What grill do you use???

Were were looking for a new upgraded grill for camping and we picked it up... our new Coleman Road Trip grill.

We love it and it works great. I just had to use it to test it out and cooked some chicken on it. It cooked very quick and still gave that open flame taste we like. Can't wait to bring it with us camping. Now we can cook up some serious grub!

Here's what she looks like and we plan on getting either a 2.5 lbs or a 5 lbs propane bottle instead of those 1 lbs disposable tanks.

Neat grill

Neat grill Steve! I've seen those in catalogs and thought they'd be pretty slick!

For the past year, we've been using a Masterbuilt ACGBG Camp 'n Cooker. It's a set-up designed by an RV'er for RV'er.

In one compact carry case, you have a removable weber-like grill, a griddle, and then when removed, a “turkey fryer” high BTU unit that we use to boil shrimp, lobster and ears of corn.

Camping World sells the grill ... but at globalmart.com , it runs around $85.

Like yours, it runs off little 1 pound cylinders ... but we carry a bigger (but still smaller than regular bbq grill) bottle of propane.

Ahhh!

A pic of Pam's grill! Thanks, Tod. I've been meaning to ask you about this. I might go with Steve's instead though. We don't need another turkey fryer...

Propane adapter

There is available an adapter and hose that you can connect to one of the trailer propane tanks to fuel a BBQ. They come with various lengths of hoses. We're still using the 1lb. tanks, but if we start using our little Weber more, we'll probably get the hose/adapter. Incidentally, we like the Weber, nice and compact and secures well for the trip. The so-called flavorizer bar cooks steaks tastier than our big grill at home.

Never done it myself, but they sell the hardware to refill the disposable bottles from your big tank, and several folks on rec.outdoors.rv-travel do it successfully on a regular basis. One of them says that it's not illegal to refill, just to transport refilled bottles...

Charcoal Grill

We do it the low-tech way. An old-fashioned Kingsford charcoal grill - tabletop version. It's about as versatile as they come too. You can grill on it, of course. Can also take the grate out and put a dutch oven in it if there is no fire ring. Once, we even had a small campfire in it while camping in a National Forest when we felt it had been too dry for a regulation-size campfire.

Great idea Kim

Kim>>small campfire in grill

Kim! Good idea! I would have never thought of that! Would make the fire easy to control or snuff out.

Boy, it was terribly dry everywhere out west this year. Sure hope it rains and/or snows a bunch!

Campfire

Lee and I use a charcoal chimney starter as a campfire.

We start the charcoal as usual (with one double sheet of newsprint) and leave the charcoal in the chimney. We put a heat diffuser on top to hold the heat in.

It keeps us cozy and warm on chilly nights and mornings. It also keeps the coffee hot.

Clever idea

What a clever idea Morgan. :)

I think we have one of those charcoal starters around here somewhere.

I have also asked that question of Morgan, and he was nice enough to add the picture. I actually think it is here somewhere twice already, but i know for a fact it's here once. try a search for chimney and see if there are too many to look at.
OR Morgan could just put it here---again. :)

seems like last time there was something about *Sanford and Son* might be a good search phase. If you have trouble I'll look too.

Here's the picture of Morgan's campfire.

He'll need to answer the particulars about how and how long, etc. All I gots is the photo.

I still want one!

Thanks Mary and Jana, That looks so cosy I think I will get one when I get my shower in April. I can even see the diffuser on the top excellent!:) That base looks like hibachi.

So where do you get a diffuser? I've been keeping my eyes open when I go places and look in catalogs, but haven't seen one yet.
I think he said the bottom thing was part of a grill, but I bet a hibachi would work. anything to keep it off the floor/ground to keep the fire contained, but it's bound to hold the heat some too.

Jana

I snagged this off of one of Morgan's posts. Hope he doesn't mind. He said he got it at a 99 cent store.

The following thread has details about my "Sanford & Son" heater:

http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/read.php...?TID=750&page=4

Pippa, It'll run forever if you keep adding charcoal. :laugh

Seriously, it runs about 3 or 4 hours on one fill.

Journeycake,

I found the heat diffuser at a 99 cent store. They were $0.99 each. I don't know where you'd look in Bartlesburg. :r

I was checking out the cataloges today, and there it was - Morgans campstove.
<img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3e53ddc576255stove.jpg/> Its called a Norwegian Mil.-style Wood burning stove, about twice the size and originally priced at $200. Isn't it nice we have someone who can create somthing like it, that burns charcoal, for next to nothing. Well I'm impressed. :yep
