Rely on the rugged Explorer to provide you with the cooking power you need. Two 30,000 BTU burners cook perfectly for camping, hunting, scouting, and just about any of your outdoor cooking needs. Cast aluminum burners resist rust and reduce weight while the burner drums focus heat upwards to give you more power. A three-sided windscreen will help protect your flame and radiate heat back to cook your food better. Its rugged construction is built to last. Legs adjust to accommodate uneven ground and remove for mobility and storage. Great for emergency preparedness and preferred by family campers, hunters and scout groups. One of the great uses for this stove is Emergency Preparedness. You can call it anything from Disaster, Emergency or Survival Preparedness; but either way it's something that's on a lot of people's minds these days. We feel it's very important that all households have at least a 72 hour kit and some food storage. More than likely with a disaster you'll not be able to use your home stove or range, so the perfect fit for that is this stove. A way to cook your food or boil your water should be on any emergency preparedness check list. This stove will boil water fast, making it safe to drink, then cook you a great meal. One 20 lb tank (not included) can get you 15 hours of cooking time. Hopefully, you would not have to use this stove for anything more than patio and camping, but if disaster strikes, you'll be ready.

Good quality. Could use a few minor improvements.

We purchased this for food canning, and for backup during our typical winter power outages. And I think it would be great for cooking up those pungent foods when you don’t want to stink up the house!
*6 Year Update* Fantastic Product! Survived the Oregon Coast with flying Colors!

Great camping stove

Great camping stove. Easy to pack in the bag for it and not heavy. I love the burner controls. The only improvement would be self-lighting burners but we bought a piezo igniter with a long arm and set the burner on low to light.
Great stove for the outdoors

I could kick myself every time I think about passing on the burner option on my Weber grill. After beating myself up for a year I finally decided to order this for my outdoor kitchen and very happy with the purchase. Its a little utilitarian in design and build, but that is OK for what it is. Only fault I have to it is the burners are “go big or go home”. Don’t plan on cooking with a 6″ skillet on this thing, it is designed to hold big pots and pans and only big ones. One big one and one small one would have been better for me, but I guess most folks that do outdoor cooking are fixing large meals for several. I fixed 2 big pots of spaghetti over the weekend (enough to feed an army) and this thing had the water boiling just about faster than I could get a few grinds of salt and a bit of olive oil in there.
Perfect for car camping, tailgating, or just grilling outside.

I’ve really enjoyed using this product. The price for the stove is not all inclusive for maximum enjoyment. In addition to the stove, you’ll also need to purchase a propane tank. I’d also recommend the cast-iron griddle/grill plates designed to fit on the stove. You probably only need one, but if you want two they’ll cost you about $20 a piece.
Love it! but needed leg extensions!

Best cooking appliance I ever bought! I live on farm and trying to find an indoor propane range was impossible and I hate cooking on a electric cooktop, so I bought the camp chef with the professional griddle. It is built very well and puts out a lot of heat! I got the griddle to 550 degrees in under 10 minutes. The only issue is, it is to short! I did not want to buy expensive leg extensions, so I made my own with 3/4 inch PVC and caps. The PVC was $1.29 for 10 feet, 4 pvc caps at 30 cents each and PVC glue for $2. I cut eat piece at 27 inches and left 7 inches out the end for a total height of 36 inches. There was already 2 holes in each leg, so I just used 1/2 inch sheet meal screws. It is pretty sturdy with the leg extensions!
useful stove with plenty of heat at 30,000BTU

We returned a defective EX170 with dual 60,000 and 30,000 BTU burners and got an EX60 with dual 30,000 BTU burners. This EX60 model comes with a round metal wind-shield attached to the bottom of each 30,000 BTU burner. Hence, the EX60 provides better wind protection than the EX170, which curiously didn’t have any round metal windscreen at the bottom of the burners at all. Further, with the EX60, gas control knobs are marked with hi/med/low/off positions. In order to turn on the gas, the knobs have to be pushed in then turned. The EX170 curiously had no such safety measure and markings. With the EX60, two burners can burn at the same time without any problem. With the EX170, we couldn’t get the 60,000 BTU to burn on medium or high at all, and the 30,000 BTU burner was therefore provided more heat than the 60,000 BTU burner on the EX170. In summary, the EX60 is WAY better than the EX170.
Solid construction, good performance, some design considerations..

I was shopping for a stove to take with me camping in the mountains but also double as an outdoor stove for the patio for my condo. I think I’ve found it.

I sold my Camp Chef Expedition 2 just to purchase the Explorer 2 at Big 5 for a sale price of $72. I feel that the Expedition is just for house use but the Explorer 2 looks right for camping. My family camps a lot and we love the Explorer’s bare bone design. I also purchased the SG60 Griddle here at Amazon for $74.99 but I will not be taking it to the camp because of its very heavy weight.
