i have the 2 burner explorer camp chef. as a grill, it is one of the best propane burners out there and i did go to cooking school (but never worked in a professional kitchen) and have put these 2 burners through the paces.
it can simmer extremely well. it's does beautifully at high heat too. works great with their cast iron bbq top box and with a wok ring, can stir fry just like the pro kitchen units. it is susceptible to being blow out by gusts of wind on the low setting.
i have both the regulated portable tank hose and the 10' unregulated quick connect hose. the quick connect hose can fit into the quick disconnect fitting in the storage bay. however, i would reccomend getting a much longer hose as you use up alot of the hose length just dropping down and out of the bay. a 20' hose would be nice.
i do notice on my unit with the on-demand propane water heater, that i can notice the burners fluttering and a few times have cut out when the water heater was running. i had 3/4 tank full of propane when i noticed this. i only ran this set up once. i will try it again to see if it is indeed the on-demand water heater starving the propane flow to the camp chef.
but i always carry a portable tank just in case i need to setup the kitchen a little further away from the coach and the hose won't reach.
if you have a portable propane tank, you won't ever regret buying the camp chef!
I have had no luck finding a quick connect that will hook up to my XLR HFS 27 toy hauler any suggestions.
