exterior propane hookup

Decisions, decision......
I was wondering how many of you have that exterior propane quick connect, and how much of your cooking do you do outside, and on what kind of appliance (BBQ, extra burner unit, others I don't yet know about). Glad you got it, use it a lot or don't use it much?

We use it for a propane fire pit when it's a chilly damp morning in the Pacific NorthWest.

When we were doing our build sheet, we pretty much ordered everything except the oven and screened in porch. We have not used the quick connect yet but are planning to get a propane fire pit. That and the Springfield pedestal are on the shopping list. We have the Weber Q1200 grill but haven't changed it over to use the quick connect yet. But it's there when we want it. Loren

We have it and use the WeberQ1000 BBQ and also a propane fire pit. Definitely one of the options we like. With our previous Escape 19 we had a Porta Chef which we also liked. Both BBQs are easily hooked up to low pressure.

Cheers
Doug

Hi: curru... We have the quick connect and use it all the time. When we picked up the trailer we made a side trip to Surrey BC to get a Spitfire 180 BBQ/ with a flame control http://www.dickinsonmarine.com rather than a regulator. Works well with ETI's system and no more little green bottles. Alf

We use it with a propane fire pit. With states getting more strict about bringing in wood, propane seems like the way to go.

If you do a Google search for "porta chef" in Escapeforum, you'll find lots of discussions of this grill and other appliances that can be connected to the external outlet.

We went with quick connect so we wouldn't have to carry a propane bottle.
We use the quick connect for a small grill and Firebowl.

With the quick connect linked to our trailer tanks I had to learn about low pressure and propane. Important details since I didnt know much about propane.
