Grill for RV

Anyone with a Zinger have a recommendation for outside portable gas grill. My Cougar camper actually came with the outside grill but the new zinger has the outside hook up but no grill.

we use our table top Weber Q series grill, its great and fits a lot of food on it. We just hook it up to one of our tanks on the front of the camper and good to go.

We use a Napoleon Travel Q. It's been great, breakfast eggs and bacon all the way to ribs. Got it on sale for just over $200

Sorta like which oil to use and what tow vehicle to buy

We looked around at what the other rv'ers had good results with and ended up with a great http://www.amazon.com/Weber-53060001-Liquid-Propane-Grill/dp/B00FDOON9W

although we bought it as a table top to use on the picnic tables, we also got the roll around cart: www.amazon.com/Weber-6557-Portable-Cart-Grilling/dp/B00FLRB0GK/

It's actually set up at home on the back porch right now we like it so well - but there is just the two of us...

good luck !

I use a weber Q. I adapted it by removing the regulator and attaching a qd fitting so I can hook it to the camper's low pressure LP system.

I highly recommend this grill.

I see there was only one poster that wrote about the Coleman Road Trip...If I had to buy again it would be the WeberQ,... I have a Coleman and it is a challenge to cook on ,your either not cooking the food at all or burning it...

I almost dumped mine that came with camper and thought I'd try this first..

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

If you have what came with your crossroads or buy the Outdoors Unlimited on Amazon, I suggest this griddle..fits perfect and distributes the heat nicely.

Problem with all these portable grills is the distance the burner is from the cooking surface, you are going to get hot spots.

O Mark
I alsio bought a griddle for my Road trip, and it helps...The problem is the burner configuration, Road Trip has two round burners, and that in itself promotes hot and cold spots...While the WeberQ has burners that run the width of the housing and gives a more even heat...

Yep. I have the same issue with my $400 camp chef tailgater grill.

The camp chef tailgater model they dont make anymore..

BTW, I am kicking myself for not picking up a bunch of those roadtrips when BJs Warehouse had them on closeout last year for ..get this....33 bucks a piece..

I am sure that is why Coleman made the NXT grill. It is rectangular in shape, and unless I am mistaken it has burner bars and not round burners...

Another vote for the Weber. I have the Q220 and modified it for direct connect to the onboard LP hookup. Did the same for our potable LP bonfire. Love just plugging into the onboard propane for both. No worries about hauling around an extra tank.

I still have the one that came with the trailer but don't care for it at all. I use a Weber Q that I've had for nearly 8 years. I haven't made the conversion to allow using it with the trailer propane connection yet, I just take an extra 20 lb LP tank with me.

I also use my Plow Disc cooker, I use it for all kinds of things.fajitas, biscuits and gravy, breakfast tacos, stir fry, etc. for those of you up north that have no idea what I'm talking about, here's a picture when I cooked breakfast tacos this past week.

To give you an idea of how big it is, that mixture is comprised of:
1 lb chopped bacon
1 lb ground sausage
1.5 lb shredded hashbrown potatoes
2 small chopped onions
2 chopped bell peppers
18 eggs, scrambled

Enough filling for 40 tortillas.

Mark, I was going to dump the outside grill that came with my 270BH also. But your suggestion is a good one. I think I'm gonna get that griddle.

Great,

Let me know if it works out. Try it out in the first month...if it doesnt meet your expectations..throw it back in the box and ship it back to Amazon.

It comes preseasoned but you got to keep it well oiled. still cast iron underneath. I do fish on it with my Weber at home when we're not camping.
