Are you asking about grills? We have two in the basement storage: the Coleman "Roadtrip" gas grill and a baby Weber "Smoky Joe" charcoal grill. Both are excellent and take up minimal space. The Roadtrip has an adapter hose that allows using the onboard LP tank as well as normal gas grill LP and the small LP canisters.

I have a Weber Smokey Joe charcoal grill and a Weber Baby Q gas grill and we like both. The Smokey Joe is a too small when we feed more than than the 3 of us. Baby Q also is small, but cooks considerably more than the charcoal grill.

i like these sort of questions
you'll get the usual 50-50-50 split (150% ?), and all ideas are fun and good !

we also put in our suggestion for the Coleman "Roadtrip" grill

you can grill steaks and make pancakes at the same time
and i like the little water basin that surrounds the grill area. people tend to look at you with a different eye when you are camping and you pour a little red wine in that basin to help impart a lovely aroma to the grilling burgers

I have a Weber Baby-Q for the camper. I love it. See it at http://www.campingworld.com/browse/s...27204&src=SRQB . Don't bother trying to find a discount price on it, Weber controls the pricing very closely. The CW member price is the normal selling price everywhere else.

I also have a 5 lb LP tank and adapter hose for it.

If I had a "big" motorhome, I would forget the wimpy little grills and get a Webver Genesis Silver/ Three burners - you can really COOK with this thing.It is the only thing I miss after we went fulltine.

We have the Weber Q gas grill with the accessory wheeled stand, and the adapter so we can tap into our onboard LP tank.

I like the size... can grill meat and also veggies at the same time. Only thing I would like better is if it had separate burners on each side instead of one burner ring around the entire grill.

I've been coveting a Baby Q for a while. I like to slow-cook (chicken, ribs, roast). Most grills are too hot for this. Is the Baby Q "not too hot" on low setting?

We have the George Forman 24 inch ( I think its that big). Just plug it in and cook. Easy clean up. It has a stand that come apart and real easy to stow in the bay. Not real fond of charcoal or boxed wine. s/Toby

We carry a Broil King Portable, which is a mid-size standard LPG BBQ grill with detachable legs. Plenty of cooking room and modest wait. We carry a 10 lb LPG bottle for it (and a few other gas accessories we use).

We also carry a 12 inch Pyromid charcoal grill, one of the "chimney" types that uses only 9 pieces of charcoal to grill steaks or chops for two people. LPG is convenient, but you can't beat real charcoal for flavorful steaks and chops! The tiny Pyromid cooks sets up in 2 minutes and can deliver steaks for two within 20-25 minutes after.

Hello Everyone:

Donna & I use the Holland Companion Holland Companion, which cooks using indirect heat and no flare ups and no burned food. We have used a Holland BBQ at home for years and it is the best BBQ I have owned.

We have a pop-up, but have had lots of different types of grills over the years. We carry the Road trip in the truck, its OK. My favorite for taste and ease, is the Keg-A-Que. It looks like a keg so when I set it on the table folks ask where I got the small keg, and what kind of beer is in it. When we camp , most times it is just the wife and I. A few small steaks and a couple potato's. we don't need a big grill.
