ADVENTURE TRAVEL ENTHUSIASTS DEDICATED TO OVERLAND EXPLORATION
I saw a post recently about a break down cooker that had a cook surface that looked like it was made from a farm disc. It used a small single propane camp stove that hangs under it. Anyone know what I'm talking about and what they are called?
The Scottle does look pretty cool, but I'll throw in another plus for the Volcano grill– it doubles as a pretty sweet little portable fire pit that doesn't get hot on the bottom.
I want to build one from a new 16 inch disc blade, but no time before rally. moving into new custom home.
I've got a Tembo Tusk Skottle ( like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wF2KjvOmJYw) that I bring on most of my adventures. Bought a propane adapter hose and travel bag from the vendors at the last Overland Rally so I can use it with the standard large propane tanks at home. Works fantastic.
Hey Mark, I’ve been using this for the past year for a portable stove (I have a pull out stove in my JKU). It’s pretty cool. You can use wood, charcoal, or propane. Super easy to tote around and cooks great!
Aaron, I too dont like the throw away canisters. Several years ago I made up an adapter to refill them from a POL fitting on the big tanks. The small ones tend to leak after they are filled so stopped using it. May buy a one gallon refillable instead. As of now , regrettably, I still use throwaways. GRRRR
Not personally but I have friends that swear by them. You can take the wok off and just use it as a stove too. The 1lb propane bottles are a big turn off for me though that can be resolved.
OK, my bad. Found online. They are called Scottle cookers. I think they would be great for heating foil hobo meals when you cant have a open fire.
Has anyone used this type of cooker and whats your opinion of them?
