The Perfect BBQ Grill and Awning for my New Airstream

Question #1: I love to cook on an outside grill. My concern is storing the grill when not in use and the smell. I have an SUV not a pickup. My Airstream is a Flying Cloud 25 Twin. We are picking it up next Monday?

Question #2: Should I Purchase the Awning Packageaprox $1,500.00?

We have a Weber Q1200 and run it on a 20 pound propane tank. It fits in a large tupperware tub with lid. I've hauled it in my F150 crew cab, where it's in the cab with us with no odor issues.

And I would say absolutely yes, if you can swing the money, get the awning package for sure. It adds a bit of class to the unit, but also serves to keep a certain amount of sun from beating on the side/back too.

I have a portable charcoal grill that I store in a tub in the back. I clean it out before we leave site and it works for us.

I would second the Weber Q, I purchased a low pressure conversion kit and hoses and use the low pressure quick connect on front of my trailer. I set it up on folding grill table I purchased at Camping world, works great.

Yes on the weber Q, yes on the awning. The awning will help your fridge keep food cool in hot weather.

But understand about wind and rain potential to damage your awing. Look at the repair forums for awning damage.

We have never regretted spending the extra money for our awning package. As for grills...I have a lot to learn! Happy trails.

We like the hibachi style grille. Small efficient to operate, the charcoal stores easier than propane. Here’s one we have used for years but we got ours from L. L. Bean. http://www.cabelas.com/product/CAST-...A&gclsrc=aw.ds

We researched this as you are last April and did purchase FC 25 FB twin with awnings...nice. We went with Weber and bought the folding table and love it. It facilitates the small Webers; we got the rectanglular model to save space. Charcoal as a preference, but in some western national parks even coal was forbidden.

The venerable and unbeatable Smokey Joe is my favorite. I just clean it quickly before putting in the back of the SUV tow vehicle and no issues at all with mess or smell ...

I chose the Charbroil Grill2Go.

http://www.ourflyingcloud.com/2016/0...-grill_18.html

My complaint is that it has not variability in heat. Its either off or very hot. No in between, despite having a regulator on the gas. But if you learn to leave the top open you can cook without burning stuff.

Last spring we had awnings put on the left (road side) and rear (dining table side) on our 2014, 27ft, FC. This made a huge difference in keeping our AS cooler. As with all awnings, you must be careful in the event of storms and/or high winds.

We've happily used a Weber Go Anywhere grill for many years. Small, lightweight, has served us well. I can set it out on the picnic table overnight and in the morning it is still there. Cost around $50. or so, I saw them recently at Ace Hardware. We cook steaks a couple of nights on one gas cylinder plus a little left over. I usually bring a 20# propane cylinder if we are going to be stationary for a few days. As for an awning, yes!

We have a 2-burner Coleman on collapsible scissor legs with wheels. We transport it in the back of the Expedition, no odors, though we keep it clean.
