From a practical standpoint, those of us who boondock in the west are limited to propane grills because of restrictions on charcoal fires due to the drought. You can't have charcoal fires unless you're in a designated USFS campground in the Sierras. BLM has restrictions as well, but not outright bans.

I prefer charcoal, but I certainly understand the precautions being taken this year.

From the suggestions i will be packing both ! A small portable propane grill for back up use and the main grill to be charcoal . Then again the DW might have a say also !!!

It's just my wife and I and we have limited basement space. While I like like the flavor charcoal gives to meat We live on the west coast and so many areas prohibit the use of charcoal. When we pick up our unit it's going to have to be propane. I probably won't run off my RV tank. Hose length limits where I can place it. I will take my time snd find the right size unit for our motorhome. 4 burgers, or three steaks is a must. Good post with a lot of good ideas.

I prefer charcoal to propane. That said, I have propane on my motorhome. Start up is faster and I don't have to worry about disposing of the ashes, plus when I'm done I turn the valve off and the flame is gone. I don't have to sit and watch a charcoal grill cool down.

I use a propane grill and a 20lb bottle. We use it every day ... can't be bothered with charcoal ... and far easier to regulate the temperature.

We started out with charcoal but switched to gas - wanted rotisserie so I bought a grill at lowes - removed the base - added short legs and long hose to the coach propane tank. Less stuff to store

Our coach is all electric, so no propane available. If it were, we would still prefer charcoal. We have a small cast iron rectangle one just big enough for four small pork chops. It must be 40 years old and fits nicely in a small bay. It just isn't camping if you don't have the smell of a charcoal grill cooking up a couple of steaks. Although, when I tell our youngest daughter we are "roughing it" when I light it up, she doesn't think sitting in a recliner waiting for the coals to turn white while watching a Packer game on the outside tv, is what she would call roughing it. But she's young, so what does she know?

+2, they are a great little smoker/grill plus you can order pellets from Amazon and have them delivered to where you are staying.

Real hickory and oak for me. Takes time, but... If I'm camping, I'm not in a hurry.

Charcoal and a smokey joe we carry a foreman grill to use in restricted areas it just rides along most of the time. Never could figure out how to slow cook on a gas grill ribs can't be rushed and must be smoked.

Slow cooking on one of the infrared propane grills is no problem. See my previous post in this thread. On mine, I cook a slab of ribs in bout 2-1/4 hours. Scattering a couple of hand fulls of wood chips onto the steel plate provides the smoke.
