The hose Iím referring to is the 12 ft QD hose to connect to on board lp QD outlet. The 22 doesnít come with that does it? Mine just came with the lp tank hose and regulator.

Right you are Wayne M. I plan to cook some ground beef burger patties. That's hard to screw up.

Has anyone bought Grass Feed Black Angus steaks and thought they tasted odd?

I still want to now more about this oily residue in LP and how or if this stuff is why Coleman does not recommend using their grills with LP from an RV tank. (I think this is the case.) But is this because of the oily residue or is it because Coleman just wants to sell their Canister LP cans at a higher profit?

No, the 22 does not come with a 12ft hose. I'm also thinking of purchasing an adjustable regulator. I'd like to be able to get down to a lower temperature for pancakes and crepes. I did do a breakfast on the 22 that included pancakes and they came out good..just want some lower heat if it is possible.

I have a Coleman grill that I carried for several years and I used it from my on-board 27 gal propane tank. I never noticed any weird tastes or oil. Can't explain that. Maybe my taste buds are shot from all the spices I like.

p.s., you can buy an adapter that will "bleed" fill one of those canisters. Saves a few bucks. I have not tried it yet but it is on my to-do-list to try.

Also, using a 36" Blackstone Griddle will deplete a 20# propane bottle in 8 hours, give or take. Don't know the life of a 20# propane bottle for a grill but suspect the smaller size will increase the time considerably. Canister's considerably less.

Happy grilling! Or griddling.

You can unknowingly buy dirty propane, and it can enter your tank(s) when you refill. Never happened to me. Some lp appliances are very sensitive to oil contamination, such as refrigerators. I know Mr. Buddy recommends using an oil filter with their heaters if not using a Coleman 1lb bottle. This article has info I didn’t know about propane:

Good article. Glad I have a residential refrigerator.

Because it will be raining where I am RV camping for the next 3 days, I will not be able to BBQ some burgers and marinated pork tenderloin for a while.

When I do grill some more food, then I will see if I still taste something LP-like after cooking?

Thanks for that article above by the way. It confirms oil can get in the LP system, but it really does not say how other than during the refueling process -- as if the station pump system or delivery truck is to blame -- and not the LP compound mixture in the tank.

I also have googled this subject and when people complain about LP taste in their food, the replies I have read refute this; and the people complaining never seem to circle back and explain if they ever solved the problem or how they solved the problem.

Then I found articles about "oil in the LP tank," which included information like the article above. And these stories always talked about the oil clogging up the regulator or jets; and the net affect was poor heat or poor combustion and some suggest a larger then normal yellow flame will all contribute to a bad burn, but they don't imply a bad taste in food if you use the LP for grilling, but maybe that is because they just didn't cover this subject.

What I did learn is that there is more energy per pound in LP (propane) gas tank vs. natural gas you get from the city. And consequently, the LP bbq grill jets will have smaller orifices vs. a natural gas bbq grill.

But I'm concerned with taste. So maybe this long story boils to to what contaminates were on the grill before I grilled the steak; and maybe that dirty wire brush I used to clean the grill was the source of these contaminates? IDK.

Has anyone used one of those bbq cleaners that are biodegradable on the inside of their gas grill and on the cast iron grates to clean it... and had no taste issues afterwards?

I have watched YouTube video on cleaning gas grills and no one has used cleaners of any kind inside.

Anyway, the key to figuring out this problem lies is grilling more food. So thanks for your feedback until I have time to do that.

Tongue in cheek ! (Griddle, no taste. :-))

I have used cleaners in the past on grates for a grill. Rinsed them well. Never had an after taste.

Many "grillers" don't even clean their grates. just run them on high heat after cooking and burn the residue. I've done that but much easier to clean when it is burnt.

When I started using an onion to lubricate the grates they were a lot easier to clean.

So I have concluded that my LP RV Tank was not to blame for my horrible tasting steak the other day.

Rather, I think I contaminated my new grill buy using a wire brush I previously used to clean a rusty-painted sheet metal piece months before.

Today I cleaned the grill with just clean water. Then I used a new wire brush and vegetable cooking oil on the cast iron grate. And I cooked a few burgers that had no petroleum taste. So that is good.

Of course, I would now need to buy some more "Grass Feed" Black Angus Rib Eye steaks from Walmart (again) and put them on the Barbie to see if this second attempt is any different, but odds are contamination was the greater cause.

=== New Subject ===

I definitely like my Coleman "Excursion" Model #9406, which is the same a Coleman's "Roadtrip" grill... only the Excursion model has a solid center plate that keeps the flames from burning (stuff) in your meat. So this is why I am a fan.

And I think if buy this grill and only use those green screw on LP canistors, you too will love your grill.

However, if you attempt to run your Coleman Grill off your LP Tank, then you really need to read this thread first, because it may not be as straight forward as you think, because this Coleman with a 15-PSI regulator requires you to plumb your remote gas line off the HIGH PRESSURE side of your LP tanks, which is BEFORE your LP tank regulator.

Be very careful with the wire brush. It has been known that a wire or two will find its way into an item being cooked.

Do a search on "wire grill brush in food" without the quotes.

I always washed my in the sink with scrub brushes and had not problem getting the food particles off after a good rinse.

Just be careful, please.
