Important stuff- The Grill..

The wife and I just bought our first motorhome. It's a 98 Itasca Sunrise. I imagine we'll update/upgrade or just change once we figure out what we like and what we don't, but this will be our second home for at least a year of weekends and holidays.

We got a good deal on this fixer upper of a motorhome, even after the 6 grand we sunk in it afterwards and we're ready to hit the road next week for our first trip. As yet though, I haven't figured out one of the most important things. The grill. Obviously, the Big Green Egg can't come with us. Does anybody have any advice on a good portable grill or smoker?

If I put this in the wrong place, I apologize. I'm new here.

Howdy and welcome. I just have to ask...did you serve on the Danville train?? Let's see some pics of the new RV!!

We carry a small charcoal grill with us, but many times use the grills in the campgrounds.

Well I did it cheaply, till I decide to up grade. Just got small Weber. I think it's 18" Dia. Round. I use two bungy cords to keep it closed and keep it in a garbage bag. I also use a metal starter chimney, the kind you add coals and a few news paper pages under to get the coals started. Works for us.

Went to Lowes and spent $25 on a small (6 hamburger pattie) grill. It uses small throw-away propane bottles. One bottle cooks many hamburgers. Will have to throw it away after 4-5 years, but will have gotten our money's worth.

We have two on board; propane we hook to the coach and 18" Webber charcoal. I can't remember the last time we used the propane as we love the Webber so much! Spend an extra $10 and purchase a charcoal chimney to start the charcoal!

I went with the O-grill from camping world. I like the way it stores. Bought the extended protection as well since I had a discount coupon and it was on sale as well. Was close to buying one of the weber q's and have several friends who really like them.

I still have some more work to do before picture time and despite my name I've never been on a train. We're Band fan's though!

Sounds like the little Weber might be the ticket. I've had a big Weber charcoal grill before and it was pretty awesome.

Thanks for the replies!

Hmm. I'd never heard of the O Grill. It looks promising too. I'd have to learn how to cook with gas again, but sometimes quicker is better, right?

Thanks!

You know they have a mini green egg, travel size. Don't know the price.

I thought about that too. It's about $600 for a 10" smoker. It weighs about 40 lbs. We might wind up with that eventually, but until we figure some things out it might be a tad unweildy.

I love the Egg though.

I just bought the Weber Jumbo Joe.

Amazon.com: Weber 1211001 Jumbo Joe Gold Charcoal Grill, 18-Inch: Patio, Lawn & Garden

I should probably go ahead and get a propane grill too, just for the convenience of it.

Thanks all!

Full disclaimer here, I am a grill snob. Have a Green Egg at the S&B, and will never have anything else (at least in a permanent location). I have the Weber Q-200 in the RV and, frankly, I am underwhelmed. I have trouble getting all the outlets in the ring to light, and then it seems I cannot get the grill as hot as I would like it. However, it is adequate for what I use it for and doesn't take up a ton of space.
There is at least one guy on here who has a Traeger pellet smoker that he travels with. Maybe he'll chime in. I'm not sure you can do a high-temperature sear with that, though.
