We just purchased a Magma Newport 2 grill with an additional low pressure regulator. We can use the aux port on the Airstream or use the small propane bottles when using away from the trailer. Typical Magma quality, pretty heavy for the size which is probably a plus for grilling and longevity. We have been using a Weber Tuck and Carry charcoal one for years but so many fire restrictions we decided it was time to switch to propane.

Your comment on using charcoal is sure a wakeup call when camping in many parts of the west now July-September! That's why I carry the Volcano compact charcoal grill and a propane grill (Coleman). I also just purchased a propane fire bowl for outdoor fire. Aside from cooking with charcoal, there have been fire restrictions these past few years starting around July on campfires, but propane fire pits are allowed most everywhere. My buddy purchased one last year and loves it. Good for nice clean fire, no smoke, great ambiance, heat, and still can do smores!

first of all, I did NOT read all the posts. I will throw in what I have - NexGrill from Costco. It has 2 burners rather than just one. Got it for $99 on sale! I had considered Weber but it has only one burner for while grill. I sometimes move my meat to where the 2nd burner is off just to keep it warm while cooking something else. It has not disappointed me except that it was made in China.

The 'BEST' one...

Can I ask, what is the grate made of? Cast iron or coated wire? Is a carry bag available?

The grate is like coated porcelain which is rough. No, no bags which I would appreciate it more. I appreciate the 2 burners when I could use one to grill and one to allow meat to stand.

Thanks. Neither are easy to clean, but the cast iron holds up better IMO.

I made my choice tonight.
I got the Blackstone 17" flattop grill.
Dick's sporting goods had it on sale for $75.
Most places are sold out.

Great choice. I would get one too if I had room. When I first started camping I bought the Coleman LXE Roadtrip and went crazy buying all the accessories so I feel guilty with the purchase of something else with something that I use occasionally. Anywho, I really like the griddle accessory. When I saw the Blackstone griddles I knew that was a super idea. I hate cleaning grills and people can go on all day about grates for meat etc. The Japanese steakhouse makes great food and what do they cook on? A griddle stove!

Why an outdoor frying pan?
We already carry 3 for the AS stove.
We prefer outdoor grilling to outdoor frying.😂

LOL, I believe the griddles are a great option. I have an electric griddle at home but I do like the idea of getting it done outside. Ironically when I started all of this i never really thought about such an emphasis on cooking but with the camper I have cast iron cookware for fires along with the Billy Bob setup, induction for campgrounds w/electric and my propane coleman grill w/accessories for propane PLUS the Airstream micro, stove and oven. Then of course the pots and pans that work for each type of cooking! The coleman grill is heavy. The carry bag with the grill and the accessories (some of those iron) is a really tailgate backbuster. That is why that griddle sounds good. In hindsight, I look back and think- what is easier and lighter and takes less time to set up. Each trip I have taken I usually come home and buy some type of "make it easier next time" device.

Hi

After spending a lot of time looking at what "the other guys" were using outside their Airstreams ..... we are going to try one of these:

https://www.amazon.com/Iwatani-35FW-...1-1&th=1&psc=1

Compact enough to stow away all sorts of places. Based on reports from others, a canister of fuel cooks a lot of bacon for breakfast.

The Nexgrill looks like a Weber knock-off, for less money. I do like the built-in temperature gauge on our Weber 1200, though.

The plastic "wings" on the Weber are a dopey idea, IMO. The Nexgrill doesn't have them. Maybe I think they're dopey because I managed to light the burners without remembering to fold out those wings, thus they "self-eliminated" themselves.

I also like that portable cooktop; have been using for many years and always carry it in my camp gear along with a 2 burner Coleman propane camp stove for use with bacon/pancake griddle when cooking breakfast. But for lunch/dinner, I still like to bbq...I am on my second O-Grill now, with nice zip cover and folding O-grill table. Like the size but cleanup can be a mess. I also carry the Volcano, since I love my steaks and tritips cooked over charcoal. Recently, after "much research" purchased a Coleman Roadtrip-X grill for use when I have larger crowds. (see below) It is pretty compact when folded up, sets up easy, but what I really like is you can control each burner and they each have a separate grease catch for cleanup..yes, I carry all 3 bbq grills mentioned, 2 propane camp stoves, and the Outland Cypress portable propane firepit; because I can in my F250!
https://www.amazon.com/Coleman-Roadt...-goods&sr=1-11

By the way, the propane fire pit is on sale at Costco for $79.00 in store here in MT, again...I paid $129 last year...really nice unit; especially since in summer many times there are fire bans on wood fires...plus, no smoke!
