I line the inside surface of the Weber with foil which makes cleanup a snap. Each week of camping I re-line the Weber and then throw it all away when we get home. It makes a huge difference!

Thanks everyone, we will move forward with the option and the Spitfire grill!

We will be looking at at the Spitfire down the road! Hopefully we will be able to see one up close at the rally in Osoyoos!

I will have mine there again, Scott. Better get it cleaned up, it got a lot of hard use last year.

I elected not to get the quick connect on my 5.0. The reasons are as follows: (1) Knowing how clumsy I am, I would probably trip on the line being so close to the trailer. (2) I don't like cooking too close to the trailer cause I don't want the smoke getting into the trailer or getting the awning discolored or dirty & (3) I don't want to buy a too expensive grill cause I don't like cleaning it. After a year or two I just throw out the grill and buy a new cheap weber gas grill for $50.00. No worries of low pressure propane or removing a regulator. I bought a lite fiberglass 10 pound propane tank and hook that up to my inexpensive stove and grill. I keep the tank with the other trailer tanks when traveling. Enjoy.

Roger, it is easy to keep the line out of the way. I have a 15' (I think) hose, which is long enough to get well away, though I do tend to set up under the awning often due to rain. As far as the cleaning goes, can't offer any help there. I do need to do my grill, and expect to spend 30 minutes to do it, which is a once a year thing.

I guess with the 5.0 there is room for your 3rd tank with the trailer ones. Something not available to the other model trailers.

My buddy "Felix" ( and I'm Oscar according to the Old Bag ) keeps a sparkling grill. But, I'm quite sure I read somewhere that you only have to run it on high for a half hour or so, once in a while, to burn off the accumulation. I'm sure that's what it said. Somewhere.
I do use a 10 lb. tank and used to have a 5 lb. at one time. Not a problem to store or move to wherever I want the BBQ, which might include a neighbor's campsite.

I do have the low pressure propane connection and use it all the time. I even bought the weber cast iron griddle for the baby q to add more versatility = more cooking in the great outdoors. Being on week one of the post Xmas diet has me looking ahead and fantasizing between french toast or pancakes for the first breakfast morning of the spring trip.

On a little more serious note I've also been researching another low pressure device for that connection. Does anyone in the Escape community have a campfire in a can? Another nice BC company, great reviews, and with that quick connect it would be a great no fuss way of getting a little evening ambiance and heat after the cooking and the dishes are done ;-)

Just bring a pair of rubber ones too. You might just have to scrub it up a bit before inspection.
