BBQ

Good Evening,

Just put a deposit down on a 2015 Vengeance T25V. Now were looking into all the accessories we will need to have once we go camping in the spring. I was just wondering what everyone is using for a portable bbq. I was thinking about getting a Traeger or Bradley smoker so I can set it and forget it. I have a Big Green Egg at home but because they are not very portable I was hoping I could get something a little lighter and more worry free.

Thanks,

Colby

HI! Congrats on the new RV. For a small grill you might want to take a look at the Webber Q series grills and the Orion Induction Cooker/Smoker for fill it, light it and forget it cooking.
Can't wait for Spring and warmer camping weather!

I have the big Tex (the big boy) Traeger at my home. I love it!! I can rub down a brisket or butt the night before and fill up the hopper with pellets. In the am while I'm making coffee turn it on and in 5 minutes it's up to temperature. I set the final temp and put the meat on. I come home after work and it's nearly ready to eat or ready already.

I've also done a layout of beer can chickens... They turn out great!!

You could go with one of traeger's smaller models for rv use.

As far as pellet grills go, Louisiana Grills and Yoder are both top notch. Traegers are ok but have their issues. Orion cookers are pretty neat and cook fast due to the sealed design. I cooked the T-day bird on one and it was great. Weber has good options with both the kettle grill and the Weber Smokey Mountain. I like to tow our Lang 84 stick burner trailer pit behind the 5er. There's almost nothing better than spending the day in the shade in a lawn chair next to a cooler of beer feeding logs into the cooker and kicking out awesome eats for us and our friends.

those louisianas pretty close to fitting the bill Lighter then the Yoder, can pick it up at Canadian tire so I'll always be able to find Pellets for it. just have to decide if that the route I want to go or not. I bought the green egg Mini Max last year but the handle broke and I caught it on it's way down and its insides broke. it was also a bit heavy for me to move around by myself.

A weber smokey mountain (WSM) would be pretty light if you are looking for smoking food.
I wish I could take my Primo, but all I carry is an 18" Weber grill.

Weber has a 14" WSM... or what I just got for Christmas.. Green Mountain Grills Davy Crockett. The DC is a tailgate pellet smoker. It comes with everything you need to run it from utility socket in the truck or clip direct to the battery. As well as AC capability obviously. I've used it a few times at the house now and I think I'm really going to like it.

For standard grilling we have the Coleman Roadtrip LXE.

If you are interested in the Traeger, send a PM to BamaBob. He bought one just for camping and has used it a lot. I got to see it used at the BamaGanza15 rally and it is fantastic.

When we bought our first trailer I started researching small portable grills. I bought a $20 one from wally world to use temporarily until I could figure out what to buy. Ten years later we're still using a $20 Walmart grill It works perfectly for the two of us. Cheap, small and lightweight but we use it for everything we cook on a grill. We just never saw the need to buy a more expensive one. Of course it is just a grill, not a smoker.
