    grill type for your rv

    I have been researching grills for my 29RS GD and wanted to get a griddle type but, my better side told me NO GRIDDLE but she was ok with us purchasing a pellet grill that would fit into the exterior cooking area on the 29RS. It has plenty of room for the grill and storage bens filled with pellets. The one we are looking at is the Traeger Ranger portable grill it does require a 120 volt source at 3 amps and the refrigerator in the exterior area is 120 volts as well so we could use a drop cord and move the grill to a area where the wind isn't blowing. Has anyone used this grill or a pellet grill while rving? Thanks ed

    I have the Napoleon Travel Q285 and love but we are planning on adding the GMG Davie Crockett to the collection or maybe even replacement. However, the Napoleon those come with the criddle so it might not be replaced.

    I use this...
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    It is a cheap grill, you can mount it on the side of your RV or stand it on a table. It was mounted to a used trailer that I bought and used for about two years. I liked it and it got the job done, so I bought one for my new trailer. It's large enough, as we are only two people. I am not going to mount it, however. I think I will use it only on a tabletop.

    I have a Treager smoker, similar to the Tailgater. It has a larger cooking surface than the Ranger. I removed the collapsible legs and built a small stand for it to sit on. Smoker sits in the back of the truck bed. With the legs off, tonneau cover fits over it. I can use it as a grill, but mostly as a slow smoker. Amazing meals

    We currently use the trigger ranger and really like it. It comes with both a griddle so we can do bacon by the pound as well as a grill for regular barbecuing. Do be careful of the grease run off if you are doing bacon make sure that it is all draining out the end, not overflowing into the fire burner area. Don't ask me how I know that, butit was exciting. The only downside is the weight.

    Been there, done that on the grease fire. Just keep the lid closed till it's burned out or close to burnt out. Hamburgers and bacon will make a greasy mess and then cooking slow, it will never ignite. Then; fire up the grill nice and hot for a steak and things get exciting. KEN

    We second the Green Mountain Davy Crockett pellet Grill/smoker. We've had ours for a couple of years, and it goes everywhere with us. A big + is that it runs on 120vac or 12vdc. It's a bit heavy, but manageable.

    I dropped a 12v cord out of the propane area from the battery and put a anderson connector on the end. I made an adaptor from 12v power to anderson to plug in. KEN

    Thanks for the ideas, one question on the Ranger is, how long does it take to warm up to 350 degrees ? Is it a slow process or in 10 minutes is it ready to cook? Thanks
