The Volcano Grill

Just about ready to pull the trigger on a Volcano grill. I don't want to drag my Weber around in the mh and this looks like a great little unit. Especially like the dutch oven capability as I use my dutch oven a lot.
So I thought I would run it by the membership here to see if someone can give me some first hand experience reviews.

Looks interesting and only 18 pounds. We use a portable Weber Q grill and that thing weighs 30+ pounds. Keep us posted if you do get one.

I have one but I think I have only used it twice - just laziness at learning something new. I will look forward to seeing what others think too.

I got a $50 Amazon gift card burning a hole in my wallet so I'm going to spring for this along with a Magma cookware set. Spring isn't that far away (hopefully) so it may be a little while before I get to use it. I have been spending the winter spreading out the cost of outfitting the new to us mh.

But I will post about my first impressions when it arrives and when I use it.

We have a Cobb grill (the smaller one). Works very well.

Shoot, I've been known to shovel a path to the grill just to use the BBQ at home!

I'm a avid griller and wood fired smoker and I'm with you I don't let winter stop me from doing either. I will surely give this unit a test run before our first camping trip. I'm interested in finding out how it works with the dutch oven. Dutch oven cooking is very specific about the number of coals needed on the top and the bottom of a dutch oven to achieve a specific temperature.

I have one. I use it mainly for grilling and it works great. i haven't tried it for anything more elaborate than grilling so I can't speak to how the dutch oven part works. Works great for steaks, burgers, pork chops, chicken, etc.

I have had a Volcano for several years, bought it especially for the MH because of its compactness and ability to use charcoal, wood or propane. It mostly get used for griling although I have done some DO cooking and have used the propane burner on a number of occasions. It is not large but last week-end I grilled three large T-Bones with ease. I would suggest getting the full set that includes the propane kit and Kevlar cover both very handy to have. It is a little messy to store in the bag after a while so I just use a small plastic tub to store it.

All I can say is if this one wears out I will buy another.

I have one I'd gladly sell you if we lived close!

For me (5'1" woman), that thing is a chunk to carry around. The worse part, for me, is dumping it. UGH - it's so heavy and awkward. The 18# does not include the stuff for the gas hook up.

Sounds like what you need is a RV with a pull out BBQ center! Perfect solution.

Thanks for the welcome!

I have all the trailer I can handle - dang WD bars are 17 lbs EACH. So, I'll stick with my little Smokey Joe, which handles the DO and regular grilling pretty good.

Again, thanks for the welcome! Stay Warm...not so easy in the mid-south lately! Brrrrrr...

One of the best RV's we ever owned was a 1978 Starcraft Pop Up trailer with the swing out kitchen. We traveled many many miles crisscrossing this beautiful country with the girls in that thing. Then the girls grew up and started their own lives so we decided on getting a 35 foot motorhome! Funny the motorhome seems small to the two of us now! I guess I will continue to lug that 40 pound Weber grill out from time to time. Maybe I can come up with a Pete's special BBQ hydraulic lift to help these old bones when it comes time to grill! Yea, that will give me something to do while I wait for this 16 inches of snow to melt!
