I prefer the tried and true Coleman brand in both stoves and lanterns and do such in the RV. The first liquid fuel set I bought were used for over twenty years before I replace them. I have one each of the old style liquid fuel and one each of the LPG in both the stove and the lanterns. Of the spares I keep at the house, only the LPG stove is not a Coleman and all were bought at local garage sales ranging from 3-5 for the lanterns and 7-10 for the stoves.

I agree, Coleman. Tried and true, they always work and parts are plentiful.

I use the Coleman with the griddle and burner options. I have it hooked up to the LP on my coach. It folds and stores easily in the basement. Only problem is when there is a strong breeze as the flame isn't strong enough to overcome it. A simple windbreak solves the problem or we move the cooking inside.

I have several outdoor stoves, but my favorite is the three burner Coleman stove that my Dad bought in 1963. It goes most every camping trip. I also have a Camp Chef Weekender LP gas stove that I also use frequently!

I suppose I could put some kind of inline petcock on the fuel supply line to the generator and then pump fuel right from there into a container. I have their dual fuel lantern and it works great!
I was just re-reading this post and this caught my eye, Dual Fuels??? Unleaded gas, Boy scary sounding too me I've seen gas thrown on to a fire before (Flash Point) and no thanks. Not to mention having to Carrie a gas can or as mentioned from the gennie. That is one gas I have the most high respect for..
I will stick with either Charcoal or propane (1 Lb Bottle)
Be Care full

Thanks, Mel,
I went to look at the site you mentioned and sure enough they have them, still scary too me. I remember kerosene being used (my parents used 50 years ago. I never heard that they used/use Unleaded gas. I'll stick to 1st choice charcoal then Propane.
Love this site.info,info and more info
JMO , Tim

I guess you have to be OLD to have used Colman lanterns and stoves in the winter. As I recall Colman fuel was called “white gas”. When the temps get well below zero it is nice to know you can depend on a white gas stove to start as long as you can pump it up. By the way, the flash point of Colman fuel is real low when it is real cold out.

I fear LP gas leaks more than a can of Colman fuel.

NRR

And I guess you have to be REALLY OLD to remember when all "unleaded" gasoline was known as "white" gas.
"White gas" was used Colman lanterns and stoves as well as fuel for 2 stroke engines......(still is).
See: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_gas

We have used a Holland Companion Grill for the last 9 years. Not cheap but all stainless steel.

It is guaranteed NOT to burn your food but it WILL NOT CHAR A STEAK.

Following the instructions put your chicken pieces, quarters or halves on and 45 minuteslater it is done - you do not have to turn it or check it. Ribs the same thing 45 minutes latrer they are done. I even make and cook a meat loaf.

Hamburgers you have to turn but again it will NOT CHAR.

I also carry a little Weber Smokey Joe to use for a steak when the urge overpowers me
