Camp Chef 2 burner stove


Since most of my camping is now going to be out of the truck with a family of four and I seem to have given away all my old Colemans I have been looking at the bigger 2 burner stoves.... with the truck and the space I have and the fact that we like to cook they seem pretty great.
Heck, I'm carrying enough fridge/freezer space to go days on end with food and beverages.

I could get by with a smaller and less expensive set up, too, but having that space to throw the cast iron on is great.

I always seem to have a BBQ grill with me, too, that some rocks circled up make for great BBQ'ing or sometimes I bring the mini-Weber but I like the rocks for ease of use and if I want a lid on something foil works.

I have had a guy recommend the Jetboil stoves but some of the reviews of them are not so great and they are expensive.

Dilemmas....

Get a cast iron combo grill/griddle. Can use it over the campfire or on the propane stove.

Primes, Coleman, camp chef,... used 'em all.
They are low tech, and virtually identical,.. suggest you select on price.

I hit mine with a swipe of canola oil when heated up and before grilling, easier to get food off when cooked

I have used a "Partner's Stove" made for river running; indestructible, comes with its' own stand, and also comes with a 'blaster'..... combination propane burner and jet engine on its' own propane lead. The blaster can boil an extra-large cowboy coffee pot in less than 5 minutes, and turn a dutch oven into rubbish if you're not careful (blackened catfish was my specialty). Highly recommended. 4-burner. Have used it from The Salmon and Snake, the Colorado/Green rivers, and Baja. Still as good as new. Research the company, they're the real deal. Also have 2-burners as well, but better to have and not need than need and not have, que no? Happy cooking.

Thanks, kind of what I am concluding.... I do like the 4 burner suggest above.... looks really functional and well built.

4 burners for one family car camping? If I need a 4 burner stove, I will stay home!

On car camping trips requiring cooking for double-digit crowds, we bring multiple stoves.

Those deep stove cavities are hard to clean. I prefer the stoves w/o recessed areas.

Cool, I guess I won't see you out there, then! No skin off my back.

Choices are great.
I will probably go with the two burner because that is all I need but whatever blows your skirt up.

$295? Looks like the Coleman he gave away. I found a clean 2-burner Coleman at the thrift store a couple months ago - $12.00. If I need a third burner, I always have a backpacking stove. You can get them for $8.00 from China. I have two - they work great.

We, my boys and I, seem to have accumulated 1-2-3 and 4 burner stoves, cast iron all. The 4 burner is the least useful and the hardest to regulate . A couple of one burners in a large camp are really handy to keep things hot away from the main cook area make coffee etc...2-3 burners get the most use. I think we have about 7 stoves all told...Most the garden variety Cabelas type...All useful for different reasons and size camps...lotsa fun trying to decide...

We had a Camp Chef two burner in Bahia. Tulo saw it and bartered it away from me for some work. Haven't replaced it yet but that sucker put out some heat!

I like the idea of a 2 burner "main" stove and one or two single burners. A lot of flexibility with that setup

Yeah, there are some nice options out there.

Good to have options and it seems we all have our requirements for size, quality, lack thereof or types of use.

I believe I have all the information I need!
