    Another vote for white gas coleman, and best 1 burner by far MSR Whisperlite international, it will burn in any weather/altitude
    there's a reason they call it fishing, not catching

    Iíve got the Coleman Triton 2-burner (also comes in a 3 burner). Its like an updated version of the classic green Coleman. Regulates very well; that was the only issue I ever had with my old green classic Coleman.

    Coleman (white gas) stove: 7,000 BTU per burner
    Camp Chef Everest: 20,000 BTU per burner

    If you want to boil water (especially large quantities such as cooking corn or worse yet cooking lobster) then the Coleman isn't the choice. If boiling water isn't a need either will work. I have both. As others mention, I will give the Coleman to one of my kids. However, the Camp Chef is my favored choice.

    Ggrifi, some more info would get you more meaningful opinions. I recommended the Classic Coleman. It's likely I'll be cooking for only a few days. I'm quite content to live on nothing much more then eggs, bacon, taters, fish, beans, burger, and maybe some sweet corn. I could eat that every day for a week with no complaints. If you are feeding six, and enjoy cooking four course meals, then your stove needs are going to vary. Whether you are camping out of the trunk of a Toyota Corolla or an F250 Supercab is relevant too.
    @ia_trouter You're right, I should have put more info in at first. Wife and I are going to start camping again and the only item we didn't have already is a camp stove. I have a Weber Q100 that we have used before but if it's windy you're screwed. Our needs don't go any further than yours and space isn't an issue either. I'm leaning towards propane right now but I like the idea of saving some bucks with Coleman.

    The nice thing about the white gas models, you can buy a regulator for propane. I donít think they make the regulators/tanks to go from propane to white gas.

    I actually collect vintage Coleman stoves. I have no idea why
    Replacement parts are cheap and hi-test gas works just as well as the canned stuff. It's just a little smelly.

    But most of the time I use this 35 year old propane.
    Can't stand buying the "disposable" propane canisters, so I refill my old ones.
    It's not a big deal at all.

    For backpacking I use this

    https://www.amazon.com/Coleman-Sport.../dp/B07BQYBDXY

    Never used it with anything but white gas. Haven't been backpacking in years either, but it sure came in handy a few years back when a freak Halloween snowstorm knocked the power out for two weeks. Tree stump in driveway with stove on it, cooking Dinty Moore beef stew.

    I have one of those old green Coleman two-burners somewhere too.

    Going outside the box for this one......
    I too have several Coleman stoves. White gas and propane. Also have the Weber Q for grilling. (Highly recommended)
    I have several MSR stoves for back country/climbing use. A Jet Boil as well....
    But my favorite stove for quick use is the 2lb white mini propane tank, with a single burner screwed directly into the tank.
    No regulator, just full power heat. I have a collapsible wind screen from an outfitter shop.
    If I'm cooking for a group, it's a good third burner. But I keep it by the camper door for a quick cup of coffee or one burner meal.
    This set up has performed for at least 15 years, because I had to have the tank re-certified this year..
    I can it set up one-handed, from my bed. It roars............I never leave home without.

    I set it up to take a quick connect hose, for a lantern or a grill/stove.

    If you donít mind a little weight the 17 inch black stone grill is awesome. My Walmart has them marked down to $50.
