Propane grill selection?


Planning to buy a portable grill which will utilize my camper's low pressure lp connection.

The only grill i see online is the olympian which seems to only get marginal reviews and is too expensive.

Does anyone know of other options or a quality portable grill that will allow removal of the regulator so a simple lp control valve could be installed in its place?

The grill we select does not need to attach to the trailer.

Any advice or insights would be appreciated.

I have the Weber 100. I don't attach it to the quick connect gas line,but it will work with the proper mod. It's something I'd like to accomplish though.

Other then that, it's a Weber. Weber is hard to beat.

Weber is very popular if just looking for a grill. I like camp chef if your looking for a grill/stove. amazon has a camp chef with grill box for under $200. all you have to add is a quick connect hose and your set to go.

Honestly I looked long and hard at a portable grill expecially one that I could hook up to the LP line at the rear for a grill. WAY too pricy for me (to spend on a grill anyways). Several options, find a grill you like (some come with regulators built on them some dont) the ones with regulators you will need to use the small green LP tanks to run those or purchase a LP "T" fitting and run it directly off yout TT main LP tank. The ones w/o regulator you could run off your LP supply line thats already in place outside but you might need to buy a hose and possible addl fittings to make things work. whatever you do just dont forget the grill will barely run if you supply it with gas thats been fed through two regulators. Me personally...I just went to walmart and bought a 40$ portable tabletop Charbroil gas grill and use the green portable tanks. going on two seasons and works just fine and no problems. We also refill our empty green tanks off a 20lb tank we have at home to save a few dollars.

We bought the Quisinart and it works just fine using the TT's disconnect without removing the regulator, you just need to turn the setting slightly higher. For overnight stops, we just use the small bottles and set the stove up on the end of the picnic table. If we are staying put a few days, we set up a cooking table on the side of the TT and hook the grill up to the quick connector. Any propane dealer can set you up with the proper hose, or Camping World has them.

Some of our friends tell us they had a hose made up to re-fill the small bottles from a 20 or 30# bottle. We have not tried that.

I just purchased a Weber Q 120 and have the parts to convert it to the low pressure LP quick connect on my trailer. I hope the reviews on it are true!

I had a really old model Side Kick grill that was, well, next to worthless with uneven heating and hard to clean. It fastened to the rail on the side of the RV and left grease spatters behind. I think the new models of the RVQ II seem much, much better than the old Side Kick, but I could get the Weber cheaper and had the conversion parts so went with it. And I have a long enough hose so that if it rains I can move the Weber under the awning.

I've heard of doing this, but was told those bottles are not made to be refilled and it could be very dangerous. I know nothing more about that and I'm not willing to try it. Not worth it to me.

We have a weber Q220. Will be removing the regulator already have the hose to quick connect just need to modify the end to grill.

We have Weber Q 120 and hook it directly to a 20# bottle. Use it with it's own regulator. The advantage to Weber grills is that they
have cast iron grates, so better grill marks on the meat. We also have a Sportsman's Series Grill from Sams for under $100.00 Bigger
cookikng surface than the Q 120, but does not do nearly as good a job as the Q 120.
