  • Frequently asked questions about camping stoves & grills

    It’s fun to rough it when camping, but having a dedicated spot to cook the food you’ll eat is a must. For your next camping trip, one of the most important pieces of camping equipment you can bring along are camping stoves & grills.

    What are the best camping stoves & grills?

    A camping stove is a portable stove you can take with you when you’re camping. Small and lightweight, camping stoves & grills are the best way to enjoy a burger, hot dog, or grilled vegetables after a day in the great outdoors.

    There are different kinds of camping stoves & grills including one, two, or three burner gas camping stoves & grills. You can also find wood stoves or pellet stoves that you can use with firewood or wood pellets.

    What fuel do camping stoves & grills use?

    Gas-based camping stoves & grills use either propane or butane. You can bring along a small bottle of propane or butane or hook your camping stove up to a larger propane bottle. If you choose butane for your fuel you may want an infrared butane camping stove for the most uniform heat distribution while cooking.

    How many burners should your camping stove have?

    Camping stoves & grills can have a single burner or up to three burners. When choosing your camping stove, you’ll also want to choose the correct BTU. BTU, or British Thermal Units, is an indicator of how hot your grill can get. A higher BTU means your grill will be ready to cook or sear everything from steak to hamburgers and chicken.

    Should you choose a propane vs butane camp stove?

    Deciding between propane and butane camping stoves & grills is easy. Propane is a good choice and it’s easy to find or refill a propane container. Propane is also a popular option if you’re cooking in cold weather or at high altitudes, and propane fuel best suits one or more burner camping stove.

    Butane is more lightweight than propane, and you can find butane stove fuel canisters that are easy to carry in your backpack. You’ll want to keep in mind that butane is not the best option if you’re camping in really cold weather as it unusable when the weather is colder than -0.4 Celsius or 32 degrees Fahrenheit.

    How do I choose the best camping stove for me?

    Out of all the types of camping stoves & grills, how do you choose the best option for you? You can narrow down your choices beginning with size, so if you’re camping with a large group you’ll want a two or three burner camping stove to save time making large meals. If you’re a backpacker or solo adventurer, you’ll want a one burner small camping stove to save space in your bag.
