    Camp Chef Stove/Griddle

    I alluded to this earlier, but I recently got a new toy to play with. It is a Camp Chef Denali 3-burner stove. I picked it up on Craigslist for $125, a steal in my opinion, it was listed at $175, $300 new. It came with a griddle to cover one burner, and my beautiful wife got me a griddle to cover the other 2 for our anniversary last month, which just arrived yesterday so I haven't gotten to use it yet.

    Each burner puts out 30,000 btu, which is super powerful - this thing roars at full blast. Having the removable griddles makes it real convenient for doing things like deep frying outside where it doesn't stink up the house, and very convenient for camping when you often have a pot of water on to boil. It is bigger than I expected, but my wife is all for it, so what more could I ask for?

    Pics, cuz this happened
    First use, picked it up the night before going camping so broke it in with just a couple hot dogs.

    Grilled cheese made for a nice quick dinner the other day. I added a fried egg to each because why not.

    Just yesterday, I made breakfast (hash and eggs) while frying some shallots for future stir fry.

    Like I said, those burners are powerful. I'll have to try the shallots again, but at least it looks like it only takes around 8 minutes to fry, not the 30 that Kenji says...

        The legs come off and you can get a carry bag for it. I wouldn't say it is compact, but it is portable

      I have one of those in my garage. Got it back when my son was a boy scout; we used it up at the Skymont boy scout camp one year. That was 13 or 14 years ago. Guess I need to haul it out, check the fittings, and get cooking on it.

          That was jus a Great review/write up, with HD pics of some Fantastic Food! !!!!!
          Very Nicely Done!!!
          Many thanks fer takin th time, much appreciated, brother!

          Did ya (I woulda) try some of yer shallots, fer taste? If they didn't taste 'burnt', I'd most likely air dry / dehydrate, or jus mince up fine, as is; use in some rubs, or in other dishes... with that level of carmelization, I'm bettin ya got some flavour, there!

            Thank you Mr. Bones it was your Blackstone post that got me to start talking to my wife about getting something like this.

            I didn't try the shallots, they stunk pretty bad. It didn't cross my mind that there would be some flavor in there that would be useful. The smell being outside, my wife didn't mind the screw up. Inside, I would've been outlawed from cooking for a while...

              Digital Thermometers Are Your Most Valuable Tool And Here's A Great Buy!

              maverick PT55 thermometer

              A good digital thermometer keeps you from serving dry overcooked food or dangerously undercooked food. They are much faster and much more accurate than dial thermometers. YOU NEED ONE!

              Click here for more info on the Maverick PT-55 Waterproof Instant-Read Thermometer Review shown above. It may be the best value in a thermometer out there


              If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

              slow n sear

              The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

Broil King's proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills.

              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

              the good one grill

              The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

              Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

              Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

              Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

              The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

              The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

              The Swiss Army Knife Of Thermometers

              Placeholder

              The smart folks at ThermoWorks have finally done it: The Swiss Army Knife of thermometers, two in one. Start with the industry standard food thermometer, the Thermapen MK4, (Platinum Medal winner) truly instant (2 to 3 seconds) precise (+ or – 0.7°F). Then they built in an infrared thermometer ideal for measuring the temps of pizza stones, griddles, and frying pans (also great for finding leaks around doors and windows in your house).

              The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

              NK-22-Ck Grill

              Their NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
