We picked up a Napoleon at Costco in Nanaimo a few years ago, and it works well. the legs fold in, and it fits into a carry bag. Canadian product, just another option.

Does anybody have an experience with the Camp Chef stoves and grill boxes? I was looking for a stove that works off the low pressure connect and ran across these. I was thinking I'd order one, along with the grill box, and try it out this summer.

I have heard some good things about them, Doug. I too want to get a stove for low pressure usage, and preferably on that can be converted back easily too. I say buy one, give it a good go, and report back with how well it performed.

For me, one of the biggest things I want in a new campstove, other than being low pressure adaptable, is to find one that has good controls, and can be turned down to a real low simmer with no problem. I am getting sick and tired of turning a Coleman down to almost out, and when I let go of the control, the flame jumps back up higher again.

Not as small as a Coleman, but this one looks good. Click on photo to open link.

Yup, barring any strong negative feedback I run across, I will likely go ahead with the Camp Chef purchase. The one thing holding me back is that I can't find a place that will ship the stove I want to Canada. So I'm waiting on better weather to do a road trip south of the border.

Hi Doug here is a link Costco.ca sells Camp Chef.

Camp Chef Denali 3x Triple Burner Camp Stove

This 3 burner collapes down into its own carrying bag and runs on low pressure.

That 3 burner does look great, but with the BBQ, we really would not need the extra burner. I was even wondering at the size of the 2 burner I linked to, and where I would stow it. Plus, the 3 burner is 71 lbs, vs the 33 lbs (which is still heavy), for the 2-burner.

yes, the 3 burner is a behemoth. i wonder if the cast iron dutch oven makes a significant contribution to the overall weight.

Different name then the one I linked to, but it looks the same, with the same specs. Available at amazon.ca.
http://www.amazon.ca/Camp-Chef-Sport...amp+chef+stove

Backcountry.com delivers to Canda. I have bought there may times with great service.

Way cheaper at Walmart in the US

I bet you are right that the dutch oven adds to the weight, and they are not light. Still, these stoves use cast iron burners, not the stamped steel like Coleman uses nowadays.
