We have used it twice now and are really happy. No problems yet.

I have used grill a few times and have not had any problems with splatter or smoke on awning. My question to you all, is there a way to lower heat more than the low setting. It seems to be burning really hot even on the lowest setting. DW is having a hard time not burning food!!!! yikes, don't tell her I said that

On our barbecue it seems to not be hot enough, compared with home barbecue. You probably have a bad valve or too much air entering into assembly. Try turning back valve on gas hose and see what happens.

It's only rated for 11,000 BTUs, as per the sticker on it, which is not a lot for a grill.

My home BBQ is rated at 50,000, and think most are from 40-60,000 BTUs.

I have found that you certainly have to keep a closer eye on your cooking. While the BTU is not as much, the food is closer to the fire (even with the drip protector), and if you're not careful, you will burn it. You need to move it around and find the right spot.

My home grill has 99,000 total BTUs plus a 12,000 side burner.
I don't think I will be burning food on the baby 11,000 grill on the camper.
