We prefer to carry a Green Mountain Davey Crockett pellet smoker. Makes fantastic smoked meats. Before that, we had a Weber Q. There is no comparison in the flavor of the food. The pellet smoker wins out every time.

Exactly what I bought. Works great. I had the smaller one which did fit a bit better in the storage areas, but there were times it was just not big enough.

I also carry a small Coleman just in case we have to cookout in the rain. Does well under the awning. Prefer charcoal.

For charcoal and for two a Smokey Joe. Have a container that holds it, the starter chimney and the charcoal.

When in no burn areas a $35 LP grill tall enough to cook a chicken is great. Not all are tall enough to cook a squash or chicken. Mine was end of year sale at Mennards. It folds up into one package with a handle on top. Goes into another container with extra 1lb tanks. My first cheap LP grill I bought in the Dawson Creek Walmart. It lasted about seven years. By then I knew I wanted something taller.

I really think past the Weber kettle the Smokey Joe was their greatest idea.

I reckon we have all taken some sort of evolutionary path through the grilling dilemma. We started in our PU with a Colman Roadtrip. Worked ok but man is it heavy and awkward. DW insisted she wanted Weber Smokey Joe so...we carried both along with a starter chimney. When we got back into the RV scene with the MH and after dragging the Coleman Roadtrip out of a bay a few times I had had enough. Bought a Weber Q1200. Much better. In addition I installed a "T" in the propane line of the MH which has a 12 foot hose. No more storage of those little gas btls.

DW wants to replace the charcoal starting chimney with lighter fluid. Likes the smell. Reminds her of her childhood. You can take the girl out of the country but...

We also use a Weber Q. I asked around when trying to figure out which grill to get, and it seemed to be the most popular gas grill. I've been very happy with it.

We like our Weber Q. I also like some items cooked over charcoal better. May have to get a Weber Smokey Joe too. Of course, have to find a place to store it first.

I got a black stone 36" griddle this summer to use up at the lake. It's to big to take traveling. So ordered their 17" model. Should be here next week. Anything you cook on a grill , you can prepare on the flat top griddle.

Outdoor grills

We use a Napolean "Q". It's round with a low dome shape. Easy to store, great grill space, fairly wide cast grates. It's been used for 6yrs now and still going strong. Click image for larger version

There probably isn't a wrong answer ....

You do need to think about how you will use your grill.

1) Will you be cooking for a group or just 2 people?
2) Do you like propane or must it be wood, charcoal, pellets, etc?
3) How hot does the grill need to be?
4) How long must the grill last?
5) Is price an issue?
6) Is weight an issue?
7) Is size an issue?
8) How tall an item will you cook (steak, a whole chicken, a turkey)?

You get the idea ... your answers will narrow the field.

For instance, I cook for 2 ... nothing tall (no whole chickens) .... I don't want a heavy grill due to storage in the basement .... I need fairly hot to sear a steak .... I want propane .... I won't spend more than $200 ... I don't want an integrated stand.

Looks like my O-grill .... suits me fine. I like the fact that it stores like a suitcase.

For gas use the Weber Q series. It is so good that I converted one for home use on a 20# bottle.

If you like charcoal or real smoking try the Weber Go Anywhere grill. I smoked a roast & a rack of ribs while camping.

Modify the grill like this:
