What type of outdoor stove is best?

I am new to full time RVing and want to purchase some type of outdoor stove. I am heading to AZ this winter and doing some boondocking. What type of outdoor cooking stove would you recommend? I appreciate any suggestions you may offer. Thanks

One than is portable and fits comfortably in your cargo box without disassembly. So measure H,W,& D before you shop.

I have a 2 burner propane Coleman that works great. I can use either the 1lb cans or hook up to a 20lb or to RV tank.

I have a Coleman Road Trip Grill and have used it for about 5 years. My take on things is that, as much as possible, RV equipment needs to be multifunctional. This unit comes with three different tops to do stove top cooking, slotted grilling and solid grilling(pancakes, bacon, etc) It does a good job of all three and cleanup is easy. I connect mine to my main tank but could also hook up a portable tank.

Highly recommend Camp Chef stoves and other products. We have a 3 burner and a 2 burner but only travel with the 3 now. Also have their pizza oven, which fits over two burners and it's the bomb! Every time I make a pizza, which is every weekend we are camping, i get visitors and/or lookers eyeing up my dinner!

If you get a hose like this you can hook up to larger tanks.

You just say "stove"......what type of cooking do you want to do? You want to grill a
hot dog, or simmer a pot of stew? Each answer would require a different cooking
appliance.

I would say most do grilling outdoors since it produces the most smoke
and is not appropriate indoors.

Im thinking about getting the coleman dual fuel stove (walmart 99 bucks). It can burn either coleman fuel or unleaded gasoline. I like the idea of having another option other than propane although I'm still up in the air about how best to store the fuel or even if its safe. 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!

Cowboy cooking

Real outdoor cooking with wood or charcoal like cowboys and boy scouts is the way to go. Welcome to the Cowboy Campfire Grills Website Anything else is like cooking in your house, patio and back yard. Why not use a Geo Forman grill plugged into your RV. It can be used inside or outside the Rv.

I have a Primus propane camp stove and love it. It is compact and light weight. Coleman makes a similar unit but does not simmer as low a temp as the Primus does. It get hot enough for high temperature searing as well. I use it with a ten pound propane tank with an accessory hose. it comes with a hose to use the one pound canisters. I also use the propane tank for my small grill.

The I looked at the Camp Chef stoves but be aware they are large and heavy compared to the Primus and Coleman. I have not used these but wonder how well they will simmer. It looks like they have a very large burner, similar to a turkey fryer.

You can get a great price on these at SierraTradingPost.com

Thanks again I will look for one.
Tim
Oops I opened it up and read that will work on a 20 Gal tank. The MH has a bigger tank than 20 gals. I will look around too see if one is made for larger tanks. Thanks though.
Tim

The burners on the Campchef stoves are large in size, but they are not high pressure like turkey fryers. So they can be set to a low simmer. In my experience, it's sometimes too low and gets blown out from wind (remember, you are outside with these).

They are large, and heavier compared to some others. That has it's ups and downs, I guess. I have a buddy who owns a table top version, but I don't know if they still make that one or not? It's nice too, but then you need a table as well...
