Since I've got a low-pressure grille: I never paid attention to this easy process.
But I do know that it's been discussed in here quite a bit. Try searching for "low pressure grilles". I think that this process popped up during those conversations.

I bought a Coleman XLE and yeah, it’s heavy and it does take up a cargo bay. But I like it. My brother in law gave me an extra cook top (for pots and pans) which was a nice addition.

I do a reverse sear a lot. Just tonight while camping at Fort Wilderness I smoked a nice thick ribeye at 150 for almost an hour and finished it at 425 without leaving our motorhome. I suppose you could never do that with a gas grill. The meat thermometer plugs into the grill so I can get a real time reading on the internal temp. The PID control sets the temperature inside the grill precisely, why not change it remotely? Oh... I didn't flip the steak.

I don't know: Emmett may have just given me a reason to upgrade the BBQ! LOL

Looks like there is now a CharBroil grill with WiFi too.

Note that there are a ton of bluetooth/wifi temperature probes available.

Dont know about those two. I bought a weber Q2200 and portable stand at a garage sale for $25. It cooks great. I store the grill, stand and 2 chairs in the rear compartment under the rear slideout of my citation 24sr.

I currently use an 18" Weber charcoal grill. Love the charcoal grill flavor, but it can be a pain waiting for the charcoal to heat up. Ive been thinking about getting the Blackstone flat top grill. HSN has a 22" thats exclusive to them.. That would be the perfect size for me. I just want to try one out first before buying it. $200 is a little to much to spend for an experiment.


Ive used the Coleman and didnt like it. Had the Weber 1200 and it was good.

Stainless Magma Grills made for boating are great and never wear out! I still use one I got around 1987, just give it a good cleaning once in a while. The mount made for boat railings works great to attach the grill to the ladder.

I'd like to use the Weber Q1200 but am a bit concerned about whether it would fit in the side compartment of my Synergy TT24 as I would rather and the rear compartment for chairs and stuff. Has anyone traveled with this style Q and had problems storing it?

Owner of a 2017 Thor Aria. We purchased a Coleman grill and after many burned hamburgers we needed to make a change. Purchased a Blackstone tailgater portable gas grill and griddle combo. Purchased on amazon for less than we paired foe Coleman. Very happy with the new grill.

My vote goes to the Weber Q, by far the best grill for the buck, also itís very easy to convert to use low pressure port.

We have a Thor Windsport 29M.


What is required to convert the Weber Q1200 to low pressure and connect to our 50lb Propane tank?


Do I need to just buy the Weber 6501 Adapter Hose for Weber Q-Series or is there another adapter needed to connect to the propane tank on our rig?


Thanks

Just hook in downstream of the regulator on your big tank and you're good.

I don't think the adapter on the connection of my rig is compatible with the Weber 6501 Adapter Hose for Weber Q-Series adapter for a regular propane tank. Isn't there another adapter needed for the 50lb tank on my rig?
