We love our Green Egg Mini Max. We have a large one at home, but use the mini max when camping. It cooks everything. You can use it as a smoker too. It weighs about 35 lb, but my husband and I usually get it on and off the truck together.

I have been using propane at home for 35 years.

For the fifth wheel I purchased the Weber Go charcoal grill and a Weber chimney to start the charcoal.

Gets going virtually as fast as a gas grill. No lighter fluid, just an old newspaper page. Charcoal goes out quickly when the grill is closed up.

Very portable. Perfect for two. Small size for storage. Rectangular. Cooks really well! Truly an excellent design. Lightweight.

Changed my mind about propane!

It depends on how big a grill you need/want. I use a Magma. Very well made. Very light and easy to store. They make several models.

Love our davey crocket green mountain grill pellet grill/smoker. It lives in the truck during camping season and goes on the patio adjacent to the bigger version for those times I need to cook more food.

I don't have a lot of storage on my I 5 so I went with this. It's gas but uses the small propane tanks you can buy at Walmart for a couple of bucks. Cooks very well, it's compact, light and folds into a suitcase like format for storage.

As far as quality goes, it's hard to beat anything Weber puts out. I know the initial cost is higher, which kept me away for awhile, but the fact that they last so much longer than the cheaper stuff actually makes them a better deal in the long run.
The Weber Q series is really popular on this forum, and they can either use the portable propane cylinders or can be easily adapted to a trailer's gas line. Either way it's a wise investment.

I am still on propane and have recently discovered the wonder of the blackstone griddle. I dont even carry my grill anymore.

That said if I were to add anything to the mix it'd be an electric pellet grill/smoker. Seem's like that'd be a natural fit for an all electric coach. Traeger were the ones I've looked at but I know there are others. Charcoal is easy enough to source a spot at a campground to light up, not sure i'd carry something specific.

Though on that subject check out the solo stove fire pit. I carry one for the uppity campgrounds that dont provide a pit. Could definitely double as a wood fired grill with a grate added.
