Looking on Amazon and none jump out at me. I like the grill/stove combo idea-I guess.


Anyone recommend one?

I recommend not getting a grill/stove, because of the cleanup required. If you want to grill something, do it over the fire.

Single burner butane stoves are compact, and easy, but don't work the best if it's really cold out. Most come with a nice carry case, and theyre ~$30

Dual burner propane is the classic. Get the "suitcase" style, that the lid folds up to become a wind screen.

IDK about the grill/stove combos. I'm with Brian on the assessment that you should just grill over the fire and use a stove as a stove.

If you're looking for small and efficient, I'm a big fan of the JetBoil. It isn't cheap, but it sure gets the job done with a minimal amount of effort and it take little effort to whip one out and have a hot lunch on the trail.

I have one of these: http://www.basspro.com/Jetboil-Zip-Cooking-System/product/10230002/?cmCat=CROSSSELL_PRODUCT

with this so that I can just use a regular skillet/pot with it...

For cold weather, I have a MSR Whisperlite International that runs on white gas, petrol, kerosene, or just about anything else you dump into it. I've had this stove for more than 20 years. They still sell the exact same stove today http://www.rei.com/product/708999/msr-whisperlite-shaker-jet-backpacking-stove ...and it's even the same price I paid for way back then. Cool It's great but you have to pump it to pressurize the fuel cylinder...

Thanks guys.

I was against the wall for ordering so I bought a Weber Q200 grill. I see you point with the items you mentioned though. I guess I can always return it.

I will check out your recommendations and decide on a path. I was trying to have something for this weekend in Robesonia.

couldnt post this from my phone but with a 2 burner grille you should get something like this



You can use it over a fire if you want and it just cleans with water when its hot, you can grill meats or cook eggs. it's perfect. my next camp kitchen item.

you want something like this?



http://www.amazon.com/Coleman-PerfectFlow-Insta-Start-Grill/dp/B000BPEE4M/ref=sr_1_16?ie=UTF8&qid=1350483963&sr=8-16&keywords=portable+propane+grill

I would just stick with a 2 burner colman and get a non stick pot and a cast iron grill/flat top like i posted earlier. you can do chicken and burgers on the cast iron on your stove or over a fire.

I ordered this:
http://www.weber.com/explore/grills/gas-portable/weber-q-220-2



I got a griddle that is custom fit to it for breakfast cooking as well.

I bought a single burner stove for coffee or cooking in a pot. Still not sure I went in the right direction but I will review what you guys have grasciously posted.

Thanks.
