Yes, frying as in a fry pan is done on a griddle, basically a fry pan without sides.

The best barbeque belongs to your site neighbors.. and they invite you to use it right after they've finished. You don't have to tote it or clean it! Works for me...

As to griddle and frying, I'm not really sure what purpose is served that can't be served by a large fry pan on a propane or butane burner.
I did have one. It was cast iron, weighed a ton and was a pain to clean. Mine had a convex surface with a gutter around the outside, which meant the butter or oil immediately slid off where it was needed.

I have a big cast iron on, and it stays at our land for use on our wood cook stove. No way it goes in the trailer. Being cast iron, and well seasoned, a simple wipe with a dry towel is all it needs.

What I use when I know I am cooking for a bunch, is a large thing steel griddle, with teflon coating. It is not heavy, but comes along only when needed. I will be doing 4-6 french toast at a time for the breakfast in Osoyoos.

I also have the small one that is an accessory to the Spitfire BBQ, which is great for veggies, or slices of sweet potatoes, while the meat is cooking on the other side.

I wanted to get away from the non stick aluminum pans for various reasons, my choice was either cast iron or stainless, both of which are heavy. Maybe I'll go back to the old west method, using a shovel to cook over the campfire, that is a sure fire way to keep greenhorns from showing up....

This greenhorn would love to see that set up.

Everything I've seen from Europe lists heat output rationally, which means in kilowatts. Here, we live with that is printed in spec sheets and on product packaging for the U.S., so it is (ironically) in British Thermal Units per hour... although even that is often corrupted to just "BTU". Given the lack of accurate published information, it's no wonder that intelligent and supposedly educated people have no clue what the numbers mean.

Not knowing the reasons, an alternative is ceramic coating on aluminum. I recently bought a set of this construction, and so far I'm quite happy with them.

I'm not suggesting this for a camp griddle.

Update on NRX/ Duro portable propane grill

Well I picked up my 17B in Chilliwack on the 12th of May and have driven it back to Calgary through the Shuswap and Jasper just arriving back in Calgary today. I'm happy to report that the standard propane hose supplied with the quick connect option fits right onto the grill. Also after using it every night I can report it puts out plenty of heat and works great for indirect cooking.

Jim. If you've been to Medora, North Dakota, you probably hit the pitchfork fondue dinner. Very tasty, just unnerving when they asked the cowboy cooks if they remembered to clean the pitchforks on the way from the barn to the cookout. Otherwise, good food and a good western show. A Mormon boss of mine used to throw his steak right on the wood coals, liked the fact that there was no pans to clean and got plenty of carbon in his diet. Said that's how they did it in Utah as Boy Scouts. Takes all kinds.

That's true. I was born and raised in Utah, and earned my "cooking" merit badge in the Boy Scouts by cooking meat directly on the coals. It can be done, but its not my preference. If you try it, make sure you blow on the coals to remove the surface ash and then put the meat on immediately.

My Boy Scout cooking specialty was cooking eggs without utensils. Bacon and eggs in a paper sack, egg on a stick egg in an orange rind and egg baked in a mud ball. We had a lot of good times with the dutch ovens, cast iron skillets, pie irons, and cast iron griddles but did not get much for mileage pulling a trailer loaded with all that iron and heavy canvas tents. I was not in Boy Scouts as a youngster but joined up when my son became of age. Had three long trip high adventures to 22 different states, graduated ten Eagle Scouts and garnered a lifetime of memories as Scoutmaster and the Outdoorsman. Saw two troops on my tour of a local campground last night, did my heart good to see the boys using their mess kits and having fun.

Grills fit in the kitchen sink at home; soap and water does a great job. I use a paint scraper on the inside of the fire box along with a half dozen paper towels. PITA, but my wife has a thing against mold (go figure ).

Am I supposed to clean it?

Actually, I just do the burn off thing, and use a brass brush to scrub off the remaining gunk. About once a year, or more depending on how much it is used, and what it is used for, I use a brush to clean out the burning chamber.

We did clean the outside with Bar Keepers Friend once, after using it near Zion, and having thousands of tiny aphid like insects keep landing on it during use, and each one turned into a tiny black spot.
