First question from a new owner

We picked up our x23b this week and on the 29th we will take it to the campsite for the first time. We have a long checklist going and now we are at the grill.

The camper is set up for the outside wall mount and a propane quick connect below it. Any suggestions on which grill to use? It is my wife, three year old daughter and myself for now so any suggestions are appreciated.

A few questions that come to mind from us in the peanut gallery would be...

- Are you looking just to grill?
- Are you looking to use it as a griddle at times?
- Do you want it to attached to the rail that may be present on the side of your camper?
- Are you looking to cook on the picnic table or someplace other than next to the travel trailer?
- Do you want one that is small and designed to sit on a table or stand up or have the flexibility of doing either?

I'm sure there are others out there from peanut gallery land that may have other questions and/or the suggestion of a all-purpose grill for you.

One of my old popups had an indoor outdoor stove that you took outside and plugged in. Handy, but only one place to cook.

We currently have a butane stove that cost about $18. Very light weight one burner. Downside is expensive fuel. But really handy to cook at the picnic table, avoid grease smoke from bacon (ummm Bacon!) and hamburger inside. Also very handy to have boiling water for my morning cup, or 2, maybe 3?

Mine is like this one and has its own storage box. https://www.amazon.com/Camp-Chef-Mou...e+butane+stove

-We are looking to grill and cook bacon and other high smoke items outside.
-I was looking at the side mount but I am not against having a stand alone unit.
-Either is good, a table mount or stand alone with some beef to it. Right now I am open to anything and I hate buying something to upgrade it later so I'll learn from everyone else's experience on this.

We have a grill we bought at "Direct Tools". It is well made and folds easily for transport, The name I believe is "Stok", You can check it out on their website and I think they offer free shipping on orders over a certain dollar amount. You can also buy different inserts for the grill if you desire. Hope this helps.

We went with a Coleman Roadtrip grill. It's a little bulky for a tabletop but collapses from a freestanding position for use and has multiple cook surfaces options available for purchase (see pics). I'm in the process of creating a hose that will tap into the low pressure quick connect on my trailer so I don't have to rely on one pound propane cylinders. There are others here who use the Weber Q series grilles. The Blackstone mentioned above also looked interesting and had good reviews but my wife wanted the versitility the Coleman offered with its various cook surfaces.Click image for larger version

We use a Weber Q, I removed the regulator from it and added a quick connect to use the trailer gas supply from the onboard quick connect. It’s a nice little grill.

We also have a Charbroil “Grill2Go” portable infrared grill that does an outstanding job! However, it is difficult to clean and you have to clean it after every use or it will smoke excessively. It reaches up to 500 degrees.

Most people seem to use the Coleman Roadtrip or the Weber Q.

Camp Chef is another option if you're looking at a sturdy (but bulky) freestanding unit. They offer two and three burner models, with multiple cooking surfaces including a griddle, grill box, pizza oven, and more. They also sell the gas line to connect their grills to the trailer's quick connect gas port (although most quick connect hoses will work).

I use a Camp Chef 30 Single burner hooked to my propane quick connect with 10 foot of hose. I have a griddle I place on top for griddle food. If we fry just remove the griddle and use the burner by itself. Works great and breaks down for storage. I'm not sure if that's the type your interested in. Got all the fittings to make it a quick connect at Lowes.
