I agree with gresults,
We bought a cheapie gas grill from walmart for $35.00
Works great and even has a piezo ignition. I made an inside liner out of aluminum baking pans so I can replace it when the bottom gets too cruddy

Will the Baby Q hook up directly to your main tank in a motorhome with an extend-a-stay?

I have tried several over the years. I love my O-Grill, best investment I ever made.

Easy to store, easy to clean, and a drip tray that really works.

The really nice thing about the Weber "Q"s is you can get aluminum drip pan inserts that come in packs of 10. Home Depot has them and I suppose anyone that sells the Q will carry them. Very convenient and seeing how I'm so lazy and cheap, I line the inserts with aluminum foil. I can just slide the metal drip pan, with the insert, out and toss the foil...no muss, no fuss.

The heavy grate is very easily cleaned with a grill brush. Also, if I'm cooking something greasy, I just lift off the grate and do a quick wipe down with some paper towels on the inside surfaces after I've brushed down the grate.

I have a Ducane gas grill I've had for over 20 years at home and it is still in VG shape...if anything happens to it, I'll buy another 'Q', probably the larger one for home use. I wish all products were built this well... Bob

BTW, I don't use the optional fold up stand, the grill will NOT burn the top surface of the picnic table...even on it's highest setting. We sit the grill on top of the table cloth (plastic coated) and although some CGs do not allow this, once they see the plastic under the grill, they've never had a problem with it. We also use a 20 lb. LP tank with an adaptive hose (also from HD).

Here's another satisfied user of the Baby Q, going on 4 years. I use the folding stand and added the two folding wing shelves on the side. Last year I realized I can store the stand on a sort of shelf over the coach's propane tank ... talk about being happy finding some new storage space! I also use a 5lb external propane tank. It lasts quite a while and is easy to store.

One of the best features of this unit is it makes the best grill marks I've experienced with any grill I've owned, ever!!! Definitely worth the price of admission ... !

I have had this one since 2006. If you line the drip tray with aluminum foil it is much easier to clean than filling it with water.

However, this is truly a grill or a camp stove depending on your choice of grill inserts. Make pancakes, eggs, soup or a grilled burger.

The lid does not provide much dome space for covered cooking.

Since we prefer the covered slow cooking process for chicken, pork, turkey, beef roasts etc, we also carry a Weber charcoal grill for those events.

Have had our Baby Q for approx 6 years and it is great. Never a flare up when I use it, easy to clean and an even flame. If it ever "dies" I will replace it with another Q. Tried the cheap route, but found that they flare after a while, even when clean and have uneven heat at best.

I can even do decent baby back ribs on this grill.

Go Weber.

After using the cheapie versions for many years (never actually getting more than 2 seasons from one) we bought the Weber Q-200 (it's the 220 without the thermometer) and couldn't be happier.

Bought the adapter and run it off a standard grill tank.

We have had a the Webber Baby Q for 4 years. I bought the 5lb propane cylinder and refill the tank about every other season. The cast iron grill is great for steaks and chicken.You just need to preheat the grill for 5-8 minutes prior to placing the stuff on the grill. For veggies I use a basket and have used some cedar planking for fish. We also order some prepared items from these people Online Grocery Store & Food Delivery Service and all we have to do is warm them up on the grill (doesnt heat the coach up in the hot summer).

Evanne Schmarder at Evanne@RVCookingShow.com uses a Webber Q when she grills and has a lot of recipies for the grill.

I use a wire brush to clean the grill after each use and in the spring I dismantle the grill to clean the burners and also take the body of the grill to the car wash, using the pressure wash wand, for a through cleaning before the grilling season starts.

I got this one from Blue Rhino - what I liked about this one is that it has clasps that keep the top and bottom tightly closed when stored.
