Heating a can of beets is not cooking. So, I can do that inside.
Beer, I can drink inside or outside.

Glenn - you will never want to go camping in an isolated spot in the desert southwest after finishing watching that series!

Very interesting thread. Our experience with propane grills has been poor so we reverted back to a smokey joe. Weber makes a cordura bag for it that fits perfectly for storage and transit. Much more control of the heat, but you have to carry charcoal. I found a petfood bin with a flip top lid at Walmart that filled halfway lasts about a month, and leaves room for the chimney, lighter and newspaper laying inside on top of the charcoal.

Someone said it works for the dutch oven, thanks for the tip, Chris just got me one but it is a 12" so it might not fit in the Joe.

But I was thinking of finding a newer propane stove to hook to the outlet on the side of the trailer that might have better temp control than our very old coleman propane camp stove, so I didnt have to buy the little bottles anymore.

I broke down 2 years ago and bought a new Coleman 2 burner, replacing our old Coleman propane. The new one, with the newer style burner adjusts much better and now both burners work well, as opposed to only the one near the gas bottle.

I started using a Volcano grill for my camping trips last year. Three available fuel options. Has the versatility to grill, fry, boil sea food, bake, holds a 12' DO and can be used as a small outdoor fire pit. Outside stays cool enough to touch. Compacts down into a small holding bag for transporting.

Thanks for the feedback everybody. I'm a little concerned about the stoves blowing out in windy conditions. I guess I'll think on it a little before I commit...

My outdoor stove will remain my Coleman Peak 1 "backpacking" stove. They are dependable, compact and last forever. I replaced my last one after about 25 years just because I was ready for new. I have tent camped for years with this on less than 1gallon of fuel per season.

Don't see name on the stove like they show on line but it looks like this one.
Coleman - PerfectFlowâ„¢ 2-Burner Propane Stove
FWIW the model # on mine is 5466A, the label says Propane Camp Stove. Didn't know there were so many to choose from till I looked online.

I've got one of the Coleman combo burner/grill stoves. But to be honest, have never thought too much of the grill side of the stove. The lid and the wings keep the wind from dispersing the heat and the flame though. I have an adaptor that allows me to run the stove off of the main bottle rather than the small 1 lb bottles. I keep a few of those on hand just in case.
