Glen--where in your trailer do you put your Weber for travelling? And does it move around?
Our firepit I think will fit in the bathroom with a towel wrapped around it. New one from Costco this year (and it comes with a lid) one we bought a year ago did not last--so returned it..

Folding bikes in the back of the vehicle. We have been putting the Weber (baby Q) on the back seat but would rather have it in the trailer.

My thought exactly, if I use propane it is inside, otherwise outside is B-R-B-Que with a grill or campfire.Just got a new one, itching to try http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The Weber rides in the aisle in the middle of the trailer, atop a 2' x 5' Walmart runner ( rug? ). I have another box that contains the 10 lb. propane tank and misc. stuff that rides along side. It's been on some pretty rough roads and seems to stay put.

For cooking outside, I use the Weber Q and one or two butane stoves. These don't have wings so you do have to shelter them, but they burn hot on high to boil water quickly. They are light weight and cost about $30. Many brands, all the same.
If I wanted to simmer, I'd use one of the three propane burners in the trailer.

Does the Everest simmer down low well?

What is the delivery pressure in the trailer? I am sure I heard it somewhere, but forget.

If you wanted to cook inside, you could just do that at home.
I know, I know, you would not be able to travel to fun places that way though.

I know we all use our RVs for different reasons, but for me, there is something about cooking outside is soooo much more appealing than cooking inside. While camping that is pretty much all I have done, both in backcountry travel, or with any trailer I have had. This is true for all my family and friends that camp with us too, cooking and eating outside is just another part of the social atmosphere of camping.

I don't for a minute expect that others should feel the same way, just stating my preference.

The Everest is very good adjusted down low and is stable and does not blow out. I built a manometer and set the trailer gas pressure at around 11.5 inH2O. I'm with you and always prefer to cook outside unless the weather is really bad then I consume alcohol inside...

If you consume enough alcohol the weather won't seem so bad.
That has worked for me a bunch of time.

Here's the thing. I consider grilling The Only salmon on the BBQ to be cooking, and I do that outside.
Heating a can of beets is not cooking. So, I can do that inside.
Beer, I can drink inside or outside.

I'm on Netflix, two and a half seasons into Breaking Bad.
You'll have to wait. I don't know yet.

Glenn - you will never want to go camping in an isolated spot in the desert southwest after finishing watching that series!

Very interesting thread. Our experience with propane grills has been poor so we reverted back to a smokey joe. Weber makes a cordura bag for it that fits perfectly for storage and transit. Much more control of the heat, but you have to carry charcoal. I found a petfood bin with a flip top lid at Walmart that filled halfway lasts about a month, and leaves room for the chimney, lighter and newspaper laying inside on top of the charcoal.

Someone said it works for the dutch oven, thanks for the tip, Chris just got me one but it is a 12" so it might not fit in the Joe.

But I was thinking of finding a newer propane stove to hook to the outlet on the side of the trailer that might have better temp control than our very old coleman propane camp stove, so I didnt have to buy the little bottles anymore.

I broke down 2 years ago and bought a new Coleman 2 burner, replacing our old Coleman propane. The new one, with the newer style burner adjusts much better and now both burners work well, as opposed to only the one near the gas bottle.

I started using a Volcano grill for my camping trips last year. Three available fuel options. Has the versatility to grill, fry, boil sea food, bake, holds a 12' DO and can be used as a small outdoor fire pit. Outside stays cool enough to touch. Compacts down into a small holding bag for transporting.

Thanks for the feedback everybody. I'm a little concerned about the stoves blowing out in windy conditions. I guess I'll think on it a little before I commit...

My outdoor stove will remain my Coleman Peak 1 "backpacking" stove. They are dependable, compact and last forever. I replaced my last one after about 25 years just because I was ready for new. I have tent camped for years with this on less than 1gallon of fuel per season.

Don't see name on the stove like they show on line but it looks like this one.
Coleman - PerfectFlowâ„¢ 2-Burner Propane Stove
FWIW the model # on mine is 5466A, the label says Propane Camp Stove. Didn't know there were so many to choose from till I looked online.

I've got one of the Coleman combo burner/grill stoves. But to be honest, have never thought too much of the grill side of the stove. The lid and the wings keep the wind from dispersing the heat and the flame though. I have an adaptor that allows me to run the stove off of the main bottle rather than the small 1 lb bottles. I keep a few of those on hand just in case.
