As many of you already know my family loves to to go RV’ing. We ecpecially love it when the weather allows for cooking outside. While my favorite cooking method remains to be by charcoal, I have struggled to find a camp stove that would fit my boiling and grilling needs. There is nothing like the smell of bacon and eggs on a seasoned griddle in the morning. Or the smell and sizzle of sausage, peppers and onions wafting throught the air on your camping loop encourage your fellow campers to make new friends. How about my ever famous Low Country Boil, always a camp favorite on a dready day with the thick odor of garlic, keilbasa, crab and bay seasoning misting among the damp dew of a chilly evening. Well my friends I have finally found the perfect Camp Stove. The Camp Chef Expedition 3X Click here to buy one
So let me just tell you how awesome this stove is. First off, it is very well made. It is completely portable and folds up like a suitcase with removable legs and wind screen. The griddle is heavy cast iron and comes pre- seasoned. All you need is a 30# propane tank (no more of those expensive little green bottles on the little red Coleman). Let me tell you this thing has POWER. On high it sounds like an afterburner on a F-14 fighter jet. You can boil 30 quarts of water in under 10 minutes (insert Tim Allen grunting sound for chipandco.). Below are some of our test photos and my Low Country Boil recipe. Please enjoy..
And here’s the Low Country Boil Recipe:
4 pounds small red bliss potatoes, 1 pound of boiler onions, 1 pound of baby carrots, 2 bulbs of garlic,
3 pounds kielbasa or hot smoked link sausage, cut into 1½-inch pieces, 8 ears of corn, halved,
