Grills and mounts.

Hello friends. I am back and forth for grille options on our new Wolfpack toyhauler. Currently we have our colemen roadtrip. It has excellent reviews but the years we have owned it I find it very hard to use and not burn stuff.

I have been contemplating the idea of moving to a grill that can run off our low pressure rv gas line. As well, I like.the idea of either mounting it on the RV. My questions are:

For those of you who have done your research and gone through the trials and tribulations, what grill did you find to be your favorite?

Any of you have pics and write ups on cool ways you mounted your grills to the RV? I have a toy hauler so it may have to be ok the side but I'm not convinced I couldn't still bumper mount it on the corner somehow.

If you have the Coleman traveler, is there something I maybe don't know causing it to be so darn hard to use?

Thanks all as always. Happy Easter as well

I've been using the "Nexgrill" 2 burner portable grill from Home Depot. The only mod was to remove the regulator and replace it with the RV compatible hose.

We've been very satisfied with it for the last 3 years.

Have a Coleman roadtrip and I have it converted to allow low pressure from the trailer port. My complaints are cleaning it sux (dont leave it out in the rain or it will drip forever with grease) and that you really cannot close the lid. While I dont a lot of the time a windy day may need that to cook the food better.

I have a Blackstone and love it so far. It too connects to the LP port. I made the shelf that fits on the side bigger but don't like how high it sits so I set on a folding table next to the trailer instead. It helps to keep grease off the trailer. I use foil to shield from the wind and don't have issues keeping it warm. Cleanup is a breeze.

I have used a friends Weber Q many times. It is also a great grill. Small and compact. He had it 2yrs and the burner plugged up so we have to burn it off and blow out with compressed air. It did not leave a lot of grease when storing which was nice. Scrape it off and ready to go. We also used as an oven for pizzas. You can also convert these to low pressure for hooking up to the trailer. They also make mounts for the rear which you could likely use as many of them swing around but worst case you could mount on the side with a 2" tube.

I also used the one that came with the camper once....once enough said.

I also have a gmg Davy Crockett. This is both a smoker a grill and an oven. It has it's own legs and runs off trailer AC or DC. This can also grill and is the most versital of them but its heavy and you need to haul pellets too. It is ok to clean bit requires a blower or vaccum because of the dust.

I am currently using the gmg and the Blackstone or both depending on the trip and how many I am cooking for.

I had a Weber charcoal grill but too messy because of the ash even when empty. It blows everywhere and even if you were to mount it outside it would cover the trailer.

Hope that helps you out a bit. Happy Easter and happy camping.

We used different grills over the years but now we just use the Blackstone griddle, it cleans up super fast and cooks all our food

I have a 22in and a 17in. The 17in is great but the 22in gets hotter as it has two burners. The 22in I got from Walmart I took the cover off, it handles better for me without the cover

Weber-Q-2200 here. Love it. Have the 3200 for at home. The thing I like about them are they are super easy to clean. Burn it off after you finish cooking, scrape and remove the grates, and scrape everything to the grease tray. Everything but the grates are aluminum no no rusting. Lastly, If i need replacement parts, Lowes and HD both carry half an isle of them. Hard to beat cooks great, easy to clean, lasts forever.

I have considered buying a grill top for my Camp Chef 3 burner stove https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 which I love just as much if not more. They make a couple of the grill tops that you can just put on top of the stove and cover either one burner or two or even all three. The stove is fantastic, 51,000 btu's, 17,000 to each burner but enough adjustment that I can simmer or keep something warm without burning it. I'd rather cook on those two pieces of equipment than anything I've ever cooked on.

Something to be said for a flat top grill. Certainly easier on the dishwashing person. People rave about their Blackstones also.

Why?

Iím sure people have good reasons for why they want their grill attached to the outside of their RVs, but I have never worked out what the advantages are. I am of the opinion that the farther my grill is from my camper, the better. I have never even opened the box that contains the grill that came with my Windjammer because I donít want a grill that close to my camper and under the awning.

Iím not criticizing here ó just wondering why people like this so much.

Bruce
