Nope your not the only odd-ball. I have the $30 charcoal grill from Wal-Mart too and really enjoy firing it up with the hickory soaked wood chips to add to the flavor. If it wasn't so cold outside right now I would be grilling now

Weber Q120 here...5 years old and still going strong. Modified it to use with the trailer's low pressure quick connect so unless the rig runs out of propane, I'm always good to go. Easy to do with the Q series, remove the regulator and add the quick connect fitting in its place. I also put a quick connect fitting on the regulator and can "quick connect" the regulator back on and use a 1 lb can if I want to take the grill with us on a picnic away from the campsite.

Cooks well, heats evenly and cleans up well. The only thing it was missing was a thermometer. I got a generic thermometer, drilled a hole in the top and now I've got a thermometer for those things that need to "simmer" for a while at a given temperature.

Where did you get the quick connect fitting for the regulator fitting? I had the hardest time finding the right way to make everything work. I still can't hook into the trailers' quick connect.

The low pressure fittings used by the RV industry are the MB Sturgis 250 series. I get all of my fittings from:

1/4" Model 250 Quick Connects - Quick Connects & Plugs

I had some fittings floating around the shop from some other projects and I used them to extend the male on the grill for additional clearance for the regulator that quick connects back onto that stub.

They also sell the hoses, I've got 1x4', 2x10' and 2x12', for my Weber and my Campfire-In-A-Can and they have the "dust caps" for both the female and male fittings if you want them. Just make sure that you get the "low pressure" 250 series. The quick connects, unless side-by-side, all "look" the same, but, there are minute differences to keep you from using the wrong type on the wrong application.

Here's what the adapted grill looks like:



and here is what the lid looks like with the thermometer installed:

If you like your steaks rare or medium rare then I recommend the Char-broil 2Go X200 Infra-red grill. I just bought one after looking forever for a grill hot enough to cook the meat fast with a good charing and leave the inside rare. It gets to 600 degrees quickly and did the steaks perfectly. I will likely use it at home for steaks instead of my patio grill. It's well built and looks good. Char-Broil Grill2Go X200 - Model 12401734 - Grill2GoŽ - Gas Grills - Grills

Good luck,
Dave

We just bought a cheaper than Webber walmart brand that folds and fits nicely in the basement. DH hooked into the main propane tank so when we want to grill, we just hook up, turn a valve and cook. We feel more comfortable with that set up than with separate tank. We have a line that allows us to grill well away from awning and MH.

Weber seems to be the choice of many. I have probably gone through at least 3 other brands ( one even stainless steel ) and all failed in short time. The Weber came with a nice fold up stand thats very solid and I went with the new 20 pound propane tank made of poly and is 50% lighter than steel tanks and you can see the propane level.

We've got the Coleman Roadtrip and are pretty pleased with it going on 3 years now. Have considered upgrading, but wasn't sure which way to go until I just now saw the Char-Broil that Dave pointed out. Our home grill is a Char-Broil Big Red, 4 burner, also infrared. I've never had or seen any grill that cooks better than this beast. I'm book marking the page to the Grill2Go. Thanks Dave!

The Margaritaville Grill was made by Freedom. Freedom went out of business. I was able to find a new one on eBay..,,keep looking they do occasionally show up. Just found a Freedom cover and the extension hose that converts to a 20 gallon tank on Amazon. The grill does a nice job and swings out to use.

For me, its a Weber Q all the way. Ours is a 200 series and I like it better than my $1400 Vermont Castings BBQ at home. Fast, even cooking!

If you do a search at the top, you will find a whole host of replies to your question.

Wife and I balked at the price of the Weber Q100 for the RV. After we got it, she liked it so much we bought one for the house also.
