Petrol Stove with Grill?

Hi there,

Have been recommended taking a coleman dual fuel stove on our trip. But our current cooker has a nice grill on it, perfect for making garlic bread!

Does anyone know where you can get a dual fuel stove with grill? Or is that just impossible?

Thanks as usual

Cheers

Hi Ollie,
I hope i'm wrong, but i suspect it may not be possible.
I used a small MSR on a trip to Mali and it was perfect, but i ended up switching to a double burner and grill gas cooker on the last trip and that had its plus points too.......i want the best of both worlds!!!
I'll keep an eye on this thread, hopefully someone can tell me i'm wrong

do you mean like a wire grill on your kitchen oven or a grill like a griddle pan with the lines in?
theres no way you should eat anything cooked directly over a naked petrol flame, even if you could stand the taste, but you could use a cast iron griddle pan on any stove i think.
i make toast and garlic bread by toasting it in a completely dry frying pan, but thats using bought bread not baking from scratch obviously.

i can reccomend the coleman sportster 533 and its smaller brother, they can be a lot more robust than lighter mountaineering stoves, and do actually run well on unleaded. some manufacturers claim their stoves do but need cleaning out all the time.

and you carry a fuel supply for it on the bike all the time, but these days i prefer the cleanliness of a isopropane canister for short trips

You can use a fancy griddle pan, but a 1/8" or thicker piece of steel will do. Just lay the bread (or my favourite, sardines) on the bare metal. after it has been used below fire temperatures a few times it will get non stick. Maker sure juices ( oil or butter) can drip clear of you burner. Flat steel packs easily.

You can make a wire grill to go over the stove but as DAVSATO posted its not the best tasting, wood fire is what you want here I have done both. And as far a griddle I use a S.S. pan that works as a top for my pot.

But for what you are doing a sheet of aluminum foil do gust fine.

Diesel

So - I will be in a 4x4 not on a bike, and will be carrying diesel rather than petrol. no problems there though, as I can always carry a can of petrol.

Am looking to make things that need a heat source from above, like garlic bread or cheese on toast. I think maybe the tin foil idea is there winner.

I can see that eating something cooked with a direct petrol flame might not be the best.

Thanks for all the answers .....

ah well, if youre on 4 wheels and size isnt such a big deal, have a look at caravan cookers either gas or electric. you can get a fantastic meal for six out of my mate's campervan's little oven combo. its got an oven/grill underneath two hot plates. its about the same size as an old fashioned baby belling but runs 12v. youd think it takes a lot of juice but doesnt seem to, and your 4WD should have a beefy battery anyway. when cool it doubles as a storage cupboard for all the cooking gear

You could aways do what we do.
Wrap your bread up with your favorite topping and some (cooking) oil in aluminium foil and wire it to your cylinder head or manifold.

Drive/ride for 300kms and when you stop you will have perfectly cooked toasties!

NEVER cook directly over a petrol flame.

Hey Nat - thanks for that. Just popped to your website for the first time. Love it. Especially the Jerry can side lockers. Crazy!

Anyhoe - we've been contemplating manifold cooking for a while. Below the links we've gather so far. Have you cooked anything on the postie?

Hey Ollie.
Wow I didnt know it had a following.
My Dad used to be an interstate truck driver and passed the idea on to me.
He used to bake bread (damper)and pizzas in his old MAN engine bay.

You will have room enough for a fabbed up oven in your overlander for sure. Not sure of the layout in there but having the heat source coming from 2sides obviously will give you a more even "cook"

We have done a few sausage and cheese sandwiches on the postie so far.
Have been too hungry to think about taking pictures though, must remember next time.

Cheers
