Breakfast pan for the BBQ

Our previous TT had a portable propane stove-top that we could bring outside for cooking rather than heating/smelling up the inside of the trailer. Our new-to-us 19' Forest River - Shamrock has a BBQ that hooks up to the side of the trailer.

Has anyone used a breakfast skillet/pan/grill on their BBQ for cooking up things like bacon & eggs in the morning? Do they work well?

Thanks

We have the SIDEKICK #RVAD500 BBQ that came with our camper. Not sure if that is what you have or not. Some units come with the RVQ2, which I think is a better product. Right now we have an electric griddle that we use outside mainly for cooking breakfast.
Personally I don't like the setup of the sidekick with the warming rack attaching to the main grill rack. You can't put a pot on for boiling water or anything else. I did contact the company last week about this issue and to also inquire about whether they had a griddle plate that could be integrated onto the grill. They don't have one as of yet, but they have a prototype in the works and it should be ready for sale in a short time. Once we get that, then we probably won't bring our electric one along anymore.
It seemed like on our last outing that everytime we had the electric griddle plugged in outside, with the coffee maker running inside, we were always tripping the breaker. Ended up running an extension cord directly to the power pedestal for all of the outside electrical stuff.

I've successfully used pots and skillets on my portable Weber Q120. Seemed to work just fine - no black on the bottoms of the pans.

our wildwood has a electric outlet right beside the door. my wife likes making breakfast outside for the same smell reason. so we went and got a electric skillett that sits on the outside table. it seems to work for us just an idea. because you can go to one of the "marts" the one that sells walls or the one that sells K's and buy an electric griddle for under $30..

we alwys run a extension cord to the power pedestal just for lights coffee pot electric skillett and toaster oven

We use a coleman 2-burner non-stick griddle on the campstove all the time. It works inside on the gas range as well.

We usually use our electric griddle but I just found a cast iron non-stick griddle by Coleman that I'm thinking about getting.

Some great ideas. We're driving/camping around Lake Ontario next week so I'll see what I can find by then.

Thanks

I ended up getting an aluminum non-stick griddle from camping world. It didn't end up fitting on top of the existing grill but if I remove the existing grill the griddle sits tightly just above the heat defusser. Luckily my existing grill has handles for easily removing and replacing without getting to dirty in the process. Having the griddle sitting closer to the burner seems to be a good thing so far. Any how it worked great for eggs and bacon except for when I got a little excited while making scrambled eggs and starting cracking all the eggs at once. One of the yolks made a run for it while I had my head turned and ended up falling off the griddle.

Thanks for the help.
