Look at the Char-Broil Grill2Go. Their "Tru-Infrared" design does a great job of cooking without drying out the food.

Thanks Joel, I didn't know Char Broil made a 'portable' infrared. I have a Char Broil 'tru-infrared' at home and it is the best grill we ever had. The grill I have is just a perfect size to fit into one of my bays but I'll have to look into that and see if it will fit. I'd rather have the infrared.

Another vote for the Charbroil Grill2Go. Runs up to 650 degrees on a fairly heavy gauge grate to sear steaks just the way I like. Here's a Portable Grill2GoŽ X200 to the Char Broil page that talks about it but I get mine from Amazon. Actually, this is the second one I've had. Had a problem with the regulator and Char Broil sent me another one (on warranty)... but I had already bought an entirely new one. So, now I have two.

One cautionary note: This grill will not do low heat... if you need to do something low and slow, this grill is not for you. If you want to char on the outside and med rare on the inside, this is it!

Here's a review of the Weber Q2200, from the Product Evaluations forum:

Love our Weber Q 1200 grill, and no problems searing a steak. I think most of the higher BTU/hr output grills have correspondingly larger grill surfaces. Not necessarily more "sear" power per unit surface area. They also go through propane faster and take up more space. We like the smaller grill, which works well for 2-4 people, and lasts forever with our 1 gallon propane tank.

Would recommend Weber with folding aluminum cart. Both fit nicely in the bay. Have had a couple Coleman's and found the the grill grates didn't hold up. The Weber has an easy to clean grate and base and so far (after two years) is showing very little wear. Oh yeah, it cooks steaks, ribs, chicken and can even smoke if you configure it correctly. Good luck on your choice.....

Have this grill with folding stand, love it. Read lots of reviews this is highly rated. Small, but have cooked 10 burgers at once.

I use one of the Weber Go Anywhere propane units. Only two or three of us so no need for a big fancy one.

I have had no less the 4 or 5 propane grills in the last 25 years. Some better then others. I much prefer coal or wood to cook if allowed and time is not an issue. I have since moved away fro propane to an electric griddle. One side ridged for meat and the other flat for pancakes etc., can be used inside or out. If boondocking dinner hour is about time to charge the batteries so running the gen for 1/2 hour is fine. Less mess, easier to deal with, multi use and I have found cooking the meat to the perfect temperature is easier with the consistent heat. Not for everyone I know, but it works for me and a lot less hassle.

In other words he was coming off the low pressure side of his RV regulator and the grill had a regulator on it as well.

I know that my grille connection tee and valve are on the low pressure side and i will not need a gas regulator on what ever grill I purchase.

With that in mind what have others done?
I installed a T after the regulator on the RV. I then installed a gas valve to the T with a quick disconnect to run to the BBQ. The gas valve is used to shut off the propane to the disconnect. On the BBQ I removed the regulator and installed another quick disconnect. Purchased a gas hose and installed quick disconnects to the ends. The grill I purchased was a Weber Q. No problem with heat.
