GEAR REVIEW - Camp Chef Everest Two Burner Camp Stove

As several fall camping trips last year were coming into view, I started going through our gear bins on what we needed and what we didn't.  The old green dual fuel two burner that we can been carrying on trips for almost twenty years had been giving us trouble and it was time to look at something reliable that wouldn't burst into flames from places in the stove that isn't supposed to have flames.  I was holding onto it for sentimental reasons but it was definitely time for an upgrade. 

It seemed that a many internet searches, along with quite a few online gear reviews, all pointed at the Camp Chef Everest Two Burner Camping Stove as reliable with a high output of heat and priced right at $100 depending where you buy it.  It seemed like a good deal with a solid reputation and worth the investment.

Along with the Camp Chef Everest Camp Stove, I purchased the Mountain Series Aluminum Griddle and through the fall and into winter we have cooked quite a few meals on this setup.  The stove has worked flawlessly and the griddle has been a great addition for making quick work of breakfast with pancakes, sausage patties or hash browns.  This stove has been an excellent performer and we've been more than impressed.

The Camp Chef Everest Camp Stove features:
  • Two 20,000 BTU Burners
  • Three-Sided Wind Barrier
  • Fully Adjustable Heat-Control Dials
  • Matchless Ignition
  • Stainless Steel Drip Tray
  • Convenient Carry Handle
  • Regulator Adapter for Propane Cylinder
  • Adapter Available to Use with Standard Bulk Tank

Visit the Camp Chef website for more information on the Everest Camp Stove and the many accessories available along with their long list of other Camp Chef Stove options small to large.  

I'm looking hard at the new Pro 60X Stove for group camping and the feeding program that our church youth group has started to serve those in need in the Columbia, South Carolina area.  This stove and full size griddle would come in handy.

I've read numerous reviews that claim the aluminum griddle does not fit securely on the Everest. Could you verify that it does indeed.

Unknown... No, it doesn't. I've used the aluminum griddle on top of the stove grates and then pulling the grates and using the griddle alone. Not a perfect fit and possibly a future consideration in a redesign.
