Mike, you bring up a great point. This all started during my Hunter Compact rebuild, I decided early on I wanted to go with an inexpensive butane cooktop for inside/outside use. But it's hard to do everything well, with only one appliance! All I really want to do is make pancakes and bacon outside! Lots of ways to accomplish that, and for years I have been dragging the electric griddle out of the house and packing it. I wanted to leave something in the camper permanent. Decisions, decisions!

gas griddle

I have a 30-year-old Coleman with electronic ignition. One of the first they made with that feature. Ugly, but it still works, and I love not having to keep matches or a lighter at hand. If I ever replace it, electronic ignition is non-negotiable.

Take a look at the CADAC grill. I used it last season and it works great. Hooked it to a 10Lb propane tank. I also have a small electric fry pan (Presto 06626 11 inch Electric Skillet w/glass lid), which I use when hooked to shore power.

Could you use this with a hose an adapter to a larger tank.. such as this one?

I cant see from the photos on Amazon how the tank connects.

the large black knob screws on to a 20lb tank, or similar type tank. Other end is same thread as the green one lb disposable tanks, so that screws on to the regulator. What I have heard, and experienced myself, is that some of these hoses are not compatible with the 1 lb tank regulators. I thought my regulator was bad, but found the grill worked fine with the 1 lb tanks but wouldn't work hooked to the 20 pounder. Went to Walmart, bought a new hose, worked fine after that. I think another clue is to open the tank valve slowly.

Gordon2,
My 10lb tank is a bulk tank. It also works with the 20lb tank which I have on the trailer. Be careful about connecting the hose and turning the gas on and off. I have ruined more than one hose being in a hurry. If your unit (any unit) does not work with the hose but does work with the 1 lb tank, the fault lies with the hose, not the unit. I read somewhere that it is possible to fix the hose but it never worked for me. I throw away the $25.00 hose and buy a new one. If the new one does not work it probably means someone messed it up and returned it, then you got it.

I just use a cast iron griddle on top of my camp stove, works perfect and easy to clean up.

I, also, use a cast iron griddle like this one:
Amazon.com: Lodge LDP3 Double Play Reversible Grill/Griddle, 9.5" x 16.75": Kitchen & Dining
It's kind of heavy and messy, but I've been able to make the best pancakes EVER on the darn thing, so I bring it along. It resides in a heavy plastic bag on the left side of my closet, just ahead of the wheel well (72 Scamp 13). I can use it on top of my Camp Chef Oven, or use it in the Scamp, spanning two burners.

I'm getting hungry.

Gordon

OK, I'm sold with Gordon's review of the Lodge griddle making the best pancakes ever! I just ordered the griddle, and will reuse my old coleman camp stove. Thanks everyone for all of the advice!

Recently I purchased this package of BBQ grill mats. Robot Check I suppose something runny like eggs could be a challenge to cook on a flexible grill mat, but it probably would be able to replace a griddle for many food items. I may experiment a bit this summer.

I like cooking on a griddle too, (aka flat top,) due to its versatility. The problem with most small stove-top griddles is just that, they're too small for me. I own both the single and the double flat top griddles, and use the latter when I cook at events to feed a whole lot of people. (I've done burgers and dogs, etc. for over 80 people at a single event with this thing.) There is lots of room on it for its size. I especially like the higher sides and back wall so that when you work your food with a spatula, it doesn't fall off the end of the earth so to speak. I also like the option of having a regular covered grill as well because not everything is necessarily best made on a griddle. But that being said, this cooking setup is how I roll when I camp. Yes, I know it's not the smallest, nor the lightest cooking assembly out there but it works incredibly well all around. I can also remove one component or the other to use regular pots and pans as well. Rather than take a picture of my personal setup, it is exactly the same as this "package deal" offered nowadays, (which wasn't sold together as a complete kit back when I bought each of my components separately years ago,) but with this package, it's all the same stuff rolled into one box. YMMV

Link: Camp Chef Tailgater Combo

P.S. The combo set shown in the link, (and all of Camp Chef's stuff for that matter,) is available for much cheaper at other retailers than it is on the Camp Chef's website I linked to. These kits are available pretty much anywhere they sell camping stuff.

While we are kind of still on topic, here is what I bring, which is in addition to the camp stove and griddle combo you guys have talked me into. I'm sure they have been discussed here before, but it's hands down the best grill I have ever owned, and will last forever. And is relatively light weight being cast aluminum. I think I caught mine on sale before cams one year.

The PK grill is my main grill at home. I have a full size PU with a camper shell but feel I do not have the room to haul it. Also it is a bit too grungy to take on a week long RV trip. Actually I never even considered it until you brought it up. May need to rethink the whole thing. Thanks for sharing.
