Propane grills for Class A's

this issue has probably been addressed, but given the poor search capability of IRV2, I am going to post now...............................I am looking for a portable propane grill for my class a.........looking at weber and coleman, mostly..............I like the weber, but the btu's are only around 8500.............compared to the coleman's 20,000, I think the weber would be weak at grilling a steak (example)................any thoughts.............I don't want one I have to mount to the rv, sitting on a table or a stand of its own would be fine....................thanks in advance..........looking to spend around $200......................

I've had several different grills but like the Weber the best. Currently using the small Q which does quite nicely for me.

I have the little red 2-burner Coleman. It's OK at best. It runs VERY HOT - even at gas levels low enough to barely keep lit, it's tough to cook meat right.

Smoke Hollow

We just bought a Smoke Hollow combination smoker/grill. Sits on the table top and cooks with propane. We carry a 5 Lb propane bottle, but it could be used off of our MH too.

Does a great job smoking AND grilling.

We've been using a Coleman Roadtrip from WalMart for the last year or so. At about 50 pounds it's a little heavy, but the folding stand has wheels that make it more manageable. Like OP, we use a 5 pound propane tank. Cooks fine.

I am also looking for a good portable propane grille to hook up to the RV. I read the reviews on the Weber and one of the nay sayers complained that it didn't cook hot enough. From his post it became clear to me that the propane was being double regulated. 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 own a FR Berkshire, and a regulator is not needed. If I wanted to connect it to the MH, I would buy a hose without the regulator and a quick connect on the other end. Not difficult at all.

I would post a photo, but it's asking for an http link to do it and I don't know how to do it via the editor.

Having not seen the Weber grill I didn't know h0w easy it was to pull the regulator. I know that many of the low end grilles have no way to physically remove the regulator and that is probably for safety reasons.

Hello Tm,
This is what I have:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I like it so far but have not used enough yet to really make a good review. Still using disposable bottles but planning on equipping for tie into MH LPG. I use as table top and do not have the stand with wheels.
Safe travels and happy grilling!

Cheers

I don't have exactly this same grill, but I think it is an update to the one I have. Gets good and hot and makes great steaks.

Also bought the hose and can hook it up to my onboard propane tank. Don't have to mess with those little bottles and worry that they are going to run out halfway through the grilling process.
