Hmm. Seems to work pretty good for us. Easy set up, does the job.

I just pull the burner deflector out and slap it on the ground.
All the charred stuff comes right off.

I do use a good spray degreaser and pressure wash it evry once in a while also.

We use a Lodge Logic Hibachi-Style Grill. It's a little small, but cooks quickly and efficiently. The cast iron gives the food a good "sear".

I've seen them at Bass Pro Shop. Cabella's probably has them too.

I bought mine at a local LP gas company that sells equipment, parts, and LP gas.

I did the same. Have not tried it yet. How does it work?

I have a Weber Q220...my new TT came with one but I like the Weber better. It's large enough to make my camp Nachos in)

We have the weber Q100. Seems to go a long way on the 1 pound tank and is just big enough for the two of us. I like that its small enough to put in the storage hatch when i'm done with it. Haven't ruled out getting the extension hose for the quick disconnect and it sure gets hot enough to cook anything but was wondering if it would still put out the same heat on the tt connection.

Why wouldn't it put out the same amount of heat running off the TT? If you decide to run it off the trailer plug-in (which is regulated at 11" w.c.) you'll have to remove the high pressure regulator/control knob on the grill where the disposable cylinder screws in. Then you connect your hose to the trailer and you should be in business. The only way to change the heat output is to change the orifice size, given the pressure remains the same.

I have a $5 Rhino reduced-for-quick-sale down from $40 grill from Lowes. It was missing the regulator/control knob...how perfect was that? I simply added the correct size orifice to the burner pipe, a quarter turn valve to throttle the gas and a long hose with a male connector to plug into the 23B. Works like a charm!!

I guess there's no reason then to think it shouldn't operate any different with the hose. I am aware that you can only operate with one regulator in the system. When i bought the weber i brought it to the rv dealer and asked about the extention hose and he said it won't fit on the weber. If i get fed up with the bottles maybe i'll check out one of the lp dealers to see what they can do.

Bigbird I got all the parts I needed for the quick connect adapter at BBQ country here in Edmonton, I am sure any parts dept at any BBQ specialty store will have what you need. Just make sure you tell them it's for an RV, I think they are pretty standard for all RV's. They should be able to make up a nice long hose for you at the same time to go along with it, I have a 15' hose for mine. Then all you need to do is remove the regulator from the BBQ (kinda a pain) and screw the new quick connect adapter in. Make sure you use the Teflon tape meant for gas on the threads and leak test it before you light it. It is very handy.

Thanks jayco 228. I had removed the regulator to give him a get look at the size and your right it was on their pretty tight. One other thing i like about the weber is how clean it stays with that removable foil drip tray. Found a pack at the dollar store and most times you just have to wipe them out.

Old thread still going strong. On my Antigua I went with the RVQ and while convenient, it was NOT the best grill to use and I ended up selling it and replaced it with a Weber Q100. The Q100 seemed to just heat things and it took a long time to actually grill. While in Lake George a couple years back, the Coleman outlet had a great price on the Coleman Roadtrip LX grill and I am so glad that I picked one up. It has a lot of heat, and while not easy to clean, it cleans up well. The grill plates can be replaced with griddle plates or hot plates. With the stand and case, it's really a nice little package.

I recently purchased the Pioneer Campfire Grill (www.campfiregrill.com), specifically the Pioneer model. It is very well made. I've come to really enjoy cooking over a wood fire.

5Arnold that looks like a nice grill and adjustable height to. Even for the added cooking area its something I might look into.

we just use a cheapie $30 portable gas grill from wally world. We just clean it after each use and keep it out of the rain. going on 3 years now with no probs. Just cant justify buying a almost $200 stainless one that does te same thing.

I use a portable propane grill, preferably under $40.00- They last about 3 years before burnout- The most expensive grill I ever had needed replacement parts after 3 years- The needed parts cost almost as much as the grill- Lesson learned- I probably grill 2 or 3 nights a week so we get good use of the grill- JHMO- DD

Just picked up a Q220 based on this thread. I tested it with some country style ribs. All I can say is this is one investment I'm glad I made. What an outstanding grill.
