Looking For a New Grill

Hi all, I'm looking for a new portable table top grill that I can hook to the port on the gas line that goes into the trailer. The grill I have uses the small propane bottles that are a nusieance. (sorry I can't spell it) and it's heavy. Any suggestions?

Check out the "O Grill". Light and easy to carry. I replaced a Weber Q grille with the O and love it. The Weber was too difficult to store for my liking.

The Weber Q grill is great, and it can be connected to the quick-connect if you convert it to low pressure. The only issue is that the Q is too big to store inside the Airstream, so it ends up in your two vehicle.

To convert, remove the regulator and replace with these parts. If you don't remove the regulator, your pressure will be too low as the gas is double-regulated:
  • Camco 57282 10' Propane Quick-Connect Hose
  • Watts LFA734 Female Pipe Coupling, 1/4-Inch x 1/8-Inch FIP
  • Camco 59903 Propane Quick-Connect Fitting - 1/4" NPT x Full Flow Male
  • PTFE Gas Line Pipe Thread Tape, Premium Grade, 1/2", Yellow

Weber Q-1200

After researching it to death, I'm getting a Weber Q-1200 with side shelves that fold up and under the cover. It's a small grill so the shelves are small but nicely designed. If you are trying to save $30 or $40 then you might like the Weber Q- 1000 w/o shelves. They come in a wide assortment of colors. If you don't like the little propane bottles, you can buy a hose to connect to the bigger tanks on your AS. But personally, I'm going to start out with the small bottles and see how it goes. I read you can buy 4 for $13 at Lowes. It'll be like using a cordless drill vs my old plug-in drill that has a long cord I have to drag around.

Weber Q 1200. I carry a 2.5 gallon propane tank for it. I keep a couple of the spin on cylinders just because. I store these items in the bed of my truck.
I have found that using a propane hose with a POL fitting (Put ON Left) works better than hoses with the large black Acme nut.

You can also buy a $13 adaptor from Walmart and refill those little bottles from larger tanks.

Weber Q 1000. Everything is a compromise, but we are happy with it.

I bought the Weber Q grill on sale from Home Depot, plus 10% off for being a Vet. I love it. I bought a 4 pack of the one pound bottles from Home Depot (+10% off). I also bought an adapter to refill the small propane bottles, the adapter is the Mr. Heater Propane One Pound Tank Refill Adapter, from Amazon. It works great. I picked up some empty one pound bottles at a campground, so I now have about 6 one pound bottles that I refill. This system works great for me.

I have a Coleman propane BBQ/Stove in a kinda suitcase container. I hardly ever use the stove part, but the BBQ works well, partly due to the aluminum grill on it that really spreads the heat.
I too do NOT like those STOOPID 'throw away' one pound containers, so...........
I purchased a 5 lb. refillable tank, and a connection hose.
One fill was $7.00 (in Canada), and lasted me for two and a half years; as opposed to those $5.00 'cans' which last for one or two meals.
That one fill-up paid for the cost of the upgrade.

I suggest the Weber Q1200, rather than the 1000. The 1200 has a temperature gauge that's quite handy. Also, the fold-up "wings" on the 1000 and 1200 are just a problem waiting to happen. If you light the stove without remembering to fold them out, it's a bear to get the melted plastic off the grill surface. DAMHIK. Just remove them before your first use--they're too small to be of much value, anyway.

I have the NXR that I bought from Costco before they understood what it was worth. I re-plumbed it so I can hook it up to the propane port on the Airstream. That and my portable induction cooktop are my go-to outdoor cooking heat. Love them both.
