I have a weber q 200.
Need to preheat solid "searing" plate for atleast 15 minutes - sear each side -1.5 mins then grill each side 1.5 to 2 mins
Cooks a great steak. Would like some more heat out if it. Has a safety device that often plays up and doesn't let gas thru ( I couldn't use the 10ft hose from the coach because of this ( a known problem)

We also have an electric tabletop grill we bought when in Texas and there was a ban on grilling outdoors at the National CGs.

I'm with you. Bought a $29 gas grill at Walmart. Works great. Big enough for two steaks.

It has a metal shield between the burners and the grill which provides some smoke for flavoring when the steak starts dripping a bit.

At home I do the skillet to sear the surface of the steaks and then into the oven @ 325 with a remote reading thermometer for correct doneness.

Usually use Sam's Club cryo-packed Beef Tenderloin at $5.99 to $10.99 per pound. Remove the chain (the very fatty section along the length of the tenderloin) cut out small chunks of beef from it and use the small end of the tenderloin for more chunks - makes great stew, stroganoff, etc. Cut the tenderloin into 2" steaks. Flavorful, fork tender, and pretty inexpensive.

I have a Baby Q 120. Its a 100 with the shelves and I have a 5# propane cylinder. I have had it for 5 years on the coach. As was said before, you need to preheat the cast iron grill prior to cooking on it. I take mine apart every spring and use the power wash wand at the car wash to clean it. I cook steaks, fish, brats, vegies, etc. I use a small stainless steel basket for the vegies and had a cedar board for fish. I have a big weber at home and will replace it with a Q200 when it bites the dust.

Weber Q100 with hose and the T into main propane tank. Love that Baby Q. I have a 3 burner Weber at home but many times I'll pull the Q from the bay if I'm only cooking for the 2 of us. I've gone the route of the Walmart el cheapo units and they last a while and quit or rust out. I connect the Q to a 20lb tank if when I use it at home. I purchased the Q online for a decent price. Weber stands behind their product.

My first Weber for home is 22 years old. I have replaced the "Flavorizer bars" and the burner tube set, it works like new... You're not replacing a Weber because it bites the dust anytime soon

Being in the minority, with no excess of storage space I did quite a bit of research to locate a nice propane grill that would fit in my limited storage space. It was inexpensive and easy to clean...very important for me!

I wrote up an article about the selection process...I was looking at Charcoal, gas, and other fuels. Lots of folks have a preference....

You can read it at:

I've been pretty happy with my choice so far...

We carry two.

Our primary is an 18" charcoal weber with short legs and a carry handle. I have added bottom vents and an ash catcher to increase its heating capability. We have been using the Weber charcoal kettle grills since 1978 (only 2 grills in that time at home).

The back up is the blue Coleman Road trip we have had for 8 years. This grill is propane fired and has exchangeable grates for grilling, frying or pan cooking. It makes a good campstove/grill combo. But, it is not good for BBQ.

Since we do not do much outdoor cooking except for BBQ, the Coleman may go away and a $30 propane weber grill will travel in its place so we can do steaks etc where charcoal is prohibited.

We use a camp chef pro 90 with grill, skillet, griddle, pot, and such add ons. But then again, we cook for a minimum of 6 people every meal.

The small propane Weber with the hose adapter to hook it up to a 20lb bottle. Works great when cooking for 2-4 people. If you're going to feed a bunch then go big
