I love my Olympic gas grill. I have been using it for 7 years, there are replacement parts, and when I carry it in the back of the trailer I invert it so that all the stuff stays inside. It works for me and doesn't take much space. I cooked hotdogs for the kids at church, 250 dogs in 45 min. I had two grills a regular 20 lb unit and the Olympic. The Olympic cooked more hotdogs in the same time than did the bigger unit.

Neat. Now read the instructions carefully and season the grill as noted. Don't skip this step. It makes a big difference!

Any input? Thanks!
I use a small charcoal grill. I like the taste from charcoal better than from a gas grill.
I just have a small tabletop one that fits anywhere.
I am also a smoked meat fanatic so I love playing with wood and fire!

Thanks for the tip! Probly would have skipped that. Great thread! We have been on the fence for several models.
We are big grillers, year round. Got a nice Charcoal on the porch, however it is a little cumbersome to move

Found a new tank this weekend at an army surplus/camping store. It's an 11 lb. tank and was $39.95. Just the right size to probably last the entire season. Looks just like the half size brother of a standard 20 lb. tank, only a little skinnier. I'll post a picture.

Pickup fee Paid

California Stores and Houston TX store has them. Will someone be my shopper?

I want the BETSO (the O has the two dots over it : ) from IKEA.

http://www.ikea.com/webapp/wcs/stor...ats=14261*14313

It is only located in the west coast stores right. It is a seasonal item. Does anyone live out west near an IKEA that could maybe pick one up for me if I sent payment and shipping costs, plus a little finders fee. I want to have it to use for an upcoming rally in a few weeks.

The web site has a store locator and you can tell if it in stock from the web. Let me know with a PM.

Thanks.

Rob

You talking about measuring the door opening on the 25' to see if the baby Q will fit? I'll measure it next time I'm out by it. In the meantime, if you post the specs, I'll have 'em handy.

I sure hope it does, I plan on going from a Smokey Joe to the Baby Q soon.

I think the rear storage opening (twins-if that matters) is several inches shy of accepting the height. Does the top remove? If so, then it still may be a go. If not, well, er I may need a trailer to carry my trailer's accessories. Hmmm, two bikes, generator, la fuma lounges, baby Q, dog crate, screen house, floor. (wish list)

Got my Weber Baby Q!

Bought it at Target today since Camping World was a longer drive than we were up to. We can just pull the cotter pins for the lid if it's a bit tall for the storage opening. I Like it alot. However when we disconnected the 14 ounce propane tank the propane kept escaping. Did we do something wrong? And where do you carry the tanks on trips?

We love the smokey joe. Just the right size for the 2 of us and you can't beat the taste and smell of slow cooking on it. We usually use the match light charcoal with it so we have no problem getting the charcoal to start up. You can't beat the quality of a weber either.

The Smokey Joe is the only way to go. I have two of them and sometimes use them both simultaneously. The best ones don't have the bottom ash grate so you can close the top and not worry about messing up your rig when you put it away.
