Default Handy Grill / Griddle

I love pancakes for breakfast when camping. We do almost all of our cooking outside. I have a Coleman Stove and a small BBQ. For pancakes, we use a grill (just like the one in the photo) on top of the BBQ. I put the BBQ top on top of the grill while cooking the pancakes to keep the heat in.

Pretty easy to make eight pancakes at once this way.



The grill is just a little wider than the BBQ and not quite as deep. This allows it to sit on the side edges of the BBQ and not cause the BBQ flame to go out.

Do they both use small 1 or 2lb propane tanks? Where do you store them when traveling?

Yes, they both use 1lb propane tanks.

I store the Coleman in the large exterior side compartment. I also keep a few 1lb propane tanks in there.

I store the small BBQ in the rear. The BBQ can get smelly so I put it in a plastic garbage bag and no more BBQ smell in the van.

I have a Quick Connect hose for the built in propane tank and two propane extension hoses that I really should use instead of the 1lb tanks. I bought a splitter so I should be able to run both the Coleman and the BBQ at the same time from the van's propane tank.

I haven't tried it yet.

Here's what the splitter looks like:

I bought the splitter from Propane Products. Looks like they are out of stock right now.
