Camp chief stove

Can't find the thread but interested in what people think of the camp chief two burner stove. I am unhappy with my little Coleman stove you cannot control the flame. The camp chief seems heavy but hoping the two burner is a bit lighter. My friends love the griddle that you can buy with it.

Try searching for Camp Chef (not Camp Chief)... my guess is that is what you're looking for.

Discussions of Camp Chef stoves are buried in threads about barbecues (Barbeques - post #42) and low-pressure propane appliances.

Camp Chef makes both high and low pressure stoves so you need to specify the model you are looking at. We have a two burner Camp Chef Everest high pressure stove we love. Previously we had a Camp Chef low pressure stove and the burners were too big and it wouldn't stay lit in any wind so we bought the other one.

Ditto here. We were unjhappy with our Coleman Perfectflow and decided to try the Camp Chef. We bought our Everest in early June and immediately dumped our Coleman. We love the Camp Chef. A little bigger surface compared to the Coleman, sturdier construction, lots of heat and a very low simmer. We use ours on high pressure hooked up to a 5 lb tank. You can buy a case for it but It fits perfectly in the Escape laundry bag we got tat the rally in June.

Scott

We have been using the bag for laundry. It really is a good solution to dirty clothes, wish we had of figured this out ages ago.

I went and looked at the two burner camp chef today on sale for $99. Prob will buy it but it's very big and heavy guess I can put it in my TV not sure where else it would fit. Really like the griddle that goes with it.

It's the Everest low pressure? Not sure I really understand about low and high pressure. Thinking I would like to use a quick connect and the trailer propane tanks.

Ok it was the explorer camp chef stove not sure if I should get it - it's big looks really well built. Or the Everest smaller more portable. One is high pressure and one is low I'm guessing with the right adapter both would work. I want to be able to control the heat and it to stay lit.

I have the pro-30 -- that's their big single-burner. I'm very happy with it, though as others observed it does have some issues with wind.

If I recall correctly, the "mountain" series (which would include everest) are high pressure. They will work fine off a tank, but if you want to connect them to the low pressure outlet on the side of your trailer, you're out of luck. No combination of adapters will work for that.
