Yes, I love my scrapple and you do need a low flame to get it crispy. I use a cast iron skillet and cook it for at least 15 minutes.

As to simmering, I recently purchased a Camp Chef Everest. The posts said that simmering was a problem and several comments recommended using a heat diffuser. I've tried out the new stove once and did need to use the heat diffuser to keep from burning salmon. It might work for keeping things at a simmer, also. I got the HIC Heat Diffuser Simmer Plate, 8.25" from Amazon.

Yes, I think its the same one installed in Ian's custom Boler named "Buttercup". The photos are on his website, Proud Canadian

It'd be pretty hard to lug around as a camp stove, but it works nicely in his case as a built-in.

I don't, but a neighbor built one into a home-built van conversion. There are two or three common brands of essentially the same thing, including Coleman. A feature of the Camp Chef version that may be an advantage is the availability of a propane fitting that should allow it to be used with a low-pressure propane port.

Our first Camp Chef- love it, works on the quick connect(with the inexpensive adapter) but don't always take it along. The cover is a good investment as it makes it easier to move around. Oven works great as do the burners.

I purchased a Camp Chef Ranger ll at Cabela's in Kalispell last month for 122.00 US$. So far it has performed beyond my expectations. Easy to hook up to my 19's low pressure outlet. It boils water in the tea kettle roughly twice as fast as the inside stove plus it has built in igniters. Flame adjustability is good from a full boil down to a slow simmer. No problems with wind yet.

Thanks for chiming in. Sounds good to me. I have heard in a few reviews that wind is not an issue. Having an igniter is definitely a handy thing. Fortunately, our SMEV stove inside does have them.

Jim, if you want to check out the Ranger, if your passing thru Canmore send me a PM and we can arrange for you to drop by and see it.

A SMEV stove is what some people may be interested in who have trouble lighting the standard Escape stoves.
