My vote is for the Volcano. Get a charcoal chimney and I don't even take the gas burner. Works great and fires up quickly

That is what I have been using so far as I have no propane tank. It does work quite well. Going to break in the dutch oven this weekend. I have a hankering for some peach cobbler!

Q200 here. Rock solid but a tad on the large side. Probably would get the Q100 for the size and weight. Left the charcoal thing long ago because when we camp in the cold weather the propane grills are less of a hassle. The small propane canisters are easy to pack and much cleaner to deal with. IMHO

We have the new Weber 2200, and I'm just getting used to cooking with it. It works great!

A bit of advice, and I won't go into the gory detail; configuring the Weber to work with the LP port on the newer Airstreams is a waste of time, IMHO.

I used a Q200 off a low pressure tap for years without a problem. Seems to me the Q's regulator would just pass the gas (!) with no need to regulate it. Any how, it worked well for me. YMMV.

I like to have the option of a high flame to start with (if I'm grilling a steak, for example). And I just can't get that with the hookup you're describing.

The Weber I have has a built in thermometer. The low pressure hookup will get the grill to about 400 degrees, BUT the standard Coleman type tank connnection (for which the grill is designed) will get the grill to 600 degrees quickly.

I have been very happy with our Magma Cabo. Burns hot, easy to clean, and they make a low pressure valve, which I bought this year.

I bought the Q1000. I figure Geek did his home work. It seems to cook well.

I refill my !# propane bottles at home from the 20# bottle. I have not weighed before & after, but it seems that the small bottles don't get "full." However I carry a few of them and so far it works out fine with my Q220 (thermometer in the lid.)

I also had bought the cart and used it...once. You probably will not need it, but if you do need it I have one available in the SanFran Bay Area.

Yes, I can see that. I've never run it off a canister, but on my low pressure line the flame did seem a little low. It was never an issue because I don't sear steaks, I only cook lower temp stuff, so I never really noticed.

I converted this Char-Broil portable charcoal grill to gas and wood. Ran a low pressure gas line to the back side of the trailer for it. It is heavy, but works great

If so it apparently is not an exclusive distributorship (sp).
