Re: Camp Chef's Outdoor Camp Oven

Aluminum frame Yeh, that sounds good. I just used what I could find in my shop : - ) Ok, you work on the Al prototype, then we'll pass a few ideas back and forth, and then we'll apply for a patent, and sell through Camping World, Wally World and tat big store in Canada : - )
That pizza would look soooo good if I wasn't just STUFFED from T'giving dinner : - )

Re: Camp Chef's Outdoor Camp Oven

I'll add that to my list of projects. I should get at in in a few years.

Re: Camp Chef's Outdoor Camp Oven

It's fairly simple really. You place a heat resistant plate on top of small "pillow" that's half filled with water. It will self level.

Then you leave the area, gingerly, careful not to shake or stir.

Re: Camp Chef's Outdoor Camp Oven

This camp stove looks good.

My question is....I am getting the propane quick connect option on my soon-to-be-made 17B trailer and I would like to know if this camp stove could be attached to the propane quick connect. Anyone know?

Thanks!
Nadia

Re: Camp Chef's Outdoor Camp Oven

Yes the Camp Chief can be connected to the quick disconnect at the trailer. The factory supplies a hose fitting that screws onto your hose. Escape delivery experts will go over the propane system with you.

Re: Camp Chef's Outdoor Camp Oven

Nadia, it should be no problem hooking up. You would need to remove the regulator that comes with the oven (or any other appliance) as the pressure is already regulated(and reduced) by the trailers system.

Re: Camp Chef's Outdoor Camp Oven

Thanks for the replies. I thought that was the case but wanted to make sure. I'll be adding the camp stove to my Christmas list!

Re: Camp Chef's Outdoor Camp Oven

Nadia,
Jim is right, to use the quick disconnect, you will have to either bypass the pressure regulator on the Escape or on the stove (or else you have double reduced - is that possible?). As you can see below, the stove is equipped with a propane stem, to which you attach the pressure regulator. The included extension hose, which works with a larger propane tank, is screwed into the bottom of the regulator. What you will need, is a hose that extends from the quick D/C on the trailer (the gas pressure has ALREADY been reduced at this point), and this hose will then need an attachment which will screw onto the propane stem on the back of the stove (the same type of attachment which is on the reducer pictured). I have the above extension hose, that goes from my trailer to the stove, but I have not modified it as of yet (nor have I figured out how to). My propane guy told me once, that not all of these "made in China" pressure reducers, reduce the same amount, and may, or may not, work on any specific stove. The Escape pressure worked fine on my old stove, and I'm sure it will here. Just have to find the necessary fitting for the hose.
Question for all the engineers out there. If the escape reducer, reduces the propane pressure from 100 psi (for example), to 50 psi, and the included stove reducer would reduce it to 50 psi, wouldn't it just let the gas pass on at 50 psi?? Or would it reduce it again somehow? Not sure exactly how they work if they don't, but everyone says not to double reduce. (there...that should stimulate some action on the forum : - ) )

Re: Camp Chef's Outdoor Camp Oven

I've been trying to figure out a way to make this simpler. Can you use one of these:

Re: Camp Chef's Outdoor Camp Oven

You could Klaus, but you would need a hose to go between as well, as the larger bottle could not hand off the oven like the smaller cylinders do.
