    Electric grills

    Shopping for a grill and noticed a lot of electric grills for indoor and outdoor use. Has anyone thought of using an electric grill outdoors for cooking instead of gas? Most of them are easy clean up and you can add flavor by adding wood chips if you like. I even found some that have removable legs or for table top use.

    We have a WeberQ electric grill and love it. Easy cleanup. We plug it into the 20 amp outlet on the RV Park shore power box, because it can pull a lot of amps and trip the RVs outside outlet circuit breakers.

    Re: Electric grills

    That's a good question, me and my wife have been talking about getting a new grill cause the one that came with the camper leaves a little to be desired. We've had our eye on a camco 5500 but its gas not electric. We hadnt thought about an electric one so i'll be curious to see everyone else's thoughts on your question. This forum always has good questions and replies.

    Had George Forman grill. Didn’t like it. And it was messy. Also found the digital thermometers didn’t like it either.

    George Forman all the way. I let DW cook so I let her pick. I clean up.

    Weber Q200 gas, not bad for picnic table cooking. I line the inside under the grill with foil to ease cleaning. Also carry a Weber bullet smoker at times. If you have the room check out Traeger

    We’e been using a Traeger PGT pellet smoker grill for the last couple of years and like it much better than the gas or other electric. Being from Texas we love smoked BBQ. I even smoked some salmon last year on our Alaska trip.

    Re: Electric grills

    Personally I don't care for electric grills as you're tethered to a power plug.
    For camping I use a Baby Q from Weber, both portable and durable. Just upgrade it to use a typical 20# tank.

    At home I use a Weber propane and a Traeger Pro pellet smoker.

    Electric grills

    We had a great little propane grill, the O-Grill.

    However, hearing great things about pellet grill/smokers (electric), we ended up buying a used one (Green Mountain Grill Davy Crockett) from my boss.

    Now we won't ever go back to cooking with gas!!
