We've never used the grill that came with either of our RVs; the V-Lite or the 5er.

We bought this;

Char-Broil Grill2Go X200 Tru-Infrared Portable Grill

along with this:

Char-Broil Grill2Go X200 Carry-All - Model 12401735

We LOVE it! Absolutely *no* flares. Makes beautiful grill marks too if that's important to ya. (shrug)

Just pack it into that clamshell case and it's like carrying a duffel bag, and packs like a duffel bag too.

Ours works fine, but we don't use it very often. And, since you're not supposed to cook under the awning, we set ours on a picnic table. We purchased a gas line extension at a farm store, and it works like a charm.

Most of the time, though, it's dutch oven cooking over coals, or a Weber grill and charcoal.

We didn't have a great experience with the bbq grill that came with our Forest River. We drove up to the Yukon before we got it out and the welds on the grill had came apart and by the end of the trip, the gas connector had pooped out. The company stood behind it and replaced all the defective parts. We now have a "propane tree" that we put on one of the tanks and hook up a Weber Q grill and a Coleman propane stove. The Weber grill came with a small collapsable table and we have a Cabelas kitchen for the Coleman stove. On top of the "tree" we can mount a propane lamp and cook in the dark. We enjoy cooking and somethings a large 3 burner CampChef stove comes along.

I didn't have good luck with the one that came with last camper. So when we got our Windjammer the first thing I did was give it away and bought a Weber Q.
I use a Weber charcoal at home and the Q while camping. Love charcoal but love the ease of the Q while camping.

Real BBQ is cooked over wood or charcoal, Just Sayin'!! We use a weber kettle of a weber smokey mountain. I do like the weber gasser at home for fast after work type stuff though.

Charcoal at the camground, gas at home. Food just seems to taste better over charcoal. Even bacon and eggs

No problem there, the RVQ is free standing and the hose that came with it is quite long so won't be close to the trailer.

I purchased a new Weber Q 220 last year and ran it on the small green bottles of LP. The grill cooked great, got up to temp quick. My only issue was around cleaning it. It would never get hot enough, like our home Weber grill, to clean itself. We turn the home grill on nuke (700+) for ten minutes after cooking. All that's left is a little ash. Quick brush and good to go for the next time.

The Weber Q was always a project to clean when we got home. Put the grate on the home grill and cooked off the baked on goodness. Pressure washed the rest.

We just toss the grills (RVQ or home) in the oven and run a self clean cycle about once a year. Other than that it gets a hit with the brush at the end of grilling to nock off any residue and again when heated up the next time.

Traeger Jr. wood pellet grill. No messing around with dirty charcoal plus the added flavor you will never get from gas. The pellets come in many different flavors, mesquite, hickory, maple, alder and many more. With a pellet grill flare up and dried out meats are a thing of the past. I've cooked pizza on mine and also bacon...I wouldn't try bacon on a gas grill unless the fire department is just around the corner. If you think a wood pellet grill isn't for you then I suggest you never eat on one if the chance comes up. You will set your gas grill to curb if you do.....
