We've had two grills over the years, both of this type which had un-even cooking.  We added those ceramic briquets which helped, but never really solved the problem.  Their only advantage was the easy-to-store size.


My wife said enough is enough.  Now that we have the PC2350 with nice basement storage, she found THIS COLEMAN GAS GRILL on clearance at Menards for $75.00, regularly $150.  To be honest, it's hard to believe this originally cost $150.  But it does have a circular tubular stainless steel burner to provide more even heating, and a cast iron cooking grate.  It also fits well in our PC2350 basement.  Now I have to find the perfect box to store it in.


I'd love to read what you all use.  Please include website pics like I did.

Hands down the  Webber Baby Q is the best grille there is for RV'ing!!  Webber is a superb company that stands 100% behind their products.  I have called them looking for replacement parts and they have actually told me that my grille was still under warranty and have sent me my new parts free of charge.  Made in America to boot!

Does anyone use an electric grill?  I suppose that would work best for those who use electical hookups as opposed to boondocking so as not to drain the batteries.  So far I haven't purchased a grill and would be interested in hearing your ideas comparing gas vs. electric grills.  My first thought is that the electric grills would be less bulky and could be more flexible in where they were set up at the camp site.

I've been thinking about this one. Small and compact with a small wind deflector.

I've used the Weber Baby Q for a year now, and am very satisfied with it.  It stores easily in the new 2350 storage area with the shelf down.  The Coleman would be a good alternate, but I prefer having a top that can be down during cooking.  The Weber heats up quickly, and the heat is uniform all along the grate.  I bought mine at Camping World when they were on sale last year--little pricey when not on sale.  I've found the propane bottles are cheaper at Walmart.

Good point, never thought about the "Top Down" I do like a flame, we like ours charred. The Coleman just looked like it would store easier.

I also use the Weber Baby Q.  Its the only portable grill Ive found that gets hot enough to grill steaks.  It heats quickly and evenly, and you can close the lid while grilling.  I have the Weber Baby Q, the rolling duffle bag to store it in, and the rolling cart to set it on for grilling.  It all fits easily in the back of our Chevy HHR tow car along with towing accessories, our Brake Buddy, beach umbrella & chairs with lots of room spare to go for groceries at Walmart.  Like anything you can buy somewhere else other than Camping World, its almost always cheaper usually at Amazon.

Yes the Coleman seems to be the best for storage reasons which is one reason why we selected it.  It seems to offer the same general benefit as the Baby-Q, but we have not yet used it so we cannot confirm it's claim to "even-heat" cooking.  The dome lid does make it possible to consider cooking a small chicken.  Again we have Zero experience with it to-date.

We use the Olympian - http://www.pplmotorhomes.com/parts/bbq-grills/stainless-gas-grill.htm
Stainless steel, flavor plate inside, comes in a nice carry bag that fits well into the rear storage container. Also grills steaks to perfection

We have an el cheap-o, cast pig-metal grill w/collapsing metal legs & side propane bottle.  If I recall correctly, it was the most inexpensive model carried at Camper World & it fit in the outside rear compartment of our 2551.  No complaints & we/ve cooked salmon, burgers, elk (quickly!) taters, veggies, etc.  Looking for a small enough flat piece to insert & still be able to close the hood so we can do pancakes.

We use the Coleman that Billy included the link for from Camping World. We shopped around and bought ours on sale at WalMart last year. It stores good and I have a piece of cardboard that I enclose inside on the grill rack to help reduce the rattling while driving down the road. We have grilled steaks, hamburgs, hot dogs and porkchops with no problem. I found a plastic pan w/6" sides that fits the greasey grill rack and also for numerous other things for easy soaking and washing.

After trying numerous grills I found the Coleman all-in-one-cooking-System ideal for use in the Cruiser.  It fits in the outside storage compartment and you can use it as a stove, griddle or barbecue grill. It comes apart easily for cleaning and works well as an outdoor stove or griddle in addition to a grill.
