Dickinson Marine Spitfire 180 BBQ

I finally got around to swapping out the inlet fitting (sent by Dickinson several months ago when I complained about the low flame) on the Spitfire grill yesterday at the campsite. It was a pain to replace, mainly because to get a wrench on the inside nut, I had to remove the shroud which is held in place by 3 screws with tiny nuts, washers and lock washers on the inside. But, the new inlet does improve the grill's performance. Grilled some steaks last night and it did a good job. Still don't think it gets hot enough just yet, but I played with the little slotted piece that controls the fuel/air mixture and was finally able to get a high flame.

re - the photo in post 99 - i agree. Unfortunate that ... that many adaptors are needed.



I'd love to get a male Quick Connect right onto my Camp Chef Ranger 2...... (after a 90 degree elbow) but it doesnt seem easily done.

So does this look right?
Oh that looks cool...

what exactly is the female end?

by chance a 3/8" female?

any chance you have a manufacturer and part #?

I could leave that attached to my Ranger 2 stove, and use my male/female Low flow QC hose to get to Escape.
