I would have responded to the topic posted, but now I can't find it.
I had a two burner stove in the tent trailer and rarely used it. Outside I had a Coleman 2-burner and a Broil King Porta-Chef BBQ. I added a butane fueled single-burner Thunder Range and soon found myself bringing it inside so I could make coffee fast in the morning.
As I can barely move before coffee, I would set the Thunder Range on the sink cover where I could reach it without getting out of my sleeping bag. It boiled water in about half the time of the propane
stove. I had the thermos and filter holder, loaded with grounds, ready the night before.
If you asked the Old Bag, she'd swear that the only reason I had to have that cup of coffee is so I could switch to beer as soon as possible.
Anyway, we ordered the Escape
with the three burner stove. Maybe we'll actually use all three burners at some point, but after six days camping, I finally lit a burner tonight. Dinner was onion-fried potatoes, fried mushrooms and a shared prime-rib steak. With the potatoes and onions on the Thunder Range outside, and the steak on the BBQ, I needed a burner for the mushrooms. Old Bag didn't even notice than there was no veg.
So, more directly to the topic, with the propane
burners inside and my Thunder Range and BBQ outside, I have all the options I need.
The Thunder Range is inexpensive ( $25 - $40 ), runs on compact, fairly cheap butane tanks, is light
, and measures about 12" x 12" x 5". It is fast and hot.
I have a Weber Q 110 that a friend insisted I buy, but I might put it away for a rainy day and take the Broil King next trip. Haven't quite decided. You alway love the BBQ you know and I'm still getting to know this one.
Choosing your combustible devices really comes down to how you cook and what you cook.
