I carry two grills with my kit...as well as old trusty Coleman two burner
1. Slat grill - for steaks, chicken(cut up) or kabobs
2. Cobb grill - same but you can boil, smoke, fry, grill in it and do a whole chicken

I just received and email that my Biolite Base Camp Stove and the Kettle have shipped! It's taken two months!!! I don't know whats going on over there but I won't be ordering direct anymore...REI has had them on the shelf for a month.

Biolite takes forever to return email, and when they do offer no useful information. Don't even think about calling them! Another fine set of products...and absolutely terrible service.

They look like your typical startup CA shop - riding bikes to work with Birkenstocks - probably do not have customer service - just engineers and marketing right now.

I'm curious about that one. Post up some comments when you start using it. Is it stable?

I love my Snow Peak IGT box and wouldn't trade it for anything.

It comes with a little strap that secures everything together. It packs up nicely in a Pelican:



I use a Snow Peak charcoal starter to get things going but it's not necessary. It does, however, save you from carrying and using nasty lighter fluid that stinks up your food. Just pour your coals in and stuff some paper or twigs/grass underneath the starter and light it with a match or torch.




While it's burning, prep your food:



And when you're done, your coals are ready.



The results are amazing.

I have the Magma Newport stainless and like it a lot but its gas.

It's a very famous grill here too.

But they wouldn't last forever.
Depending on the cast iron, sometimes the griddle holding forkend brakes apart.

But all in all I like the idea behind: starter (by chimney) and grill in one!

EcoZoom Stove

I received two of these stoves from EcoZoom today to try out. While I wouldn't necessarily bring them on a hike they're actually smaller and lighter than they look so definitely a contender for car camping or "overlanding" as we call it. The stove is insulated with clay and/or ceramic (depending on model) so supposedly it'll burn very hot with low smoke and is very efficient which means less fuel. I'll report back once I've had a chance to get a little more familiar with it.

I am talking to EcoZoom about redesigning their product for the North American market. These were originally designed for Africa, to be used in villages with little or no resources. It was designed to minimize smoke, maximize heat using a long burn time. Supposedly just a couple of twigs will burn for quite a while. If we do proceed with a redesign I will most likely carry the new version in my store. Potentially this could also be an excellent opportunity for all of you to provide feedback and influence a product that will eventually be available for sale.

I really like the simplicity of that design. Packs down nice and small, too. I'm not a fan of packing charcoal and lighter fluid on the trail, though. And a lid would be nice.

solaire portable grill

Got one of these portable solaire grills for xmas. I've only used it once, but it works really well given that its infrared, so its great for searing. and fairly lightweight and easy to clean. It takes up too much space for extended trips, but for short trips with the family its perfect

I like it. I've omly used it with wood and charcoal. I used one in Alaska, and really appreciated it as a way to cook anyplace with no fuel but what could be gathered on site. And I use mine now both camping and just on the back porch when I don't feel like using the Traeger. (There's still just something about a burger over coals....)

It carries well, and is just big enough. I don't like how dirty it gets, but that would probably be the he same for any grill unless you are super careful. I clean it out by simply dumping it upside down into a fire pit. That said, it can also serve as a great little fire pit in times when the ground will not serve.
