What kind of stove/grill.....

Does everyone use while camping? I have a propane stove upon which I can cook, with utensils, meals and coffee. However I found this interesting grill and after using it, I love it. It was made for developing countries in 90's in order to utilize corn cobbs as fuel. I use 8-9 briquets and can cook for 2-3 hours. It can be used like a crock pot, low heat and slow cooks. But you can also grill with high heat burgers/dogs/veggies like a conventional grill.

That looks like a pretty interesting unit... but it seems a little pricey to me. I guess the ones for the developing countries didn't come in the deluxe stainless version, huh? I'm going to bookmark the site, but I fear it will be a while before I can scrape together that much available trailer $$$ what with the other replacements and upgrades I'm facing. It would be a great finishing touch, though!

The grill sometimes go on sale for less than $100 in the porcelain/enamel version. That is really all you need, the other accessories do not appear to be that critical.

Oh, Kevin....you make me want to hunt up the White Gas Coleman that used to be my parent's when I was a kid....I'm thinking it's at least 50 years old since I'm...ahem...a bit older than that and it was around when I was 7 or 8.

Currently, we used the propane model that is also at least 30 years old. We add a full length cast aluminum griddle for cooking pancakes and such as that. But, I'm on the search for a small cast iron griddle instead.

When we have electricity we take our 2 person George Foreman grill and electric tea kettle.

For group camping we'll haul out our Freedom 300 tail-gate grill:

Wow, Kevin! That 40 year old Coleman doesn't look like it's ever been fired up. I got out my little old two burner propane stove to carry me through until I get the two burner cook top bought and installed. As it is, I don't have to hang that big old propane bottle on the tongue yet.

I do most of my cooking on my Trillium stove but I also have a Coleman stove ( less than 40 years old...LOL) and I also use my $20. portable BBQ. I have a folding Coleman oven too that sits on the burners and it's great for heating/cooking buns etc.
The Cobb grill certainly looks interesting but how on earth could anyone in a developing country afford one? How were they produced/distributed, I wonder? Government grant to the producer and donated to the end user?

Here is the brief history, naturally the ones used in elsewhere made use of local resources.

I have a similar one that was in the Mother-in-laws basement when we cleaned it out. She used it for one week and then it sat on a shelf still in it's original container since 1964. We'll be taking it with us next week to the Ont Bolerama.

Good new info!

I inherited the same unit with my Bigfoot. I haven't used it yet, but I'm thinking it will do just fine!

Having said that, I am interested in the fact that the cobb can be used as a slow cooker while we are out training dogs for the day. But clean-up while dry camping is always an issue with respect to water.

So far I have just cooked on my inside stove top, since it's there and requires no extra setup. But I also have one of those classic Coleman outdoor stoves, which my family used on our small handful of camping trips when I was a kid in the 70s.

Wow, Jim. Thanks for the tip. L ks promising, and you've actually used (and love) it. That's a great recommendation.

I'm one of those who prefers NOT to carry an additional Coleman stove and fuel, so I do most cooking inside the Casita. But, of course, there are times it would be nice to be oriented more to the great outdoors - especially when camping with friends and/or family. We might have to get one of these...

El cheapo $20 portable propane BBQ and propane Colman sometimes. My wife is pretty creative as we only used to use the BBQ while tenting on motocycle trips. Frozen waffles cook up quite nicely on the BBQ

Almost all our cooking is done outside. The most used are; a portable BBQ and a butane stove. On serviced sites, we also use an electric kettle and a single burner range.
