I hope you don't mind but I'm likely to ask for opinions on a number of things that I'm buying in the near future. I appreciate the voices of experience!
As I've mentioned in other posts, my wife and I are changing from campervan to tenting. So we'll be progressively buying a tent, trailer, gas fridge/freezer, bed and stove.
Today, it's the stove. Next Thursday, we're off to Port Macquarie to spend a major portion of the day looking at camping equipment at the numerous camping stores they have there. We'll have a break at Hog's Breath then back into it!
Now, until the van sold and was towed away yesterday, we had a two burner in the van, a single-burner outside and a BBQ. The BBQ and, of course, the two burner have gone. We're thinking we can get away with just one appliance: A three burner LPG stove (maybe Companion with an extra large central burner) with a cast plate to convert it to a BBQ. I know it's a come-down from a full-on BBQ plate, but has anyone found these to be effective for a few sausages and onion, or a steak? I'm thinking along the lines of it being compact but still being able to cook a meal, BBQ a meal and boil a kettle.
