That's what I'm sayin'. With just me and DW most of the time, not cooking anything gourmet, I just couldn't see taking all the extra time, energy and mess for charcoal. Our baby Weber using disposable canisters (always carry a hose to hook into main tank if I need it) does great for us, fast and easy!

We have a older Coleman 3 burner converted to propane, and use a 5 year old Weber Q 100. Works for us

For now I am using the propane grill that came with the Greyhawk. When it wears out I'll look into other options. I like Weber grills and have one on the deck at home.

I'm using the grill that came with the GH31ss, not overly impressed with it but it does work and is easier than charcoal or the cast iron stuff. I'm wanting a Weber Q as well, maybe Santa will bring one. LOL

Cast Iron and the fire

We use a cast iron dutch oven for most of our cooking, and a cast iron griddle for the remaining food, a large stainless steel french press for coffee. All cooking is done over the fire, although we use the trailer stove to heat water for coffee. We do not do any cooking inside the trailer. For example, breakfast often consists of sausage cooked in the dutch oven, then stir in eggs and put either corn bread batter or biscuit mix on top. Veggies, such as onions, squash, and peppers can be fixed by seasoning, wrapping in aluminium foil, and roasted over the fire. We did corn that way for last Labor Day and it worked out well too.
