Mostly I don't use it.
I have used it on my butane one-burner stove. With the flame turned fully down, oven temp was 350F. Since I was re-heating pulled pork I didn't want it that high so I put in on the Weber Q grill with the lid raised. Got it down to 225F that way.
I've never used it in the trailer.
I have thought of leaving it at home to save weight.
If I'm going to roast a chicken, I use the Q.
If I need cookies, I go to Safeway.

Just keeps getting better. ETI informed me yesterday that our Spitfire 180 arrived (we ordered it from the factory directly and had them ship it to Chilliwack from Surrey) and is safely stored in our trailer. Christmas in March!

Wow, 3 years ago shipping to Calgary was only $40. Hope you enjoy the BBQ as much as we do.

Ours was shipped from Surrey to ETI for about $41 CAD.

Ours cost that much in extra gas when we drove into Surrey to pick it up after picking up our 19'. Driving in vancouver rush hour traffic immediately after hooking up our 19' for the very first time was a blast. Kidding!

I'm still trying to decide if I prefer the Spitfire 180 or my Weber Q. Problem with the Spitfire was getting the heat low enough to roast a chicken half without cremating it. Dickinson sent me a new regulator under warranty and I'll be comparing this spring.

Jim, I am going to get the Spitfire 80 grill like you mentioned on a previous Forum discussion. I too have the quick connect installed. You mention "I bought the parts for the hose and connections from Fairview Fittings". What other parts for the hose and connections are needed? Thanks

As an Alberta resident, I certainly don't want the tax any more coordinated between the provinces. Both have exactly that same federal GST (Goods and Services Tax), and they both have clear provincial sales tax: B.C. charges 7%, and Alberta charges none. If a product shipped from B.C. to Alberta gets taxed by B.C., I'm okay with that - it would be the same as walking into the B.C. store, paying the appropriate tax, and giving the product to a courier to send it to Alberta... and that's basically what's happening.

The B.C. sales tax on the Spitfire - if it is even charged on a sale to an Alberta resident - would be about $21 (at the $299 price quoted earlier) to $29 (at the $420 list price shown on the web site). That's a big range, but I don't know now meaningful "list price" is in this case. I'm not sure what is adding up to make the $80 difference, or even which location was cheaper.
