    I am looking for a decent stove for overlanding/ tailgating/ truck camping and I do not like or trust Amazon reviews or product descriptions. I currently have an old Coleman but am wondering if there are lighter or newer products out there now in a post Covid era world we all grill in now. Thank you in advance.

    If I get a winch on my 2WD, can I overland with the BASTRDs and SGU?!
    Neither inexpensive nor lightweight, I LOVE my Jetboil Genesis Base Camp system!

    https://jetboil.johnsonoutdoors.com/stoves-systems/genesis-basecamp-stove

    It is very well-made and packs with everything stacked together, so it sustains the hard hits of high-speed overlanding. It’s also got an amazing low-simmer setting— the only such camping stove I know about that does— so many others, if you try to simmer with low flame, will extinguish in any breeze or wind.

    If you’re patient— or lucky— you can score a great deal. I got some significant discount, 20% or 25%, for which it is totally worth it.

    I have this one as well. I've only used it twice but it did the job. You definitely want to get the optional carry bag for it.

    A lot of reviews mentioned it runs hot. This is true. Even on low it gets really hot. You can't leave food unattended. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one if I had to.

    I’m also running a Camp Chef, we have the Everest model. We used to have a few Coleman’s but we were never able to actually change the flame type on those. It was either off or full flame. The Camp Chef is the first camp stove we’ve used that the knobs actually impact the level of flame and heat produced. We’ve loved it so far.

    Breakfast after opening day for turkey season. Nothing fancy but made hot coffee, bacon, and eggs.

    I have one of these too. Great for 1-2 people. And small and inexpensive.

    Not sure what your feature requirements are.

    I got the MSR Dragonfly about 20 years ago when we thought we were going to start hiking and camping more. That never materialized, but I use it once or twice a year still when we go play in the snow and need a hot meal cooked on the tailgate. I mostly boil water for mountain houses, but have cooked other things and never had any issues. My only complaint is it's loud, but works great if you want something small, uses a refillable container and can burn most fuels.

    I had a Coleman fold-n-go for a number of years that worked pretty well too. It's typical Coleman quality (a bit rickety), but always worked. Got rid of it when we thought we were done RV'n...kind of wish we didn't do that.

    National Forrest bird. NO decoys, no bait. Just insanity and frustration. Thank you though!

    I have a Coleman Fold N Go and a Camp Chef single butane. If it's just the 2 of us, I'll take the Camp Chef. If it's a group camping thing, I'll take both.

    The Tembo Tusk Skottle is the signature overland stove though. If you want street (wilderness?) cred, that's the way to go. It's supposed to be very nice though, so it's functional and you can flex with it.

    Full base camp system with the extension for the jetboil cup also.

    It’s packability is the main reason followed by its temperature controls and finally it’s ability to connect accessories and expand if necessary. But if I’m backpacking I’m just taking the cup itself.
