I'm still using the Char-Griller Akorn Jr. Still have the TT grill with gas a backup or other things. The Akorn Jr. can reach 700 degrees np if needed, can also slow cook BBQ all day np. I still need the Blackstone Table Top Grill - 17 Inch for breakfast food. Another nice about the Akorn Jr it fits in the slide out tray in the cargo area on the Raptor 425TS. Clean up is easy the next morning, it has a drop pan that disconnects to dump ashes. Parts are also easy to find... JB

Update: I fiddled with the 2200 today dismantling everything and putting it back together. Didn't really see anything but it did seem to run a bit hotter when it was all back together this time. Guess I'll try cooking on it tomorrow (tonight is Cedar Key clams, stone crab and oysters). If it won't work tomorrow I'll get something else and give the 2200 away when we get to our regular little park in December. Hoping for the best....

Hi Danny,

I have never had any issues grilling steaks, burgers, chicken, sausage, etc on my 2200Q.

I do not grill with the griddle on though, wonder if that makes a difference?

The only time I put the griddle on is for breakfast; bacon, eggs, pancakes, etc.

Thanks Brian. I'm hoping all is well tomorrow when I put it to use. I had the griddle on because my first job with it was to try to season it. It was pretty rough and looked like seasoning it a bit would help it with not sticking. I had it on the fire for almost 2 hours and it just barely smoked....once (with oil on it). Maybe tomorrow will be much better.

Sourdough, I think I would try it with a 20lb propane bottle, instead of the little bottles. I found a difference on our Coleman grille.
We just got a Blackstone Tailgater griddle/grille. We haven't cooked on it yet, but both the grille and griddle got plenty hot to season them.

Thanks Douglas. If it doesn't work that is what I'll probably do. I didn't bring any midsize propane tanks and I have the low pressure quick connect on the trailer but doubt it would be any better + don't think I brought my hose for that either.

We have the q1200 and it's worked fantastic?? I removed the factory regulator and hook it to the RV propane outlet. However even when I tried the small bottles it worked great. Steaks, chops, bacon. In fact I usually only use the 50% setting as it's plenty hot enough?
As someone else said maybe something is wrong with the orifice or regulator?

Hmm did a bit of research and came up with this from the Weber site.

Sourdough, I have the Weber Q and use the grill mats such as the ones in the link. I cut them to cover just 1/2 of the grill area otherwise it won't heat properly. That baby gets pretty hot and I grill steaks on it all the time. The mats are great because they clean up easily. I even cooked eggs on them.

Thanks all for all the help and ideas. I finally grilled this evening and things turned out much better than I expected. Cooked a 1 1/4" ribeye (large-we split) and some nice smoked sausage from TX. Heated up and cooked well. I was worried that the heat just wouldn't stay up trying to grill the steak but it did OK and it turned out just like I like it. Sausages will go into gumbo and beans and rice tomorrow. Have no idea what made it just not do anything when I first fired it up....seems to be much better now and I hope it stays that way.
