I've been thinking about mods for my new trailer and was considering adding a pigtail with a cutoff to the propane setup to use an outdoor grill, but the more I think about it, a good rib-eye cooked over mesquite charcoal is really hard to beat. It's a hard choice, because the propane grill at home does 'em right also.

We bought our JayFeather used, and although it had the grill bracket and gas hookup, the actual grill was not included. We bought a very lightly used RVQ on ebay, and use it often. It is a relatively low output grill, but is fine for doing steaks, chops, fillets, or gas dogs for the two of us. If there was a crowd, we would need a bigger grill. We have an aluminum griddle that we can put on for bacon, eggs, pancakes, etc. It would be nice to have a burner, but ours doesn't have that option. It sits about 6" or more out from the side of the trailer, and so far heat has not been a problem.

We carry charcoal, and will use the fire pit if the campsite has one, but just don't want to use our limited storage for carrying a charcoal grill around.

Propane as good as briquettes? Youbetcha!!!

Make a small aluminum foil tray and place dry hickory chips or your favorite chips in it on the grill. A handfull should do. By the time your grill is warm enough to grill the chips are smoking and will provide wonderful flavor to the food!

I also don't want a grill close to the trailer. I went with the Weber Baby Q, teed off the low pressure side of my tanks and ran a line with quick connect and a shut off to the side of the trailer. I got a hose, I don't remember, either 10' or 12' and installed quick connects on it. I set the grill on a picnic table which is usually close to the trailer. If not, I set it on a folding TV tray that I carry for that purpose..

We have a RVQ that we got slightly used on eBay. It is OK, and handy as it comes in a nice storage bag, and hooks right up to the rail on the side of the trailer, but as noted above, it does not put out many BTU's. It works OK as a grill or with a griddle for the two of us, but if I was cooking for a family, I would want something with more guts.

CSGrills.com is a good source of information, and Cabela's also has a wide assortment of stoves and grills.

If you did not find one before....I have one I'd be willing to part with for a "reasonable price".

I "T"d off where the regulator hose connects with the black pipe and ran a copper line with a gas cutoff and quick connect to the side of the trailer. Picked up a 10'propane hose, attached the appropriate QC fittings on the hose and a Weber Baby Q grill after removing the regulator from the grill and that sits away from the trailer on a folding TV table from Walmart. Perfect..

The $200 Option is only available when purchased while in production. The RVQ sells for as much as $300.00 when purchased new.
