Single burner grill (propane) with wind shield?

I don't really want a big two-burner Coleman stove, but I'd like a single burner stove that would have some protection from wind. Any suggestions? All I see in the type with sides and back to protect from wind are two-burner stoves.

Can not find any propane singles with wind shields, there are some nice single butane stoves.

Someone I know has a portable wind shield but I've also never seen those available.

Which two-burner stoves are fairly compact and lightweight? (That people have used?)

Not a grill but a single burner stove, either liquid fuel.

MSR Gourmet Cooking stoves

Solid Heat Reflector with Windscreen for MSR liquid fuel and remote-burner canister stoves.

I have this stove and shield. It's very effective and simmers quite well.

What my friend had was folding, in three or four sections. I'll have to see if I can find one. I don't really want a backpacking style burner as the pot doesn't sit as securely on one.

I think I can see why some people take the stove out of the camper- if you are going to carry a separate stove to cook outside, why double the weight?

I am 50/50 on cooking outside vs inside. Morning coffee always made on the stove inside. Nice to have the option on wet, windy cold days to cook inside the trailer. I use the main propane tank for both stoves so the additional weight (only abt 10lbs) & space taken for the small 2 burner outside stove (packs up flat and fits in a hatch )really isnt a big issue and its really nice to have the flexibly.

A couple of other makes to look at are Camp Chef and Stansport. Outdoorgearlab.com has some camping Stove reviews which are worth a read.

Here's one that's a little different than the normal single burner stove. Not sure if this would meet your needs though.

I use a wind shield for Dutch oven cooking that would work for any small propane stove. Go to the roofing section at Home Depot or Lowes and buy a roll of aluminum valley. Cut a length that will make a circle about 2' across. Put a binder clip on the top and bottom overlapped edges. Put the stove in the middle, no wind. For storage, roll the shield up tight and use the binder clips to hold it compressed.

How about this one. It's two burner but offers some wind protection and is pretty small.

I looked on the Coleman page and they have that small 2 burner for less than Ebay.
Coleman - Coleman- PerfectFlow

I agree with cpaharley that little Biolite is a nice unit. It also has an optional grill attachment. Quite an invention. Seriously looking at getting one this spring.

Hmm, tempting since it can run on pellets, but then I'd have to carry pellets. Dry hardwood twigs are not plentiful in the Northwest. But a little more than I want to spend, and I don't need the charging capability as I have two backup batteries for my iPad. Almost worth it for the novelty, though! (And I have my 20% off coupon.)

Well, yes. In about 1972 or thereabouts.

I've seen those canister-top ones but I'd be worried about balancing a tea kettle on something that high and not necessarily very stable. Plus it magnifies the wind problem. I'm more likely to get one of the little single burner ones that are square and sit low. I'm still thinking it over and maybe I'll find one at a garage sale. Still seems odd they don't make the clamshell type in a one-burner, though.
