No hint of pine resin then?
It's amazing how wood smoke can flavour a meat. I use hickory on pork, but never on chicken or steak ( ends up tasting like ham ).

A few years ago Costco was offering Napoleon Travel Q.
We have now used ours for 2 years and it work great, even heat over the entire surface, interior is all Teflon coated which makes clean up fast and easy, folds compact and uses either disposable or large tanks (like most do)

You never know. Could be a whole new market out there for pine cones. Pack 'em in plastic bags and sell them for $5 a bag.
I did a pork shoulder and it cost more for the hickory chips than it cost for the meat ( by weight ).

Hi: arlon... A few folks over on Escapeforum.org are using a marine based Dickinson Spitfire S/S portable BBQ. I can't say how well they work... but they look rugged and probably pricey. Everything I like seems pricey!!! S/S would be a lighter BBQ than a cast one allowing for a side of something to cook???

I like that volcano. I carry a weber charcoal grill but there are too many restrictions on charcoal in the dry belt. I like that I could use it several ways. I never need a lid for grilling or heating up a can of beans so a lid isn't a necessity for me. They all have some merit for sure.

The lid allows the grill to heat up hotter and more quickly, which saves fuel and provides a better sear.

I often roast a chicken on my Weber. Cut a whole chicken in half. Put it on the grill, on low, with the inside of the chicken facing down, sprinkle with spice, and leave it there, with the lid closed, for an hour. Inside of the chicken may blacken, but you're not eating the ribs. Your timing may vary with the size of the chicken and your BBQ.

There is an "in-between" size of propane tanks. We have a re-fill-able one that is larger than the disposable tanks and smaller than the large one. I believe we bought it from Amazon, although I cannot find it for you at the moment. We find it convenient because we can bring it to the picnic table to use for our stove and for a lantern!
Happy Camping!

I am one of those that has the Dikinson Spitfire 180 BBQ Alf refers to. There was lots and lots of consideration that went into what I finally chose. HERE is a review I did on it last year.

After using it the entire year, I am thorougly enjoying this BBQ. It has been used tons. We love it, and I believe it is well worth what I paid for it. Can't imagine needing to ever replace it. Definitely one of my best purchases in a long time.

We have a Webber Everready portable grill and a 6' hose that attaches to our 20 lb propane tank. It works great. The grill was $60.

I have also had one of these...good grill I enjoyed it a lot. DH does not cook or grill.I had one that I picked up in a garage sale and used for years at home and and camping. It was so worth the $$ that if I did not have a cook now I would get a new one.Now I am lucky enough to have a wonderful SIL that loves to cook on the charcoal grill.So being a very thoughtful mother in law I got him a nice one to keep in my camper

Want to keep him happy so I even help DD set up their tent so he can get started on the grill.

Weber Q100 for me as well. I originaly used the 1 lb bottles but they are pricey. Now I have a 15 foot LP hose connected to the high pressure side of the Boler regulator (with a shut off valve). This BBQ puts out plenty of heat, has a good solid cast iron grate and a spark ignition button that has always fired the first time. I found a rectangular heavy gauge stainless steel griddle that fits nicely on the grate and the lid can be closed. That took some hunting because the BBQ cooking surface is not your typical round or rectangular shape.

After a lot of looking, reading, considering I finally decided I just had to give the Volcano grill a shot. It solves several of the issues I had and adds a few new possibilities as well. Only time will tell. Not as conventional as others but I liked that it runs directly of my spare propane tank, can even be used as a wood burner, fits my dutch oven and works with the wok...

I appreciate all the suggestions and may end up going another direction if this doesn't work.

Looks like a nice little rig. I've never seen one of those. To bad you couldn't post cooked samples for us to taste. Oh, give it time the way technology is going.

You won't go wrong with a Volcano. We have used one for a couple of years and they are great. You can get an adapter to run them off of 1 lb tanks as well. We use the adapter when we hook it up to a Coleman Distribution Tree so we can run a lantern, stove and volcano at the same time. The tree attaches to a 20lb tank. I have also used the Volcano with briquettes and wood. Works great.
