Our Weber Q120 came setup for the small gas cans/bottles. I acquired their conversion hose and now can attach to the 20 pound propane tank we carry that could also service the fire in a can system.

Note that the "20" in the Weber Q series model number costs slightly more but includes a different lid with a thermostat to help keep the cooking temperatures where you think they should be.

While it is a small grill, it did have adequate space to cooks steaks for five folks one night.

The O-grill has a separate regulator. We removed it, added a quick connect fitting and a 2nd fitting to go between the quick connect and where the regulator was. Now ours runs happily on the AI low pressure propane.

Ideally would work with small propane bottles as well as charcoal. Thanks.

Talking Volcano!

Santa brought us a Volcano! Volcano grills
Uses charcoal, wood, or propane. We've been testing charcoal with a Dutch oven, works great. Collapses to 5" tall, ~20" across x 11" tall when expanded, 26 lbs, cook on any surface. Got a good Black Friday deal at Amazon. Can't wait to take it to Alumalina in SC in March!

Best Portable Grill?

Well, I picked up the new BGE Mini-Max today - cooking area of the small, same height as the mini, so it will fit under the tonneau just fine. A friend has already done a full twelve hour slow smoke in his and reports there was still some lump left over in the firebox so this ought be good! Artisan breads and apple pies at campsites now on! Ok ok... Slow smoked pork too

IanPoulin - Do you have weight info on the mini-max? We travel with the small BGE and enjoy it, but does get a little heavy. Thanks.

Volcano

The volcano truly is the Duch Ovens companion, worth looking into.
During fire bans we can keep on cooking. Gas,wood and or charcoal.
It will serve as a small fire pit as well.

Indy,
We love our Volcano! Been practicing all winter doing yeast and sourdough breads in DOs (using charcoal) while we wait impatiently for Spring! Works well in strong wind too, especially with its "hat" on.

Indy do you have the Volcano Dutch Oven or will just about any Dutch Oven work with the Volcano?

The ceramic enclosure of the Kamado style cookers is about as close to a brick oven as can be expected for portability, and they can be very heavy in the large sizes. But they make several in smaller sizes, so we bought the BGE MiniMax and it can be lifted, about 65# I think.

Makes a great oven for baking and roasting slow or at very high temps. Steaks can be properly seared then roasted for great flavor. Breads, pizza, or brats, its heavy but quite universal. It's new to us so will withhold any Kamado cooking advice but always willing to learn some.

Best Portable Grill?

pharm - the mini-max was released but only two or three months ago. Here in central virginia, only Green Top Sporting goods had them in stock at this point out of all the authorized dealers. 13" grill diameter, so enough for pies, cakes, roasts and sizable enough for good smoking work too.

The weight is 65KG, or 90lbs.
