Ok, we made our first trip in the new to us camper. No one died, we all seemed to do ok. But, my goal is for us to not live in the camper when we are camping.

I'd prefer to cook outside unless the weather or bugs are an issue. I brought my Coleman 2 burner stove with us but we didn't use it. I'd like to have the option of cooking and grilling outside when we camp. But, this appliance will be stored I side so it needs to be clean and small enough to store.

So, what affordable exterior grill/stove are you using?

I have older model of THIS GRILL and use it even at home when we sit on rooftop.
Once I disconnect the regulator, it will fit into the space freed from removing 7 gallons propane cylinder in my camper. I hate carrying dead weight, so plug 1 of the hoses and use single cylinder for my summer camping.

Depends on your definition of small...I use a 2-burner camp chef stove with the grill box. Not small, but I’m able to store it inside our trailer so it might meet your needs. There are also some nice portable grill/stoves by Coleman, Cuisinart, and other companies.

After several years of using a Weber Q1000 we switched to a Blackstone 17" griddle. The Weber was great and is still used at home but it was limited to grilling. With the Blackstone, we now can cook the meat, vegetables, bacon, eggs, and just about anything we want. Takes up less space. We carry it in the backseat, same place as the Weber and notice less smell from the Blackstone. The Weber was inside two garbage bags but the Weber is only under the cover.

The flavor on the Blackstone is a bit different, but we are slowly learning to get the flavors we like. One key thing to reduce cook time is buy a dome which helps hold the heat onto the food.

If it's only 2 eating, the 17" is doable, but for more look at the 22" as the extra width makes it a bit easier. Both are usually available at Walmart for same day pickup. Not the cheapest thing, but cheaper than my Weber and they are built to last so you won't have to replace every year.

I saw a review of that today. Can you put a pot on it with water to boil water as well?

I have the Coleman that has both a griddle and a burner. It's slim puts out good heat

We also have the slim Coleman Grill

There are just the two of us and it fits our needs very well!

I have a Q with a griddle but will be switching to the blackstone. I use the griddle way more and the shape of the blackstone is just easier to deal with in a TC.
