I have http://www.amazon.com/Camco-57305-Ol...rds=camco+5500 It plugs into the low pressure propane port of my Eagle with no mods. I also bought the 10' extension hose. I moved the low pressure propane port so it is on the patio side of the TT between the slide and the door in front of the tandems. This is way more convenient than the rear. I set my grill up on the patio just across from the TT door so I can get to it easily and not leave the patio. I use a cast iron pan to cook on it if I'm not grilling.

This past year we also make pork fried rice, fajitas, steak & cheese subs, plus burgers and dogs and all the other standard camp fare.
X2 KiltDog, You can't beat the 2 burner Camp Chef. No extra propane to carry and no electric needed if boondocking. The one pictured in my link, is 15 years old.

I realize this is an older post but hoping some members will see it and help out. I too am researching a new tabletop grill and 2 burner cooktop for our new camper. We didn't want to attach one to the side of this new camper. Our last two campers had a rail with a 2 burner cook top. We have camped only 1 weekend with our new camper and I am missing the outdoor cooking option (aside from the campfire).
For those with a camp chef- are they tabletop? I see in BigSky's picture, he has one on legs. If anyone has a great tabletop model they love, could you let me know what model? I am also thinking the Weber Q would be a great alternative to our adjust a grill on the campfire.
This is always such a generous group of knowledgeable folks. I love checking in on this forum. Thanks in advance for the info.
Happy camping!

We have a few stoves we've used over the years but the one I like the best is the Camp Chef Oven with two burner cooktop. I make biscuits, muffins, pizza, and whatever else you want to bake in it. The cooktop itself comes with a griddle that works well for bacon & eggs, pancakes, etc. Here's an example from Amazon, although I purchased ours at Costco a couple of years ago for $129 (on sale). Love it.

Amazon.com : Camp Chef Camping Outdoor Oven with 2 Burner Camping Stove : Portable Propane Oven : Kitchen & Dining


BTW, you can use it on a table top or what I do is place it on a small wire rack that my neighbor was throwing away in his trash. It fits perfectly, is lightweight, and it locks the feet in place so there's no sliding around.

I just picked up a 2 burner Camp Chef last weekend, but haven't had a chance to try it out. It does come with legs, but they're detachable which leaves much shorter legs (a couple of inches) - I'm hoping it will be safe to use on a table as well. I'll try it out on the first trip and see how warm it gets beneath the stove, but I have high hopes for it!

Is it the MVP model? I just saw it at Cabela's. It was a new model and had no reviews yet. Let me know how it goes.
Good Luck!!

We love our Camp Chef two burner stove. We have the grill, griddle and the wife got me the pizza oven for Christmas. Can't wait to use it this season!

Having in the past been happy with Weber products I purchased the baby Weber Q for camping. Loved it so much I also use it at home - while the full size Weber just watches.

Baby used 3-4 X week. Big fellow maybe once/month.

We have the three burner camp chef- heavy and bulky, but it's AWESOME. We do all of our cooking outside. I have a quick-connect hose on it so it runs off of the trailer propane, and a cover so we just set up the kitchen next to the back cargo door. Also have a griddle, and my wife got me the pizza oven for my birthday last week. Really excited to try it out!

It was a branded as Browning, but is the same as the 2 burning camp chef as far as I'm aware. This guy: Browning 2-Burner Camp Stove | Bass Pro Shops

It'll likely be another month till it's warm enough in these parts to try it out sadly.
