Outdoor grill

Has anyone installed a custom grill in a outside compartment that just slides out? Or what is everyone doing for grill storage and use?

I have a outdoor kitchen that slides out. Threw away thie grill that came with coach and got a q2000 weber. Cast alum and hols heat well. Plugs in and runs off coach propane. Very easy to keep clean. Use the kitchen for sink and fridge mostly. If you are really into grilling spend the doe on the weber. Have spent stupid money on built in grills at homes that look great but don't cook we'll. weber genisis at home and on the dock. I also got the folding cart that it plugs into. They last forever----- almost. Good luck! JD

We also use the small portable Weber grill and love it. Have a larger one at stick and brick home. Never had a built in grill but wonder about ease of cleaning and the grease build up from the smoke.

Bought the Colemen and hated it. Worst grill we ever owned. It is more of a 2 burner stove than a grill. Pain to clean and heavy to handle

We use the table top one they sell at Costco. Had it for 3yrs, works just fine. The price is around $100.00. Plumbed into the RV LP tank. Not to heavy to move around stores nicely in one of my smaller outside bays.

Road Trip Grille

I also have a love hate relationship with my Road Trip Grille. Love the way it cooks for the most part (have grill, flat top and range adapters) Don't like the way it burns anything sticking over the edge of the grill and hate the clean up.

Thanks Nuts

Easy to set up, take down and pack, although would not be considered light in weight by many. Greater lid height and usable cooking surface than most portable grills in our experience.
We installed a kit with proper fittings and 12' hose to connect the grill to the coach ASME propane tank rather than carrying a separate LPG cylinder.

No matter what you chose , remember BTUs , 18>20,000. BTUs or you won't be able to cook a thing, you'll just be warming it slightly.

In 20 years ; 5 RV's ; 3 Broil King port-a-chefs , I have been able to cook steaks in a snow storm; still fight with the DW about, having to do that; remember size ( BTUs ) does matter.

I use the Weber Q1000. The smaller version of the Q2000 mentioned above. I have a small family, so the space savings is a value for me. I originally bought one of those typical table top grills at sears, and it lasted for about 6 months before it started to give me issues. Uneven cooking, etc. So I use a Weber at home (Genesis 320), therefore I bought a Weber for the trailer.

On a side note, they have a rolling cart available for the q series. Its around $69. But I think it takes up too much space in the RV storage. I found a package deal at WalMart for the Q1000 and a folding stand where the legs snap in. It takes up maybe one quarter the space, and does the same job. It takes less than 5 minutes to assemble when I get to the campsite. It is worthwhile for me to keep the table space free.

Also as far as fuel, I dont have an outdoor kitchen in my TT, so I use a 20Lb propane tank like you use in your home BBQ. I have a propane tree. I top that with a lantern. And use the two middle connectors for the Weber, and the other one if I break out my coleman camp stove. But the tree provides the conversion from the 20LB tank to the small fittings on the stove and BBQ. The lantern screws right into the top of the tree, which handy. It lights up my whole campsite if i turn it up, and provides a nice low glow when I turn it down. Its something I used all the time as a tent camper, so when I got into the RV thing, I added it to my setup right away. I dont see anyone else using them at the campsites.

I've been really happy with my outdoor cooking setup.
