New View member question - BBQ

I am awaiting delivery in March of a new Winnebago View, I am trying to purchase things we will need once we begin traveling. Can anyone recommend a BBQ that will store somewhere in/on the RV…..we know there isn’t a lot of storage room for this type of equipment and of course, weight is an issue too. Appreciate any guidance anyone can offer.

Many of us love the Weber Q 1200.

After lots of different tries at getting the perfect one, once we have gone back to just the two of us, we find light and cheap is good but also add a solid grate for function.

This is one we like for small,light and has a nice locking to keep things inplace but we also add a solid grate which just fits inside for times when we want to sear veggies and such.

The longer we have been at this, the lighter we have learnedto travel as too much "stuff" just becomes a bother!

For years we carried the same Charbroil unit recommended by Morich. We also carried a Coleman stove. Two years ago we removed both items in favor of the Blackstone. The 17" Blackstone is the size of a Coleman stove. The advantage is you can cook anything on it! Also no more washing skillets. Just watch a few YouTube videos and you will be sold.

We have a Weber Q1000, about $30 less than the Q1200. No flip out side trays, but didn’t need those anyway (home Weber Q has them, don’t really like them).

Our Q1000 fits nicely in the passenger side bay, the one just behind the steps.

Either Q would likely provide you some nice service.

I do have a lot more storage space, but as stated a Blackstone would be my preferred outside cooking "stove," Depending on the real space you have the 22" is more versatile having a larger cooking surface.

LxWxH is 26 x 9 x 22 inches, and weight is 32 pounds. The 9" height is reduce when you store the two different parts. I'm guessing on mine the burner base is about 5 or 6 inches or so. I have the hooded one which makes the griddle higher. The hood is not a necessary item.

There's not much you cannot cook on a griddle (not grill), and even a meatloaf if so inclined. Think of all the extra steps needed with a grill for chopped items, fish, shrimp, beef tips, etc., so easy on a griddle.

You cannot do this on a "grill" without extra equipment.

Rant over.

p,s., as indicated in the below post, remember, not every grill/griddle is easily convertible to an on-board propane tank. That is then something else to carry.

We decided to go with a Solaire Everywhere infrared grill. It's very compact, easily fitting in the compartment under our 2021 24D's galley window - in the original box. And it's easy to clean up.

We can run it off the small propane tanks, or with a conversion kit, it can also run off the View's outside propane port.

We purchased a small foldable metal table for it to stand on - and that folds up and stores underneath the box for the grill in the compartment. Combined grill and table are still short enough to fit under the inverter on the right side of the compartment, leaving us a lot of space remaining on the left side for other storage.

It’s hard to beat the versatility of a Blackstone. Recently a forum member taught me how to smoke food on the griddle. I tried it and it worked great. I don’t at all like cleaning a grill before packing up for departure. The BS cleans up after a meal in less than 5 minutes. Nothing that can’t be cooked on it. Compact, and stows easily. And it’s cheap compared to other options. Plugs right into QD propane.

Five minutes...that has to be one-handed.

Sorry couldn't resist.

Blackstone also makes a 17" electric version...not for me though.

And, magically, the member who taught me to smoke on the BS appears. The five minutes includes stowing it away in the pass thru, a definite two-handed operation.

Thanks everyone!

Wow….I wasn’t expecting so many great responses, I am looking forward to meeting some of you out on the road. Thank you all for your suggestions, I am beginning to learn that less is more when it comes to RVing, particularly when it comes to simplicity and weight/volume. I will dig in and do my research following your recommendations and hope to get it right first time!
