U-BUTE Twin burner butane BBQ

Bought one of these from the U-Bute website earlier in the week for $99 and the day after I bought it they had them on Catch of the Day for $49.95!!! :--?

Will give it a whirl when it shows up and let you all know what it's like.

We already have two butane stoves that we use instead of gas bbq or stove and love them so this was just the next step....

A girlfriend of mine also just bought one direct from UBute. She'll be peeved if she finds out how much they were on CotD.

Just a reminder if you have 2 of the standard stoves it is hazardous to put them together with a BBQ plate on them.

Read your instructions and it should advise you of the potential for disaster.

Got it the other day and had our first BBQ on it that night and it worked like a dream.

Bigger than what I had thought. The carry case is really sturdy too.

Couldn't believe the other day when I read on another forum I am also a member of that some dingaling suggested to put two butane stoves together with a Baby Q hotplate & provided a pic of his!!!! ::() .......silly boy telling people to do that, very dangerous

No sorry Gypsy I didn't. Thought someone else might have though but alas they haven't.

Will try to get some time to get on and say why.

Pardon my ignorance, but why is it dangerous to put two together with a hotplate over them? I just purchased a U-Bute from Scoopon for $65 delivered, which is about the same price as COTD as I think you had to pay extra for postage?

Because the double ones have the gas on each end, people put them together with the butane can beside the cooker and they explode.

Oh yes, now I understand, but then if you turn one of them around so that they're facing the opposite way, with the butane cylinders on the outside then there would be no difference?
We're yet to cook on our new U-Bute burner, but can't wait to give it good workout! Mmmmm, can smell the bacon, eggs & mushrooms now!!!

!



There is definitely a difference Ross....read the instructions and they state that 2 are not to be used together and you are advised not to put anything (pot or pan) larger than 30 cm from memory on one stove....much less join 2 together to put a full length plate on them. The heat generated and retained under the plate makes it a volatile combination.

You'll find that the Ubute ones are probably larger and also designed in such a way that there is little or no retained heat.

Thanks for the replies. I wasn't trying to be smart, just trying to understand why, and now I can post my new found knowledge onto others. I will just continue to using my U-Bute.

That's ok Ross, I am sure you will be very happy with the performance of your Ubute stove/BBQ as well. I have a friend who bought one also and we are going to try it out when we camp for a few days next month.
