[QUOTE=btw I only use mesquite. I think that must be a Texas thing which is where this Jersey boy first learned about real BBQ. (Lived there for 15 yrs)[/QUOTE]

Who can argue with such logic! Couldn't agree more....

We take a Weber Q220 with us in the RV. I bought a bottle-retainer ring from CW and got a 10-pound low-profile propane bottle that has the same base footprint as the bigger ones.

The only problem I've found with the Q220 is that it won't go in any of the cargo bays without taking the lid off. It's about 3/4" too tall. Taking the lid off isn't a big deal, though.

It's a very good grill. It gets hotter than the big 4-burner one I have at home.

I use a number of cookers depending on what's on the menu. I have a Weber 22" One Touch Gold, Weber 18" Smokey Mountain Cooker, and a Primo Junior ceramic cooker that I use at home. When camping, I use a Weber Q 120 w/griddle. I miss the charcoal flavor when camping so I may try to integrate one of the home cookers to the camp equipment list.

I gave up on charcoal and gas a long time ago...Charcoal was a hassle and gas does nothing to add flavor and in fact it dries out whatever you cook. Plus, try cooking bacon on a charcoal or gas grill. It just is not going to happen. I switched over to a wood pellet/ smoker. The pellets come in different flavors, mesquite, hickory, maple, etc..It cooks using convection heating just like an oven. There is no direct flame to scorch whatever you are cooking. I even cook pizza's and many other things on mine. The one I use for camping is a smaller version of the one I use at home. Just turn the knob to the smoke position and in 4 to 5 minutes the firepot will ignite then set to the desired temp and walk away...These things are great! The flavor they add to your cook is fantastic!. Warning: Do not eat from one, it will cost you some money..

I use the BIG Smoker/BBQ when smoking for myself and friends. When camping I take along the propane Smoker just because I can't get the BIG smoker in the toy hauler.

Just bought a Weber Q220 last week. Got it to replace my Cuisinart Gratelifter Charcoal Grill for camping, the charcoal is just too much of a clean-up hassle. We'll be taking it and the rig to Talladega this weekend for the race and I'm anxious to see if it lives up to the hype. Will post my thoughts after we get back. Planning steaks one night, chicken the next and conecah sausage the third. (Note to self: bring Rolaids)
Go Junior!!!

I was at COSTCO a few months ago and a guy was pushing these Traeger Pellet smokers. Even though the price was a little high I decided to give it a shot. I have produced some of the best food ever on that thing. I use it at least 4 times a week. They are electric but burn natural wood pellets. You can maintain temps from 180 - 450 and it honestly doesn't get much easier.

I recently bought the new Traeger PTG for the camper and plan to give it a shot this weekend on a trip.

If you haven't seen them, check them out.

There we go another convert....That is what I was talking about, once you eat anything off of one of these pellet grills you will never enjoy anything grilled or smoked with charcoal or gas. I thought the grill space on the PTG's was a little small so I opted to go with a Traeger Jr with the tailgater kit installed. It works great for me. I bet I have helped sell about 5 or 6 pellet grills since I started taking the Jr camping with us. All I have to do is turn in on and let the smoke roll out of it and someone strolls over to see what it is about. Fire it up in the morning with some bacon on it and you will be amazed how many new camping friends you will make...
