Hi Lynn,
My all time favorite is a skin on salmon fillet. Tail fillets are best.
Rub fish fillet with olive oil, sprinkle on seasonings, let rest 10 minutes or so ,
Place on grill skin side down ... medium heat (if using charcoal ... indirect heat side)add thumb diameter size 10" alder limb -remove bark ... fresh is best , close lid. A white fat will ooze out when near done ... let this just think of drying out .... you are done! Pretty simple .... no flipping required. The skin keeps the flesh from burning.

Second favorite is skin on chicken breasts.

Third favorite ... frog legs and bellys .... but that is another story.

Tom

I have the quick connect but I only use it for my campfire in a can. I still can't get it to work with my stove or Weber grill. I bought an adapter but I have not been successful!

propane

Your weber/ stove are probably looking for higher pressure than the ETI external propane supply QC delivers. Most portable BBQ's etc have a regulator built in that already reduces the pressure from the cylinders, so the low pressure delivered from the ETI QC will not work.

If there is a regulator on the appliance you are trying to hook up to the ETI QC propane then you need to get that out of the line, otherwise you will not get any gas to the appliance.

But you need to pick a BBQ that has flame control separate from the regulator. If they are together then it won't work.

First time testing the QC was at the Quartzsite gathering this Feb. Over the week, I ran the propane fire pit 6 of the 7 nights for an avg of 3 hours a night, cooked all meals using bbq and stove, cooked chorizo/egg breakfast burritos for the masses all week, and my daughter made sopapilla's for the masses on Sat on the camp stove. Used the furnace some and water heater every day for shower. Only used 1 of the two tanks over the 7 days. This was an intentional test week for how the QC would perform and how much it used. I'm no longer worried about running out of propane with the 2 tanks on the tongue and using the QC for the appliances along with other normal uses. I used to carry a 3rd propane tank in a milk carton base, but very happy now that I can eliminate it.

Such great assistance everyone! Much appreciated!
We will go with the QC, propane fire pit and a small BBQ!

Tom, if you slow the cooking down a bit, this white ooze will not happen, and instead stay as flavour in the meat. My wife taught me this last year.

The recipe sounds great. Lisa cooks lots of salmon, at least once a week. We would have it more if it was not so darn expensive to buy here.

Lynn, this was the low pressure and propane issue I was writing about earlier in this thread. I was on a huge learning curve. I had to take the regulators off both the Firebowl and my small grill.

So, let me get this straight- The QC has it's own regulator? So I can't run my Honda propane generator off it?
