Okay, maybe the 1930's. See my signature line for my standard excuse for forgetting...

Oh, that's an easy one if you live in the west near almost any national forest: Propane grills are usually permitted, but just about everything else is not!

Good point. I wasn't thinking of all the problems with wildfires.

Curious though, do you carry a seperate propane tank for the grill or do you just hook it to one of the trailer tanks?

Also, what brands are small and compact for easy storage, etc. Now I have a small Weber charcoal style, and I carry it in the bed of my pick up.

Oh, we just have a grill that uses one of the little "propane torch" tanks that you pick up at the hardware store. (The grill was cheap and relatively compact.)

We use a tailgater pellet grill that we got for a wedding gift 8 years ago.

If they weren't so pricey, more people would get them, they are fantastic! Then the price would come down too. No lugging around wood and waiting for the coals, but all the flavor; you can grill, bar b que and smoke with them. The BBQ pellets are better quality than the heating type, and come in lots of flavors, like hickory, mesquite, and oak.
The company ours came from is out of business, but this is a good place to get one:

Grew up with gas. Need to learn the skills of charcoal. Everyone says taste is better. Not sure I could tell.

If it's more family and friends than just my wife and myself, we use a propane grill outside, and also a 2-burner propane camping stove.
Sometimes, it's just more fun to hang out outside and use the simpler appliances, even though the Airstream has a great galley.
If it's just the two of us, then we typically use the galley only, with a few interludes by the propane grille. I just recently got a vegetable cooking attachment for the grille, can't wait to try it out.
At home, it's charcoal in the Weber Kettle - no exceptions.

Steak right on the coal. Best there is. Lighter fluid is for cigs not beef.

We cook a lot on the Airstream's stove. Dinner is usually on the charcoal grill. If you use lighter fluid sparingly, and let the coals get completely white, the fluid is all burned off by then, and it does not affect the flavor, which by the way comes from the fat dripping down on the coals. I've heard throwing the meat right on the coals is the way to go.

We use a Coleman stove that runs on the small propane cylinders. We also cook on the campfire - either hobo dinners (hamburger, potatoes, carrots, oinions, sweet potatoes, etc. wrapped in foil) or in pie irons. The pie irons are great for pizza, grilled cheese and especially cherry pie! We've been trying charcoal on the fire as well to see if we get more even heat in the coals. No lighter fluid!
The kids also use the fire for hotdogs and marshmallows. They're not going to be impressed when we pull into the first campground that doesn't allow fires!

This seems like as good a time as any to add that if you get a chance, catch the 'Q' episode of Good Eats on Food Network, where Alton shows how to BBQ a boston butt using a homemade smoker. The entire episode takes place in and around his 70's vintage AS!

We haven't cooked outside yet. Seems like one more accessory to drag along. We cook inside and often eat outside. I might be tempted to try it someday though...
