THis will be on the next to buy list. I do have 8 of the small bottles. So I'll use them up and then buy this.

Howdy All;

Choosing a BB-Q is kind of a personl thing.
I can understand the questions of;
Why did you get...
How well does it pack-up for traveling
etc. .....

As I am mostly cooking for myself, sometimes for one or 2 others
I don't need one of the backyard giants. But I tend to stay in one spot for months at a time....... what to buy ???????????

When I have time (generaly do), I have a Weber 'Smokey Joe' uses charcoal
gives me a better taste;

For quick and easy, I have a Master Forge;

Bought a 4' hose and run it off one of the RV's tanks.

In my storage unit in Utah I keep, for special occisions.
such as smoking 30 ro 40 pound of ribs. Slow cookin' 5 or 6
pork shoulders ... stuff like that.

a Brinkman smoker;

The legs are the weak-point on this one. Will be fabricating a better set myself.

My thinking is that everyone needs to realize how much cooking do ya intend to do, what TYPE of cooking do you prefer to do, how many hungry mouths do you have to feed on a regular basis...
It's always a personal choise.......

my nickle's worth .....

Cleaning coleman

I've read many posts with negative cleaning issues with the Coleman. We have not had any cleaning issues. Pair of rubber gloves and rag or my personal favorite, just spray the entire thing down with the hose and cleaner. Just wondering what is different about cleaning the Coleman than any other grill that has grease dripped all over it? Actually, with the high quality coated grill plates, everything just kind of falls off anyway.... Not wanting to start a stupid grill war here, just a bit perplexed!

I've never cleaned a Coleman before so can't comment on how one is any different or better than the other with regards to cleaning. Our Weber still requires scrubbing and cleaning and the rubber gloves, rags and all of the other stuff sounds quite familiar. I don't have the self-cleaning Weber model.

Whatever bbq I get it will be self cleaning. Me, myself, and I will clean it, definately not the DW

Regarding your budget, the Coleman is very cost effective, however, alot of negetive reviews on it. Weber Q is excellent which I had, as is the Olympian which I have now. If you have the quick connect set up on the 5er, look into the Olympian as it comes ready to use without the regulator & with the quick connect hose. In case you don't know or are unaware, if using your RV,s system another regulator on the grill will make it unable to operate as the propane coming from the bottles are already low pressure & ready to cook.

Thanks for the input. The Coleman and Weber are very close in price, not counting the table I already purchased, but after seeing both at CW I like the Weber better.

I again checked for a gas outlet on the 5th. None So the regulator won't be a problem. I'll be getting the Stay-Flow adapter and run the bbq off of it.
