I'm definitely old fashioned & would choose the Lodge hibachi-style grill that you can use charcoal or wood, or both.

I also have a Cobb that works well for pork chops, salmon and vegetables, but not so good for steak and hamburgers. With the addition of the portable propane grill and the griddle, I have the perfect outdoor kitchen.
I have the same one. Works great! Grilling a couple of steaks on it as I type this. I run it with a couple of extension hoses and an adapter off of the trailer tanks.

Dont want to start a debate on the merits of charcoal vs gas but i deffinately prefer charcoal. I have found the choices for portable grills that will fit in my outside storage compartment on my 310 MH to be quite limited. Went with a Webber Go Anywhere table top. Its just my wife and I so dont need a lot of grill space. Its been doing the job well on our first three outings with it. Its got the good Webber air control so that helps when cooking a bit slower for chicken and such.

The Lodge grill is really nice and I would like to have one too. If you're camping in California though, many campgrounds are now only allowing propane grills (no charcoal or wood fires) during fire season because of the extreme fire danger, so keep that in mind.

A few weeks ago I purchased this grill from Academy Sports to use in my Safari. About $75-$80. I also have this exact same grill, though with a different name tag, that I bought from Lowes 5-6 years ago. I'm still using that one in my Excella. Lowes does not have them any longer, so I looked and looked until I found it. It's only a single control, but it suits our needs and holds up well. We use our grill a lot!!

I would like to hear more about those refill adapters. When filling those small canisters from the large, how do you know when they are full? Is there danger of overfilling or maybe exploding with excess pressure?

More danger of them leaking than anything else.

We are very happy with our O Grill from Camping World. Comes complete with a heavy duty bag. Cleans easily. Cooks quickly. They had them on sale for $134. Since we tow with an SUV, storage can be an issue for us. This stores nicely at the end of the bed in our 25 ft. Safari.

I don't fill the small canisters very often but they may leak after several fills, but you are using the can the same as you would if you put it on and off a grill or light the same number of times, and I have not had a leak.

I don't follow the directions so I'm not worried about overpressure: they suggest chilling the receiving can before filling and I just do it at ambient temperature. I think (but do not KNOW) that nominal pressure would be the same in both gas cans.

My Weber 220 (I think 2200 now) shows 700 degrees on the thermometer with maximum flame and it is pretty quick.

I would like to hook my Weber Q 2000 to the LP gas port on the front of my Airstream. However, when I connect it, the pressure seems so low that I can't get enough heat to cook. Am I doing something wrong?

In order to use the lp port on the AS you would need to remove the regulator on your grill and replace it with a control valve only. The lp port is already low pressure so when you connect your grill you are running the gas through 2 low pressure regulators.

I tried to start a separate thread on Pellet grills but got few bites. So I am wondering if anyone else has looked at them when they were or are looking for their perfect camping grill. Would love to hear from you

Landrum, thank you! That explains everything... Is this easy to do? Or am I better off using a separate propane tank?

I think it depends on the grill. I'm in the process myself of trying to find a grill. Some have regulators that simply screw into the grill. These can be unscrewed and replaced with a control valve. Camco makes one of these valves. I'm not sure the Weber or the O Grill have easy to switch regulators??

The Q has a separate regulator.

I came close to going the route of eliminating the regulator, but decided that if I did so, the grill would become "single purpose"; an appendage of the AS.

I'm back to the Coleman fuel configuration, so I can use the grill elsewhere when I want.
