Outdoor cooking for X23B

I have a X23B with an outdoor grill. However, I do most of my cooking on the indoor stove top. I find it easier, when using pots and pans, to cook over individual elements instead of a BBQ style long element/burner. Is there an outside cooking option (with individual elements) for use outside of the trailer? It would be nice to enjoy the great outdoors while cooking. I know I could just get a simple coleman stove, but I was wondering if there was an option to use a similar appliance that attaches to the trailer and its gas supply.

Thanks for any assistance,

First of all - welcome to the Forum! If you have a chance, come on over to the new member forum and introduce yourself.


There are several models of outdoor stoves that have mounting kits so they "hang" on the side of the trailer. I am not sure about the X23B, but many of the Jayco trailers have a stub underneath the trailer that allows for you to hook up gas appliances. If it does not, often times you can find a propane dealer that can do the work for you at a reasonable rate.

Personally I don't cook outside enough to make that worthwhile to me on a cost front. I have a portable two burner coleman propane stove that I just take out to the picnic table. Good price and multipurpose. I also refill my 1 lb cylinders so it does not cost me any more than running off the trailer propane.

I have a 39,000 btu propane burner (round) that I got from Northern Tool. I use a long propane hose with a QD on the end to plug into the 23B's outdoor gas line. That lets me do my cooking outdoors and away from the trailer. Otherwise you get bacon grease/smoke on the trailer and under the awning not to mention the effects of the heat.

I know a lot of people talk about cooking inside the trailer and the smell. We always run our range hood fan when cooking things like this and it has never been a problem for us. Maybe my nose is not as sensitive....everyone once in a while I can smell it an hour or two later, but never much longer.

I purchased a Camp Chef stove from Big 5 paid around 75 for it. It has two large burners and ties in nicely with the adapter hose to the camper. Just remember to not use a regulator that comes with it since you are already regulated from the onboard propane setup.

Nice thing about the Camp Chef is that it will put out some serious BTU's to get that water boiling at higher elevations.

Plus its nice to be able to go outside early in the morning to do all the coffee and breakfast work without wandering around the camper, making noise and waking the wife up. :hihi:

Regards,

NS.

I just picked up my new Jayco 19RD in Ellensburg, WA. It has the outside grill that mounts to the side of the TT. Looks like an awesome setup. Haven't had a chance to use it yet. Gas line quick connect to the external outlet from propane. Of course, also some external speakers for some great music while grilling.

We do like our steaks on the grill. Not sure anything beats a 2 inch thick filet mignon wrapped in bacon grilled on the Bar B Que. Unfortunately the temps were down in the 20s when we picked up the TT so the outside grill will wait until spring.

The ultimate outside grill, for flavor that is.

Our Jayco Eagle Superlite came with the outdoor grill and I was hesitant at first thinking that it was way too close to the side of the trailer. I was wrong. The grill works great and the grill sits far enough away from the side of the trailer so the wall doesn't even get warm to the touch. It's a great grill!

Mag,

After seeing a few in use from a distance, I often wondered about the heat on the outer wall.
