I went to the web site for Volcano grills. They look awesome! I liked the Dutch Oven being used with the Volcano.

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.

This seems like a great solution, but I'm confused on which parts to buy to make this work.

I posted this is another post but I thought I would also post it here. I learnt that Firecraft will be the distributor for all Cobb Grills and accessories. I was also told that they had a good supply of LOKKI charcoal. Their 800 number is 800-745-6109. They also have a web site.

Well, it took me like 1-2 weeks of a few pages at a time, finished this entire thread....I am relatively grilling newb in gneral...have a larger char broil infra-red propane grill at home for the occassional burgers, steaks, veggies, etc...I have been pleased with this grill...and will be using it alot this spring and summer (last year was my first season with it)...but do not yet have a portable grill of some sort for camping trips.

My wife is asking me what we will buy for our upcoming airstream trips...thus I have a decision to make...

I have never really been taught or done charcoal much, it look inviting as far as creating great flavor....

As far as gas, I think after reading this thread there are just so many great options...cost/quality wise..I think I could live with the weber baby Q1000 or some of the other varieties....

But the cobb looks fascinating and I love that I can cook whole chicken and such - smoke it....the mini green egg also is enticing me...I would love to use that around the house and while camping...its like 400 bucks...that would be like my b-day and christmas combined....saw a bunch of youtube videos of results in this grill and was really really impressed...weight is 36 lbs..concerned it is a bit small, but saw a video where a whole chicken was cooked....love smoked meats...but perhaps it would be a pain? hoping some owners of these will chime in...

I could not imagine going back to propane, love charcoal.

The thing about the Green Egg, or other comparable grills, is that they are made of ceramic. One drop, or pothole, and they're (potentially) gone.

I own the Costco version of the XL BGE, i love it for the backyard (keeps at 220º for 20 hours on one load of charcoal) but would not consider it for travelling.

For that I've got the Cobb, which I also love. The roasted/smoked chicken is to die for.

Can one still purchase it and/or is it a good idea given it is closed and operations overseas ?

Presumably, Firecraft.com has agreed to handle North American marketing of the Cobb.

Also, in the age of ebay, I don't worry about getting stuff from overseas. If somebody wants to buy it, somebody will be selling it.

We travel with a Baby Q and a small Big Green Egg. Since the Egg weighs about 65 lbs, we unload it only if we're going to be at a site for a week or so. Otherwise we grill on the Q. While the Egg is some work, it does such a good job, we think it's worth it. The Egg is ceramic and has to be packed appropriately. We have a plastic tub we line with bubble wrap and wrap the internal parts with the same and pack them back inside the egg. We've hauled several thousand miles without any problems (yet). We have another Egg at home and use it all year, and have gotten so used to having ribs and brisket, we endure the effort of packing and unloading. Nice thing about traveling, you can take what you want and work only as hard as you want. The important thing is being able to enjoy grilling or smoking after you arrive.

Big Green Egg

I have the XL BGE at home in the yard, we love it, thought about the mini one for the airstream, we use baby Q now. My only concern is weight and BGE could crack if banged around. I will tell you however, there is nothing like smoked brisket or ribs or chicken on the BGE... Awesome
