Did some "binging" tonite and found this article, which seems to nail it as to what is required to hook a propane grill intended for canisters up to the quick disconnect LP port on the airstream.

Looks like you need to remove the regulator on the grill, and replace with a t-fitting with a quick disconnect that let's you bypass the regulator, then use a quick disconnect hose.

Not sure the weber hose on amazon will work, unless you merely intend on connecting to a spare 5lb propane tank.

I will continue to use my Cobb until it falls apart and than move on to something else. The Cobb is so well designed and built that I think that will be many years down the road.
Good to know, thanks. I'll do the same.

There is one glaring problem with that article. When you remove the regulator from your grill you are still going to want a valve on the grill to adjust flame height for different foods. Most marine grill manufacturers market a low pressure valve replacement to give you adjustment and shutoff capability at the grill because many boaters want to connect their grill on the low pressure side.
I do not know whether Weber markets a low pressure replacement valve for its regulator replacement and I would be wary of just removing the regulator and installing a disconnect.
I have a Dickinson marine grill with the low pressure kit on mine so I use it connected to my AS outside propane connection. I have gas quick disconnects on the grill and hose.

I do not believe that anyone has mentioned the regular-sized Weber Smokey Joe. They are small, very portable, easy to clean, and they work. However, if you overload the charcoal in it, you will have problems keeping the coals going with the lid on. Duh, I finally read the manual, and for direct grilling, they recommend 30 charcoal briquettes. I had probably been cramming 45 into it. Check it out.

That's one reason I still like, and still use, my Cobb even though the company closed its doors. Never needed more than a dozen briquettes for any meal I've prepared with it.

But my Cobb will eventually wear out, and when it's gone, there ain't no more. So I'll have to keep the Smokey Joe in mind.

I vote for the Cobb as best grill. But as others have noted Cobb is closing it's doors here. So, I too will see what's available now and submit an order for minor items. I have the entire outfit and accessories, even use the wok in my apartment kitchen. It works great for stir fry.

Weber Jumbo Joe is the best portable for me hands down. I am very much a grill guy and prefer charcoal to propane. The jumbo Joe offers as much space as a large weber 18.5 charcoal but in a short smokey Joe style. It travels with me for tailgates and camping anywhere. Smokey Joe is just a little too small for me but the jumbo works perfect and is only around 50$.

If you guys like to smoke meat they just brought back the small 14.5 weber smokey mountian. Perfect to smoke pork or ribs for 2 to 4 people.

I use charcoal chunks at home with my Big Green Egg, but on the road I want more convenience and have a Weber 220 (now 2200), the lowest priced with a thermometer. I run the 16 oz bottles on the road, and refill them at home from my 20 gallon. The unit works really well, not as hot as the BGE can do, but pretty good. It also just fits in my back storage area. I also bought the cart, but only used it once, would not buy it again.

Glad I'm not the only one who still loves my COBB. I wish I'd gotten the accessories though. They were always a little high-priced for my taste. But I like the grill a lot, and still use it every summer. I clean it after each use, and don't see any reason to expect it will wear out anytime soon.

YES! I use it on vacation daily for 7-8 or 9 weeks. Cobb is versatile.

So after a lengthy effort to hook the Weber up to my quick disconnect on the AS, I concluded it was easier to just buy a 5lb portable tank, using the Weber 6501 kit with a 2way tee accessory to hook up the Weber and my little red campfire at the same time. Works great.

We have the Weber 220 in both the UK and the trailer/truck when camping. On Sundays over here in the UK, I cook either a leg of lamb or 7 to 8 pound rib eye roast to relieve my sister-in-law of the Sunday dinner preparation she does every week for her mother-in-law for the last 15 years (since the stroke left her paralyzed on the right side of the body and loss of vocabulary.

There is a learning curve when trying to cook in 40 degree F weather with lots of wind blowing and raining cats and dogs.
