Choosing the Right Stove For Your Outdoor Kitchen

When it comes to adding a propane camp stove to your outdoor kitchen, there's no shortage of options. In fact, you might be feeling a bit overwhelmed with the number of different sizes, weights, BTU outputs, and features. Do you want the compact stove with two 20,000 BTU burners, or the powerful three-burner with folding legs?

Fortunately, you can narrow down your choices by asking yourself a few questions: How many people are you cooking for? Where are you going to use your stove? Finally, how much cooking power do you need?

Group Size

First, let’s talk about how many hungry mouths you plan to feed on a regular basis. This is the biggest factor in determining the size of your stove.

PeopleSize

1-4 People

If you only need to cook for yourself or a few others, you should browse our selection of compact stoves. Camp Chef’s Mountain Series stoves are perfect for small group cooking. You can enjoy a warm meal in the outdoors without all the fuss of packing lots of gear. Our favorites in this category are the Everest and the Ranger.

4-7 People

Most of us probably fall in this category. You want the freedom to cook for the whole family wherever you go, but you don’t need the biggest stove on the market. One of the many two-burner stoves we offer will handle the job nicely. With two full burners, you have enough space to customize your cooking experience with two different stove accessories or one large accessory.

7+ People

For big tailgating parties, family events, scouting trips, or neighborhood barbecues, you need all the cooking space you can get. We recommend a three-burner stove like the Pro 90X (especially if you want a mobile cook station), a four-burner stove like the Somerset IV, or a grill like the Flat Top Grill for the back patio. The Pro 90X features side shelves for a little extra prep space with all your food, while the Somerset IV gives you shelves and even more cooking space with four full burners. And for maximum cooking space, the Flat Top Grill 900 h houses our largest cooking capacity.

Location

You should also consider where you want to use your stove most frequently. Is it going to stay out on your back patio most of the year? Or are you wanting to pack up and go every weekend?

locationa

On the Trail

Activities like backpacking, skiing, and hiking call for the most lightweight stoves. You can find that in the Stryker or the Jetboil. They are perfect for boiling water for soup, hot drinks, or dried meals. Other outdoor adventures like mountain biking, ATV riding, and snowmobiling may allow for a little more packing room. You will want to bring along a stove like the Teton or Camper's Combo to cook up lunch while you’re taking a break.

On the Patio

If you want your stove to be more or less a permanent patio fixture, you should research the Somerset IV and the Flat Top Grill. As mentioned above, both are excellent options when it comes to cooking for large groups. Their heavy-duty construction and large size make them perfect as the centerpiece of a backyard kitchen. You may also want to consider a a pellet grill for the back patio. With a large cook chambers, patented ash-cleanout, a side shelf, and a full line of accessories to doll it up, you'll be the neighborhood’s most popular barbecue master.

At the Campsite

Are you looking for a camp stove specifically? There are two sizes to consider: car camping stoves and compact camping stoves. For a casual family weekend at the campsite, you can easily pack a two-burner stove in and out of your car. With a carry bag, you can fit the removable legs and stove into one portable compartment. However, if you plan to camp in a more remote location where you won’t have immediate access to your vehicle, you can look back at the Camp Chef Mountain Series. These compact stoves are lightweight and easy to transport.

At the Tailgate Party

The two-burner and three-burner stoves we carry are awesome stoves for tailgating. Some of our top picks are the Pro 60X and Pro 90X. With built-in leg levelers, these stoves can cook in a slanted parking lot or uneven dirt without your food sliding around. They also have folding side shelves for extra prep space—always a must when you’re dealing with a lot of food. When you’re ready to pack it up for the game, all you have to do is fold down the shelves and legs, and you’re ready to go.

Power Level

Finally, you should consider what type of cooking challenge you'll be throwing at your stove most often. Are you hoping to cook a small camp breakfast with bacon, eggs, and pancakes? Or are you an avid fisher who loves big seafood boils? You need different levels of heat output depending on what you want to do.

BTU Output

10,000 BTU

For light cooking in temperate weather, a 10,000 BTU stove will be able to handle the job. BTUs, or British Thermal Units, are a measurement of energy output. You can find out more information about BTU measurement right here. Most of our compact stoves are 10,000 BTU, which is comparable to your average kitchen cooktop.

20,000-30,000 BTU

Many prefer a little more power; in that case, check out a two-burner or three-burner stove. The majority of stoves you’ll find on Outdoor Cooking land in the 20,000-30,000 BTU range, which is more than enough power to boil water with ease and hold up in inclement weather. On the other hand, you still have the capability to bring the heat down to a light simmer. For the widest range of cooking heat options and versatility, you want to look in this range.

60,000 BTU

High pressure stoves boast up to 60,000 BTU—more than triple what you’ll find with your kitchen stove. These are specialty stoves that are perfect for home brewing, deep frying, and water bath canning. They aren’t built for regular cook jobs; rather, their high power is designed to boil large amounts of liquid quickly. If you’re an enthusiastic home brewer or canner, you’ll want a powerful, single-burner stove.

Your Turn

Large group or small, backcountry or back patio, low pressure or high pressure, Outdoor Cooking has the perfect stove for your outdoor kitchen. It’s time to embrace the options and find the cooker that matches what you need. Take a look at our stove inventory today.

5 Summer Outdoor Cooking Hacks

Outdoor Cooking is our name and grilling is our game. Head outside this summer and cook confidently knowing these five outdoor cooking hacks. Whether it’s just two steps onto your back porch or 200 miles away from home we’ve got a few hacks to make your summer cooking a breeze.

 1. Pre-grease your grill with an onion

We all know the feeling of grabbing the tongs, gripping your food on the grill, and having to rip half the meat off the grill grates. If you aren’t a regular grill cleaner—you need to be. But, if you’re in a bind and need a quick non-stick grill trick—grab an onion, slice in half, and rub on your grill grates. Not only will your entire meal make it off the grill with no stragglers, but your food will have a lingering hint of added onion.

2. Pack a quick fire starter

FireStarter

It’s not camping unless you’ve got a roaring fire going. If you’re a mountain man (or woman) who loves to cook over open flames via roasting sticks, Dutch ovens, etc. then make sure you’ve packed a few quick-fire starters. All you need is an old egg carton, dryer lint, candle wax, and a match. Stuff your dryer lint in an old egg carton pocket (not too tight.) Melt your old candle wax by setting up a double broiler. Pour your melted wax over the dryer lint stuffed egg carton pockets and let the wax cool for about an hour. Finally cut them apart and store in a sealed, weatherproof bag and you’ll have flames roaring in no time. Try these 3 Hobo Meal Ideas over your next campfire.

3. Take advantage of seasonal fruit

GrilledFruit

Seasonal fruit is the new black. Not literally, but kind of! Take advantage of low-cost seasonal fruit like peaches, apricots, cherries, pineapple, and more by adding them to your summer recipes. Keep the house cool and bake your fruit pies, strudels, etc. on your outdoor grill. (Our line of cast iron and dutch ovens work great for this.) Baking not really your pace? Simply half a peach, cut out the pit, place them on the grill, sweep with cinnamon and sugar, and grill for a sweet treat all on their own.

4. Pack your cooler wisely

CoolerPacking

Whether your adventure takes you to the beach, the campsite, or on a fishing trip--cooler packing is essential. Don’t just carelessly throw your bottled drinks and whole fruits and veggies in without properly utilizing all your space. Once you’ve planned your meals we recommend chopping, slicing, mincing, etc. all your ingredients prior to the trip. Store in air-tight containers or Ziplock baggies to keep them fresh. Freeze plenty of water bottles and utilize them as ice packs throughout your cooler packing. This will ensure that your cooler contents stay chilled and don’t spoil. Read our entire blog on How to Pack a Cooler.

5. Ice cube for juicy burgers

I think we can all agree that there’s nothing more satisfying than a genuinely good burger. But what makes a grilled burger so dang tasty? Ice—you heard that right. Not frozen patties, but rather a single ice cube placed in the center of your burger patty. This will ensure that your burger stays moist and doesn't dry out during the grilling process. Not quite sold yet? That’s okay! Sneak and ice cube from your drink and try it at your next cookout. You won't go back.

A Backpacker's Checklist

First Time Backpacking?

Get the right gear. Buy new, borrow from a friend, rent—whatever it may be. Gear is extremely important when backpacking. There are many brands out there, but popular brands don't always correlate to practical backpacking gear. Keep in mind that weather changes quickly in the mountains. You need to be prepared. Make sure to pick up some long underwear, removable hiking layers, cold weather insulation, and an outer shell that is rain-proof. Don't forget proper footwear.

Choose somewhere easy. Test yourself. When you first drove a car or rode a bike you didn't dive right into a strenuous trip. Your first time backpacking should be the same. Start with a day hike then graduate to an overnight trip when you feel ready. It's always best practice travel in pairs before attempting a solo mission. And always, always, always tell someone where you are going and when you are expected to return.

HikeWFriends

Plan your food. You cannot expect to go on a backpacking trip with only a plastic water bottle and a granola bar. Prepare your food beforehand or at least plan and pack prior to your trip. We carry a variety of Mountain House packages meals that pair perfectly with the Camp Chef Stryker Stove series.

Packing Light

Packing light is the name of the game. You will often hear other backpackers referring to common camping items in ounces. Everything is meticulously planned. The way you pack can make or break your backpacking experience. It is best practice to only packing about 20% of your body weight. If you weigh 200 lbs., plan on packing only about 40 lbs. of gear. Much of the weight will be attributed to water.

But, Only The Necessities

Yes, while packing light is essential. You need to first focus on the necessities. For overnight adventures, at a minimum you need: a backpack, tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, single burner stove, water treatment, a first aid kit, fire, cooking supplies (including food and water.)

For a day hike, you can leave the tent and sleeping pad. However, we recommend packing some sort of emergency shelter should something not go as planned. Sunscreen is also very important.

Checklist

Follow along on this checklist for a better look in our backpacker's backpacks. Of course, even after your first trip you'll come to know your personal necessities. This will allow you to better pack for your next trip.
