Default Best portable gas BBQ

Hello Fun finders!

We are looking for the best gas grill to hook on the LP gas output on the side of our Shadow Cruise 185FBR. Don't want the one with the HP small propane tank...

Any ideas?

We've had one of these since 1989 and it works great. it is about 1/2 the size of the one that came with our FF.

Since our moho didn't have an external propane fitting---the first thing i did was go to AmeriGas with my Control/Regulator and had them remove the bottle fitting and replace that with a 5' hose assembly to connect to a regular refillable propane bottle--in my case a 1/2 lb. If i wanted to connect it to the fitting on my FF, i could just replace the propane bottle fitting with the mate to FF fitting.

I personally prefer a small bottle, so when the picnic table is 30' away--i can put the bar b on it. I do have very small stand for use when there are no tables.

I think most RV Parts stores have the fittings/adapters and hose to connect your bar b to the FF fitting.

There are a lot of grills for use with the quick disconnect low pressure LPG line... There are some designed for use with bottles of LPG that can be converted for use with the quick disconnect line; myself and a lot of others swear by the Weber Baby Q series of grills. I use a Weber Baby Q120 in my 210WBS. The Weber Q series of grills have the regulator as a separate assembly from the gas control valve. Simple matter of removing the regulator, substituting a male quick disconnect and then getting a hose to hook them together. I have a 4' and a 12' hose for mine. I don't like cooking under the awning and use the 12' most of the time for moving the grill out from under the awning. If the weather is poor (raining), I use the 4' line and stay under the awning just so I don't waste gas filling a 12' line. I also use a LPG Campfire in a Can and can hook my 12' grill line to its 10' gas line and have the Campfire in a Can some 22' from the trailer.

A lot of folks will use a grill designed for bottles and get an Extend-a-stay kit that hooks directly to the bottles on the front of the TT, but, mine are covered and it seemed silly to have to remove the covers every day just to use the grill when I had a low pressure port sitting right there for running a grill...

My 2 cents, your mileage may vary...

Weber Q series are a great grill. Made in America! I've got the larger model (I think it was a 220) By removing the lid it will fit under the bench when travelling.

Default LPG Grill

I have to agree with webslave.
I have had a Weber Q for two season and love it.
I also bought the cast iron griddle for it. Great for breakfast and other things.
I bought a T connector for one of my mounted 30 Pounders and a 25ft hose to connect to the Q. It works great.
Have a great summer
