I have to warn you not to Bro. It used to be ok, but now it goes against the GSS.

Those keg cans were the best. Ultra light, and the banding added a lot of strength. It wasn't difficult to collect those after Super Bowl or World Series, but they stopped making them when the O-conomy became worse.

Wow, cool Stove Bill! I ended up buying the camp chef everest. It has 20kbtu's per burner, and I can power it from either a 1lb or 20 lb cylinder. I forgot to mention I already have a blackstone griddle that doubles as a fish cooker/big pot cooker for the big jobs. Thanks for all the tips guys!

Stove came in, and I test fired it up. I think I'm gonna be very happy. It definitely has some btu's. The only thing I didn't like about it was that it was imported... but Coleman is imported as well now.

As I recall, there are accessories to turn the Camp Chef into a BBQ grill. might be worth looking in to.

Yeah, I've seen those, and I have one for my big griddle. It works well, but it's a pain to clean. This Camp Chef is going to be my more portable version, for when it's just me sans family.

BTW I went camping/turkey hunting last weekend and tried it out.. The camp chef "everest" has the same or more power as a real home type gas stove. I had coffee in no time. I highly recommend.

The camp chef Everest is still going strong. Can't believe it's been almost 4 years now. Took it out to Ossabaw Island on a pig hunt this year and it's still going strong. Bushmeister Jr. missed his deer/hog opportunities, but he was fed well.

Bill, why not use a full size can as opposed to a shortened can???
