it to our 30# bottles. The best thing about this grill is even temps everywhere on the cooking surface. We have done steaks ,chicken breasts, pork chops and other foods with out any problems. We also got the cover and stand. We are well pleased with this grill.

We have a Magna stainless steel marine kettle type grill left over from our boating days. It uses disposable propane containers, has a variety of mounts available including table legs which is what we use. All parts can be replaced, the unit can fit into a sunbrella carry bag (which holds down the odor) and it cooks really great. You can find it online at places like West Marine.

We use a Cobb. It works great for the Airstream life. 8 briquettes cooks our meal, and it is easy to clean.
