New grill???

Now that we're in an all electric coach and cannot run our behemoth 60,000 BTU Camp Chef grill off of the onboard propane, we're thinking of getting a new grill. We want something that runs on a 20# bottle as we've had camp grills in the past that ran on the little bottles, and we never seemed to get enough heat. Ideally we would want a grill that would sear a steak in pretty short order and we like to do 2-3 gallon crawfish and seafood boils when we're in those parts of the country. We've seen a lot of praise on here for the Weber Q series. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Also look at the smaller 10 lb. propane containers. Much easier to handle

I bought the Charbroil Tru Infrared portable grill for the rv. Talk about searing a steak. You have to learn grilling all over again or you will end up with something that resembles a burned leather sandal. I liked it so well, I bought another one for home, only a full sized one. I use a portable #10 tank for the rv, but also have a pounder or two for back up. These grills will deliver very intense heat even on the small pound bottles.

This set-up has served us well....... love the "free standing" option(can be used on table also without the stand.

Try a Magma Grill with a 10 Lb. LP bottle! Works like a charm and will not blow out!!

You know about Camp Chef, you need to look at the Camp Chef Sports Grill. Better than Weber

Will it sear a steak. Temp after 2 minute warmup. I did enlarge the gas orifice a small bit by drilling it out some. What fun is a stock anything? Now it is a high performance steak searing machine. Does not blow out in the high winds of the Kansas plains. Will sear with the best of them, boil a pot of water, or slow cook mouth watering chicken on low.

We use a Baby Q hooked to a 20lb bottle. Home Depot has the conversion hose and the aluminum grease trays. Well built and easy to clean...has worked well for us for almost 3 years - it gets a work out.

Good test... I do wish they included that temp gage on the Baby Q.

X2.

My 30 year old grill at home and I replaced it with a Charbroil Tru Infrared grill. Wow! Definitely the best grill I have ever used. The infrared grilling does take a little getting used to, there are never any flare-ups and even when slow cooking something like a 5 lb. rib roast, the meat never dries out.

The only reason that I haven't ditched my nice, 1 year old portable grill and replaced it with the Charbroil Grill2Go, is that it won't fit in the space where I am currently storing my grill. Unfortunately, the legs on it don't fold up

I'm not a huge fan of our Q. I use a Big Green Egg at the S&B, so I may be a little bit spoiled, though. I have trouble getting the entire ring to light up. I've tried cleaning it with a wire brush and cleaning each individual hole with a toothpick. Still have issues occasionally. It also won't heat up as high as I would like it to for steak searing. May have to try to bore out the hole as described by a previous poster.
In all, it does an adequate job, just not as good as I had hoped. But I'll keep it until they come up with a portable version of the BGE.
