John, is that the Smokey Joe a smoker? I have one of those Brand X smokers I got at HD. I smoke dry hot RED Jalapeno peppers, then you have "Chipotle". After they are dry grind them up and sprinkle on whatever.
Another thing to make is "Spam Jerky" cut the Spam into strips sprinkle with pepper and smoke dry. A little salty, but good.

nope, it is just a little version of the normal sized weber grill.

however, if you build a small fire and place it on one side, add wet wood chips you can smoke with it. i have done fresh rainbow trout this way.

it does a passable job.

interesting recipe for spam b.t.w.!

We've done a lot of camping and almost always cook outdoors. After burning through a $15 copy, we spent $49 on the Weber portable (Go-Anywhere?). It is definitely better quality and worth the difference. We also have a Coleman RoadTrip Grill (very popular at little league games). It is versatile and has a large area, but it is heavy and difficult to store. At the end of the day, I'd recommend a good Coleman propane stove, a Weber grill, and a refillable propane tank or tap into the trailer supply.

The delecto grill sounds great! Thanks for spreading the info. Have you tried cutting your own hardwood blocks? We have so much stacked oak and it's too hot to burn. This sounds very similar to a little stove I have that uses a fan and one D cell and can boil a pot of water in two minutes using just about anything-bark, pinecones, pine needles leaves etc.
But I couldn't find any price info on them. The site is being remodeled. Approx how much is the Delecto? Thanks silver suz

We just received UPS the Firelight II by Ducane: a small portable suitcase type propane combo. One side functions as a grill while the other as a two burner stove. We have previously used a two burner Coleman propane stove along with a Little Smokey Joe barbecue grill. If we like the new unit, we'll pass the others on to our kids. We'll try it out at the Midwest Rally and report back.

I cut my own hardwood but it must be Kiln Dried in order to work well. If you want more info while the site is being rebuilt call Woodflame and ask for Karen at 1-888-664-6966.

Outdoor gas grill

I'm not sure if this has been covered or not on the forums, but I'm sure most A/Sers have some sort of outdoor grilling equipment. I know there are a zillion products for grilling out there, and wonder what has worked for A/Sers. Must be compact (just two of us), easy to clean, and produces great grilling results. Prefer not to deal with charcoal, so limits choices to LP or Electric. Is it possible (or even worth the effort) to hook up a small outdoor gas grill to the LP tanks on the trailer, since the gas is already there? I prefer to cook outdoors while camping. We first bought a small electric grill from Walmart, but returned it after having second thoughts about the quality of the product.
I guess this would qualify as an "Airstreamers Consumer Reports" on outdoor grills! Anyone out there firing up their grills?
Jim

Others available from other places but you cann't beat the boat lp grills for a landyacht.

Paul,
That really looks slick! Can it be mounted somewhere, or just set on outdoor table? That looks like an LP connector on the right side of the picture....is it easy to hook/unhook? All stainless steel.......Nice! Looks like easy cleanup too!
Thanks for the info.
Jim

That grill does look slick but expensive...we bought a great little grill that sits on a picnic table from Wal Mart (other retailers have them too) for $30.!!!
It takes the prop gas cylinders (2 in a pack for about $3.00)..They last a long time. We went to a rally and only used one the whole time there. No one else brought a grill so it really did get used. It holds plenty of food. We put our grill in a big plastic bag and it fits in the outside compartment easily.
Good luck...

We use an inexpensive grill similar to the one described above. I keep it in my pickup tool box between campsites. Works wonderfully, and as stated above, is very efficient using the propane cylinders. The LP cylinders are so reasonable and easy to use and store that I see no reason to try and use the LP tanks on the trailer. Besides that, if you have a tank cover, the lid on the cover should be supported when opened or eventually it will begin to crack along beside the hinges. It just isn't designed to be opened and left unsupported in the manner that would be necessary in tying in an auxillary appliance such as a gas grill.

Weber Grill

I bought a weber "Go-Anywhere" outdoor grill about 2 years ago. These can be found on the internet (amazon) for $50. The cooking surface is 160 square inches so its works great small-medium grilling, it stores easily. It has push-button ignition, heat-distributing bar, legs pivoting to lock the and lid in place, it's also porcelain-enamled.

Hope this is helpful,
