I debated on getting one of those propane burners and pots for crawfish boils and what not for home use.... but it feels like just something else to pack and take camping. Opinions?
I have do have the big pot for seafood boils but only bring it when I am planning a boil. You will want and certainly remember to bring it after paying for the shrimp and lobster tails…
For my normal travels, I carry a short propane burner and a 20lb bottle in a milk crate. They both travel well in the bed of the truck. Under one of the TT booth seats, I keep the shallow fryer pan and pan strainer.
The propane burner, pan and strainer may or not be used on a trip but are there if the desire arises.
I always use the 20lb bottle and a two piece gas tree with my Coleman stove and lantern. Those little bottles are damn pricey.
