Kel and I have a champion - but thats only cause thats what Kel had when we met.

Personally I'd get a dual fuel unit like on of the Coleman units

I wouldnt waste money on more than 2 burners - ours has 3 and we can only use 2 at a time max any way because they are so close together

I use one of these. They cook fantastic steaks. My full sized barbecue at home gets zero use now because of this little beauty.

We have a two burner and if you have a large pot you can only use one burner, same thing burners too close. So you might be better off with a 3 burner.

My folks have a dual fuel stove, about 25 years old. its a bit bulky, but the fuel tank and stand can fit inside the stove when packed up, so its not that bad.

Hi MrsH
There are a few things to determine before the choice is made.
do you want a gas stove (High or Low Pressure?)
Dual Fuel, Solid Fuel - Fire starter type; self contained gas type, or Kero / Shellite etc. or something else?

We have a few ways of cooking when we go camping
ie standalone 2 burner Low pressure Portable Gasmate Rio Grande BBQ

A High Pressure Primus in the CT Kitchen Box
http://www.sherryscamping.com.au/prod379.htm

BBQ plates for cooking on Wood fires

& a Camp Oven for cooking with either coals from a wood fire or with heat beads (solid fuel)

All have their uses at various times ie High Pressure gas to boil the first cuppa in the morning and the others to use over the daily meals ending with the glow of the fire...

I am after a Lido for the CT to replace the primus when the $$ become available.

Hope this helps

Thanks for the feedback all, it's food for thought.

We have a Gasmate 2 burner/grill already, but it's a bit temperamental so we're looking to upgrade.

Cruzin, I've heard lots of good things about the Lido so we'll start saving :)
