What is the best bar b que set up for a motorhome?
ANSWER Hi Dennis, I am really glad that you have asked this question. Barbecuing and Grilling goes hand in hand with RVing and Camping. I will tell you up front that our family loves to grill while camping. In our almost 3 decades of RVing we have had several different BBQ Grills. Some were good and some were bad. Some were charcoal grills and some were propane grills.
Three years ago I finally found a BBQ Grill that is perfect for our needs and I love it and use it all the time. It's called the Weber Q-1000 Portable Gas Grill (formerly the Q-100) (see picture to the left).
This little grill is very sturdy and it cooks everything I throw at it. It heats up very quickly and if you like grill marks on your steaks and hamburgers just crank this puppy up to high and it sears the meat to perfection. The heat is adjustable enough to even cook items low and slow.
This grill is the perfect size for us; it has a 189 square inch cooking area which is enough cooking area for a family of four and puts out 8,500 BTUs of heat. The heat that this grill puts out is very even; there are no hot or cold spots. The cooking grates are very easy to clean because they are made of Porcelain-enameled cast-iron. These grates are not flimsy like other portable grills that I have used.
The grill can use either 14 oz or 16 oz propane canisters, or you can do as I did and also buy the Weber 6' Adapter Hose and hook it up to a 20 lb. propane tank. The grill weighs around 29 pounds and fits perfectly in the storage compartment of our Motorhome. I personally give it a 5 out of 5 star rating and the people that have bought this grill from Amazon.com give it an overall rating of 4 1/2 stars.
I cannot tell you how many times in the past that I had to run around the motorhome trying to remember where I put the spatula or tongs so I could start Grilling. Now I store these tools next to the grill in the motorhome storage compartment; no more hunting before cooking.
The set comes with a slotted turner with tenderizer blades and a built-in bottle opener, Barbeque fork, tongs, knife, wire grill-cleaning brush, and basting brush. Once you are done with tools, you clean them and securely fasten them back in the carrying case; so they don't just rattle around in the storage compartment.
Well, now you know what I recommend for BBQing and Grilling while RVing and Camping; now it's your turn to tell everyone about your favorite grill/BBQ; click on the add a comment link located near the bottom of this page.
