Best camping grill stove combo
Best camping stove grill combo for groups and large families
If you’re looking to cook up a feast for the whole family, or a group of your buddies, the Camp Chef Big Gas Grill is your man. It’s one of the largest camping grill stove combos available for camping use.
Its legs are removable, allowing you to pack it down flat for easier transportation. You can also purchase a separate carry case for the grill box to make life even easier.
The removable grill box takes up two of the three burners, allowing you to grill and use the stove at the same time. The grill box is huge and can fit tonnes of food on, while the left over burner has plenty of space to fit a decent sized frying pan or pot.
The versatility of the stove is also another major plus if you enjoy cooking proper food while camping. Camp Chef offer tonnes of add-ons/surfaces such as griddle pans and pizza ovens.
The unit itself is fairly heavy, but that’s a testament to its build quality. It’s super sturdy and durable.
The removable legs are adjustable, an important feature when using the grill to prevent grease build up, while the matchless ignition never fails and all burners light up instantly.
Best budget camping stove grill combo
The Pupzo portable camping grill with stove offers the best bang for your buck if you’re on a budget.
Its super simple retro design will get heads turning at your campground without making your pockets cry.
It features 2 independent burners – one for stove use and another for the grill box, allowing you to grill and cook at the same time. Its wind block panels are a nice addition for the price, and really do help during windy weather.
The layout and spacing makes cooking multiple things at the same time easy. There’s plenty of space between the grill box and stove burner, meaning you can fit a decent sized frying pan (roughly 12″ diameter pan) on the stove without it being too cramped.
The detachable legs allow for you to cook with the unit on a table or sturdy surface, as opposed to the legs. An added bonus when you are camping on uneven ground and getting the legs stable is an impossibility.
Other neat features include a lockable lid and carrying handle for easy transport, removable grill pan and grease tray for super easy clean up.
A small but powerful tabletop stove grill combo
The Stansport propane stove and grill combo features the same size grill and burner area as the Coleman camp stove, but includes matchless ignition where the Coleman requires lighting via a match or lighter.
One of the Stansport stoves’ strongpoints is its regulator. It’s better than most others at temperature control despite its cheap price. You wont struggle to get the right temperature when you turn the knobs, nor turn it off accidentally when you’re trying to achieve a low simmer.
The grill area itself measures 13″ x 10″ (enough for around 8 small burgers) and has a heat output of 8,000 BTU’s, while the stove burner is large enough to fit a 10″ pan or pot and has a heat output of 10,000. While the heat production is adequate, the grill burner could do with a little more power when cooking larger meals.
The windblock panels work a treat, and lighting and keeping the unit lit are never a problem, even in relatively strong winds.
One of the only things that lets this unit down is its versatility. Stansport don’t produce a griddle pan to replace the grill box, nor one to place on the spare stove burner. Basically, what you see with this unit is what you get and will always have.
Best small camping grill stove combo
The Coleman Camp Grill/Stove+ is one of the most popular small tabletop stoves in the industry.
While it doesn’t feature matchless ignition like most stoves these days, it does offer a higher heat output than most units its size.
The grill area measures 13″ x 10″ (enough for around 8 small burgers) and the stove surface can fit a 10″ pan no problem. The BTU’s are shared equally between the stove burner and grill burner, and both can cook up a decent amount of food quickly.
Its wind-shield panels also offer nice protection from wind, we were even able to use it successfully on a rather windy beach without hassle.
One of the Coleman’s let down points is its control knobs. If you’re new to camping stoves, it can be difficult to control the temperature due to the lack of regulator. If you have patience and perseverence, you will be able to get the hang of it with practice, but if not, the Stansport stove features easier to control knobs.
Another neat feature is the removable grease tray, something that is super important if you want to keep the stove unit in a nice condition.
Most portable camping grill stove combo
While the Coleman RoadTrip 285 doesn’t come supplied as a grill/stove combo, its portability and innovative design makes it a must mention.
The RoadTrip 285 is a part of the “SwapTop” series, which allows for you to swap out the grill grates for a griddle pan or stove ring.
The ability to swap out the tops makes the unit extremely versatile when it comes to your cooking options. The process of swapping them out is super quick and easy, so you can utilize the various add ons without a load of hassle.
The stove ring is spacious enough to fit a 12″ pan or pot on it comfortably.
It features matchless ignition, 3 independantly adjustable burners with varying degrees of power from 3,250 to 20,000 BTU’s when one burner is lit. The total BTU’s of the unit 20,000, enough to cook a tonne of food for the entire family.
The two sliding side tables are super convenient and offer tonnes of room from keeping utensils, sauces and anything else you need, handy!
Its portable design with rolling wheels allows for you to store the unit upright, perfect for storing in a cupboard at home when not in use.
