Have a Solaire Everywhere coming today for the 23D along with a propane adapter hose, carrying bag and their stand. We have limited storage in the Mercedes ML320 CDI tow vehicle and we will only be cooking for two people. It is very compact 21"W x 9"H x 13"D (including carrying handles) and weighs only 15 pounds. We plan to use an existing five pound propane tank.

Lou,

Be really careful on your first few uses of the Solaire. They run so hot that you have to seriously change the way you grill. Much shorter cooking times. You'll love it once you get the technique down.

Nothing cooks like infra red !!

I certainly agree with Lew. An infrared grill can get hot very quickly upwards of 700 degrees and as a result takes a while to learn how to control the heat so one does not burn or over cook the food.

Although I do use my TEC on occassion at home I prefer my green eggs or pellet grill as I think they inpart more flavor into the food.

Camp Chef??

We are totally intrigued by the Camp Chef system. Saw one used this weekend at a rally and looked awesome. The guy loved it. Seems to do a lot if you have room to carry. Anyone here have any experience or thoughts on this system?

I just got a Cadac Safari Chef. It is a cooker, griddle, grill, wok and BBQ all in one. It is a table top with folding legs and uses 1# cylinders, but can be easily converted to bulk propane. They have a fb page cadac international worth a look. I think they are from South Africa as they use some Afrikaans words in their advertising.

The small propane grills don't get hot enough to grill anything. We have a Weber Q grill that we bought and added an extended hose that we hook up to our large propane tank for the trailer. You can grill what ever you want. We set the grill on a portable bench that works for cooking and washing your own trailer. This is perfect, not too big and your can grill your steaks, chicken or brats.

That is why we have the Coleman Road Trip. I am not a fan of some features, but it has 2 burners at 10,000 BTU each. The newer model is 22,000 BTU overall. The road trip cooks steaks like they were meant to be cooked.

Just bought the Camp Chef system. Looks awesome. Saw it being used at a Airstream rally in AR. Can't wait to try it out. Many accessories available including a pizza oven.

Love, love, love my Weber Q. Many satisfied neighbors have enjoyed my flat-iron steaks a la Weber Q, and the brats are really yummy. One of my happiest purchases ever.

Ideally would work with small propane bottles as well as charcoal. Thanks.
We use the Weber Q1200- it works great and is easily portable not too heavy and easy to keep clean and very well made. It uses the small bottles of propane but there is an option connection that lets you connect to a large propane tank if you want to. You can get the stand which is optional or use your own table and I just saw it comes in great colors to coordinate with your awning if you want.

FYI the Coleman Road Trip XLE grill is on sale at Amazon for $150. I like the looks of the wheels and handle for transporting.

http://www.amazon.com/Coleman-RoadTr.../dp/B00GPEKBPE

This little Weber charcoal grill works for the less-is-more folks with smaller coaches like our FC20.

This folding grill looks interesting:
