camp cookstove

6 posts in this topic

I tried posting this in the camping section and haven't gotten any help yet so I thought I'd try here.

I bought a new Camp Chef 3-burner cookstove this spring. The grille box works well, but the griddle is just a flat cast iron piece that spans 2 burners. The griddle does not distribute heat well at all and the spots over the burners get too hot. Anyone have any ideas on modifying this setup to get a more even distribution of heat?

I'm not familiar with that model but you could try forming some type of metal shield with holes in it and place it between the burners and the griddle, similar to what gas grills have.

Is the griddle made out of very thin metal?

I think that thedeadsea is right. I'm not familiar with your model of stove, but my guess is that the problem is a function of the metal used in the griddle more than anything else. A good cast iron piece will distribute heat evenly. Try experimenting or search the web to see if others have had the same issue.

You might find more useful information at a camping-specific forum or HSOforum.

Maybe try turning down the heat. Cast iron heats very evenly if heated slowly, if you pour the coals to it even a cast fry pan will have a hot spot.
