My babyq 1000 acted up last trip - no all of the little holes where gas comes out and ignites in the grill are apparently getting gas there and as a result the far ends only are igniting - what do I do?

Infrared grill

I have one for home. Would not buy another. It work's fine but flame is kept completely away from food. Kind of like an oven.

Is the grill getting up to temperature? If not, could be the regulator. Call Weber and they will send a replacement. They have excellent customer service from my experience.

I think it's hard to beat the Weber Q. We have the little one and I did dinner for 5 last night. Does a much better job than my more expensive patio grill at home. I picked up the accessory griddle for pancakes and eggs - it does a beautiful job.

You need to clean the tube with the holes, use a piece of steel wool, if you maintain regularly you won't have any more issues!

I pack my Traeger junior along. Needs a power source but love the way it cooks. I pack a Honda 2000i anyway. It will run off an inverter. 600 w I think. The junior cooks much better than the bigger ones when cooking steaks. It's possible to get a sear on them. I've heard less than stellar views for their little portable one. I put a tailgater kit on mine and run it on the truck tailgate or campground table.

We recently returned from a nine week RV trip through to Alaska via the Alaska Highway. The trip gave us an opportunity to put our Volcano 2 BBQ grill through the paces. We used both charcoal and propane. Did not burn wood for fuel. This grill meets our needs very well - with charcoal and propane. We grilled; used skillets, sauce pans, wok, and dutch oven. Tip - charcoal starts nicely with cotton balls doused with WD40. No stink. No bulky chimney.

I have seen some portable grills that are infrared but I have never used one. does anyone have experience with them and if so how do you like them?

One word: Solaire

Have used one for 10 years. Takes a bit of 'education and experience' to get it right but once you do........ nothing works quite like infrared.

I recently purchased Tec Cherokee infrared Grill for camping. It is IMO a great addition to my other cooking toys. However as Lewter said it does take a bit of getting use to as it can get extremely hot (upwards of 600 degrees plus). I am still learning but on our last trip I cooked both breakfast (pancakes and sausage) and dinner (porterhouse, bone in loin chops with corn in the cob). This grill along with our induction burner should provide all the heat I need to cook while camping.

Q1000 Works For Us!

The Weber Q1000 is an awesome lil system when the two if us are camping:

very precise temp control with built in temp gauge;
runs off green bottles or your propane tanks with optional hose;
optional stand is great for transporting as well as keeping it off the pic-a-nic table;
ez to light and clean;
small and light weight, the table "wings" fold into the main grill for storage.

I purchased a griddle that fit the grill and was able to cook b'fast for four last weekend; eight eggs and 1/3lb bacon!

Hey Bug, we have same grill and love it. The stand is very handy. We have the propane hose but haven't used it yet, too convenient with green bottles. Can you tell us what griddle you got? Sounds like a good addition...

The best feature is that you can grill on one side & put a pot on the grate on the other so I don't have to run in & out of the trailer when preparing a meal. At our last rally, we prepared chili dogs for about 25 people for lunch one day quite easily...dogs on one side & chili pot on the other.

I first used one of these at the Rocky Mountain AirstreamForum.com gathering (it was Les Gilliam's) we cooked Grand Marnier French Toast for about 25 people...you could fit about 10-12 slices on it at once. I fell in love & had to have one! The rest is history ~

Which model Coleman?

TC,

I don't rightly know, we just measured the cook space and Susy went to Wal Mart and picked one up that fit.

You can't close the lid on it (end handles get in the way) but it pretty much covers the entire cook space.
