    The Coleman propane stove we have just isn't doing the job anymore. It is a good stove, but not a great one. I've been looking at the Camp Chef Everest and it has its good points, like 20,000 btu per burner, but I'm not sure if that is so good. It kind of tells me that it may not have good low flame control.

    The other stove I'm looking at is the Eureka Ignite Plus. The burner output isn't the same, 10,000 btu per burner, but that may mean better flame control too.

    What do ya'll use?

    Coleman white gas. I have a single burner 400, a two burner Sears branded stove and a 3 burner for when the whole family is out.

    Traveling light I've used just a cheap propane single burner with little tanks the size of spray paint. Folds into a small case, very compact, easy to light and controllable. For multi-day camping it's a 20 lb propane tank with 3 way upright manifold. Lantern on top, then a folding table with 2 or 3 burner full size propane stove. The 3 burner model has a char-grill ceramic screen that can do a job on burgers, steak or pork chops. Can leave the lantern running all night for several nights and still have gas to cook with.

    Coming from a backpacking, canoe-tripping background, I use a MSR WhisperLite Stove that runs on white gas.

    Messy startup but heats very, very quickly.
